    You want to ensure that only the GPOs set at the OU level affect the Group Policy settings for objects within the OU. Which option can they use to do this?

    • A.

      Block all

    • B.

      Block policy inheritence option

    • C.

      Block work

      Unblock GPO

    Correct Answer
    B. Block policy inheritence option
    Explanation
    The "block policy inheritance option" can be used to ensure that only the GPOs set at the OU level affect the Group Policy settings for objects within the OU. This option allows administrators to prevent any GPOs from higher-level OUs from being applied to the objects within the specific OU. By blocking policy inheritance, the administrators can have more control over the Group Policy settings and ensure that only the desired GPOs are applied to the objects within the OU.

With this feature, the company can have more flexibility in setting password requirements based on user roles or security needs. This is beneficial as it allows for more granular control over password policies and enhances security measures.

    Which type of trust is automatically created between the domains in a domain tree?

    • A.

      Transitive 1 way trust

    • B.

      Non set

    • C.

      Transitive 2 way trust

    • D.

      Mutual trust

    Correct Answer
    C. Transitive 2 way trust
    Explanation
    In a domain tree, a transitive 2 way trust is automatically created between the domains. This means that trust is established between all domains within the domain tree, allowing users in one domain to access resources in another domain, and vice versa. The trust is transitive, meaning that if Domain A trusts Domain B, and Domain B trusts Domain C, then Domain A also trusts Domain C. Additionally, the trust is two-way, allowing authentication and access to flow in both directions between the domains.

    What type of domain controller can you install if you are worried about physical security?

    • A.

      Active Directory Domain

    • B.

      ACDC

    • C.

      Read Only DC

    • D.

      Secure DC

    Correct Answer
    C. Read Only DC
    Explanation
    A Read Only DC (RODC) is a type of domain controller that can be installed if physical security is a concern. RODCs are designed to be deployed in locations where there is a higher risk of physical security breaches, such as branch offices or remote locations. Unlike a traditional domain controller, an RODC does not store a full copy of the Active Directory database. Instead, it stores a read-only copy, which means that any changes made to the database must be replicated from a writeable domain controller. This helps to protect against unauthorized changes or data theft in case the RODC is compromised.

    You need to provide a solution for deploying Microsoft Office. How can this be done?

    • A.

      Use a GPO to deploy software

    • B.

      Download it

    • C.

      Use a pendrive

    • D.

      Use the cloud

    Correct Answer
    A. Use a GPO to deploy software
    Explanation
    Using a Group Policy Object (GPO) to deploy software is a common and efficient method for deploying Microsoft Office. GPO allows administrators to centrally manage and distribute software installations across multiple computers or users in an Active Directory domain. By configuring the GPO settings, the software can be automatically installed on the targeted computers without the need for manual intervention. This method ensures consistency and ease of deployment, making it a preferred choice for deploying Microsoft Office in an enterprise environment.

    • D.

      Google it

    Correct Answer
    C. Change the functional level to 2008 mode
    Explanation
    To create a Universal group, the functional level of the domain needs to be set to at least Windows Server 2008. By changing the functional level to 2008 mode, the option to create a Universal group will no longer be grayed out, allowing the creation of Universal groups.
