Managing, Configuring, and Troubleshooting Storage Use

Windows 2000 allows you to create, store, and manage user profiles. You also have to configure the disks and volumes that these profiles (and other data) are stored on, the data-compression rate, and disk quotas for your favorite users. This quiz also tackles recovering from disk failures. Ready to test your knowledge on this Windows 2000 Server exam objective?

  1. You are the network administrator for a Windows 2000 domain. Your domain consists of two Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, two Windows 2000 Servers acting as member servers, and 432 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Charlie, an accountant within your company, calls you and tells you he is not happy with his new computer. It appears that he can log on to the network and access his email, data, and printers; but his shortcuts, colors, and customized Start Menu are missing from his new computer. What is the probable cause of the problem?

    1. Charlie has logged in to the local machine, not the network.
    2. Charlie's profile on the old computer was corrupt.
    3. Charlie's profile on the old computer was a local rather than a roaming profile.
    4. Charlie's profile on the old computer was a mandatory rather than a roaming profile.

  3. George is the network administrator for a small office supply company. His network consists of two Windows 2000 Servers—one is a domain controller and the other is a member server. George wants to edit the BOOT.INI on the member server, but cannot remember where it is located. Where is the BOOT.INI located and what does this file do?

    1. BOOT.INI is located on the Boot partition; it is responsible for loading NTOSKRNL.
    2. BOOT.INI is located on the System partition; it is responsible for identifying the physical location of the operating system files.
    3. BOOT.INI is located on the System partition; it is responsible for loading the OS files.
    4. The BOOT.INI is always located at the root of the C: partition; it allows NTOSKRNL to access the OS files.

  4. Erica is the network administrator for Bradford Enterprises. Her network consists of five Windows 2000 Servers, three of which are domain controllers. Four of the Windows 2000 Servers have identical hardware: 1Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, and RAID-5 controllers with eight 80GB hard drives. The fifth server is a simple file server for the marketing department's old files and graphic design literature. This server has a 733Mhz processor, 512MB of RAM, and one 80GB hard drive. The Marketing department has filled the 80GB hard drive to 65GB, and is planning for more graphic-intensive work in the near future. Erica has decided to add a second 100GB drive. After adding the drive, she used disk-imaging software to move the contents of the older drive to the newer one because it has faster access time. Now, however, she cannot boot into Windows 2000. Both of the hard drives are SCSI, and she does have the SCSI BIOS enabled. She suspects that the BOOT.INI is pointing to the wrong drive. Which value in the BOOT.INI points to the physical disk in Erica's situation?

    1. multi

    2. scsi

    3. rdisk

    4. disk

    Answer

  5. Ralph is the network administrator for Stevenson Enterprises, Inc. His network consists of three Windows 2000 Servers, two of which are domain controllers. On the member server, he has added a new 100GB drive; and he has partitioned the drive with one primary partition of 50GB, one extended partition of 25GB, and one logical partition of 10GB. According to Disk Manager, he still has 25GB of free space on the new drive, but he cannot create a new extended partition. Why not?

    1. Ralph cannot create a new extended partition because he is limited to one per basic disk.
    2. Ralph cannot create a new extended partition because he has not used all of the space within the existing extended partition.
    3. Ralph cannot create a new extended partition because this is the secondary drive in the server. Secondary drives are allowed only one extended partition.
    4. Ralph cannot create a new extended partition because he must first "Commit Changes" on the current extended partition.

  6. Roberta is the network administrator for a small financial company in Nashville, Tennessee. Her network consists of two Windows 2000 Servers, one is a domain controller and the other is a member server. Both have the same hardware: 1.1Ghz processors, 1GB of RAM, and a RAID-5 controller with six SCSI hard drives. The member server is now also being used as a repository for paper documents that are scanned and saved to a database. Because of the disk space needed for the scanned images, Roberta added three hard drives: a 100GB hard drive, an 80GB hard drive, and a 60GB hard drive. She wants to create a Stripe Set with Parity through Windows 2000 Server's Disk Management tool. What is the largest Stripe Set with Parity she can create?

    1. She cannot create a Stripe Set with Parity because the drives must be equal in size.
    2. 100GB

    3. 60GB

    4. 180GB

  7. You are a consultant for a manufacturing firm. This firm has hired you to find a method to create additional disk space without disrupting its current disk configuration and spending no additional monies. It has configured a Windows 2000 Server with eight 100GB drives. Each drive has been configured to participate in a RAID-5 set with 80GB each. The primary goal is to manipulate the drives to have an additional volume for a large, read-only database. What solution can you offer this firm?

    1. Create a new RAID-5 set utilizing all of the 100GB drives.
    2. Create a Volume Set from the remaining 20GB on each drive.
    3. Create a Spanned Volume from the remaining 20GB on each drive.
    4. There's nothing that can be done without reformatting the drives because of the current Stripe Set with Parity does not allow additional volumes.
