Join the Azure File Share to the domain.
Step 1: Download AzFilesHybrid module here.
Step 2: Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Scope Currentuser
Step 3: .\CopyToPSPath.ps1 and then Import-Module -name AzFilesHybrid
Step 4. Connect-AzAccount
Step 5: elect-AzSubscription -SubscriptionName "Azure Subscription Name"
Step6: join-AzStorageaccountForAuth -ResourceGroupName "<resource-group-name>" -Name "<storage-account-name>" -DomainAccountType "ComputerAccount" -OrganizationalUnitName "<OU--FRIENDLY-NAME>"
You can see the storage account 'addsrest' as a computer account in your domain controller as below.
You can check the properties of it below.
On the Azure portal, verify the AD DS has enabled.
Now, assign the user permission to access the resources.
Map the Azure File share as a drive to the domain-joined computer.
You will see something like below.
