So I am using a solely windows 10 environment connected to AzureAD and users need to have there folders (Docs & Desktop) relocated to OneDrive to be able to give some kind of portability/desk hopping.

 

Changing the folder location not a problem, making sure OneDrive is loaded with no interaction on the other hand seems to be impossible? Even with SSO it still prompts for username.

 

I can script WebDav connections as mapped network drives tho which is great except for then there is no file if they are offline.

 

So to the crux of the question is I dont really know how these options operate behind the scenes to know any fatal floors. Is using windows offline files on a mapped network a viable alternative to the onedrive client software?

Hmm. I cant see this beginning or ending well.

 

Its Onedrive for business in the backend you're connecting to?

 

Its such a terrible beast I just cant see this being anything but a nightmare. If you do somehow kludge this together, I believe it will only work on one or two machines for a day or two before you strike issues. 

 

Heed my warning: Look elsewhere for another solution.

Interesting, care to be more specific about which aspects you think are dodgy?

I've heard anecdotally that it's been improved and isn't as horrible as it once was.

Yes, they've fixed some things, but broken other things.

 

One step forward, two steps back. Its just juggling issues. Avoid.

I'm having good success with the new 'beta' OD4B... it's essentially a tweaked version of the non business one which has selective folder sync.  And also doesn't double up the amount of storage in your computer (with the normal OD4B if you sync 4gig, you end up with 8 gig used).

 

Originally the beta sync client only worked with OneDrive, but now it also works with SharePoint. Yes there are some teething issues, but it's a heck of a lot better than the old OD4B sync client.

I think onedrive group policy is used to configure these settings. There is a special onedrive deployment package for this I think.
