Linux Azure Files mount problem

In the case of:

mount error(13): Permission denied


mount error(16): Device or resource busy

probably your kernel doesn’t support encryption CIFS, so please Disable “Secure transfer required”

And use this command:

sudo mount -t cifs // /mnt -o vers=2.1,username=YOUR_PASSWORD_ENDING==,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777,sec=ntlmssp

An unencrypted transfer is working only in the same region where is your VM.

If you receive something like this:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on

you need to install cifs:

sudo apt install cifs-utils
