SMB File Share Access is Denied HyperV Cluster

Ilia Sergi 1 Reputation point


I have a problem with a file share via HyperV Cluster.
I have two nodes, Host 1, Host 2, a bunch of VMs, NTFS storage. Both of the hosts and all VMs are in the same AD domain ("base"). I created a file server role - BASEFS (the same AD), attached NTFS storage. Then I created a file share, adding SMB Share to the BASEFS File Server, and then there is an error "SMB Error - Access is Denied". I checked my AD, all is good, have access from Host 1 to Host 2 and vice versa. What could be a problem and where to start? :)

    Hi @Ilia Sergi

    If you get an Access Denied error when attempting to access or view SMB shares from a server, the password you supplied might be wrong or the SMB server might be part of a different domain.

    This issue also occurs because the target folder on the SMB share is missing the SYNCHRONIZE access control entries.

    To resolve this issue, use the ICACLS utility to set the desired permissions that contain the Synchronize bit.

    Hope this resolves your Query!!
