Objective: Installing and Configuring Microsoft Exchange Servers
SubObjective: Prepare the infrastructure for Exchange installation

 

Item Number: 70-236.1.1.2
Multiple Answer, Multiple Choice

 

You are the administrator of your company. The company’s network consists of a single Active Directory domain. You run the setup /PrepareAD command to prepare the Active Directory service for Exchange Server 2007.

 

Your company opens a branch office. You configure the branch office network as a separate Active Directory domain in the same forest as the main office domain. You want to enable the branch office administrator to run the setup /PrepareDomain command to prepare the branch office domain for Exchange 2007.

 

In which two groups should you add the branch office administrator to ensure the administrator is able to prepare the branch office domain while ensuring that you do not grant any unnecessary permission to the branch office administrator? (Each correct answer presents a part of the solution. Choose two.)

 

 

  1. The Exchange Organization Administrators group
  2. The Enterprise Admins group
  3. The Domain Admins group
  4. The Exchange Server Administrators group
  5. The Schema Admins group

 

Answer:
A. The Exchange Organization Administrators group
C. The Domain Admins group

 

Tutorial:
You should add the branch office administrator to the Exchange Organization Administrators group and the Domain Admins group. The Exchange 2007 setup includes the Active Directory preparation steps that can be performed to prepare the Active Directory service and domain as part of the Exchange 2007 installation. You can also perform the Active Directory preparation steps separately before you install Exchange 2007. To perform the Active Directory preparation, you must be a member of the Enterprise Admins and Schema Admins groups, and you must be a local administrator on the computer. You can run the setup /PrepareAD command to prepare the Active Directory for Exchange 2007. The setup /PrepareAD command configures global Exchange objects in Active Directory, creates the Exchange Universal Security Groups (USGs) in the root domain, sets permission on the Exchange configuration objects and prepares the current domain. You must be a member of the Enterprise Admins group to run the setup /PrepareAD command. You can run the setup /PrepareDomain command to prepare the local domain. If you want to prepare a specific domain, you can specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain you want to prepare in the setup /PrepareDomain command by using the following format: setup /PrepareDomain:<FQDN of domain you want to prepare>. To run the setup /PrepareDomain command, if the domain that you want to prepare existed before you ran the setup /PrepareAD command, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in the domain. If the domain that you want to prepare was created after you ran the setup /PrepareAD command, you must be a member of the Exchange Organization Administrators group, and you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in the domain.

 

You do not have to run the setup /PrepareDomain command in the same domain that you ran the setup /PrepareAD command. In this scenario, however, the setup /PrepareAD command was run in the root domain. Another domain in the tree needed to be prepared for Exchange 2007.

 

You should not add the branch office administrator to the Enterprise Admins group. In this scenario, you want to enable the branch office administrator to prepare only the branch office domain without granting him unnecessary permissions. To achieve this, you should add the branch office administrator to the Exchange Organization Administrators group and the Domain Admins group in the branch office domain. The Enterprise Admins group provides its members full control over all domains in the forest. Therefore, adding the branch office administrator to the Enterprise Admins group will grant additional permissions to the administrator than required.

 

You should not add the branch office administrator to the Exchange Server Administrators group. The Exchange Server Administrators group provides its members access to only local server Exchange configuration data, either in Active Directory or on the physical computer on which Active Directory is installed. The members of the Exchange Server Administrators group have permissions to administer a particular server, but they do not have permissions to perform operations that have a global impact in the Exchange organization.

 

You should not add the branch office administrator to the Schema Admins group. The Schema Admins group allows its members to modify the Active Directory schema. In this scenario, you want to allow the branch office administrator to prepare only the branch office domain, which requires membership of the Domain Admins group in the branch office domain and the Exchange Organization Administrators group.
