How is changed block tracking (CBT) used in a vSphere implementation?
A. CBT is used by the VMkernel to reduce time needed for virtual machine copy operations.
B. CBT is used by VMware Data Protection (VDP) to reduce time needed for backup jobs.
C. CBT is used by vCenter Server to reduce the size of snapshots.
D. CBT is used by vSphere Replication for synchronous replication operations.
Which vSphere feature creates a copy of a virtual machine that can be stored locally within a cluster or at another site, and provides the ability to rapidly restore a virtual machine within minutes?
A. vSphere Data Protection
B. vSphere Replication
C. vSphere Snapshots
D. vSphere Heartbeat
An administrator is attempting to use Update Manager to patch a cluster of ESXi 5.x hosts.
The administrator needs to stage the patches for a scheduled update after hours. When verifying the hosts after the scheduled upgrade, the administrator determines that one of the hosts was not remediated and patches are not staged. The host is using PXE as its boot method.
What condition would cause this behavior?
A. The host was rebooted prior to the scheduled remediation.
B. Remediating PXE-booted hosts using Update Manager is unsupported.
C. The user account used does NOT have the Remediate Hosts privilege.
D. The RAMdisk on the host has insufficient capacity.
The administrator has deployed a third-party virtual appliance in the organization’s vSphere environment and needs to use Update Manager to maintain the third-party appliance.
How should the administrator accomplish this task with the least administrative effort?
A. Add a new Download Source to Update Manager to obtain updates from the third party
B. Manually download the third-party updates to Update Manager, which will then apply them to the appliance
C. Obtain an update tool from the third party and use it to manage updates to the appliance
D. Identify the third-party appliance from the supported list within Update Manager
For security reasons, SSH and the ESXi Shell have been disabled on a standalone ESXi 5.x host. A vSphere administrator accesses the Direct Console User Interface (DCUI) to examine log files related to a recent connection issue.
Which system log can the administrator access to determine the cause of the issue?
An administrator needs to export system logs for an ESXi 5.5 host to determine the root cause for a host performance issue. This host supports manifest-driven exports of system logs.
Which manifest is selected by default during the export system log wizard?
An ESXi 5.x host disconnects within 60 seconds after the administrator adds it to the vCenter Server inventory. The administrator determines that the issue could be related to a networking problem. Which networking port should the administrator check for connectivity from the host to vCenter Server?
An administrator adds an ESXi 5.x host to the inventory of a vCenter Server that is configured with a vSphere Distributed Switch. The vSphere Web Client indicates that the host is not responding. The administrator determines from the command line that the vpxa agent is stopped.
What should the administrator do to resolve this issue without affecting the uptime of the virtual machines running on the host?
A. Restart the management agents in the host’s DCUI
B. Remove and re-add the host to the vCenter inventory
C. Restart the vCenter Server service
D. Type /etc/vmware/vpxa start from the ESXi command line
An ESXi host’s networking is configured as shown. The virtual machine named Fileserver01 is unable to ping anything on an external network:
A. The vSwitch1 virtual switch does not have an attached vmnic adapter.
B. The Fileserver01 virtual machine is not running.
C. vSwitch0 is configured to reject MAC address spoofing.
D. vmk0 is using a non-routable IP address.
A security audit has revealed that a virtual machine on vSwitch1 is receiving all traffic sent to the virtual switch, violating corporate policy. The vSphere administrator examines the properties for vSwitch1, as shown in the exhibit:
A. The Production port group has the Promiscuous Mode policy set to Accept.
B. vSwitch1 has the Promiscuous Mode policy set to Reject.
C. The Network Failure Detection policy on the Production port group is set to Link Status plus Beaconing.
D. The Network Failure Detection policy on vSwitch1 is set to Link Status only.
