i would like to use the possibility to sync SharePoint libraries automatically.
Therefore I've already created a new profile (type: administrative template) and set the "Configure team site libraries to sync automatically" setting. (Enabled, a Display Name, and the Value)
I've found out the library ID as described here via "copy library id" within a SharePoint website. (Click on "syncronize" and then select "copy library id".
At my administrative templates profile i've put the whole string copied before into the value.
Unfortunately this isn't working. The profile is applied correctly, but the OneDrive client isn't syncronizing.
That's why i dived deeper into the registry:
At this point I've found the applied setting, so the client is receiving this setting.
By the way: I also tried converting the string i got from the "copy library id" as i was told to here.
Any idea, why this isn't working?

Thank you for the link.
Everyhting I've read so far was about "it's working".
It seems to bee a timing problem / bug.
"might work... or not".
This is of course inacceptable.

worthy of an update. I have found that this actually works. but it takes days to take effect. The policy applies the registry keys very quickly, but the time at which it takes for OneDrive to show the drives on a machines is waaaay longer than 8 hours. in my case, days and days. up to 4-5. but they do appear.
On thinking about it. it seemed to take 8 hours or so after I rebooted. so it might be worth testing a reboot and them wait up to 8 hours.

@Jimbo_Jones The same for me, after setting it up it didn't work. Waited the weekend, and suddenly the synced document library appeared.
Strange and frustrating....
