(Choose three.) A: Utilizing vSphere CLI and vSphere SDK for Perl scripts. B: Restricting vCenter Server access to only the management network. C: Synchronizing time in the vCenter Server with a NTP source. D: Removing expired and revoked certificates from vCenter Server system.
A customer wants to virtualize an Oracle database with vSphere 6.5, but is concerned about its performance.Which three design elements will ensure optimum performance? (Choose three.) A: Create affinity rules for the virtual machine to a single physical socket. B: Use VMXNET3 for the network adapter. C: Use VMware Paravirtual SCSI adapters for data and log vDisk. D: Enable Hyper-Threading.
A customer is virtualizing a mission-critical Microsoft SQL database and needs a configuration that provides optimal NUMA performance.• There are two possible clusters that the database virtual machine could reside in Cluster A is vSphere 6.0 and Cluster B is vSphere 6.5.• All ESXi hosts contain dual Intel Xeon E5-2650 processors (ie:2 socket, 10 cores per socket) and 256Gb RAM with vNUMA in its default configuration.Given this scenario, which three statements are true? (Choose three.) A: Enabling CPU Hot Add on a virtual machine will disable vNUMA. B: Placing a 10 vCPU VM in Cluster A and configuring it with 2 Sockets and 5 Cores Per Socket will result in 2 vNUMA nodes. C: Placing a 10 vCPU VM in Cluster B and configuring it with 2 Sockets and 5 Cores Per Socket will result in 2 vNUMA nodes. D: Placing the VM in Cluster B and configuring it with 5 Sockets and 2 Cores Per Socket will result in 1 vNUMA node.
A company is conducting a technology refresh and has requested assistance with a vSphere 6.5 design.• The company has a corporate headquarters and two data centers strategically placed around the country, which provide the bulk of the computer power and storage for their customer-facing stores.• The company requires each of its stores to be able to operate independently if connectivity is ever lost.• Presently, all stores are configured differently and must be standardized as part of the technology refresh.• To support store operations, only a dozen applications are required.• Any downtime during store hours could result in significant losses.• Any proposed design must minimize cost.What is a VMware-recommended option for this scenario? A: VMware vSAN cluster with a minimum of three hosts B: VMware vSphere cluster with low-cost iSCSI shared storage C: VMware vSAN Stretched Cluster with nearest regional data center D: VMware vSAN Remote Office Branch Office (ROBO) with two hosts
A company would like to leverage snapshot technology on vSphere 6.5.Which configuration supports taking snapshots? A: Windows Failover Cluster VM with RDM in virtual mode. B: vSphere Fault Tolerance VM. C: Windows Failover Cluster VM with RDM I physical mode D: SQL Always on Availability Group
A business organization has different types of network traffic, and all the types of traffic must be kept separated. The design architect knows that the number of required networks is greater that the number of physical ports in the system. Which three choices can the architect use to keep the traffic separated? (Choose three.) A: Combine vMotion, Management, and vSAN to one VMkernel port. B: Configure VLANs to create separate networks. C: Purchase hardware that supports a greater number of network ports. D: Utilize Private VLANs.
A company is consolidating its IT operations efforts by moving the Finance, IT, and QA departments towards a self-service environment, following SDDC best practices:- All departments have different priorities and expectations for uptime of the required infrastructure and applications.- Project stakeholders are still discussing final approvals for the budget wan the CFO.- To drive down the operating cost of the environment, only blade servers will implement this project.- To ensure business continuity, a colocation provider was chosen to fail over virtual machines.- The implementation of the project will follow a public reference architecture provided by VMware.What is the assumption in this scenario? A: The chosen architecture is sufficient. B: All departments demand different SLAs. C: Final budget approvals are being discussed. D: The environment will be shared by several departments.
A solution architect has been tasked with designing a new environment that meets the needs of a growing company, and has obtained this information.• The current capacity will be exhausted in 180 days, and the new infrastructure must be deployed and in production prior to that.• The new servers have a 90-day delivery time.• A data center for disaster recovery has been selected, and it us 20 miles away and connected by MPLS.• The security team will continue to utilize its current investments and VM Encryption for the new environment.• The backup team currently uses Data Domain, and reports show an 8:1 compression and deduplication ratio for backups. Based on the information obtained, which two statements are assumptions for the new design? (Choose two.) A: MPLS will be used to connect the two data centers. B: There is 180 days left of current capacity. C: Data Domain will get an 8:1 compression and deduplication ratio with the new workloads. D: A disaster will NOT affect both data centers.
A development team must provide layer 2 network isolation between virtual machines that are in the same VLAN. The solutions architect must provide additional security between the virtual machines on the same subnet.How can this be done without consuming more VLANs? A: Use Virtual Switch Tagging. B: Use Private VLANs. C: Use Virtual Guest Tagging. D: Use External Switch Tagging.
