    Transferring on premise files to Onedrive

    Hi all,

    So, my boss met with Microsoft today in regards to our EES agreement and they told her that we are eligible for A2...(which I knew, since we are already using Lync for teachers.) Now, the next question out of her mouth was "Since the users have been created for Lync, can we move everyone's home directories to OneDrive?" Now, theoretically, I could ask the teachers to move everything for themselves, but that will cause chaos and mass confusion. Is anyone aware of a way to use powershell to move the folders from their share on premises to Onedrive? This has to be done seamlessly otherwise I am going to be buying a new SAN.

    Thanks in advance.

    Don

    Seamlessly may be tricky but you can map a folder to a one drive pro account so you may be able to script it on the server to slowly move each users stuff to their accounts, may be able to do with admin credentials but may need their 365 passwords to make it work

    Hi DonWilliams. Andre Kieft, a Microsoft Partner Technology Consultant, has written an excellent guide on how to migrate home directories to OneDrive for Business. He walks through the steps involved such as analysing your files, identifying possible issues, and then options for the actual migration. Full details here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/akieft/ar...drive-pro.aspx

    Thank you for your replies. I probably should have done a google search for Skydrive migration instead of One Drive...since OneDrive is still somewhat new.

    Myles, do you recommend ADFS for SSO when it comes to Office 365? Or make the users continue to sign in?

    Thanks from across the pond...

    Hi Don. I only have a limited experience with ADFS and SSO for Office 365 so take my advice with caution You may like to create a new post specifically asking about that.

    If your goal is to make the sign in experience of users seamless with Office 365 then ADFS would certainly help towards that, but there is the overhead of server requirements and maintenance to take in to consideration, and then of course high availability; if ADFS goes down then users will not be able to sign in to Office 365 from the corporate network or externally.

    SSO is way better for users especially if you have Office 365 which will then sign on transparently
