Which of the following would be the proper entry in an lmhosts file on a windows 2000 Professional computer connecting to a domain called 'mydomian' that has a primary domain controller named 'mypdc'.
A. mypdc #PRE #DOM:mydomain 22.214.171.124

C. 188.8.131.52 #PRE #DOM:mydomain mypdc
D. #PRE #DOM:mydomain 184.108.40.206 mypdc
Answer - B
The proper format for an entry in an LMhosts file is:
'IP Address' 'machine name' 'keywords'
The #PRE keyword is used to preload the entry into name cache. By default entries are not preloaded into cache and are checked only after a name server query fails.
The #DOM keyword is used to specify that the entry is a domain controller of the specified domain.
