Technical Questions

Net bios name max length
Ans: The NetBIOS naming convention allows for 16 characters in a NetBIOS name. Microsoft, however,

limits NetBIOS names to 15 characters and uses the 16th character as a NetBIOS suffix.

The NetBIOS suffix is used by Microsoft Networking software to identify functionality installed on the registered
2) Windows NT is using netbios? True or false details
Ans: Yes because Microsoft networking services running on a Windows NT-based
computer are identified by using NetBIOS names.

Windows 2000 supports net bios or not?
Ans: Yes. Using WINS it allow a NetBIOS name to be converted to an IP address. Therefore

computers using WINS must be using NBT (NetBIOS over TCP/IP). The purpose of WINS is to allow a
NetBIOS name to be converted to an IP address. Therefore computers using WINS must be using NBT
(NetBIOS over TCP/IP).

What are the tools for backup-third party?
Ans: Tivoli, Veritos, Netvault

What is the cluster?
Ans: A group of independent computer systems known as nodes or hosts, that work together as a

single system to ensure that mission-critical applications and resources remain available to clients. A
server cluster is the type of cluster that the Cluster service implements. Network Load Balancing
provides a software solution for clustering multiple computers running Windows 2000 Server that
provides networked services over the Internet and private intranets. In file systems a cluster is the
smallest amount of disk space that can be allocated to hold a file. All file systems used by Windows
2000 organize hard disks based on clusters, also called allocation units. The smaller the cluster size,
the more efficiently a disk stores information. If no cluster size is specified during formatting, Windows
2000 picks defaults based on the size of the volume and the file system used. These defaults are
selected to reduce the amount of space lost and the amount of fragmentation on the volume.

How to create backup in NT?

Ans: Windows NT Server includes a graphical tool called Backup that makes it
easy to back up your Windows NT Server-based data to tape drive. Backup allows you
to: Back up and restore both local and remote files on NTFS, FAT, or HPFS
partitions from a single location.

Click Start. follow the instructions on the screen to finish Setup.exe /cmdcons in the Open box. 4. you need the Administrator password that is used in the Directory Service Restore mode TCS Port no of various services.  Copies of NS records for all name servers authoritative for the zone. Click OK. This zone contains only enough data to identify the DNS servers that are authoritative for the zone and all the records for that zone. You can't update it. The Global Catalog enables users and applications to find objects in Active Directory given one or more attributes of the target object. "The network path was not found?" is the error u r getting when u try to access the resource but u could able to ping the machine. 7. For Domain Controllers. Stub Zone In DNS A stub zone (slide 7) is a read-only copy of a zone. 6. The attributes in the Global Catalog are those most frequently used in search operations (such as a user's first and last names) and those attributes that are required to locate a full replica of the object. without knowing what domain holds the object. but each object includes a limited number of its attributes. where CD-ROM drive letter is the drive letter assigned to your CD-ROM drive. and then restart your computer. and then type CD-ROM drive letter:\i386\winnt32. The Active Directory replication system builds the Global Catalog 3. Forest migration 9. Basically what we have here is a zone that contains specific information on what DNS servers are authoritative for that zone.    Check whether firewall enabled Check File print sharing may enabled or not Make sure that you have enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP if this is a mixed OS network .  A copy of the SOA record for the zone. The Global Catalog holds a replica of every object in Active Directory.

Port no of various services. There can be only one PDC emulator in a domain.MyDomain.  Supporting Active Directory (AD) replication to Win2K domain controllers and NTLM replication to BDCs. What is the difference between WINS and DNS? Why should we use DNS instead of WINS? WINS resolves netbios computer names to IP address. you will notice you can use a different "hostname" from "computername". WINS = MyComputer = 192. a Win2K domain assigns a domain controller to act as a PDC for NT BDCs.  Handling account modifications.1 Note: DNS is primarily used to resolve domain names to the IP addresses that are held in Domain Name Servers. What are the switches available with Dcpromo command? DCPROMO /Answer[:filename] DCPROMO /adv 12. you would have to type and IP address to get to a web site.168.0.1 DNS = MyComputer. . including:  Emulating as a PDC and replicating account information to BDCs.  Acting as a master browser for NT clients. If you go through your network settings for the TCP/IP protocol.168. Why we are not able to add WINNT in native modes? In mixed mode. the first domain controller in a Win2K domain acts as a PDC emulator.0.10. Without DNS servers. DNS is primarily used on WANS 11. The PDC emulator performs several important tasks in mixed mode.and not WANS. ACCENTURE II 1.Com = 192. What is LDAP? Ans: Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) A directory service protocol that runs directly over TCP/IP and the primary access protocol for Active Directory. Servers use WINs to resolve Netbios 15 letter names to IP addresses. LDAP version 3 is defined by a set of Proposed Standard documents in Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) RFC 2251.  Providing NT LAN Manager (NTLM) authentication services. DNS resolves hostnames to an ip address. including password changes. 2. WINS is generally used on LANS. By default. and you can assign the role to any domain controller in a domain.

