Can we update files in Storage Account File Shares without using SMB port.

Imran Khan 21 Reputation points

We are trying to push an application setup that is stored on Azure File Shares via http links and PowerShell Scripts and need to get an update if the install completed. The Installation script creates a CSV file and then will append the data for each user in the excel sheet that installs the application. As of now we have the path of the CSV file to a local NAS drive and have users connect VPN just to update the file. Most of the users have SMB blocked from ISP side.

Is it possible to achieve this without using SMB protocol.

    The SMB protocol is currently the preferred file share protocol used on-premises today. There are various ways to workaround this such as using VPN, REST API, or Azure File Sync. If you are are already using http links to store the files perhaps moving towards a solution with blob storage might be a better solution for you.
