Table 7-1. ESX Required Partitions
Mount Point Type Size Location Partition Description
/boot ext3 The ESX boot disk requires 1.25 GB of free space and includes the /boot and
vmkcore partitions. The /boot partition alone requires 1100MB.
/ ext3 Calculated dynamically based on the size of the /usr partition. By default, the
minimum size is 5GB and no /usr partition is defined.
What are two reasons why a company would choose to use VMware Server 1.x instead of
using ESX Server 3.x? (Choose two.)
A. ESX Server 3.x does not support the storage hardware the company wants to use.
B. The company wants to utilize NIC teaming for network path failover and load
C. VMware Server 1.x is a lower-cost solution for departmental virtualization projects.
D. The company wants to virtualize a large number of physical machines running legacy
operating systems in their datacenter.
E. VMware Server 1.x allows users to run the same number of virtual machines per CPU
core as ESX Server 3.x does at the same performance levels at a lower cost.
A company wants to install Application Y in a virtualized environment. The underlying
operating system has to be Windows NT 4.0 SP6a. In a physical environment, the
application and supporting software have very strict minimum hardware requirements.
Which requirements prohibit the use of an application inside a virtual machine? Select all
A. 4 GB RAM
B. 2 CPUs
C. 8 separate disks
D. 3 NICs
E. The other options are all false. No requirement prohibit the use.
None of the other options are correct.
Virtual Machine Maximums
Table 1 contains configuration maximums related to virtual machines.
SCSI controllers per virtual machine 4
Devices per SCSI controller 15 [C incorrect]
Devices per virtual machine (Windows) 60
Devices per virtual machine (Linux) 60
Size of SCSI disk 2TB
Number of virtual CPUs per virtual machine 4 [B incorrect]
Size of RAM per virtual machine 65532MB (64GB ? 4MB) [A incorrect]
Number of NICs per virtual machine 4 [D incorrect]

Which statement is true about the installation of Virtual Infrastructure Web Access?
A. It is always installed on VirtualCenter and is optional on ESX Server.
B. It is optional on both ESX Server and VirtualCenter.
C. It is always installed on ESX Server and VirtualCenter.
D. It is always installed on ESX Server and is optional on VirtualCenter.
ESX Server 3 Installation Guide ESX Server 3.5 and VirtualCenter 2.5, page 14, 81,
A browser lets you download the VI Client from the VirtualCenter Server or ESX Server
hosts. When you have appropriate login credentials, Web Access also lets you perform
limited management of your VirtualCenter Server and ESX Server hosts.
The VMware ESX Server 3.5 installation includes the following components:
VMware ESX Server – Software to manage and serve virtual machines.
VMware VI Web Access – Software to allow Web browser access to the ESX Server host
Note there is no option to deselect the VMware VI Web Access component during the
installation, so it is always installed on ESX Server.
Your desktop PC, like all desktop PCs at your office, has the Virtual Infrastructure Client
application installed. Your PC cannot connect to a certain virtual machine (VM) on your
ESX Server. Which troubleshooting test would be LEAST helpful in determining the
cause of this problem?
A. try to connect to a different VM
B. try to ping the DNS hostname of your service console
C. try to ping the IP address of a VM that is known to be up and working
D. try to ping the IP address of your service console
Ping is used to test connectivity. If you know you are trying to troubleshoot connectivity,
pinging a VM that is already up and working would be unlikely to indicate why your PC
cannot connect to another virtual machine.
ESX 3.0 Server supports access to _____ LUNs during the initial installation process.
ESX Server 3 Installation Guide ESX Server 3.5 and VirtualCenter 2.5, page 83.
Although ESX Server supports up to 256 LUNs for operation, the installer supports a
maximum of 128 LUNs
