    You are a network administrator for your company. The network consists of a single Active Directory domain. A user named Mary works in the information technology (IT) security department. Mary is a member of the ITSecurity global group. Mary reports that no one in the ITSecurity global group can access the security log from the console of a computer named Server1. You need to grant the ITSecurity global group the minimum rights necessary to view the security log on Server1. How should you modify the local security policy?

    • A.

      Assign the Generate security audits user right to the ITSecurity global group.

    • B.

      Assign the Manage auditing and security logs user right to the ITSecurity global group.

    • C.

      Assign the Allow logon through Terminal Services user right to the ITSecurity global group.

    • D.

      Assign the Act as part of the operating system user right to the ITSecurity global group.

    Correct Answer
    B. Assign the Manage auditing and security logs user right to the ITSecurity global group.
    Explanation
    To grant the ITSecurity global group the minimum rights necessary to view the security log on Server1, the local security policy should be modified to assign the "Manage auditing and security logs" user right to the ITSecurity global group. This user right allows members of the group to view and manage auditing and security logs on the server, which includes the security log. By assigning this user right, members of the ITSecurity global group will be able to access the security log from the console of Server1.

    You are the domain administrator for your company's Active Directory domain. All client computers run Windows 2000 Professional. You recently deployed 10 new servers that run Windows Server 2003. You placed the servers in a new organizational unit (OU) named W2K3Servers. Anne is another network administrator. You need to configure the appropriate permissions to allow Anne to manage the new servers by using Terminal Services from her client computer. You need to assign Anne only the permissions she needs to perform her job. What should you do?

    • A.

      Add Anne's user account to the local Power Users group on each server that runs Windows Server 2003.

    • B.

      Add Anne's user account to the Remote Desktop Users group on each server that runs Windows Server 2003.

    • C.

      Assign Anne's user account the Allow Read and the Allow Write permissions for the W2K3Servers OU.

    • D.

      Configure the Managed By property for the W2K3Servers OU to Anne's user account.

    Correct Answer
    B. Add Anne's user account to the Remote Desktop Users group on each server that runs Windows Server 2003.
    Explanation
    To allow Anne to manage the new servers using Terminal Services, you should add Anne's user account to the Remote Desktop Users group on each server that runs Windows Server 2003. This group specifically grants users the permission to connect to a server using Remote Desktop. By adding Anne to this group, she will have the necessary permissions to access and manage the servers remotely.

    You are a network administrator for your company. All servers run Windows Server 2003. You manage a server that functions as a file server. The data volume on the server is mirrored. Each physical disk is on a separate controller. One of the hard disks that contains the data volume fails. You discover that the failure was caused by a faulty SCSI controller. You replace the SCSI controller. You need to restore the data volume to its previous state. You need to achieve this goal by using the minimum amount of administrative effort. What should you do?

    • A.

      Run the diskpart active command to activate the failed volume.

    • B.

      Convert both disks to basic disks, and then restore the data.

    • C.

      Break the mirror, and then re create the mirror.

    • D.

      Select a disk in the mirror, and then reactivate the volume.

    Correct Answer
    D. Select a disk in the mirror, and then reactivate the volume.
    Explanation
    When a hard disk fails due to a faulty SCSI controller, the first step is to replace the controller. After replacing the SCSI controller, the next step is to reactivate the volume. In this scenario, since the data volume is mirrored and each physical disk is on a separate controller, selecting a disk in the mirror and then reactivating the volume will restore the data volume to its previous state with the minimum amount of administrative effort. This option does not require converting disks to basic disks or breaking and recreating the mirror.

    You are the network administrator for your company. The network consists of a single Active Directory domain. All network servers run Windows Server 2003. You install the Remote Administration tools on a server named Server1, selecting all default settings. In Internet Explorer, you type https://server1/admin You receive the following error message: "HTTP Error 404 File or directory not found." You need to ensure that you can use Internet Explorer to administer Server1. What should you do?

    • A.

      In Internet Explorer, type http://server1:8099.

    • B.

      In Internet Explorer, type http://server1.

    • C.

      Install the Remote Desktop Web Connection subcomponent of the World Wide Web services.

    • D.

      In Internet Explorer, type https://server1:8098.

    • E.

      In Internet Explorer, type https://server1.

