QUESTION 1
You are designing a plan to deploy a new application to Azure. The solution must provide a single sign-on experience for users.
You need to recommend an authentication type.
Which authentication type should you recommend?

A. SAML credential tokens
B. Azure managed access keys
C. Windows Authentication
D. MS-CHAP

Answer: A

Explanation: A Microsoft cloud service administrator who wants to provide their Azure Active Directory (AD) users with sign-on validation can use a SAML 2.0 compliant SP-Lite profile based Identity Provider as their preferred Security Token Service (STS) / identity provider. This is useful where the solution implementer already has a user directory and password store on-premises that can be accessed using SAML 2.0. This existing user directory can be used for sign-on to Office 365 and other Azure AD-secured resources.
Reference: Use a SAML 2.0 identity provider to implement single sign-on

QUESTION 2
You need to design the system that alerts project managers to data changes in the contractor information app.
Which service should you use?

A. Azure Mobile Service
B. Azure Service Bus Message Queueing
C. Azure Queue Messaging
D. Azure Notification Hub

Answer: C

Explanation: * Scenario:
/ Mobile Apps: Event-triggered alerts must be pushed to mobile apps by using a custom Node.js script.
/ The service level agreement (SLA) for the solution requires an uptime of 99.9%
* If you are already using Azure Storage Blobs or Tables and you start using queues, you are guaranteed 99.9% availability. If you use Blobs or Tables with Service Bus queues, you will have lower availability.
Note: Microsoft Azure supports two types of queue mechanisms: Azure Queues and Service Bus Queues.
/ Azure Queues, which are part of the Azure storage infrastructure, feature a simple REST-based Get/Put/Peek interface, providing reliable, persistent messaging within and between services.
/ Service Bus queues are part of a broader Azure messaging infrastructure that supports queuing as well as publish/subscribe, Web service remoting, and integration patterns.

QUESTION 3
You need to recommend a solution that allows partners to authenticate.
Which solution should you recommend?

A. Configure the federation provider to trust social identity providers.
B. Configure the federation provider to use the Azure Access Control service.
C. Create a new directory in Azure Active Directory and create a user account for the partner.
D. Create an account on the VanArsdel domain for the partner and send an email message that contains the password to the partner.

Answer: B

Explanation: * Scenario: The partners all use Hotmail.com email addresses.
* In Microsoft Azure Active Directory Access Control (also known as Access Control Service or ACS), an identity provider is a service that authenticates user or client identities and issues security tokens that ACS consumes.
The ACS Management Portal provides built-in support for configuring Windows Live ID as an ACS Identity Provider.
Incorrect:
Not C, not D: Scenario: VanArsdel management does NOT want to create and manage user accounts for partners.
Reference: Identity Providers

QUESTION 1
Your company has a main office and two branch offices. The offices connect to each other by using a WAN link.
In the main office, you have a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2012 R2.
Server1 is configured to use an IPv4 address only.
You need to assign an IPv6 address to Server1. The IP address must be private and routable.
Which IPv6 address should you assign to Server1?
A. fe80:ab32:145c::32cc:401b
B. ff00:3fff:65df:145c:dca8::82a4
C. 2001:ab32:145c::32cc:401b
D. fd00:ab32:14:ad88:ac:58:abc2:4

Answer: D

Explanation:
Unique local addresses are IPv6 addresses that are private to an organization in the same way that private addresses–such as 10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, or 172.16.0.0 172.31.255.255–can be used on an IPv4 network.
Unique local addresses, therefore, are not routable on the IPv6 Internet in the same way that an address like 10.20.100.55 is not routable on the IPv4 Internet. A unique local address is always structured as follows:
The first 8 bits are always 11111101 in binary format. This means that a unique local address always begins with FD and has a prefix identifier of FD00::/8.


