Make OneDrive files and folders within Server 2016 Datacenter OS be available only within cloud and not on local computer

An Office 365 user I support has an issue where OneDrive for Business which is running within a Server 2016 Datacenter OS doesn’t have the options available within the Windows Explorer Status column to make folders and files contained within OneDrive available either on this device or in the cloud.
The screenshot shows that these options are available within his Windows 10 OS on the left but on the right where he is using a Server 2016 Datacenter OS this option isn’t available. The file and folder names have been removed from this picture.
Also within the Server 2016 Datacenter OS when we right-click on a folder or file we don’t have this option either.

What can be done to fix this issue so that the OneDrive for Business files & folders running within the Server 2016 Datacenter OS will have the option to make these files and folders available only within the cloud and not available on the local computer?
