I've setup an Azure file share, which I can connect to via smb from an Azure Virtual Server, as well as my laptop and desktop machines (both running Windows 10). However I have another Virtual Server with another host, which for some reason fails to connect. This other VS is running Server 2012, so should support SMB 3.0.

The error is...

System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

I've checked that the share address resolves correctly. I'm not sure what else to check.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


My mistake, I had previously disabled "client for Microsoft Networks". After re-enabling this it's working fine.
