Practice Questions

Question 1

Which combination of NetWare 6 installation options requires the least user input and takes the least amount of time?

  1. Express and Upgrade

  2. Express and New Server

  3. Custom and Premigration

  4. Custom and Upgrade

Answer A is correct. An express installation uses the default configuration settings with little user input. An upgrade installation reads the existing installation; if there are no changes to the configuration, this combination is fastest. All other combinations are slower in comparison; therefore, answers B, C, and D are incorrect.

Question 2

Which of the following Deployment Manager items provides information on the actions required? (Select all the correct answers.)

  1. Step 1: Back Up Data

  2. Prepare a Novell Cluster for Upgrade

  3. Install NetWare 6

  4. Step 3: Prepare for NDS eDirectory 8.6

  5. Install NetWare 6 Products

  6. Use DSREPAIR to Check NDS and Schema Status

Answers A, C, and F are correct. The items listed in each category of Deployment Manager are identified by two icons: a document and a red arrow. Clicking an item that is accompanied by a red arrow launches the Installation Wizard. Prepare a Novell Cluster for Upgrade, Step 3: Prepare for NDS eDirectory 8.6, and Install NetWare 6 Products fall into this category. Therefore, answers B, D, and E are incorrect. Clicking items with the document icon displays information on performing the step in the installation process. Step 1: Back Up Data, Install NetWare 6, and Use DSREPAIR to Check NDS and Schema Status are documented steps.

Question 3

Kim's network has a server group that she is preparing for NetWare 6 installation. All servers should have the same NetWare 5 version and configuration, but during network preparation, only four of the six servers have the Update NDS check box checked. Two of the servers are listed but are dimmed (unavailable) and cannot be selected. Which of the following could explain why Kim cannot update NDS on all servers?

  1. Deployment Manager could not successfully log in to the two unavailable servers.

  2. The hardware configuration of the two servers is not compatible with NetWare 6.

  3. Deployment Manager can update only four servers each time it is run.

  4. The two unavailable servers' NDS configurations have already been updated.

Answer D is correct. Deployment Manager allows only updates of servers that are not yet ready for eDirectory 8.6. Servers that do not have to be updated are dimmed in Deployment Manager. Although you must have access to the servers to update NDS, Deployment Manager would generate an error if it were unable to log in—it would not represent the servers as unavailable; therefore, answer A is incorrect. Hardware configuration is not a consideration during this phase of the installation; therefore, answer B is incorrect. There is no limit to the number of servers Deployment Manager can update; therefore, answer C is incorrect.

Question 4

Which of the following methods can be used to begin the NetWare 6 installation? (Select all the correct answers.)

  1. Boot from an MS-DOS disk that loads the CD-ROM drivers, switch to the CD-ROM drive, and run INSTALL.BAT.

  2. Boot from the NetWare 6 License/Cryptography disk with the CD-ROM drivers loaded, switch to the CD-ROM driver, and run INSTALL.BAT.

  3. Open a command prompt window, switch to the CD-ROM drive, and run INSTALL.BAT.

  4. Boot from the NetWare 6 CD-ROM.

  5. Take down the exiting server, switch to the CD-ROM drive, and run INSTALL.BAT.

Answers A, B, and D are correct. The installation program cannot run in a command prompt window on a system with Windows or Linux installed. Also, after the server is installed, the boot process does not load the CD-ROM drivers to limit the amount of memory used. Therefore, answers C and E are incorrect.

Question 5

Bob, a network administrator from the satellite office in Omaha, has just returned from a NetWare 6 Administration class and has decided to upgrade one of the servers. Although you are the NetWare expert, Bob doesn't contact you about the upgrade until he runs into trouble. In the Update NDS screen, Bob selected Include Subordinate Containers and selected the top container in the NDS tree. However, when he attempts to update the NDS configuration on servers other than those in Omaha, he gets an error message and is unable to continue. Which of the following could be the reason the NDS update is failing?

