Your network includes two Windows Server 2016 computers named Server1 and Server2.
You implement storage replication to replicate the contents of a volume from Server1 to Server2.

You must ensure that the bandwidth for replication traffic is limited to 100 Mbps.

What cmdlet are you running?

Answer: New-NetQosPolicy


Your network includes an Active Directory domain services (AD DS) domain named cybercop-training.ch. The domain contains two servers named Server1 and Server2. Both servers are running Windows Server 2016. The domain contains three users named User1, User2, and User3.

Server1 hosts a share named Share1. The configuration of the share is shown below:

The release authorizations for Release1 are shown in the following figure:

Share1 contains a file named File1.txt. The advanced security settings of the file are shown in the following figure:

Which of the following statements is correct:

If user1 opens the path \\Server1\Share1, he can take ownership of file1.txt: No
If user2 opens the path \\Server1\Share1, he can see file1.txt: Yes
When user3 opens the path \\Server1\Share1, he can see file1.txt: No

Explanation:

User1 has the NTFS permissions Full access to file1.txt. He could take ownership of File1.txt if he accessed the file locally. When it accesses the share over the network, the permissions are restricted by the share permissions.

For Share1, the access based enumeration is enabled (FolderEnumerationMode = AccessBased). To be able to display content, users require read permissions. User2 can display file1.txt. User3 cannot display file1.txt.


Your network includes two servers called Server1 and Server2. Both servers are running Windows Server 2016.

You implement storage replication to replicate the contents of a volume from Server1 to Server2.

You must ensure that the bandwidth for replication traffic is limited to 100 Mbps.

What cmdlet are you running?

Answer: Set-NetQosPolicy


Your network includes multiple Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V servers. The Hyper-V hosts provide 50 Web servers, 10 Microsoft SQL Server servers, 10 file servers, and eight domain controllers.

You must implement a backup strategy that meets the following requirements:

  • All servers must be backed up.
  • Application-level backups must be performed.
  • Application-level backups must be centralized.
  • Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) backups must be supported.

What do you use?

Answer: Microsoft Azure Backup Server

You create a hyperconvergent Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) failover cluster. The cluster consists of three nodes and a Storage Spaces Direct volume with a capacity of 1 terabyte (TB).

The cluster is designed to store multiple virtual machines (VMs).

You plan to expand the volume by an additional 3 TB.

What is the minimum amount of additional storage required to expand the volume?

Answer: 3TB on each node


Your network includes a server called Server1. Server1 has the Windows Server 2016 operating system installed.

You plan to create a new volume on Server1. The volume is to be named Volume1 and used to store image files.

You must select the file system and cluster size for Volume1. Your solution must ensure that the image files are compressed by the file system compression.

What file system and cluster size do you choose for Volume1?

Answer: Filesystem: NTFS / Clustersize: 4kb

Explanation: Compression by the file system is supported only by the NTFS file system. File system compression is not supported by FAT32 or ReFS.

By default, the maximum default cluster size for NTFS under Windows NT 4.0 and later is 4 KB. The reason for this is that NTFS file compression is not possible on drives with a larger map size. Therefore, formatting will only use clusters larger than 4 KB if the user explicitly overrides the default settings.


Your network includes a server called Server1. Server1 has the Windows Server 2016 operating system installed.

You open the command prompt on Server1 and perform the following commands:

You create a backup of the data on disk 1.

You plan to convert volume 1 to a GPT volume and then restore the backed up data.

What four Diskpart commands do you run in order before you restore the data?

Answer: clean, convert gpt, create partition=primary, format fs=ntfs quick


Your network includes a Hyper-V host called Server1. Server1 has the Windows Server 2016 operating system installed.

Server1 hosts a virtual machine (VM) called VM1. VM1 runs Windows Server 2016.

The virtual machine uses virtual hard disks as data storage.

The disk configuration of VM1 is shown below:

You must increase the capacity of Volume D: to 400 GB.

What PowerShell cmdlets do you run on Server1 and VM1?

Answer: Execute on Server1 Resize-VHD / Execute on VM1 Resize-Partition


Your network includes a virtual machine called Server1. From Server1, the Windows Server 2016 operating system is installed. The server hosts the following file shares:

You must ensure that each user can store a maximum of 10 GB of data in the share \\Server1\User.

How do you proceed?

Answer: Install the role service „Resource Manager for File Servers“ and create a quota.


Your network includes a Windows Server 2016 computer named Server1. Server1 has four SCSI hard disks and is configured with a storage pool called Pool1 that contains three hard disks.

You create a virtual disk with the Mirror resilience type. Then create a partition on the disk named Partition1 that occupies all of the disk space.

You must enlarge Partition1.

What is your first step?

Answer: Use the Storage Pools page in Server Manager and expand a virtual disk.


Your network includes a server called Server1. Server1 has the Windows Server 2016 operating system installed.

You create a storage pool called Pool1. Pool1 consists of three disks.

You must create a two-way mirrored space in Pool1.

What command are you running?

Answer: New-VirtualDisk -StoragePoolFriendlyName Pool1 -FriendlyName Space1 -UseMaximumSize -ResiliencySettingName Mirror -NumberOfDataCopies 2 -NumberOfColumns 1

Example: Creating a two-column mirror
This example creates a thinly provisioned virtual disk in the storage spaces subsystem that uses two columns regardless of how many physical disks are in the storage pool.

New-VirtualDisk -StoragePoolFriendlyName CompanyData -FriendlyName BusinessCritical -ResiliencySettingName Mirror -Size 42TB -ProvisioningType Thin -NumberOfColumns 2

Info: To create the virtual disk with two-way mirroring and two columns, at least four physical disks are required.
