    Thanks for your feedback, folks. We have been working towards resolving the locations for IPv6 logins. Currently, a subset of such logins are getting resolved for location and the % will gradually go up. Are you seeing some of your IPv6 logins with resolved location?

    I've had users with failed logins across multiple organizations in the last 3 days. Charter is using IPv6 and users are getting blocked.

    As you mentioned, we initiate a change detection job once every 24 hours to enumerate the Azure file share and scan for changes. This is required for the Azure file share because Azure Files currently lacks a change notification mechanism like Windows Server has. Long term we will add this capability and have automatic immediate sync.

    There is now a way to trigger sync to happen on files that are placed directly in the Azure File share. With this new cmdlet you can point sync to particular files or directories and have it look for changes right then. This is intended for scenarios where some type of automated process in Azure is doing the file edits or migrations are done by an admin (like moving a new directory of files into the share). For end-user changes, the best thing to do is install Azure File Sync in an IaaS VM…

    My UseCase is as follows:
    Client is getting rid of their on-prem infrastructure and wants to move everything to the cloud. They have a small file server with 2TB of large radiology images stored locally. We want to cache the active project files to a local sync server for their line of business application to access without syncing the files over onedrive to each machine.

    I'm looking for the azurefiles sync client to do what sharepoint does, create a stub for all files in the cloud and download them to the local file sync server when needed. I also want to upload files to the local file sync server and have that sync the files to the cloud.

    Currently, we would have to map the azure fileshare and the local azure files cache drive and if it's local great, if it's not goto the cloud mapped drive.

    DFS has a concept of a shared namespace, azure files should use that concept to point clients to the closest copy of the files and if the file isn't in that location, download it to that location then open it and keep it cached based on the caching policy.

    We are working on this but we don’t have a public ETA to share at this time. We will keep you updated as we get closer.

    Vendor claims their product didn't make changes to our environment, but we have evidence the enterprise application used only by them made the change. There is no way to prove what happened without this capability.

    Thanks for this feedback. Long term, we would like the File REST API for Azure Files to be a superset of the functionality available in SMB. In the short term, we are looking to close some of the gaps in the API that are most painful, like the file attributes that you can set via SMB but not File REST.

    We would appreciate further feedback on this item, in particular feedback on the things that you can do today over SMB but not REST to help us prioritize the order in which we close the gap!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files
