Help! Where is my Client Access Point?

So you are building a Scale Out File Server (SoFS).  You are all happy because you read one of my articles (or POSSIBLY someone else’s… but really, why would you hurt me like that?) and you know you are good to go.  You have your cluster, you have your drives, and you have created your SoFS role.  Now all that’s left to do is to add a file share to the role.

Huh?  What did you do wrong?

Relax… you didn’t do anything wrong.  When you create the SoFS role in Failover Cluster Manager, it will take some time to propagate the namespace throughout Active Directory.  How long? UCA.  However depending on how large your network topology is, it can take a little time.  Just go for lunch, a smoke, maybe get out and stretch your legs, go for a jog… when you come back you should be ready to go!
