Exam Prep Questions

Question 1

You're planning the Active Directory design for FKP International. One of the requirements is that all members of the Finance department have a more stringent password policy than users in all other departments. What should you do?

  1. Configure an OU for the Finance department. Configure a stringent password policy and apply it to the OU.

  2. Configure a Finance domain and configure a domain-wide password policy.

  3. Configure a new forest for the Finance department. Configure a domain-wide password policy.

  4. Create a new universal group called finance. Configure a stringent password policy and apply it to the finance group.

Answer B is correct. Password policies are configured at the domain level. There can be only one password policy per domain. To apply a different password policy for the Finance department, two domains must be configured. Answer A is incorrect because password policies are not configured at the OU level. Answer C is incorrect because creating a new forest is unnecessary. Answer D is incorrect because a password policy cannot be specifically applied to a group.

Question 2

Which of the following administrative models organizes the Active Directory hierarchy around the different business units or departments?

  1. Geographical

  2. Functional

  3. Organizational

  4. Hybrids

Answer C is correct. An organizational model organizes the Active Directory hierarchy around the various business units or departments within a company. Answer A is incorrect because the model organizes Active Directory components around the various geographical locations. Answer B is incorrect because this model organizes the Active Directory hierarchy around the various job roles defined within a business. Answer D is incorrect because this model uses a combination of the other models.

Question 3

FKP International has recently bought out another company. The new company already has its own network infrastructure. While assessing the requirements of both companies, you determine that each company will require separate partitions. What should you do?

  1. Configure two forests

  2. Establish the new company as a new domain tree within the FKP International forest

  3. Configure a child domain under the FKP International forest root domain for the new company

  4. Configure an OU for the new company

Answer A is correct. Partitions are applied at the forest level. Therefore, if a company requires unique schema policies, multiple forests are required. Answers B, C, and D are incorrect because partitions are configured only at the forest root level.

Question 4

You are designing the Active Directory infrastructure for DKP International. DKP International was recently bought by FKP International. You're trying to determine how the new company will fit within the FKP International Active Directory hierarchy. During your assessment, you determine that DKP International already has an Internet presence that needs to be maintained. The organization also wants to use this namespace internally. What should you do?

  1. Configure two separate forests, one for each company

  2. Configure DKP International as a new tree within the forest

  3. Configure a child domain under the forest root for DKP International

  4. Configure an OU for DKP International

Answer B is correct. By configuring a new tree within an existing forest, DKP International can maintain its Internet presence while still being part of the FKP International Active Directory infrastructure. Answer A is incorrect because creating two separate forests is unnecessary. Answer C and D are incorrect because these solutions would not allow the new company to maintain its current DNS name.

Question 5

You're planning the WINS design for FKP International. Approximately 5,000 clients are on the network. The network is also routed. How many WINS servers are required?

  1. 1

  2. 2

  3. 3

  4. 4

Answer A is correct. There is no requirement for the number of WINS server that must be implemented. Because WINS is required for name resolution, one server must be used, although two WINS servers would be recommended for fault tolerance. Therefore, answers B, C, and D are incorrect.

Question 6

FKP International consists of a routed network. The company wants the new network infrastructure to include DHCP to automate the assignment of IP addresses to workstations. All routers do not support DHCP broadcasts. Which of the following would meet this requirement?

  1. Install a single DHCP server to be used by all workstations

  2. Install a single DHCP server and place a DHCP relay agent on each subnet without a DHCP server

  3. Place a DHCP server on each subnet

  4. Install the DHCP relay agent

Answers B and C are correct. Because the network is routed, you have two options. First, a DHCP server can be placed on each subnet or you can place a DHCP server on one subnet and enable the DHCP relay agent on the remaining subnets. Therefore, answers A and D are incorrect. A single DHCP server will not work because the routers do not support DHCP broadcasts. A DHCP server is required and therefore implementing only a relay agent is incorrect.

Question 7

FKP International has offices throughout North America. The corporate headquarters is located in Chicago. The NYC and Boston locations are connected to the head office via T1 connections. The office in San Francisco is connected to the head office via a 56kbps frame relay connection that is already heavily utilized. How many sites are required?

  1. 1

  2. 2

  3. 3

  4. 4

Answer B is correct. Because the WAN connection between San Francisco and the head office is slow and already heavily utilized, at least two separate sites should be required. Answer A is incorrect because replication will not occur correctly. Answers C and D are incorrect because only the minimum number of sites that are required should be created.

Question 8

FKP International has offices throughout North America. The corporate headquarters is located in Chicago. The NYC and Boston locations are connected to the head office via T1 connections. The office in San Francisco is connected to the head office via a 56kbps frame relay connection that is already heavily utilized. The NYC location currently has its own Internet presence which should be maintained. The Active Directory DNS name for NYC should be the same as its Internet domain name. How many domains will be required?

  1. One domain for the entire company

  2. Two domains: a forest root domain and a child domain for the NYC location

  3. Three domains: A root domain, and two geographical domains for San Francisco and NYC

  4. Five domains: A root domain, and four geographical domains

Answer C is correct. A forest root domain is required. Two geographical domains should be created: one for San Francisco because the link is not capable of sustaining Sysvol replication and one for the NYC location because it needs to maintain an Internet presence. Therefore answers A, B, and D are incorrect.

Question 9

When creating the Active Directory design for DKP international, four domains are required. Each domain will be configured as a child under the root domain. What must be done so that users in one domain can access resources in another domain within the forest?

  1. Configure two-way transitive trusts between all domains.

  2. Nothing. Two-way transitive trusts are automatically configured.

  3. Configure shortcut trusts between all domains in the forest.

  4. Configure two one-way trusts between each domain.

Answer B is correct. Within a forest, two-way transitive trusts are automatically configured between parent and child domains, thereby creating a trust path throughout the forest. Therefore, answers A and D are incorrect. Answer C is incorrect because shortcut trusts are required only if you want to shorten the trust path between two domains.

Question 10

FKP International is expanding and a new office is being opened in Europe. The number of users in the new location will be close to 3,000 within the next two years. The IT director for the company wants to know whether a new domain is required for the new location. Which of the following should be considered?

  1. Security requirements

  2. Number of users

  3. Number of local resources

  4. WAN connectivity

  5. Operating systems in use

Answers A and D are correct. When assessing the requirements for a new domain, you should consider the security requirements and WAN connectivity. Both of these could warrant the creation of additional domains. Therefore answers B, C, and E are incorrect.
