Salamander Active Directory can now bulk provision OneDrives

We have now added the ability to bulk provision OneDrives to Salamander Active Directory.


Office 365 doesn’t automatically provision a user’s OneDrive when they are created, instead they are created on the fly when a user first tries to access it. Salamander Active Directory can now provision them in advance so they are ready and waiting for your users.

Not only does this mean your users can use OneDrive immediately without waiting for the site to be created, it is also particularly useful for applications where require OneDrive to already exist before use such as the iPad app. If migrating from another type of repository, it will also allow you to migrate content into OneDrives without waiting for users to access them.


I am Managing Director of SalamanderSoft Limited a company devoted to improving IT in education. I am also the project co-ordinator for the open source projects SharePoint Learning Kit and Microsoft Learning Gateway.
