Die ShareDev Cologne ist eine neue Konferenz, die von den Machern der dotnet Cologne im Jahr 2015 ihren Einstand gibt: Am 11.9.2015 findet diese im Medienpark Köln statt. Die Themen drehen sich um SharePoint Server, SharePoint Online, Office 365 und Microsoft Azure. Und ich freue mich, bei diesem Event mit dabei zu sein, natürlich mit Highlights rund um das Thema
OneDrive for Business.
OneDrive for Business has several limitations. For example, in the filename. Or with the prefix “_” in the filename. Bill Baer, Senior Product Marketing Manager by Microsoft, has published on TechNet an article about several problems with filenames. Most of them has her origin on SharePoint Server. But not at all:
|Location on SD card||if you have a SD card on your device, you cannot use this card to take this as a location for OneDrive for Business data.|
|Roaming Profiles||For OneDrive for Business it is not possible to use it with roaming profiles.|
|network drives||You cannot use OneDrive for business on a network drive. Therefore, and this is a great custom wish, you cannot give OneDrive for business with a fixed drive letter.
You will find several instructions on the internet, how to do that. Sometimes they will work, Sometimes not. Or not anymore.
That’s a a question about many parameters, like OS and so on.
With these restrictions it is not possible, f.e to use it on a campus with several fixed machines, to use OneDrive for Business with local synced data. If you have such an environment, you should disable OneDrive for Business with OAT before deployment, or If you have still deployed, restrict the usage with GPO (group policies).
But this will always work: Use the web-Browser to connect to your SharePoint Server 2013 (on prem) or SharePoint Online (Office 365). Then you may able to work with Office Online on your documents. And you may do Co-Authoring. And that not only with you personal data in OneDrive for business, fka Mysite. Also on all documents in team sites, where you may have access. If you may not able to work with Office Online on a specified document, you may download this document to your device. But not a complete local synchronization of all documents at all.
Admins should enable access to these documents from “outside”, then users may access these data on her own devices, and here they may synchronize all data on these devices for offline usage. And that not only with windows devices…
Last week, I received this error message form a customer:
the customers problem was, that he cannot click on the repair-function in the Microsoft Office Upload Center. The question was, which OS he is running and whether he runs also the consumer product OneDrive:
He told me:
- OS was Windows 8.1, all patches are installed
- He uses OneDrive for Business on SharePoint Online (Office 365)
- He also uses OneDrive
You must know, that the Microsoft Office Upload Center is responsible for several things, not only for OneDrive for Business, also for OneDrive:
The Microsoft Office Upload Center works also with an internal access database and this database includes OneDrive for Business and also OneDrive.. You cannot repair or clear the cache, if other processes are still running.
The following steps have to be made, to clear the cache:
End the process for OneDrive for Business
- Search for the blue cloud icon in the SysTray.
- the blue icon represents OneDrive for Business.
- Right click and end the Sync-Process for OneDrive for Business.
Stop the Sync-Process for OneDrive
- Open the windows Explorer and identify the OneDrive Symbol.
- You will find the Consumer version OneDrive directly under favorites.
- Right click on OneDrive and stop the Sync-Process.
- Wait until the blue OneDrive symbol shows a yellow exclamation mark.
Clear the cache in the Microsoft Office Upload Center
- Search in the systray for the Microsoft Office Upload Center.
- The Office Upload Center symbol is a red circle with an up arrow.
- Right click on the symbol to open the Microsoft Office Upload Center.
- Click in Settings
- Click on “empty the cache”
- End program Microsoft Office Upload Center
Restart and automatically starts the services
- Reboot you PC
- the previously stopped services will automatically started.
- The Synchronization process for OneDrive will continue.
- The Synchronization process for OneDrive for Business will continue.
