MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-652): Securing Hosts and Virtual Machines

Suggested Practices

To help you successfully master the exam objectives presented in this chapter, complete the following tasks.

Hyper-V Security

  • Practice 1 Take the time to work with the various virtual network adapters available in Hyper-V. Connect different virtual machines to each adapter type in an effort to isolate their network traffic. This will be useful practice for the exam.

  • Practice 2 Take the time to create new folders for the storage of virtual machine files. Take a close look at the access control lists that must be enabled to support moving these storage locations from their defaults. One good way to do this is to examine the security properties of the default locations.

Hyper-V Role Delegation

  • Practice 1 Play with the various roles you can generate for Hyper-V role delegation with Authorization Manager. Rely on the InitialStore.xml file to begin this practice and save your changes. Copy the updated stores to other servers to load them and then log on with different accounts to test the access you have granted.

  • Practice 2 Play with the various roles you can generate for SCVMM role delegation with the Administrator Console. Then log on with different accounts to test the access you have granted.
