The video on this article will show you how to configure Work Folders on a client machine, but as always no one is perfect and I forgot to mention some things to make this work. Plus, I was able to expand my storage on the virtual machine and was able to connect to the work folder in the video.
First of all, the Work Folders set up Wizard uses the domain specified in the email address and adds “workfolder” to the beginning. For example, if your email address is email@example.com, then the set up Wizard will try to connect to https://workfolder.bjtech.edu.
If you’re using Windows DNS, you can add the record on your DNS server by using the following PowerShell command:
Add-DnsServerResourceRecordCName –Name “workfolder” –HostNameAlias “workfolder.bjtech.edu” –ZoneName “bjtech.edu”
Just replace “bjtech.edu” with your company’s domain name.
At the end of the video, the machine didn’t have enough space to continue the connection between the client’s machine and Work Folders server. I expanded the hard drive space and continued the wizard and you guys will see this if everything goes well:
