- Objective 8.6 – Create and Respond to vCenter Connectivity Alarms
An administrator is responsible for enabling file access for desktop users. A number of users have logged complaints that they cannot access their files. An alert in the vSphere client states that storage connectivity to all hosts has been triggered. The ABC storage screen indicates everything is connected, but the alert has not been acknowledged. Which of the following would successfully correct the user access issue?
A.Reconnect the storage containing the users files to the host which is running the File sharing virtual machine.
B.Tell each user to reboot their computers.
C.Rescan the storage on the File sharing virtual machine on which the users are seeing the problem.
D.Rescan the storage on all the hosts in the cluster.
Perform a rescan each time you make one of the following changes
*Zone a new disk array on the SAN to an ESX/ESXI host.
*Create new LUNs on a SAN
*Change the path masking on a host
*Make a change to a host in a cluster
Recently, a ABC network interface card in an ESX 4 host has been experiencing inconsistent connectivity states. Which of the following two methods could be used to quickly identify the issue and immediately notify an administrator so the issue can be resolved (Choose Two) ?
A.Set up an alarm with the Network Redundancy Degraded trigger and configure an SNMP trap for notification when the connection is lost
B.Set up an alarm with the Lost Network Connectivity trigger to send an e-mail for notification when The connection is lost
C.Set up an alarm with the Lost Network Connectivity trigger and configure an SNMP trap for notification when the connection is lost
D.Set up an alarm with the Lost Network Redundancy trigger to send an e-mail for notification when the connection is lost
Users are complaining that they cannot access their files located on a file server virtual machine. The vSphere client shows a triggered alarm stating disk latency is beyond the default threshold for the datastore where the user file server is located. The Path Selection Policy has been set by the ESX Host to Fixed with default path settings. Which of the following two options could be used to increase performance of the file
server VM (Choose Two)?
A.Change the Path Selection Policy to Round Robin
B.Change the Path Selection Policy to Most Recently Used (MRU)
C.Use disk shares to increase the priority for the datastore housing the file server VM
D.Use Storage VMotion to move the file server VM to a datastore with lower latency
