    Hmmm, tricky one right enough, AJ ...

    I'll go D also, as it would be fair to assume 2003 is using NTFS5 unlike the NT4 server, and that can goose around with attributes, etc, so prob none of your choices cover what could happen...I think....wtf ?? :scratch

    I guess the question is a bit tricky. If I'm not wrong then we're just backing up data from a Windows Server 2003 NTFS volume n the destination of the Backup File is a NT4 NTFS volume or for that matter it can even be FAT32 or a CDFS volume.
    So I'll go with B

    P.S. Its not specified that we are Restoring back up data from a Windows Server 2003 NTFS volume to a NT4 NTFS volume. :blink Hence it is safe to conclude that we're just backing up data n the destination of the Backup File is a NT4 NTFS volume.

    My choice for this is C.

    As it stands the question does not state what condition the NT4 system is regarding service packs. If I remember rightly for NT4 to do the same with Win2K it needs SP5 or greater, so I assume it needs the same for 2K3 too.

    Hmmm, me thinks I could be up for some abuse for this one but here goes


    Correct answer is: A

    Explanation: You can use NTBackup to back up and restore data on FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS partitions. However, if NTFS is used, it is recommended that you restore the data to an NTFS volume of the same version to prevent losing data.


    Ok I know that I didn't say that the NTFS version were different but then again I didn't say they were diferent either.

    I shall post the next QOTD next tuesday :biggrin

    Fair enough, AJ - I can accept that.

    For those studying for MS exams, I think it would be fair to say that that is exactly the sort of ambiguity you can expect from some of the questions, although there would almost certainly be even the tiniest hint towards what area was being examined, eg NTFS version or more likely, in this case it may have been from a 2003 server to a w2k server (aka, both NTFS5). In that instance, the question would be examining basic backup technique, but also file system compatibility.

    Nice work as always, AJ - got us all thinking again :thumbleft

    Cheers Gav, you are right of course, I should have gave a bit more but there you go, that was the question like it or not.


    @ Bull - deff not cheating mate, you can backup data from one machine and put the backup set onto another machine as part of the backup process, so long as you have the rights to access that machine. You are not restoring the data just putting it onto another machine, even though it has got a different operating system.

    HTH

    EDIT: Sorry Bull just re-read my answer. I did mention restoring an perhaps I should have re-phrased that better. But the explaination still stands as does my above comments. Sorry if I confused anyone, but there you go - blame M$ I say
