Sub-objective: Plan interoperability with Exchange in separate organizations.

Multiple answers, multiple-choice

You are a messaging engineer. Your company has an Exchange Server 2007 organization in the stayandsleep.com domain. Users all use Outlook 2007 to access their e-mail. Exchange is configured to support scheduling meeting rooms and other resources.

Your company acquires BCD Train. The network at BCD Train is configured as an Active Directory forest with two domains. BCD Train also has an Exchange 2007 organization. Users all use Outlook 2007 to access their e-mail.

The company plans to keep two separate forests at least for the next year. Users in both organizations must have access to global address lists (GALs) for each location and must be able to schedule meeting rooms and resources in either forest. You plan to use Basic authentication over Transport Layer Security (TLS). You need to configure cross-forest connectivity. What should you do? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose three.)

A.    Create a Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) Send connector in each forest.
B.    Install Microsoft Identity Integration Service 2003 on a member server in each forest.
C.    Create a Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) Receive connector in each forest.
D.    Install the Microsoft Exchange Inter-Organization Replication tool in each forest.
E.    Use Identity Lifecycle Management (ILM) Feature Pack 1 to create a management agent in each forest.
F.    Enable the Availability service in each forest.

Answer:
A, E, F

Tutorial:
You should create an SMTP Send connector in each forest. You need to configure an SMTP Send connector to allow a Hub Transport server in one organization to send e-mail to an Exchange server in another organization.

You should also use ILM Feature Pack 1 to create a management agent in each forest. You need to create a GALSync management agent and enable GALSync to synchronize GAL information between organizations. ILM Feature Pack 1 automatically provisions mail-enabled users and contacts and using the Update-Recipient cmdlet. The ILM GALSync management agent also provides synchronization for resources, such as meeting rooms.

You should also enable the Availability service in each forest. The Availability service allows Outlook 2007 clients to retrieve free and busy information.

You should not install MIIS 2003 on a member server in each forest. Although MIIS 2003 can provide GAL synchronization for Exchange 2007, you would need to manually provision the Exchange 2007 users. Also, it does not provide synchronization for meeting rooms and other resources.

You should not create an SMTP Receive connector in each forest. You need to create an SMTP Send connector, but not an SMTP Receive connector when you are using Basic authentication or Basic authentication over TLS. You only need to create a Receive connector if you are using external authentication — for example, if you are using IPsec to secure the connection.

You should not install the Microsoft Exchange Inter-Organization Replication tool in each forest. This tool is used when you need to make free/busy information available to users who are using earlier versions of Outlook, or if you need to make public folders available across organizations.

Objective: Plan for high availability implementation.
Sub-objective: Plan a recovery solution implementation.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You are a messaging engineer. Your messaging environment consists of one Mailbox server, one Client Access Server and one Hub Transport server. Mailboxes are located on a single storage group with two databases: ExecMB and EmployeesMB. You perform a weekly full backup and a nightly incremental backup.

The ExecMB database becomes corrupt. You need to restore messaging services to users with mailboxes in the ExecMB database as quickly as possible. What should you do?

A.    Create a dial-tone database on a new server. Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the recovery storage group. Merge data from the dial-tone database to the recovered database.
B.    Create a dial-tone database on the Mailbox server. Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the recovery storage group. Swap the dial-tone database with the recovered database. Merge data from the dial-tone database to the recovered database.
C.    Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the recovery storage group. Create a new database in the existing storage group. Move the mailboxes from the recovery storage group to the new database.
D.    Create a dial-tone database in the existing storage group. Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the dial-tone database.

Answer:
B

Tutorial:
You should perform the following steps:

•    Create a dial-tone database on the Mailbox server.
•    Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the recovery storage group.
•    Swap the dial-tone database with the recovered database.
•    Merge data from the dial-tone database to the recovered database.

Creating a dial-tone database allows the users to send and receive e-mail while the database data is being restored from backup. Because the server is still functional, the simplest way to recover is to create the dial-tone database on the Mailbox server. Next, you can restore the mailboxes to the recovery storage group. After the data has been restored, you should swap the dial-tone database with the recovered database so users have access to old messages. Finally, you should merge the messages that were sent and received during the recovery process from the dial-tone database to the recovered database.

You should not perform the following steps:

•    Create a dial-tone database a new server.
•    Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the recovery storage group.
•    Merge data from the dial-tone database to the recovered database.

Although you can create a dial-tone database on a different server, it will take longer to restore messaging services because you will need to move the mailboxes to the new database. Also, you cannot merge data from the dial-tone database to the recovered database because users cannot send and receive mail from a mailbox located in a database in the recovery storage group. You could merge the database in the recovery storage group with the dial-tone database. However, this would take significantly longer than swapping the dial-tone and recovered databases first so that the dial-tone database was in the recovery storage group, and then merging it with the restored database.

You should not perform the following steps:
•    Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the recovery storage group.
•    Create a new database in the existing storage group.
•    Move the mailboxes from the recovery storage group to the new database.

These steps will not allow users to begin sending and receiving e-mail until after restore is complete.

You should not perform the following steps:

•    Create a dial-tone database in the existing storage group.
•    Restore the ExecMB mailboxes to the dial-tone database.

This would be the same as restoring the database directly from the backup. Users would not get access to their mailboxes until the restore was complete and the database remounted. This does not restore messaging to users as quickly as possible.

Objective: Plan messaging security and compliance implementation.
Sub-objective: Plan the anti-virus and anti-spam implementation.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You are a messaging engineer. Your company has an Exchange Server 2007 organization. An Edge Transport server is located on the perimeter network. It is configured to provide anti-spam filtering using the safe sender agent.

