Shadow Copies is a file-based fault tolerance mechanism that provides protection against disk failures.
False
The servers that you intend to add to an NLB cluster must have dynamic IP addresses.
False
In a pure failover cluster, you can have two instances of an application accessing the same data at the same time.
False
In network load balancing, all servers in the cluster are operational and able to service clients.
True
You can implement Shadow Copies only for an entire volume; you cannot select specific shares, folders, or files.
True
To use Shadow Copies effectively, where must users store their files? 
server
Which of the following features can be used to automate the Shadow Copy process?
File Redirection
Regardless of how much space you allocate to the storage area, Windows Server 2008 supports a maximum of __________ shadow copies for each volume.
64
To protect workstation applications and ensure their continued availability, what feature should be used to run them?
Terminal Services
Which component in Windows Server 2008 enables the system to install software packaged as files with an .msi extension?
Windows Installer 4.0
What is the term for the ability of entire servers to be redundant so that if anything goes wrong with one computer, another one can take its place almost immediately?
failover
Which version of Windows Server 2008 must computers be running to create a failover cluster?
Enterprise
Which of the following holds the failover cluster configuration database?
witness disk
A maximum of __________ nodes can be added to a cluster if computers are running on the x86 or IA64 platform.
 8
How many consecutive heartbeats must fail before convergence occurs?
3
Which role service maintains a database of client sessions and enables a disconnected client to reconnect to the same terminal server?
Session Broker
Which of the following is part of the recommended hardware environment for a failover cluster?
all of the above
Clients connecting to a terminal server farm must run the minimum version of Remote Desktop Connection (RDC), which is __________.
5.2
Which technique creates multiple resource records using the same name, with a different server IP address in each record?
DNS round robin
Which of the following is the simplest form of disk redundancy?
disk mirroring
Besides application data, which of the following is stored on a failover cluster’s shared storage?
witness disk
Which RAID level provides the largest percentage of usable disk space?
RAID 5
What is the most commonly used high-availability solution for data storage, primarily because it is far more scalable than disk mirroring and enables you realize more storage space from your hard disks?
parity-based RAID
Which mechanism allows users to work with copies of files that remain accessible whether the workstation can access the server or not?
Offline Files
In which operating system is the Previous Versions Client not available by default?
Windows XP Service Pack 1
A(n) __________ cluster is a logical entity that exists on the network, containing its own name and IP address just like a physical computer.
failover
Servers in an NLB cluster continually exchange status messages with each other, which are known as __________.
heartbeats
Shadow copies are __________-based.
block
To balance the initial connection traffic among terminal servers, you can use a(n) __________ cluster.
NLB
Like a failover cluster, the NLB cluster itself is a logical entity with its own name and IP address. Clients connect to the __________ rather than to individual computers.
cluster
You can implement Shadow Copies only for an entire __________; you cannot select specific shares, folders, or files.
volume
Network __________  Balancing is more appropriate for applications that have their own data stores, such as Web servers.
Load
You must install the Network Load Balancing feature on each __________ before adding it to a cluster.
server
__________-based RAID is the most commonly used high-availability solution for data storage, primarily because it is far more scalable than disk mirroring and enables you to realize more storage space from your hard disks.
Parity
__________-based RAID is the most commonly used high-availability solution for data storage, primarily because it is far more scalable than disk mirroring and enables you to realize more storage space from your hard disks.
