I configured my file server for Windows azure pack. I configured as per

All credentials are properly added in file server configuration screen. But still I am facing "Network Path Error" while creating websites from tenant. Is there any way to troubleshoot configuration issues?.

Any help would be helpful.


The network path was not found. at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.Directory.InternalCreateDirectory(String fullPath, String path, Object dirSecurityObj, Boolean checkHost) at System.IO.Directory.InternalCreateDirectoryHelper(String path, Boolean checkHost) at Microsoft.Web.Hosting.Administration.WebCloudProvider.PerformFileServerAction[R](Func`1 action, String userName, String domain, String password) at Microsoft.Web.Hosting.Administration.WebCloudProvider.PerformFileServerAction[R](Func`1 action) at Microsoft.Web.Hosting.Administration.WebCloudProvider.CreateWebSpaceDirectory(String path) at Microsoft.Web.Hosting.Administration.WebCloudProvider.CreateWebSpace(String subscriptionName, String webspaceName, String planName, String storageDomain, String fileShare, String& storageVolumeName, String& webSpaceFolder) at Microsoft.Web.Hosting.Administration.SubscriptionController.CreateWebSpace(String subscriptionName, WebSpace webSpace) at Microsoft.Web.Hosting.Administration.WebCloudController.GetOrCreateWebSpace(IRepositoryContext db, String subscriptionName, String webspaceName, SiteWithWebSpace site, WebSpace& webSpace, WebPlan& webPlan, WebSystem& webSystem) at Microsoft.Web.Hosting.Administration.WebCloudController.CreateSite(String subscriptionName, String webspaceName, SiteWithWebSpace site) at SyncInvokeCreateSite(Object , Object[] , Object[] ) at System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.SyncMethodInvoker.Invoke(Object instance, Object[] inputs, Object[]& outputs) at System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.DispatchOperationRuntime.InvokeBegin(MessageRpc& rpc) at System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.ImmutableDispatchRuntime.ProcessMessage5(MessageRpc& rpc) at System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.ImmutableDispatchRuntime.ProcessMessage31(MessageRpc& rpc) at System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.MessageRpc.Process(Boolean isOperationContextSet)

The error message is fairly specific: The network path was not found. 

Have you verified you can hit that network path from the calling server?

You can also check the audit log of calling server and the file server and see if the credentials you're using are getting validated too.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for reply.

Yes, All network path and credentials are validated properly with all FileUser and owner. File Server is accessible from all servers in network.

I also used "Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer Tool" to find configuration issues for website.

From the report it seems that all configuration are validated successfully. But still I am not able to solve the issue. From the event viewer log on Management server it seems that it is not able to create directory on file server. 

Please help,
