  2. It will be necessary to modify the sharing settings of each site collection to remove the external user’s access.

Objective 2.1: Review

  1. Correct answer: A

    4. Incorrect: An invitation to access shared content sent to an external user from an Office 365 SharePoint site collection remains valid for 7 rather than 28 days.
  2. Correct answer: B

    1. Incorrect: This will block all sharing in all site collections in the tenancy.
    2. Correct: This will only allow sharing to be performed with authenticated users in all site collections.
    3. Incorrect: While this will accomplish the overall goal of requiring all external users to authenticate to access shared content, it will not do so with a minimum amount of administrative effort.
    4. Incorrect: This will block sharing of all content in each site collection.
  3. Correct answers: A and D

    1. Correct: You must enable the ability to use anonymous guest links at both the tenancy level and the site collection level to allow anonymous access to documents hosted within that site collection.
    2. Incorrect: Configuring this option at the site collection level would block users from sending anonymous links.
    3. Incorrect: Configuring this option at the tenancy level will block the option for allowing anonymous links at the site collection level.
    4. Correct: You must enable the ability to use anonymous guest links at both the tenancy level and the site collection level to allow anonymous access to documents hosted within that site collection.
  4. Correct answers: A and C

    1. Correct: To allow users to send anonymous links in other site collections, this option needs to be configured.
    2. Incorrect: This option will block anonymous links in other site collections.

Objective 2.2: Thought experiment

  1. Microsoft support can recover site collections up to 14 days after being removed from the Recycle Bin.
  2. You need to remove the site from the Recycle Bin, as site collection URLs must be unique.

Objective 2.2: Review

  1. Correct answer: C

    1. Incorrect: The amount of storage space allocated uses the formula 10 GB plus 500 MB per user. This would mean that 30 GB, rather than 10 GB, will be available.
    2. Incorrect: The amount of storage space allocated uses the formula 10 GB plus 500 MB per user. This would mean that 30 GB, rather than 20 GB, will be available.
    3. Correct: The amount of storage space allocated uses the formula 10 GB plus 500 MB per user. This would mean that 30 GB will be available.
    4. Incorrect: The amount of storage space allocated uses the formula 10 GB plus 500 MB per user. This would mean that 30 GB, rather than 40 GB, will be available.
  2. Correct answer: C

    1. Incorrect: The maximum amount of storage that can be allocated to an individual SharePoint Online site collection is 1 TB, not 100 GB.
    2. Incorrect: The maximum amount of storage that can be allocated to an individual SharePoint Online site collection is 1 TB, not 500 GB.
    3. Correct: The maximum amount of storage that can be allocated to an individual SharePoint Online site collection is 1 TB.
    4. Incorrect: The maximum amount of storage that can be allocated to an individual SharePoint Online site collection is 1 TB, not 5 TB.
  3. Correct answer: D

    1. Incorrect: You should configure the quota warning email threshold. Setting the quota to 48 GB will not notify you that 48 GB of a 50 GB quota has been consumed. It will simply limit the site collection storage to 48 GB.
    2. Incorrect: You should configure the quota warning email threshold. Setting the quota to 52 GB will not notify you that 48 GB of a 50 GB quota has been consumed. It will simply limit the site collection storage to 52 GB.
    3. Incorrect. Setting the email warning threshold to 48 percent will mean a notification will be sent when 24 GB of space is consumed, rather than 48 GB.
    4. Correct: You should set the quota alert email threshold to 96 percent. The quota is already set to 50 GB, so this will send an email when 48 GB has been consumed.
  4. Correct answer: D

    2. Incorrect: Storage Quota can be altered after site collection creation.

    2. Correct: Site collections remain in the Recycle Bin for 30 days.
    3. Incorrect: Site collections remain in the Recycle Bin for 30 days, not 60 days.
    4. Incorrect: While some older documentation might suggest that site collections remain in the Recycle Bin for 90 days, the figure listed in current documentation and in the actual SharePoint Online interface is 30 days.

    2. Correct: A resource quota allows you to restrict how much RAM and CPU resources a specific site collection can consume.
    3. Incorrect: Assigning a user as a site collection administrator will not ensure that a specific site collection does not consume all of the RAM and CPU resources available to the tenancy.
    4. Incorrect: While purchasing additional user licenses will increase the overall server resource quota, it will not stop a specific site collection from consuming all those resources.
