OneDrive restriction

I have below queries:

  1. Can we prevent users to unlink their PC from syncing to OneDrive? We want users to sync and back up their local known folders to OneDrive.

  2. Can we login, activate and sync onedrive on user's behalf. We send email communication but they tend to ignore after assigning the license.


Please note i have gone through those silent configuration, known folder move and implemented those GPOs, but nothing worked.

Hello,

That is odd. Can you provide the steps you have taken to implement the GPO's. We use KFM, Enforced by intune for multiple clients. Works like a charm.

Have you for example configured your tenant ID in GPO?

We have implemented it via AD GPO. Computers are not joined to Azure AD but to on premise. SilentAccountConfig, tenant etc. all settings are enabled see attached pic. But users once logged in to their machine, have to manually launch onedrive sync app, sign in, click next - next - next and configure accordingly.

Hi @GoodResource,
Do you want to Choose which folder to sync in OneDrive? If yes, you can refer to this article:

What's the meaning of "Can we login, activate and sync OneDrive on user's behalf."? Do you want to login, activate and sync with Administrator account?

Try to provide more information about this problem and I'm glad to help you.
