    A. Any baseline compatible with the existing ESXi hosts in the cluster
    B. The lowest baseline that is compatible with all ESXi hosts in the cluster
    C. The highest baseline that is compatible with vSphere 4.x and 5.x
    D. The highest baseline that is compatible with the ESXi hosts in the cluster
    B. The lowest baseline that is compatible with all ESXi hosts in the cluster

  2. When using a hardware iSCSI initiator with an ESXi host, which two tasks are performed by VMKernel?(Choose two)

    A. Encapsulation of iSCSI PDUs TCP/IP packets
    B. Mapping requests for blocks on the virtual disk to blocks on the appropriate physical device
    C. Issuing SCSS commands to the virtual disk
    D. Encapsulation of I/O requests into iSCSI Protocol Data Units (PDUs)
    • B. Mapping requests for blocks on the virtual disk to blocks on the appropriate physical device
    • C. Issuing SCSS commands to the virtual disk
  3. Users are complaining that they cannot access their files on a file server virtual machine. The vSphere client shows that a triggered alarm stating disk latency is beyond the default Threshold for the datastore where the file server virtual machine is located. The path selection policy has been set by the ESXi host to Fixed with default path settings.
    Which two options could be used to increase performance of the server virtual machine? (Choose two)

    A. Use storage vMotion to move the file server virtual machine to datastore with lower latency
    B. Use disk shares to increase the priority for the datastore housing the file server virtual machine
    C. Change the path selection policy to Round Robin
    D. Change the path selection policy to Most Recently Used (MRU)
    • A, C
    • A - because this should resolve the latency problem, this is a free bee.
    • C - RR distributes the latency across all the paths, Fixed and MRU only use one path at a time. Because the ESXi server defaulted to Fixed we can assume that the storage is Active, Active allowing us to use RR to gain better performance as all of the paths to the SAN will be active.
    • Note: If the host uses a default preferred path and the path's status turns to Dead, a new path is selected as preferred. However, if you explicitly designate the preferred path, it will remain preferred even when it becomes inaccessible.
  4. Which resource management technique can be used to relieve a network bottleneck caused by a virtual
    machine on a vSS with occasional high outbound network activity?

    A. Convert the switch from a vSphere Standard Switch to a vSphere Distributed Switch.
    B. Create a new portgroup for the virtual machine and enable traffic shaping.
    C. Apply traffic shaping to the other virtual machines in the same port group.
    D. Apply traffic shaping to the virtual machine with high activity.
    B; vSS does not enable you to apply traffic shaping at the port level. To not interfere with other virtual machines you need to create a separate port group to move the VM into so you can apply shaping to that port group.
  5. An administrator has determined that storage performance to a group of virtual machines is reduced during peak activity.
    The virtual machines are located in a VMFS datastore called Production1 on an active-active storage array.

    The ESXi 5.x host running the virtual machines is configured with an MRU multipathing policy.
    Which two actions can be taken to improve the storage performance of these virtual machines? (Choose two.)

    A. Add virtual storage, create a VMFS datastore called Production2 on the new storage, and then migrate some of the virtual machines from Production1 to Production2.
    B. Change the storage multipathing policy to Round Robin.
    C. Add physical storage, create a VMFS datastore called Production2 on the new storage, and then migrate some of the virtual machines from Production1 to Production2.
    D. Change the storage multipathing policy to Fixed with default settings.
    • B, C
    • Changing the multipathing policy to RR on a Active, Active storage array results in more active paths to the SAN. MRU and Fixed results in one active path to the SAN, fixing nothing. 

    Adding actual physical storage and migrating machines into this physical storage will resolve this issue as well.
  6. An administrator must decommission a datastore. Before unmounting the datastore, which three requirements must be fullfilled? (Choose three.)

    A. No virtual machines reside on the datastore.
    B. The datastore is not used for vSphere HA heartbeat.
    C. No registered virtual machines reside on the datastore.
    D. The datastore must not have any extents.
    E. The datastore must not be part of a datastore cluster.
    • A, B, E
    • Prerequisites
    • Before unmounting a VMFS datastores, make sure that the following prerequisites are met:
    • - No virtual machines reside on the datastore.
    • - The datastore is not part of a datastore cluster.
    • - The datastore is not managed by Storage DRS.
    • - Storage I/O control is disabled for this datastore.
    • - The datastore is not used for vSphere HA heartbeating.
  7. An administrator is informed that there will be a storage maintenance window and that failovers may
    occur. What is the expected length of time that a Windows 2008 virtual machine storage I/O will pause during a path failover?

