On both the PDF and the mobi versions we read the following statement: 100 GB of hard disk space (25 GB for each of hree virtual machines plus 25 GB for the base system). There's a missing "t". It should be: 100 GB of hard disk space (25 GB for each of three virtual machines plus 25 GB for the base system).

Page Intro
P2.1.3. Lab Setup Instructions

I understand that you don't want to get into a whole discussion regarding virtualization. However, you should note that, when you build VMs using the defaults, one won’t get APIPA addresses because of the hypervisor’s built-in DHCP servers. At least that's how it worked in both VirtualBox (VB) and VMware Workstation (VMW). I don’t know about Hyper-V. Also, after changing the IP addresses in the section 1.2 exercises, when you view the network in the “Network & Sharing Center”, you get an “unidentified network”. That gives you a red x which then leads one to believe that they did something wrong. On either of these, I’m not sure if I missed something. If so, I apologize. In any event, clearly, I’m not a hypervisor guru but I’m concerned about how this will play out when I try to set up DHCP, AD, etc in Windows. All I know is that it’s been driving me crazy for the past 2 days. Thanks!

Note from the Author or Editor:
I can verify that, in both VirtualBox and Hyper-V, if you assign the virtual network adapters to internal or private networks as specified on page xviii in the Introduction, you do in fact get APIPA addresses. Let's emphasize the required configuration with the following changes: 1. On page xviii, final paragraph, line 3, insert the following sentence after "internal network" and before "In addition": "(Note that virtual network adapters are not assigned to such private or internal networks by default in either Hyper-V or VirtualBox.)" 2. On page 36, paragraph 2, line 2, replace "the Introduction to this book" with "the Introduction to this book, with the virtual network adapters in your virtual machines assigned to the same private or internal network (not a NAT network)."

2nd paragraph

In both the PDF and mobi versions of the book we can read the following statement: The Checksum field contains the result of a mathematical function whose purpose is to check the integrity of the IP header. A resulting sum of 0 confirms that the sum checks OK, and that the header has not been modified in transit. As for RFC791, the Header Checksum is: A checksum on the header only. Since some header fields change (e.g., time to live), this is recomputed and verified at each point that the internet header is processed. The checksum algorithm is: The checksum field is the 16 bit one's complement of the one's complement sum of all 16 bit words in the header. For purposes of computing the checksum, the value of the checksum field is zero. Maybe the sample frame's checksum is 0x0 because of IPv4 Checksum Offload.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 9, second paragraph, please replace this (last) sentence: "A resulting sum of 0 confirms that the sum checks OK, and that the header has not been modified in transit." with this one: "The checksum value of 0 here indicates that that the checksum value is being set and checked outside the TCP/IP stack."

In both the PDF and mobi versions we read the following statement: This practice assumes that you have performed the computer lab setup as described in the Introduction to this book. On Dscrv1, Local Area Connection must be connected to the private lab network and Local Area Connection 2 must be disabled. On the Introduction "Lab Setup Instructions" there's no reference to the number of network adapters configured on the Lab computers and nothing suggests DCSRV1 has a second NIC ("Local Area Connection 2"), so it is supposed it has a default one NIC configuration.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 36, the second sentence of the second paragraph should read, "On Dcsrv1, Local Area Connection must be connected to the private lab network." The rest of the sentence (which includes a reference to Local Area Connection 2) should be removed.

Even if the available addresses falls within the indicated ranges, it is correct to include the broadcast addresses too, as reported on RFC 1918: The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved the following three blocks of the IP address space for private internets: 10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 (10/8 prefix) 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 (172.16/12 prefix) 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 (192.168/16 prefix)

Figure 1-52

On the book we read the following caption: Figure 1-52 ISATAP routers allow IPv4-only and IPv6-only hosts to communicate with each other. As for RFC 4213, an IPv4-only node is "A host or router that implements only IPv4. An IPv4-only node does not understand IPv6." Since an ISATAP client uses IPv4 as a link layer for IPv6, the caption should be changed to something like "ISATAP routers allow IPv6 hosts to communicate with each other over an IPv4-only network"

Note from the Author or Editor:
The caption for Figure 1-52 is misleading. The caption should read, "ISATAP routers help tunnel IPv6 traffic across an IPv4 intranet."

Quick check box

On the book we can read the followinq question: 2. Which technology allows an IPv4-only host to communicate with the IPv6 Internet? Since RFC 4213 defines an IPv4-only node as "A host or router that implements only IPv4. An IPv4-only node does not understand IPv6." and the current lesson focuses on IPv6 transition technologies (with no reference to proxies) it seems the question should be "Which technology allows a host on an IPv4-only network to communicate with the IPv6 Internet?"