A user receives a virus transmitted inside a .zip file. The virus is a .vbs script. You need to implement a solution that meets the following requirements:

•    Messages should be screened for .vbs attachments, even if they are enclosed in a .zip file.
•    Messages that have potential harmful attachments must not be sent to a user.
•    Users should be notified if someone attempts to send them a message with a potentially harmful attachment.

You need to configure Exchange to meet the requirements. What should you do?

A.    Configure an attachment filter that quarantines .vbs attachments.
B.    Configure an attachment filter that blocks .vbs and .zip attachments.
C.    Implement attachment filtering using Forefront Security for Exchange Server.
D.    Configure an attachment filter that strips .vbs attachments.

Answer:
C

Tutorial:
You should implement attachment filtering using Forefront Security for Exchange Server. Forefront Security includes a file filter that can examine the contents of compressed files, such as .zip files. The standard attachment filter included with the Edge Transport server does not include this capability.

You should not configure an attachment filter that quarantines .vbs attachments. The standard attachment filter included with the Edge Transport server does not include the ability to quarantine attachments. If you need to quarantine attachments, you will need to install and configure Forefront Security for Exchange Server.

You should not configure an attachment filter that blocks .vbs and .zip attachments. If you create a filter that blocks .vbs attachments, users will not be notified if an e-mail that contains a blocked attachment was received. Also, if the filter is configured to block .zip attachments, all .zip files will be blocked, including legitimate files.

You should not configure an attachment filter that strips .vbs attachments. Doing so would meet all requirements except the ability to screen messages for compressed .vbs files. For that, you need Forefront Security for Exchange Server.

Objective: Plan the Exchange topology deployment.
Sub-objective: Plan the deployment of required Exchange services.

Single answer, multiple choice

You are a messaging engineer. Your Exchange organization has an Edge Transport server named EX-ET and a server named EX01 that hosts the Hub Transport, Client Access and Mailbox server roles. An EdgeSync subscription exists between EX-ET and EX01.

Mail sent from outside the Exchange organization is currently addressed to stayandsleep.com. Your company is changing its name. Future e-mail should be sent to bcdtrain.com. You need to configure Exchange to receive mail sent to bcdtrain.com.

What should you do?

A.    Execute the following on EX01: New-AcceptedDomain -Name "bcdtrain" -DomainName bcdtrain.com -DomainType Authoritative.
B.    Execute the following on EX-ET: New-AcceptedDomain -Name "bcdtrain" -DomainName bcdtrain.com -DomainType InternalRelay.
C.    Execute the following on EX01: Set-AcceptedDomain -Name "bcdtrain" -DomainName bcdtrain.com -MakeDefault true.
D.    Execute the following on EX-ET: Set-AcceptedDomain -Name "bcdtrain" -DomainName bcdtrain.com -MakeDefault true.

Answer:
A

Tutorial:
You should execute the following on EX01:

New-AcceptedDomain -Name "bcdtrain" -DomainName bcdtrain.com -DomainType Authoritative

You need to add bcdtrain.com as an accepted domain. To do so, you must execute New-AcceptedDomain on the Hub Transport server. You should set the DomainType to Authoritative because e-mail addressed to that domain is stored in a Mailbox server within the organization.

You should not execute the following on EX-ET:

New-AcceptedDomain -Name "bcdtrain" -DomainName bcdtrain.com -DomainType InternalRelay

You should not execute New-AcceptedDomain on the Edge Transport server. The accepted domain is stored in Active Directory. Therefore, you should execute New-AcceptedDomain on a Hub Transport server and allow the configuration to replicate through the EdgeSync subscription. Also, the domain type should be set to Authoritative, not InternalRelay. You set the domain type to InternalRelay if you want mail addressed to that domain to be treated as internal mail, but routed to an external SMTP server.

You should not execute the following on EX01 or EX-ET:

Set-AcceptedDomain -Name "bcdtrain" -DomainName bcdtrain.com -MakeDefault true

You need to add the accepted domain before you can set it to be the default domain. Also, you would execute Set-AcceptedDomain on the Hub Transport server, not on the Edge Transport server.

Objective: Plan for Messaging Environment Maintenance.
Sub-objective: Plan for monitoring and reporting.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You are a messaging engineer. Your company has an Exchange Server 2003 organization. You use Microsoft Operations Management (MOM) 2005 to monitor the Exchange Servers and produce reports on various services. MOM is configured to send e-mail alerts to several different members of the IT staff.

You upgrade your Exchange organization to Exchange Server 2007 and decommission all Exchange Server 2003 servers. You need to configure MOM to monitor the Exchange Server 2007 servers. What should you do?

A.    Import the Exchange 2007 Management Pack and select the Replace option.
B.    Add the MSExchangeADTopology service to the list of services to monitor.
C.    Add the ADAM_MSExchange service to the list of services to monitor.
D.    Import the Exchange 2007 Management Pack and select the Update option.

Answer:
D

Tutorial:
You should import the Exchange 2007 Management Pack and select the Update option. You need to import the Exchange 2007 Management Pack to configure MOM to monitor Exchange Server 2007 services. When you import the pack, you need to select the Update option to ensure that the membership list of the Mail Administrators is not cleared. The Mail Administrators group is the group to which MOM sends alerts.

You should not import the Exchange 2007 Management Pack and select the Replace option. If you select the Replace option, membership in the Mail Administrators group will be cleared.

You should not add the MSExchangeADTopology service to the list of services to monitor. When you import the Exchange 2007 Management Pack, all Exchange services are added. You cannot add an Exchange 2007 service to the Exchange 2003 Management Pack.

You should not add the ADAM_MSExchange service to the list of services to monitor. When you import the Exchange 2007 Management Pack, all Exchange services are added. You cannot add an Exchange 2007 service to the Exchange 2003 Management Pack.
