An administrator needs to know the estimated time remaining on a virtual machine that is hosting a critical accounting application given current assigned resources such as memory, CPU, and disk. When an administrator selects the virtual machine in the vCenter Operations Manager console, which major badge should the administrator investigate to determine this information? A vSphere administrator needs to add redundancy to an ESXi 5.x management network on a vSphere Standard Switch. Which method should the administrator use to create redundant management networks? Immediately after installing ESXi, an administrator observes that the Configure Lockdown Mode option is grayed out in the (Direct Console User Interface DCUI). What is the most likely explanation? What is the maximum number of VMkernel swap files that an ESXi 5.x host can have on a single VMFS volume? A vSphere administrator needs a way of sending noncritical ESXi events to a remote server. Due to budget constraints, no additional costs should be incurred. Which tool will best meet this requirement? A vSphere administrator needs to reconfigure the Distributed Power Management (DPM) threshold to be more aggressive. Where should the administrator edit the settings of DPM in the vSphere Web Client? A customer needs to select an appropriate Path Selection Policy (PSP) for their storage array. There is no requirement for a preferred path. The policy should not select a new path unless the current one fails. Which PSP meets the requirement? An administrator is building a new vSphere Standard Switch with two active uplinks. The physical switch ports for these uplinks are placed in an etherchannel. Which load balancing policy should the administrator use to support the etherchannel configuration? A network auditing team has observed activity from a virtual machine that may be an organization policy security breach. The vSphere administrator needs to stop network traffic from the virtual machine. Which step should the administrator take? A vSphere administrator needs to migrate a virtual machine to another datastore and host without disrupting virtual machine users. Which technique should the vSphere administrator use? When a vSphere administrator attempts to remediate a host with Update Manager, the host is unable to enter maintenance mode. Which condition is likely preventing the host from entering maintenance mode? A security team is validating policy settings in a vSphere environment. By default, which security policy is set to reject on a vSphere Standard Switch? An administrator needs to migrate a company's physical servers to virtual servers and deploy into the ESXi 5.x cluster. During the process of converting to a virtual machine, the administrator needs to reduce the size of the disks. Which method should the administrator use to meet this requirement? A storage array containing a VMFS datastore must be taken offline for maintenance. What can be done to avoid virtual machine downtime on VMs running in this datastore? The vSphere administrator needs to migrate a virtual machine from one host to another. The virtual machine .vswp file resides in local storage. Which two techniques can the administrator use to migrate the virtual machine? (Choose two.) A vSphere Administrator has a multi-tier application deployed in a vApp. The administrator needs to rapidly deploy copies of the multi-tier application to various departmental infrastructures throughout the company. Which step should the administrator take using the vSphere Web Client to allow this? An administrator is using vSphere Replication to replicate a number of virtual machines to a recovery site. The administrator plans on enabling Storage DRS on the production site, which is running vSphere 5.5. What changes must be made in order to support this configuration? Which information does the CPU Ready counter provide to a vSphere administrator?
