Hello,

 

I have configured Azure Files with my Active Directory, and I would like to migrate my on-premises file server with NTFS rights to Azure Files.
What are the necessary steps?

thank you

Hi

You can use Storage Service Migration for that .

Step 0: Install Storage Migration Service and check firewall ports
Step 1: Create a job and inventory your servers to figure out what to migrate
Step 2: Transfer data from your old servers to the destination servers
Step 3: Cut over to the new servers
