  • Implementing One Drive and migrating user docs etc

    Hi guys,

    Having a real tussle with this one Ive added the ADML and ADMX files to start the implementation. The initial policy states to

    **DO THE FOLLOWING BEFORE TURNING ON THIS SETTING**
    Please update the default ADMX file template to use your tenant's ID and string for the default OneDrive folder path that you want to use.

    I cant seem to find any reference to what this means exactly? Could anyone shed some light on it for me please?

    I found the location within the ADMX file

    Code:
     <policy name="DefaultRootDir" class="User" displayName="$(string.DefaultRootDir)" explainText="$(string.DefaultRootDir_help)" key="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OneDrive\Tenants\{INSERT YOUR TENANT'S GUID HERE}" valueName="DefaultRootDir">
          <parentCategory ref="OneDriveNGSC" />
          <supportedOn ref="windows:SUPPORTED_Windows7" />
          <enabledValue>
            <string>{INSERT YOUR CHOSEN PATH HERE}</string>
       </enabledValue>
       <disabledValue>
         <string></string>
    Thank you

    Could you post the location to the reference material?
    Here's how to find your tenant ID:https://support.office.com/en-us/art...ad=US&fromAR=1

    I suspect the default path is for where you want to have the local path for the OneDrive sync but I'm not sure. I'd have to see the documentation.

      Hi,
      I managed to get this going on some machines and its working well. The machines which seem to play up are the ones with Office 2010 on, Ive pushed what I thought was OneDrive for business to their machine but it seems to run as plain old OneDrive.

      I cant seem to find an offline installer of OneDrive for business that works so Im testing with the one packed with Office 2013. Am I correct in thinking this shouldn't be a license issue?

        Microsoft merged the OneDrive and OneDrive for Business clients so they are the same thing now.

        If you used to use the OneDrive for Business client there are instructions for migrating: https://support.office.com/en-us/art...8-c20de34da6fa

          Thanks, I'm having a real time at the minute with some clients. Some machines come up with the following error when you run the initial setup of OneDrive, and the install doesn't complete. This folder does already exist on one machine but doesn't on another so I cant see what else it could be? Any thoughts?

          Thanks as always

            Looks like there's a bug in the ADMX template. It's trying to literally use %username% instead of expanding it to the current username. Take a look at this thread: https://social.technet.microsoft.com...um=winserverGP

              Nice one you were right, although strangely enough Ive now implemented a group policy to add a user environmental setting which doesn't apply. Would that be down to a rights thing even though its been pushed by gp?

                Can you give some detail on what you've configured? Maybe start a new topic if it's not related to the OneDrive ADMX.

                  Hi,
                  Ive configured the ADMX file with our tenants name and points to the location where I want the onedrive configured %userprofile%\OneDrive - tenants name getting another weird and wonderful Microsoft message when I log into the admin portal that OneDrive is not provisioned - but I go to a client and all is fine checking files are syncing.

                    Interesting. Can you post the message verbatim?

                    Have you checked the licenses (and any sublicenses) are assigned properly?

                    Here's an example screenshot. Make sure whatever version of Sharepoint Online is enabled:

                      Thanks - turns out its a current issue on O365 and OneDrive, M$ are investigating.

                      User Impact: Admins may observe that users are displayed as "OneDrive is not provisioned" within the Office 365 admin center.


                      Current status: Our investigation determined that a recent update to the environment inadvertently caused impact to an API call between the Office 365 admin center and SharePoint Online. We've developed a fix and we're preparing to deploy it to the affected environment. We're expecting the deployment to complete before Friday, July 14, 2017.

                          Hi,
                          Did you say you've implemented this redirecting user profiles to OneDrive? Im just looking at additional documentation with regards to configuring the admx and adml files I cant see a presentation table in the ADML?

                          Thanks

                            I've not used this before. But in the post, the following is added to the ADML:
                            Code:
                            in <stringtable>
                            
                                  <string id="OneDriveSyncFolder">OneDrive Sync Folder</string>     
                            
                            
                            
                            
                            in <presentationtable>
                            
                                 <presentation id="DefaultRootDir_Pres">
                                   <textBox refId="OneDriveSyncFolder">
                                    <label>OneDrive Sync Folder</label>
                                    <defaultValue>%USERPROFILE%</defaultValue>
                                  </textBox>
                                 </presentation>
                            There is no existing presentationtable.
                            Regards,

                              Ideal I thought that might be the case - is there a way to test these modified adml\admx files? I'm hesitant to put them into policy definitions until I can see they are working?

                              Scrap that I can add them to C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions
