3. Mike is the Windows 2000 administrator for Barron Automotive group. His network has four Windows NT 4.0 domain controllers, two Windows NT 4.0 member servers, and 34 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Mike has recently added two Windows 2000 member servers, and wants to install CA on one of the member servers. His assistant, Randy, doesn't think Mike can install and configure a CA in the current environment because of the lack of AD. Can Mike install the CA under these circumstances?

  1. Yes. Windows 2000 installs AD on the local machine as part of the CA installation.

  2. Yes. AD is not required for a stand-alone CA.

  3. No. AD is required to be installed CA on any Windows 2000 machine.

5. Carla is a Windows 2000 network administrator. Her network has three Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, four Windows 2000 member servers, and 675 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Her network is subnetted into three segments. Carla has installed and configured a central CA for company-wide usage.

  1. Allow the research division to create its own CA.

  2. Allow the research division to create a subordinate CA.

  3. Don't allow the research division to create a subordinate CA because only one CA per company can exist.

6. Mark is the Windows 2000 network administrator for Harper Academy, and his network has three segments. In each segment, there are four Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, three Windows 2000 member servers, and at least 615 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. At the headquarters, Mark has installed a Root CA, and each site has its Subordinate CA. Mark realizes that the certificate for the Root CA will expire, and he wonders when the Subordinate CAs' certificate will expire. When will the Subordinate CA expire?

  1. Subordinate CAs will expire one year after the Root CA.

  2. Subordinate CAs will expire before the Root CA.

  3. Subordinate CAs will expire on the same date as the Root CA because their certificate originated from this root.

  4. This question is incorrect because Root CA's certificates will not expire.

7. Henry is the Windows 2000 network administrator with a network consisting of three Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, two Windows 2000 member servers, 129 Windows 2000 Professional workstations, and one Windows NT 4.0 member server that has IIS and Certificate Server 1.0. Henry finally decides to upgrade the member server to Windows 2000. At the end of the upgrade process, Henry needs to upgrade the Certificate Server 1.0—but Henry cannot find Certificate Server 1.0 to upgrade. What is the problem?

  1. The Windows 2000 installation process removes Certificate Server 1.0 because it is not compliant with Windows 2000.

  2. The Windows 2000 installation process removes Certificate Server because this is a member server.

  3. The Windows 2000 installation process automatically adds Certificate Server 2.0, but removes Certificate Server 1.0.

  4. The Windows 2000 installation process automatically upgrades Certificate Server 1.0 to Certificate Server 2.0.
