Sync client / Files On-Demand support for Windows 10 virtual desktops (VDI)
In 2018 we will begin a 12 month deployment of Windows 10 + Office 365. 45,000 physical devices will be replaced and 15,000 devices will be turned into kiosks accessing virtual desktops. Would like to incorporate OneDrive into the personal data namespace, but you explicitly state there is no support for the sync client (and thus Files On-Demand) for virtual desktops (VDI), and that eliminates OneDrive usage for all since the user experience has to be identical across physical and virtual. If I can't do it for virtual then I can't do it for physical.
Request explicit statement of support for sync client with Files On-Demand on Windows 10 virtual ldesktops.
In late December we will make our final architectual decision on user data.

I work in Citrix and this would be a huge improvement if you made it possible.
Please provide support for OneDrive synchronization to VDI environments. Thanks.

Kevin, we are in a very similar scenario. We are looking at a combination of Files on Demand and the GPO to limit the download size (DiskSpaceCheckThresholdMB) . We need Microsoft to make this a supported configuration at least for VDI environment with persistent disks.
