1) 1 Which storage media type is most commonly selected if cost effectiveness, large capacity, and transportability are the key factors being considered during implementation of a backup scheme? digital tape solid-state storage optical media discs storage area networks network-attached storage 2 For the assignment of permissions to files and folders, what does the "principle of least privilege" imply? No user has more privileges than any other user. Permissions to files are given based on seniority. Users only have access to resources that are necessary for their jobs. Users should be given no access to computer resources until they ask. 3

Refer to the exhibit. Which type of link is supported by this interface module? LAN WAN WLAN VLAN 4 When customers use credit cards to make purchases at a small business, a modem is heard dialing a telephone number to transfer the transaction data to the central office. What type of WAN serial connection is in use? leased line packet switched circuit switched point-to-point 5 A building has experienced a power outage. When the power returns, none of the devices on one floor can access the Internet. The network administrator checks the switch in the IDF that these devices are connected to and notes that the SYST LED on the front of the switch is amber. What is a possible cause of this problem? The switch is functioning properly. The switch has failed POST. The switch configuration file was not saved to NVRAM. The connection between the switch and the server did not autonegotiate speed and duplex properly. 6 A user reports being unable to access the Internet. The help desk technician employs a bottom-up approach to troubleshooting. The technician first has the user check the patch cable connection from the PC to the wall, and then has the user verify that the NIC has a green link light. What will the technician have the user do next? Enter an IP address into the WWW browser address bar to see if DNS is at fault. Use traceroute to identify the device along the path to the ISP that may be at fault. Verify the IP address, subnet, and gateway settings using ipconfig on the PC.

Based on the output of the show running-config command on router RTB. The technician entered the command erase startup-config before reloading the router. What must the technician know before initiating the transfer? the IP address of the TFTP server and the name of the configuration file on the server the operating system of the TFTP server and the IP address of the connected router interface the IP address of the TFTP server and the name of the configuration file in NVRAM of the router the name of the configuration file on the router and the IP address of the interface that is connected to the TFTP server 19 The command copy tftp running-config has been entered on the router. The technician failed to enter the command copy running-config startup-config before reloading the router. 17 At which layer of the OSI model is the Ethernet family of technologies defined? Layer 1 Layer 2 Layer 3 Layer 4 Layer 5 Layer 6 Layer 7 18 A network technician wants to load a configuration file from a TFTP server to a router. but the connection is failing. A user who is connected to RTA is trying to telnet to RTB.Is there a firewall that is configured on the PC? Is there a link light on the network card? What addresses are configured in the TCP/IP settings? 14 What is the purpose of a DMZ? It analyzes traffic for intrusion attempts and sends reports to management stations. After restoring the file from the TFTP server. A session limit has not been configured for Telnet. What will this command do? copy the configuration in RAM to a server . The technician entered the command boot system rom before reloading the router. 15 Refer to the exhibit. No password has been configured on the VTY lines. It creates an encrypted and authenticated tunnel for remote hosts to access the internal network. The login command has not been issued on the console line. It provides secure connectivity for clients that connect to the internal network through a wireless LAN. why is the Telnet session failing? Telnet has not been configured on the console line. the technician reloads the router and finds that it still has the old configuration file instead of the restored file. It allows external hosts to access specific company servers while maintaining the security restrictions for the internal network.
