  1. Choosing the Typical Configuration

    List/name the information needed for a typical configuration.
    • Virtual machine name and inventory location
    • Location: cluster, host, resource pool
    • Datastore for virtual machine files
    • Guest operating system and version
    • Disk parameters for new virtual disk
    • _____Disk size
    • _____Disk-provisioning settings:
    • _______- Allocate and commit space on demand(Thin Provisioning)
    • _______- Support clustering features such as Fault Tolerance
  2. Choosing the Custom Configuration

    List/name the information needed for a custom configuration.
    • Virtual machine version (version 7 is the latest)
    • Number of CPUs and size of memory
    • Number of NICs, network to connect to, and network adapter type
    • SCSI controller type
    • Whether to create new disk, use existing disk, use RDM or use no disk
    • Other disk-provisioning settting:
    • _____Store virtual disk with the virtual machine or in different datastore
    • _____Virtual device node (ex... SCSI(0:0)
    • _____Mode-independent (persistent or nonpersistent)
  3. Choosing the Custom Configuration

    What is the latest virtual machine version which is compatible with ESX/ESXi 4.0 and greater hosts?
    Version 7. Version 7 provides greater virtual machine functionality than the previous version (version).
  4. Choosing the Custom Configuration

    Virtual machine version 7 is recommended for virtual machines that do not need to migrate to ESX/ESXi 3.x hosts. True or False?

    If False, Why?
    True.
  5. VMware Tools

    What service synchronizes the time in the guest operating system with the time in the host operating system?
    The VMware Tools service.
  6. VMware Tools

    List/name the features VMware Tools include.
    • VMware device drivers, including:
    • _____SVGA display
    • _____vmxnet/vmxnet3 - some OS
    • _____BusLogic SCSI driver - some OS
    • _____Ballon driver - memory management
    • _____Sync driver - quiescing I/O
    • _____Improved mouse - VMware mouse driver

    • The VMware Tools control panel
    • The VMware user process
  7. VMware Tools

    What VMware Tools feature enables you to copy and paste between the guest operating system and the managed host operating system?
    The VMware user process.
  8. Virtual Appliances

    What is a virtual appliance?
    A virtual appliance is a preconfigured virtual machine that typically includes a preiinstalled guest operating system and other software usually designed for a specific purpose. Eg... secure web browser, firewall or backup-and-recovery utility like VMware Backup and Recovery appliance.
  9. Virtrual Appliances

    What are virtual appliances deployed as?
    Virtual appliances are deployed as an Open Virtual Machine (OVF) template. OVF is a platform-idependent, efficient, extensible and open packaging and distribution format for virtual machines.
  10. Virtual Appliances

    What are the steps to import a virtual appliance into the vCenter Server inventory from the VMware Virtual Appliance Marketplace?
    Using the vSphere Client, in the menu bar, select File > Browse VA Marketplace.
  11. Deploying an OVF Template

    In addition to virtual appliances, the vSphere Client allows you to import and export any file in OVF format. True or False?

    If False, Why?
    True.
  12. Deploying an OVF Template

    In addition to browsing the VA Marketplace, what is another way to deploy/import a virtual appliance or any virtual machine in OVF format? List/name the steps.
    Using the vSphere Client select the host or cluster in the inventory that you plan to run the appliance and in the menu bar, select File > Deploy OVF Template.
  13. Deploying an OVF Template

    What are the requirements for exporting a virtual machine as an OVF template?
    The virtual machine must be powered off and must not have connections to local devices like CD-ROMs or DVDs.
  14. Deploying an OVF Template

    What are the steps to export a virtual machine as an OVF template?
    Using the vSphere Client select the virtual machine in the inventory that you plan to export and in the menu bar, select File > Export > Export OVF Template.
  15. Deploying an OVF Template

    You can use the export function to distribute preinstalled software as a virtual appliance and to distrubute template virtual machines to users who cannot directly access the vCenter Server invertory. True or False?

    If False, Why?
    True.