Note: To see a list of available commands at any of the prompts in the Ntdsutil tool. and then press ENTER. type q. you would type seize rid master: 7. make sure there’s at least one Win2K domain controller in that site because the Win2K clients first attempt to locate Win2K domain controllers using DNS. 3. and then press ENTER. FSMO roles ? f:\madhan\Interview Tips\Technical\Sources\fsmo. Type connect to server <servername>. 5. For example. Click on Yes. . and then press ENTER. You will receive a warning window asking if you want to perform the seize.htm 1) On any domain controller. type ?. . .

This type of restore is typically used if a DC fails for hardware or software reasons. An authoritative restoration restores the DC's directory to the state it was in when the backup was made. If the first domain controller is out of the forest then seize all roles. then replicates the objects that you mark as authoritative to the other DCs. 7. and apply all other changes made since the backup to the restored DC from its replication partners. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you've seized all the required FSMO roles.Note: All five roles need to be in the forest. The default Directory Services restore mode is a nonauthoritative restoration. its replication partners send all updates that have occurred in the past 2 days. This is because a GC server holds a partial replica of every object in the forest. you could restore an AD backup to a DC. Determine which roles are to be on which remaining domain controllers so that all five roles are not on only one server 8. Windows updates the rest of the restored database by using information from the other DCs to bring the directory up-to-date. type q. . The difference between seizing a role and transferring it is that when transferring a role. the DC receives from its replication partners new information that's been processed since the backup. What is the difference between Authoritative and Non-Authoritative restoration? Although you might have several domain controllers (DCs) providing fault tolerance for your domain. 9. an organizational unit (OU). let's say we restore a DC using a 2-day-old backup. The methods of the DomainController object available for these operations are SeizeRoleOwnership and TransferRoleOwnership What is the protocol used in logon? Ans: In Windows NT NTLM 3. Note: Do not put the Infrastructure Master (IM) role on the same domain controller as the Global Catalog server.32 if controller supports 8. What is the maximum and minimum hard drive for RAID5? 3. for example. After you seize or transfer the roles. After the DC starts. 5. thereby removing any changes made since the backup. and then press ENTER until you quit the Ntdsutil tool. then overwrites all other DCs to match the restored DC. Windows will ignore the fact that the OU was previously deleted. mark the OU as authoritative. This type of restore is most useful if you deleted. You don't have to perform an authoritative restoration of the entire directory--you can choose to make only certain objects authoritative. For example. then start the DCs normally. In this mode. In this case. Windows backs up AD as part of the System State and restores the directory by booting a DC into the Directory Services restore mode. What is the difference between seizing and transferring the roles? Transferring FSMO Roles FSMO roles can be either seized or relocated to another server.0 Version used for Authendication In Windows 2000 Kerberos For Remote login Telnet 6. Then. When you restore only parts of the directory. Because you marked the OU as authoritative. you still need to perform regular backups. Windows restores a DC's directory from the backup. the domain controller that currently holds the role is still online. replicate the OU to the other DCs. If the Infrastructure Master runs on a GC server it will stop updating object information because it does not contain any references to objects that it does not hold.

