Answers to Exam Prep Questions

  1. Answer B is correct. Drag and drop is the default behavior in the ADUC in the RTM version (as well as in SP1 and R2). Answer A is incorrect because drag and drop has always been supported in the ADUC console under Windows Server 2003. Answer C is incorrect because the RTM version does not provide any confirmation message box for dragging and dropping objects within the ADUC console. Answer D is incorrect because there is no Microsoft-supported method for disabling drag and drop functionality under the RTM version. However, turning off the drag and drop feature is supported under SP1 and R2.

  2. Answers B, C, and E are correct. You can create a computer account when you join a computer to a domain from a Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2003 computer. You can prestage a computer account by using either the ADUC console or by using the dsadd computer command from a command prompt. Answer A is incorrect because logging on to a domain from a Windows 98 computer does not create a computer account in Active Directory. Answer D is incorrect because the dsget computer command displays properties of computers in the directory. Answer F is incorrect because you cannot join a Windows 95 computer to a domain, even with the Active Directory client software installed.

  3. Answers B and F are correct. MMC 3.0 is automatically installed when you upgrade to Windows Server 2003 R2 Edition. By adding the new subkey UseNewUI to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MMC, you turn on the improved features for MMC 3.0. Answer A is incorrect because MMC 3.0 is not automatically installed when you install SP1. Answer C is incorrect because you cannot enable MMC 3.0 features under MMC 2.0. Answer D is incorrect because adding the value UseNewUI to the KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MMC Windows Registry key does not enable the enhancements for MMC 3.0. Answer E is incorrect because you cannot enable the new features for MMC 3.0 from the Add or Remove Snap-in dialog box.

  4. Answers C and E are correct. The file named dsa.msc is the MMC snap-in for the Active Directory Users and Computers console. You can add a snap-in from an empty MMC by running the MMC command from the Run box and then use the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box to add the appropriate snap-in. Answer A is incorrect because the default filename for the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in is dsa.msc, not dsa.mmc. Answers B and C are incorrect because the default filename for the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in is dsa.msc, not aduc.msc.

  5. Answer B is correct. If you use the Run As option and type the wrong username or password for the different user's security credentials, you receive a message box that states: Unable to log on: Logon failure: Unknown user name or bad password. Answer A is incorrect because the program will not run if you type the incorrect username or password for the Run As dialog box. Answer C is incorrect because the Run As option does not limit how many chances you have to type in the correct user credentials after you receive the logon failure message box. Answer D is incorrect because you do not need to type in the username or password to run a program as the currently logged on user; you do not need to use the Run As feature for this purpose.

  6. Answers B, D, and E are correct. The Results pane, the Console Tree, and the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MMC Windows Registry key are not new features; all of these components existed under the previous MMC version 2.0. Answer A is incorrect because improved error handling is a new feature of MMC 3.0. Answer C is incorrect because the redesigned Add or Remove Snap-in dialog is a new feature of MMC 3.0. Answer F is incorrect because the Action pane is also a new feature of MMC 3.0.

  7. Answer D is correct. You can use the csvde.exe command from a command prompt to import many users into Active Directory from .csv files. Answer A is incorrect because the dsadd.exe only creates a single user at a time. Answer B is incorrect because the ADUC console can only create one user at a time. Answer C is incorrect because the net user command can only create one user at a time.

  8. Answer D is correct. You can use the ldifde.exe command from a command prompt to import many users into Active Directory using .ldf files and the LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF). Answer A is incorrect because the dsquery.exe utility performs searches for Active Directory objects. Answer B is incorrect because the dsrm.exe command removes objects from Active Directory. Answer C is incorrect because the net user command can only create one user at a time. Answer E is incorrect because notepad.exe cannot import or export objects; it is only a text viewer and editor.

  9. Answer C is correct. You can use the dsmove command to move and rename objects in Active Directory. Answer A is incorrect because you cannot rename any Active Directory object with the dsadd command; you use it for adding users. Answer B is incorrect because you cannot rename any Active Directory object with the dsquery command; you use it for performing search operations. Answer D is incorrect because you cannot rename any Active Directory object with the dsrm command; you use it for removing objects. Answer E is incorrect because you cannot rename any Active Directory object with the dsget command; you use it for displaying an object's properties. Answer F is incorrect because you cannot rename any Active Directory object with the net user command; you use it for adding users and for viewing user information.

  10. Answers B and D are correct. You can right-click application programs, such as Internet Explorer, to select the Run As option. Certain other tools and utilities, such as most Control Panel applets, require you to hold down the Shift key and then right-click the icon to display the Run As menu option. Answer A is incorrect because the Network Connections system folder is one of the few Control Panel icons that do not support the Run As feature (even if you hold down the Shift key). Answer C is incorrect because the Printers and Faxes system folder is also one of the few Control Panel icons that do not support the Run As feature (even if you hold down the Shift key). Answer E is incorrect because the Active Directory Users and Computers console does not automatically prompt you to use the Run As option (nor does any other built-in utility).
