During a physical network reconfiguration, an ESXi host briefly lost connection to the management network. High Availability (HA) began powering off the virtual machines residing on the affected host to be restarted on an unaffected host in the cluster.
Which setting should the administrator configure to prevent this behavior in the future?
A. Host isolation response
B. Host monitoring
C. VM monitoring
D. Admission control
A vSphere administrator needs to increase the capacity of an existing Storage Distributed Resource Scheduler (SDRS) datastore cluster. The storage administrator has provisioned two new NFS datastores to be added to the cluster.
The vSphere administrator receives an error message, preventing the administrator from adding the newly provisioned datastores to the cluster.
What is the likely reason that the action failed?
A. There are virtual machines running on the datastores being added to the cluster.
B. The datastores in the SDRS cluster are VMFS datastores.
C. The datastores in the existing cluster have hardware acceleration enabled and the new datastores do not.
D. The SDRS cluster has not been placed into maintenance mode.
A Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) cluster is displaying a message that recommends the migration of virtual machines, even though the cluster is currently balanced.
What is the likely reason for this?
A. The DRS cluster does not satisfy the resource pool reservations.
B. The DRS cluster is not configured with shared storage.
C. The DRS cluster is in a critical state.
D. The DRS cluster contains hosts with CPU compatibility issues.
Which workflow should the administrator follow to create a High Availability (HA) cluster?
A. Select a datacenter, create a cluster in the datacenter, add resources to the cluster, enable HA, and
configure HA-specific settings
B. Select a resource pool, create an HA Cluster in the resource pool, add resources to the cluster,
configure HA-specific settings, and enable HA
C. Select a datacenter, create an HA Cluster, add resources to the cluster, configure HA-specific settings,
and enable HA
D. Select a resource pool, create a cluster in the pool, add resources to the cluster, enable HA, and
configure HA-specific settings
A vSphere administrator attempts to move a powered on virtual machine into a resource pool that is configured in an HA/DRS cluster. The operation fails.
What condition would cause this behavior?
A. HA admission control prevented the movement of the virtual machine due to insufficient resources.
B. Resource pool admission control prevented the movement of the virtual machine due to insufficient resources.
C. The virtual machine was not powered off before being moved into the resource pool.
D. The virtual machine’s hardware level did not match the level of the existing virtual machines in the resource pool.
An administrator removes a virtual machine from a resource pool and places it in the DRS root resource pool. Users report the performance of the application running on the virtual machine has improved. The virtual machine relocation was the only change that occurred.
What explains the change in application performance?
A. The memory, storage, and/or CPU settings of the original resource pool restricted access to resources
for the virtual machine.
B. The configured memory, storage and/or CPU shares on the root resource pool are higher than the
original resource pool.
C. The memory, storage and/or CPU settings on the root resource pool restricted access to resources
for the virtual machine
D. The configured memory storage and/or CPU reservations on the root resource pool are higher than
the original resource pool.
An application team is implementing a new solution in the virtualized environment. The application vendor states the application is memory intensive. The application is very unstable when operating without adequate on-demand access to physical memory. The application’s virtual machines are assigned to the Mission Critical resource pool.
Which resource pool setting will help ensure the application has adequate access to memory?
A. Memory reservation
B. High memory share value
C. Unlimited memory
D. Expandable reservation
What will cause the validation of a vMotion migration to fail?
A. A virtual machine configured for CPU affinity
B. A virtual machine configured with a local .vswp file
C. A virtual machine configured to use NUMA
D. A virtual machine configured with a shared Raw-Device Mapped disk
A vSphere administrator is attempting to migrate a virtual machine, but the progress bar for the migration remains at 10%.
Which issue could be preventing the vMotion migration?
A. A networking problem between the source and destination hosts exists at the physical layer.
B. The virtual machine is not on shared storage visible to the source and destination hosts.
C. The vMotion migration priority for this migration was set to High.
D. The vMotion network is saturated.
An administrator needs to migrate a virtual machine from one datastore to another, but the virtual machine has a snapshot. The virtual machine is running on an ESXi 5.x host.
Which action must the vSphere administrator take to ensure that the snapshot data remains intact?
A. Perform a standard Storage vMotion migration.
B. Consolidate the snapshot and then perform a Storage vMotion migration.
C. Perform a Storage vMotion migration and then copy the snapshot file to the new location.
D. Delete the snapshot and then perform the Storage vMotion migration.
