AmrelMahdy from Egypt – 08 07 2012, 7:12 AM Report Spam Dears,whats the Answer for Q17 Exam B ?? Agnostracised from United States – 08 01 2012, 12:19 PM Report Spam Question 35 Exam A and Question 29 Exam B: This site gives a good explanation of inner and outer (full) joins – http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3022713/difference-between-inner-join-full-join With the information from that website we now know that an inner join will only show the items that 'match' up but our question states "You need to ensure that all of the client computers are listed in the query results". A full join will show all of the machines but an inner join will only show the machines where the LastLogonUserName and UserName match up between the two records. A left join will show all machines and will only show users that match up, and a right join will show all users but will only show machines that match up. We can thus rule out INNER and RIGHT joins. Let's look at the results of the other two: With this info I just did a test in my production environment.FULL = 137622 resultsLEFT = 58255 results In case you can't tell, we have 58255 systems in our infrastructure and 137622 users. A FULL join shows all the records including those with empty usernames and those with empty machine names, but the LEFT join shows all the records that contain a machine name–regardless of user name. From this little test, I do believe you are right and the answer to this question should be A (LEFT). GOOD CALL! Agnostracised from United States – 08 01 2012, 12:18 PM Report Spam Question 24 Exam A and Question 22 Exam B: We know from previous MS exams not to try to "add on" to what is in the question; take it for face value. In this case they aren't saying the techs need to create apps, only deploy them. That leaves the answer as application deployment manager. Question 6 in Exam A The task "Install Software Updates" step in a TS is described as the following:Use the Install Software Updates task sequence step to install software updates to a target computer. The target computer is not evaluated for applicable software updates until this task sequence step runs. At that time, the target computer is evaluated for software updates like any other Configuration Manager 2007-managed client. In particular, the step will only install software updates that are targeted to collections of which the computer is currently a member. This makes answer C a built-in and much better solution than answer D. System from Germany – 08 01 2012, 11:30 AM Report Spam By the way my VCE is up. @ AntonioA 35: We need all computers (ensure). In my opinion and most opinions, if we have an ensure question, we do something that is often most unreasonable.Full join gives us definitely all computers with last logonuser and all users with their last logons. A left join gives us all computers, too but not all users.Once again a question of doubt. Both choices give us what we want (a full query against all computers). It is just my 2 cents as experienced examtaker, that intention is "full".But if i had to write this code i clearly would use "left" just to see the machines with their last logons. Once again, the question text doesn't explicitly say this. Hopefully more people complain about the bad quality management by taking the exam survey option. I do every time. A6: I think, it is correct. A typical split brain/answer question. The correct answer would be: add a task sequence step of software updates and set the updates as offline updates. Wuauclt.exe /detectnow uses the network stack.Don't pinpoint me, that this can't be correct because of using the network and it's indeed good to find the latest updates asap. But there is a small hint or just a feeling, that this is wrong anyways. "After the Apply Operating System Image task sequence step, add a Run Command line…" At this timepoint we have a network security risk by the missing software updates, if they weren't applied first.If you want to change the question, take A,C and D. A24: Very sure, this is correct. It is the way, Microsoft is telling us facts, that are good for nothing. Most often the text has a break and the real question begins after the break. If you have experience with case studies, take those questions as small ones. All that matters is what Microsoft want us to do in the last paragraph. But indeed there is always room for interpretation. Antonio from Spain – 07 31 2012, 10:33 PM Report Spam Question 24 Exam A and Question 22 Exam B:It depends on the deploy means, I want to say:If you have to create the application before the answer should be A (Application Administrator).If you only should be deployed without creating any application the answer is B (Application Deployment Manager). Antonio from Spain – 07 31 2012, 10:23 PM Report Spam Question 6 in Exam AI think the D answer is more correct than answer C.wuaaclt.exe /detect is the command to force new detection updates. Antonio from Spain – 07 31 2012, 10:16 PM Report Spam Question 35 Exam A and Question 29 Exam B:I think the answer is A, answer B because is not obtained the expected results. System from Germany – 07 31 2012, 6:01 PM Report Spam Do you mean this : The Client Status node in the Configuration Manager console shows a downward trend in client health. This is one of my untouched questions in the upcoming vce. Question is, how