An administrator is considering using NPIV to assign WWNs to virtual machines. Virtual machine portability is a major concern.
Why would NPIV be inappropriate for this deployment?
A. Virtual machines using NPIV must use DirectPath I/O.
B. Storage vMotion is not supported using NPIV.
C. vMotion is not supported using NPIV.
D. Enabling NPIV requires SR-IOV supported hardware.
An administrator of a secure environment needs to add an iSCSI target to a new ESXi host using the vSphere client. The administrator has configured discovery and performed a rescan operation, but the iSCSI target does NOT appear.
Which action should the administrator take for the target to appear in the vSphere client?
A. Configure appropriate CHAP authentication settings
B. Bind a VMkernel port to the iSCSI initiator
C. Configure Jumbo Frames prior to adding iSCSI targets
D. Enable iSCSI in a vSphere Distributed Switch configuration
Which field should an administrator add to a Virtual SAN Disk Group under the Device Backing settings to monitor the health of disks in the Disk Group?
B. Operational Status
D. Transport Type
An administrator has created a Virtual SAN Cluster using Automatic Mode Disk Groups. There is very little storage space left in the cluster. The administrator has access to an iSCSI storage array.
Which approach should the administrator take to expand the Virtual SAN Cluster?
A. Add new hosts to the cluster with available local disks then click the Claim Disks icon in the Disk
Management section under the Virtual SAN tab.
B. Add new disks to the hosts in the cluster then click the Claim Disks icon in the Disk Management
section under the Virtual SAN tab.
C. Add new hosts to the cluster with available local disk. No further action is required to claim the added
D. Provision new LUNs on the iSCSI storage and present one LUN to each host in the cluster. No further
action is required to claim the added storage.
A vSphere administrator needs to place an ESXi host in maintenance mode to replace a hardware component. This host is a member of a Virtual SAN cluster that uses Automatic Mode Disk Groups. Availability of virtual machines running on this host is critical. HA and DRS are enabled on the Virtual SAN Cluster. Otherwise, the Virtual SAN cluster uses default values.
Which action should the administrator take to automatically guarantee availability of virtual machines with the fastest migration time?
A. Select Enter Maintenance Mode and accept the default values
B. Select Enter Maintenance Mode and select Full Data Migration option
C. Select Enter Maintenance Mode and select No Data Migration option
D. Migrate the virtual machines to another host and datastore then select Enter Maintenance Mode
What is a characteristic of Virtual SAN?
A. It supports Virtual Machine Storage Policies.
B. It supports multiple Virtual SAN clusters for each host.
C. It supports native snapshots and SE Sparse disks.
D. It supports storage attached through USB, Fibre Channel, or iSCSI.
Which two steps can an administrator take to upgrade an existing VMFS2 datastore to VMFS5? (Choose two.)
A. Attach the VMFS2 datastore to an ESX 3.x host and upgrade it to VMFS3
B. Attach the VMFS2 datastore to the vSphere 5 host and upgrade it to VMFS3
C. Upgrade the datastore from VMFS3 to VMFS5 on a vSphere 5 host
D. Upgrade the ESX host attached to the storage to vSphere 5
A customer needs to select an appropriate Path Selection Policy (PSP) for their storage array. There is no requirement for a preferred path. The policy should not select a new path unless the current one fails.
Which PSP meets the requirement?
B. Round Robin
C. Most Recently Used
D. Asymmetric Logical Unit Access
An administrator needs to unmount a datastore that is also used for HA storage heartbeats.
What is the least disruptive method for an administrator to perform this activity on a slave HA host?
A. On the Datastore Heartbeating tab, unmount the datastore normally and confirm a new datastore has
B. On the Datastore Heartbeating tab, specify an alternate datastore, then unmount the datastore normally.
C. Disable HA datastore heartbeats, then unmount the datastore.
D. Reduce the number of heartbeat datastores, then remove the datastore from the heartbeat list.
When deploying two sibling resource pools (RP1 and RP2), an administrator needs to make all resources in RP1 available to virtual machines in RP2.
Which configuration should the administrator use to meet this requirement?
A. Set the Reservation of RP2 to 0
B. Set the Reservation of RP1 to 0
C. Set the Limit of RP1 to Unlimited
D. Set the Limit of RP2 to Unlimited
