Your network contains an on-premises Active Directory forest named contoso.com. The forest is synced to an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) tenant named contoso.com and an Azure AD Domain Services (Azure AD DS) domain named contoso-aad.com.
You have an Azure Storage account named Storage1 that contains a file share named Share1.
You configure NTFS permissions on Share1. You plan to deploy a virtual machine that will be used by several users to access Share1.
You need to ensure that the users can access Share1.
Which type virtual machine should you deploy?
You join the Windows Server virtual machine to the Azure AD DS-managed domain, here named contoso-aad.com.
Note: Azure Files supports identity-based authentication over SMB (Server Message Block) (preview) through Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Domain
Services. Your domain-joined Windows virtual machines (VMs) can access Azure file shares using Azure AD credentials.
Azure AD authentication over SMB is not supported for Linux VMs for the preview releasOnly Windows Server VMs are supported.