can a client health be bad anyways?Most reasonable answer: Client doesn't respond at heartbeat time to correct site. And for health trend: more bad clients than previous heartbeat. If you change the boundary group within an heartbeat interval, a good chance will be that clients respond to wrong sites or doesn't respond at all. But to be honest I'm puzzled by this question.I can construct a scenario for every answer choice to be a culprit of health downward trend. That is all which technet provides us with:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb693646.aspxhttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682128.aspxhttp://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrteam/archive/2011/05/03/client-health-in-configuration-manager-2012-beta-2.aspx If you find a reasonable explanation, which answers are more likely, feel free to tell us. Parrot from Belgium – 07 31 2012, 2:29 PM Report Spam Hi, I have a doubt on question 11 in exam A. I think option A more applicable than D Any ideas ? Thanks a lot Agnostracised from United States – 07 31 2012, 12:44 PM Report Spam Will do, System! Agnostracised from United States – 07 31 2012, 12:44 PM Report Spam Finished going over Exam A. There are certainly some questionable answers but the ones that stood out to me as blatantly wrong I have posted previously. I didn't call out any answers unless I was able to definitively prove otherwise. I should probably just buy the editor license and just change these myself Thanks goes out to GoodGuy for filling out Exam B and for fixing a few errors on Exam A! System from Germany – 07 31 2012, 12:20 PM Report Spam Hey Agnostracised , i have already found the culprits, you have mentioned.But anyways good to see them here in the comments and clearing the mess.My reviewed VCE is on the way. There are some other things, i have changed.If you have time, please look at my vce and my comments. Agnostracised from United States – 07 31 2012, 12:11 PM Report Spam Exam A, Q30:Enable CM to gather data about printersCurrent answer is "Add a WMI class to the hardware inventory classes list". While the wording on this is right, the answer "Enable a default WMI class in the hardware inventory classes list" is a better answer because the printers WMI class is a default class in the hardware inventory classes list. You don't have to manually add this WMI class as is assumed by the current answer. Further evidence is Exam A, Q31 which speaks of a CUSTOM hardware device and the answer is to add the WMI class instead of enable a default. Exam A, Q38:Which tools can be used to create and publish custom reports to SSRSCurrent answer is just report builder, however MS SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio can also be used for this function. Exam A, Q43:Steps to deploy an exported baseline to production environment serversCurrent answer is ACD but I don't believe A should have any bearing on the answer. Categorizing the baseline as 'server' is merely for the ability to quickly sort baselines and provides no function on deploying the baseline to a collection of servers. Agnostracised from United States – 07 30 2012, 12:37 PM Report Spam Exam A, Q12:Identify if there is a replication issue between two SCCM sites.Current answer is "Microsoft SQL Server replication diagnostic files".This is wrong. Per SCCM log page (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427342.aspx) rcmctrl.log "Records the activities of database replication between sites in the hierarchy." Agnostracised from United States – 07 30 2012, 12:35 PM Report Spam Exam A, Q21:Need to identify log file used to determine if 2 database servers–not SCCM databases–that helps figure out why the two servers aren't reporting configuration information from a deployed baseline.Current answer is "Sitestat.log". This is wrong because sitestat.log is an SCCM SERVER log and we are looking for a CLIENT log that has this information.MS webpage about the logs for SCCM (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427342.aspx) shows that dcmagent.log is used for the following: Records high-level information about the evaluation, conflict reporting, and remediation of configuration items and applications.. Agnostracised from United States – 07 30 2012, 12:27 PM Report Spam Exam A, Q40:Creating a CI and need to detect if Office 2010 is installed.The current answer is set to "Create a query-based collection", but with this being a MS product that has an MSI file being installed then I believe the correct answer would be "Enable Use Windows Installer detection" (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712331#BKMK_Step3) Furthermore, the question states to detect it BEFORE validating the CI. Deploying to a query-based collection works after-the-fact but isn't built-in to the CI itself. Agnostracised from United States – 07 30 2012, 12:17 PM Report Spam Just finished going over Exam B. Looks very solid. With the exception of Q17 which I mentioned previously and maybe 1 other question I believe Exam B to be spot on. I'll be going over Exam A shortly to see if some of the problems I saw earlier have been fixed. Agnostracised from United States – 07 30 2012, 12:07 PM Report Spam Exam B, Q17:Identify which tools can be used to create and publish custom SRSS reports.Answer is C – Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio.
