Delete all child objects
What are the 3 ways users can be assigned permission to an object?
-User's account is added to the object's DACL (aka effective permissions)
-A group the user belongs to is added to the object's DACL
-The permission is inherited from a parent objects DACL
What permission overrides Allow permissions?
-exception is when the deny permission is inherited from a parent object and the allow permission is explicitly added to the object's DACL
If a security principal isn't represented in an object's DACL, does it have access to the object?
What defines how permissions are transmitted from a parent object to a child object?
Permission Inheritance

Which advanced features option stores quota information that limits the number of Active Directory objects a user, group, computer, or service can create?
What term describes a combination of the allowed and denied permissions assigned to a security principal?
Effective permissions
What term refers to permissions that override inherited permissions and can create some exceptions to the rule that "deny permissions override allow permissions"?
Explicit permissions
Permission inheritance is enabled by default on child objects but can be disabled. True or False?
Each Active Directory database is referred to as a what?
Directory partition
What are the 5 directory partition types in the Active Directory database?

Which partition contains all objects in a domain, including users, groups, computers, OU's and so forth?
Domain directory partition
Which directory partition contains information needed to define AD objects and object attributes?
Schema directory partition
Which directory partition is a partial replica of all objects in the forest and holds the global catalog?
Global catalog partition
Which directory partition is used by applications and services to hold information that benefits from Active Directory replication and security such as DNS?
Application directory partition
Which directory partition holds configuration information that can affect the entire forest, such as details on how domain controllers should replicate with one another?
Configuration partition
What is the name for a number of operations in a forest having a single domain controller with sole responsibility for the function?
Operations master
Which domain controller in the forest generally takes on the role of the operations master?
First domain controller
Can the responsibility for operations master roles be transferred to another domain controller?
The 5 operations master roles are referred to as what?
Flexible single master operation roles (FSMO)
What are the 5 Operations Master Roles?

-Infrastructure master
-Domain naming master
-RID master
-PDC emulator master
Which FSMO role provides backward compatibility with Windows NT servers configured as Windows NT backup domain controllers or member servers?
PDC emulator master
Which Operations Master role is responsible for replicating the schema directory partition to all other domain controllers in the forest when changes occur?
Schema master
Which Operations Master role is responsible for ensuring that changes made to object names in one domain, are updated in references to these objects in other domains?
Infrastructure master
Which FSMO role manages adding, removing, and renaming domains in the forest?
Domain naming master
Which FSMO role is responsible for ensuring that no 2 object have the same RID (relative identifier) and issuing unique pools of RID's to each domain controller thereby guaranteeing unique SID's?

What is the term for replication between domain controllers in the same site?
Intrasite replication
What is the term for replication between two or more sites?
Intersite replication
What type of replication is used for replicating Active Directory Objects, such as users and computer accounts, which means changes to these objects can occur on any domain controller and are propagated, or replicated to all other domain controllers?
Multimaster replication
What process runs on every domain controller to determine the replication topology, which defines the domain controller path that Active Directory changes flow through?
Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC)
In Active Directory, what defines how security principals from one domain can access network resources in another domain?