Note from the Author or Editor:
I can confirm that the text is misleading. Please change "an IPv4-only host" to "a host on an IPv4-only network".

Last paragraph

In the book we read the following statement: Transition technologies have been defined to allow IPv4 and IPv6 to interoperate. With ISATAP, a special router negotiates directly between an IPv4-only and an IPv6-only LAN. 6to4 enables IPv6-only hosts to tunnel over an IPv4 network such as the Internet. Teredo is a host-based technology that is used when no other option is available. It uses Internet servers to help create IPv6 tunnels over the Internet. While it is true that IPv6-only hosts benefit of 6to4 technology, a 6to4 host may have an IPv4 address. The current statement seems to exclude IPv6/IPv4 nodes (as defined on RFC 2893) from 6to4 support.

Note from the Author or Editor:
I agree that this wording is slightly misleading. Please replace "6to4 enables IPv6-only hosts" with "6to4 enables IPv6 hosts".

Private address ranges should include both the network and broadcast addresses. The second and third address ranges are missing the broadcast address (172.31.255.255 and 192.168.255.255 respectively).

at page 216 , the first bullet point , this 3 lines are confusing : " By regularly updating a stub zone for one of its child zones, the DNS server that hosts both the parent zone and the stub zone will maintain a current list of authoritative DNS servers for the child zone. what is the meaning of " the DNS server that hosts both the parent zone and the stub zone" ?! i think this paragraph should be changed to : " By regularly updating a stub zone for one of its master zones, the DNS server that hosts the stub zone , will maintain a current list of authoritative DNS servers for the master zone. at pages 179, 215 and 216 , we see the words "master zone" , "parent zone" , "child zone" and "delegated zone" are used in a confusing manner. sometimes they are used for refering to stub zone and sometimes they are refering to main real zone. in my opinion , because about stub zones, we have 2 mechanism : "stub up" and "stub down", so it is better not to use child zone and parent zone in discussions about stub zone, because it will be confusing. instead , it is better to use the word "stub zone" for stub zone itself and the word "master zone" or "main zone" for the real main zone which includes entire recourse records.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 216, replace all of the text after the first bullet (""By regularly updating a stub zone for one of its child zones, the DNS server that hosts both the parent zone and the stub zone will maintain a current list of authoritative DNS servers for the child zone.") with the following: "In a delegation scenario, a stub zone helps a parent zone stay up-to-date about the authoritative name servers for a delegated (child) subdomain."

last paragraph

at page 256 , in the last paragraph it reads : " If the DHCP client shuts down normally, or if an administrator runs the command Ipconfig /release, the client sends a DHCP Release message to the DHCP server that assigned the IP address. The DHCP server then marks the IP address as available and can reassign it to a different DHCP client. " this sentence is correct only about runing Ipconfig /release command but is not correct about shutting down the DHCP clients. because if you capture packets using network monitor you will see that when clients shut down either normally or abnormally , they don't send any DHCP release message to DHCP Server and also DHCP server doesn't mark the IP address as available. so i think the above sentence should change to : " if an administrator runs the command Ipconfig /release, the client sends a DHCP Release message to the DHCP server that assigned the IP address. The DHCP server then marks the IP address as available and can reassign it to a different DHCP client. "

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 256, make the following two changes. 1. Change the first sentence of the last paragraph to the following: "If an administrator runs the command Ipconfig /release, the client sends a DHCP Release message to the DHCP server that assigned the IP address." 2. Change the 3rd sentence in the final paragraph to the following: "If the DHCP client does not request a DHCP release, the DHCP server will not assign the IP address to a different client until the DHCP lease expires."

5th bullet point and Figure 4-8

In the book we can read the following statement: Subnet Type - This setting essentially allows you to assign one of two lease durations to the scope. By default, the scope is set to the Wired subnet type, which configures a lease duration of six days. The alternative setting is Wireless, for which the lease duration is eight hours. Lease duration for wired subnets on Windows Server 2008 R2 is eight days. I verified this while performing step 11 of exercise 1 (where it is correctly reported as 8 days). Current (Windows Server 2008 R2 with latest hotfix) DHCP Install Wizard, New Scope Wizard and Online help ("Installing DHCP Server Role" and "More about adding scopes") consistently say it is eight days. I'm not sure, but the 6 days default for wired subnets lease is on Windows Server 2008 (not R2). Please note that Figure 4-8 on page 261 has the same "6 days" value and should eventually be fixed too.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 262, in the text associated with the "Subnet Type" bullet, change "a lease duration of six days" to "a lease duration of eight days." If possible, in Figure 4-8 on page 261, please also change "lease duration will be 6 days" to "lease duration will be 8 days".

