Azure Files, Mac users not honouring security permissions

Set up Azure Files share for testing.
Windows users work fine, and cannot access folders I've set with the appropriate permissions, as expected.

But my Apple Mac user who I got to test it is not honouring the security permissions and can access the locked folder and create and change the files.
The permissions are set to only me, Domain Admins, SYSTEM and Creator Owner... Note, he is not in domain admins and is not the CREATOR OWNER.

If anyone has any thoughts that would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

Sincere apologies that your question was not answered in a timely fashion. Azure Files with MacOS is currently only officially supported when mounting with the Storage Account Key.

Hi @deherman-MSFT ,
Thanks for your reply, that is frustrating though, as that essentially makes it useless.
Unless I am missing something, the Storage Account key gives unrestricted access to all the files in that share, regardless of file permissions?
I don't suppose you have any idea when this will be fixed?
As I'd prefer to keep to keep all my systems in one place.
Thanks,
Tim
