I am planning Citrix HSD (Windows 2016 Server Desktop and Non-Persistent) user data move to One Drive for Business from user profile (User Profile will come from Shared storage).

You are wanting to move data (I am assuming, you mean Documents and Pictures) into OneDrive, yes?

Why don't you use OneDrive Known Folder Move? It silently migrates the contents of Documents, Pictures and Desktop into your OneDrive folder.

The post you have linked is a couple of years old and complicated. You can easily use the OneDrive Sync Client on Server 2016 now - the only part you miss is Files On Demand and Storage Sense.

FSLogix will cache the "local" files out to the user profile for you and avoid having to provision extra local storage for the cache.

Thank you, James.
You explained very well.
Just for confirmation, Can I use "One Drive for Business with FSLogix in Citrix XenApp Server Desktop for user profile purpose?" to avoid SAN or NAS storage coast.
As per your article and above post, it is possible. But is this solution implemented in any Citrix non-persistent environment?
If yes, any issues observed?
