Some doubts about NT and win2k

by RCC In reply to Some doubts about NT and ...

1. Boot files take precedence over the system ones. Basically, everything that refers to boot loads and affects everything that happens before system. As a matter of fact, boot files (subsystem) will load the system (OS, in this case:winNT). If youare refering to devices, state so and we can give you more details.You need to be abit familiar with NT OS structure...
2. This ,essage regards licensing. You can have per server or per seat licensing. For more details see http://www.microsoft.com/TechNet/winnt/Winntas/manuals/concept/xcp12.asp
What to do? Igone it or adjust it as per your requirements using Licence Manager in Control Pannel
3.Exchange server is a full messageing system with groupware tools integrated. It will allow you to setup local e-mail,as well as internet e-mail, to stream-flow applications and to enable exchange of data between clients. For more informations, look at http://www.microsoft.com/exchange/ . You will find all the information you need.

4. Yes you cand, but is not necessary. When the PDC fails, BDC will hold the domain up (authenticate clients, allow access to resources, and so on). The problem is that BDC only has a read-only copy of SAM (which is your user and domain resourcesaccounts database). You cannot add users while only the BDC is up. If you think the PDC is faulty and you cannot recover, you can promote BDC to PDC, but you can't re-use your PDC again (you will have to re-install windows NT). If you think PDC could be fixed, run only with the BDC until then. If you want more details, let me know.
5. If Win2k server fails (I assume you're talking about a D C- domain controller), nothing really happens, except that resources from that server will not be availaible (printers and shares). WIN2K has only peer domain controlers, there is no BDC or PDC. That means that you can carry on and add user and resource accounts on any other domain controller (unlike NT4).
I hope this answers your 5 30 points questions..:))
