70-292: can someone please verify / explain the answer to this question
 
dear mcse-gurus,
i have read this question / answer in a preparation guide. do you agree with
the answer ??

thanx alot
tim

You are the network administrator for northwind.com.
On a windows Server 2003 computer named serverA, you use the backup program
to
automatically back up eight servers. You use a schedule task named AutoBack.
The task
runs in the security context of a domain account named NightBackup.
The Default Domain Policy Group Policy object (GPO) is configured with the
following
account policies settings:

1. Minimum password length: 8 characters
2. Password expiration: 30 days
3. Enforce password history: 12 passwords remembered
4. Account lockout threshold: 3 invalid logon attempts
5. Account lockout duration: 30 minutes

The backup program runs successfully for four weeks. After four weeks, you
notice that
nightly backups no longer occur. A successful backup occurs when you log on
the
serverA with your own user account and perform a local backup. Your user
account is
member of the Domain Admins group.
You want the AutoBack scheduled task to perform unattended backups every
night at
11:00 P.M.

Which two actions should you perform in orderto resume the nightly backups
by using the
AutoBack scheduled task? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution.
Choose two.)
A. Unlock the NightBackup user account.
B. Enable the NightBackup user account.
C. One the properties sheet for the AutoBack. Job scheduled task, reset the
password.
D. Reset the password for the NightBackup user account.
E. Configure the local security policy on serverA to grant the service
account the Logon
locally right.
F. Configure the local security policy on serverA to grant the service
account the Logon as a
service right.


Answer: C, D
Explanation: The question states that the backup program ran successfully
for four weeks,
which is more or less 30 days. Because of the password expiration being 30
days, the
passwords listed in C and D has to be reset.

I would be more inclined to agree if the question had stated that someone
changed the NightBackup password upon expiration. Had they not, the account
would most likely be locked.

Yes, given the choices available C and D are the only way to resolve the
issue. In reality, the backup account should be a local account, not a
domain account, and should be set not to expire. Use a very long (30+
characters) password and monitor the event log for logons from the
service account that are not service type logons.

I'd say: A and C.

D: by resetting a user pwd does not automatically unlock the account.

No, the practice test is correct IMO. The program is logging in under
a user account. Unfortunately, services don't know how to reset a
password. A regular user who hadn't changed their password in time
will be forced to change their password before they see their desktop.

The account isn't locked out, and it isn't disabled, they just have to
change the password.

The real-life answer would be to set the service account so that the
password never expires. You can never afford to have a backup job not
execute.
