  14. You are the network administrator for bcdtrain.com. The network has recently been upgraded to Microsoft Windows Server 2003. Client computers have been upgraded to Microsoft Windows XP Professional.

    A new Domain Name System (DNS) server, DNS-01, has been added to the network. This server is configured as the primary DNS server for the bcdtrain.com domain. There is an existing legacy UNIX server on the network, DNS-02, that you configure as a secondary DNS server. You determine that this server is running a version of BIND older than 4.9.4.

    You soon discover that DNS-02 is not receiving zone transfers from DNS-01.

    Host (A)

    Alias (CNAME)

    Service Location (SRV)

    Well Known Service (WKS)

    You decide to change SRV02 to use Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) port 1021 as the control port for FTP.

    You need to ensure that the port is defined correctly in DNS.

    Which resource record should you update?

    bull.jpg

    A.

  16. You are the network administrator for your company. All servers are running Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

    The network consists of several subnets. All clients are WINS-enabled and capable of updating their records dynamically. Each of the subnets has its own WINS server. One of the subnets contains two UNIX servers. Hosts on the local subnet can communicate with the UNIX servers; however, hosts on other subnets are unsuccessful. Clients can resolve NetBIOS names for hosts on other subnets.

    Clients on all subnets need to be able to resolve the NetBIOS names of the UNIX servers.

    What should you do?

    bull.jpg

    A.

    Configure static mappings for the non-WINS clients.

    bull.jpg

    B.

    Install a WINS proxy on each subnet that does not have a local WINS server.
