1  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / Heres a good resource link on: June 18, 2002, 01:45:05 AM
Thanks for all your kind words on previous post


I found the documentation here the most useful. Use the search for anything your not sure about (keep drilling down) you'll find some great information if you keep flipping through the links and stay patient.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/advanced/help/

also an appology.

Some of my recent posts have been a bit, well, tense I guess.  It was just nerves, I perhapes could have handled them better.

Oh well, alls well that ends well!!

Now bring on Brazil ........ and then Active Directory!!!!

one last thing...

Did I mention RRAS was on the exam?
2  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / I took the beast today, heres my feedback on: June 17, 2002, 09:35:13 AM
1st I passed it!!

No pass grade was given but it felt very very close.  PHEW!

It is very hard.  The rumours are true!  I started at 10am finished at 1.30 ish, cant quite remember, 3.5hrs I think!!  which was all the time I was given for the questions!

They started hard and got longer and harder as your brain became more tired.  GITS!


My advice?

study RRAS more RRAS and then study RRAS.  In particular RRAS with DHCP interaction. If you can, drink lots of coffee!

Online 2000 server documentation and server documentation from technet was the most useful of all.  Especially all the troubleshooting sections.

Good luck to all of you and I might catch some of you in the AD forum (once Ive had a little rest!)

one last thing,

Forget brain dumps!

Honesly!  Im not being moral or judgemental but just believe me they wont help.  The question pool, I assume, is huge and changes frequently.

Take it easy

Fair point.  I wasnt having a pop at you as you reply frequently, more at the other members.

Anyway my post entitled ".....clear this up"

I mentioned my reasons as

A=i&iv
B=i
C=i
D=i&ii (forward and reverse respectively)

meaning which points and why I think that means they should be selected.

ie A should be selected because of points i and iv in the question and son on.  Any ideas?

Perhapes my shorthand left this unclear.

Anyway my exam is tommorow but I'm not too phased.  There are more important things in the world.  After all, England are in the 1/4 finals!

Cheers

Whenever I post a genuine technical query or puzzle only 1% of people who view reply.

I were to mention Id passed or failed an exam I would probabley get 50% views reply.

I thought the forum was to help us get the knowledge to pass exams to combine our interlect?

Dont get me wrong a little of "well done" and "there there beter luck next time" is ok but perhapes we should pay as much attention to the issus which get us through exams and then we wouldnt need so much "there, there"

Since this not a technical issue I guess I should expect many replies.

Thanks

A collegue gave me this question.  The summary of it is bellow

Clients are NT and 2000 and are configured for DHCP

For workgroup collaboration and document sharing, all client computers have file and print sharing services enabled

You take the following actions:-
 
i)Configure the DHCP server to always update client computer information in DNS

ii)Configure the DHCP server to discard forward lookups when the lease expires

iii)Configure the DHCP server to update DNS for client computers that do not support dynamic updates

iv)Configure the DHCP scope to configure the domain name for all DHCP client computers.

Which result or results do these actions produce? (Choose all that apply)

 
A.  All client computers are able to be located on the network by the network's fully qualified domain name
B.  A records for all client computers are automatically added to the DNS zone files
C.  PTR records for reverse name lookup for all client computers are automatically added to the DNS zone files
D.  A records and PTR records are automatically removed from the DNS zone files when the DHCP lease expires

He says A and D.

I think its all of them

A=i&iv
B=i
C=i
D=i&ii (forward and reverse respectively)

am I right?

7  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / is all that time necessary? on: June 13, 2002, 12:45:22 PM
Can anyone tell me if there are more questions on this exam than the other cores?

or are the questions long winded?

Do we need 4hrs???

Cheers

8  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / 4 hour exam!! on: June 13, 2002, 06:24:55 AM
Good grief!

Just booked in for net inf, not that confident but Ive been studying for ages and I guess I have to have a go sometime.

4 hrs I was told!!  Thats a bit rich!  The accelerated  was only 4 hrs and that counted for 4 modules!

I cant stare at a screen and concentrate for 4 hours my brain is far too feeble.

fingers crossed, study hard and pray for a miracle.  If I fail this one though thats it!  Ive had enough!  I got mcse nt and win 2000 pro and server and that will have to be enough cause Im sick of em now!!!

4 hrs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?HuhHuhHuhHuh
9  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / which is right? on: June 10, 2002, 02:03:09 PM
First Beckham then Lewis things are looking up in England!! Sorry about that.  

Anyway here's a puzzle

if a question asks about which subnet mask to use for x number of hosts on x number of subnets.  (No mention of predicted growth or any of that)

and one answer is closer on the number of hosts and another is closer on the number of subnets then which is right??

Cheers

I have an identical problem as does a collegue of mine.  I have been on the same journey as you and am now close to giving up.  I'm watching this thread daily as it is about my last chance!!  

Come on guys they must be some bright spark reading this who has done this before!!

11  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / DHCP confused on: April 26, 2002, 05:59:03 AM
Nice one!

Do you know how this system script works or where I can find some more info on it!

