Hi Experts,

Will Filestream works with Mount Point? After enabling filestream and restarting the service the filestream share name is not showing up in SQL Server management Studio.

Not sure where you are looking for the share name in SSMS - properties for the server maybe? I think those display from querying serverproperties(). What do you get if you execute:
SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('FilestreamShareName')


You can change the name of of the share on the SQL Server Configuration Manager Filestream tab but you can't point it to a specific share - it just doesn't work that way. The share isn't a regular windows share. It's a virtual reference to the NTFS data container which is local to the server.

Thanks Sue.
I understand that and I can see the fileshare name in Configuration Manager and through query but its not showing up in server properties and when trying to access the path its throwing error 'Share not accessible'. Normally the name should come up in Server Properties and this made me think that it might be something to do with mount points.

Fixed after reenabling filestream in both nodes and restarting the services and did failover.
