Question 1
Your system has two hard disks—DISK 0, which is basic, and DISK 1, which is dynamic. You install a new hard disk. When you run the Computer Management console, the Disk Management display represents the new hard disk as DISK 2. Which of the following steps should you take to extend the volume on DISK 1 across DISK 2? (Choose the best answer.)

  1. Right-click DISK 2 and select Span Volume. The Span Volume wizard will appear. Select DISK 1, and the wizard will extend the volume.
  2. Right-click DISK 1 and select Span Volume. The Span Volume wizard will appear. Select DISK 2, and the wizard will extend the volume.
  3. Right-click DISK 2 and select "Convert to Extended disk." When the conversion finishes, right-click DISK 1 and select Extend Volume. In the Span Volume wizard, add DISK 2 and click Next.
  4. Right-click DISK 2 and select "Convert to Basic disk." When the conversion finishes, right-click DISK 1 and select Extend Volume. In the Span Volume wizard, add DISK 2 and click Next.
  5. Right-click DISK 2 and select "Convert to Dynamic disk." When the conversion finishes, right-click DISK 1 and select Extend Volume. In the Span Volume wizard, add DISK 2 and click Next.

Question 2
You recently added 30GB hard disks to each of your company's 100 Windows XP Professional workstations. Before you upgraded these systems, each system had one hard disk with one volume. You want to write a script that you can use with the Diskpart utility to create a simple volume and mount it in the directory c:\mountpoint on each machine. Which of the following scripts will create the correct directory, create the simple volume, and mount it in the correct position? (Choose the best answer.)

  1. Create volume simple disk 1, convert dynamic, and assign mount c:\mountpoint.
  2. Convert dynamic simple disk 1, mount c:\mountpoint, and create volume disk 1.
  3. Create volume disk 1 type simple, convert dynamic disk 1, and mount disk 1 c:\mountpoint.
  4. Create volume spanned disk 1, convert dynamic, and assign mount c:\mountpoint.
  5. Create volume disk 1, convert dynamic, and assign mount DISK 0:\mountpoint.

Question 3

IPCONFIG /ALL

from a command prompt? (Select all that apply.)

  2. Node type
  3. IP routing enabled

Answers (March 29, 2002)

Answer to Question 1
The correct answer is E—Right-click DISK 2 and select "Convert to Dynamic disk." When the conversion finishes, right-click DISK 1 and select Extend Volume. In the Span Volume wizard, add DISK 2 and click Next. You must first convert the new hard disk, DISK 2, to dynamic so that the system can extend the volume on DISK 1.

Answer to Question 2
The correct answer is A—Create volume simple disk 1, convert dynamic, and assign mount c:\mountpoint. Note that the question doesn't ask you to format the disk. To run a script from Diskpart, type "diskpart /s script.txt."

Answer to Question 3
The correct answer is A—Host name; B—Node type; C—IP routing enabled; D—DHCP enabled; and E—WINS proxy enabled. The system displays a DNS suffix, but the suffix can be different from a domain name. For example, in a mixed mode domain, your domain might be ARTS, but your primary DNS suffix might be artsfac.melbuni.edu.au. In some native mode domains, these entities will be the same. IPCONFIG is your first port of call for determining TCP/IP configurations in Windows .NET, XP, Windows 2000, or Windows NT 4.0.