    Correct Answer
    E. In Internet Explorer, type https://server1.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "In Internet Explorer, type https://server1." This is because the error message "HTTP Error 404 File or directory not found" suggests that the server is not configured to use HTTP, but rather HTTPS. Therefore, typing "https://server1" in the browser address bar will attempt to connect to the server using the secure HTTPS protocol, which should allow for administration of Server1.

    You are the network administrator for your company. The network consists of a single Active Directory domain. All network servers run Windows Server 2003, and all are members of the domain. All client computers run Windows XP Professional. Five Web servers host the content for the internal network. Each one runs IIS and has Remote Desktop connections enabled. Web developers are frequently required to update content on the Web servers. You need to ensure that the Web developers can use Remote Desktop Connection to transfer Web documents from their client computers to the five Web servers. What should you do?

    • A.

      Install the Terminal Server option on all five Web servers. Use Terminal Services Configuration Manager to modify the session directory setting.

    • B.

      Install the Terminal Server option on all five Web servers. Use Terminal Services Configuration Manager to create a new Microsoft RDP 5.2 connection.

    • C.

      On each Web developer's client computer, select the Disk Drives check box in the properties of Remote Desktop Connection.

    • D.

      On each Web developer's client computer, select the Allow users to connect remotely to this computer check box in the System Properties dialog box.

    Correct Answer
    C. On each Web developer's client computer, select the Disk Drives check box in the properties of Remote Desktop Connection.
    Explanation
    To allow the Web developers to transfer Web documents from their client computers to the five Web servers using Remote Desktop Connection, the Disk Drives check box should be selected in the properties of Remote Desktop Connection on each Web developer's client computer. This option enables the local disk drives on the client computer to be accessed from within the Remote Desktop session, allowing files to be transferred between the client computer and the Web servers.

    You are the network administrator for your company. All network servers run Windows Server 2003. A member server named Server1 is configured to run shadow copies without a storage limit. Server1 has the disk configuration shown in the following table. You need to create additional free space on DATA1. You also need to improve the performance of Server1 and ensure that it has sufficient space for shadow copies in the future. Which two actions should you perform? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)

    • A.

      Delete the shadow copies on DATA1.

    • B.

      Delete Backup.bkf on DATA3.

    • C.

      In the properties of DATA1, relocate the shadow copies to DATA2.

    • D.

      In the properties of DATA1, relocate the shadow copies to DATA3.

    • E.

      Delete DATA3 and extend the DATA1 partition to include the space on DATA3.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Delete the shadow copies on DATA1.
    D. In the properties of DATA1, relocate the shadow copies to DATA3.
    Explanation
    To create additional free space on DATA1, the shadow copies on DATA1 should be deleted. This will free up space on the disk. Additionally, to improve performance and ensure sufficient space for future shadow copies, the shadow copies should be relocated to DATA3. This will distribute the load across different disks and prevent one disk from becoming overloaded. Deleting Backup.bkf on DATA3 is not necessary for creating free space on DATA1 or improving performance. Deleting DATA3 and extending the DATA1 partition is not a recommended solution as it would result in data loss and may not improve performance or provide sufficient space for shadow copies.

    • D.

      Use Event Viewer to view the contents of the application log located on Client1.

    Correct Answer
    B. Use Notepad to view the contents of the backup report located on Client1.
  • 9. 

    You are the network administrator for your company. Your network consists of a single Active Directory domain. All network servers run Windows Server 2003. You successfully install a new server named Server9. Immediately afterward, you perform the first backup of the server. The date is January 25, 2003. Next, you add a user named Anne to the local Backup Operators group. You direct Anne to perform nightly backups of Server9. One week later, you try to review the backup logs for Server9. The Backup utility displays the information shown in the exhibit.You verify that Anne is performing nightly backups. You need to be able to review the backup logs for the previous week. What should you do?

    • A.

      Add your user account to the local Backup Operators group.

    • B.

      Direct Anne to use her user account to log on and open the Backup utility.

    • C.

      In the Backup utility, select the Verify data after the backup completes check box.

    • D.

      Open %windir%\system32\LogFiles. Create a new subfolder named BackupLogs.

    Correct Answer
    B. Direct Anne to use her user account to log on and open the Backup utility.
    Explanation
    Anne needs to use her user account to log on and open the Backup utility in order to review the backup logs for the previous week. This is because Anne is the one performing the nightly backups, so her user account would have the necessary permissions to access and view the backup logs. Adding the user account of the network administrator to the local Backup Operators group or selecting the Verify data after the backup completes check box in the Backup utility would not provide access to the backup logs for the previous week. Creating a new subfolder named BackupLogs in the %windir%\system32\LogFiles directory would not automatically provide access to the backup logs either.

