Q:

You want to implement Active Directory on your Windows 2000 network. Your network consists of Windows 2000 Server computers, Windows 2000 Professional computers, Windows NT Workstation 4.0 computers, and Windows 98 computers. You want to achieve optimum functionality of all the client computers with Active Directory. What should you do?

A) Install the Directory Service Client on all of the Windows 98 computers. B) Upgrade all of the Windows 98 computers to Windows 2000 Professional
C) Upgrade all of the Windows NT Workstation 4.0 computers and Windows 98 computers to Windows 2000 Professional D) Nothing. Windows 2000 will automatically detect all client computers and optimize them to function with Active Directory.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Upgrade all of the Windows NT Workstation 4.0 computers and Windows 98 computers to Windows 2000 Professional

Explanation:

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.

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 & Explanation 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.

Q:

You are the administrator of a SQL Server 2000 computer. The server contains a database named FinanceData that is used by a client/server application. Each employee has a SQL Server login that the application uses to access the server.Your company hires a new employee named Andrew. You create a SQL Server login named Andrew. You also create a database user named Andrew in the database and grant the database user full permissions in the database.Whenever Andrew runs the client/server application, he receives the following error message: "Invalid object name." Andrew also reports that he cannot access the database by using the application.You need to ensure that Andrew can use the application. Which Transact-SQL statement should you execute?

A) EXEC sp_defaultdb 'Andrew','FinanceData' B) GRANT ALL ON FinanceData TO Andrew
C) EXEC sp_addlogin 'Andrew' D) EXEC sp_grantdbaccess 'FinanceData','Andrew'GOsp_addrolemember 'db_datareader','Andrew'
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) EXEC sp_defaultdb 'Andrew','FinanceData'

Explanation:

Error 208 produces the message 'Invalid object name' and occurs when an object that does not exist in the current database is referenced. If the object exists in another database, we must use the USE statement to explicitly switch the context to the correct database or we must qualify the object name with the database name. A third option is to use the sp_defaultdb stored procedure. This stored procedure is used to change the default database for a login. When a client connects with SQL Server, the default database defined for its login becomes the current database without an explicit USE statement. The default database can be defined when the login is added with
sp_addlogin. When executing sp_addlogin the master database is the default database if a database is not specified. In this scenario a SQL Server 2000 login and a user account has been created for Andrew and he has been given database access and the required permissions.

Q:

You are the administrator of eight SQL Server 2000 computers. You configure alerts on each server so that various problem conditions will be reported if they occur.You create 20 operators on one of the servers. You configure these operators by using the e-mail and pager contact information for the employees in your department. You configure the alerts on the server to send e-mail messages and pager messages to the appropriate operators.You need to configure the same 20 operators on the other seven servers. You want to do this with a minimum amount of administrative time.What should you do?

A) Use SQL Server Enterprise Manager to script all of the operators. Use SQL Query Analyzer to run the script on the other seven servers. B) Detach the msdb database from the first server. Copy the database to the other seven servers. Attach the database on all eight servers.
C) Use snapshot replication to replicate the msdb database from the first server to the other seven servers. D) Use SQL ServerEnterprise Manager on a single client computer to create the operators on each server.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Use SQL Server Enterprise Manager to script all of the operators. Use SQL Query Analyzer to run the script on the other seven servers.

Explanation:

Transact-SQL scripts can be used to create defined operators or alerts. Scripting all the
predefined operators and alerts and copying them to the servers if the same group of operators is responsible for responding to the same alerts on other servers can save time.
