Environment: SharePoint 2013, OneDrive for Business (ODB)

I sync my ODB with http://siteA/. Due to business reasons, I have migrated the site to http://siteB/ and I have performed necessary redirection using IIS URL REWRITE. So user trying to access siteA doc library will automatically be redirected siteB doc library. Everything works fine with the browser.

But after the migration, ODB stops working and fails to sync with the newly migrated site automatically.

Is there a way to achieve this automatically, Without reconfiguring ODB again ?

No, you need to reconfiguring ODB. OneDrive for Business will not change the path to the new migrated site automatically. It is by design.

  • Thanks, Joanna. Is there any official confirmation by MS? When I tracked down by Fiddler, ODB receives the 301 status code while accessing siteA/_vti_bin/webs.asmx and do nothing. Commented Jan 3, 2018 at 6:03