because it will create unique RID database for each domain so conflicts won’t happen 11.Cluster service information Note: For Windows 2000 Server. If the server is a domain controller.using two cable we can connect same type of 2 hard disk drive for disk dupluxion (Ex: Primary Master. including the system files . and includes support for 2 way server clustering. 13. Windows 2000 Advanced Server is designed for high end mission critical platforms. Difference between windows2000 standard and advanced edition? Windows 2000 Server supports 4 processors and is designed to fill the role of typical domain controller. Windows 2000 DataCenter Server goes even further than Advanced Server in that it can support up to 32 processors. What is the difference between mirroring and duplexing? Disk Mirroring :. Secondary Master)  What are the categories of event viewer available in a DC? Application Directory Service DNS Server File Replication Service Security System 12. and other common tasks. COM+ Class Registration database . file and print server. and no more than 2 drives can be used) 10. and 32 node network load balancing. primary slave)  Disk dupluction :. FRS replicates the updated file or folder to other servers. When FRS detects that a change has been made to a file or folder within a replicated shared folder.Boot files. 14. .Certificate Services database Active Directory directory service . cascading failover among 4 nodes.9. Is it recommended that having RID master role in global catalog server and why? Yes. What are the things (files) will be backed up in system state backup? Registry . 15.SYSVOL directory . the system state data also includes the Certificate Services database (if the server is operating as a certificate server). the system state data also includes Active Directory and the Sysvol directory. application server. What is the maximum hard drive for RAID1? RAID 1 requires 2 hard disks (2 drives are required.using one cable we can connect same type of 2 hard disk drive for disk mirroring (ex: primary master. What is FRS? Ans: File Replication service (FRS) is a technology that replicates files and folders stored in the SYSVOL shared folder on domain controllers and Distributed File System (DFS) shared folders. supports 8 processors.

it is a good idea to put them on a separate volume from the operating system files to improve performance.log.ini.log file. an Edbtemp. The system then puts a dire warning on the screen prompting you to take action to free up disk space quickly before Active Directory gets corrupted. A Global Catalog server stores the partial naming context replicas in the Ntds. 18. Generally. The original Edb.dit during the initial promotion of a domain controller.log file fills up. what will be the cause assuming that physical network is working fine? Scope not activated or DHCP server not authorized in the domain If multiple scopes present activate correct scope 17.dit. This file is used to initialize the Ntds.  Schema. This is a checkpoint file. During lulls in CPU activity.log. you have certain trust relationships that are enabled by default and created automatically: a two-way transitive trust relationship between a parent domain and all child . and Edbtemp. What is default data path for Active Directory? 16. You may see more than one Edbxxxxx. It is used by the transaction logging system to mark the point at which updates are transferred from the log files to Ntds. When the Edb.  Ntds.dit.log is renamed to Edb. ESENT uses circular logging. Any changes made to objects in Active Directory are first saved to a transaction log.edb.  Temp. the pointer tells the system how far along a given set of commits had progressed before the termination. The default path is in the boot partition under \Windows\NTDS.dit database. This is a transaction log.If a client is not able to get an IP from a DHCP server. The DIT stands for Directory Information Tree. you may run into problems as you run out of drive space with online database defragmentation (compaction). What is the difference between share permission and file permission? share permissions apply to files or folders shared over the network and file permissions are used to restrict a user who is logged onto that machine. As transactions are committed. Entries that have not been committed to Ntds. Transaction log files used by the ESE engine are always 10MB.dit file on a particular domain controller contains all naming contexts hosted by that domain controller. the database engine commits the transactions into the main Ntds. This can cause Active Directory to stop working if the indexes cannot be rebuilt.log file is renamed to Edb00001. Excess log files are deleted after they have been committed.dit are kept in memory to improve performance.chk. 19. NTDS stands for NT Directory Services.log.dit during compaction. If the hard drive fills to capacity just as the system is attempting to create an Edbxxxxx. this is the main AD database. the space reserved by the Res log files is used.log.  Res1. If the system terminates abnormally. and the process starts over again. Also.log and Res2.log file is opened.log file. Is it necessary to establish trust between domains in the same forest? In Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 Active Directory. and fragmentation increases exponentially as free space diminishes. These are auxiliary transaction logs used to store changes if the main Edb. File fragmentation is a big performance thief. It is not used after that has been accomplished.  Edb.log file gets full before it can be flushed to Ntds. These are reserve log files.  Edbxxxxx.chk file.  Edb. The Ntds. the checkpoint moves forward in the Edb.dit. including the Configuration and Schema naming contexts. You should never let a volume containing Active Directory files get even close to being full. The xxxxx stands for a sequential number in hex.dit right along with the full Domain naming context for its domain. This ensures that the database can be recovered in the event of a system crash. This is a scratch pad used to store information about in-progress transactions and to hold pages pulled out of Ntds.log file if a busy domain controller has many updates pending.
