Your company has a private cloud that is managed by using a System Center 2012 infrastructure. An administrator installs a new tape drive on a server that has Data Protection Manager (DPM) installed. You discover that the tape drive is unavailable from the DPM Administrator console. You verify that the tape drive is installed correctly on the DPM server. You need to ensure that the tape drive is available from the DPM Administrator console. What should you do from the DPM Administrator console?
A. From the Agents view, click Install.
B. From the Disks tab, click Add.
C. From the Protection view, click Tape.
D. From the Libraries view, click Rescan.
To configure tape libraries
In DPM Administrator Console, on the navigation bar click Management, and then click the Libraries tab.
In the Actions pane, click Rescan.
The Rescan operation might take several minutes to complete. DPM will add any library jobs to the queue that began during the Rescan operation. If a library job is already in progress when the Rescan operation begins, the Rescan operation will fail.
Configuring Tape Libraries
Your company has a private cloud that is managed by using a System Center 2012 infrastructure. You install the servers shown in the following table.
The company’s compliance department identifies the following tasks that must be performed:
– Back up individual files from VM1.
– Back up the configuration settings of VM1.
– Restore the configuration settings of VM1.
– Restore individual files from VM1 to an alternate location.
The compliance department administrators recommend installing the DPM agent on Server1, and then performing a full backup. You need to identify which task is NOT met by the recommended solution. Which task should you identify?
A. Restore individual files from VM1 to an alternate location.
B. Restore the configuration settings of VM1.
C. Back up the configuration settings of VM1.
D. Back up individual files from VM1.
In the event of disaster recovery, System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 allows you to recover virtual machines as files to a network folder. You can then copy those files to an alternate Hyper-V host server.
However, to start a virtual machine on an alternate Hyper-V host server, you have to manually create and configure the virtual machine using the recovered files. DPM 2010 supports alternate location recovery (ALR), which allows you to recover a Hyper-V virtual machine to an alternate stand-alone Hyper-V host or to a cluster. The recovered virtual machine is already registered and configured on an alternate Hyper-V host server. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff634209.aspx In a virtualized environment the issue is whether to backup from inside the guest or from the host. The latter provides “bare metal restore” of an entire VM where something’s gone catastrophically wrong with a VM (or the host) but in general it doesn’t provide granular restore of files / folders. DPM 2010 added Item Level Restore (ILR), allowing you to restore individual files or folders within a VM even though it had only been backed up from the host. But this capability was only available when DPM 2010 ran on physical hardware, if the DPM server itself was in a VM this capability was not available. DPM 2012 fixes this glitch and can now do ILR even when the DPM server is a VM.
Your company has a datacenter in Los Angeles. The datacenter contains a private cloud that is managed by a System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) infrastructure. The infrastructure contains two management servers and 10 Hyper-V hosts. You configure VMM to use an update server and to synchronize the updates by using a windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server named WSUS1. You attempt to verify compliance with the Sample Baseline for Security Updates. You view the console as shown in the exhibit. (Click the Exhibit button.)
A. the update classifications of the update server
B. the Assignment Scope of the baseline
C. the default configuration provider
D. the Network settings of the All Hosts host group
In the VMM console, open the Fabric workspace.
On the Home tab, in the Add group, click Add Resources, and then click Update Server. The Add Windows Server Update Services Server dialog box opens. In Computer name, enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the WSUS server (for example, VMMServer01.contoso.com).
Specify which TCP/IP port that the WSUS website listens on for connections (for example, port 8530).
Enter credentials for connecting to the WSUS server. The account must have administrator rights on the WSUS server.
If necessary, select the Use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to communicate with the WSUS server and client’s check box.
The WSUS server will be added to VMM, followed by initial synchronization of the updates catalog. Depending on how many update classifications and products you chose when you installed the WSUS server, this operation can take a long time, depending on such factors as network traffic and the load on the WSUS server.
To find out the status of the operation, monitor the status of the Add Update Server and Synchronize Update Server jobs in the Jobs window or in the Jobs workspace.
After you enable update management in VMM, you should manage the WSUS server only through VMM, unless you are using a WSUS server in a Configuration Manager environment. To verify that the WSUS server was added to VMM successfully:
In the Fabric workspace, on the Fabric pane, expand Servers, and click Update Server. The results pane should display the WSUS server.
In the Library workspace, on the Library pane, expand Update Catalog and Baselines, and then click Update Catalog. The results pane should display the updates that were downloaded during WSUS synchronization.
Your company has a private cloud that is managed by using a System Center 2012 infrastructure. The network contains seven servers. The servers are configured as shown in the following table.
You need to recommend a solution to apply Windows updates to the virtualization hosts. The solution must meet the following requirements:
– Approve Windows updates from the VMM Administrator Console.
– Store information about Windows update installations in Configuration Manager reports.
What should you do first?
A. From the VMM Administrator Console, add Server6 as a host server, and then install the Configuration
Manager agent on Server1.
B. From the VMM Administrator Console, add Servers as an update server, and then install the Configuration
Manager agent on all of the visualization hosts.
C. On Server7, install Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), and then install the Configuration Manager
agent on Server1.
D. On Server7, install Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), and then install the Configuration Manager
agent on all of the visualization hosts.