  1. Bob has Supervisor access to his container but is only able to read the NDS tree at the [Root] level.

  2. Bob's IP configuration does not allow access to other networks.

  3. Expecting that Bob would attempt something like this, you changed the password for the [Root] administrator.

  4. The servers in other containers have already been updated and are ready for NetWare 6.

Answer A is correct. The user performing the NDS update must have Supervisor access to NDS [Root] as well as to the server's container. Although an IP configuration problem could cause problems during an installation, the inability to update other servers is a permissions problem; therefore, answer B is incorrect. Because Bob is attempting the installation as himself, the administrator password has no bearing on the upgrade, so answer C is incorrect. An error would not be generated if the other servers had already been upgraded, so answer D is incorrect.

Question 6

Carl is responsible for a network that supports a wide variety of client computers. He has just installed a new NetWare 6 server, using the Express Install option. Which of the following clients will be able to access files on the new NetWare server, with no additional configuration on Carl's part? (Select all the correct answers.)

  1. A Windows 98 system with the NetWare Client software installed

  2. A Linux system with no client software installed

  3. A Macintosh computer with no client software installed

  4. A Windows XP system with no client software installed

  5. A Windows 2000 Professional system with the NetWare Client installed

Answers A and E are correct. Of course, any system that has the NetWare Client installed will be able to access the new NetWare 6 server. By selecting Express Install, only NDPS, Novell Administration Server, and Advanced Audit Services are installed. NFAP is not installed, and it is required for Unix/Linux, Macintosh, and Windows clients to access the server without client software; therefore, answers B, C, and D are incorrect.

Question 7

You've been hired as a consultant to upgrade the network for a company that has grown rapidly through recent acquisitions. There is no consistency in the configuration of the current servers because they were originally used by different companies. You are planning to implement NetWare 6 and eDirectory 8.6 to provide network services. Which of the following existing file servers have hardware that can support NetWare 6? (Select all the correct answers.)

  1. Pentium IV 2.2GHz, 20GB HDD, 512MB RAM

  2. Pentium III 550MHz, 2GB HDD, 256MB RAM

  3. Pentium II 350MHZ, 10GB HDD, 512MB RAM

  4. AMD K6 350MHZ, 6GB HDD, 256MB RAM

  5. Pentium III 667MHZ, 10GB HDD, 256MB RAM

Answers A, C, and E are correct. The minimum requirements for NetWare 6 are a Pentium II/AMD K7, 200MB drive space for the DOS partition and 2GB for SYS:, and at least 256MB of memory. Answer B is incorrect because a 2GB hard drive is not large enough to support a 200MB partition and a 2GB SYS: volume. Answer D is incorrect because the processor in that case is only an AMD K6.

Question 8

Which of the following entries is not required at the outset of an upgrade?

  1. The location for the backup startup directory

  2. The server ID

  3. Video configuration

  4. Whether to load the server at reboot

Answer B is correct. An upgrade uses the existing server ID, so it is not required during the upgrade. All other settings can be set in the first parts of the upgrade; therefore, answers A, C, and D are incorrect.

Question 9

Which of the following NetWare products are installed by default during an Express Upgrade? (Select all the correct answers.)

  1. Native File Access

  2. iPrint

  3. Novell Advanced Audit Services

  4. SMS

Answers A and C are correct. The default Express Upgrade options include automatically installing Native File Access, Novell Distributed Print Services, and Novell Advanced Audit Services. iPrint and SMS can be added after the installation, but they are not included as part of the default options for express installation. Therefore, answers B and D are incorrect.

Question 10

Which of the following objects must be accessible when you install a NetWare 6 server into an existing NDS tree?

  1. The server with the Master replica

  2. The primary time synchronization server

  3. The server acting as the organizational CA

  4. The Deployment Manager server

Answer C is correct. The organizational CA must be running and accessible any time a server is added to the tree. Although the server with the Master replica is updated with the new eDirectory schema during the preparation process, it does not necessarily have to be available during the installation itself, so answer A is incorrect. When the server is added to the replication ring, it is synchronized with the other servers, but access to a time server is not critical to the installation process, so answer B is incorrect. There is no Deployment Manager server, so answer D is incorrect.
