This question is driving me crazy. Everyone says answer is C but its talking about subnets not external routes. Even in a campus environment where different lans/subnets/vlans are separated by routers they wouldn't need a default route to each other because they would be communicating directly through OSPF or other routing protocol. Changing the subnet from a /24 to a /8 would resolve the issue. Anyone agree/disagree?

Exam C Q1
Your network contains a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2008 R2. The network contains multiple subnets.
An administrator reports that Server1 fails to communicate with computers on remote subnets. You run route.exe print on Server1 as shown in the exhibit. (Refer to the Exhibit.)

You need to ensure that Server1 can communicate with all computers on the network. What should you do?
A.
Disable IPv6.
B.
Change the subnet mask.
C.
Add a default gateway address.
D.
Change the default metric to 100.

This dump is still currently valid in the UK, passed yesterday with 825. There are definitely errors, as I verified with an Ensurepass dump as well. One that springs to mind is with WSUS. You need to sync it FIRST, then select classifications and then approve.

I had two new questions, one on backup and one on Group Policy for updates. A point and shoot question regarding Quick Mode and Main Mode is now more specific, you need to know the subfolder for the info you require.

Exam A, Q22:
Your network contains a server named DC1 that has the DHCP Server server role installed.

DC1 has a DHCP scope for the 10.10.10.0/24 network ID.
You discover the following warning message in the Event log on DC1: "Scope, Scope1, is 98 percent full with only two IP addresses remaining."

You need to ensure that DC1 has enough IP addresses to assign to clients. The solution must not cause any IP conflicts.
What should you do?

Correct answer(s): D
I is not correct because you should DECREASE the database cleanup interval, the other options to solve the problem are to reduce lease times
(but this option is not present), or to extend the scope. So, as the question states that there are only 2 IP addresses and the scope is 98% full,
the scope has only 100 addresses. For this reason the only option available is to modify the start address.

Just took this exam today 7th March 2014 and FINALLY passed it with a score of 850.

As mentioned in some of the earlier comments, I did scrutinise some(not a lot) of the answers myself and I think that's what anyone who thinks an answer is wrong should do. Did further reading/research myself into those ones and got my answers.

The questions are still valid nonetheless so thankyou very much for this. The "drag and drop" and "ports" exams were very helpful as well :)

@Bogdan, yes you are right with your answers. Also see Exam F Q34 & Q35, correct answer for LDAP is port 389 & 636. This dump's questions are right but a lot of the answers are wrong. I suggest you search the answer for every question or buy the proper material from ensurepass.com I used ensurepass and passed this week.

Your network contains an Active Directory domain named contoso.com. The domain contains two DNS servers named DC1 and Server1. DC1 is a domain controller. Server1 is member server.

On Server1, you create a primary zone named fabrikam.com.

You need to create a copy of the fabrikam.com zone on DC1.

What should you do? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)
A Create a new secondary zone on DC1.
B Run the New Delegation Wizard on DC1.
C Create a new Active Directory-integrated stub zone on DC1.
D Run the New Delegation Wizard on Server1.
E Modify the Name Servers list for the fabrikam.com zone.
F Modify the start of authority (SOA) record of the fabrikam.com zone.

WHY RUN THE NEW DELEGATION WIZARDS?
NO EXPLANATIONS...

WHY NOT A AND E ?

Your network contains an Active Directory Domain. The domain contains DNS servers that run Windows Server 2008 R2. The network has two external links. One link connects to the internet.

The other link directly connects to the network of a partner company. The partner companys network is not connected to the internet. You need to ensure that users on your network can access resources on the partner companys network. The solution must ensure that the users on your network can continue to access resources on the internet. Which two actions should you perform on the DNS Servers? (Each correct answer presents a complete solution)

A. Configure Conditional forwarding
B. Add a stub Zone
C. Modify the root hints
D. Add a reverse lookup zone
E. Add a trust anchor

The dump suggests it is AC when in fact it is AB. Any suggestions ?

Exam A Q31 is wrong.
Your network contains ...Server 1 has the WSUS role installed. Server1 downloads updates from Microsoft Update every day... On the test network you implement a WSUS server names Server2.... You need to ensure that Server2 can distribute the same updates as Server1.

Choose 3:
A) On Server2, run wsusutil and specify IMPORT
B) On Server1, run wsusutil and specify EXPORT
C) On Server2, restore the system state
D) On Server1, backup the system state
E) Copy the WSUSContent folder from Server1 to Server2

Answer given is A,B,C but I think it should be A,B,E

Exam E, Q50:
Your network contains a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. A user named Admin1 opens Event Viewer on Server1 as shown in the exhibit. Admin1 can view the events in Application log and the System log. You need to ensure that Admin1 can view events in the Security log. What should you modify?

I am not sure about this, but I think that correct answer is D: (not A:): the permissions on the Security.evtx file.
Any thoughts guys?

Your network contains a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2008 R2 Service pack1 (SP1). Server1 has Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 and the File Services server role installed.

You need to log the CPU utilization of the processes running on Server1 if the CPU utilization exceeds 85 percent for more than one minute.
What should you do? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)
A.
Configure an action on the performance alert to run the systempropertiesperformance.exe command.
B.
Create a Data Collector Set that has a performance alert to run the \Processor (_Total)\%Processor Time.
C.
Enable the SQMLogger event trace session.
D.
Create a scheduled task that runs the Get-PSProvider cmdlet.
E.
Configure a trigger on the performance alert to start the System Performance Data Collector Set.


I would say that correct answers are B and E(and not A and B as in the dump) Any thoughts ?

The dump is still valid. Had exam today and passed with 900. Know the port numbers and look in to the technet.microsoft website for explanations. Any way the dump is good for passing the exam with the lowest score. In the dump are about 5-6 questions with wrong answers, but if you know the stuff you will pass the exam!!! Any way the dump is good to pass with minimum score. ;) ;)
