-g: Same as -a.inet_addr: Specifies an internet address.-N if_addr: Displays the ARP entries for the network interface specified by if_addr.-d: Deletes the host specified by inet_addr. Flushes entire cache if 'inet_addr' is not specified.

-s: Adds the host and associates the Internet address inet_addr with the Physical address eth_addr. The Physical address is given as 6 hexadecimal bytes separated by hyphens. The entry is permanent.eth_addr: Specifies a physical address.if_addr: If present, this specifies the Internet address of the interface whose address translation table should be modified.

Exam Tip:
How can you deploy Active Directory with the “least amount of administrative effort” in a multi-platform network (one that contains UNIX servers)?
By installing your network’s first DNS domains, along with its first Active Directory domains, on computers running Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003.
This is because only in Windows environments are the many SRV records required for Active Directory created automatically. If you want to deploy DNS on a UNIX server and integrate the UNIX server into an Active Directory infrastructure,
configure the UNIX server as a secondary DNS server.

You have been asked to perform an offline compaction of the DHCP database on one of your Microsoft Windows Server 2003 DHCP servers. What command-line tool would you use to accomplish this?a. The Compact utilityb. The Compress utility
c. the jetpack utilityEXPLANATION: Windows Server 2003 uses the Jetpack utility to perform offline compaction of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) database. (Discussion starts on page 43.)
An administrator has configured a DHCP server on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 in an Active Directory domain. A scope has been configured that has a valid range of addresses from through DHCP-enabled
d. Authorize the DHCP server in Active Directory.EXPLANATION: A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server in an Active Directory domain must be authorized before it can respond to DHCPDISCOVER messages from DHCP-enabled clients.

The domain functional level must be Windows 2000 native or higher which does not support NT 4 server (upgrade them).
Exam Tip:
What can you do to reduce name resolution traffic when you have deployed caching-only servers in your network?
Increase the minimum TTL for records.

What is the default encryption method for PPTP VPN connections?

MPPEHowever, you can use PPTP with a certificate infrastructure
if you choose EAP-TLS as the authentication protocol.

How can you specify a DNS suffix for a single network connection?

IP Properties of that connection

What are alias (CNAME) resource records typically used for?

These records allow you to use more than one name to point to a single host. For example, the well-known server names (ftp, www) are typically registered using CNAME resource records.
You are the network administrator of a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 network that has 1,200 DHCP clients. You notice that the Dhcp.mdb file is 35 megabytes in size. What action can you take to improve the performance of DHCP?a. Perform an off
a. Perform an offline compaction of the DHCP database using the Jetpack utility.EXPLANATION: When the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) database file exceeds 30 megabytes, you should perform an offline compaction of the DHCP database using the Jetpack utility.
A network administrator has a single Class C address space, which is The network consists of 150 users who are logged on to the network at all times and 150 sales users who have portable computers and who are periodically logged on to the ne
c. Decrease the default lease period to 1 day.EXPLANATION: With a single Class C address, only 254 possible addresses are available. Because you have a total of 300 potential users on your network, you should decrease the lease period so that addresses that are no longer in use will be readily available.

When should you use a stub zone? Where are stub zones usually hosted?

Stub zones are most frequently used to keep track of the name servers authoritative for delegated zones. Most often, stub zones are hosted on the parent DNS servers of those
delegated zones.

Answer: Having one or more super-users with high priority
Exam Tip: What details can you find out with Network Monitor that might have been lost with documentation?
You can use Network Monitor to find out certain details—such as the MAC address of a network interface card (NIC), the globally unique identifier (GUID) of a client computer, or the port used by a protocol.
When you perform a backup of the DHCP database, which of the following items are backed up?a. All scopes, superscopes, and multicast scopesb. Client reservationsc. Leasesd. Optionse. All of the above
e. All of the aboveEXPLANATION: The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) backup process backs up the entire DHCP database including all scopes, superscopes, multicast scopes, client reservations, leases, and options.
Which encryption type is used with dial-up and PPTP-based VPN connections?
MPPE - based on the RSA RC4 family of algorithms.
You are a network administrator of a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 domain that is configured to use secure dynamic updates for DNS. The network clients have just been updated from Microsoft Windows NT 4 to Microsoft Windows 2000, and the DHCP server has
b. The DHCP server is not a member of the DnsUpdateProxy security group.EXPLANATION: With secure dynamic updates, only the registering client can modify Domain Name System (DNS) records. Because the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server initially registered these clients—unless the DHCP server was a member of the DnsUpdateProxy security group—the DHCP server would be the only computer with the right to update DNS records. Adding the DHCP server to the DnsUpdateProxy security group allows the Windows 2000 clients to update DNS.