    A. 0 to 30 seconds
    B. 90 to 120 seconds
    C. 60 to 90 seconds
    D. 30 to 60 seconds
    • D
    • Path Failover and Virtual Machines
    • Path failover occurs when the active path to a LUN is changed from one path to another, usually because of a SAN component failure along the current path.
    • When a path fails, storage I/O might pause for 30 to 60 seconds until your host determines that the link is unavailable and completes failover. If you attempt to display the host, its storage devices, or its adapters, the operation might appear to stall. Virtual machines with their disks installed on the SAN can appear unresponsive. After failover is complete, I/O resumes normally and the virtual machines continue to run.
    • However, when failovers take a long time to complete, a Windows virtual machine might interrupt the I/O and eventually fail. To avoid the failure, set the disk timeout value for the Windows virtual machine to at least 60 seconds.
  8. An administrator wants to monitor the health status of an ESXi 5.x host. However, when the administrator clicks the Hardware Status tab the following error is displayed. This program cannot display the webpage What might cause this problem?
    A. The VMware VirtualCenter Management Webservices Service is not started.
    B. The required plug-in is not enabled.
    C. The VMware ESXi Management Webservices Service is not started
    D. The name of the vCenter Server system could not be resolved.
    • A
    • There are several possible causes for this issue. Attempt each of the troubleshooting steps below in sequence, without skipping any.
    • 1. Confirm that the vCenter Web Management Service is running.
    • To resolve this issue, connect to vCenter locally with a vSphere Client located on the vCenter Server and follow Stopping, starting, or restarting vCenter services (1003895). The only one related specifically to vmware is above.
  9. An iSCSI array is being added to a vSphere 5.x implementation. An administrator wants to verify that all
    IP storage VMkernel interfaces are configured for jumbo frames.

    A. Run the esxcli network ip interface list command
    B. Run the esxcfg-vswif -l command
    C. Ensure that the Enable Jumbo Frames box is checked in the VMkernel interface properties in the vSphere client
    D. Ensure that the MTU size is set correctly in the VMkernel interface properties in the vSphere client
    A, D
  10. An administrator has configured a vSphere Distributed Switch to send all network traffic to a collector virtual machine for analysis.

    D. Route based on port ID hash
    • A, D
    • Route based on the originating virtual port. Choose an uplink based on the virtual port where the traffic entered the virtual switch.
    • Route based on IP hash. Choose an uplink based on a hash of the source and destination IP addresses of each packet. For non-IP packets, whatever is at those offsets is used to compute the hash.
    • Route based on source MAC hash. Choose an uplink based on a hash of the source Ethernet.
    • Use explicit failover order. Always use the highest order uplink from the list of Active adapters which passes failover detection criteria.

    C, uplink is marked as active, but cannot be used by the active NIC team until it is added to the existing 802.3ad group on the physical switch. The assumption of using multiple links immediately implies EtherChannel (Cisco) or 802.3ad grouping. It's active, which is why adding a new uplink is immediately available, but must be joined to the NIC team for it to be used.
  22. Which two conditions prevent the application of a host profile to an ESXi 5.x host? (Choose two.)
    A. The host has multiple profiles attached.
    B. The host has not been placed into maintenance mode.

    • A: has nothing to do with Auto Deploy in this respect.
    • B: vCenter cannot use FT as it requires 2 cpu's.
    • D: When you upgrade vCenter Server, vCenter Server replaces the vSphere HA agent (vmware-fdm) version 5.0 with vSphere HA agent version 5.1 on each ESXi host. On hosts provisioned with Auto Deploy, the replacement is not permanent because no state is on the host. If vCenter Server is not available, the ESXi hosts do not have the correct vSphere HA agent and cannot join a cluster. To make teh upgrade of the FDM VIB to version 5.1 permanent, you must create a new image that includes the VIB (vmware-fdm VIB)

    [Showing the valid chunk of the exhibit]
    Name NWLD
    dasojose-vma50 5
    DEV_App_01 5
    Dev_SQL_01 5
    FileServer01 12
    Based on the output in the exhibit, how many vCPU's have been assigned toFileServer01?
    A. 1
    B. 2
    C. 4
    D. 8
    • D
    • NWLD = Number of worlds. Every virtual machines starts out with 4 worlds. Each additional world = 1 vCPU. So from the exhibit we see that FileServer01 has 12 worlds. Subtract the default 4 worlds and we end up with 8 = 8 vCPU's.

    You cannot vmotion across datacenters.
  53. When creating a dvport group, which port binding option assigns a port to a virtual machine when the machine is connected to the dvPort Group?

    A. Static binding
    B. Flexible
    C. Ephemeral
    D. Dynamic binding
    A. Static binding

    Static Binding - Port is assigned and reserved for a VM and only disconnected when VM is removed from the port group.

    Dynamic Binding - Port is assigned to VM only when VM is powered on and NIC is connected.Port is disconnected when VM is powered off or NIC disconnected. VMs must be powered on and off through vCenter.

    Ephemeral binding - port is created and assigned to a virtual machine by the host when the virtual machine is powered on and its NIC is in a connected state. The port is deleted when the virtual machine is powered off or the virtual machine's NIC is disconnected.Allows for modification of VM network connection when vCenter is down.
  54. What is a object to which an extent can be added?