    You are the network administrator for your company. All network servers run Windows Server 2003. The network includes a file server named File1. File1 contains a single disk for system files and two SCSI hard disks that comprise a 72 GB mirrored volume with 65 GB of read only data. Users connect to this data by using shortcuts on their desktops. File1 is scheduled for replacement. You have a scheduled maintenance window to complete this task. Before the maintenance window, you build a new server. You need to bring the new server online with current data and re establish redundancy as quickly as possible. You must also ensure that the desktop shortcuts will continue to function. What should you do?

    • A.

      Name the new server File2. Create a new mirrored volume by using two 72 GB disks. Connect File2 to the network and copy the data from File1. When copying is complete, shut down the old File1.

    • B.

      Name the new server File1. Move both disks from the old File1 to the new File1. Scan the disks for changes. Import the disks. Connect the new File1 to the network.

    • C.

      Name the new server File1. Break the mirror on the old File1. Move one of the disks from the old File1 to the new File1. Scan the disk for changes. Initialize the disk. Select the spare disk and create the mirror. Connect the new File1 to the network.

    • D.

      Name the new server File1. Remove one of the disks in the mirror from the old File1. Move the disk to the new File1. Scan the disk for changes. Import the disk. Shut down the old File1 and connect the new File1 to the network.

    Correct Answer
    B. Name the new server File1. Move both disks from the old File1 to the new File1. Scan the disks for changes. Import the disks. Connect the new File1 to the network.
    Explanation
    To bring the new server online with current data and re-establish redundancy as quickly as possible, the best approach is to name the new server File1 and move both disks from the old File1 to the new File1. This ensures that the new server has the same name as the old server, allowing the desktop shortcuts to continue functioning without any changes. By moving both disks, the mirrored volume with the read-only data is also transferred to the new server. Scanning the disks for changes and importing them ensures that all the data is properly recognized and accessible on the new server. Finally, connecting the new File1 to the network completes the process.

    You are the network administrator for your company. All network servers run Windows Server 2003. One of your servers contains a RAID 5 volume. Routine monitoring reveals a failed disk in the set. The server is running and users are connecting to shared folders on the RAID 5 volume. You shut down the server and replace the failed disk. Now you need to ensure that the RAID 5 volume is redundant. What should you do?

    • A.

      Initialize the new disk. Select the failed region and then select the Repair Volume option.

    • B.

      Import the foreign disk. Select the failed region and then select the Repair Volume option.

    • C.

      Initialize the new disk. Select the failed region and then select the Reactivate Disk option.

    • D.

      Import the foreign disk. Select the failed region and then select the Reactivate Disk option.

    Correct Answer
    A. Initialize the new disk. Select the failed region and then select the Repair Volume option.
    Explanation
    After replacing the failed disk in the RAID 5 volume, initializing the new disk is necessary to prepare it for use. By selecting the failed region and then choosing the Repair Volume option, the system will rebuild the RAID 5 volume using the new disk. This ensures that the RAID 5 volume is redundant, meaning that data is distributed across multiple disks and can be recovered in case of a disk failure.

    • D.

      A copy backup to disk everyday a normal backup to tape on Friday an incremental backup to tape on Sunday, Tuesday and, Thursday

    Correct Answer
    C. A copy backup to disk everyday a normal backup to tape on Friday a differential backup to tape on Sunday, Tuesday and, Thursday
    Explanation
    The correct backup jobs to create are a copy backup to disk everyday, a normal backup to tape on Friday, and a differential backup to tape on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. A copy backup copies all files and folders to disk without marking them as backed up. This ensures that a complete copy of all data is available on disk every day. A normal backup to tape on Friday backs up all files and folders to tape, creating a full backup. Finally, a differential backup to tape on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday backs up only the files and folders that have changed since the previous Friday's backup, minimizing the amount of data that needs to be backed up.

      Incremental

    Correct Answer
    D. Incremental
    Explanation
    On weekdays, it is required to back up only the files that have changed since the last backup and minimize the time required for the backup. The incremental backup strategy is the most suitable in this scenario. Incremental backup only backs up the files that have changed or been added since the last backup, resulting in a faster backup process. This strategy helps in reducing the backup time and storage space required for the backups.
