    dear mcsa-gurus,
    i have read this question / answer in a preparation guide. do you agree with
    the answer ??

    thanx alot

    You are the network administrator for northwind.com.
    On a windows Server 2003 computer named serverA, you use the backup program
    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
    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
    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
    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.

    Although IRL, I wonder if the strategy used with allowing a service account
    password to expire would really be best pratice.

    As posted on MCSE comm.

    I'd say: A and C.
    D: by resetting a user pwd does not automatically unlock the account.

    Add info: Normally we use to push the use of local accounts with NO EXP
    setting set. But in some cases it's needed to access other resources on the
    net, then that'd require a net account with the same setting set. Remember to
    use the good pratice of least privilege.

  4. You have officially embarrassed yourself. Did you miss this line or
    Admit your ineptness immediately so that you might obtain forgiveness.

    I would, if it mentioned that it had passed XXX minutes after the backup was

    Then, I'd say I've just logged on to the server and don't tell me because
    the backup is called nightbackup it runs at XXX at night and that you work
    from 8am to 5pm. Com'on!!!

  6. You embarrassment continues.

    Haven't you taken a Microsoft exam? They don't spell it all out for you. A
    lot of times the question may be a little ambiguous. You can think too much
    and say well MAYBE it's 11:15pm when I'm doing all of this. When you start
    thinking like that, you are going to get in trouble (and get it wrong like
    you did). In this case though you have to ask yourself why did they tell me
    the account lockout duration? Why did they tell me that the backup runs at
    11pm and that it has been two days since it succeeded? They are pointing
    you to the correct solution of C and D.

    Back to special ed for ya...

    É amigo, tenho que concordar com vc, sua aposta foi a melhor, no entanto, te
    lanço uma outra aposta, que tal decifrar o que escrevi aqui?

    Outro desafio é ser mais humilde. Humildade é tudo nesta vida, coisa que vc
    não mostrou aqui nesta "ajuda" a outro amigo que primeiro postou esta

  8. Can you decipher this?

    Booooring. What, are you trying to impress me or something?
    Another challenge for you would be to come right out and admit you were
    wrong in English. You're only embarrassing yourself more by not admitting
    that you were incorrect.

    Hahahha, you are funny man!!!
    Sure I will admit, just like I did in the last message, but who said it's
    imperative that one should write in Eng here?? ehhe

    "Yes friend, I have to agree with you, your answer is the best one,
    therefore, here goes another bet, how about deciphering this???"

    "Another challenge is to be more humble. To be humble is a gift in one's
    life, that something you did not show here and did not try to help, instead,
    you were and is it's being a show off, pointing out people's errors and like
    saying "I'm the best f(*()*)&) the rest".

    So, basically, you're recommending him for membership in the MCNGP?

    That probably beats a "thank you" anyway.

    You didn't call anybody, but this is a newsgroup.

    Keep it up, though, you pretty funny for a foreigner.

    You have to have [email protected] your MCSE. You got called out for being wrong,
    plain and simple, yet you never backed down.

    So what exactly does the "fms" stand for?

    My "attack" consists of calling you out for what you are.
