Onedrive for Business first steps

Copper Contributor

Hello,

could you help me setup onedrive for business for the fist time, on admin.microsoft.com I ordered onedrive for business plan 1, I have connected my company name domain but during this procedure no dns entries to configure were displayed, no matter of that domain was verified and added.

So what's now, how to connect to onedrive business using my company domain? 

Thanks.

Hi @Tutek1025,

to set up OneDrive for Business using your company domain, you can follow these steps:

  1. Add Your OneDrive for Business Account:
    Log in to your Microsoft 365 for business account. If your OneDrive for Business account isn't added automatically, go to Settings > Add account > Add Storage Account > OneDrive for Business, and enter your credentials.

  2. Configure Microsoft 365 Business Standard with Your Domain:
    If you have a Microsoft 365 Business Standard subscription, you can either add an existing domain or purchase a new one. Follow these steps:

    • On the "How you'll sign in" page during Microsoft 365 Business Standard sign-up, select "Create a new business email account (advanced)".
    • In the "Add domain" step, enter your preferred domain name.
    • Complete the steps to "Add DNS records to connect your domain" for domain verification.

Keep in mind that changing the SharePoint (OneDrive) domain name for your organization in Microsoft 365 isn't possible.
The default OneDrive for Business URL format is: https://tenant-my.sharepoint.com/xxxx/.
