Using the vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA) Manager to view the Appliances Status column, what are three valid states? (Choose three.)
A virtual machine requires a 4TB disk for application data. The storage administrator has already created and presented a 4TB LUN to an ESXi 5.x host. The host is currently configured with a single 500GB VMFS5 datastore.
What is the next step the vSphere administrator must use to provision the data disk?
A. Create a virtual compatibility mode RDM mapping to the 4TB LUN.
B. Create a physical compatibility mode RDM mapping to the 4TB LUN.
C. Expand the existing VMFS volume to 4TB. Create a physical compatibility mode RDM mapping to
the 4TB LUN.
D. Expand the existing VMFS volume to 4TB. Create a virtual compatibility mode RDM mapping to the
Which two statements are true about shared storage capabilities on NFS datastores supported by ESXi 5.x? (Choose two.)
A. You can create Fault Tolerant virtual machines
B. You can mount up to 256 NFS datastores
C. You can use VMware Storage APIs with all NFS datastores
D. You can use Storage vMotion from a virtual-mode RDM

A vSphere 5 environment has an ESXi 5 x host configured to boot from a Software iSCSI adapter.
What is the expected outcome if the administrator attempts to disable the iSCSI Software adapter?
A. The adapter will be disabled, but is re-enabled the next time the host boots up.
B. The adapter will be disabled and the host will not boot the next time the host boots up
C. The adapter will not be disabled and the vSphere Client will return an error message
D. The adapter will be enabled, but the host will boot into troubleshooting mode the next time the host boots
A host failure occurs in vSphere HA cluster, but virtual machines from the failed host are not restarted on the surviving nodes in the cluster.
Which two conditions explain this behavior? (Choose two)
A. HA has been configured to use a dedicated failure host, and the failed host is designated failover host.
B. An anti-affinity rule configured and restarting the VMs would place them on the same host.
C. The virtual machines on the failed host are HA disabled.
D. Host Monitoring is disabled
Which two methods can be used to migrate a virtual machine from a vNetwork Standard to a vNetwork Distributed Switch? (Choose two)
A. Edit the virtual adapter settings for the ESXi host and select a dvPort group from the list.
B. Migrate the port group containing the virtual machine from a vNetwork Standard Switch using the
Migrate Virtual machine networking option.
C. Use the Migrate Virtual machine networking option to select the virtual machine from a list of virtual
D. Edit the Network Adapter settings for the virtual machine and select a dvPort group from the list.
Assuming that the appropriate HA configuration options have been selected, in which two situations would vSphere HA be unable to restart virtual machines? (Choose two.)
A. A storage error has occured on the fiber channel storage array.
B. An ESXi host in the cluster becomes isolated from the network
C. An ESXi host was automatically put into Standby Mode
D. Licensing was not updated after an upgrade from vSphere 4.x
vSphere HA will not restart virtual machines if the storage error occurs on the fibre channel storage array or the licensing has not been updates after the upgrade from vSphere 4.x.
What do changes made to resources reserved by a resource pool affect in the resource hierarchy?
A. Child pools
B. Host pools
C. Sibling and parent pools
D. Root resource pools
A resource pool can contain child resource pools, virtual machines, or both. You can create a hierarchy of shared resources. The resource pools at a higher level are called parent resource pools. Resource pools and virtual machines that are at the same level are called siblings. The cluster itself represents the root resource pool. If you do not create child resource pools, only the root resource pools exist. In the following example, RP-QA is the parent resource pool for RP-QA-UI. RP-Marketing and RPQA are siblings. The three virtual machines immediately below RP-Marketing are also siblings. Figure 8-1. Parents, Children, and Siblings in Resource Pool Hierarchy
How can virtual machines be moved between datacenters?
A. High-Availability failover
B. Cold migration
C. vMotion migration
D. Storage vMotion migration
An administrator decides to use Data Recovery to back up some key virtual machines. What is the process to install Data Recovery?
A. Download the executable from VMware.com and run from a machine with the vSphere Client installed.
B. Use the vCenter Installer from the original vCenter media and select VMware Data Recovery
C. Download the current OVF package from VMware.com onto a machine with the vSphere Client installed
and use the Deploy OVF from Template option.
D. Download the vmdk and vmx files from VMware.com and copy to a datastore. Right-click the vmx file
and select Add to Inventory.
