Answers

This section contains the answers to the lesson review questions in this chapter.

Lesson 1

  1. Correct answers: B, C, and D

    1. Incorrect. You cannot use a file share hosted on a computer running Windows Server 2008 R2 to host Hyper-V virtual machines.
    2. Correct. You can use storage migration to move a virtual machine from a Hyper-V server’s C: volume to an iSCSI-connected virtual disk.
    3. Correct. You can use storage migration to move a virtual machine from a Hyper-V server’s C: volume to a USB 3.0–connected SSD disk.
    4. Correct. You can use storage migration to move a virtual machine from a Hyper-V server’s C: volume to a file share hosted on a computer running Windows Server 2012 R2.
  2. Correct answers: A and D

    1. Correct. You must export the SYD-DB-VM virtual machine as the first step in creating a duplicate.
    2. Incorrect. The Import/Register option uses the original virtual machine ID. You need to have a new virtual machine ID generated to have the original and the duplicate present on the same server.
    3. Incorrect. The Import/Restore option uses the original virtual machine ID. You need to have a new virtual machine ID generated to have the original and the duplicate present on the same server.
    4. Correct. The Import/Restore option uses the original virtual machine ID. You need to have a new virtual machine ID generated to have the original and the duplicate present on the same server.
  3. Correct answer: B and D

    1. Incorrect. You do not have to configure delegation for the dcom service to support Hyper-V live migration.
    2. Correct. You need to configure delegation for the Cifs service if you want to support moving virtual machine storage using Hyper-V live migration.
    3. Incorrect. You do not have to configure delegation for the Hyper-V Replica Service to support Hyper-V live migration.
    4. Correct. You need to configure delegation for the Microsoft Virtual System Migration Service to support the movement of virtual machines in live migration.
  4. Correct answer: A and C

    1. Correct. You can use a Cluster Shared Volume file share to host virtual machine files for virtual machines hosted on a Hyper-V failover cluster.
    2. Incorrect. Hyper-V does not support hosting virtual machines on SMB 2.0 file shares.
    3. Correct. You can use an SMB 3.0 file share to host virtual machine files for virtual machines hosted on a Hyper-V failover cluster.
    4. Incorrect. Hyper-V does not support hosting virtual machines on DFS shares.

Lesson 2

  1. Correct answer: C

    1. Incorrect. You should shut down the virtual machine before performing a planned failover of a virtual machine configured for Hyper-V Replica.
    2. Incorrect. You should shut down the virtual machine before performing a planned failover of a virtual machine configured for Hyper-V Replica.
    3. Correct. You should shut down the virtual machine before performing a planned failover of a virtual machine configured for Hyper-V Replica.
    4. Incorrect. You should shut down the virtual machine before performing a planned failover of a virtual machine configured for Hyper-V Replica.
  2. Correct answers: B and C

    1. Incorrect. You should place an equal number of nodes in the first and second sites when configuring a cluster that will retain quorum when a site is lost.
    2. Correct. You should place a file share witness in a third site and equal numbers of nodes in the first and second sites when configuring a cluster that will retain quorum in the event of site failure.
    3. Correct. You should place a file share witness in a third site and equal numbers of nodes in the first and second sites when configuring a cluster that will retain quorum in the event of site failure.
    4. Incorrect. You should place a file share witness in the third site when configuring a cluster that will retain quorum when a site is lost.
  3. Correct answer: C

    1. Incorrect. This rule allows remote failover cluster management.
    2. Incorrect. This rule allows remote Hyper-V management.
    3. Correct. When you choose Kerberos authentication for Hyper-V Replica, you need to enable the Hyper-V Replica HTTP predefined firewall rule to allow authentication and replica traffic.
    4. Incorrect. When you choose Kerberos authentication for Hyper-V Replica, you need to enable the Hyper-V Replica HTTP predefined firewall rule to allow authentication and replica traffic.
  4. Correct answer: A

    1. Correct. When you choose certificate-based authentication for Hyper-V Replica, you need to enable the Hyper-V Replica HTTPS predefined firewall rule to allow authentication and replica traffic.
    2. Incorrect. This rule allows remote Hyper-V management.
    3. Incorrect. This rule allows remote failover cluster management.
    4. Incorrect. You enable this rule when you are using Hyper-V Replica with Kerberos-based authentication, not certificate-based authentication.
