By default, the Delete option of LDAP Sync is disabled to prevent accumulation of users no longer in your directory. This can temporarily be disabled by modifying the ldapsync.conf file located in: <EG HOME> \ Symantec \ VIP_Enterprise_Gateway \ LdapSync \ services \ ldapsync \ conf \ ldapsync.conf.

Open the file in notepad and change the line ldapsync.taskDelete = delete to ldapsync.taskDelete = 

Restart the LDAP Sync service.

Caution: Disabling this feature will prevent LDAP sync from deleting users during the sync process. It is not recommended as a permanent solution.
