70-687 Configuring Windows 8.1 – sample exam – Q33

A company has an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain. All client computers run Windows 8.1.
A local printer is shared from a client computer. The client computer user is a member of the Sales AD security group.
You need to ensure that members of the Sales security group can print to the shared printer and modify only their own print jobs.
Which permission should you grant to the Sales group?

A. Manage queue
B. Print
C. Manage documents
D. Manage this printer
E. Manage spooler

Correct Answer: B

Explanation: Group types

There are two types of groups in Active Directory: distribution groups and security groups. You can use distribution groups to create e-mail distribution lists and security groups to assign permissions to shared resources.

Security groups
Used with care, security groups provide an efficient way to assign access to resources on your network.
Using security groups, you can:
Assign user rights to security groups in Active Directory
Assign permissions to security groups on resources Setting Printer Permissions

If you have a workgroup network and have disabled Password Protected Sharing, or if you have set up a homegroup, you don’t need to worry about setting permissions for printers: anyone can use your shared printer. If you’re on a domain network or have chosen to use detailed user-level permissions on your workgroup network, you can control access to your shared printers with security attributes that can be as- signed to users or groups, as shown in Figure 21.9 and described next:


The Security tab lets you assign printer-management permissions for users, groups, and the creator of each print job.
