Multiple Answer Multiple Choice

 

You are the network administrator for Quota, Inc. The company’s network consists of a single Active Directory domain named quotainc.com. All servers run Windows Server 2003. The forest operates in Windows Server 2003 mode.

 

Quota, Inc. recently acquired a small company named Smithfield Apparel. Smithfield Apparel’s network consists of a separate Active Directory forest and contains a domain named smithfieldap.com. The domain operates in Windows 2000 native mode.

 

You must design an operation that accomplishes the following two goals:

 

 

  1. Moves selected user accounts from smithfieldap.com to quotainc.com.
  2. Allows attributes on the moved user accounts to be modified during the move operation.

 

Which two methods could you use to achieve the required goals? (Choose two. Each correct answer presents a unique solution.)

 

 

  1. Use csvde in default mode on the source domain and csvde -i on the target domain to perform the move operation.
  2. Use csvde -i on the source domain and csvde in default mode on the target domain to perform the move operation.
  3. Use ldifde in default mode on the source domain and ldifde -i on the target domain to perform the move operation.
  4. Use ldifde -i on the source domain and ldifde in default mode on the target domain to perform the move operation.
  5. Use the dsget user command on the source domain and the dsadd command on the target domain to perform the move operation.
  6. Use the dsadd user command on the source domain and the dsget command on the target domain to perform the move operation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer:
A. Use csvde in default mode on the source domain and csvde -i on the target domain to perform the move operation.
C. Use ldifde in default mode on the source domain and ldifde -i on the target domain to perform the move operation.

Tutorial:
You should use one of the two following methods to perform this operation:

You can use csvde in default mode (export) on the source domain and csvde -i on the target domain to perform the move operation. Csvde can be used to import and export bulk data to/from Active Directory using files that store data in the comma-separated value (CSV) format. You can export users from Active Directory into a comma-separated file, examine the file in a spreadsheet, make changes, and import those users into the target directory.

You can also use the LDAP Data Interchange Format Directory Synchronization Tool (Ldifde) in default mode on the source domain and ldifde -i on the target domain to perform the move operation. This utility is appropriate for directory-to-directory bulk import operations. Ldifde runs in export mode by default. Modifications can be made during the operation by following the changetype command with one of the following: add, modify, or delete.

You should not use the csvde -i command on the source domain and csvde in default mode on the target domain to perform the move operation. The -i switch indicates an import for the source directory, which is incorrect. Additionally, the default mode indicates an export for the target directory.

You should not use ldifde -i on the source domain to perform the move operation. The ldifde -i command runs the utility in import mode. You should run ldifde in export mode on the source domain and ldifde -i on the target domain to perform this operation.

You should not use the dsget user command on the source domain and the dsadd command on the target domain to perform the move operation. The Directory Service command-line tool allows objects in Active Directory to be created, deleted, and managed from the command prompt. Objects can also be modified during import or export operations. However, this command is more appropriate for single add operations and would require additional scripting for bulk operations.

You should not use the dsadd user command on the source domain and the dsget command on the target domain to perform the move operation for this same reason. Additionally, the dsadd command should be used on the target domain.
