TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance
Question Number (ID) : 1 (432P_1.3_03) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ You are configuring the attack surface for your Microsoft SQL Server 2008 instances. One of your requirements is to ensure that someone cannot send a browse requestacross the network to enumerate all the servers running SQL Server.How do you meet your security requirements?1. Start the SQL Server Configuration Manager and enable the Hide Instance property. <Correct>2. Start the SQL Server Configuration Manager and disable the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol.3. >>Start the SQL Server Configuration Manager and disable the SQL Browser service.4. Start the SQL Server Surface Area Configuration Manager and disable remote connections.
By default, all SQL Server instances respond to an enumeration request sent across the network. This enables anyone with access to the network to browse for a list of all theservers running SQL Server that are online. You can prevent SQL Server from responding to enumeration requests by starting the SQL Server Configuration Manager,expanding the SQL Server Network Configuration node, right-clicking the Protocols for <instance name>, selecting Properties, setting the Hide Instance property to Yes, andrestarting the instance. After the instance is restarted, you no longer can enumerate the server running SQL Server on the network.Disabling the TCP/IP protocol prevents anyone from connecting to the instance remotely. Disabling the SQL Browser service forces anyone attempting to access a namedinstance to specify the port number for the instance.The SQL Server Surface Area Configuration Manager is a SQL Server 2005 utility that is no longer used in SQL Server 2008.