The requirements need a WSUS server. Server 7 is the most appropriate server to install WSUS. A configuration manager agent is required to store information about Windows update installation in the Configuration Manager reports.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712312.aspx Step 1: Install and Configure a Software Update Point
The software update point is required on the central administration site and primary sites to enable software updates compliance assessment and to deploy software updates to clients. The software update point is optional on secondary sites. The software update point site system role must be created on a server that has WSUS installed. The software update point interacts with the WSUS services to configure software update settings and request synchronization of software updates metadata. When you have a Configuration Manager hierarchy, install and configure the software update point on the central administration site first, then on child primary sites, and then optionally on secondary sites. When you have a stand-alone primary site (no central administration site), install and configure the software update point on the primary site first, and then optionally on secondary sites. Some settings are only available when you configure the software update point on a central administration site, or stand-alone primary site, and there are different options that you must consider depending on where the software update point is installed.
Your company has a datacenter in Los Angeles that contains a private cloud. The private cloud is managed by using a System Center 2012 Operations Manager infrastructure. You plan to create a distributed application named Appl. You need to ensure that a folder for App1 is available from the Monitoring workspace in the Operations Manager console. What should you do?
A. Run the Protect-SCOMManagementPack cmdlet.
B. Save App1 in the Default Management Pack.
C. Run the Import-SCOMManagementPack cmdlet.
D. Save App1 as a new management pack.
The Default Management Pack file contains common elements such as views at the top level of the Monitoring workspace. This is an unsealed management pack file so that you can create views and folders at this level. It should not be used for any other purpose. For creating elements such as monitors and rules, create a new management pack file.
Selecting a Management Pack File
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh457560.aspx The Default management pack that ships with OpsMgr 2007 is used to store very specific information for the management group. It is a widely known best practice to NOT write any custom rules, monitors, groups, views, or overrides to this MP. Even customers who know this – and try to enforce this across their organizations…. will still inadvertently get junk in their default MP…. they will save things here by accident, or by granting access to advanced operators who aren’t educated on this topic.
The main problem with doing so…. is that we will build a dependency for this MP on any MP it references…. and therefore we wont ever be able to delete those management packs, until we clean this Default MP up, and start enforcing best practices. http://blogs.technet.com/b/kevinholman/archive/2008/11/11/cleaning-up-the-default-mp.aspx
Your company has a private cloud that is managed by using a System Center 2012 Operations Manager infrastructure. From Operations Manager, you create a group named Group1. You add multiple servers to Group1. You have an Active Directory group named Group2. You configure a dashboard for the users in Group2 to manage the client computers in Group1. You need to ensure that the users in Group2 can achieve the following tasks:
?View open critical alerts generated by Group1.
?Identify whether a monitor generated an alert.
Which object should you add to the dashboard?
A. a state widget
B. an alert widget
C. an event view
D. a state view
E. an alert view
Adding an alert widget to a dashboard
Step 1: In an empty dashboard cell, click on the “Click to add widget” link. This opens the New Dashboard and Widget Wizard.
Step 2: Now you are presented with a selection of the available widgets. Select Alert Widgets and then click Next.
Step 3: Once you give your widget a name and a description, you can choose a group or object for which to display alerts. The ability to select between “Groups” and “Groups and objects” allows you to change the scope of objects for which you will receive alerts. If you only want to target a certain object within a group or class, the
“Groups and objects” option allows you to do so, while the “Groups” option enables you to view alerts for all objects within the group you choose.
Step 4: Next you can specify the criteria for the alerts you will receive. You may choose the Severity, Priority, and Resolution State of the alerts. For example, I will receive alerts for warnings and information of all priority, and in either the new or closed state. Step 5: Lastly, select the columns to display for each alert. You can also decide how the alerts are sorted by default as well as how they are grouped.
One great addition to the alert widget that is not present in the alert view is the addition of the “Is Monitor Alert” column. This column allows you to see whether the alert was generated by monitor rather than a rule. In my example, I will group alerts by “Is Monitor Alert” and sort by “Last Modified”.
And there you have it. We’ve configured a dashboard with a powerful alert widget. It is a great way to quickly view the alerts you care about organized in the way you want. If you aren’t satisfied with your configuration or if your needs change, you can always click the button which gives you the option to reconfigure, personalize, or remove your widget. Reconfiguring a widget opens a wizard with your previously chosen widget configuration and allows you to change
all of options to keep up to date with your needs. Here you can change everything from the groups or objects targeted, to the name of the widget.
Personalizing a widget allows you to change the display options for that widget. Here you can change which columns are displayed and how your alerts are grouped and sorted. This allows you to view the alerts within a context that is most appropriate to you, but without having to worry about the primary configuration details.
You deploy System Center 2012 Operations Manager. You create two unsealed management packs named MP1 and MP2. You create an override for MP1. You create a group in MP2. You need to apply the override for MP1 to the group in MP2. What should you do before you apply the override?
A. Create a new class in MP2.
B. Seal MP1.
C. Seal MP2.
D. Create a new class in MP1.
When you create a group, you save it to an unsealed management pack. However, an element in an unsealed management pack, such as a group, cannot reference an element in a different unsealed management pack, such as an override or a view. If you are going to use a group to target an override or scope a view, you must either save the group to the same unsealed management pack as the override or view, or you must seal the management pack that contains the group. If you save the group to the same unsealed management pack as the override or view, you can only use that group for overrides and views that are also contained in that unsealed management pack. If you seal the management pack that contains the group, you can reference that group from other unsealed management packs. However, you cannot easily change any group settings in the sealed management pack or add new groups to the sealed management pack. http://www.code4ward.net/main/Blog/tabid/70/EntryId/130/Implications-when-using-groups-from- a-sealed-MPfor-overrides.aspx
