The customer asked for a solution that will enable them to better track who accesses, or attempts to access, certain confidential files. Which of the following recommendations is most appropriate? Which of the following describes an IBM i solution that is designed to prevent long-running or excessive query jobs from impacting the overall performance of a system? A company has three sales regions, each with its own POWER6 server.

What upgrade options does a PQWER6 570 with some inactive cores have? A prospective customer with a very limited budget has stated that they are focused only on price. Before they evaluate application software, they have asked how a Power 720 with IBM i can cost twice as much as a similarly sized x86 server with Linux. Which of the following responses addresses the customer concern? A customer has 3 IBM 7.1 partitions running on a POWER7 740. One partition has a dedicated 4Gb Fibre Channel adapter to connect to the tape library, the other two partitions have a shared 4Gb Fibre Channel adapter to connect to the same tape library. All partitions are connected to a VIO Server to use external storage. The overhead of needing to switch the shared 4 Gb Fibre Channel adapter is a burden and the customer wants a solution for this. Which of the following is needed? A company replaced an HP-UX Oracle system with a new Power 740 running IBM I. The company DBA, who managed data placement on the HP-UX system, recently resigned. Which of the following should be reviewed with the customer? A POWER6 customer with an LTO-3 tape drive needs to encrypt their tape backups. They want to avoid the purchase of a different tape device. Which of the following solutions supports the requirement for encryption without needing to acquire a different tape technology? What feature of PowerVM Enterprise Edition first became available to IBM i customers at 7.1? A CEO is evaluating the purchase of a Power 740 server to replace several x86 servers. Before approving the purchase, the CEO would like to know how the new server will reduce operating expenses. Which statement addresses the CEO concern? A Power 770 customer wants to purchase second Power 770 that would only be used in a disaster recovery (DR) situation. They have stated that the cost of purchasing the same number of IBM i licenses for an inactive DR system is too expensive. Which solution supports the DR requirement and addresses the concern about IBM licensing costs? A customer has multiple single-image systems running various versions of IBM i as noted below, and wants to consolidate their workloads to partitioned systems. - V5R3 - V5R4 - IBM i 6.1 - IBM i 7.1 Existing application limitations and business requirements prevent them from moving off older releases of the IBM i. Based only on the versions of IBM i and assuming no operating system upgrades are possible, what is the minimum quantity and most recent generation of Power Systems servers required to consolidate these workloads?

Which of the following was added in IBM i 7.1 to reduce disk protection recovery time? A customer would like to share a tape library among multiple partitions to run backups on a nightly basis, but doesn't have the budget for a fibre switch or dedicated fibre adapters. They need to be able to have their single fibre adapter available to each partition on a scheduled basis. What product or feature can help accommodate this requirement? Under which condition is proposing a Solution Edition valid? A customer is considering a Power 770 with two IBM i 7.1 partitions. The server will be natively attached to the same DS8000 System Storage already in use by other IBM i sewers in their enterprise.
