Why I can't see anything in NFS Azure file share storage browser and I can't do any basic operations into it?

Julien Rateau 31 Reputation points

I created an NFS Azure file share by following this documentation https://learn.microsoft.com/fr-fr/azure/storage/files/storage-files-quick-create-use-linux. I mounted the network disk into a vm and I createad a basic file into the mounted folder. I expected to see this file into storage browser but I didn't.

I can't upload file to Azure file share to using the browser because I met this error:

Moreover, I can't create any directory too.

Please notice I can mount the network disk into another virtual machine, create a file and see this file .

I wonder why I can't do all the basic operations into storage browser?

Thanks in advance for your help

Kind regards,

    @Julien Rateau Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A. I apologize for the delay in responding to your question.

    I understand that you are having issues with NFS Azure file share where you are unable to perform the actions you mentioned above using the Storage Browser. Can you please confirm the following?

    1. How are you accessing the NFS File share? Private endpoint or Public endpoint or via VPN/Express Route?
    2. Can you try re-mounting again and see if that helps?

    Thank you!
