SSIS cannot access folders in UNC share after UNC share app server migrated to azure

Hi All,

We have an application server 'A' that runs SSIS packages in database server B . App server A is migrated to azure. IAAS migration..just lift and shift. This app server A also holds files flat file shares which SQL Server SSIS needs to access. The application could run the packages without errors prior to migration. After migration packages are getting failed saying 'Access to the folder is denied.

SQL service account is given delegated permissions to file share server host in AD. Also, FS is granted permissions to SQL service accounts.

While troubleshooting, packages can be executed separately by SQL server agent job by using the proxy account. But packages cant be run when it's triggered from the application server using application codes

The database server can connect to other on-prem file shares without issues. it just not works with the migrated FS.

Can you guide how to troubleshoot this? Tried to run process monitor but couldn't capture.

OS-Windows 2008 ENT
Migration-->lift and shift IAAS..only host IP changed in application server.

    A clear error message, it's a permissions issue.
    If the Job with a proxy acount can access, but not the application, then because the app runs under an other security context (different account). You have to grant permissions for that different account as well.
