Objective : Installing Windows XP Professional
SubObjective : Perform and troubleshoot an unattended installation of Windows XP Professional.
Single Answer Multiple Choice

 

You administer a Windows 2000 network for your company. You are planning to deploy Windows XP Professional on 25 computers that require different hardware configurations. You want to automate the installation of Windows XP Professional on the 25 computers in the most efficient manner.

 

What should you do?

 

 

  1. Use a UDF only to automate the installation.
  2. Use an answer file only to automate the installation.
  3. Use an answer file and a UDF to automate the installation.
  4. Create and deploy an image of a computer running Windows XP Professional.

 

 

 

Answer:
C. Use an answer file and a UDF to automate the installation.

Tutorial:
You should use an answer file and a Uniqueness Database File (UDF) to automate the installation of Windows XP Professional on the 25 computers that require different configurations. Automating an installation refers to the process of creating files to supply the settings that a user would otherwise be prompted to provide during setup. An answer file can supply some or all of the settings required by Setup during installation. For a fully automated installation, you should provide all the answers in the answer file. A UDF provides replacement settings for the settings specified in an answer file. A UDF can be used to configure unique settings, such as computer name, for each computer. You can use the Setup Manager Wizard to create answer files and UDFs.

You should not use a UDF only to automate the installation because this will not allow you automate the installation. Because a UDF is only a database file used to provide unique settings, you cannot automate the installation without an answer file.

You should not use an answer file only to automate the installation. Without a UDF, you would need to create a separate answer file for each target computer. This would require you to create 25 answer files, which is not the most efficient method to install Windows XP Professional on the 25 computers.

You cannot create and deploy an image of a computer running Windows XP Professional in this case because the 25 target computers require different configurations. Creating and deploying an image is a viable solution only when the target computers have the same hardware configurations as the reference computer.

You are your company’s desktop administrator. You plan to use Remote Installation Services (RIS) to deploy Windows XP Professional to desktop computers on your network.

 

You create a RIS image and place it on a RIS server. However, when users attempt to connect to the RIS server, they report that no images can be found. You must resolve this problem.

 

What should you do?

 

 

  1. Grant Allow – Full Control NTFS permission on the appropriate answer file to the Users group.
  2. Share the folder containing the RIS image, and grant Allow – Read share permission to the Users group.
  3. Grant Allow – Read and Read & Execute NTFS permission on the appropriate answer file to the Users group.
  4. Share the folder containing the RIS image, and grant Allow – Full Control share permission to the Users group.

 

 

 

 

Answer:
C. Grant Allow – Read and Read & Execute NTFS permission on the appropriate answer file to the Users group.

Tutorial:
You should grant Allow – Read and Read & Execute NTFS permission on the appropriate answer file to the Users group. You can restrict user access to specific images by setting NTFS file system permissions on answer files. Setting permissions on answer files allows you to determine which images a user can download. The default permissions (Read and Read & Execute) are the only permissions that the users require to use the answer file to install the image.

You should not grant Allow – Full Control NTFS permission on the appropriate answer file to the Users group. Granting Full Control permissions on the answer file grants more permissions than are necessary.

You should not share the folder containing the RIS image, and grant Allow – Read share permission to the Users group. During the RIS Setup process, you are prompted to specify the location of the Windows XP Professional source files that will create the initial image. This location can be a shared network folder or a compact disc. The scenario implies that this step has already been completed. If the folder had not been shared already, the Remote Installation Services Setup Wizard would not have completed.

You should not share the folder containing the RIS image, and grant Allow – Full Control share permission to the Users group. As stated in the paragraph above, the scenario implies that the shared folder has already been configured.

Remote Installation Services (RIS) provide a mechanism for computers on a Windows 2000 network to connect to a server running RIS during the initial boot phase and to remotely install Windows XP Professional. When using RIS, the user is sent a list of images that he or she has the correct permissions to install. If the user does not have the necessary permission on the answer file, no images are listed.

Unlike a standard over-the-network installation performed by running Winnt.exe, a RIS installation does not require users to know where the installation source files are stored or what information to supply during Setup. RIS supports the installation of Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional only. It does not support the remote installation of Windows 2000 Server. RIS does not support images that are created by third-party imaging tools.

To install an image by using RIS, users must have user rights to create computer accounts in Active Directory. The Active Directory administrator can grant user rights to create computer accounts anywhere in the domain or in a specific OU.
