Which of the following is a major design goal of the vSphere CPU scheduler? Choose one.

A:

Fairness

Efficiency

Throughput

Isolation
You are trying to hot-add an IDE disk to a running
virtual machine; however the option is greyed out. What
could be the possible cause for this? Choose one.

A:

The virtual machines guest operating
system does not support hot adding
hardware

It is not possible to hot-add IDE disks
to a running virtual machine

The virtual machine is does not have
VMware Tools installed

The vSphere host does not have any
unassigned physical IDE disks
Your customer has an application solution that runs 4
virtual machines. They need to replicate this solution
repeatedly over a period of time into a number of
separate production instances. What deployment
method would you recommend to your customer as
being the most suitable for their needs? Choose one.

A:

Power off the virtual machines and
convert them to 4 templates. These
4 templates should be used to
deploy 4 new virtual machines
when required.

When a new instance of the
solution is required the 4 new
virtual machines should be cloned
from the original application
solution virtual machines.

Convert the 4 virtual machines to a
single template. When a new
instance of the application solution
is required deploy the virtual
machines using this template.

Make multiple clones of the running
virtual machines and copy them to
secondary storage until they are
required. Migrate the clones to
production as required.
In order to ensure that you can successfully replicate
between one environment and another you must verify
that your customers virtual infrastructure respects
certain limits before you start replication. Which of the
following apply? Choose two.

A:

You can only deploy one
vSphere replication appliance
per vCenter Server instance

You must be able to allocate
4GB of RAM and 4 vCPUs for
each appliance

You should ensure
compatibility with all vSphere
features in use

Deploying more than one
vSphere Replication
appliance is prohibited

Your customer reports that an application in their virtual machine appears to be
underperforming and performance counters show that the application is utilizing
95% of CPU resources. The customer wants to be able to hot-add additional
CPUs to the virtual machine to resolve this without shutting the machine down,
but cannot. Which of the following are possible reasons? Choose two.

A:

The guest operating
system must support
hot add of CPU

The virtual machine
must be shutdown in
order to add CPU

VMware tools is not
installed in the virtual
machine

An Enterprise Plus
license is required to
hot add CPU


When designing for vMotion which of the following should you consider?
Choose three.


All hosts must
use CPUs from
the same vendor
and family

All hosts must
have Gigabit
Ethernet
network
connectivity

The solution
should include
Shared Storage
for virtual
machines

You must
specify that VMs
run compatible
guest operating
systems

You must
specify that
vSphere hosts
are licensed with
an Enterprise
license
You are discussing the use of
virtual machine templates for
deployment with a customer.
The customer is unsure of the
differences between the
templates and clones and does
not understand why they should
create templates at all. Which of
the following examples would
you use to demonstrate the
difference between them?
Choose two.

A:

Templates cant be
edited or powered on
and so are ideally
suited for consistently
deploying large
numbers of identically
configured virtual
machines

Clones are exact
copies of virtual
machines at the time
of cloning and so are
best suited for quickly
creating test and
development copies
of virtual machines.

Clones include all
snapshots that are
active on a virtual
machine so you must
use clones if you
want to make a copy
of virtual machine
snapshots

Templates are
extremely portable
and can be used to
export and transport
fully configured virtual
machines outside of
your vSphere
environment


Your customer is investigating DR solutions for their vSphere production environment
where they use DRS, HA and vMotion extensively. They have found that the cost
estimates for storage solutions that can support hardware replication from their
existing site is prohibitive. You are considering a proposing vSphere Replication as a
solution for them but you must ensure that their environment can support it. Which of
the following items must you check in order to be confident that vSphere Replication
will be suitable? Choose two.

A:

Confirm that they
do not use
Storage vMotion

Confirm that they
are using iSCSI
storage only

Confirm that they
have Enterprise
Plus licenses

Confirm that a 15
minute RPO
meets their needs

You have proposed a solution for a customer to extend an existing vSphere
cluster that supports HA and DRS where all virtual machines run Windows
2008. The existing cluster uses Intel Xeon X5650 CPUs, and you have specified
the same CPUs for the new hosts in your proposal. The customer has
challenged your design, indicating that they believe there are more cost
effective hosts available that use AMD CPUs. What major impact would
choosing the AMD based hosts have? Choose one.


A:

vMotion, and fully
automated DRS, would
no longer work between
all hosts

HA could not be used as
VMs might crash if
restarted on the new
hosts

DRS could only continue
to be used if it is
reconfigured to use Cold
Migration

The customer would have
to create an EVC DRS
cluster to support both
host types
Your customer has a vCenter Server installation that uses a database located on
a separate Microsoft SQL 2008 server. They are now planning to install VMware
vSphere Update Manager. Which of the following must they have before they

A unique database on
a different Microsoft
SQL Server

A server with at least
20GB of free space for
patch data

A vSphere Standard,
Enterprise or
Enterprise Plus license

A unique database on
any supported
database server

it can only perform full backups. They are interested in using the vSphere
Data Protection appliance to replace their existing VM backup solution, but
would like to know more information regarding its benefits. Which of the
following are benefits of using VDP? Choose two.

A:

VDP uses vSphere
replication to recover virtual
machines and files from
another vCenter Server

VDP uses changed block
tracking to minimize the
amount of data to process
for each backup

VDP does not require
additional management
software

VDP can only restore files
for powered on virtual
machines
You have a customer who has been testing a vSphere 5.1 solution for application
development that will require virtual machines with up to 64vCPUs. They have
successfully tested smaller virtual machines but they cannot power on a virtual

free version of VMware
vSphere Hypervisor

The host is not licensed
for the correct amount
of physical cores and
memory

The customer has not
disabled transparent
page sharing on their
ESXi hosts

The host is not licensed
for the correct amount
of physical cores

A customer wants to use VDP in their environment. They will be backing up 90
virtual machines in total, and want to be able to backup seven of virtual

Your customer reports that several virtual machines are performing
slower than expected. When you investigate the issue, you find that
each virtual machine has multiple active snapshots. You also find that
the amount of available storage space on the datastore where the virtual
machines are located is very low. What recommendations would you
give to your customer with regards to using snapshots? Choose two.

A:

Snapshots should not
be used for a long
period of time on
production systems

Snapshots can only be
supported in
conjunction with full
virtual machine
backups

Use Storage vMotion to
convert the virtual
machine disk files to
thin provisioned disks
