OneDrive Group Policy Application

We are trying to configure the OneDrive client behavior on our servers to prevent the clients from using too much drive space. The group policy is being written to the servers registry correctly but it seems like every policy that requires a tenet ID isn't applying.

We followed the MS documentation and set the tenet ID but they don't take effect.
Is there something special I'm supposed to do other than just paste the plain tenet ID into the policy?

This is a fake tenet ID.

Hi @MichaelMcGough-6898,
Welcome to Q&A forum!

Please check to make sure the tenant id you entered is correct. Please run the following command to update the Group Policy immediately after configuring the policy to check this issue.
gpupdate.exe /force

If it does not work, please try to set the following registry key to check this issue:
[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\OneDrive\DiskSpaceCheckThresholdMB]"1111-2222-3333-4444"=dword:0005000

where "1111-2222-3333-4444" is the tenant ID and 0005000 sets a threshold of 5000 MB.

For reference: Set the maximum size of a user's OneDrive that can download automatically

Any updates, please let me know.

The Tenant ID is correct, we are using what the Azure AD portal is displaying.
I have that same registry key configured. But the client doesn't respond to it.

Hi @MichaelMcGough-6898,
Thanks for your reply. I apologize for late reply.
Please note that "Set the maximum size of a user's OneDrive that can download automatically" policy is used with Silently sign in users to the OneDrive sync app with their Windows credentials on devices that don't have OneDrive Files On-Demand enabled.
Any updates or questions, please let me know.
