Question No : 12
An administrator is using esxtop to troubleshoot a storage performance issue.
Which parameter should the administrator check to monitor any storage-related vSphere
Question No : 13
An administrator needs to unmount a datastore that is also used for HA storage heartbeats.
What is the least disruptive method for an administrator to perform this activity on a slave
A. On the Datastore Heartbeating tab, unmount the datastore normally and confirm a new datastore has been selected.
B. On the Datastore Heartbeating tab, specify an alternate datastore, then unmount the datastore normally.
C. Disable HA datastore heartbeats, then unmount the datastore.
D. Reduce the number of heartbeat datastores, then remove the datastore from the heartbeat list.
Question No : 14
An administrator needs to install vSphere Update Manager using an external SQL Server
2008 R2 database. The administrator has created the database successfully, but cannot
