    Hi folks,

    We are evaluating what we can do to address this feedback and would very much appreciate your continued votes and suggestions on it.

    One alternative to mounting the share on-premises over port 445 is Azure File Sync, which enables you to create a cache of an Azure file share on an on-premises Windows Server. Azure File Sync only sends data over the Azure Files HTTPS (using the File REST APIs). You can learn more about Azure File Sync here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-sync-files-planning

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files

    Wow, 4 years later and no traction? How is this still an open issue? Azure Files is such a great solution completely opposed by using 445. Why doesnt using a VPN solve this problem? We need a solution! Please help us Microsoft!

    Hey folks, sorry for the late update. Some backend changes were made to alleviate this issue but I believe it doesn’t solve it for everyone yet. Let me go get some details and come back with a better update. Thanks!

    I agree!!!!! What is the point of having a benefit that cannot be associated with your current O365 account. All this allows for is testing and practice (outside of your own organization of course). As a partner paying for the subscription you cannot even leverage it for your own benefit. This is a HUGE FAILURE!!! Very disappointing.

    Changing the hostname of a vm within the system properties does not change the Azure Host Name found in the Azure portal. At this time there is no way of changing the name without deleting the vm, keeping the disks, and attaching them to a new vm with the name you want to change it to.
