  • Hi Arvind,

    Currently there is no plan to incorporate Azure File Share in Oracle Linux 6.x.
    However, the work to incorporate Azure File share in Oracle Linux 7 is under progress.

  • Hi Arvind,

    Is this query regarding Azure Files Share feature?
    If yes, I'm Afraid Azure Files is not supported in Oracle Linux 6.4.
    However, a request has been raised with the Product group for this feature and they might consider it in the future.

    Regards,
    Malar.

  • Azure Files uses SMB 2.1 protocol. Oracle Linux does not support SMB 2.1. YOu will have to use a distribution that supports SMB  2.1 protocol.

  • Hi Malar,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    Can we have ETA to use share of Azure feature in OEL 6.4. Actually we are using our all deployment on OEL 6.4.

    Regards,

  • Thanks for the fast and clear response Nagamalar. 

    Indeed, I just tried OEL 7.0 does not work also, even though the cifs-utils version provided by the yum repository is much newer:

    cifs-utils.x86_64 0:6.2-7.el7

    For posterity, the error is: 

    mount error(5): Input/output error
    Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
