Video 3 of the tutorial series for G Suite Password Sync
In this third and final video of the series I will talk about troubleshooting topic for G Suite Password Sync.
As known troubleshooting is a critical aspect of anything we have! GSPS offers a lot of resources and information related to troubleshooting. There are a lot of log files that get generated by GSPS, and each log file has its own role and information to show you, the information in these log files are very critical to be able to know if G Suite Password Sync is working properly or not! Because GSPS is a service that runs in the background and you have no interaction with it, it is important that you know how to get the details of what is going on behind the scenes and be able to know what is the problem that is happening … Read the rest “[G Suite tutorials series] G Suite Password Sync (GSPS) 03 Troubleshooting”
So we were working on a project for a customer who has 6 Exchange servers, 3 CAS and 3 MBX. The customer have an Exchange Server 2013 organization and about 200 users.
Basically it all sounded easy and quick project, however their Exchange Server has other saying on this! After we configured the co-existence scenario on their Exchange Server, we had an issue where their local anti-spam application started to block incoming email messages from Google.
This is a normal behavior of course as those emails might be considered spoofed emails. So we added Google IP address ranges for outbound SMTP. Once we did that and some other settings on their Exchange Servers we were able to get their email traffic going between G Suite and on-premises Exchange Servers.
This was the easy part… However there was something else being cooked for us by the Exchange Server

General tutorial video for Google Cloud Directory Sync
I just published a 1 hour tutorial on Youtube that is talking about Google Cloud Directory Sync or GCDS. This tutorial is light an easy to follow. I used a scenario based approach to explain the steps and tasks that you need to do to configure it. The scenario is about syncing 8 user accounts to G Suite along with an OU structure form my AD to G Suite as well. The steps basically are the same for other object types such as groups. All you have to do is create the search rule and you are all set.
Here is the link for the video
Here also are the links that are mentioned in the video. You’ll find them also in the video description on Youtube:
I’ve got a case where the customer wanted to delete all of his users’ data in their mailboxes on the Exchange Server, that they got before 1-JAN-2018. He has an incident happened with some leaked critical email messages and he wanted to prevent it by taking this action!
The way to do this of course is pure PowerShell. So I first had to analyze the requirements then build an image in my brain for how the work is going to happen, then test it. And finally implement the needed changes.
Basically what I came to put together is, first I need to backup the data that I will delete. Then I need to delete the data.
To backup the data I need to export the mailboxes to a PST file. And the delete the data I have to use the Search-Mailbox cmdlet with -SearchQuery property.
This is just the back story for this incident and the Exchange Server environment setup. Skip to The issue section for the actual stuff
I recently had a project started to migrate an Exchange Server 2010 organisation to G Suite. The customer had 4 (very old) servers, 2 DAG and 2 CAS. While we were preparing for the data migration phase we hit a very hard brick wall. 3 hard disks on one of the servers decided it was time for them to smoke. Luckily they had 6 disks on that server, and they were using RAID5. Few days after replacing these drives, another different drive on the same server followed its fallen brothers!
