Zacker book, Chapter 7

I feel like we are starting to make progress. Give that its the first of the month I think I should possibly be able to get through this
text, go through measure up a few times and test again by the end of the month. We will see what it has in store for me this time.
I did actually find this chapter to be very helpful as it was full of illustrations and ideas I had not seen presented in other materials.
Well worth reading twice.

Please read the header for this post
regarding the answer key situation for these chapters.

1. Which of the following statements about Type I and Type II virtualization are true?

A. In Type I Virtualization the Hypervisor runs on top of a Host OS.

B. In Type I Virtualization the Hypervisor runs directly on the computer hardware.

C. In Type II Virtualization, the Hypervisor runs on top of a host OS.

D. In Type II Virtualization, the Hypervisor runs directly on the computer hardware.

Answer: B, and C I found this bit of information interesting as I had not seen it other places but its basicly telling you how
Hyper-V interacts with the host operating system in a way thats superior to other virtualizatioon products.

Its also helpful to provide a definition here for these two products, so here is some thing found in the oline
PDF book

Hyper-V uses Type I virtualization, in which the hypervisor is an
abstraction layer that interacts directly with the computer’s physical hardware—that is, without
an intervening host OS. The term hypervisor is intended to represent the level beyond the term
supervisor, in regard to the responsibility for allocating a computer’s processor clock cycles.
The hypervisor creates individual environments called partitions, each of which has its
own OS installed and accesses the computer’s hardware via the hypervisor. Unlike Type II
virtualization, no host OS shares processor time with the hypervisor. Instead, the hypervisor
designates the first partition it creates as the parent partition and all subsequent partitions as
child partitions

This arrangement, in which the hypervisor runs on top of a host OS, is called Type II virtualization.
By using the Type II hypervisor, you create a virtual hardware environment for each
VM. You can specify how much memory to allocate to each VM, create virtual disk drives by
using space on the computer’s physical drives, and provide access to peripheral devices. You
then install a “guest” OS on each VM, just as if you were deploying a new computer. The host
OS then shares access to the computer’s processor with the hypervisor, with each taking the
clock cycles it needs and passing control of the processor back to the other

2. Which of the following types of server virtulization provides the best performance for high-traffic servers
in production environments?

A. Type I virtualization

B. Type II virtualization

C. Presentation virtualization

D. Remote App

Answer: A, if you read the previous explanation its fairly obvious.

3. Which of the following Microsoft operating systems includes a license that enables you to create and unlimited number of
virtual instances of Server 2012

A. Hyper-V Server 2012

B. Windows Server 2012 Datacenter

C. Windows Server 2012 Standard

D. Windows Server 2012 Foundation

Answer: B allows unlimited, C allows 2 and D allows for 0 virtualized instances. Having trouble finding a whole lot of useful
info for comparisons sake other than pdf shown on this blog

4. Which of the following Hyper-V features make it possible for a VM to function with a minimum Ram value
that is less than the start up value?

A. Smart paging

B. Dynamic memory

C. Memory weight

D. Guest integration services

Answer: B, given these choices which appear to be tricky answers as none of them are straight forward, again kind of
using crow wing logic from my illustration but the answer according to the text is that dynamic memory
is the technology that allows more fluid, so to speak, ram functions.

5. When you install the Hyper-V role on a server running Windows Server 2012, the instance of the OS on which you installed the role
is converted to which system element?

A. The hypervisor

B. The Virtual Machine Monitor

C. The parent partition

D. A child partition

Answer: C, the parent partition, hypervisor is the software and VMM has to do with VmWare

6. If an administrator wants to install additional roles along with Hyper-V what does Microsoft recommend the administrator do?

