FastTrack Automation Studio puts your OneDrive on the map

Is OneDrive Driving You Nuttier Than Beorn’s Honey Nut Cake?

As master of your I.T. domain, just as you relax having thwarted the army of USB drive wielding hordes from Finance, all of a sudden, the Witch-king of Angmar sticks his head round your door with a request for Office 365 and One Drive For Business drive mapping. For everyone. Orcs included.

Being a forward thinking I.T. professional, you’ve embraced the cloud as the low cost and scaleable storage resource it is, and let’s face it, that extra server storage for the development Hobbits, that’s just not happening. However, before your pack the entire company off into the murky depths of Microsoft’s ‘Middle Earth’ in the cloud, there is a problem. Legacy apps. Legacy Data. Active Directory authentication. Printers. Laptops. And the stuff the boss doesn’t let you see, and told you it must in no circumstances leave the premises because he must be able to physically touch it.

The result is a one-way ticket to a place we call ‘Neither-Nor-Dor’ – the harsh and inhospitable land of cloud compromise. You still retain the benefits (and challenges) of keeping key assets on premise in order to run the business, however for cloud storage, users need to log in to MS O365 OneDrive For Business on their PCs. Worse still, some have SharePoint storage accounts they collaborate with, so these need to be set up too.

FastTrack Automation Studio: Taking The Sting Out Of Mapping Microsoft Cloud Storage

If the thought of organising all of this makes you yearn for Shelob to jump down and give you one of her silky cuddles, fear not, brave one! Automation Studio now equips you with a blue glowing ‘Sting’ of your own to slice your way right through the w’ork-load.

Introducing Automation Studio’s SharePoint and OneDrive For Business Active Directory GUI Mapping!

Welcome To OneDor!

Automation Studio’s functionality here is positively elven in both ingenuity and beauty:

Step 1: Go ahead and create a drive mapping in the Automation Studio Logon Script Wizard just like you would for any normal server drive mapping. Simply click on the ‘Add SharePoint’ or ‘Add OneDrive’ button the right.

Step 2a: For SharePoint – select the desired drive letter, SharePoint URL and the name of the drive you want to display in your users File Explorer.

Step2b: For OneDrive For Business, again simply set the drive letter, the tenant name, and the name of the drive.

Step 3: Set the condition(s) – so who gets the drive.

Step 4: That’s it – you’re done. Next time the user logs in, they’ll need to authenticate with MS Online just the once, and after that – they’ll have their One Drive well and truly – ‘On the map’.


Return Of The King (That’s you – to the peace and quiet of your favourite website)

Let’s be realistic here. Yes your stay in ‘NeitherNorDor’ may last longer than planned, but at least with FastTrack Automation Studio at your side, it will help restore more enough the illusion of normality, perhaps even tranquillity. Meaning you can get back to ‘real’ work.

"Use this as a replacement for VBScript and PowerShell"

"It's easy to include attractive GUI elements in FastTrack scripts, beyond the basic dialog boxes and text input that VBScript offers ... Another powerful feature is the ability to distribute scripts as Windows Installer (.msi) or standard .exe files. Although interesting in its own right, this ability results in a much more intriguing capability: to repackage -- or wrap -- software installers as .msi files without using snapshots. If you've ever created an .msi installer file from before-and-after system snapshots, for use with a software distribution system such as Group Policy or SCCM, then you know how hit-and-miss the results can be."

"Faster than the rest"

"We found the FastTrack syntax to be more transparent and easier to learn than Microsoft's PowerShell – the editor in particular provided good support in this regard. the Script Editor offers a large number of options from the command set through to simple output of graphical elements, which cannot be achieved at all with PowerShell or other solutions or only with a significantly greater level of effort."

"Anyone wanting to tackle the many hurdles in everyday admin and especially anyone for whom logon scripts and client automation is a priority will benefit from the variety of functions offered by FastTrack."
