    Hi everyone,

    We recently announce the General Availability of Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS) authentication for Azure Files! By enabling integration with Azure AD DS, you can mount your Azure file share over SMB using Azure AD credentials from Azure AD DS domain joined Windows VMs with NTFS ACLs enforced. For more details, please refer to our blog post:http://aka.ms/azure-file-aadds-authentication-ga-blog.

    A part of the GA announcement, we shared the upcoming plan to extend the authentication support to Active Directory (AD) either hosted on-premises or in cloud. If you need an Azure Files solution with AD authentication today, you can consider installing Azure File Sync (AFS) on your Windows File Servers where AD integration is fully supported.

    If you are interested to hear future updates on Azure Files Active Directory Authentication, please complete this sign-up survey:https://aka.ms/AzureFilesADAuthPreviewSurvey.

    Thanks,
    Azure Files Team

    Can you add IP Restrictions to Azure File Storage to prevent all connections except a white list of addresses?

    I'm aware of SAS Tokens, but this does not meet the requirement, as we want to use Azure File Storage as a generic File Share and not have to code anything to use it.
