    Once add a domain user to a local group in a Windows 2000, XP or
    2003 member server, what can the user do? Access local resource
    through the network? Login locally? Or both?

    All of the above would hold true IF and only IF the local security setting or
    at domain level allowed that particular group or user to log on locally.

    As Frank Nguyen once said in microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcse
    I always liked the phrase "If and only If".

    IIF(intDenominator <> 0, intNumerator / intDenominator, 0)

    Divide by zero error.

    Read the book first, then do the questions. You'll find out it works
    better that way.

    When I 1st got into programming I was confused by iff, because in
    math iff means If and Only If, but in programming it means something

    OK. See, here's the problem.

    iff and iif are different. wow.

    I'd say I was dislexic except this isn't even
    the same letters. Well, mostly the same.

    maybe that's why I neverver used iif, becasue every
    time I type in iff I get a complie error.

    stupid computer.

    iif rawks if you use it right. You just have to keep in mind that both
    results will be evaluated no matter what. I kind of wish they had a
    short-circuit version of iif just for that reason.

    I just today fixed a logic bug involving an iif line I had written, where I
    was working with one of two files that were -almost- identical, and forgot
    the part where iif evaluates both results, and consequently got a 380 error
    (invalid property) and I'm thinking "damb it! the code SAYS if it's this
    file use this field, otherwise the other! D'oh!"

    I like the IMP compare operator, but I had programmers
    misuse it so often that now we replace "If a IMP b then..."
    with "If a OR NOT b then...". What a shame.

    In .NET there is an ORELSE and a ANDTHEN which only evaluates
    the second argument if needed. Very nice.

    Adding a domain user to a local group gives the domain account the the same
    PERMISSIONS that a local user who was also a member of that group has.
    Permissions control access to resources, shares, and some groups are granted
    specific rights byb default. It does NOT allow the domain user to log on
    locally to the workstation. You would need to create a local account for
    that. On the other hand, if the local group happens to be "administrators"
    (as it usually is), they would have the rights and permissions to create a
    local account for themselves, then they could log on locally.

    I think you meant "ANDALSO". As far as I know, "ANDTHEN" is not an
    operator in VB.NET.

    Yeah, well, that's why we have compilers, to catch all my mistakes.

    Which brings up a cert related point. On language tests they
    inevitably ask syntax questions. Well, I don't need to memorize
    syntax - at least not to the point where I need to look at a piece
    of code and tell if its syntactically correct, that's the compilers
    job. Except for the rare typeo, I type syntactically correct code,
    but if someone brings me some code they are having trouble with,
    I ask - does it compile? If so we proceed from there.

    Logic, not syntax - that's what should be tested.

    Thus spake kpg :
    I completely agree here. But in my experience of MS Certifications,
    there are some questions that test your knowledge of syntax, but above
    all, the questions seem to be concerned about two things : Security and

    Since there are any no. of ways to achieve a particular end, the
    questions usually present a scenario which tells you what is the
    highest priority, Security or Performance. Then you can logically
    select the correct choice accordingly. This is why the exams require
    in-depth knowledge of the workings of the framework, since any
    programmer can probably do the needful, but doing it in the most
    efficient way, takes knowledge and experience.

    Of course, I'm only talking of the MCSD track exams here, but I think
    those factors would be pretty highly rated even on the Networking

    I figure, that's because it mirrors Microsoft's own policy after the
    lessons they've learned.

    Just my 2p.

    Valid points.

    So what you're saying is, I can make a lot of money
    if I write a Security and Performance checker for .NET?

    Remember lint for C? Of course you don't. Nobodys that
