IIS shared configuration with Azure Files


  • Hi Gents,

    I am trying to configure an IIS shared configuration to store the config on Azure Files.  I have followed the following steps to set it up but to no avail

    • Created local account the the storage account name and Shared Key as a password
    • Exported the current configuration file to C:\temp
    • Mapped the Azure File share to Z:
    • Copied the content of C:\temp to Z:
    • Disconnected Z:
    • Configured the shared configuration to Azrue File Services endpoint using UNC

    So far it was going great.  When i come to add a website (Modify the shared configuration file) I get an access denied error.

    Any pointers?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    The only way I could make it work is to save the pass in the local profile for each user that needs to update the config file. 

    cmdkey / /user:storageAccountName /pass:storageKey
