Questions Relating to Administering Windows 2000 Server

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Marco Gonzalez, Sep 14, 2004.

  1. 1) Jerry works in a small environment which will require
    only one Windows 2000 Server. The current platform is
    LINUX Red Hat 6.0. Jerry would like to perform this
    installation across the network. Jerry has configured a
    Samba share containing the \I386 directory files and
    installed the network client on the target computer. Jerry
    runs winnt /s and points it to the share. Setup returns an
    error "Failure of dependency service to start." What
    should Jerry do to resolve this situation?

    A) Jerry should replace the network adapter and/or the
    network cable and attempt installation again.

    B) Jerry should contact the Linux Administrator and
    request a restart of Samba.

    C) Jerry should recopy the \I386 directory and make sure
    all the files are there and not corrupted.

    D) Jerry should replace the hard drive as it probably

    E) Jerry should try again later if the network is down.

    2) Sarah has been attempting to install Windows 2000
    Server for two days. She consistently gets the following
    error, "Error loading operating system." She has run f
    disk multiple times using various partition
    configurations. In order to rule out hardware issues, she
    has swapped a known good UDMA-100 40 GB hard drive for her
    UDMA-100 33 GB hard drive. She has also swapped the UDMA-
    100 cable four times. Windows 2000 Server will not
    install. What may be causing the problem?

    A) Sarah must use PC 133, CAS-2 memory. The RAM and
    processor are obviously incompatible.

    B) Sarah must run winnt using the /noreboot switch. This
    will halt the reboot step in the installation process and
    allow him to troubleshoot the error using the Disk Manager
    snap-in from the Administrator menu.

    C) Sarah has checked the cables and hard drives. They seem
    to be good, so the jumpers or BIOS settings for the drive
    configuration are most likely incorrect.

    D) Sarah must run winnt using the /syspart: C switch. This
    will copy all the files to the hard drive, provide the
    correct settings for setup to proceed past the reboot

    E) Sarah must replace the UDMA-100 hard drive with a
    standard IDE drive. Windows 2000 Server does not support
    UDMA-100 at this time.

    3) Exactly how many processors does Windows 2000 Server

    A) 2, asymmetrically

    B) 4, symmetrically
    C) 2, symmetrically

    D) 4, asymmetrically

    E) 8, symmetrically or asymmetrically

    4) Sally is attempting to install Windows 2000 Server in a
    small legal firm. The computer, a Pentium II 333, 256 MB
    of RAM, 8x CD-ROM, and an 800 MB hard drive, has been a
    solid performer for the past 2 years and produced no
    errors. During the ScanDisk phase of setup Sally receives
    an error, "Setup has been aborted. Please remove any disks
    and press any key to restart." What should Sally do to
    resolve the situation?

    A) Sally should change out the CD-ROM. Windows 2000 Server
    requires a minimum 16x CD-ROM to perform an installation.

    B) Sally should check the RAM. She probably has a bad DIMM.

    C) Sally should upgrade her hard drive to 1GB minimum, 2
    GB if that is possible. Windows 2000 Server requires a
    minimum of 1 GB of hard drive space.

    D) Sally should have specified the correct path to the
    \I386 directory.

    E) Sally should partition the hard drive, copy the \I386
    directory, and attempt the install from the hard drive.

    5) Andrew wants to install Windows 2000 Server on a
    Pentium III 933 with 256 MB of RAM, and a 40 GB hard
    drive. However, he does not want to sit while setup runs,
    as he has other work which also needs to be completed.
    Andrew loads the setup disk in the CD-ROM, drive D,
    partitions the hard drive using a small primary DOS
    partition, and copies the file Andrew.txt there. He
    changes to drive D:\ and invokes the command \I386\winnt32
    \ /s:d:\I386 /unattend:c:\Andrew.txt. What should happen
    when Andrew returns in about an hour?

    A) He will need to continue with the GUI stage of

    7) John has made the decision to upgrade his facility to
    Windows 2000 Server. His current Server is running Windows
    3.51 with Citrix MetaFrame. He assumes the hardware
    configuration exceed the minimum requirements. John
    successfully upgrades the server to Windows 2000. However,
    when he reboots, he notices that his settings are not
    correct and Citrix MetaFrame has disappeared. What should
    John do to recover this?

    A) John should uninstall Windows 2000. This will reinstate
    his original settings.

    B) John will need to reinstall Citrix MetaFrame on his
    server. Windows 2000 Server does not support a clean
    upgrade. He disregarded the warning message during setup.

    C) John will need to map a share to the directory that
    contains Citrix MetaFrame. All his settings were saved in
    a .tmp file.

    D) John should restore from backup. This will restore his
    original network settings as well as map a directory to
    Citrix MetaFrame.

    E) John should rename the \I386 directory to \Citrix.

    B) Windows 2000 Server incorporates a new technology
    called File Replication Service, which is fault tolerant
    and is easier to administer than its predecessor.

