azure files sync 200 share with only one server

Raymond 1 Reputation point

Hi all

I have a problem. I am try to use azure file sync but said that endpoint server can’t be done and fail. 9 created when goes to create another sync endpoint to the same server another directory failed.

This is my scenario:
i have only 1 server (fileserver) onpremise with 200 share. I’m planning to create storage account with the same 200 shares and using azure file sync connect those directory separate with each share.

200 sync groups (shares) with only one on premise server.

There’s a limit or something?
This is possible.

    The limits for Azure File Sync are published here. It is possible you were hitting one of the limits. There is a hard limitation of 30 server endpoints per server which would make your scenario not possible.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have further questions or issues and we will do our best to assist.
