(2)Answers to Essay Quiz

1.      Answers should liken the drawers, hanging folders, file folders, and documents of a filing cabinet to the volume, directory, subdirectory, and files of a Novell network file system, respectively, and to the disk (or volume), folder, subfolder, and files of a Microsoft network file system.

2.      Answers should include that just as unique naming in NDS is an important tool when attempting to locate specific objects, a filenameís syntax is an important tool when it comes to locating files. In order for the system to know where to look for the file, the syntax rules must be observed during the nameís creation so that you can be assured that the system looks in the intended location when putting the stored file to use.

3.      Answers should explain that the default Microsoft file (or folder) access is Full Control to the Everyone group. Control, therefore, is achieved by limiting those default permissions. On a NetWare network, no default rights are assigned once the operating system is installed. Therefore, total control is present by default. Only by lessening that control are users granted additional access.

4.      Answers should explain that the Deny permission on a Microsoft network stops the flow of rights from any direction. Novellís IRFs can be used to similarly restrict the rights that would normally flow to a user through inheritance.

5.      Answers should include that mapping a drive makes data storage and retrieval easier and that you can map a drive to an object when you want to have the operating system recognize that object as a separate hard drive.
