    I am studying for the AD Design exam 70-297 and I have a couple
    practice exams here that I think are way off on a couple of thier
    questions and I wanted to ask here to verify that. You will not have
    the scenario but I think its pretty obvious without it.
    First one -

    They want you to design a strategy for migrating an internal network,
    in the scenario the internal and external networks are isolated
    (separate forests) and the current internal is a win2000 domain that
    was hashed together so needs to be completely redone. Thier steps are:

    1)Create pristine forest
    2)Establish an external trust
    3)change the domain functional Level
    4)Migrate Computer accounts
    5)Migrate user accounts

    First create an external forest trust you must raise the
    domain functional level and then raise the forest functional level both

    to 2003 correct? So my thinking it would be errant to say that you can

    create the external trust before changing the functional level since
    2003 installs at a default of 2000-mixed. Is that correct?

    Also Everywhere else I have read that you migrate users first, and then

    computers and other objects, here they are saying computers first then
    users? Is this wrong also?


    Question says you are designing the configuration of the external DNS
    server to meet the business and technical requirements. The
    requirements are that the external can not resolve anything on the
    internal network. Internal must be able to resolve internal and
    external. Also states that the name resolution of internet based
    resources should be done in such a way to as to not generate excessive
    and unneccesary traffic, which basically says disable recursion and use

    a forwarder to ISP's DNS because if you use the default root hints it
    will generate more traffic than forwarding.

    The possible answers are
    A) Configure a root zone on the external DNS server
    B) configure a stub zone for .com on the external dns server
    C) configure the external dns server to use default root hints
    D)configure the external DNS server to use the ISP's DNS server as a

    Obviously I answered D, however it is saying the correct answer is to
    configure a root zone and gives no explaination. A root zone for a 2
    forest 2 domain network would be excessive in itself and overcomplicate

    administration, you are only supposed to use a root zone in situations
    where the networks are complicated with many zones and a deep tree
    which is not the case in this one. Am I correct in saying that D
    should be the correct answer?


    Third and last question

    It states you need to identify the types of inbound traffic to be
    allowed through the perimeter firewall. In the scenario there is a
    perimeter firewall that is connected to the internet and the external
    network, on the external network is the external forest which contains
    web, vpn, dns servers etc, there is then an internal firewall that is
    connected to the external network and the internal network. The VPN
    server has a direct connection to the internal network, bypassing the
    firewall. You are supposed to specify which services should be allowed

    while maintaining the security fo the network.

    The options are
    VPN, DNS, LDAP, HTTP, HTTPS, Traffic from network address of

    They are saying you should allow - VPN, LDAP, HTTP and HTTPS

    I disagree that LDAP should be allowed in from the internet because
    that would not maintain security at all! I also argue that DNS should
    be allowed in otherwise nothing will be able to be resolved from the
    internet on the external network.


    Thanks very much for your comments and thoughts, I hate these practice
    exams that are poorly edited and contain errors. For refernece I am
    using the exams from version 9.22.06.

    Holy Jesus F'kin Christ.... So much for turning to people for insight.
    For one I didnt know these were "cheat" materials any more than
    Trancender or anything else is. I have been studying for this exam for
    3 weeks now using this and many other things including the courseware,
    Exam Cram books, Transcender and this so back it down gee.

    And if this is some kind of "dump" or whatever you are talking about if
    you actually read what I wrote you would see I am trying to understand
    concepts and figure things out and explaining exactly why I think the
    answer is what I say it should be. This is to show that I am not a
    moron and am actually thinking about what I am doing. So why dont you
    give it a rest and if you are not going to offer some sort of
    assistance or insight go find something else useless to do at your
    useless job.

    Much regards to any of you who have actually said anything of value.

    The thing that was said to you of value was that you are using cheating
    material to study with. What you do with that new-found knowledge is
    anyone's guess. Personally, I think you owe some people a big "thank you"
    for helping you to potentially avoid getting any and all certifications you
    have, or may be getting, revoked.

    Next time, it might pay to lurk a bit before you jump into the pool stark
