Linked Service (File System) - Connection Failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I created a new Dataset (Azure File Storage -> csv) in ADF. While setting up the Linked Service, I wanted to test it by clicking on "Test Connection" button but I got an Error message:

    Connection failed

    Error occurred when trying to access the file in Folder '\\xxxdataanalyticsdev.file.core.windows.net\xxx-repo', File filter: ''.

    But why does the Connection Fail? I then created an Azure Blob Storage and used the same storage "xxxdataanalyticsdev" in the Linked Service Path and it worked without any problems.

    I also read the documentation and searched for similar issues but still I could not solve my Problem.


    I would be very thankful, if you can help me.

  • The Problem was the Username. I used the E-Mail adress instead the username itself.