Between Exercise 2 and 3

Practice is missing a step of allowing the vpnuser or 'VPN Users' group, access through the VPN. To accomplish this: 1. Launch NPS on DCSRV1 2. Create a new access policy allowing the 'VPN Users' group condition, with all other wizard settings the defaults. Alternatively, you can change the properties of the vpnuser account, dial-in tab, to allow access. Normally however you would do this through policy. Now client access will work. Also this practice should mention that Boston is pretending to be on the public Internet side so should have an IP in the range of the DCSRV1 public interface. It works fine with virtual machines, haven't tried it with real.

4th paragraph, second 'Logman' command.

The command to import a Data Collector Set uses the wrong logman command. The book reads: 'From a script you could import and then run the data collector set by running the following commands: logman export "Contoso Performance" -xml "Contoso Performance Dataset.xml" logman start "Contoso Performance" ' The command to import the Data Collector Set should be changed to: 'From a script you could import and then run the data collector set by running the following commands: logman import "Contoso Performance" -xml "Contoso Performance Dataset.xml" logman start "Contoso Performance" '

Note from the Author or Editor:
Valid. Please change as described.

Exercise 3, step 1 & 4

1. On Dcsrv1, log on using the Administrator account. This account has administrative privileges to Dcsrv1, but it is not configured as a DRA. 4.Double-click the Encrypted document in the details pane. Notice that Notepad displays an Access Is Denied error. You would see this same error even if you reinstalled the operating system or connected the hard disk to a different computer. By default the Administrator account is granted the DRA privilege so in step 4 you will not be denied access to the file. To correct this problem, in Exercise 1 on the same page, after completing step 6, choose Properties of the Encrypted File System node and delete Administrator from the list in the right pane. Alternate solution would be at the beginning of Exercise 3, log on to Dcsrv1 with an administrator account that is not EFSUser, DRA or Administrator.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 583, Exercise 1, Step 3, change the step to: "Create two domain user accounts named DRA and NotDRA, and make the accounts a member of the Domain Admins group." On page 583, Exercise 3, Step 1, change "Administrator" to "NotDRA".

under EXAM TIP

at page 601 , at the end of first paragraph , it reads : " Select one of the following options from the Ordering Method drop-down list: ........ " the last bullet point called " .Advanced " should not be a bullet point , because that is not related to the subject ( Ordering Method ) and that's actually on another Tab in the GUI. :-)

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 601, the first three bullet points ("Random Order", "Lowest Cost", and "Exclude Targets Outside of the Client's Site") are level 2 bullets and should be indented further. They're sub-bullets for the second item in the list that starts on page 600. "Advanced" is the last item of the list that started on page 600. It should be a level 1 bullet. For reference, the formatting is correct in the Word doc.

642p_1.2_09
Practice Test question

642p_1.2_09 - The question "How should you configure client computers" makes no sense at all, nothing needs to be changed on the clients. "What should you change on the DHCP server" or similar would be a better question. - Also the answer is wrong, you need to edit the existing 006 DHCP option, not add an additional one, which is impossible if a previous one exists. Whether this happens on server or scope level depends on the current DHCP implementation, but not enough information is given to make this decision. - To top it off, the provided explanation is also wrong. Options set on server level are inherited by the scopes on that server, existing and new ones, unless a overruling option has been set in the scope. (this compares to the way NTFS rights are inherited)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Change "How should you configure client computers?" to "How should you configure the DHCP server?" Set the correct answer to be "Edit the 006 Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server option". Mark the existing correct answer as incorrect. Change the explanation to: "The 006 option defines DNS servers (the 015 option defines the default DNS domain name). To modify the configuration for existing scopes, you need to edit the existing option rather than adding an option."

Practice Test question

642p_4.3_05 - This would be a minor error. The correct answer should read "In windows explorer right-click the volume and then choose configure shadow copies. Click the ENABLE button." Shadow copies are disabled by default and need to be enabled to use them. This cannot be done by altering the settings or schedule, only by clicking the ENABLE button.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Valid. For PTQ 642P_4.3_05, please change the correct answer from "Click the Settings button." to "Click the Enable button."

642p_4.5_02
Practice Test question

642p_4.5_02 - This situation will never occur. Probably this question has been re-used from a batch of 2008 questions ? Windows server 2008 R2 is 64bit only, and thus the first driver to be installed will be a 64bit driver. So if a printer is installed on 2008 R2, a 64bit Windows 7 will always be able to install the driver. To support a 32bit Windows 7 an additional driver would be needed.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On this PTQ, please change "32-bit" in the question to "64-bit", and change "64-bit" to "32-bit"

On page 669, question 3, answer choice D, change "a DHCPv6 client to obtain" to "a DHCPv6 client not to obtain".
