    Automatically setup Onedrive at login

    Now here's a fun ol' question.

    Basically we now have Office 365 and want a students home area to also be their Onedrive. We have managed to set this up for multiple users on a single machine, and it remembers their settings on that machine.
    However with around 1600 users, we cannot do this every time someone logs onto a different machine for the first time. So we need to try and automate the following process at logon (this is where the fun begins)!

    Create the folder C:\Users\%username%\Onedrive\Onedrive
    Log into Onedrive depending on the user who is using the machine
    Tell Onedrive to use C:\Users\%username%\Onedrive\Onedrive as it's own drive
    Finish Onedrive setup
    Exit Onedrive so that it is not running
    Delete the final Onedrive folder in the path above
    Run a set Cmd mklink command as admin, which points the now deleted folder to the users network drive (we already have the cmd command written)
    Reopen Onedrive
    Accept the changes made (basically click OK)

    So yes, lots and lots to automate and I know this is very very ambitious.

    If anyne out there fancies taking on this mammoth task and try to offer some help, please let me know

    Thanks!

    One drive is not ready for that yet as it still needs to be authenticated on login repeatedly, especially if trying to map drives.

    Hopefully Microsoft are working towards Onedrive integration, but the last time I checked it (with windows 8) it was pretty useless.
