Which version of Linux am I able to mount a share(Azure Files) from ?


  • Hi,

    I was looking through the articles below and understood there`s an limitation in the supported linux version for "Azure Files".

    It looks like only the Ubuntu images in the portal are supported for Azure Files. (12 May 2014.)

    I need to know if the ”OpenLogic7.0 VM” in the Azure portal、 vm gallery`s supported at the present time.

    I found a similiar how-to-video but the one  below is using Ubntu.

    I`m all ears for the how to for OpenLogic7.0.

    Logically it seems that if I`m possibble to install cifs in centos(open logic), and make a mount point

    then I`m able to create a share(Azure Files) but dunno for sure Azure really supports my demands.

    Thanks in advance!!

  • Hi,

    OpenLogic 7.0 is supported by Azure File Share, just make sure you are using SMB 2.1 instead of SMB 3.0.
