These questions are based on 840: IBM Lotus Notes Domino 8: Configuring Domino Web Servers

A Self Test Software Practice Test

Objective: Administration.
Sub-objective: Enable Internet configurations.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You are configuring the Lotus Domino server to use Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) as a front-end server. The Lotus Domino server is located behind the firewall; you are placing the IIS server outside the firewall. Several remote client computers will access the Lotus Domino applications. To support this configuration, you must install the IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) 4.0.3 plug-in. Where should you install this plug-in?

A. On the front-end server.
B. On the front-end and the back-end servers.
C. On the client computers.
D. On the back-end servers and the client computers.

Answer:
A

Tutorial:
Installing the plug-in on the front-end server option is correct. You should install the plug-in on the front-end server, which is the Microsoft IIS server. This plug-in will relay requests from the front-end server to the back-end server over HTTP. The plug-in allows the front-end server to recognize HTTP requests for Domino applications. The front-end server passes the request to the Domino server. After the Domino server processes the request, it sends the reply to the plug-in. The front-end server sends the response to the user. The WAS 4.0.3 or later plug-in works with IBM HTTP Servers (IHS) and IIS servers that are configured as front-end servers.

All other options are incorrect. WAS 4.0.3 or later plug-in must be installed on the front-end server — which is the IIS server in this scenario — to support this configuration.

Objective: Administration.
Sub-objective: Rules/substitution rules.

Single answer, multiple-choice

In which situation will a Substitution rule automatically append "/*" in the URL pattern?

A. When more than one substitute URL has been specified.
B. When no wildcard character has been specified in the URL pattern.
C. When no substitute URL pattern has been specified.
D. When a Redirection rule has been created.

Answer:
B

Tutorial:
When no wildcard character has been specified in the URL pattern, a Substitution rule will append "/*" to the URL pattern when storing it in its internal table. A Substitution rule is mainly used to replace part of the URL with an easily recognizable string. You can substitute complex URLs with easy-to-remember URLs, or you can redirect a Web site to use a new directory for referencing files. At least one wildcard must be specified in a Substitution rule. The wildcard is defined as "/*" in the pattern.

All the other options are incorrect.

Objective: Install and configure.
Sub-objective: Configure LDAP search filters.

Single answer, multiple-choice

If you perform an LDAP search without specifying a search base, how does the LDAP service execute this search?

A. The Extended Directory Catalogs are always searched first.
B. The LDAP service randomly selects directories for the search.
C. The Domino Directories or Extended Directory Catalogs are searched according to the specified search order.
D. The LDAP service uses a referral.

Answer:
C

Tutorial:
If you perform an LDAP search without specifying a search base, the LDAP server searches the Domino Directories or Extended Directory Catalogs according to the specified search order. A search base is a distinguished name that defines the directory location or directory tree as the beginning search point. If no search base is defined, the Domino Directories or Extended Directory Catalogs are searched in the specified search order. If a search base is defined, then only the specified directories are searched.

The Extended Directory Catalogs are not always searched first unless it is defined first in the search order and a search base is not used.

The LDAP service does not select random directories for search. The order for search is determined by whether a user defines a search base.

The LDAP service does not use a referral. If a search base is not used, then LDAP services does not return a referral as a response to the user.

You created a custom error message and stored it in the ADB.NSF database hosted on a Web server. When users connect to ADB.NSF and complete a task, the custom error message is displayed. When users connect to the BDB.NSF database and complete a specific task, the custom error message is not displayed. Which of the following is the most likely reason?

A. The server custom error messages are overriding the database specific custom error message.
B. Anonymous access is not enabled on the BDB.NSF.
C. The custom error message can be applied only to the non-database files.
D. The custom error message is specific to the database in which it is defined.

Answer:
D

Tutorial:
The option stating that the custom error message is specific to the database in which it is defined is correct. When you define a custom error message in a database, it applies only to that database. The custom error message that is defined for a database overrides the Web site custom error message. This, in turn, overrides the server-specific custom error message.

A custom error message can be used for failed authentication, a failed attempt to access a database when the user does not have access to a database, Internet password expiration and an attempt to change Internet password when it has not been enabled. You cannot use custom error messages with non-database files.

The server-specific custom messages do not override the database-specific custom messages. The database-specific custom messages override the server-specific custom messages.

It is not necessary for Anonymous access to be enabled on the BDB.NSF database. Anonymous access is not related to the custom messages.

The custom-specific error messages cannot be applied only to the non-database files. The custom-specific error messages can be applied only to the database files, which are .NSF files.

Objective: Security.
Sub-objective: CA process/issuing certificates through the CA process.

Single answer, multiple-choice

You are the Domino administrator of your company. You want to register users by using Domino Web Administrator. What should you do to ensure you are able to perform this task?

A. Configure the user-registration preferences in the Domino Administrator.
B. Install and configure a Domino server-based Certification Authority (CA).
C. Configure the user-registration preferences in the Domino Web Administrator.
D. Obtain an Internet certificate from a third-party Internet Certification Authority (CA).

Answer:
B

Tutorial:
You should install and configure a Domino server-based CA. You must have a Domino server-based CA in place to be able to register users by using Domino Web Administrator. To register users through Web Administrator, the Web Administrator and the server on which the Web Administrator database is located must be listed as a Registration Authority (RA) for that certifier.

You should not configure the user-registration preferences in the Domino Administrator or in the Domino Web Administrator. The user-administration preferences, which you set from File — Preferences — Administration Preferences, are not applicable to the Web user registration. Therefore, the preferences you configure in Administration Preferences are applicable only to the users are registered through Domino Administrator. These settings, when configured, do not apply to the Web administrator. When you register users with Web Administrator, only the registration settings that are configured using policies or through the Domino server-based CA apply. Also, you will not be able to register users using Web Administrator unless you have a Domino server-based CA in place.

You should not obtain an Internet certificate from a third-party Internet CA because this would not allow you to register users by using Domino Web Administrator. To perform user registration by using Domino Web Administrator, a Domino server-based CA in required. You can use an Internet certificate that you acquired from a third party for Internet-style (S/MIME) mail.
