After the update of Azure File storage sept. 28/29 2015 I am no longer able to connect to my Azure File Storage, from my Azure Windows Server 2012R2 virtual machine.
I try to connect and map the File storage as network drives using the "net use" command.
cmdkey /add:<storage-account-name>.file.core.windows.net /user:<storage-account-name> /pass:<storage-account-key> net use <drive-letter>: \\<storage-account-name>.file.core.windows.net\<share-name>
But i get the error message:
CMDKEY: Credential added successfully. net : System error 2148073478 has occurred. At C:\BackupScripts\Map networkdrives.ps1:5 char:1 + net use Y: \\<storage-account-name>.file.core.windows.net\<share-name> + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (System error 2148073478 has occurred.:String) , RemoteException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError
However I am perfectly able to connect to the File storage using the exact same command from my on-premises Windows 10 machine.
I have already tried the 'Disable "Secure Negotiate" on the client' workaround described in https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2686098 But that didn't solve the problem.