Also does system.mdb still exist with 2000 as some the previous posts think it doesnt and that all the info is now contained in DHCP.mdb??  does system.mdb and system.src only exist in NT?
12  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / DHCP confused on: April 22, 2002, 03:18:06 AM
Hi

I think it probabley is ot of date.  Ive just checked win2000 and .net magazines site and found some stuff on disaster recovery of dhcp that states system.mdb is not used in 2000 or NT4 with dhcp and is was used in 3.51.

Anyway the link I gave didnt work so Ive copied it.


=========================================

Moving a DHCP database to another server
Windows 2000 provides the DHCP console, which allows you to manage DHCP servers installed and running on a single DHCP server computer. However, the DHCP console does not allow you to move a database from one installed DHCP server to another server computer.

This topic provides details of how to move a database from from one server computer to another server computer, assuming the DHCP database and its backup directories are on default drive and path locations.

Backing up the DHCP server database (at the source server)
Complete the following procedures at the server computer being used as the source for the DHCP database:

Stop the DHCP server.
For more information, see To start or stop a DHCP server

Disable the DHCP Server service in the list of services.
This prevents the DHCP server from starting after the database has been transferred. To perform this task, use Computer Management and select the DHCP Server service from the list for it to be disabled.

For more information, see To enable or disable a service for a hardware profile

Copy the DHCP server directory tree, systemroot\System32\Dhcp, to a temporary location on the new (destination) DHCP server. For example, copy the directory tree to C:\Temp\System32\Dhcp.
Start the Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe) and go to the following subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCPServer

For more information, see To open Registry Editor

Save the specified key to a text file.
For more information, see To save a registry key

Delete the DHCP server database folder, %SystemRoot%\System32\Dhcp, at the source server.
Uninstall the DHCP server to remove it from this server.
For more information, see To remove or uninstall DHCP

 Note

Steps 6 and 7 are optional.
Restoring the DHCP server database (at the destination server)
Complete the following procedures at the server computer being used as the destination for the DHCP database:

If you have not already installed the DHCP server software, install it and then restart the server computer.
For more information, see To install a DHCP server

Stop the DHCP Server service.
For more information, see To start or stop a DHCP server

Rename the System.mdb file to System.src in the temporary folder, such as the C:\Temp\System32\Dhcp directory.
Copy the DHCP server directory tree from the temporary folder to systemroot\System32\Dhcp to replace the existing DHCP server directory.
Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe) and go to the following subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCPServer

For more information, see To open Registry Editor

Select the DHCPServer key (located under the Services key).
Restore the registry hive information from the file you saved in Step 5 of the previous section.
For more information, see To restore a registry key

In Restore Key, for File name specify the following:
systemroot\System32\Dhcp\Backup\Dhcpcfg

When prompted, click Yes.
After clicking Yes to the prompt to overwrite the existing registry entries, if you have problems completing the restore operation, retry the previous step.

Be sure that you are not attempting the restore using Registry Editor from a remote computer. Also, verify that this error was not caused by clicking Save Subtree As instead of Save Key as indicated in Step 5 in the previous section when saving registry information at the source server.

Exit Registry Editor.
Start the DHCP Server service.
Open the DHCP console and use Reconcile All Scopes to reconcile the DHCP server database to the restored information now merged into the Windows 2000 registry.
For more information, see To reconcile the DHCP database

 Note

For more information, see DHCP database files

=============================================

So do we think this is wrong then?

Cheers DD.

Hi Folks,

Im still not sold that the info is out of date.  The step rename system.mdb to system.src for 2000 is on microsoft.com.

copy this link to your browser too see

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/advanced/help/default.asp?url=/WINDOWS2000/en/advanced/help/sag_DHCP_tro_MovingDatabaseToNewServer.htm


 Ive seen it on loads of other pages for 2000 too.  non explain what system.src is for. Perhapes this information is used to create system.mdb somehow.

Ive just checked ms and your right dhcp.mdb is listed as the dhcp database!

so what is system.mdb? well I have now found this half explanation on ms2000 documentation .............

"The DHCP database tracks all attached database directories and files in the System.mdb file. If the database and backup directories are moved, the backup fails. It does so because it tries to back up the database from the old and new locations but cannot find the database file in the old location."

Does that mean anything to anyone? cause it doesnt to me!!

So now the question is I know DHCP.mdb is the 2000 dhcp database so what is system.mdb and system.src?Huh??




Also a transcender question has the step too as part of its answer explanation to a related question.
14  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / DHCP confused on: April 21, 2002, 04:05:23 PM
Hi All,

Quick one.  Part of the process of moving DHCP information from a server on one subnet to another is to rename the system.mdb to system.src.  Im trying to find out why.  Ive looked this up but cant find the solution.  Ive seen all the info on moving DHCP but non of it explains this step.  What is system.src?

Any Ideas Folks?

Cheers

15  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-216 / My brain hurts on: April 05, 2002, 03:25:39 AM
I opened a thread a while ago its the only dday one on page 2.  A good link and explanation of some of the stuff.  VLSM is still giving me brain ache now though and Ive read a lot!!  I think my brain is about as useful as silly putty sometimes.  People tell me it just clicks into place one day.  Im still waiting.

Take it easy
