Questions (December 14, 2001)

Question 1
You've installed a printer named PrintSrv8 on your Windows 2000 server, which has two volumes (C and D). You've formatted both drives with NTFS, and you've configured a disk quota on the C drive that lets users save no more than 20MB of data to the drive. You haven't configured a quota for the D drive. The C drive currently has 1GB of free space, and the D drive has 500MB of free space.

Several users have complained that they can't print to PrintSrv8. You've noticed that the problem tends to occur when users try to print large jobs. How can you solve this problem with the least amount of administrative effort? (Choose the best answer.)

  1. Delete the printer and create a new printer on the server's D drive.
  2. Free up disk space on the C drive by running Disk Cleanup.
  3. Move the spool folder to the D drive.
  4. Convert the disk from a Basic disk to a Dynamic disk.
  5. Change the default permissions on PrintSrv8 to give Authenticated Users the Manage Printers permission.

Question 2
You've configured roaming profiles for several of your users. Some of these users routinely save large documents to their My Documents folders. Because the My Documents folder is part of a user's profile, these users tend to experience slow logon times as their profiles download. You want to configure the My Documents folder so that its contents remain on a central server instead of being downloaded to client desktops each time users log on. Which of the following steps should you take? (Choose the best answer.)

  1. Configure the Desktop folder to remain available offline through Offline Files, and configure the folder to synchronize when a users logs on or logs off.
  2. Change the name of the ntuser.dat file to ntuser.man to switch the roaming profile from a personal roaming profile to a mandatory roaming profile.
  3. Set a disk quota on the My Documents folder on each user's desktop. Set a maximum limit on the amount of data that a user can save to that folder and check the "Redirect excess data to network server" box. Enter a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path that specifies the network share location to which you want to redirect the data.
  4. Create an empty folder on the network server. Share this folder and configure it as a Dfs root share. Configure the My Documents folder for each user to be a Dfs link.
  5. Use Group Policy to enable Folder Redirection and configure the My Documents folder to redirect to a share on the central server.

Question 3
Setup Manager, a tool on the Windows 2000 CD-ROM, can help you create scripts to support automated installations. Which of the following installation types can you perform using an answer file that you create with Setup Manager? (Choose all that apply.)

  1. Active Directory (AD) installation
  2. Certificate Services installation
  3. Remote Installation Services (RIS)
  4. Sysprep installation
  5. Win2K Server Terminal Services installation
  6. Win2K unattended installation

Answers (December 14, 2001)

Answer to Question 1
The correct answer is C—Move the spool folder to the D drive. The quotas that you configured on the C drive are preventing some users from spooling their documents. If the users have other data on the drive, the quota might be preventing them from saving additional data (e.g., large print jobs) on the C drive. For more information, see " Moving the Windows Default Paging and Spool File" at the Microsoft Web site.

Answer to Question 2
The correct answer is E—Use Group Policy to enable Folder Redirection and configure the My Documents folder to redirect to a share on the central server. You use Group Policy's Folder Redirection extension to redirect certain Windows 2000 special folders to network locations—specifically, folders such as My Documents and My Pictures that are located under Documents and Settings.

Answer to Question 3
The correct answers are C—RIS; D—Sysprep installation; and F—Win2K unattended installation. When you run the Setup Manager Wizard, it asks, "Which product does this answer file install?" and presents you with three possible answers:

  • Win2K Unattended Installation
  • Sysprep Install
  • RIS

The Setup Manager application is available in the deploy.cab file in the Win2K CD-ROM's \Support\Tools folder. You can use a standard text editor (e.g., Notepad) to edit the text file that Setup Manager creates.
