It’s been a busy week for Office 365 requests. Here’s some quick notes from the field on deploying OneDrive for Business. The below instructions create a completely silent installer, if you would like a graphical confirmation presented to the user, change the Display Level=”None” to Display Level=”Full” in the configuration.xml file.
- Create network share with read and execute permission to Everyone and Domain Computers
- Download Office Deployment Tool http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36778
- Unpack exe file to network share
- Edit configuration.xml file
Configuration.xml12345678910<Configuration><Add SourcePath="\\yourserver\share\folder\" OfficeClientEdition="32"><Product ID="GrooveRetail" ><Language ID="en-us" /></Product></Add><Updates Enabled="TRUE" /><Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" /><Logging Name="Office2013ClicktoRunWindowsIntune.txt" Path="%temp%" /></Configuration>
- Change product ID to 32 or 64 as appropriate to match Office.
- Open command prompt or powershell window as Administrator
- Run command: setup.exe /download \\share\folder\configuration.xml
- Monitor taskmgr network activity to determine when download complete ~900mb for full, this should be less for ODFB only
- Run \\yourserver\share\folder\setup.exe /configure \\yourserver\share\folder\configuration.xml to install
- Check %temp%\Office2013ClicktoRunWindowsIntune.txt for errors or successful exit code
- Verify app is in add/remove programs
If prior versions of Office are also present, check for Interop Issues
If packaging for Configuration Manager, note that this installs from a static location, not the DPs. To localize on the DP, you’ll need to:
- Create a package with the sources files downloaded in step 7.
- Change the run command to %~dp0setup.exe /configure %~dp0configuration.xml