    A. An NFS datastore

    B. An available unused storage volume

    C. A VMFS or NFS datastore

    D
  55. A windows virtual machine viewed through Task manager shows CPU utilization average 95-100 percent.

    What metric be checked to ensure this virtual machine is not in contention for CPU resources with other virtual machine on the same ESXi host?

    A. CPU overhead

    B. CPU ready

    C. CPU usage

    D. CPU wait
    B

    CPU ready identifies how long a VM has to wait to gain access to the host cpu.
  56. An administrator revokes user permissions on an object in vCenter Server. At the time the permissions are revoked, the user is actively logged in to vCenter Server through the vSphere Client.

    What is true regarding this scenario?

    A. The user immediately loses permissions on the object

    B. The user retains permissions on the object for up to 24 hours

    C. The user retains permissions on the object for up to 24 hours or until the next time the user logs in to vCenter Server

    D. The user retains permissions on the object until the next time the user logs in to vCenter Server
    A

    Object permissions are instant, BUT...

    If you remove a user from the host, they lose permissions to all objects on the host and cannot log in again.
    Note
    Users who are logged in and are removed from the domain keep their host permissions until you restart the host.

    That's the trick.
  57. Which two steps are required before VMware Data Recovery can be used? (Choose two )

  61. What are three true statements about an integrity check in vCenter Data Recovery? (Choose three )

    A. The operation reclaims space on the de duplication store

    B. The operation can be executed outside of the maintenance window

    C. The operation ensures that the de duplication store is synchronized with the catalogue

    D. The operation can be resumed from a previous incomplete integrity check

    E. The operation can be incremental
    A, B, C 

    Recatalog

    This operation is performed to ensure that the catalog of restore points is synchronized with the contents of the deduplication store. This operation runs automatically when there is an inconsistency detected between the catalog and the deduplication store. While the recatalog operation is in progress, no other operation is allowed on the deduplication store.
    Reclaim
    This operation is performed to reclaim space on the deduplication store. This can be a result of the Data Recovery appliance enforcing the retention policy and deleting expired restore points. This operation runs automatically on a daily basis according to the maintenance window. While the reclaim operation is in progress, backups to the deduplication store are not allowed, but restore operations from the deduplication store are allowed.
  62. An administrator is configuring a vSphere HA cluster for three ESXi hosts and their resident virtual machines. The cluster will be configured to support a single host failure. Resource reservations must be enforced during a failover event.

    Assuming default settings, how does HA determine the current failover capacity?

    A. Using the highest CPU reservation and the available memory values for any given virtual machine in the cluster

    B. Using the highest CPU reservation and memory reservation values of any given virtual machine in the cluster

    C. Using an average of the total CPU reservation and memory reservation values of all virtual machines in the cluster

    D. Using an average of total CPU reservation and available memory values of all virtual machines in the cluster
    B. Using the highest CPU reservation and memory reservation values of any given virtual machine in the cluster
  63. What is a valid example of a vSphere Update- Manager orchestrated upgrade?

    A. A virtual machine upgrade that upgrades virtual machine hardware and VMware Tools at me same time

    B. A host upgrade that upgrades and patches multiple ESXi hosts simultaneously

    C. A virtual machine upgrade that upgrades virtual machine hardware and VMware Tools in a staged manner with no virtual machine

    D. A host upgrade that upgrades multiple ESXi hosts in a staged manner with no host downtime
    A

    Update Manager allows you to perform orchestrated upgrades of the ESX/ESXi hosts in your vSphere inventory using a single upgrade baseline. vSphere Update Manager upgrades multiple VMware vSphere components Table 10-1. Upgraded Components Component Upgraded by Update Manager Virtual machine kernel (vmkernel) Yes Service console, where present Yes Virtual machine hardware Yes Virtual Machine Tools Yes Guest operating systems Yes, for SP and patch releases.

    D. Host downtime is inherit to the upgrade process, if it said not vm or cluster downtime it would be accurate.

    This question is all about wording.
  64. Users are having difficulty accessing a web server since a new web application was configured in a virtual machine running on sc-titanrum03.vmeduw.com. The vSphere Client Shows a host cpu uasage Alert. DRS is set to fully automated mode, but the problem has not resolved.

    Which action can resolve the issue?

    A. Hot-add a CPU to the the web server virtual machine.

    B. Add an ESXi host to the cluster

    C. vMotion one or more running virtual machines on the ESXi host running the web server virtual machine to the other ESxi host in the cluster.

    D. Power off one or more virtual machine on the ESXi host running on the Web server virtual machine and migrate them to the other ESXi host in the cluster.
    B

    The fact that DRS has not migrated the webserver indicates that the cluster does not have the required resources to resolve this issue. Adding more resources to the cluster will.
