These questions are modeled after the content and difficulty as those you will find in the ExamSim MCSE 2000 software available from Syngress. Q: You are designing your Dynamic DNS network infrastructure. You network contains five physical and logical subnets, all of which are separated by 128Kbps ISDN WAN links. You want to optimize your host name resolution scheme, so you have decided to deploy a DNS Server on each of the segments.

Q: You are designing your Dynamic DNS network infrastructure. You network contains five physical and logical subnets, all of which are separated by 128Kbps ISDN WAN links. You want to optimize your host name resolution scheme, so you have decided to deploy a DNS Server on each of the segments.

The network clients consist of a mix of Win9x, Win 3.x, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 computers. All network clients will participate in the same Windows 2000 domain. You also want all network clients to have their names and IP addresses automatically entered into the DNS, without you having to ever manually configure entries in the DNS database yourself. You also want your configuration to be fault tolerant, so that in the event that a local DNS Server should become unavailable, the client will still be able to register is IP addressing information.

Which of the following should you do in order to attain your goals? [Choose all that apply]

  1. Create 5 Standard Primary DNS Servers and configure the all the network clients to register both their Host (A) Address information and Pointer (PTR) record information with their local DNS Server. Place one DNS Server on each subnet.
  2. Create 1 Standard Primary DNS Server and 4 Secondary DNS Servers. Configure each network client to automatically register its Host (A) record information and Pointer (PTR) record information with its local DNS Server. Configure each DNS Client with the IP address of all DNS Servers on the network and place the local DNS Server on the top of the list. Place one DNS Server on each segment.
  3. Create 5 Active Directory integrated DNS Servers. Configure all network clients to automatically register its Host (A) addressing information and its Pointer (PTR) address information directly with its local Active Directory integrated DNS Server. Configure each DNS Client with the IP address of all DNS Servers on the network and place the local DNS Server on the top of the list. Place one DNS Server on each segment.
  4. Create 5 Active Directory integrated DNS Servers. Install and configure a Windows 2000 DHCP Server and make all computers on the network DHCP clients. Configure the DHCP Server to enable updates for DNS clients that do not support dynamic update. Configure the DNS clients with the IP addresses of all the DNS Servers on the network and place the local DNS Server on the top of the list. Place a DNS Server on each segment.

The correct answer is D.
