These questions are based on 70-557 – TS: Microsoft Forefront Client and Server, Configuring
Self Test Software Practice Test
Objective: Deploy client agents and policies.
Sub-objective: Review status and activity.
Multiple answer, multiple-choice.
You are a network administrator for your company. You deploy Microsoft Forefront Client Security on all client computers in your company’s network. You want to view the Policy Deployment status chart and generate reports for the number of computers deployed with Client Security policies. You also want to view the deployment status report for virus and spyware definitions. You navigate to the Client Security reporting server and open Report Manager.
Which reports should you view to obtain the required information? (Choose two.)
- Alert Detail and Detail History.
- Deployment Version Status.
- Malware History and Summary.
- Security Summary.
B. Deployment Version Status.
D. Security Summary.
You should view the Deployment Version Status and Security Summary reports to achieve the objective in this scenario. The Deployment Version Status report generates the deployment status reports, grouped by computer, for five Client Security components: Spyware Definitions, Virus Definitions, Antimalware Engine, Vulnerabilities Engine and Vulnerabilities Definitions.
The Security Summary section in Report Manager displays the security state report of all managed computers protected by Client Security. This report also includes the Policy Deployment status and Connectivity summary status charts. You can view the deployment status of all Forefront Client Security policies on client computers in the Policy Deployment status chart. You can sort the view by Current Computers, External Computers, Older Computers and Unknown Computers.
You also can access the various summary reports by opening the Forefront Client Security management console and clicking the desired summary link in the Dashboard tab.
You should not view the Alert Detail and Detail History report to achieve the objective in this scenario. The Alert Detail and Detail History report displays the description of any virus or spyware alerts during the reported time span, a trend chart for the alert’s instances and the number of computers that reported the alert.
You should not view the Malware History and Summary report to achieve the objective in this scenario. The Malware History and Summary report lists malware or unclassified software detected on client computers during the time span specified by the report, grouped by the action taken.