QUESTION 2
Your network contains an Active Directory domain named contoso.com. The domain contains a server named Server1. Server1 runs Windows Server 2012 R2 and has the
Hyper-V server role installed.
On Server1, you create and start a virtual machine named VM1. VM1 is configured as shown in the following table.


You need to recommend a solution to minimize the amount of disk space used for the checkpoint of VM1.
What should you do before you create the checkpoint?
A. Run the Resize-VHD cmdlet.
B. Convert Disk1.vhd to a dynamically expanding disk.
C. Shut down VM1.
D. Run the Convert-VHD cmdlet.

Answer: C

Explanation:
Changing between a fixed and dynamic disk type does not alter the size of a SNAPSHOT much at all.
However, since a snapshot is a record of a VMs state at the exact time that the snapshot was taken, shutting down the VM before taking the snapshot prevents the snapshot from having to contain all of the data in RAM (as there is no data in memory when a machine is powered down).
The question states that the solution should minimize the amount of disk space used for the checkpoint of VM1. If the checkpoint is taken while VM1 is running, there will be two attritional files present at the checkpoint location; a .VSV with VM1 saved state files and a
.BIN file which contains VM1’s memory contents. If, however, VM1 is shut down first, these files will not be created, thus saving disk space.
In order to convert Disk1.vhd to a dynamically expanding disk, VM1 still have to be shut down.


QUESTION 3
Your network contains an Active Directory forest named contoso.com.
The forest contains two domains named contoso.com and child.contoso.com and two sites named Site1 and Site2. The domains and the sites are configured as shown in following table.


When the link between Site1 and Site2 fails, users fail to log on to Site2.
You need to identify what prevents the users in Site2 from logging on to the child.contoso.com domain.
What should you identify?
A. The placement of the global catalog server
B. The placement of the infrastructure master
C. The placement of the domain naming master
D. The placement of the PDC emulator

Answer: D

Explanation:
The exhibit shows that Site2 does not have a PDC emulator. This is important because of the close interaction between the RID operations master role and the PDC emulator role.
The PDC emulator processes password changes from earlier-version clients and other domain controllers on a best-effort basis; handles password authentication requests involving passwords that have recently changed and not yet been replicated throughout the domain; and, by default, synchronizes time. If this domain controller cannot connect to the PDC emulator, this domain controller cannot process authentication requests, it may not be able to synchronize time, and password updates cannot be replicated to it.
The PDC emulator master processes password changes from client computers and replicates these updates to all domain controllers throughout the domain. At any time, there can be only one domain controller acting as the PDC emulator master in each domain in the forest.


QUESTION 4 HOTSPOT
Your network contains an Active Directory domain named contoso.com. All domain controllers run Windows Server 2012 R2.
All servers are configured to enforce AppLocker policies.
You install a server named Server1.
On Server1, you install an application named App1.exe in a folder located on C:\App1.
You have two domain groups named Group1 and Group2.A user named User1 is a member of Group1 and Group2.
You create a Group Policy object (GPO) named GPO1. You link GPO1 to contoso.com.
You create the executable rules as shown in the exhibit by using the Create Executable Rules wizard. (Click the Exhibit button.)


To answer, complete each statement according to the information presented in the exhibit. Each correct selection is worth one point.

Answer:


QUESTION 5
Your network contains a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2012 R2. Server1 has the Hyper-V server role installed.
Server1 hosts four virtual machines named VM1, VM2, VM3, and VM4.
Server1 is configured as shown in the following table.


You need to ensure that VM1 can use more CPU time than the other virtual machines when the CPUs on Server1 are under a heavy load.
What should you configure?
A. NUMA topology
B. Resource control
C. resource metering
D. virtual Machine Chimney
E. The VLAN ID
F. Processor Compatibility
G. The startup order
H. Automatic Start Action
I. Integration Services
J. Port mirroring
K. Single-root I/O virtualization

Answer: B

Explanation:
B. Resource controls provide you with several ways to control the way that Hyper-V allocates resources to virtual machine. Resource control in used in the event where you need to adjust the computing resources of a virtual machine, you can reconfigure the resources to meet the changing needs. You can also specify resource controls to automate how resources are allocated to virtual machines.

