A 5-node vSAN cluster contains multiple virtual machines, and a vSAN storage policy with the rule
Failures to tolerate set to 1 failure - RAID-5 (Erasure Coding) is assigned. A vSAN administrator
has changed the rile in the assigned policy to 2 failures - RAID-6 (Erasure Coding).
What is the result of this change?
A vSAN administrator is receiving complaints that applications are not performing as expected. The
vSAN administrator opens the vSAN cluster performance charts to try to identify the issue, but the
vSAN cluster performance charts are not available.
Which option should vSAN administrator enable to make these charts available?
A vSAN administrator has been asked to encrypt all traffic for data and metadata across all hosts in a
Which action is necessary to achieve this level of encryption?
An Application Clustering Solution requires an in-guest attachable LUN which can be shared across
two different VMs.
Which vSAN feature can meet this requirement?
All of the virtual machines running on a hybrid vSAN datastore have this storage policy assigned:
Failures to Tolerate (FTT) rule is set to 2 Failures - RAID-1 (Mirroring).
The vSAN administrator needs to reduce the amount of vSAN datastore capacity the virtual machines
Which action should the vSAN administrator take to meet this goal?
A vSAN administrator is looking at adding a new vSAN cluster with hosts that have 512GB memory.
What is the minimum requirement for the nodes flash boot device?
Which VM file type resides in the VM home namespace object on a vSAN datastore?
Virtual machines deployed on Virtual SAN are made up of a set of objects. For example, a VMDK is an
object, a snapshot is an object, VM swap space is an object, and the VM home namespace (where
the .vmx file, log files, etc. are stored) is also an object. Each of these objects is comprised of a set of
components, determined by capabilities placed in the VM Storage Policy.
A newly deployed vSAN cluster runs vSAN 7.0, and the vSAN cluster needs an integration with a
third-party software solution. The software solution provides full app-level redundancy, and it runs
on the vSAN Data Persistence platform.
The administrator configures vSAN Direct Configuration to integrate the third-party storage with
vSAN and now needs to configure a storage policy to make sure the vSAN Direct storage is used by
the vSAN Data Persistence platform third-party software solution.
Which type of storage policy configuration should the administrator use?
An administrator will be performing a rolling upgrade of a vSAN cluster over the weekend. In
preparation, the administrator runs the Data Migration Pre-Check.
Which two items are being checked? (Choose two.)
A vSAN administrator is tasked to perform an upgrade of a vSAN cluster from 7.0 to 7.0 U2, including
firmware and drivers for its hardware. The vSAN administrator already created an image using
vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM).
Prior to selecting Start Remediation, which step should be taken to upgrade the complete vSAN
cluster as a single task?
A vSAN administrator observes that the VMware Skyline Health: Time Synchronization displays one
host that is noncompliant.
What is the meaning of this message?
A host in the cluster experiences a permanent NIC failure, and the replacement part will not arrive
until the next morning. The administrator needs to ensure the availability of the production workload
at all times.
Which step should be taken by the administrator to meet this goal?
An administrator has successfully deployed a new 3-node vSAN Cluster. Prior to deploying any
production workloads on to the new cluster, the administrator must complete a number of Service
Validation and Testing (SVT) checks.
The final check requires the administrator to pull out a disk from one of the vSAN hosts.
Which two outcomes will occur within the vSAN cluster following this action? (Choose two.)
A vSAN administrator wants to install a patch on an existing vSAN cluster. The environment runs
vSphere 7.0, and the patch contains ESXi 7.0 Update 1c. The vSAN administrator will use vSphere
Lifecycle Manager images to add the patch to the proper image and apply it to the vSAN cluster.
Which action should be performed before patching the ESXi hosts in the vSAN cluster?
An administrator has been tasked with physically moving the hosts in a vSAN 7.0 U1 cluster to an
alternative location. All virtual machines, hosts, and the vCenter Server have need safely powered
sown, and the servers have been relocated. Afterwards, the operations engineer needs to bring up
the vSAN cluster again.
Which action is part of this process?
