Hi,
How we can share the azure storage files on the Azure VM.

Requirements:
Shared drive should be visible to all the users of the VM. In current situation share drive is visible for only user who is mapping drive or running the script.

How to enforce for all other users?

    Hello @Tariq Younas

    You may use a group policy to auto-mount the file share, user need to use AD DS authentication for this to work, If you are using the storage account key, it will not work
