Q: – What’s the difference between standalone and fault-tolerant DFS (Distributed File System) installations?

The standalone server stores the Dfs directory tree structure or topology locally. Thus, if a shared folder is inaccessible or if the Dfs root server is down, users are left with no link to the shared resources. A fault-tolerant root node stores the Dfs topology in the Active Directory, which is replicated to other domain controllers. Thus, redundant root nodes may include multiple connections to the same data residing in different shared folders.

Q: – I have a file to which the user has access, but he has no folder permission to read it. Can he access it?

It is possible for a user to navigate to a file for which he does not have folder permission. This involves simply knowing the path of the file object. Even if the user can’t drill down the file/folder tree using My Computer, he can still gain access to the file using the Universal Naming Convention (UNC). The best way to start would be to type the full path of a file into Run… window.

Q: – For a user in several groups, are Allow permissions restrictive or permissive?

Permissive, if at least one group has Allow permission for the file/folder, user will have the same permission.

Q: –How can you restrict running certain applications on a machine?

Via group policy, security settings for the group, then Software Restriction Policies

Q: –For a user in several groups, are Deny permissions restrictive or permissive?

Restrictive, if at least one group has Deny permission for the file/folder, user will be denied access, regardless of other group permissions.

Q: –We’re using the DFS fault-tolerant installation, but cannot access it from a Win98 box.

Use the UNC path, not client, only 2000 and 2003 clients can access Server 2003 fault-tolerant shares.

Q: –You need to automatically install an app, but MSI file is not available. What do you do?
