How can an admin scan all users PC (no mobile device) and get the status of each user OneDrive synchro.

 

For example sometime people don't necessary pay attention to sync status and think everything if going well.

 

How can we monitor (by powershell script or other) every sync problem that occured on different users device in order to be able send some advice to the users.

 

Thanks.

One would expect that such issues are logged in the event log, however MS seems to have a different opinion on the subject. There are several items on uservoice for such request (for example https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/8993923-onedrive-event-log), not much tracktion on them though...

I totally agree with the suggestion. If we want to give proactive service to end user. We should have access to log files, event logs or any other alerts