A. Microsoft recommends that you install other roles on one of the VMs you create with Hyper-V.

B. Microsoft recommends that you install only roles related to Hyper-V

C. Microsoft recommends you install only roles on the parent partition

D. There are no recommendations against roles installed with Hyper-V

Answer: A, according to the text you should install additional roles such as DHCP on a VM. It doesnt implicitly say this
but its implied that this is for performance reasons. Again I question the cost effectiveness of this but perhaps
if the question about how Hyper-V operates directly on the hardware instead of on top of the OS is true I assume its
effecent but even still the additional clock cycles of having the OS installed where Hyper-V is installed still make it
only efficient in terms of downtown for critical services and development.

7. What are the two files used for every VM?

A. A saved state file & a .vmc file in INF format

B. A .vmc file in INF format and virtual hard disk (.vhd or vhdx) files for the guest OS and data

C. A saved-state file and virtual hard disk (.vhd or .vhdx) files for the guest OS applications and data

D. A virtual machine configuration (.vmc) file in XML format and virtual hard disk (.vhd or .vhdx) files for the guest OS and data

Answer: D, every VM has a .vmc xml file and it has to have a VHD associated with it thats only used by that virtual machine.

8. When using the create a virtual machine wizard, how is the virtual hard disk created by default?

A. You set the maximum size and it starts at that size

B. It starts at 40 GB and warns the admin when close to full

C. It starts small and dynamically expands up to the maximum size you specify

D. It starts small and continually expands to fill the available storage

Answer: D, this is known as a dynamically expanding VHD. There is an older technet article about the subject available
here some of the terminology is older
however the ideas are correct, according to whats in the text.

9. What operating systems can an administrator install on a VM?

A. Windows Server 2008 and newer

B. Windows Server 2003 and newer

C. Any Microsoft windows edition

D. Several Microsoft products as well as Red Hat and SuSe Linux

Answer: D, you can install almost any thing on a VM

10. In some cases, certain Hyper-V guest OS features do not function properly using the OS’s own device drivers. What can an
administrator do?

A. Install and configure Guest Integration Services

B. Install Hyper-V manager

C. Reinstall Hyper-V

D. Try a different operating system

Answer: A, according to the test if native OS features do not function properly try integration services to get them up and

Zacker book, Chapter 6

On to chapter 5, only 14 more question sets to go for this round. Leaving my self some room to go through the book again and possibly
go through the Panek book as well. Not sure if I will have time for that before my shots at exams are up but I dont imagine I would want
to quite studying even after those are over as Im sure the knowledge will transfer. However I did pick up a Network + book, I think I
mentioned that previously, as Ive found my fundamental/basic networking skills to be slightly lacking.

Edit: again, Please read the header for this post
regarding the answer key situation for these chapters.

1. Which of the following tasks must you perform before you can manage a remote server running Server 2012 using the
compmgmt.msc (computer management) snap in?

A. Enable WinRM on the remote server.

B. Enable the COM+ Network Access rule on the remote server.

C. Enable the Remote Event Log Management rules on the remote server.

D. Install RSAT on the remote server

Answer: B, this one was actually verifiable, its still probably good to read the RSAT tools link even though it has nothing to do
with firewall rules.

2. Which of the following PowerShell cmdlets can you use to list the existing Windows Firewall rules on a computer running Windows
Server 2012?

A. Get-NetFirewallRule

B. Set-NetFirewallRule

C. Show-NetFirewallRule

D. New-NetFirewallrule

Answer: A,C you could also specify certain parms to have them listed in an orginzed fashion. Like you could use the

cmdlet to get them really organized
or there are a lot of them I would test the recursive function just to see if it changes the results. Not sure if it would or not
I suppose that would be easy enough to test in a MSFT lab. They do time out rather quickly though.

3. Which of the following updates must you install on a server running windows server 2008 before you can connect to it using Server 2008
before you can connect to it using Windows Server 2012 SrvMan?

A. .NET Framework 3.5

B. .NET Framework 4.0

C. Windows Management Framework 3.0

D. Windows Server 2008 R2

Answer: C and B specifics like this are always a little tricky for me. I suppose I could put some effort into remembering 4.0
In addition here is an article
on this particular subject. Pretty sure Ill remember this one now.

