    You are administering a Windows Server 2003 computer configured as a print server. You want to perform maintenance on a physical printer connected to the print server. There are several documents in the print queue. You want to prevent the documents from being printed to the printer, but you don’t want users to have to resubmit the documents to the printer. What is the best approach to take?

    • A.

      Open the printer’s Properties dialog box, select the Sharing tab, and select the Do Not Share This Printer option.

    • B.

      Open the printer’s Properties dialog box, and, in the Ports tab, select a port that is not associated with a print device.

    • C.

      Open the print queue window, select the first document, and then select Pause from the Document window. Repeat the process for each document.

    • D.

      Open the print queue window, and select Pause Printing from the Printer menu.

    Correct Answer
    D. Open the print queue window, and select Pause Printing from the Printer menu.
    Explanation
    The best approach to prevent the documents from being printed to the printer without requiring users to resubmit the documents is to open the print queue window and select "Pause Printing" from the Printer menu. This will temporarily pause the printing process and hold the documents in the print queue until printing is resumed. This allows the maintenance on the physical printer to be performed without disrupting the printing process or requiring users to resend their documents.

    You are administering a Windows Server 2003 computer configured as a print server. Users in the Marketing group complain that they cannot print documents using a printer on the server. You view the permissions in the printer’s Properties dialog box. The Marketing group is allowed Manage Documents permission. Why can’t the users print to the printer?

    • A.

      The Everyone group must be granted the Manage Documents permission.

    • B.

      The Administrators group must be granted the Manage Printers permission.

    • C.

      The Marketing group must be granted the Print permission.

    • D.

      The Marketing group must be granted the Manage Printers permission.

    Correct Answer
    C. The Marketing group must be granted the Print permission.
    Explanation
    The Marketing group must be granted the Print permission because even though they have the Manage Documents permission, they still need the Print permission in order to actually print documents using the printer on the server. The Manage Documents permission only allows them to manage and manipulate the documents once they are printed, but it does not grant them the ability to initiate the printing process itself.

    The marketing department is complaining about print quality on its shared printer, which is called MarketingPrinter. When users print from their Windows XP desktops using Microsoft Office applications, documents print perfectly. But when they print from Adobe applications, the documents do not always reflect the desired results. The sales department, which has an identical shared printer called Sales-Printer and uses a mix of Windows 2000 and Windows XP workstations and Office, does not report any problems. As you consider the situation, it occurs to you that some applications produce different results depending on whether the printer is using PostScript or a non-PostScript driver. Where do you deploy the properly functioning printer driver so that the computers needing it are updated?

    • A.

      The Server Properties dialog box of the print server

    • B.

      The printer Properties dialog box of MarketingPrinter

    • C.

      The printer Properties dialog box of SalesPrinter

    • D.

      The printer Properties dialog box for the logical printers installed on the desktops of each marketing department user

    Correct Answer
    B. The printer Properties dialog box of MarketingPrinter
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the printer Properties dialog box of MarketingPrinter.

    You are the systems administrator for a law firm with a group of 20 legal assistants who provide administrative support to the attorneys. All of the assistants use a single, shared, high-speed laser printer installed on a Windows Server 2003 system. They must print large documents on a regular basis. Although the laser printer is fast, it is kept running almost constantly, printing documents. At times, the assistants have to wait 20 minutes or more after submitting a print job for their documents to reach the top of the queue. None of the assistants wants to scroll through a list of available printers to check which one has the fewest jobs before submitting a document. Which of the following options should you consider to minimize the amount of time that printers take to finish printing documents for all the assistants?

    • A.

      Install a second laser printer of the same make and model and create a printer pool.

    • B.

      Set different printer priorities for each legal assistant based on a list generated by the head of the group. The most important assistant should be set a priority of 1, and the least important a priority of 99.

    • C.

      Set different printer priorities for each legal assistant based on a list generated by the head of the group. The most important assistant should be set a priority of 99, and the least important a priority of 1.

    • D.

      Purchase three more identical laser printers, and install them with their own individual printer shares on the print server.

    You’re implementing software RAID on your Windows Server 2003 computer. You want to provide fault tolerance to the system and boot partitions. Which version of RAID should you use?

    • A.

      RAID-0.

    • B.

      RAID-1.

    • C.

      RAID-5.

    • D.

      You cannot use software RAID to protect a boot partition.

    Correct Answer
    B. RAID-1.
    Explanation
    RAID-1 is the correct answer because it provides fault tolerance by mirroring data across multiple disks. In this case, implementing RAID-1 would allow the system and boot partitions to be duplicated on separate disks, ensuring that if one disk fails, the system can still boot and operate normally from the mirrored disk. RAID-0 does not provide fault tolerance as it uses striping without redundancy, RAID-5 requires at least three disks and does not specifically protect boot partitions, and the statement "You cannot use software RAID to protect a boot partition" is incorrect as RAID-1 can be used for this purpose.

    You’re setting up a Windows Server 2003 computer, and you want to protect the data on the hard disk. You want to implement a solution that provides the fastest disk I/O possible and supports the hot swapping of hard disks. Which RAID solution should you use?

    • A.

      RAID-0

    • B.

      RAID-1

    • C.

      RAID-5

    • D.

      Hardware RAID

    Correct Answer
    D. Hardware RAID
    Explanation
    The hardware RAID solution is the best choice in this scenario because it provides the fastest disk I/O and supports the hot swapping of hard disks. Hardware RAID uses a dedicated RAID controller, which offloads the processing from the server's CPU and improves performance. It also allows for easy replacement of failed drives without shutting down the server, ensuring continuous data availability. RAID-0, RAID-1, and RAID-5 are software-based RAID solutions that do not offer the same level of performance and hot swapping capabilities as hardware RAID.

    You’re setting up RAID-5 on your Windows Server 2003 computer. You plan to use five hard disks,  which are each 20 GB in size.  What percentage of redundancy can you anticipate with this configuration?

    • A.

      20

    • B.

      25

    • C.

      33

    • D.

      50

    Correct Answer
    A. 20
    Explanation
    With RAID-5, one disk is used for parity information. In this case, since there are five disks, one of them will be used for parity. Therefore, the redundancy percentage is equal to the size of one disk divided by the total size of all disks, which is 20/100 = 20%.

    You’re setting up software RAID on your Windows Server 2003 computer to provide fault tolerance to the data stored on that system. The computer is used as a database server. The server performs many read operations but relatively few write operations. As a result, you want a fault-tolerant solution that provides excellent read performance. Which RAID solution should you use?

    • A.

      RAID-0

    • B.

      RAID-1

    • C.

      RAID-5

    Correct Answer
    C. RAID-5
    Explanation
    RAID-5 is the most suitable solution in this scenario. RAID-5 provides fault tolerance by distributing parity data across multiple drives, allowing for the reconstruction of data in case of a single drive failure. It also offers excellent read performance as it allows multiple drives to read data simultaneously, increasing the overall read speed. This is beneficial for a database server that performs many read operations. RAID-0 does not provide fault tolerance, and RAID-1 may not offer as good read performance as RAID-5.

    B. One or two of the disks are configured with the basic storage type.

    The most likely reason for the RAID-5 option not being available is that one or two of the disks are configured with the basic storage type. RAID-5 requires all disks to be configured with the dynamic storage type in order to implement the RAID-5 volume. If any of the disks are configured with the basic storage type, the option to create a RAID-5 volume will not be available.
