Remove Secondary Admins from Onedrive

The script below can be used to remove secondary admins from or add secondary admins to, Onedrive for Business sites.

Ideally, you need to be either a global admin or SharePoint admin to run this, and you will need the SharePoint PowerShell module installed.

This will run for ALL Onedrive sites in your organisation.
