As I see it, what most people are answering, and what the explanation says is correct, are the same, but that a mistake has been made in the configuration of the QOTD app (so that an incorrect answer is the one flagged as the right one).

Now we've highlighted this, can I PLEASE request that we don't do the same as with the "Order By" question and submit 11 pages of "I answered this and it seems to be right, but I've been told it's wrong so can I have my point back please".

Confusing,

i checked the Windows Vista Compatibility List and found:

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 x64 & x86 (needs SQL Server 2005 SP2 installed to run best in Vista). Note: SP2 has not been released yet, it's only beta and Microsoft recommends not to install it in production machines. The major issue with SQL 2005 is that it doesn't inherit credentials from Windows, as a result, any application attempting to access the db engine will have to run as administrator or the Authenticated users group will have to manually be added to to the SQL logins. Manager Studio requires administrator's privileges or to manually add user accounts to sysadmin group.


SP2 should be the correct answer i think.

If the explanation is correct, the answer is incorrect.

Sorry but your explanation is incompatible with the answer.

Even if SP 2 is the correct answer, I don't think it is correct, as I'm running a SQL 2005 SP 2 Client on Vista, which cannot display the properties of a job

Oh well... Looks like the scoring key is wrong again. Glad they don't do exam testing

Are you testing the server to see how much email can go through on a given day? If you punch in the correct answer, which is SP2 of SQL 2005, it comes up saying the answer is wrong that the correct answer is SP2 for SQL 2005. What's up with that?

There has to be some error. The only answer that's correct is SP2, the explanation says SP2, but the result of choosing SP2 is that you are wrong?!!
