An administrator is building a new vSphere Standard Switch with two active uplinks. The physical switch ports for these uplinks are placed in an etherchannel.
Which load balancing policy should the administrator use to support the etherchannel configuration?
A. Route based on IP hash
B. Route based on the originating virtual port
C. Route based on source MAC hash
D. Route based on physical NIC load
Which two traffic types can be enabled on the VMkernel adapters of an ESXi 5.5 host using the vSphere Web Client? (Choose two.)
A. Fault Tolerance Traffic
B. Virtual SAN Traffic
C. iSCSI Traffic
D. Virtual Machine Traffic
An organization is designing a new vSphere cluster to support a new product implementation.
The following challenges have been identified by the vSphere administration team:
– The organization has the vSphere Enterprise License.
– The network team needs to gather virtual machine network statistics over a long period of time.
– The network team needs the ability to quickly assess virtual machine traffic in the event of an attack.
– The network team has previously had problems implementing manual etherchannel configurations on their physical switches, resulting in production outages.
– The new cluster’s initial size is 15 hosts.
The organization is willing to upgrade to vSphere Enterprise Plus licensing if it addresses these challenges.
Which three features of a version 5.5 vSphere Distributed Switch would address these challenges? (Choose three.)
A. LACP in Dynamic Mode
B. Port Mirroring
C. Network vMotion
D. Private VLANs
E. Network I/O Control
Users accessing the WinXP virtual machine shown in the exhibit report intermittent connectivity to the corporate network.
The configuration is as follows:
– This virtual machine runs in a DRS/HA cluster of two ESXi hosts.
– The VCP_DCV_Example vSphere Distributed Switch was recently created.
– The WinXP virtual machine was recently migrated from another vSphere Distributed Switch.
– The WinXP virtual machine was able to connect prior to migration to this switch.
– No changes to the VCP_DCV_Example switch have been made since creation.
Which step should the administrator take to resolve the WinXP virtual machine’s intermittent connectivity to the corporate network?
A. Add the ESXi host to the switch where the virtual machine is currently running
B. Disable Port Blocking on the VCP_DCV_Example switch
C. Disable Port Blocking on the Production port group
D. Enable Network I/O Control on the switch to better balance I/O
An administrator needs to deploy a vSphere solution containing a number of hosts and a vSphere Distributed Switch.
Which steps should the administrator take to accomplish this?
A. Create the vSphere Distributed Switch, deploy the ESXi hosts, and then add each host to the switch.
B. Deploy the ESXi hosts, create an HA/DRS cluster containing the hosts, create the vSphere Distributed
Switch, and then add the cluster to the switch.
C. Create the vSphere Distributed Switch and as each ESXi host is deployed it will be automatically added
to the switch.
D. Deploy the ESXi hosts and then create the vSphere Distributed Switch on the hosts.
An administrator is migrating 135 virtual machines from a vSphere Standard Switch to a vSphere Distributed switch. The migration reports an error and only some of the virtual machines are transferred.
What is causing the error to occur?
A. The vSphere Distributed Switch was created with a single, default port group.
B. The switch has become disconnected from an ESXi host.
C. The port group on the vSphere Distributed Switch was not configured with an Elastic port binding.
D. The virtual machine that failed to transfer did not have a network adapter.
A vSphere administrator needs to perform packet tracing from a Linux virtual machine. The virtual machine is attached to a vSphere Standard Switch configured with several VLANs.
Which approach could the administrator use to configure the network to capture all traffic from the Linux virtual machine?
A. Configure the virtual switch with VLAN Trunking and specify each VLANs on the port group containing
the virtual machine.
B. Configure a vSphere Distributed Switch with VLAN Trunking. Create a port group and configure it with
Promiscuous Mode. Connect the virtual machine to that port group.
C. Configure the port group containing the virtual machine for Promiscuous Mode. Set the port group to
use VLAN 1.
D. Configure a vSphere Distributed Switch with VLAN Trunking. Connect the virtual machine to the switch
and enable Port Mirroring on the port group containing the virtual machine.
Which configuration will block communication between two virtual machines on the same DMZ network?
A. An isolated Private VLAN configured on a distributed switch and the two DMZ server virtual machines
connected to the same port group
B. Two different port groups created on a distributed switch and 1 DMZ server virtual machine connected
to each port group
C. Two different port groups created on a standard switch and 1 DMZ server virtual machine connected to
each port group
D. The security policy exception set to Reject for the switch to which the two DMZ server virtual machines
will be connected
An administrator has configured multi-pathing using an Fiber Channel array in an active-active configuration.
What is the expected behavior of an ESXi host when a failed preferred path becomes available using the Fixed path selection policy for this array type?
A. It automatically reverts to the preferred path.
B. It continues using the current path until it is manually reverted.
C. It resumes load balancing across all available paths.
D. It reverts to the preferred path after the host has been restored and rebooted.
An administrator is deploying vSphere using a NAS device as the shared storage system. The administrator has already created a VMkernel port, enabled the NFS client, and configured a mount point accessible to the hosts.
Which additional configuration is required before the datastore can be used to create virtual machines?
A. The ESXi hosts must have root access to the datastore.
B. The NAS must support NFS version 4.
C. Port binding must be configured on the VMkernel port.
D. The MTU on the VMkernel port must be set to 9000.
