Single answer, multiple-choice
You are a network administrator for your company. The company’s network consists of a single Active Directory domain. All servers run Windows Server 2003, and all client computers run Windows XP Professional.
The network contains three file servers. Each of the file servers is equipped with a locally attached tape drive. On each file server, you create a backup job that will back up user data. All three jobs are configured to run under the security context of a domain user account named BkpAcct. You must assign the minimum privileges to BkpAcct that are necessary to run the backup jobs. To which group should you add the BkpAcct account?
- The local Backup Operators group on each file server.
- The local Server Operators group on each file server.
- The domain local Backup Operators group.
- The domain local Server Operators group.
A. The local Backup Operators group on each file server.
When you are creating a backup job that will run in accordance with a specified schedule, you must specify a user account that the job will use to run. For the job to run successfully, that account must be assigned a sufficient level of authority. In this scenario, to enable the backup jobs to run on the file servers under the security context of the BkpAcct domain user account, you should add that account to the local Backup Operators group on each file server.
The domain local Backup Operators and Server Operators groups exist only on domain controllers; they are not available and do not have any authority on member servers. On domain controllers, both groups are assigned the right to perform backups. There is no local Server Operators group on member servers.
