    [office365] ProPlus Student Advantage OneDrive

    Hi all, hope theres a 365 guru around this morning,

    Got our office 365 proplus student advantage yesyerday. 'Microsoft O365ProPlusOpenStudents ShrdSvr ALNG SubsVL OLV NL 1Mth Acdmc Stdnt w/Faculty' Our active directory is synced with the 365 portal. The TXT record is in place and my users can logon with thier exchange email and password.

    I've assigned a test user the office package in the portal but they cant access Onedrive. For example logging into word using the 365 credentials then adding one drive as a service results in 'This type of account doesn't work with this particular service. Please enter an email address associated with a different account.' If I use the same credentials to signup for a standard onedrive account from https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-gb/ it returns this 'That Microsoft account doesn't exist. Enter a different email address or get a new account.'

    office 2013 onedrive for business is asking for a sharepoint location so confused there too. I noticed in the 365 portal advanced setup theres a check box for sharepoint but if I tick that and go through the process nothing much seems to happen.

    Do i need to signup for the free A2 plan to enable onedrive and web apps?

    many thanks (i'd go on but i'm now late for work) in advance

    I'd also be interested in knowing the answer to this as I am experiencing exactly the same issue.

    Hi,
    For a user to get a OneDrive - they must have a SharePoint license either from the A2 or above type.

    Terminology check:

    OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) = consumer service, accessed with a Microsoft Account (aka Windows Live ID). Not part of Office 365.

    OneDrive for business (formerly SkyDrive Pro) = school managed service, accessed with an Office 365 ID (aka ORG-ID, MOSID, etc.). Every Office 365 Education user gets an Office 365 ID. Requires SharePoint Online as part of Plan A2.