    C) Windows 2000 File Management Service. In this, all
    passwords and profiles are stored, an image is created,
    and replicated every 15 minutes automatically each time a
    new account is created.

    D) Windows 2000 Server handles replication through Active
    Directory Services. Replication occurs every 3 hours and
    automatically when a new account is created.

    E) Windows 2000 Server continues to use Directory
    Replication Services. Replication occurs every 15 minutes
    by default, and automatically when a new server is
    installed on the network.

    13) What is required to secure files and folders which
    have been configured for Web Services?

    A) IIS must be running on the server where the folders are
    to be shared. The access permissions must be set read,
    write, script source access, and directory browsing.
    Application permissions must be set none, scripts and

    B) SMS 2.0 Server must be installed and running. Create a
    share and name it Browsing Files. Point Web Services must

    share folder under the IIS directory.

    D) There is no way to secure these files.

    E) The files must be created under the Administrator

    14) Regina has a copy of Windows 2000 Server on a Jaz 1.0
    GB drive. She runs winnt from the \I386 directory. Setup
    reaches 84% and fails. Assuming she has exceeded the
    hardware requirements, and all of the hardware is known to
    be good. What can she do to recover from this failure?

    A) Regina should rerun the installation with the /noreboot
    switch to ensure Windows 2000 Server does not attempt
    another reboot.

    B) Nothing. Setup can only run from a CD-ROM, the hard
    drive, or a network share.

    C) Regina should run ScanDisk to determine whether the
    files are corrupted.

    D) Regina should check the connection between the Jaz
    drive and the computer to confirm the connection was not

    E) Regina should rerun the installation using the /ox
    switch. This invokes setup from across the network.

    15) Joan wants to see what the current compression rate is
    on the \I386 file on her Windows 2000 Server. Which

    the \I386 file. The compression will be displayed at the
    bottom of the pop-up window.

    C) This cannot be done.

    D) Joan should run Disk Manager, locate the file, right-
    click on the \I386 directory, and select Properties.

    E) Joan should run the command "diffile" from the command

    16) Mark has installed Windows 2000 Server in his office
    of 7 employees. Since there are so few employees, Mark has
    elected not to use DHCP. Mark does want to implement a
    Virtual Private Network. How can he accomplish this
    without configuring the DHCP Server?

    A) Mark must use DHCP to accomplish this. There is simply
    no way around it.

    B) Mark must click on Start, then Control Panel, then
    Network and Dial-up Connections. He must then Locate the
    connection he wants to share, right-click on it and select

    the box beside "Share this Connection".

    C) Mark must use a layer 3 switch and configure the
    Virtual Private Network from there.

    D) Mark must first install another network card. Then,
    Mark must click on Start, then Control Panel, then Network
    and Dial-up Connections. Locate the connection he wants to
    share, right-click on it and select Properties. Under the
    Shared Access tab, he needs to check the box beside "Share
    this Connection." Mark may then plug the second network
    card into a hub or switch and then add other computers. He
    must then reboot each computer and configure Internet

    Server. Assuming DHCP is installed, which tool should he
    use to determine this information?

    A) Gerald should go into the Accounts, select a user,
    right-click, and click on the Properties tab. This is the
    best and most efficient way to determine the average load
    on the Server.

    B) Gerald should use the new DHCP MMC console snap-in,
    Enhanced Monitoring Service. This will not only provide
    him with the needed information, it will also provide him
    with graphical data he can present at meetings.

    character #.

    C) Jennifer will need to create a CNAME called MyServer
    for SERVER#1. She will then be able to install Active

    D) Jennifer should run the compact command. She does not
    have enough free space to create the Active Directory.

    E) Jennifer can do nothing. She will need to format and
    start again because she failed to install all of the
    Administrative Tools.

    24) Ntds.dit, a core component of Active Directory, grows

    36) Unauthorized recreational Web Browsing has become a
    problem for Jerry and his small network. Jerry noticed
    that this use has resulted in an average utilization of
    80%. While Jerry wants to make sure that mail reaches his
    server, he needs to eliminate Web Browsing as it is not a
    critical tool for his end-users. What ports should he
    allow to continue the flow of e-mail?

    A) Ports 80 and 23

    on Properties, right-click on Local Area Connection, click
    on Properties, Sharing, and then highlight the box beside
    Share this connection?

    A) This function allows you to share the Internet
    connection with the Exchange Server. This allows you to
    get mail faster.

    B) You manage a small network that will never get any
    bigger than it already is. This method allows easy
    configuration of any end-user by offering a pre-configured
    VPN that is, in essence, plug and play.

    C) SMS 2.0 requires that the network connection be shared
    with it and all workstations. Without this function, SMS
    2.0 will not function.

    D) Exchange Mail Client will not function correctly
    without the ICS Service running. This is the only way to
    make the service run.

    E) This eliminates the need for a firewall. Windows 2000
    Server utilizes IPSec to protect itself from outside
    threats, and through ICS, creates a non-routable VPN to
    protect all the workstations on the domain.
