We are trying to access Azure file storage from our application which is hosted over the web, out side Azure infrastructure.

I am able to map a drive of Azure in our network and using windows explorer I am able to upload the file there but when I am connecting same drive in our application then its not able to see.

FYI our application is a Web application. Which is running under a user configured in AppPool. When I am trying to access Azure mapped drive location from application then it say directory not found.

Probable reason could be AppPool user is not having access on Azure storage. How can I assign permission to our AppPool user to access Azure File storage?

please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

  • Drives are mapped per-user. Also, do not rely on mapped drives or even Windows file sharing. – Daniel B Apr 1 at 10:14
