An administrator has just finished deploying a vApp for a web service.
What three options are available to the administrator for IP allocation within the vApp? (Choose three.)
An administrator is working to implement Storage Profiles in their environment.
Which two ways can storage capabilities be generated? (Choose two.)
A. They are generated by Datastore Clusters as LUNs are added to the cluster.
B. They are automatically determined by the Storage Profile when it is created.
C. They can be retrieved from the array through the VMware APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA).
D. They can be manually generated by the administrator.
Understanding Storage Capabilities
A storage capability outlines the quality of service that a storage system can deliver. It is a guarantee that the storage system can provide a specific set of characteristics for capacity, performance, availability, redundancy, and so on. If a storage system uses Storage APIs – Storage Awareness, it informs vCenter Server that it can guarantee a specific set of storage features by presenting them as a storage capability. vCenter Server recognizes the capability and adds it to the list of storage capabilities in the Manage Storage Capabilities dialog box. Such storage capabilities are system- defined. vCenter Server assigns the system-defined storage capability to each datastore that you create from that storage system.
Because multiple system capabilities for a datastore are not supported, a datastore that spans several extents assumes the system capability of only one of its extents. You can create user-defined storage capabilities and associate them with datastores. You should associate the same user-defined capability with datastores that guarantee the same level of storage capabilities. You can associate a user-defined capability with a datastore that already has a system-defined capability. A datastore can have only one system-defined and only one userdefined capability at a time.
Which VMware solution uses the security of a vSphere implementation and provides linked-clone technology to virtual desktops?

An administrator is using Update Manager 5.x to update virtual appliances in a vSphere environment. The environment is using the vCenter Server Virtual Appliance (vCSA).
What would cause the remediation to fail?
A. Updating of the appliance can only be done if the vCenter Server Virtual Appliance (vCSA) has been
put into Maintenance Mode.
B. Remediation must be configured on the Appliance Administration page before use.
C. Remediation of the vCenter Server Virtual Appliance (vCSA) with Update Manager is not supported.
D. Remediation requires the hosts to be connected to vCenter using an IPv4 address.
Update Manager 5.0 does not support virtual machine patch baselines. If a host is connected to vCenter Server by using an IPv6 address, you cannot scan and remediate virtual machines and virtual appliances that run on the host.
An administrator is working to update the hosts and virtual machines in a vSphere 5.x deployment using Update Manager Baselines.
Other than host patches, which three items require a separate procedure or process to update? (Choose three.)
A. Operating system patches
B. Virtual Appliance updates
C. Virtual Machine Virtual Hardware upgrades
D. VMware Tools on machines without VMware Tools already installed
E. Application patches within the virtual machine
Operating system patches are related to operating system so they need a separate procedure altogether. Same is the case with VMware tools and applications patches because applications are stand alone pieces of code that need separate procedure to apply a patch.
An administrator selects the Profile Compliance tab of an vSphere cluster, then selects Check Compliance Now.
Which features requirements are not checked by this?
B. Fault Tolerance
D. Host Profiles

An administrator is troubleshooting an ESXi 5.x host and needs to export diagnostic information. The host is currently managed by a vCenter Server instance.
Which two ways can the information be gathered using the vSphere Client? (Choose two.)
A. Select Home. Under Administration, click System Logs and click the Export System Logs button.
Select the affected ESXi host. Select Select All. Select a location and click Finish.
B. In the vSphere Client, select the affected ESXi host. Right-click the host and select Export Diagnostic Data.
Select a location and click OK.
C. Log in to the ESXi host locally, Select Export System Logs.
D. In the vSphere Client, select the affected ESXi host. Select File, Export and Export System Logs.
Select Select All. Select a location and click Finish.
You can collect information by selecting Home. Under Adminstration, click System logs and click export system logs button. Select the affected ESXi host. Select Select All. Select a location and click Finish. To export system logs from the ESXi host, the alternative way is to select the affected ESXi host in vSphere client. Select File, Export and Export System Logs. Select Select All. Select a location and click Finish
An ESXi 5.x host displays a warning icon in the vSphere console and its summary page lists a configuration issue “SSH for the host has been enabled.” What are two ways to clear this warning? (Choose two.)
A. Using the Security Profile pane of the Configuration tab in the vSphere Client
B. Using the Direct Console User Interface (DCUI)
C. Using the Advanced Settings pane of the Configuration tab in the vSphere Client
D. Using the Networking pane of the Configuration tab in the vSphere Client
What is an accurate statement about the secondary virtual machine of a VM that has VMware Fault Tolerance enabled?
A. The secondary virtual machine cannot be stored on an NFS datastore.
B. The secondary virtual machine is created on the same host as the primary.
C. The secondary virtual machine can prevent other virtual machines from powering up.
D. The secondary virtual machine can be used for load balancing.
What is true about the HA agent on ESXi 5.x hosts?
A. HA agent logs and entries use the prefix aam
B. HA agents are set to start by default
C. HA agents can store configuration information locally
D. vSphere client cannot determine which HA agent is master
