    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

    It is necessary to be able to have records of the users who make modifications to the files (granularly). In the same way as file server auditing in a local environment

    Thank you for your feedback! As we work to get Azure Files to parity with Windows File Server, we absolutely agree this functionality is required. For now, I’m leaving this item open so we can collect feedback on it – please vote for it to help us prioritize it!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries

    I have registered the storage account in AD On Premise to use authentication via Azure AD, with this the authentication to access Azure Files is done through the network user of the computer (desktop computer joined to the domain). With that, it is only necessary to create the unit mapping GPO (without specifying username and password)