4. When you run Server Manager from a Windows 8 Workstation using Remote Server Admin tools, which of the following elements do
not appear in the default display?

A. The Dashboard

B. The local Server homepage

C. The All Servers homepage

D. The Welcome tile

Answer: B, the local server homepage clearly cant display as your not on a server.

5. Windows Firewall is enabled by default in Windows Server 2012. How are remote management tools affected?

A. Both MMC and WinRM are blocked. You must alter inbound Firewall rules on the remote server.

B. MMC is blocked. You must alter inbound Windows Firewall rules on the remote server.

C. WinRM is blocked. You must alter inbound Windows Firewall rules on the remote server.

D. Neither MMC not WinRM is blocked.

Answer: B is true but a brings up an interesting point, at least to me, is server manager considered part of WinRM? Im assuming its the
same thing and you should be able to add any server in your domain to your Server Manager console as long as its a 2012 sever
without any issues. If you had trouble with that check out this TechNet article
on the subject indicating that WinRM should allow you to add any server in your domain. As MMC is kind of an out of date technology
it is not enabled by default and requires firewall configuration even inside the domain. Powershell remote management is very similar
but as with adding a server to your server manager it to requires you to specify credentials when accessing, for more info on that
check here

Theres also a video on this topic however you dont see him specify any kind of domain credentials when he adds a server to server manager
so perhaps we should investigate further so we are certain about this process. Any way for starters heres that video which is helpful for
question 8 as well as this guy is running server manager from a desktop

Ok so if we check with Technet on adding servers to server manager
about a third of the way down the page it goes into the process of providing those and it seems like it would be an intuitive process after use
as it basically describes it as being similar to a UAC prompt only you are only asked the first time and they are cached. So dont leave your
machine unlocked! That said, I dont have the luxury of using server so hopefully I dont miss an overly complex scenario question on the subject.

6. How can you remotely configure the firewall on several servers at once?

A. Use the powershell command set-netfirewallrule -name -enabled true

B. Applying the configuration change to the applicable server grouping in Server Manager.

C. Creating a configuration file for Jr. Admins to configure servers in parallel.

D. Applying a Group Policy related to Windows Firewall to the servers.

Answer: A, D would both work for firewall management. The TechNet article on using GP to deploy firewall rules is fairly old
so im linking a newer article in this case.

7. The Server Manager interface accommodates several servers, tested at nearly 100. What did the text (Zacker says lesson) highlight
as an element that can easily degrade Server Manager performance, and how to resolve it?

A. The Event tile generates a large number of records. It is resolved by configuring the types ages and sources of events.

B. The hardware resources of the Server Manager computer can degrade Server Manager. It is resolved by adding additional server memory.

C. The server’s screen resolution is set too high. It is resolved by choosing a lower resolution.

D. The amount of data the sever sends to all remote servers can degrade Server Manager. It is resolved by NIC teaming.

Answer: B, Adding that many servers can really tie up network and processor bandwidth.

8. By default Server Manager does not connect with down-level servers (for example a 2012 box could not connect to an unpatched
08 box). What must be done to properly connect?

A. Remote manage the down-level server by MMC.

B. Disable the Windows Firewall on the down-level server.

C. Add WinRM 3.0 and .NET 4.0 to the down-level server to ensure its patched

D. Perform an in place upgrade to server 2012 to all 08 R2 machines and lower.

Answer: C, as previously mentioned in the links and texts above.

9. Server Manager is properly connecting and managing your down-level servers. What tool do you use to add roles and features
to theses computers?

A. Using the Add Roles and Features Wizard in Server Manager to install the role.

B. Using Windows PowerShell to install the role.

C. Using the MMC and the applicable snap-in.

D. You cannot add a role remotely to a down-level server.

Answer: You could use A or B but generally its easier to use A. Regardless I thought it might be helpful to watch a video on the

There’s also a useful Technet article

10. PowerShell web access gateway allows ________

A. Users to remotely connect to their desktops.

B. administrators to remotely manage IIS servers.

C. Uses a command-line alternative to standard websites.

D. Administrators remote management of servers using commands.

Answer: D, this one is pretty straight forward. While we are on a role here why not put another video in here feature our buddy Rick Claus
he has a pretty decent twitter account if your into that sort of stuff. Its kind of sales demo but its still cool.

