Question: 2


You administer computers that run windows 7 and Windows 8. You run an application that saves files that contain local settings unique to each user.

You want to allow users to synchronize settings for an application to any enterprise computer when they log on to the enterprise computer.

You need to implement a solution that will move a user’s settings files to any computer. You also need to ensure that you can roll back the changes if necessary.

Which required task or tasks should you perform with each approach? (To answer, drag the appropriate required task to the corresponding approach. Each required task may be used once, more than once, or not at all. You may need to drag the split bar between panes or scroll to view content.)




* Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) uses settings location templates to roam application settings between user computers. Some standard settings location templates are included with User Experience Virtualization. You can also create, edit, or validate custom settings location templates with the UE-V Generator.

Settings template catalog

The User Experience Virtualization settings template catalog is a folder path on UE-V computers or a Server Message Block (SMB) network share that stores all the custom settings location templates. The UE-V agent retrieves new or updated templates from this location. The UE-V agent checks this location once each day and updates its synchronization behavior based on the templates in this folder. Templates that were added or updated in this folder since the last time that the folder was checked are registered by the UE-V agent. The UE-V agent deregisters templates that are removed from this folder. By default, templates are registered and unregistered one time per day at 3:30 A.M. local time by the task scheduler.

The Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) is a suite of technologies available as a subscription for Software Assurance customers. MDOP virtualization technologies help personalize the user experience, simplify application deployment, and improve application compatibility with the Windows operating system (UE-V/App-V/MED-V). Additionally, MDOP helps manage, monitor, and deploy key Windows features (MBAM/AGPM). Using MDOP shifts desktop repair from reactive to proactive, saving time and removing challenges associated with troubleshooting and repairing system failures (DaRT).

Question: 4

You administer client computers that run Windows 8 Enterprise deployed by using Windows Deployment Services (WDS). Your company recently purchased 25 new tablets that run Windows 8 Pro.

For all 25 new tablets, you want to replace the existing Windows 8 Pro installation with Windows 8 Enterprise.

You need to deploy the Windows 8 Enterprise image to all 25 tablets simultaneously by using the existing WDS infrastructure.

What should you do?

A. Start the tablets from the Windows To Go workspace.

B. Start the tablets from a USB flash drive with a customized Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE).

C. Start the tablets normally. Map the Windows Image (WIM) file from a WDS network share.

D. Start the tablets from a customized Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE).

Answer: B


Walkthrough: Create a Custom Windows PE Image

To create a bootable UFD (USB Flash Drive)

During a running Windows Vista operation system or a Windows PE session, insert your UFD device.

At a command prompt, use Diskpart to format the device as FAT32 spanning the entire device, setting the partition to active. For example,


select disk 1


create partition primary size=

select partition 1activeformat fs=fat32assignexitwhere the value of disk 1 is equal to UFD.On your technician computer, copy all the content in the \ISO directory to your UFD device. You can manually create the directory structure or use the xcopy command to automatically build and copy the appropriate files from your technician computer to your UFD device. For example,xcopy c:\winpe_x86\iso\*.* /s /e /f f:\where c is the letter of your technician computer hard disk and f is the letter of your UFD device.Reference:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709665(v=ws.10).aspx Question: 5 DRAG DROPYou support computers that run Windows 8 Enterprise. Company policy requires that Microsoft Internet Explorer be the only browser allowed and supported.You collect software metering data and discover that several users are running other third-party browsers.You need to block other web browsers from running on the computers. All other applications should be allowed.Which three actions should you perform in sequence? (To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of actions to the answer area and arrange them in the correct order.) Answer: Box 1: Box 2: Enforce Executable rules.Box 3: Explanation:Note:* Use Computer Configuration (not user configuration).* Restrict Access to Programs with AppLocker in Windows 7If you share a computer and dont want other users accessing certain applications, there is a new feature in Windows 7 that allows you to block them. We restrict what programs other users can access using AppLocker.Under Local Computer Policy go to Computer Configuration \ Windows Settings \ Security Settings \ Application Control Policies \ AppLocker.Now under AppLocker Properties check the boxes next to Configured under Executable rules then click Ok. Finally create a Deny Executable rule for each browser you want to block.Reference:http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh831440.aspx Question: 6 DRAG DROPYou support computers that run windows 8 Enterprise. AppLocker policies are deployed.Company policy states that AppLocker must be disabled.You need to disable AppLocker.Which three actions should you perform in sequence? (To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of actions to the answer area and arrange them in the correct order.) Answer: Box 1: Delete all AppLocker rules.Box 2: Disable the Application Identity service.Box 3: Run the gpupdate /force command. Explanation:Note:* Before you can enforce AppLocker policies, you must start the Application Identity service by using the Services snap-in console.* The Application Identity service determines and verifies the identity of an application. Stopping this service will prevent AppLocker policies from being enforced.References:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh852337.aspx Question: 7 DRAG DROPYou administer laptops and virtual desktop computers that run Windows 8 and are joined to an Active Directory domain.Your company provides virtual desktop computers to all users. Employees in the sales department also use laptops, sometimes connected to the company network and sometimes disconnected from the company network.You want sales department employees to have the same personal data, whether they are using their virtual desktop computers or their laptops.You need to configure the network environment to meet the requirements.Which three actions should you perform in sequence? (To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of actions to the answer area and arrange them in the correct order.) Answer: Box 1: Box 2: Box 3: Explanation:Note: Folder Redirection and Offline Files are used together to redirect the path of local folders (such as the Documents folder) to a network location, while caching the contents locally for increased speed and availability.* Folder Redirection enables users and administrators to redirect the path of a known folder to a new location, manually or by using Group Policy. The new location can be a folder on the local computer or a directory on a file share. Users interact with files in the redirected folder as if it still existed on the local drive. For example, you can redirect the Documents folder, which is usually stored on a local drive, to a network location. The files in the folder are then available to the user from any computer on the network.* Offline Files makes network files available to a user, even if the network connection to the server is unavailable or slow. When working online, file access performance is at the speed of the network and server. When working offline, files are retrieved from the Offline Files folder at local access speeds. A computer switches to Offline Mode when:The new Always Offline mode has been enabledThe server is unavailableThe network connection is slower than a configurable thresholdThe user manually switches to Offline Mode by using the Work offline button in Windows ExplorerReferences: Folder Redirection, Offline Files, and Roaming User Profiles overviewhttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hh868022.aspx Question: 8You manage a network that includes computers that run Windows 8 Enterprise.
