QUESTION 1

You are implementing a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package that loads data hosted in a SQL Azure database into a data warehouse. The source system contains redundant or inconsistent data. When the package finds invalid data, the row containing the invalid data must be omitted but it must also be written to a text file for further analysis. You need to establish the best technique to log these invalid rows while keeping the amount of development effort to a minimum. What should you do?

 

A.     Add an OnError event handler to the SSIS project.

B.      Use an msi file to deploy the package on the server.

C.      Open a command prompt and run the gacutil command.

D.     Open a command prompt and run the dtutil /copy command.

E.      Open a command prompt and run the dtexec /rep /conn command.

F.      Open a command prompt and run the dtexec /dumperror /conn command.

G.     Run the package by using the dtexecui.exe utility and the SQL Log provider.

H.     Create a reusable custom logging component and use it in the SSIS project.

I.       Configure the SSIS solution to use the Project Deployment Model.

J.       Configure the output of a component in the package data flow to use a data tap.

K.      Run the dtutil command to deploy the package to the SSIS catalog and store the

configuration in SQL Server.

 

Correct Answer: J

Correct Answer: H

 

 

QUESTION 5

A SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package on a computer is failing periodically in production. The package was created less than one year ago and was deployed to the SSIS catalog. Sometimes the package is started on a SQL Agent schedule; sometimes the package is started manually by an SSIS developer by using the Object Explorer in SQL Server Management Studio. You need to identify the authenticated user responsible for starting the package each time it failed in the past. Where can you find this information?

 

A.     the SQL Server Log

B.      the SSISDB.[catalog].[executions] view

C.      the SSISDB.[catalog].[event_messages] view

D.     the SQL Agent Job History

E.      the SQL Agent Error Log

 

Correct Answer: B

 

 

QUESTION 6

You maintain a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package. The package was developed by using SQL Server 2008 Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS). The package includes custom scripts that must be upgraded. You need to upgrade the package to SQL Server 2012. Which tool should you use?

 

A.     SSIS Upgrade Wizard in SQL Server 2008 BIDS

B.      SSIS Upgrade Wizard in SQL Server Data Tools

C.      SQL Server DTExecUI utility (dtexecui.exe)

Correct Answer: B

 

QUESTION 7

You are reviewing the design of an existing fact table named factSales, which is loaded from a SQL Azure database by a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package each day. The fact table has approximately 1 billion rows and is dimensioned by product, sales date, and sales time of day.

The database administrator is concerned about the growth of the database. Users report poor reporting performance against this database. Reporting requirements have recently changed and the only remaining report that uses this fact table reports sales by product name, sale month, and sale year. No other reports will be created against this table. You need to reduce the report processing time and minimize the growth of the database. What should you do?

 

A.     Partition the table by product type.

B.      Create a view over the fact table to aggregate sales by month.

C.      Change the granularity of the fact table to month.

D.     Create an indexed view over the fact table to aggregate sales by month.

 

Correct Answer
: C

 

 

QUESTION 8

You are designing a data warehouse for a software distribution business that stores sales by software title. It stores sales targets by software category. Software titles are classified into subcategories and categories. Each software title is included in only a single software subcategory, and each subcategory is included in only a single category. The data warehouse will be a data source for an Analysis Services cube. The data warehouse contains two fact tables:

 

Ÿ   factSales, used to record daily sales by software title

Ÿ   factTarget, used to record the monthly sales targets by software category

 

Reports must be developed against the warehouse that reports sales by software title, category and subcategory, and sales targets. You need to design the software title dimension. The solution should use as few tables as possible while supporting all the requirements. What should you do?

 

A.          Create three software tables, dimSoftware, dimSoftwareCategory, and

dimSoftwareSubcategory and a fourth bridge table that joins software titles to their appropriate category and subcategory table records with foreign key constraints. Direct the cube developer to use key granularity attributes.

B.          Create three software tables, dimSoftware, dimSoftwareCategory, and

dimSoftwareSubcategory. Connect factSales to all three tables and connect factTarget to dimSoftwareCategory with foreign key constraints. Direct the cube developer to use key granularity attributes.

C.          Create one table, dimSoftware, which contains Software Detail, Category, and Subcategory columns. Connect factSales to dimSoftware with a foreign key constraint. D
irect the cube developer to use a non-key granularity attribute for factTarget.

D.          Create two tables, dimSoftware and dimSoftwareCategory. Connect factSales to

dimSoftware and factTarget to dimSoftwareCategory with foreign key constraints. Direct the cube developer to use key granularity attributes.

 

Correct Answer: C

 

 

QUESTION 9

You are reviewing the design of a customer dimension table in an existing data warehouse hosted on SQL Azure. The current dimension design does not allow the retention of historical changes to customer attributes such as Postcode. You need to redesign the dimension to enable the full historical reporting of changes to multiple customer attributes including Postcode. What should you do?

 

A.     Add StartDate and EndDate columns to the customer dimension.

B.      Add an IsCurrent column to the customer dimension.

C.      Enable Snapshot Isolation on the data warehouse.

D.     Add CurrentValue and PreviousValue columns to the customer dimension.

 

Correct Answer: A

 

 

QUESTION 10

You are designing an enterprise star schema that will consolidate data from three independent data marts. One of the data marts is hosted on SQL Azure. Most of the dimensions have the same structure and content. However, the geography dimension is slightly different in each data mart. You need to design a consolidated dimensional structure that will be easy to maintain while ensuring that all dimensional data from the three original solutions is represented. What should you do?

 

A.     Create a junk dimension for the geography dimension.

B.      Implement change data capture.

C.      Create a conformed dimension for the geography dimension.

D.     Create three geography dimensions.