Thats all for this round. I dont know if youve noticed the punctuation issue with some posts have periods and some dont. I hope you dont find that
weird as the text does that as well. Not sure why and I have mixed feelings as to if answers are complete sentences that would require punctuation.

Part 2 of “Q” 70-410 test prep Q & A

In part 2 of this 6 part set up. I would go for 3 tonight but I got a new book thats just begging for some attention tonight. The answers are a little
more personally worded as im starting to get comfotable with this set up. I have a tendency to be overly appologetic but none the less I hope you
dont mind the refferences (see jokes) and format.

11. Server1 is a new file server that store user data for your Stevie B’s Chicken A La King A La Carte. You have noticed that
Server1 is getting low on HD space. To fix the issue you decide to add a new 3 TB disk named Volume 4. What is the best way to configure Disk2
so that you can create a new 3-TB volume on Server1.

A. Format it as FAT

B. Use DiskPart and convert the disk to a
GPT disk.

C. Use the MBR partition
table when creating the volume(4)

D. Attach the new volume as a VHD

Answer: B is recomened for disks larger than 2TB in size. Doesnt work with older versions and when you add
a smaller disk its added as an MBR disk. If you really feel the need to convert a smaller disk to GPT you can do that
using diskpart as long as its blank.

12. You are planning to design a new storage space on a 2012 R2 server with four 2-TB disks. Your
goal is to maximize the amount of storage but also provide fault tolerance should a single disk fail. What kind
of storage space should you create?

A. Parity storage space

B. Mirror storage Space

C. Spanned Volume

D. Simple storage space

Answer: A Given that a mirror storage space is going to provide the most fault tolerance but the least
amount of efficiency we can rule that out. A spanned volume is simply two disks combined to make
one disk, so there’s no fault tolerance there. So that leaves us with Parity storage space given that
a simple volume has nothing to do with fault tolerance, it just limits the options as to the type of disks that you can create.

13. You have been asked to design a local storage solution that offers fast read and write access for
your files. Data protection is not a concern. Which RAID offers the highest read/write?





Answer: Raid 0 or A is clearly the winner here as it offers no redundancy. Ive noticed that this appears to be the same as a “spanned volume”

14. Several months after installing a new Windows Server 2012 R2 file server and configuring quotas for users in her
company’s AD DS domain, Ozzy notices that the hard disk on which users’ shared folders are located is quickly becoming full. Upon checking through
the contents he asks Sharon why she has so many photos of David Hasselhoff. Ozzy would like to prevent Sharon from storing Davids records on
the company drives. What should Ozzy do?

A. Use File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) To block audio/video file types and email Sharon informing her to use Spotify.

B. Use FSRM to generate an alert when ever Sharon saves saves audio file types

C. Modify disk quotas to reduce the amount of disk space avalible to users.

D. Modify the quota to block saving audio files

Answer: A, not sure why you would use a quota setting (i dont think its possible) to do what FSRM does.

15. You need to create a shared folder on your Windows Server 2012 R2 computer
that users on a UNIX server require access to. You want to configure access-denied assistance and
quotas on this share. Which of the following options do you pick in the New Share Wizard that you
started from server manager?

A. SMB Share-Quick (its really hard to find a consitant answer for these, Ill make a blog post and update)

B. NFS Share-Advanced

C. SMB Share-Advanced

D. NFS Share-Quick

E. SMB Share-Applications

Answer: If you want to configure all the options at setup its going to be B however you can chose the quick option and configure
settings after creation. At least thats my understanding from watching youtube videos as MSFT isnt exactly specific in TechNet articles yet this topic
appears frequently on practace tests. According to our source “Q” it is in deed B.

