Section 7 – Establish Service Levels
- Objective 7.4 – Migrate Virtual Machines
The OVF format allows virtual machine templates to be?
OVF enables efficient, flexible, and secure distribution of enterprise software, facilitating the mobility of virtual machines and giving customers vendor and platform independence
What are two benefits of Virtual Compatibility Mode for RDMs, as compared to Physical Compatibility Mode (Choose Two)?
A.Allows for the use of array-based snapshots
B.Allows the use of SAN-aware applications
C.Allows for template creation of the related virtual machine
D.Allows for cloning
Storage options for virtual machines: Raw device mappings, VMFS
There are two types of RDMs: virtual compatibility mode RDMs and physical compatibility mode RDMs. Physical mode RDMs, in particular, have some fairly significant limitations:
No VMware snapshots
No VCB support, because VCB requires VMware snapshots
No cloning VMs that use physical mode RDMs
No converting VMs that use physical mode RDMs into templates
No migrating VMs with physical mode RDMs if the migration involves copying the disk
No VMotion with physical mode RDMs
vCenter Converter allows the following type of conversions (Choose Three)?
A.Virtual to Physical
B.Disk Image to Virtual
C.Physical to Disk Image
D.Virtual to Virtual
E.Physical to Virtual
VMware vCenter Converter
Interoperability: Broad support for source physical machines and image formats Broad support for source physical machines and image formats. Source physical machines running 64-bit Windows XP/2003, WinNT SP4+, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, windows Server 2008, and Linux (RHEL, SUSE
Source third party images: Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft Virtual PC, Parallels Desktop, Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery (formerly called Live State Recovery), Norton Ghost, Acronis, and StorageCraft
Source/Destination virtual machines: VMware Workstation, VMware GSX Server, VMware Player, VMware Server, VMware Fusion, VMware ESX (Managed by VMware VirtualCenter 2.x)
During Guided Consolidation, how is disk space for the virtual machine calculated?
A.The virtual machine disk is equal in size to the source disk
B.The virtual machine disk is sized to the amount of data contained on the source disk
C.The virtual machine disk is sized to 125% of the data contained on the source disk
D.Guided Consolidation prompts for the virtual machine disk size during conversion
vSphere Basic System Administration vCenter Server 4.0 ESX 4.0 ESXi 4.0, page 95.
The following formula is used to resize converted disks:
amount of space used on physical disk * 1.25 = resultant virtual disk size
Virtual disks are set to a size of 4GB or larger.
What is the maximum number of systems guided consolidation can simultaneously analyze?
What’s New in VMware vSphere 4.0
Guided Consolidation Enhancements – The Guided Consolidation service is now a modular plug-in to vCenter Server. This service can be installed on a different system than vCenter Server, allowing vCenter Server to perform optimally with lower overheads around consolidation operations. Guided Consolidation is also able to discover and analyze systems that run non-English versions of Windows. Guided Consolidation can concurrently analyze and make consolidation recommendations for up to 100 physical machines at a given time
Which of the following system images is not a supported import option for VMware Enterprise Converter?
A.Symantec Ghost 8 (.gho)
B.VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) full backup images
C.Acronis True Image 9/10 (.tib)
D.Symantec Ghost 9/10/12 (.sv2i)
Administration Guide Converter Enterprise for VirtualCenter 2.5, page 21.
