OneDrive for Business on RDS

Hi

 

We are using document libraries on Sharepoint Online in place of a Windows file server.

We would like to use OneDrive for Business on RDS Server 2016 to connect some libraries but one of my contacts tells me that it cannot work.

Could you please tell me if it remains true with windows server 2016 and the latest version of OneDrive for Business?

Hey, thanks,  found this article before, but continued to search as I don't know if this applied to RDS where the user has UPD's?

 

Just looking for some clear statement.

@Nigel Archer - Hey,

 

No I did not get any info out of MS or through countless hours of searching - however, I did test this on the  RDS and there is no Files-On-Demand option so it starts to fill up users UPD's and not the most ideal scenario. 

 

The only alternatives at the moment that I am able to find are: 

 

1 - https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/office/OneDriveMapper-automaticall-d7d498b0 

Mapping using this script which seems to keep it persistent each time the user logs into their session. Seems to be a popular choice.

 

2 - Zee Drive http://www.thinkscape.com/Map-Network-Drives-To-Office-365-OneDrive/ -  Another popular choice, but paid for - However, Myles Jeffery who own it is really solid dude and helpful. 

Hope this helps

Thanks Adam. We have used OneDriveMapper for our customers but it does suffer from being based on WebDAV and Office 365 changes.