16. You have granted a user named Lemmy the read NTFS Permission on a folder named Sales. Lemmy is also a member of the BlueFinance group which was granted
explicitly denied the Full Control NTFS permission on the Sales folder. What is Lemmys effective
access to the folder? (obviously he doesnt care at this point but lets pretend he does)

A. Full Control

B. Lemmy does not have access to the folder.

C. Modify.

D. Read.

Answer: Proably D but these things are tricky. D is what it seems to indicate the goal his however
we may not have obtained our goal. According to our source material layering an explicit deny of full control
into this equasion would amount to server granting no access to the share so the answer is B. There is an interesting
bit about this in the server 2012 MCSA google + group which I highly recommend joining as all sorts of information is
shared amongst members. I think this link should get you there. Poke
around till you find some practace test Q & As.

17. Which NTFS Quota configuration should you enable to actively notify users that they are nearing
their quota limit?

A. Set Warning level

B. Deny disk space to users exceeding quota limit

C. Limit disk space

D. Log event when user exceeds their warning level

Answer: A obviously, not sure if there is much need for links in the example.

18. Brian is the admin for Stevie B’s Chickin A La King A La Carte (I get it Contoso is shorter) which is currently opporating
and ADDS network with a single domain. The Pultry department (as opposed to the noodle & sauce departments, not to be confused) has
recently aquired a high-speed laser printer to handle their printing needs.
Brian has created three dom local groups on the print server for purposes of managing the printer, as follows: Designers
have print permissions, Supervisors have manage documents permissions, and managers have manager printer permissions. Brian needs
to give a staff memeber in the pultry department named Lloyd the ability to pause, resume and cancel documents printer by all staff
but not control the permissions assigned to other staff members on the printer. What group should Lloyd be a part of?

A. Supervisors

B. Designers

C. Managers

D. Brian does not need to add Lloyd to any of these groups she can performore these tasks by default.

Answer: A. Ok So clearly she needs to be a member of a group that manages document permissions and that group is Supervisors, A. For more information
about print permissions check here.

19. You have recently configured a new Windows Server 2012 R2 print server. you install a new high-ca=acity printer in one of your
satellite offices. For ease of administration the printer is shared on the print server located in the corporate office. All statlite
users are configured to use the shared printer Server1Printer1. Users in
one of the branch sites print to this printer over the corporate WAN link. You need to
ensure that users are able to print to the printer in the event of a WAN link failure. What can you
do to meet this requirement?

A. Disable Printer pooling

B. Install a second printer and share it as a server1Printer2 as a backup.

C. Enable Printer pooling

D> Enable Branch Office Direct Printing

Answer: D in the case of using a WAN link and having a failure its going to cause a failure but why a sat office would print to another physical
location is beyond me. Or print to another location then have that printer send the doc to a local print device. Thats scenario
is a perfect example of hard questions due to a lack of break fix methodology that lends its self more to a complete solution as opposed
to a partial answer. This problem isnt as bad on the real test but Ive noticed it to be a real pain on the practace tests. Its just outside
the relm of liner thinking which makes it much harder than it needs to be due to vague conceptual ideas that horrificly incomplete. WRITE COMPLETE
SNTENCZ PLZZZ! Tank u! domo!

20. Your network consist of a single Active Directory domain. Server1 is a windows server 2012 R2 server with the print and document
server role installed. Only one print device exists for the company. Sales, Finance and Marketing users all share the same
print device. You need to ensure that all usuers can print to this print device but that finance documents print before any other
department. What should you do?

A. Add three printers. Modify the priorities and security settings of each printer so that individual deparments have their own
printer to submit jobs to.

B. Purchase another print device and configure a Printer pool.

C. Add one printer, establish a priority on the printer and require all departments to submit jobs to this printer.

D. Add one printer. Configure the printer security settings to allow finance users to print. Deny all other users the abilty to print

Answer: A, just mod the print priorities and have all the docs go to the same printer. Any one in the group with the highest
priority will print first.
