    The ability to fix..with the click of a button: shouldn't that be qualified with "sometimes"? Without the qualification, does it mean "always" - in which case isn't it wrong?

    Tom too soon to say too much. Remember it is possible that people can get to these comments BEFORE they answer the question -- giving them an unearned heads up.

    Good Question - made my tired old brain really think ... and the exercise was good.

    If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

    I felt the same way but checked that option anyway using the "spirit" of what they were trying to say. It should have been worded as "From a single place one can fix all of those scenarios."

    I took a chance and got lucky to get it right.

    It may resolve database and server settings, but I don't think it will correct naming convention policy viloations with the click of a button.

    Nice Question. I had to think about it for a minute.

    Nice question, thank you.

    I got it wrong because I checked first 3, but failed to check the last checkbox, and it looks like the latter is the one which causes the majority of wrong answers. The ratio of right and wrong is about 50/50 but the first 3 options are selected by the majority. In my case I was just affected by the nasty cold (or flu), so for some reason I could not force myself to think straight and could not separate the fix out of policy conditions part into fix and out of policy conditions. The out somehow stuck to the fix and so I read the sentence as ...fix out of policy conditions, so could not figure out what does it mean. Once I read the answer, I could see that it actually reads fix out of policy conditions. This taught me a lesson not to try answering QoD while being sick.

    The Ability to Define Standard Policies

    Am I being too pedantic in thinking that Policy Management doesn't 'define' policies but it does enable us to enforce them. Am I tying myself in knots here?!? 🙂

    You can define, verify, and enforce policies on multiple instances with PBM (as well as log compliance) 🙂

    Had to think about this question for a bit. I have never worked with Policy Based Management, so this question helped to learn about.
