An architect is configuring BCSD to design SRDF/S between two new PowerMax arrays. The architect
has completed the tasks for the local side of the solution, including RA Port Group, Replication
Group, and site switch.
What is the correct order of steps the architect needs to take to complete the SRDF setup?
When implementing SRDF/Metro with Array Witness, what is a requirement of the witness array?
A storage administrator uses Unisphere for PowerMax to provision new storage from a VMAX All
Flash array. Which Workload Type is recommended for a combination of small and large block I/O
What is a characteristic of a Secure Snapshot?
How many hosts are supported by PowerPath and PowerPath/VE in the FX software package?
An architect uses the following command to collect data from a HP-UX host when designing a
solution in BCSD:
sar d b interval count >> hostname.sar.date.txt
What does the b flag in the command represent?
What happens to the space used for SnapVX delta tracks that are unique to a terminated snapshot?
The Reserved Capacity for a Storage Resource Pool (SRP) on a VMAX All Flash array is set to 15%. A
TimeFinder SnapVX snapshot is created for a Storage Group containing 10 devices. An application is
actively performing read and write I/O to these devices. Allocation for the SRP reaches 85%.
What happens to the snapshot?
Which director emulating performs internal array operations and provides data services?
A storage architect is demonstrating to a customer how they can register vCenter and ESXi servers,
view all relevant storage related objects of an ESXi server, and troubleshoot storage performance.
Which system view in Unisphere can be used to do these things?
Which legacy modes are supported in TimeFinder SnapVX?
Refer to the exhibit.
An SRDF/A solution with BCSD is designed and the results are shown in the exhibit. A customer
requirement was a five-minute RPO. In the exhibit shown, the RPO is above the customer
How can the five-minute RPO requirement be met?
At a disaster planning meeting, an architect is presented with the following facts by a client:
A Unix host is replicating storage from a Production PowerMax to a VMAX 250FX.
RDF pairs have been split with Production and DR hosts accessing their respective storage.
Invalid tracks have started to build against PowerMax and VMAX 250FX.
The client now wants to bring production back to PowerMax, discarding the VMAX 250FX updates
while keeping the updates on the PowerMax. What is the correct action to take?
A storage architect is evaluating the performance of a PowerMax array during business hours. They
want to know how much extra load the PowerMax can handle without significant performance
degradation. The Workload Planner is used to identify the hot spots during the recurring backup
Between 9:30 PM and 1:30 AM and between 3:15 AM and 5:30 AM, backups are causing the
PowerMax to exceed the best practice recommendation. The Recurring System Data Exclusion
Periods chart is used to filter out these hot spots. After running this workload planning for a few
weeks, they notice that the selection of records they previously made are showing different numbers
than when they started viewing the report, several weeks ago.
What is the explanation for this behavior?
A storage administrator is provisioning storage on a PowerMax 2000 array. The application requires
fast reads and the highest possible data protection.
Which RAID level should be recommended?
