Dear Experts.

I apologize that I post a common "how to" question, but I have been looking without finding any good answers.

My company consider using Microsoft Onedrive business instead of a regular on-premised server.
If this shall be possible I need the ability to create and share folders within Onedrive with different priviligies for the different users.
We don't need regular server functions as printer sharing, dns and all that.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible and how to configure it?

It's not intended to be used as a file server, and if you try to use it such you will run into different limitations. ODFB is for *personal* storage, and while you can certainly share files and folders with others, you should consider using SharePoint libraries for any files and documents that will be accessed by a group of people.

Anyway, there's detailed writeup on the subject here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/akieft/2013/09/06/migrating-file-shares-to-onedrive-for-business/#pi47623=2
