Q:

You are an administrator of a SQL Server 2000 computer. The server contains a database that stores inventory data. Another database administrator has created a number of scheduled jobs to maintain the inventory database. Each weeknight the following jobs occur.


- A BULK INSERT job imports data at 10:00 P.M
- Indexes are rebuilt at 10:15 P.M
- Data integrity checks are performed at 10:30 P.M
- A differential backup is performed at 10:45 P.M
- A DBCC SHRINKDATABASE job runs at 11:00 P.M.


You notice that the final job often fails and returns the following error message: "Server: Msg 3140, Level 16, State 3. Could not adjust the space allocation for file  'inventory_data'."You need to ensure that the final job runs without errors.

What should you do?

A) Modify the DBCC SHRINKDATABASE job so that it uses DBCC SHRINKFILE statement to shrink each file individually. B) Create a new DBCC SHRINKFILE job to shrink the inventory_data file. Schedule the new job to run at the same time as the DBCC SHRINKDATABASE job.
C) Increase the time between the differential backup and the DBCC SHRINKDATABASE job. D) Increase the time between the data integrity checks and the differential backup.

Answer:   C) Increase the time between the differential backup and the DBCC SHRINKDATABASE job.

Explanation:

The DBCC SHRINKDATABSE cannot be executed until the previous job step, the differential backup, has been completed. We should increase the time between these two job steps, or even better configure the last job step to run only after the differential backup has been completed.

 

Note: The DBCC SHRINKDATABASE statement shrinks data files on a per-file basis but shrinks log files as if all the log files existed in one contiguous log pool. The target size for the data and log files cannot be smaller than the minimum size of a file that was specified when the file was originally created, or the last explicit size set with a file size changing operation such as the ALTER DATABASE statement with the MODIFY FILE option or the DBCC SHRINKFILE statement.

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Cause the computer to dual boot between Windows 2000 and the previously installed operating system

Explanation:

When windows 2000 is installed in the same folder as the other operating system, Windows 2000 will delete the previously installed operating system. When Windows 2000 is installed in a different folder than the other operating system, it will automatically configure the computer to dual boot between Windows 2000 and the previously installed operating system.

To achieve optimum functionality of the client computers, you must upgrade all of them to Windows 2000. Upgrading some of them and/or installing the Directory Service Client will gain some functionality, but the question specifically states that "optimum functionality" is the required result.
