Unable to map fileshare to local drive on Azure VM


  • I have been attempting to map a Azure file share to my Windows Server on the Azure Cloud.  I entered the following command:

    note: I have replaced the real account name with accountname and I have replaced the file share name with myfileshare.  The access key was replaced with <accountkey>

    net use z:\\\myfileshare /u:acountname <accountkey>

    After I enter those commands in the Powershell, I get the following error:

    net :System error 67 has occured.

    At line:1 char:1

    +net use z:\\\myfileshare /u:accountname <accountkey>


    +CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (System error 67 has occured. :String) [], RemoteException

    + FUllyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError

    The network name cannot be found.

    I have no idea why this is not working so please help.
