Sub-Objective: Installing Office 2007
Single Answer, Multiple Choice
You have created a network share, \server1shareOffice2007, for Office 2007 installations. You have customized the setup files for the accounting and HR departments. You have created Accounting.msp and HR.msp files and stored them in a folder in the \server1shareinstallation folder. After a number of installations are performed from the installation point, you are informed by a user in the accounting department that installations from the installation point have failed. You check the installation point and notice a number of files are missing. You want to ensure such a problem does not occur in the future.
What should you do?
- Ensure permissions to all source folders are set as read-only.
- Ensure that the Office2007 folder has read-only permissions and that the Accounting.msp and HR.msp files have read-write permissions.
- Exclude all users from the Administrators group on their local computers.
- Remove the Accounting.msp and HR.msp files from the network share and copy them onto users' desktops.
A. Ensure permissions to all source folders are set as read-only.
You should ensure permissions to all source folders in the installation point are set as read-only. If you do not, then users will have the privileges to delete contents within the installation point. When you are defining the installation point, you should not define the installation point in the root of the server. As the scenario describes, you have defined the installation folder in the share folder. You will need to create the customization files, which in this case are Accounting.msp and HR.msp. These installation files are customized as per your requirements. You can use the Office Customization Tool to customize the installation files, which need to be present in the root folder of the server.
You should not set read-write permissions on the HR.msp and Accounting.msp files. Both files are source files and need to be secured from any modifications. You should set both files as read-only.
You should not ensure all users are excluded from the Administrators group on their local computers. If you exclude the users from the Administrators group on their local computers, then users will not be able to perform the installation.
You should not remove the Accounting.msp and HR.msp files from the network share and copy them onto users' desktops. For the users to initiate the installation from the installation point, you need to copy the customized installation files to a folder in the installation point. In this scenario, the installation folder under the share folder is the defined folder
