Microsoft - 70-743: Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA: Windows Server 2016

Sample Questions

Question: 529
Measured Skill: Implement Domain Name System (DNS)

You have a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2016 and is configured as a domain controller.

You install the DNS Server server role on Server1.

You plan to store a DNS zone in a custom Active Directory partition. You need to create a new Active Directory partition for the zone.

What should you use?

B Dns.exe
C Ntdsutil.exe
D Active Directory Administrative Center

Correct answer: C


You can use dnscmd.exe or ntdsutil.exe to create a new custom Active Directory partition.

Use ntdsutil.exe to create an Active Directory partition

  1. On a DC (or a domain member with the Remote Server Administration Tools pack installed), open an elevated command prompt.

  2. Type ntdsutil.

  3. At the Ntdsutil prompt, type domain management in Windows Server 2003 or partition management in later versions.

  4. At the Domain management or Partition management prompt, type connections.

  5. At the Connections prompt, type connect to server <server>.
    • <server> : the name of a DC in the domain. This does not have to be the DC on which the directory partition will be created.

  6. Type quit once to exit the Connections prompt.

  7. Type create nc <partition_dn> <dc_fqdn>.
    • <partition_dn> : The distinguished name (DN) of the application directory partition. This DN will determine where in Active Directory the partition will reside.
      • Example: A partition named DC=TestPartition,DC=mydomain,DC=com will have the common name TestPartition and reside inside the domain.

    • <dc_fqdn> : The DNS FQDN of the DC on which the partition will be created.

  8. Type quit at each prompt until you have exited Ntdsutil.
Note: An application partition created using this method will not be registered in DNS immediately. Therefore, it will not be visible in the DNS console, and dnscmd commands targeted at it will return "DNS_ERROR_DP_DOES_NOT_EXIST" errors until its DNS registration is complete. Registration will typically occur within several minutes.

Question: 530
Measured Skill: Implement IP Address Management (IPAM)

You have a DHCP server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2016. Server1 has the scopes configured as shown in the following table.

All other scope settings are set to the default values. There is no available address space for another scope to be created.

Your network has 150 desktop computers that have access to the corporate network. Your company also provides visitors with WI-FI access to the network. There can be up to 200 visitors each day.

You discover that some visitors fail to access the WI-FI network because there are no available addresses to allocate to the visitors.

You need to prevent this issue from reoccurring.

What should you do?

AFor the Visitors scope, run the Dhcp Split Configuration Wizard.
B Run Set-DhcpServerv4Scope -ActivatePolicies $True -Name Visitors -MaxBootPClients 200.
C Configure a superscope that contains the Visitors scope.
D Run Set-DhcpServerv4Scope -Name Visitors -LeaseDuration 0.02:00:00.

Correct answer: D


The default IP address lease duration for DHCP clients is 8 days. An assigned IP address is reserved for the respective client for 8 days by the DHCP server. Also, if the client is connected to the Wi-Fi network for only one hour, the address can not be assigned to another client during these 8 days.

By reducing the lease duration, assigned IP addresses are available to the DHCP server more quickly and can be reassigned to other clients.

Question: 531
Measured Skill: Implement IP Address Management (IPAM)

Note: This question is part of a series of questions that use the same or similar answer choices. An answer choice may be correct for more than one question in the series. Each question is independent of the other questions in this series. Information and details in a question apply only to that question.

Your network contains an Active Directory domain named The domain contains a server named Server2 that runs Windows Server 2016.

The DHCP Server server role is installed on Server2. The DNS server role is installed on a server named Server3.

The network contains 500 non-Windows devices that are registered in the DNS zone of

You configure Server2 to lease IP addresses to the non-Windows devices.

You need to prevent Server2 from overwriting the host (A) records for the non-Windows devices.

What should you run?

(The help text contains additional answer choices.)

B dns.exe
C dnscmd.exe
D netsh.exe
E Set-DhcpServerDatabase
F Set-DhcpServerv4DnsSetting

Correct answer: F


In the event that a DNS client does not support dynamically updating its IP address received through DHCP in the DNS zone, the update of the DNS zone entry is inherited by the DHCP server by default:

We can disable dynamic DNS updates either in the GUI or by using the following command:

Set-DhcpServerv4DnsSetting -ComputerName "" -DynamicUpdates "Never"

Reference: Set-DhcpServerv4DnsSetting

Question: 532
Measured Skill: Implement network connectivity and remote access solutions

You are configuring the network for a small branch office. Currently, the branch office does not connect directly to the Internet.

In the branch office, you deploy a new server named Server1 that has a server Core installation of Windows Server 2016. Server1 has two network adapters configured as shown in the following table.

You plan to use Server1 to provide Internet connectivity for the branch office.

Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) in installed and configured for VPN remote access on Server1.

You need to configure RRAS on Server1 to provide network address translation (NAT).

Which command or cmdlet should you use first?

ANetsh.exe routing ip nat install
B New-NetNat NAT1 -ExternalIPInterfaceAddressPrefix
C Route.exe add metric 1
D Enable-NetNatTranstionConfiguration

Correct answer: A


The Netsh.exe routing ip nat install command adds the NAT protocol to the configuration of the Routing and Remote Access service. After the protocol is installed, the network address translation can be configured.

Question: 533
Measured Skill: Implement IP Address Management (IPAM)

You are an administrator for a company. You have a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2016.

Server1 is an IP Address Management (IPAM) server that collects DHCP and DNS logs and events for your entire network.

You need to enable a user named TECH1 to create pointer (PTR), host (A) and service location (SRV) records on all of the DNS servers on the network.

What should you do on Server1?

ARun the Set-IpamRange cmdlet, and then run the Set-IpamAddressSpace cmdlet.
B Run the Set-IpamCustomField cmdlet, and then run the Set-IpamAccessScope cmdlet.
C From the IPAM node in Server Manager, assign the DNS Record Administrator Role to TECH1 and create a new access policy.
D From the IPAM node in Server Manager, assign the IPAM DNS Administrator Role to TECH1 and create a new access scope.

Correct answer: C


The DNS Record Administrator Role allows TECH1 to create pointer (PTR), host (A) and service location (SRV) records.
