Sending some questions,
specially for you.
Good Luck to you all.
You need to evaluate whether the currently available
network bandwidth is adequate to run NewApp. Which
three actions should you perform? (Each correct answer
presents part of the solution. Choose three)
A. Use a debug version of NewApp to collect information
B. Use Performance Monitor to collect data about the
saturation of each WAN link.
C. Use Network Monitor to analyze the data that is
transmitted over the network for App1.
D. Install SNMP on all computers that are connected
to App1 to obtain information about App1.
E. Build a test environment for NewApp to analyze
how much bandwidth is required for NewApp.
Answer: B, C, E
Performance Monitor, which is replaced by System Monitor
in Windows Server 2003, allows us to obtain stats
on total bandwidth used. The System Monitor is designed
for real-time reporting of data to a console interface,
and can be reported in graph, histogram, or numeric
SNMP allows for the monitoring the status of network
A test environment would be ideal in this case to
prevent disruption of the active network.

You are designing a DNS strategy to meet the business
and technical requirements. Which two actions should
you perform? (Each correct answer presents part of
the solution. Choose two)
A. Create a dynamic reverse lookup zone for each subnet.
B. Create a dynamic forward lookup for each domain.
C. Install caching-only DNS servers in the branch
D. Enable the BIND secondaries option for each DNS
Answer: A, B
The scenario states: "UNIX instructors require
support of pointer (PTR) resource records for several
applications used from their home computers."
It also says: "The company anticipates more focus
on the online course offerings in the future."
A reverse lookup zone is a database which stores a
mapping of IP address to friendly DNS domain names.
In DNS Manager, reverse lookup zones are based on
the in-addr.arpa domain name and typically hold pointer
(PTR) resource records..
A forward lookup zone is a name-to-address database
that helps computers translate DNS names into IP addresses
and provides information about available resources.
C: Caching-only servers do not host any zones and
are not authoritative for any particular domain.
D: Windows DNS zone files can contain RRs that can
cause problems for BIND secondaries. These records
include those that use an underscore in the host or
domain name and the WINS and WINS-R records. On some
versions of BIND, notably BIND 8.0, the presence of
these records can cause the zone to fail to load.

You are designing the Group Policy settings to meet
the business and technical requirements. You are reviewing
a possible logical structure for the company as shown
in the diagram in the work area. The Domain Controllers
OU and the Seattle OU are created at the domain level.
The Instructor OU and Student OU are children of the
Seattle OU. The diagram does not cover all organizational
requirements. Based on this diagram, how should you
design the Group Policy settings?
To answer, drag the appropriate Group Policy object
(GPO) option or options to the correct location or
locations in the work area.
Account Lockout threshold and Password Requirements
are both Account Policies and must be placed at the
domain level. "The account policy must be defined
in the Default Domain Policy or in a new policy that
is linked to the root of the domain and given precedence
over the Default Domain Policy, which is enforced
by the domain controllers that make up the domain."
The case states: "Instructors will need the new
scheduling application to be installed both on their
office and home computers that are members of the
domain." This tells us that the scheduling program
must be assigned to "their" computers not
all computers that they use or login into. "Their"
computers would be members of the domain and would
be placed into "Instructor OU" within the
domain. Question 6 also verifies this.
You need to ensure that only authorized personnel
are able to modify student grades. Which desktop environment
or environments should you use? (Choose all that apply)
A. Windows XP Professional
B. Windows 2000 Professional
C. Windows 98 with Active Directory client installed
D. Windows NT Workstation 4.0 with the latest service
pack and Active Directory client installed
Answer: A, B
In order for authentication to occur from a centralized
point, you need to apply group policies. The desktop
environments that support these features are, Windows
XP Professional and Windows 2000 Professional.
C and D: These desktop environments do not support

You need to ensure that the sales representatives
are provided with adequate NetBIOS name resolution.
What should you do?
A. Install WINS on the PDC emulator.
B. Install WINS on servers in Atlanta and Seattle.
C. Enable WINS lookup on the DNS server in Atlanta.
D. Enable WINS on one domain controller in each office.
As the sales representatives are currently using Windows
98 computers, they need NetBIOS name resolution which
is provided for by WINS. In the scenario they also
say that there are sales representatives in all offices,
which means domain controllers in each office has
to be WINS enabled, because they control all activities
on the domain.

You are designing a strategy to install the new scheduling
application. Which two actions should you perform?
(Each correct answer presents part of the solution.
A. Assign the scheduling application package to the
B. Publish the scheduling application package to the
C. Ensure that the scheduling application can install
across slow WAN links.
D. Prevent the scheduling application from installing
across slow WAN links.
Answer: A, C
The scenario states: "Additionally, instructors
are not receiving updated teaching schedule information
on a timely basis. The issue should be addressed by
ensuring that our new scheduling program is installed
on all instructor computers, including the computers
that the instructors use when accessing our network
All instructor computers form part of the Instructor
OU, so by assigning the application to this OU ensures
that the package will be installed with minimum administrative
effort. The need for ensuring that the scheduling
application can install across slow WAN linksis due
to the network having connections with different speeds.
