CHAPTER ANSWERS IMPLEMENTING, MANAGING, AND MAINTAINING A MICROSOFT WINDOWS SERVER 2003 NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE CHAPTER ANSWERS IMPLEMENTING, MANAGING, AND MAINTAINING A MICROSOFT WINDOWS SERVER 2003 NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE 2 TEXTBOOK CHAPTER 1 ANSWERS: IMPLEMENTING DHCP CHAPTER 1 IMPLEMENTING DHCP CHAPTER REVIEW QUESTIONS 1. Under what circumstances should network administrators use DHCP? ANSWER Network administrators should use DHCP in situations in which manually configur- ing each host on a network becomes inefficient. As the number of hosts on a net- work grows, and as the number of configuration options for each host also grows, so does the need for and benefit of using DHCP. 2. Place the following DHCP message types in the order in which a success- ful initial IP address assignment procedure uses them. a. DHCPACK b. DHCPOFFER c. DHCPREQUEST d. DHCPDISCOVER ANSWER d, b, c, a. The client broadcasts a DHCPDISCOVER message to find the DHCP server, the server responds with a DHCPOFFER message, the client accepts the offer with a DHCPREQUEST message, and the server confirms by sending a DHCPACK message. 3. How does a DHCP client respond when its attempt to renew its IP address lease fails and the lease expires? ANSWER The IP address is released and the client begins the process of acquiring a new lease. 4. You have configured a scope with an address range of 192.168.0.11 through 192.168.0.254. However, your DNS server on the same subnet has already been assigned a static address of 192.168.0.200. With the least administrative effort, how can you allow for compatibility between the DNS servers address and DHCP service on the subnet? ANSWER By configuring an exclusion for the address 192.168.0.200, you can most easily allow for compatibility between the DNS server and the currently configured DHCP scope. 5. Within your only subnet, you want 10 specific DHCP clients (out of 150 total on the network) to use a test DNS server that is not assigned to any other computers through DHCP. How can you best achieve this objective? ANSWER The best way to achieve this objective is to create a new user class, configure a 006 DNS Servers option for the class that specifies the IP address of the test DNS server, and then set the class of the 10 DHCP clients by running the Ipconfig /setclassid command. TEXTBOOK CHAPTER 1 ANSWERS: IMPLEMENTING DHCP 3 CHAPTER CASE SCENARIOS Case Scenario 1-1: Obtaining an IP Address Last month, a server was configured for DHCP and was functioning normally. Five days ago, a test server on the same network segment was promoted to be the first domain controller on the network. Today several users on the same subnet as the original DHCP server have complained that they are unable to obtain an IP address using DHCP. What is the most likely reason users are unable to obtain an IP address?... View Full Document
