remote run FileShare mount command result in disconnected state

Wang, Jane 61 Reputation points

We followed Invoke-Command -ComputerName COMPUTER -ScriptBlock {​​​ COMMAND }​​​ -credential USERNAME
and run remotely against Azure Linux VM from script. The script looks like the following

az vm run-command invoke --command-id RunPowerShellScript --name test-vm -g omms-pep-daily \
--scripts 'param([string]$storageAccessKey)' \
'$resourceGroupName = <Resource Group Name>' \
'$storageAccountName = <Storage Account Name>' \
'$shareName = <File share name>' \
'Test-NetConnection -ComputerName "$" -Port 445' \
'$accountKey = ConvertTo-SecureString -String <Storage Account Key> -AsPlainText -Force' \
'$credential = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList "Azure\$storageAccountName", $accountKey' \
'New-PSDrive -Name "Z" -PSProvider FileSystem -Root "\$\$shareName" -Credential $credential -Persist -Scope Global'

This mounted the fileshare in a discounted state. On the other hand, we do not have the access to run the script from within the Linux VM, although running from the VM directly works.

Is there a way to mount FileShare onto VM remotely, using the extension cmd, or any other way?

    @Wang, Jane Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    If the issue still persists, I would recommended refer this Troubleshoot Azure Files problems in Linux (SMB) (This article lists common problems that are related to Azure Files when you connect from Linux clients. It also provides possible causes and resolutions for these problems)
