A bit easy, but still 40% (at the moment) got it wrong Blink

They got it wrong because they are using 2005 & the question doesn't specify the version and I suspect most businesses are still using 2005 for production systems.

A good question. It would have been a great question if the author had not forgotten to specify the version - Powershell is not supported in SQL Server 2005, so that might cause some incorrect replies.

It was a nice touch to indicate the number of answers that has to be checked. Though this makes it easier as well - since there were only five options, I knew I had the correct answer as soon as I identified the one incorrect option. Would it not have been simpler to ask us to check the option that is NOT a job step and require only a single answer?

I hope to see more questions from this contributor.

Good question and not too difficult. I did my certs in 2008 and so my natural inclination was to answer the question with that version in mind :-D

Ah, that explains it. If it didn't say "Select Four," I would have gotten the question wrong because I frequently create Steps in Jobs have never seen "Powershell" or "Reporting Services Report Subscriptions" options so I would have only selected 3. I use 2005 and had to look this one up before answering to find the proper 4th option.

As others have pointed out, the "correct" answer is wrong. Powershell is NOT an option in 2005. I got it right for the wrong reason: I guessed that Powershell integration was more likely in in 2008 than an RS subscription.

These kinds of versioning problems with QoD are common enough and easily prevented: couldn't SSC require all submitters to specify which versions they have tested their question on?
