A customer is configuring the dynamic vNIC connection policy in a Cisco UCS domain. Why is the dynamic vNIC policy required?
It is required for Cisco UCS instances that include servers with VIC adapters on which you have installed VMs and configured dynamic vNICs.
A customer is configuring VSANs in a Cisco UCS domain. After configuring the VSANs 3840, 3841, and 3842 in FC end-host mode, the customer sees that these VSANs are not operational and that Cisco UCS Manager is raising faults. What is the cause of this problem?
VSANs 3840 to 4079 cannot be used in Fibre Channel end-host mode in a Cisco UCS domain.
RBAC is a method of restricting access for a particular user on which two of these? (Choose two.)
A customer is configuring SAN pin groups in a Cisco UCS domain. The customer notices that pinning is not working and traffic from the vHBA is not passing over the Fibre Channel uplink port. Which of these must be done for pinning to work correctly?
Include the SAN pin group in a vHBA policy and then include the vHBA policy in the service profile that is assigned to that server.
Which CLI command will indicate whether a Cisco UCS C-Series rack-mount server has any failed DIMMs?

A Cisco UCS chassis has two ports on I/O Module 1 connected to Fabric Interconnect A, and two ports on I/O Module 2 connected to Fabric Interconnect B. The I/O modules are connected to ports 1 and 2 on their respective fabric interconnects, and end host mode is configured. After a link failure occurs on port 1 of I/O Module 1, what happens to the traffic that was pinned to that link?
The traffic is repinned to the remaining link between I/O Module 1 and Fabric Interconnect A.
Looking at the Equipment > Chassis > Servers > Server X view from the Cisco UCS Manager GUI, which tab would you select to identify the fabric interconnect uplink associated with a given virtual circuit?
When a service profile is disassociated from a server, what happens to the identity and connectivity information for the server?
It is reset to factory defaults.
A customer is configuring an upstream disjoint Layer 2 network in a Cisco UCS domain. So far they have configured the following: Fabric Interconnects are in switching mode. There is symmetrical configuration for high availability. There are no overlapping VLANs. Each vNIC is communicating with one disjoint Layer 2 network. After validating the above, the customer is still having issues with network connectivity. What is the issue?
The fabric interconnect must be in end-host mode for a disjoint Layer 2 network.
A customer is configuring a network control policy in a Cisco UCS domain. The network control policy configures the network control settings for the Cisco UCS domain, including which three of these? (Choose three.)
how the VIF behaves if no uplink port is available in end-host mode

The customer has entered the following commands via CLI: UCS-A# scope eth-traffic-mon UCS-A /eth-traffic-mon # scope fabric a UCS-A /eth-traffic-mon/fabric # create eth-mon-session EthMonitor33 UCS-A /eth-traffic-mon/fabric/eth-mon-session* # create dest-interface 2 12 UCS-A /eth-traffic-mon/fabric/eth-mon-session/dest-interface* # set speed 20gbps UCS-A /eth-traffic-mon/fabric/eth-mon-session/dest-interface* # commit-buffer UCS-A /eth-traffic-mon/fabric/eth-mon-session/dest-interface # Which outcome will this command sequence produce?
It will create an Ethernet traffic monitoring session to copy and forward traffic to the destination port at slot 2, port 12, will set the admin speed to 20 Gb/s, and will commit the transaction.
Which statement is true about system event logs?
By default, they require manual clearing.
During the installation of Windows 2008 64-bit operating system on a Cisco UCS server, the RAID controller is not found. What is the cause of the problem?
The LSI drivers are not bundled and need to be loaded by clicking the Load Driver option to point to the correct drivers.

A customer calls in a trouble ticket and explains that after a power failure, the UPS was discovered to be defective and the Cisco UCS C210 M2 server running Windows 2008 R2 went down without proper shutdown. After restarting the server, you discover the RAID 5 array rebuilding parity. Which write-cache settings on the LSI MegaRAID 9260-4i controller explain this symptom?
You are attempting to install Microsoft Server 2008 R2 on a Fibre Channel LUN, but the installer does not see the LUN. You have used F6 to load the appropriate SCSI driver. What should your first troubleshooting step be?
Check the configuration of the vHBA in the service profile.
A customer is trying to boot an operating system installed on a Cisco UCS B-Series blade server after a RAID1 cluster migration. The RAID LUN remains in inactive state during and after the service profile association and the server does not boot. What is the cause of this problem?
The local disk configuration policy in the service profile on the server is configured with Any Configuration mode rather than RAID1.
A customer is configuring LAN pin groups in a Cisco UCS domain. The customer has two fabric interconnects and would like to associate the pin group with only one interconnect. Which statement about this configuration is true?
In a system with two fabric interconnects, you can associate the pin group with only one fabric interconnect or with both fabric interconnect. This is a supported configuration.
