And then, there was a winner!
Matt Liebowitz is the winner of the first VCAP-DCA Voucher! Congrats sir. Details will be e-mailed to you shortly.
Stay tuned, we still have at least one more voucher to give away. This time with a live lab! Now, onto the video, flash cards, and correct answers:
Here they are, as submitted. You can use them in conjunction with either the video or the flash cards for your own study pleasure:
1. 300 (VCAP passing score)
2. Name a requirement for NPIV – ESX HBAs must support NPIV
3. Name a use case for raw device mapping: Microsoft Clusters
4. Acronym: MPP – multipathing plug-in
5. Acronym: NMP – native multipathing plugin
6. Acronym: SATP – storage array type plugin
7. Configure IPv6 (need steps) – click host, Configuration, Networking, click Properties and select the "Enable IPv6 support on this host system"
8. Verify IPv6 has been enabled – Reboot system, click host/configuration/networking/properties and ensure checkbox is checked
9. Configure NetQueue – select host/configuration/advanced/Vmkernel, select checkbox for Vmkernel.boot.netqueueenabled
10. Configure SNMP Agent Polling – use vicfg-snmp.pl from the vSphere CLI
11. What is a PVLAN – Private VLAN
12. What are the types of PVLAN? Promiscous, Isolated, Community
13. Create a PVLAN – Click host/configuration/networking/distributed vSwitch/edit settings, click Private VLAN, click Enter Private VLAN ID and enter the appropriate primary private VLAN
14. Define NIC failover settings: Active – NICs are in use and traffic is being passed, Standby – NICs are waiting for a failure of an Active NIC, unused – NICs are unused and will not automatically be put into use if there is a NIC failure
15. What are the types of Network Failover Detection: Link Status – detects whether a physical NIC cable has been unplugged, Beacon Probing, sends and listens for ethernet frames to determine if traffic is reaching destination
16. Acronym: EVC – enhanced vmotion compatibility
17. What is a use case for EVC – Future proof a cluster for vMotion compatibility so you can add newer processors without issue
18. Acronym: DPM – Distributed Power Management
19. Create a DPM alarm – Click top level in vCenter, click Alarms/Definitions, right click and select New Alarm. Alarm type: Host, monitor for specific events. Click Triggers tab, select "Entered standby mode" as trigger
20. Identify three FT requirements: VM with 1 vCPU, host processors support FT, Correct license of vSphere
21. Configure FT logging – click host/configuration/networking, edit properties of vSwitch, add Vmkernel port group with appropriate IP info. Select "Fault Tolerance logging" checkbox.
22. What are the three admission control policies: host failures tolerated – reserves enough resources in the cluster to allow for the specified amount of host failures,
% of cluster resources – Reserves specified percentage of resources across hosts in the cluster
failover host – designates a host that acts solely as a failover target if a host fails.
23. Create a custom slot size config – Right click on cluster, select Edit settings, click on Vmware HA, select Advanced Options. Das.slotmeminmb to create a custom memory slot size
24. Identify the primary HA nodes (process for listing out which nodes are primary) use PowerCLI – Get-Cluster clustername | Get-HAPrimaryVMHost
