How does the CIMC protect the network from intrusions for the Cisco UCS C-Series servers?
It uses IP blocking.
Which of these is a characteristic of the Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount server family?
The series offers a cost-effective entry point to the rack-mount server profile and a migration to a full Cisco Unified Computing System solution.
How is Cisco able to offer networking solutions that operate within the distributed hypervisor layer featuring Cisco VN-Link?
using the virtual interface card to provide 10-GB Ethernet and FCoE
Which two situations have impacted virtualization in server technology? (Choose two.)
increased number of virtualized servers to manage
reduced number of physical servers needed
What are two reasons that a firmware upgrade might not be immediately activated on a server? (Choose two.)

What are two benefits of the Cisco extended memory technology? (Choose two.)
It can use 4-GB DIMMs for up to 192 GB for cost savings.
It requires 8-GB DIMMs to expand memory to up to 384 GB.
What are two features of the Cisco UCS C-Series servers that are not available in the Cisco UCS B-Series? (Choose two.)
rack-mount form factor for customers who prefer that option
higher internal storage with flexibility for growth
How does the Cisco extended memory technology offer the most memory in a 2 RU server?
Four physically distinct DIMMs are mapped to a single logical DIMM.
What command is used to finalize a firmware upgrade via the CLI?
How do you activate new firmware on the Cisco UCS C-Series server?
It is activated by switching the server to the new firmware after a system reboot.
How can you verify that the Cisco UCS C-Series server is in standby power mode?
The Power Status LED is amber.
In which two ways can you configure the RAID controller for the Cisco UCS C200 and C210 servers? (Choose two.)
Interact with the firmware installed on the controller during the server boot time using a BIOS configuration utility.
Use Intel's RAID Controller Drivers after the operating system is installed.
What is a feature of the Cisco extended memory technology?
It increases performance and capacity for demanding virtualization and large-data-set workloads.
