Sample Exam Question- 

You have been tasked with setting up Google Cloud Directory Sync (GCDS) as the Workspace Administrator to control Google Group memberships from a private LDAP server. Nevertheless, managing membership for many Google Groups requires manual intervention. You observe that these manually maintained groups are deleted when executing the GCDS sync. What should you do to stop the deletion of these groups?  

  1. Change the group deletion policy setting in the GCDS configuration manager to “don’t delete Google groups not found in LDAP.”  
  2. When the GCDS sync is finished, use the Directory API to verify and modify the group’s membership.  
  3. Verify that the base DNs for the user email address attribute and the group email address attribute is the same.  
  4. Set the Google domain users deletion/suspension policy to “remove only active Google domain users not detected in LDAP” in the user attribute settings of the GCDS configuration manager options.
