You administer computers that run Windows 8 Pro and are members of an Active Directory domain. The computers are encrypted with BitLocker and are configured to store BitLocker encryption passwords in Active Directory.
A user reports that he has forgotten the BitLocker encryption password for volume E on his computer.
You need to provide the user a BitLocker recovery key to unlock the protected volume.
Which two actions should you perform? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)
Ask the user to run the manage-bde -unlock E: -pw command.
Ask the user for a recovery key ID for the protected volume.
Ask the user for his computer name.
Ask the user for his logon name.
Answer: C,D Explanation:
You can use the name of the user’s computer to locate the recovery password in AD DS. If the user doesnot know the name of the computer, ask the user to read the first word of the Drive Label in the BitLocker Drive Encryption Password Entryuser interface. This is the computer name when BitLocker was enabled and is probably the current name of the computer.
Verify the user’s identity
You should verify that the person that is asking for the recovery password is truly the authorized user of that computer. Another option is to verify that the computer with the name the user provided belongs to the user.

You are an administrator for a large company that has an Active Directory domain. Your company has tablets that run Windows RT.
Users report that their tablets get locked after one minute of inactivity. They also report that when they change the Personalization setting to 15 minutes, it resets back to 1 minute.
You need to ensure that the lockout time for inactivity is set to 15 minutes. What should you do?
Modify ActiveSync configuration.
Log on to the tablets as a local administrator and run the PowerShell cmdlet Set- ScreenSaverTimeout -Seconds 900.
Log on to the tablets as a local administrator and configure the Screensaver wait time and logon options.
Modify Group Policy.
Configure the local system policy Do not display the lock screen setting to Enabled.
Answer: A Explanation:
Because it is Windows RT, option ‘C’ is the most logical answer as ActiveSync would beused to manage the device.
Run ActiveSync cmdlet -MaxInactivityTimeDeviceLock: ****15 min or other time here****** It keeps changing because the activesync is overriding the personalization settings.
Therefore, if you change the activesync to 15 min, it will override the inactivity lockout time to 15min. You can set a local group policy but chances are the activesync will override that also. There may be registry setting you can change but that isn’t an option to choose. SO it’s modify activesync config

You install Windows 8 on a desktop computer. You create a system image and then install third-party desktop apps and create personal data. You disable the creation of restore points. The computer is not running optimally. You need to remove the third-party applications and preserve files that are stored in your Documents folder. You start the computer from a system repair disk.
Which troubleshooting option should you use?
Refresh your PC without affecting your files
Remove everything and install Windows
System Image Recovery
Answer: A Explanation:
Basically the Refresh feature allows you to refresh your Windows 8 installation back to a vanilla, brand new install while preserving all your personal files. Windows 8 also includes a Reset feature which is similar however resetting your install deletes all personal files so don#39;t select this unless you want a full system wipe.
This is what happens:
Your files and personalization settings won’t change. Your PC settings will be changed back to their defaults. Metro-style apps from the Windows store will be retained.

Your company has a main office and a branch office. All servers are located in the main office. The branch office contains 20 client computers that are the members of a workgroup.
You need to configure the client computers to use BranchCache. The solution must minimize the amount of traffic between the offices.
Which Windows PowerShell cmdlet should you run?
Answer: D Explanation: Not sure.
Enable-BCLocal: Sets up this client as a standalone BranchCache client; that is it will look in its own local cache for content which matches the hashes indicated by the server.
Enable-BCDistributed: Sets up this client to broadcast out to the local network looking for other potential Distributed BranchCache clients.
Enable-BCHostedClient: Sets up this client to look at a particular static server nominated to host the
BranchCache cache. Required. Configures the BranchCache service to operate in one of the following modes. DISABLED disables the BranchCache service. LOCAL uses caching on the local computer only. DISTRIBUTED enables distributed cache mode, allowing authorized client computers in branch offices to download and republish content.
HOSTEDSERVER configures the local computer as a hosted cache server. HOSTEDCLIENT configures the local computer as a hosted cache client.
While you can use a local cache, the real benefits come from distributed and hosted mode, where the browsing actions of a single employee can benefit the whole office. For instance if Employee A and Employee B are sitting in the same office and both browse to the same site then most of the content for Employee B will be retrieved direct from Employee A’s laptop rather than re-downloading from the server. That’s really powerful particularly where there are bandwidth constraints in the office and common sites that are used by all employees. But it requires that the web server serving the content participates in the Branchcache protocol by installing the BranchCache feature.w
