Indicate whether the statement is true or false. ____ 1. A snapshot is a collection of files, usually consisting of a configuration file and one or more files representing hard disks
____ 2. A guest operating system is an OS running in a virtual machine on a host computer
____ 3. You can upgrade a Windows Server 2000 server to Windows Server 2008 so long as you meet the hardware requirements.
____ 4. The netsh command can be used to configure network interfaces from the command line.
____ 5. You can upgrade to Windows Server 2008 Core installation so long as you’re running Windows Server 2003 with the latest Microsoft patches installed.
Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. ____ 6. Windows Server 2008 is activated automatically after several days. However, if it can’t be activated, how many days do you have to activate Windows Server 2008 before you can no longer log on?
____ 7. Last Friday, your organization deployed a brand new Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008. To simplify administrative tasks and to prevent downtime, your organization makes use of monitoring software that continually tests connectivity. This monitoring software then sends text messages to a specific group of administrators if it should detect that a server is unreachable for any reason.
On Monday, when the Server Core’s IP address was placed into the monitoring software, the group of administrators received a text almost immediately telling them that the Server Core machine was unreachable. The administrator on-call says that on Friday, he was able to use the ping command successfully from the Server Core box to a well known internet address, as well as several servers on the local network. On Monday, he attempts to ping the Server Core installation from his workstation for the first time and does not receive a response.
Assuming that the Server Core installation is using default settings, what is most likely the issue?
Over the weekend, Windows Update ran and downloaded a driver update for the ethernet card without disabling the original driver, causing it to malfunction. Using the command waus.exe /purge /recent should fix the issue.
The Server Core machine has the TCP/IP protocol enabled on the outgoing protocol list for the configured network interface, but not for the incoming list. It must be added in the interface’s Properties dialog box.
The network cable installed for the server has failed over the weekend, and should be replaced to restore normal network connectivity.
Windows Server 2008’s firewall is blocking ICMP Echo Request packets by default. To fix the issue, you must type netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8
____ 8. Which command below can be used to add your Server Core system as a domain member?
____ 9. Select below a valid requirement for the installation of Hyper-V: ____.
Windows Server 2008 Datacenter must be installed to use Hyper-V
Your CPU must support virtualization extensions
You require a Hyper-V license key
You must have at least 128 MB of RAM installed
____ 10. You’re in charge of a high-end, enterprise class server running Windows Server 2008 Datacenter edition. Lately you’ve noticed that the server’s memory utilization is too high, so you’ve decided to add an additional few sticks of RAM into the server’s free slots. To reduce downtime, you should check if your server supports ____.
external memory slot controllers
____ 11. After installation Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition, you have attempted to activate Windows. Unfortunately, the activation process fails. Because you are using a Multiple Activation Key (MAK), what must you do first before you can activate Windows Server 2008?
Contact Microsoft Support to receive a valid activation key, because MAKs are only used for obtaining licenses through Microsoft, not activating servers.
You must install a special MAK license file to C:\Windows\licenses\w2k8-std
You must change your product key to match the MAK key given, then perform the activation.
Renew your subscription to Microsoft’s Key Licensing Services and re-validate the key
____ 16. Which networking protocol is installed by default in Windows Server 2008?

30. If you don’t choose “Drive Options (advanced)” during install, and simply select a disk and click next, Windows Server 2008 uses the entire disk and formats it as ____________________ by default.
31. Almost immediately after an OS is released, bugs and security vulnerabilities are found and fixed. These fixes, normally released as ____________________, can be installed through the Windows Update procedure.
____ 32. A layer of software between hardware and OSs that allows multiple OSs or multiple instances of the same OS to share physical hardware resources
____ 33. Software updates normally intended to fix security vulnerabilities and software bugs
____ 34. A Windows Server 2008 feature in Enterprise and Datacenter editions in which a group of servers is connected by both cabling and software; if one server fails, another takes over to provide services
