Question: While assessing the requirements for a customers virtualization project, you find that your
solution will need to support a clustered application that must have direct access from virtual machines
running on different hosts to shared LUNs on the physical storage system. Which types of storage could be
used to support the requirements of these particular virtual machines? Choose two.

Question: Your client has reported that new virtual machines (VMs) that they have created do not perform as
well as existing VMs that you had configured previously for them. They have also noticed that some
management features do not appear to be available for these new VMs. Which VMware component has most
likely NOT been configured for these new VMs? Choose one.
Incorrect response(s):
Virtual Machine Monitor
Question: Which of the following are physical components of a vSphere 5.5 datacenter? Choose three.
Incorrect response(s):
iSCSI SAN Array
Storage networks
Note: This response is either incorrect, or additional responses may be required to receive a 100% score for this question.

Question: Your customer has decided to approve a design that includes automated load balancing between
datastores and dynamic allocation of I/O resources to virtual machines. What is the minimum vSphere
license that can be used for the hosts in this solution? Choose one.
Incorrect response(s):
Essentials Plus

Missed Questions:
Question: Which of the following are vSphere 5.5 infrastructure services? Choose three.
Incorrect response(s):
VMFS
Distributed Switches
Note: This response is either incorrect, or additional responses may be required to receive a 100% score for this question.

Question: A customer wants a solution that can automatically restart virtual machines following a physical
system failure. It must automatically distribute virtual machine workloads across the vSphere hosts in your
design. Which specific vSphere distributed features must you include in your design? Choose two.
Incorrect response(s):
HA
Storage vMotion
Note: This response is either incorrect, or additional responses may be required to receive a 100% score for this question.

Missed Questions:
Question: Your customer is concerned that vCenter will become a significant risk in their environment if it is

virtualized in the same environment that it manages. You point out to them that, in fact, running vCenter as a
VM is not only supported by VMware but is recommended because - why? Choose two reasons.
Incorrect response(s):
vSphere High Availability can and will restart a failed vCenter Server on another host in a vSphere cluster if the host
it is running on fails
vSphere Fault tolerance can be used to run a secondary copy of the vCenter VM for immediate failover on another
host if the primary copy fails
Note: This response is either incorrect, or additional responses may be required to receive a 100% score for this question.

Question: Your customer has specified that they require a solution that can automatically restart virtual
machines reliably if their physical host crashes. Which vSphere feature provides this functionality? Choose
one.
Incorrect response(s):
DRS
Question: You are installing a vCenter instance and Single Sign-On (SSO) on a Server. During the SSO
installation you experience issues and cannot complete the installation. What is the most likely cause of a
failure at this stage? Choose one.
Incorrect response(s):
The SSO server is not correctly connected to Active Directory

Test Status: Failed


Percent Correct: 74.06%
Attempts Remaining: 98

Missed Questions:
Question: You have a customer who has been testing a vSphere 5.5 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 machine which has been created with 64 vCPUs. The virtual machine is
correctly registered in vCenter Server. What is the most likely cause of the issue? Choose one.
Incorrect response(s):
The host is not licensed for the correct amount of physical cores and memory
Question: 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.
Incorrect response(s):
DRS could only continue to be used if it is reconfigured to use Cold Migration
VMotion
Question: 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.
Incorrect response(s):
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.


Templates are extremely portable and can be used to export and transport fully configured virtual machines outside
of your vSphere environment
Note: This response is either incorrect, or additional responses may be required to receive a 100% score for this question.

Question: Your customers existing backup solution can backup virtual machines but 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.
Incorrect response(s):
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
Note: This response is either incorrect, or additional responses may be required to receive a 100% score for this question.

Question: You are engaged in the deployment phase of vSphere Data Protection Advanced (VDPA). However,
you find that your colleague has not signed off on all of the installation pre-requisites. Which of the following
are required in order to successfully deploy and manage the VDPA appliance? Choose three.
Incorrect response(s):
vCenter Server
vSphere Web Client
vCenter Operations Manager
Note: This response is either incorrect, or additional responses may be required to receive a 100% score for this question.
