Microsoft 70-411 Exam – Q31

Your network contains an Active Directory domain named All servers run Windows Server 2012 R2. The functional level of both the domain and the forest is Windows Server 2008 R2. The domain contains a domain-based Distributed File System (DFS) namespace that is configured as shown in the exhibit.

You need to enable access-based enumeration on the DFS namespace.
What should you do first?

A. Raise the domain functional level.
B. Raise the forest functional level.
C. Install the File Server Resource Manager role service on Server3 and Server5.
D. Delete and recreate the namespace.

Correct Answer: D

Access-based enumeration hides files and folders that users do not have permission to access. By default, this feature is not enabled for DFS namespaces. You can enable access-based enumeration of DFS folders by using DFS Management. To control access-based enumeration of files and folders in folder targets, you must enable access-based enumeration on each shared folder by using Share and Storage Management.

To enable access-based enumeration on a namespace, all namespace servers must be running Windows Server 2008 or newer. Additionally, domain based namespaces must use the Windows Server 2008 mode.

If you upgrade the domain functional level to Windows Server 2008 while there are existing domain-based namespaces, DFS Management will allow you to enable access-based enumeration on these namespaces. However, you will not be able to edit permissions to hide folders from any groups or users unless you migrate the namespaces to the Windows Server 2008 mode. For more information, see Migrate a Domain-based Namespace to Windows Server 2008 Mode.

To migrate a domain-based namespace from Windows 2000 Server mode to Windows Server 2008 mode, you must export the namespace to a file, delete the namespace, recreate it in Windows Server 2008 mode, and then import the namespace settings.
