Hi there!

First of all, you can still become MCSA with the exams you have already passed. However, this is the old 2003 track and considering the fact that a new Server will be released next year (meaning that even Server 2008 will be outdated soon), I would strongly advise to upgrade as soon as you have passed MCSA. There is no need to complete an MCSE nowadays.

SCCM 2012 will also be released soon as far as I know. So there is a big possibility that one or more related exams will also be released. However, you can select the equivalent SCCM 2007 exam 70-401 for your MCSA track as an elective choice.

In addition, I recommend taking exam 70-680 (Windows 7 Configuring) as your client core exam. Makes no sense to choose XP or Windows Vista instead ^^

So your MCSA track might look like this: 70-680, 70-290, 70-291 and 70-401

As soon as you've reached MCSA, I would strongly suggest to take an upgrade path to 2008 - in that case taking upgrade exam 70-648. Might even be a possible way to wait for the new Server related exams that will surely be released next year. There is a chance that you will might even be able to upgrade by then and therefore skipping upgrading to 2008. But that's just an assumption.

Good luck & regards,
Charger

You have been told that you need to track down the source of a breach in network security. As a network technician for your company's Windows 2000 network you quickly pull up Event Viewer and examine the security logs on the Domain Controllers. However upon viewing the security log you notice there are key and lock icon symbols you do not understand. What could these mean?
1. The key icon represents that this event is locked with a normal password while the lock icon represents that this event is locked with an encryption.
2. The key icon represents that the event is a key alert record while the lock icon indicates that this event can only be unlocked by its owner.
3. The key icon represents that the event occurred successfully while the lock icon represents event occurred unsuccessfully.
4. The key icon represents that this event contains errors, warnings, or vital information while the lock icon represents that this event is normal and within guidelines.

As a network administrator you have been requested to move a printer from your company's Marketing OU to your company's Research OU. After the move you test the printer and find that the local administrator assigned to the Marketing OU still has access and can remove print jobs from it. What can you do to change this?
1. Remove the permissions for the local administrator from the printer.
2. Remove printer permissions from the local administrator.
3. Remove the everyone group from the printer.
4. Delete the printer object.

You recently been promoted to Network Administrator for DLM Shipping. When you took over this position the first thing you notice is this Windows 2000 environment using DNS naming convention, root domain is DIM.COM, with numerous child domains. User accounts are stored in the child domains. However your supervisor informs you that root domain is misspelled and should be DLM.COM. He explains this is causing tremendous problems with the users and customers. He wants you to rename the domain. What will happen if you rename this root domain server?
1. When you rename the root domain server you will only have to rebuild the user accounts since the root domain holds the authentication (SAM) database.
2. When you rename the root domain server you will simply rename the child domain also.
3. When you rename the root domain server you will lose the entire network orphaning the child domains.
4. When you rename the root domain server you will not need to do anything else since domain names are inherited the child domains will acquire the new domain name.
