LAB REVIEW QUESTIONS


Completion time
1.

15 minutes

In your own words, describe what you learned by completing this lab.

I learned how to change the time zone on the server computer, change the name of the computer, how to view what was installed as
far as network components, how to set the ipv4 address to a static address, and I also learned what the shield icon meant that is displayed
next to the change date and time button. I also learned how to use some of the ipv4 commands under netsh that would need to be used
if a server core is installed.

2.

Open the Server Manager console on your Windows Server 2008 computer. What
selections are available to you in the left pane? We have roles, reatures,
diagnostics, configuration and storage

3. Using the Windows Help option, describe any roles and features that are currently
installed on this server. Looking at both servere 1 and 2, neither of them have any roles
features currently installed.

4.

Explain in your own words why it is a best practice to configure a server, such as
a DNS server, with a static IP address rather than allowing it to obtain an IP
address using DHCP. The reasons for a static IP address to make communication
between the computers on the network easier and because it stores the IP
addresses of all the computers on the network. DHCP is because the IP address
in only good for so long and if the DNS server crashes ad then brought back up ,
it will have a different ip address, so the computers might not be able to
communicate with it.

5.

Explore the netsh command menus. Record three commands that you can issue
from the command line using netsh, and describe what each command does.
Show mode, which show you that the server core is currently online. When you
issue the command offline, it puts the Server core offline, command online brings
the server core online.
