Using Windows Azure File Service for Symbols Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to understand how to use the Windows Azure File Service (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsazurestorage/archive/2014/05/12/introducing-microsoft-azure-file-service.aspx) for a Symbols Service.  I have not been able to find any documentation to help guide me with this specifically.  Most of the guides I have found discuss creating a VM and File Server in Azure.

  • Hi,

    Azure Files can only be used from an Azure VM within the same region as the storage account.
    it will work when setup a symbol server for azure VMs, if you trying to setup a symbol server for external client machines then this won’t work.
