Q & A: 345 Q&As
Click the Exhibit button. An administrator has deployed a new virtual machine on an ESXi 5.x
host. Users are complaining of poor performance on the application running on the virtual
machine. Performance tools display the results shown in the exhibit. Which two tasks might
improve the user experience? (Choose two.)
A. Add a vCPU to the virtual machine
B. Remove CPU affinity on the advanced CPU setting of the virtual machine
C. Migrate the virtual machine to another ESXi host
D. Remove the limit on the CPU settings of the virtual machine
An administrator notices that when a virtual machine is placed into a resource pool, a warning
indicates that the virtual machine will receive a very large percentage of the total shares for
memory. Which action can be taken to resolve this problem?
A. Increase the memory resource allocation to the resource pool.
B. Increase the share value for the resource pool.
C. Change the shares setting from custom to high, medium, or low for the virtual machine.
D. Decrease the memory allocation for the virtual machine.
The Memory Resources panel lets you allocate memory resources for a virtual machine and specify reservations, limits, and shares. Symbolic values Low, Normal, High, and Custom are
compared to the sum of all shares of all virtual machines on the server and, on an ESX host, the
service console. By decreasing the memory share of a particular system, it receives less memory
out of the total available memory.
An administrator views the Fault Tolerance pane of the Summary tab of a virtual machine and
finds that the current status is Not Protected. What are two vSphere Fault Tolerance states that
would cause the virtual machine to not be protected? (Choose two.)
A. Stopped – Fault Tolerance has been stopped on the secondary virtual machine.
B. Need Secondary VM – The primary virtual machine is running without a secondary virtual machine and
is not protected
C. Need Primary VM – The secondary virtual machine is running, and a new primary virtual machine cannot
D. Disabled – Fault Tolerance is disabled.
Reasons for Primary VM Not Protected Status
Create and Configure Resource Pools (14 questions).
Which two conditions prevent the application of a host profile to an ESXi 5.x host? (Choose two.)
A. The host has multiple profiles attached.
B. The host has not been placed into maintenance mode.
C. The host is running virtual machines.
D. The host is an ESXi host.
An administrator is editing the IP allocation policy for a vApp. Which three options are available? (Choose three.)
ACME Junkmail Incorporated has been utilizing templates in their environment. They are running
a 10- node ESXi 5.x Cluster and DRS has not been configured. Several virtual machines have
been deployed from this template and successfully powered on, but a newly deployed virtual
machine will not power on. There appear to be adequate CPU and Memory resources available
on the host. Which three things can be done to allow more virtual machines to be deployed into
the cluster from this template? (Choose three.)
A. Select a different datastore for the virtual machine
B. Move the swap file to a different location
C. Deploy the virtual machine to a different host using the same datastore
D. Enable DRS on the cluster to balance the virtual machine load out across hosts
E. Increase the virtual machine memory reservation
If you make reservations for your virtual machine’s that are equal to the amount of RAM assigned
to them, swapping and page sharing does not occur. You can over commit pretty heavily if you
are comfortable with poorer performance. If you do not set reservations, ESX host creates
a .vswp file equal to the difference between the amount of physical memory assigned to the
virtual machine and the reservation it has. By default, memory reservations are set to 0. If you
have a virtual machine with 2GB of memory without a reservation, it creates a 2GB .vswp file
when it is powered on. The virtual machine starts using the .vswp file if the server is out of
physical RAM. If you set a 1GB reservation, it creates a 1GB .vswp file. The .vswp files are what
allows for memory overcommitment.
What are three valid objects to place in a vApp? (Choose three.)
C. Resource pools
E. Virtual machines
Which three Storage I/O Control conditions might trigger the Non-VI workload detected on the
datastore alarm? (Choose three.)
A. The datastore is connected to an ESX/ESXi 4.0 host that does not support Storage I/O Control.
B. The datastore is on an array that is performing system tasks such as replication.
C. The datastore is utilizing active/passive multipathing or NMP (Native Multi-Pathing).
D. The datastore is storing virtual machines with one or more snapshots.
E. The datastore is connected to an ESX/ESXi 4.0 host that is not managed by vCenter.Answer: ABE
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.NOTE:
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 userdefined 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 user-defined capability at
Which VMware solution uses the security of a vSphere implementation and provides linked-clone
technology to virtual desktops?

Storage vMotion? (Choose two.)

D. The virtual machine has a disk stored on an NFS datastore.
Under which two conditions can vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) provide a
performance benefit? (Choose two.)
A. When a virtual disk has VMDK files stored on an NFS datastore.
B. When a virtual disk is created using the New Virtual Machine wizard.
C. When cloning a virtual machine with snapshots.
D. When a virtual disk is deleted.
An administrator is enabling Enhanced vMotion Compatibility (EVC) in a DRS cluster. The
