Cannot access Azure Files Share from Azure Portal

I cannot access Files Shares in a StorageAccount through Azure Portal.

It's currently configure as:

Public network access

  • Enabled from all networks

I'm just trying to access it from the Azure Portal with my Global Admin account to adjust configurations.

I get the following error message:

"This machine doesn't seem to have access."

Important note: Trying to access from the Azure Portal for management stuff, not even SMB or NFS. Just trying from the Azure Web portal. i don't see which kind of permissions can block this access as the Storage Account RBAC is currently set to allow Global Admin to connect to it.

I can manage everything else in the storage account but not any Files Share.

    Did you tried incognito mode to try out the file shares pane in the portal? Also try another browser if you have onthe device.

    Hope this helps.
