chapter 12 1. f, h 2. d 3. c 4. a 5. c 6. b 7. d 8. a 9. c 10. b 1. which of the following provides the ability to recover from the failure of a single hard drive? a.

primary partition b. extended partition c. logical drive d. simple volume e. spanned volume f. mirrored volume g. striped volume h. raid-5 volume 2. a. b. c. d. e. what type of disk region supports logical drives? primary partitions simple volumes spanned volumes extended partitions unallocated space

3. you recently added a disk to a computer. the disk had previously been used in a windows 2000 server. the disk appears in device manager, but is not appearing correctly in disk management. what task must you apply? a. import foreign disk b. format volume c. rescan d. change drive letter or path e. convert to dynamic disk 4. you re the administrator of a windows server 2003 computer. you want to fix any file system errors and recover any bad sectors on your computer s hard disk. whic h tool should you use? a. check disk b. disk defragmenter c. diskpart d. disk quotas 5. what is the required amount of free disk space on a volume in order to provid e for complete defragmentation? a. 5 percent b. 10 percent c. 15 percent d. 25 percent e. 50 percent 6. you re implementing software raid on your windows server 2003 computer. you wan t to provide fault tolerance to the system and boot partitions. which version of raid should you use? a. raid-0 b. raid-1

c. raid-5 d. you cannot use software raid to protect a boot partition. 7. you re setting up a windows server 2003 computer and you want to protect the da ta on the hard disk. you want to implement a solution that provides the fastest disk i/o possible and supports the hot swapping of hard disks. which raid soluti on should you use? a. raid-0 b. raid-1 c. raid-5 d. hardware raid 8. you re setting up raid-5 on your windows server 2003 computer. you plan to use five hard disks, which are each 20 gb in size. what percentage of redundancy can you anticipate with this configuration? a. 20 b. 25 c. 33 d. 50 9. you re setting up software raid on your windows server 2003 computer to pro-vid e fault tolerance to the data stored on that system. the computer is used as a d atabase server. the server performs many read operations but relatively few writ e operations. as a result, you want a fault-tolerant solution that provides exce l-lent read performance. which raid solution should you use? a. raid-0 b. raid-1 c. raid-5 10. a computer where you want to implement raid-5 contains three disks, each wit h 2 gb of unallocated space. using the disk management snap-in, you start the ne w volume wizard by right-clicking one of the regions of unallocated space. when you reach the select volume type screen, the raid-5 option is not available. wha t is the most likely reason for this behavior? a. raid-5 is already implemented in hardware. b. one or two of the disks are configured with the basic storage type. c. all three disks are configured with the dynamic storage type. d. all three disks are configured with the basic storage type. e. raid-5 is already implemented in software.
