I have a question from a Transcender (290) i'm just not understanding
You are your company's network administrator. Your company's network consists of a single Active Directory
domain. All servers run Windows Server 2003, and all client computers run Windows XP Professional. The
network contains a member server named BkpSrv, which is equipped with a locally attached tape drive. You
log on to BkpSrv, open the Backup utility and schedule a backup job that targets a server named FS1. The
job successfully runs for several weeks. Then, your company implements an integrated backup solution from
a third party, and you must delete the scheduled backup job on BkpSrv. You want to accomplish this task
from your workstation. BkpSrv does not allow Remote Desktop connections.
a) the Backup utility
b) Scheduled Tasks in Control Panel
c) the ntbackup command
d) the schtasks command
Ans = (d) the schtasks command
To delete the scheduled backup job from BkpSrv remotely, while working on your workstation, you can use
the schtasks command with the /delete switch.
This command-line tool can be used to create, modify and delete scheduled tasks on local and remote computers. Schtasks replaces the at command, which is used in earlier versions of Windows. Windows Server 2003 also supports the at command for backward compatibility.
You can create, change, and delete scheduled backup jobs on the Schedule Jobs tab in the Backup utility.
To delete the scheduled backup job from BkpSrv, you can log on to BkpSrv, start Backup, select the
Schedule Jobs tab, open the job and click Delete. This only works properly from the local computer. You
cannot complete these steps remotely.
Although Schtasks is the command-line version of the Scheduled Tasks feature in Control Panel, the
Scheduled Tasks feature in Control Panel cannot be used to manage scheduled tasks on remote computers.
Similarly, the Backup utility on one computer cannot be used to control Backup utility settings on another
computer. The ntbackup command is the command-line version of the Backup utility. The ntbackup
command does not contain parameters that can be used to manage scheduled backup jobs.
The above is copied and pasted from the simulator.
They say the answer is (d), and in the explanation it says "To delete the scheduled backup job from BkpSrv remotely, while working on your workstation, you can use the schtasks command with the /delete switch. "
But in the question it said BkpSrv does NOT accept remote connections !!!!!!
Can someone please shed some light.....is their answer correct..if so how, esp considering they caid BkpSrv doesn't accept remote connections.