QUESTION 6
Your network contains an Active Directory domain named contoso.com. The domain contains a DHCP server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2012 R2.
You create a DHCP scope named Scope1. The scope has a start address of 192.168.1.10, an end address of 192.168.1.50, and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.192.
You need to ensure that Scope1 has a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
What should you do first?
A. From the DHCP console, reconcile Scope1.
B. From the DHCP console, delete Scope1.
C. From the DHCP console, modify the Scope Options of Scope1.
D. From Windows PowerShell, run the Set-DhcpServerv4Scope cmdlet.

Answer: B

Explanation:
You cannot change the subnet mask of a DHCP scope without deleting the scope and recreating it with the new subnet mask.
Set-DhcpServerv4Scope does not include a parameter for the subnet mask.


QUESTION 7
Your network contains an Active Directory domain named contoso.com. The domain contains two servers named Server1 and Server2 that run Windows Server 2012 R2. Server1 has the Group Policy Management feature installed. Server2 has the Print and Document Services server role installed.
On Server2, you open Print Management and you deploy a printer named Printer1 by using a Group Policy object (GPO) named GPO1.When you open GPO1 on Server1, you discover that the Deployed Printers node does not appear.
You need to view the Deployed Printers node in GPO1.
What should you do?
A. On Server1, modify the Group Policy filtering options of GPO1.
B. On a domain controller, create a Group Policy central store.
C. On Server2, install the Group Policy Management feature.
D. On Server1, configure the security filtering of GPO1.

Answer: C

Explanation:
Pre-Requisites
To use Group Policy for printer deployment you will need to have a Windows Active Directory domain, and this article assumes that your Domain Controller is a Windows 2008 R2 Server. You will also need the Print Services role installed on a server (can be on your DC), and you will be using the Print Management and Group Policy Management consoles to configure the various settings. It’s assumed that you have already followed Part One and have one or more printers shared on your server with the necessary drivers, ready to deploy to your client computers.

Microsoft to open source the Edge browser JavaScript engine

Move is designed to allow its partners to make their own contributions.

The Edge browser that comes with Windows 10 shows a marked improvement in performance, particularly in the area of JavaScript performance. Now Microsoft wants to amp up performance even more, and is going to do so by making the JavaScript engine source available as open source.

Microsoft wrote the Chakra JavaScript engine from scratch, using the most current Java technologies to give Edge a major performance boost over the aging Internet Explorer line. At the JSConf show for JavaScript and Web developers, the company announced that the core components, known as ChakraCore, will be released on GitHub next month. The type of license was not disclosed.

The announcement came in the form of a blog post, as usual, from Gaurav Seth, principal PM manager. Seth said that in addition to getting community/user contribution, vendors like Intel, AMD, and NodeSource had expressed interest in contributing to ChakraCore.

The open source code does not include the engine’s private bindings for COM and Universal Windows Apps. Instead, ChakraCore will support a new set of modern diagnostic APIs, which will be platform-agnostic and could be standardized or made interoperable across different implementations.

The initial January release will be for Windows only, but Seth said the company is committed to bringing ChakraCore to other platforms in the future. “We’d invite developers to help us in this pursuit by letting us know which other platforms they’d like to see ChakraCore supported on to help us prioritize future investments, or even by helping port it to the platform of their choice.” Translation: please port it to Linux.

Microsoft will open its public GitHub repository for community contributions in January. At that time, it will provide more details on the project, its priorities, and how to contribute to the project.

“The community is at the heart of any open source project, so we look forward to the community cloning the repository, inspecting the code, building it, and contributing everything from new functionality to tests or bug fixes,” Seth wrote. “We also welcome suggestions on how to improve ChakraCore for particular scenarios that are important to you or your business.”
