Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

  1. Five of your company's employees have Windows 2000 Professional portable computers.The employees use their portable computers in a network enabled docking station when they are at their desks.When the employees are working outside of the office, they use the portable computers without network connectivity.

    You have just installed wireless PC card network adapters in the portable computers so that the employees can access the network when they are in the conference rooms in the office building.

    You need to configure the portable computers for optimum performance in all of the working environments.

    What should you do?

    1. Configure the wireless PC card network adapters to use DHCP to obtain their IP addresses.
    2. Configure three different hardware profiles on each portable computer.
    3. Configure the wireless PC Card network adapters to use Automatic Private IP Addressing when they cannot detect a DHCP server.
    4. Instruct each employee to unplug the wireless PC card network adapter whenever the portable computer is attached to a network-enabled docking station.

    Answer: B

    Explanation: To ensure the optimal performance in all three networking environments, you should create three separate hardware profiles that the users can choose from under different network environments.You should create a profile to be used when the portable computer is docked at the office; another profile for when the portable computer is not docked in the office but uses the wireless PC card network adapters; and a third profile for when the portable computers are used in the field and are not connected to the network.

  7. You are the administrator of your company's network.You attempt to install a printer driver on a Windows 2000 computer for a user named Linda.

    You receive the following error message: "Error 11-Cannot install printer driver." The driver was originally downloaded from the printer manufacturer's Web site.You have successfully used the driver in the past on their Windows 2000 Professional computers. You want to configure Linda's computer to check for driver integrity and to allow you to install this printer driver.

    What should you do?

    1. Configure driver signing to display a message before installing an unsigned driver.
    2. Configure driver signing to ignore File Signature Verification. Create a Local Computer Policy to enable Windows File Protection.
    3. Use the Add Printer Driver wizard to install the driver. Create a Local Computer Policy to enable Windows File Protection.
    4. Use the Print Troubleshooter. Configure the computer to prevent the installation of unsigned drivers.

    Answer: A

    Explanation: The error message in this scenario indicates that the Driver Signing option, File Signature Verification, is set to Block.Therefore the unsigned driver cannot be installed.Changing the File Signature Verification to Warn will allow the installation of the device driver.It will also show a warning message when you try to install an unsigned driver.The warning message also contains an option to install the unsigned drivers anyway.These settings are set in the Driver Signing settings on the Hardware tab of the System applet on the Control Panel.

  8. Users report that some shortcuts on the Start menu of their Windows 2000 Professional computers are hidden.They want to access their shortcuts without having to click a scroll arrow.

  10. You are the administrator of a Windows 2000 network.You install Windows 2000 Professional on a new computer and configure the TCP/IP settings to have a static IP address.

    While testing network connectivity from the new computer, you discover an error in the DNS server address that is configured in the TCP/IP settings.You configure the correct DNS server address, which is 10.1.1.5.However, you are still unable to successfully connect to network resources by name.

    You run the IPconfig/all command.The results indicate that the DNS server address is now configured as 0.0.0.0

    You need to ensure that the computer can connect to network resources by name.

    What should you do?

    1. Stop and restart the DNS Client service.
    2. Add 10.1.1.5 to the DNS server list on the TCP/IP Advanced Properties tab.
    3. Add an A (host) record for the computer to the DNS server's zone file.
    4. Configure your DHCP server to have a DNS server address of 10.1.1.5.

    Answer: A

    Explanation: In this scenario the client computer does not have the correct information in its local DNS cache. There are two ways to solve this problem.You could use ipconfig /flushdns to reset the DNS cache, or you could stop and restart the DNS client service.
