After an upgrade from ESX4.X to ESXi5.0 you notice that when you run the following command via the vMA: "esxcfg-vswif -l" you notice that their are no configure vswif interfaces listed. Why would this be? The Service Console is no longer available with vSphere 5. All vswif interfaces are removed during the upgrade. During the upgrade process, vswif interfaces are disable by default, they'll need to be enable before they will be listed. The wrong command is being used. "vicfg-vswif -l" is the correct command to display all vswif interfaces. During the upgrade process all vswif interfaces are migrated to vmk interfaces.

During the upgrade all Port Groups are moved to Standard Switches. During the upgrade all Port Groups are removed. The Service Console Port Group will need to be recreated. Because ESXi 5.0 has no Service Console, upgrading from ESX 4.x to ESXi 5.0 removes the Service Console port group.

Distributed Power Management (DPM) requires which technology to be available on the NIC?

Wake On LAN (WOL) DNS BMC NetBIOS I selected WOL on my Test King test exam and got this wrong and now i get it wrong on SLOG when i select BMC... I have my VCP 5 exam tomorrow... Can anyone confirm if this answer should be WOL or BMC? Both seem to be appropiate answers to me..

remain open after the upgrade to ESXi 5.0.2)Custom ports that were opened by using the ESX/ESXi 4.1 esxcfg-firewall command do not do not get copied during the upgrade to ESXi 5.0. -> Doesn't answer 1 and 2 mean exactly the same?! Your colleague has accidentally allocated more vRAM than your company are licensed for. What will happen to your virtual machines? 1)All VM's will be Powered Off 2)New VM's can not be Powered On 3)VMware will be notified 4)Nothing will happen -> For Essentials answer 2 would be right, but for the other vSphere licenses it would be 4.

VM's swap file size is it's memory limit minus the amount memory reserved for it.

Good stuff...scored pretty well on my first try

Wooh! Just took this test and passed with 60% considering we're still on ESX 4 and vSphere 4.1 at work. Pat on my back and thanks Simon.

I'm not an expert but I think the question "ESXi 5.0 supports only LAHF and SAHF CPU instructions?" needs re-wording.

VCP5 Practice Exam Questions Part 1 (Beta) - The SLOG SimonLong/Blog

Page 12 of 16

ESXi 5.0 _requires_ those instructions, but it supports others (eg. POP/PUSH)

So...did Test King blag these from you or the other way round? Because all 50 of these questions are in the test king set and you've even included terrible grammar.

Take a guess...

Hey Simon, Just finished your VCP5 beta exam and I have one small comment: this question "What the packaging format used by the VMware ESXi Image Builder?" is a little misleading. You may want to reword it since there are multiple right answers listed. Other than that, good job! Paul

Also there is a question that states "Your colleague has accidentally allocated more vRAM than your company are licensed for. What will happen to your virtual machines?" None of the answers are correct "All VM's will be Powered Off; New VM's can not be Powered On; VMware will be notified; Nothing will happen"

VCP5 Practice Exam Questions Part 1 (Beta) - The SLOG SimonLong/Blog

Per the pricing and packaging whitepaper; there is no technical enforcement of vRAM limits (except for free, Essentials, Essentials+ editions) What will happen is vCenter generates an alert if you are out of vRAM licensing compliance. The vRAM licensing is based on 12 month average usage. So allocating more vRAM than your company has entitlement for does not bring you out of compliance until the 12 month average exceeds your licensed vRAM. The most correct answer is "Nothing will happen", but it's not listed as such
