How to know if moving our on-prem file server to an Azure VM is better than using Azure File Sync
I am looking into azure for possible migration solution to move my on-premise file server.
I currently have office 365 so I have our on prem AD synced to azure via AD Connect. We also have a site to site vpn with azure. i know there is an issue with givng file permissions to users based on windows AD credentials. I also know Azure now has Azure AD DS.
My question is if I create a azure domain joined VM file server (Azure AD DS enabled) will I be able to have this file server mapped to everyone windows explorer (just like they are currently doing) and use it the same way with their on-prem file server. Their machines are regular on prem domain joined. If I make a change to the ACL rules in a folder will it have to be done directly from the azure vm file server? Will the ACL permissions carry over when this file server is mapped to on prem domain joined machines?
If no, then I guess I would just use azure file sync although the storage there is more expensive.
