Connect Windows Server 2008 R2 (actually SBS 2011) to shared Azure folder - access denied RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When trying to connect a Windows Server 2008 R2 Sp1 to a shared Azure Storage folder i get "Access Denied" - but when trying with same credentials on a Windows 10 client or Windows Server 2012 it works just great. I know there is a difference in the SMB version, 2.1 and 3.0, but I thought both where supported...

    Any suggestions for a lost guy ...

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-files/

    It appears that while Azure File storage supports both SMB 2.1 and 3.0 - the access from on Premises requires SMB 3.0.

    Are you connecting from a VM in Azure? Are you connecting on from your on Prem network through a VPN?

    Let me know more about your setup so I can lab it up.
