A virtual machine is unable to communicate with another virtual machine. Both virtual machines are connected to the Production port group on the same virtual switch and are running on the same host. Which configuration is causing the inability of the virtual machines to communicate?
A. LLDP was enabled instead of CDP for the vSphere Distributed Switch.
B. Promiscuous Mode has been set to Allow on the Production port group.
C. The Production port group is configured to use a secondary PVLAN.
D. The speed and duplex settings for the virtual machine vmnics do not match.
Which two statements are true regarding a new vSphere deployment that is using software FCoE boot from SAN? (Choose two.)

Which feature requires an administrator to configure an RDM with Virtual Compatibility Mode?
B. Virtual Machine Snapshots
C. High Availability
D. N-port ID Virtualization
A virtual machine has the following configuration:
– Thin provisioned virtual disks
– The VMFS datastore on which it resides is on a thin provisioned LUN.
– The storage array is VAAI-enabled.
What is the behavior of the virtual machine when it encounters an out-of-space condition?
A. It is suspended.
B. It is gracefully shut down.
C. It is powered off.
D. It is converted to space-efficient sparse.
What should an administrator do to configure multi-pathing using software iSCSI?
A. Bind the VMkernel ports to the software iSCSI initiator
B. Configure Zoning between the hosts and SAN switches
C. Configure NIC teaming on the associated uplinks

A vSphere administrator observes a problem with the Virtual SAN Cluster Setting as shown:
Which action should the administrator take on the vmkernel portgroup on all hosts used by Virtual SAN cluster to resolve this problem?
A. Select the Virtual SAN traffic option
B. Increase the MTU value
C. Change the DNS server address
D. Increase the Port Speed
Which statement is true about the hardware configuration for ESXi hosts participating in a virtual SAN?

D. Each host must have a RAID Controller.
An administrator has configured a vSphere 5.5 test environment to evaluate the Virtual SAN feature using Automatic Mode Disk Groups. The administrator needs to disable the Virtual SAN cluster while preserving the virtual machines running on that cluster. The administrator has already installed a vSphere 5.5 Client on a Windows 7 desktop and also has access to the vSphere 5.5 Web Client. What should the administrator do to disable the Virtual SAN?

A vSphere administrator has created a Virtual SAN Cluster with Automatic Mode Disk Groups. The cluster includes three ESXi hosts contributing one SSD and six SAS disks each. The administrator has four new ESXi hosts that boot from a fiber channel array and have no local disks attached.
