Answers

This section contains the solutions to the thought experiments and answers to the objective review questions in this chapter.

Objective 4.1: Thought experiment

  1. You must install the Operations Manager console on the VMM server.
  2. To link VMM and Operations Manager, you need the credentials of an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators user role, and the credentials of an account that is a member of the VMM Administrator user role.

Objective 4.1: Review

  1. Correct answer: B

    1. Incorrect: This activity allows you to extract data from an Operations Manager alert.
    2. Correct: This activity allows you to extract data from an Operations Manager alert.
    3. Incorrect: Orchestrator integration packs are collections of tasks that allow you to automate activities with different System Center products.
    4. Incorrect: Orchestrator integration packs are collections of tasks that allow you to automate activities with different System Center products.
  2. Correct answer: B

    1. Incorrect: Use this activity to create a VMM service using a VMM service template.
    2. Correct: You use this activity to create a new VM from an existing VM that is on a VMM managed virtualization host.
    3. Incorrect: Use this activity to create a VM from an existing virtual hard disk in the VMM library.
    4. Incorrect: This cmdlet allows you to create a VM from an existing VMM template.
  3. Correct answer: B

    1. Incorrect: You use this activity to recover a protected virtual machine.
    2. Correct: You use this activity to create a recovery point for a specific data source.
    3. Incorrect: You use this activity to determine which recovery points exist for a specific protected data source.
    4. Incorrect: You use this activity to put a data source into protection. Use the Get Data Source activity to determine the identity of eligible data sources.
  4. Correct answer: C

    1. Incorrect: You use this activity to deploy an application to a collection. In Configuration Manager, you use a Program rather than an Application to deploy scripts.
    2. Incorrect: This activity allows you to deploy an existing configuration baseline to an existing collection.
    3. Correct: You use this activity to deploy an existing program, including a script that you want to run, to a collection.
    4. Incorrect: This activity assigns an existing task sequence to a collection. While task sequences can run scripts, the “more correct” answer is to use a Program to deploy the script. Task sequences are most commonly used in Operating System Deployment (OSD) type activities.

Objective 4.2: Thought experiment

  1. Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server supports any operating system that can be managed through VMM. This means that it is possible to deploy VMs running supported versions of the Windows and Linux operating systems.
  2. Both Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL can be used to host the databases that store the data for web applications deployed in a Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server web cloud.

    3. Correct: You need to specify credentials for the VMM, Provider, Admin, and Usage web service application pool when installing Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server.
    4. Incorrect: You do not need to specify credentials for the Orchestrator web service application pool when installing Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server.
  2. Correct answers: B and C

    1. Incorrect: You cannot provision PostgreSQL database to users through Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server.
    2. Correct: You can install MySQL databases and provide them as a service to users through Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server.

  3. Correct Answers: A and D

    1. Correct: A management stamp represents a unit of virtualized platform infrastructure that includes a VMM deployment, one or more virtualization hosts, the VMs that are managed by VMM, and the unique service accounts and user roles that are individual to that stamp.
    2. Incorrect: While a Service Provider Foundation management stamp may utilize Orchestrator and Service Provider Foundation is installed from the Orchestrator installation media, there is no direct relationship between a management stamp and Orchestrator.
    3. Incorrect. A single Operations Manager management group can monitor multiple Service Provider Foundation management stamps.
    4. Correct: A management stamp represents a unit of virtualized platform infrastructure that includes a VMM deployment, one or more virtualization hosts, the VMs that are managed by VMM, and the unique service accounts and user roles that are indi
