Azure Storage - User is unable to join azure shared network drive.

I have tried to join the user with access keys and it will work for the initial time but once you restart the pc it will then not let the user in again. I gave the user Access Control (Contributor), is there something else I am missing? I am able to add myself without problems but I'm assuming that is because I am an admin.

@AaronM-1346 Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

Can you let me know which version of Windows you are using? If using Windows 7, please refer to this known issue where the mapped drive disconnects after a regular interval of inactivity.

If using Windows 10, can you confirm that all the latest updates are on the system?

You can also use AzFileDiagnostics and SmbClientLogs scripts for Windows to detect common issues. Please try and run the script and share the output of the same after you restart the PC.


Thank you!

@AaronM-1346 Please let me know what commands/steps you followed to add this network drive. Please refer to this document which talks about adding persistent network drives and please see if that helps. If not, please do let me know. Thanks!

Mapped network drives. You can use the Persist parameter of New-PSDrive to create Windows mapped network drives. Unlike temporary PowerShell drives, Windows mapped network drives aren't session-specific. They're saved in Windows and they can be managed by using standard Windows tools, such as File Explorer and net use.

Please check this example: Create persistent and temporary drives. Hope this helps.

Please let us know if you have any further questions and we will be glad to assist you further. Thank you!
