1  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / Command Line "Stuff" on: November 14, 2005, 10:11:06 AM
While reading the MS Press 70-290 book, I've noticed that they reference a lot of command line especially when it comes to users and groups.

Is it necessary to understand these commands up one side and down the other? Or just a general understanding of what the commands do sufficient for the test?

2  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows XP exams / Passed 70-270 on: November 12, 2005, 03:25:37 PM
My next step is going towards the 2003 Server (70-290) test. I've start reading the MS Press book and find it somewhat of a hard read due to lack of pictures and examples that help explain the material. Sometimes I need to look at a picture to get the full benifit of what's going on or I find myself looking at several resources.

I plan on reading through it and then going back and doing the labs to refresh myself. I'll finish up with Transcenders and a few online study guides.

I'm looking to sit the test by the end of the year. Which gives me abournd 5-6 weeks of preparation.

Does anyone know where I could get a good online command reference for Novel operating systems?

Thanks in Advance.
4  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / Password Protecting a Folder on: October 27, 2005, 12:09:00 PM
Here's what I would do...

Create a group with the user accounts of the people you wish to access the data.

Share the folder and place the user group you created at the only group with access and give them Full Control on the shared permissions.

Next, On the NTFS permissions, place only the group you wish to have access to the folder and what type of access they need to have. This will tighten security left open by the shared folder permissions.

This should control who accesses what in the shared folder. If you have any further questions, let me know. I was probably very vague in the step by step, but you sound like you should be able to figure it just needed a little push.

I'm not sure if you will be able to place an actual password on the folder, however with a combination of NTFS permissions and share permissions, you should be able to setup the type of security you are looking for.

Is your server in a domain?
6  CompTIA / Network+ / MCDST or not on: October 24, 2005, 11:02:28 AM
I'd probably go ahead with Net+. To pass any of the Microsoft tests, you need to have a very strong foundation in TCP/IP networks.

I suggest that everyone new to the IT industry start out with A+ and Net+, which provide strong building blocks for any certification path you may choose.
7  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / Taking the 70-290 on: October 16, 2005, 07:53:06 PM
I have training in 2000 server and I am finding it fairly easy to adapt to newer concepts in the 2003 version of server. Hopefully your experience with 2000 server will carry over to 2003.

I'd recommend using 2 sources for reading. I usually get a really in depth book such as one from MS Press or Sybex. As well as, getting a book that isn't so in depth, such as Mike Meyer's passport books or Exam Cram books.

Go to and search for books on the subject and read the reviews to find exactly what you want.

Just remember, not every technical book is perfect and just because one person says the book is horrible, doesn't mean it really is horrible.

Also, you will find a lot of resources on the web relating to the 70-290 other words...just "google" it.
8  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows XP exams / Writing my 70-270 tomorrow on: October 12, 2005, 12:38:40 AM
Yes, there will probably be a few questions regarding service pack 2 as I had some when I sat the test about a week ago. They will be easy to spot out and if you have had decent experience with SP2 you should be able to answer the questions fairly easy.

Also, make sure you have a strong foundation in how a TCP/IP network operates. If you don't, you are surely doomed.

If encryption and remote access are your 2 weak spots. I'd make sure I reviewed as much material as I possibly could before I sat the exam tomorrow.

Try out this material and maybe it can explain it cleary for you.

Remote Access

9  CompTIA / A+ forum / OS Technologies on: October 09, 2005, 10:52:45 PM
I had never seen NT in action either, when I went to take my exam around 3 years ago. I just understood what my books told me about NT and that was enough for me to pass the OS exam.

I wouldn't worry to much about Me either, just know what makes it different from the other OSs.
10  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows XP exams / Passed 70-270 on: October 07, 2005, 04:14:07 PM
Passed 70-270 today. Score of 936.

A lot more Windows Firewall than I expected, but all is well!

Let's move on to server now!
11  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows XP exams / Microsoft MVP on: October 02, 2005, 07:39:22 PM
While looking at references on the Microsoft website, I've noticed several people noted as being a Microsoft MVP. Any care to explain this?

It is a cert or an award handed down by Microsoft?
12  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows XP exams / Vue vs Prometric on: October 02, 2005, 02:57:28 PM
In the past, I've always done my certifications via Prometric, but now I only have a Vue testing center available in my area.

Is there a difference between the two?
13  CompTIA / A+ forum / PC weird on: September 27, 2005, 10:13:40 AM
I believe there is still a chance of hardware problem. Since the system reboots randomly, I'd check out the power supply. Power supply might not be able to hold the load generated by the computer system.

Also, if you have a spare modem, I'd pop it in the system and give that a try. I've seen modems cause a system not to even post before. Modem failure could be the cause of the issue you are facing.
14  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows XP exams / User Groups on: September 27, 2005, 10:06:06 AM
I'm in the process of wrapping up my studies for the 70-270 exam. Everything is virtually clear and I expect to exam within the next 2 weeks. With that being said, I need a little bit of polish on the area of user groups.

Basically, I'm looking for a reference that explains the difference between the Administrators, Power Users, and Users group. Along with other special groups such as Backup Operators, etc.

Anyone got something they can pull out of the hat?
