In a queue for a week for Azure Files preview...

    General discussion

  • Hi,

    I signed up to the Azure Files preview over a week ago and I am still in a queue.  Is this normal?

  • Apologies if I wasn't clear.  I already did that.  A week ago.

    That's what I meant by "I signed up".

  • Same here, it would be very nice to get this feature - be good to get an idea of what sort of timeframe we're talking about...

  • We are slowly opening up access, but based on the very high demand the wait may be awhile.   You will receive email once your access is approved.

  • I opened a support ticket and was told it could be up to 14 days.

    I think Azure is great, but some method of seeing an estimated queue length would be good.  If only to set expectations.  I thought it would be a few hours, rather than weeks.

  • Same here, we really need to test this in near future for a cutting edge deadline :-)

    I already received the activation e-mail, but the function is not available in the storage options.

    Any advice what to do?
