D. This setting is only available on a Windows 2002 or 2000 Server PC and must be set by an administrator.
7. You're preparing a master disk image for the cloning and deployment of Windows XP Professional. Your plan is to use the SysPrep utility in combination with a disk cloning utility. When you configure the machine, you do so while logged on as the Administrator. You install applications, configure desktop shortcuts, and tailor the Start menu.
When you perform a small-scale test deployment, you discover that when users log on with their own network accounts, they don't see the tailoring that you performed. What can you do to fix this problem before you deploy Windows XP to the entire department? (Choose the best answer.)
A. Using the User Profiles control panel, copy the Administrator's user profile to the Default User profile.
B. Using the System control panel, copy the Administrator's user profile to the Default User profile.
C. Using the System control panel, copy the Administrator's user profile to the All Users profile.
D. Create a home directory on the network server.
8. A software vendor advises you that you must modify the access control list for a specific Registry key in order for that vendor's application to work properly under Windows XP. Which of the following Registry tools should you use to make the modification?
1. D. Tricky question, this. The statement means nothing because you can't publish an application to a computer; you can only publish applications to users. You can, however, assign applications to computers - or to users, as you choose. Review 'Windows Installer Service.'
2. D. Choice C isn't as good an answer, because whenever you have a choice between using a management console or editing a text file (or the Registry) directly, you should use the console for safety and reliability. Note that you'd use the Local Group Policy tool (GPEDIT.MSC) here, rather than a domain-based policy, because you only want to change the behavior for Lloyd's account. Review 'What roams, what doesn't.'
3. A and B. Both home folders and redirected folders permit users to keep documents on network servers without moving them across the wire unless users need them. Microsoft would prefer that you use folder redirection, which is a component of IntelliMirror, because it's transparent and makes use of the My Documents and My Pictures desktop elements. Review 'Folder redirection: An alternative to roaming profiles' and 'Home folders.'
4. B. One more fact to memorize. Review 'Mandatory profiles.'
5. B. Microsoft made a command decision to leave profiles in its Windows NT 4.0 location if a user upgrades to Windows XP Professional from NT. The idea is that one or more applications may expect to see profile data in the old location. Review 'User Profiles.'
6. A. If you clear the check box, then you're sure to have all your files on the local disk, but you can't be sure that they're all up-to-date. Choice B is almost valid but the check box isn't worded correctly (sorry, but the exam is nitpicky). Review 'Setting up offline files and folders.'
7. B. Choice B is the best answer. But it may not be perfect. For example, the Administrator's profile may contain some programs that others can't execute because of user rights issues. Review 'User Profiles.'
8. C. REGEDT32.EXE would be the correct answer for Windows 2000, but not XP! Microsoft finally got around to integrating REGEDT32's features into REGEDIT in Windows XP. The Registry Editor isn't a management console and so doesn't have the suffix MSC. Review 'A unified editing tool.'
Chapter 13: Dial-Up Networking and Remote Access
* Create a dial-up connection to connect to a remote access server
* Connect to computers by using a virtual private network (VPN) connection
* Connect to the Internet by using dial-up networking
* Configure and troubleshoot Internet Connection Sharing
* Configure, manage, and troubleshoot an Internet connection firewall
* Configure, manage, and troubleshoot remote desktop and remote assistance
Setting up a dial-up connection was always a bit of a headache in Windows NT Workstation 4.0. Windows 98 handled the task more intuitively, but even there, creating a 'DUN connectoid' was still fraught with opportunity for error and confusion. Even the terminology was weird (whoever came up with the word 'connectoid'?).
Microsoft has revamped the dial-up networking user interface in Windows XP in an effort to make creating a connection more straightforward. For example, dial-up connections now live in the same folder as LAN and WAN connections, reinforcing the concept that a modem works just like a slow network adapter. The Make New Connection Wizard is significantly more capable, versatile, and (therefore) useful. You can create secure computer-to-computer dial-up links by using the Internet as a communications medium. You can set up a computer so that it shares its Internet connection with other connected computers. Microsoft now provides a basic firewall product, recognizing the popularity of always-on broadband connections. And the Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop features borrow technology from Terminal Server to ease support chores.
