I have a customer with Office 365 business premium subscriptions that he got primarily for exchange and office apps. However now that he is expanding, he's increasing the number of computers and employees he has. He has a NAS and we've duplicated the usernames and passwords on each local computer and the nas, so that logging in with an account on the PC automatically logs in to the nas when they go to the share (A server would have been better, but at the time he had limited resources and only a few employees).
So with new employees, instead of having to add each user to each computer, I've decided to join them to Azure AD so that as long as each computer is azure ad joined (or connected...what is the proper terminology?) then whenever we create new users, they can login to any computer. The issue I'm having is trying to get NAS access for each user without having to login to the NAS on each user for each PC. So what I tried was taking the "username" from the azure ad logged in user and replicated that username to the nas with the same password but it didnt work. Here's my example:
- O365 account: email@example.com
- Path in windows "C:\users\bobsmith"
- Assumption: username is "bobsmith"
- NAS account: bobsmith
- Password is same on both NAS and O365
However when trying to access the NAS, username and password prompt come up, which means it's not passing the authentication through.
