Microsoft 70-411 Exam – Q3

Your network contains an Active Directory domain named The domain contains a member server named Server1. Server1 has the Web Server (IIS) server role installed. On Server1, you install a managed service account named Service1. You attempt to configure the World Wide Web Publishing Service as shown in the exhibit.

You receive the following error message: “The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified.” You need to ensure that the World Wide Web Publishing Service can log on by using the managed service account.

What should you do?

A. Specify contoso\service1$ as the account name.
B. Specify as the account name.
C. Reset the password for the account.
D. Enter and confirm the password for the account.

Correct Answer: A

If you are going to use the gMSA for a Service, an IIS Application Pool, or SQL 2012, you would simply plug it in the Logon/Credentials UI. The trick is to append a $ after the account name, and leave the password blank.
