Test Questions

Danimal asked
I am helping a friend of mine with a homework assignment.

Any usable information to help answer these questions will be awarded points....I'll open extra questions to make sure all contributors get points....

So...here are the questions:

If two NICs have the same address and both NICs are active, what happens
and why?

2. What are the 3 elements through which Win 2000 network communication is

3. What are the 3 basic functions of a domain?

4. Before you create a security template, you need to develop a plan to
match your security needs. List five questions you should address in
determining these security needs.

5. Describe two situations where you might use Windows 2000 Server as a
standalone server.

6. Why are basic disks incorporated in Win 2000?
Watch Question

1 - Both would cease communication - as this is an invalid configuration.

2 - Do you mean - NIC (Card), Protocol (Network Language) and Media(Cable) - or is this question wanting a bit more?

3 - Depends what you mean by a function - A domain is a logical organisation of machines, usually (but not limited to) networks of more than 10 machines, one of which must be a domain controller (NT SVR or 2000 SVR installed as a Domain Controller for example)

i) It provides - Centralised administration and management - This incorporates many aspects - security, back-ups...etc.
- Lower Total cost of ownership for larger networks (primarily because of above!)
- Improved scalability

4) erm...

i) Do I need any?
ii) Who needs what level?
iii) What technologies can I use to secure - eg NT/2000 security, encryption, 3rd party etc
iv) What if it all goes wrong - can I always access other files - eg if someone leaves
v) How will I audit?


i)When you don't want the server to be involved in Domain authentication.
ii) When you want to have a server moving from Domain to Domain on a regular basis.

6 - Backwards compatability/interoperability (dual boot) with NT and/or others.




the question about the NICs refers to NIC cards...what happens if two NICs on a Windows 2000 network have the same address and both NICs are active...what happens
and why?


OK david....let's see if we can get some of these nailed...

Might have more questions shortly.
About the NIC's in windows 2000, Windows 2000 will not accept the settings. It will clear the settings for the second nic and let the first nic with the active settings work further on.
For the 3rd question, bout the Domain :
First function is Authentication & Authorisation of the users local (on the server; who may use the server) and remote (over the network; who may access the resources of the server).
For question 5, 'bout the standalone 2000 server :
As a web-server or an Exchange-server. Or in other cases where the server can be missed. You can work on your network without a web-server or any other server for 1 specific purpose.


just keep the info flowing dude......anything you can think of to add to the answers.

I am forwarding it to my friend...unfortunately, she is tied up at work...poor thing...she has to hand in her test this PM...

She had a week though..so I don't have ALL that much symapthy for her at this point...

but still, I like to do what I can to help her along.

We are not supposed to do homework. Please read the member agreement you signed when you joined


thanks...and sorry..I forgot about the homework rule

Hi I am Lab1, a community support moderator. I was going to delete this question as it violates the member agreement, but it wouldn't be fair to patrickpeters to remove the points. But I advise both the questioner and the experts involved here that we do not allow homework, nor do we allow experts to answer homework. Please keep this in mind in the future
