SubObjective: Plan a Host Name Resolution Strategy
Single Answer Multiple Choice

 

You are the network administrator for Neeley Industries. The network contains Windows XP Professional, Windows 2000 Professional, and Windows Server 2003 computers. You have two Windows 2003 domain controllers named NIDC1 and NIDC2 that are responsible for a single domain named neeleyind.com. Your primary DNS server is installed on a domain controller named NIDC1.neeleyind.com. You have one secondary DNS server installed on a member server named NISrv2.neeleyind.com.

 

You want to ensure that updates can be made to any server. You also want to optimize and simplify the management of DNS replications and zone transfers.

 

A. Promote NISrv2.neeleyind.com to a domain controller.
B. On NIDC1.neeleyind.com, add NISrv2.neeleyind.com to the notify list.
C. On NIDC1.neeleyind.com, set the Time to Live (TTL) value in the SOA record on to a higher value.
D. Remove the DNS Server service from NISrv2.neeleyind.com. Install the DNS Server service on NIDC2.neeleyind.com. Convert the zone hosted by NIDC1.neeleyind.com to an Active Directory-integrated zone.

 

Answer:
D. Remove the DNS Server service from NISrv2.neeleyind.com. Install the DNS Server service on NIDC2.neeleyind.com. Convert the zone hosted by NIDC1.neeleyind.com to an Active Directory-integrated zone.

 

Tutorial:
You should remove the DNS Server service from NISrv2.neeleyind.com. Then, you should install the DNS Server service on NIDC2.neeleyind.com. Finally, you should convert the zone hosted by NIDC1.neeleyind.com to an Active Directory-integrated zone. Converting the zone hosted by NIDC1.neeleyind.com to an Active Directory integrated zone ensures that updates can be made to any server. In addition, using this zone type, zone transfers occur automatically as part of Active Directory replication.

 

You should not promote NISrv2.neeleyind.com to a domain controller. You already have another domain controller that is used as part of your DNS structure. This solution does not change the zone type, which is necessary to achieve your goals.

 

You should not add NISrv2.neeleyind.com to the notify list on NIDC1.neeleyind.com. This only ensures that NIDC1.neeleyind.com contacts NISrv2.neeleyind.com when changes are made to the DNS database. It does not change the zone type, which is necessary to achieve your goals.

 

You should not set the Time to Live (TTL) value in the SOA (start of authority) record on NIDC1.neeleyind.com to a higher value. This setting only affects the amount of time a server can cache information for a zone.

These questions are derived from the Self Test Software Practice Test for Microsoft Exam #70-293: Planning and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure.
