Installation and Configuration
Now that you've planned for success, let's roll up our sleeves and install the thing. You need to know how to install, configure, and modify a primary site server. This is where you'll need to know when (and why) to use express versus custom installation. Prior to running the setup, you'll need to know how to configure the underlying NT Server to host the application.
You need the ability to install and configure SQL Server during the SMS setup. This means both a local SQL server and a remote one. You also need to know how to edit the SQL server information that SMS uses.
What if you need to shut down the SMS server during the install? Do you know how to restart the current installation? Reset it? Aha! How about removing SMS? Once you have the first server installed, onto the secondary site server! You need to know how to install this server from a CD or over the network.
Now that your servers are up, you need to configure the site system roles: component servers, logon points, distribution points, and client access points. Additionally, you need to be able to configure software metering servers and the SMS Administrator console.
This objective wraps up with your ability to configure a site hierarchy. You have to be able to configure site addresses, and add and configure senders (think Standard, Courier, and RAS). You'll also be tested on parent-child relationships. And what if you feel the urge to remove a site from the site hierarchy? Well, you may not feel the urge, but this exam will.
