Mark works as a Network Administrator for NetTech Inc. The company has a Windows Server 2016 single
Domain-based network. Mark wants to use scripting for managing Windows server roles, backing up and

A. Active Directory Sizer (ADSizer)

B. Windows PowerShell

C. GPUPDATE

D. Group Policy Management Console (GPMC)

Explanation:
In order to accomplish the task, Mark will have to use the Windows PowerShell tool. Windows PowerShell
is an extensible command-line tool and associated scripting language. It provides administrators
comprehensive control and automation of system administration tasks to increase their productivity. It
integrates with the Microsoft .NET Framework and provides an environment to perform administrative tasks
by execution of commands. It includes many system administration utilities, consistent syntax and naming
conventions, and improved navigation of common management data such as the registry, certificate store,
or Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). Windows PowerShell also includes a scripting language
specifically designed for administrative purposes.
Incorrect Answers:
A: Active Directory Sizer (ADSizer) is a tool provided by Microsoft to plan the optimal number of domain
controllers required in a network. The information provided by the tool includes the number of domain
controllers and the processor and memory requirements for each one.
C: The GPUPDATE command is used to refresh the local and Active Directory- based group policy settings.
It also refreshes security settings. The GPUPDATE command has replaced the SECEDIT /refreshpolicy
command.
Syntax:
GPUPDATE [/target:{computer|user}] [/force] [/wait:value] [/logoff] [/boot]
D: The Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) is a tool for managing group policies in Windows
Server 2016. It provides administrators a single consolidated environment for working on group policy-related tasks. GPMC provides a single interface with drag-and-drop functionality to allow an administrator to
manage group policy settings across multiple sites, domains, or even forests. GPMC is used to back up,
restore, import, and copy group policy objects. It also provides a reporting interface on how group policy
objects (GPOs) have been deployed.
