Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 is a Type I virtulization architecture. What is the fundamental difference between Hyper-V and older, Type II virtualization architectures?
Hyper-V creates environments called partitions, each with its own operating system installed.
Its hypervisor designates the first partition as the parent partition and all subsequent partitions as child partitions.
Its hypervisor is an abstraction layer and interacts directly with computer hardware, rather than as a host OS application.
Computer subsystems such as Plug and Play and power management are managed by Hyper-V's parent partition.
Regarding virtual machines, what is Smart Paging used for?
When a VM has to restart and not enough memory is available to allocate its startup RAM value
When a VM has to restart and not enough memory is available to allocate its minimum RAM value
When a VM is overburdened with client traffic and not enough memory is available to allocate its maximum RAM value
When a VM is overburdened with client traffic and just enough memory is available to allocate is maximum RAM value
What is the least expensive way an administrator can experiment with Hyper-V and virtualization?
Purchase the Standard edition of Windows Server 2012, which includes the Hyper-V role.
Purchase the Essentials edition of Windows Server 2012, which includes the Hyper-V role.
Purchase the Datacenter edition of Windows Server 2012, which includes the Hyper-V role.

When the Hyper-V role is added to a Windows Server 2012 server, the hypervisor creates the individual environments, each of which has its own operating system installed and accesses the computer's hardware via the hypervisor. What are those individual environments called?
Using the Standard edition of Windows Server 2012, I need to create 5 virtual machines. On how many can I install Windows Server 2012?
What roles does Microsoft recommend can share the same server as the Hyper-V role?
Any other role
No other role
File and print roles
In some cases, certain Hyper-V guest operating system features do not function properly using the OS's own device drivers. What Hyper-V software package can help remedy compatibility issues?
guest integration services
What is the primary graphical tool for creating and managing virtual machines?
Add Roles and Features wizard
The amount of memory that you want to allocate the VM when it starts is called __________.
What is Resource Metering?
Resource metering documents virtual machine usage regarding a variety of criteria
Resource metering documents resource usage of host systems that run virtual machines
Resource metering documents user traffic on virtual machines
Resource metering enables you to redistribute virtual machine resources
After installing the Hyper-V role, what is the startup procedure for Windows Server 2012?
The newly installed hypervisor starts first, then loads the operating system as the primary or parent partition
The actual startup procedure is not altered
The newly installed hypervisor starts alongside of the operating system simultaneously
The newly installed hypervisor starts second, after the operating system loads as a partition
You are using differencing disks for multiple virtual machines (VMs) to preserve the parent image from changes. Now you want to combine the two images together. What PowerShell cmdlet allows you to do this?
The smallest amount of memory the VM can use at any time is called _________.
When creating a snapshot file using Hyper-V Manager, what is the file format and where is it stored?
The file has an AVHD extension, stored in the same folder as the virtual hard disk file.
The file has an AVHDX extension, stored in teh same folder as the virtual hard disk file.
The file has an AVHD or AVHDX extension, stored in teh same folder as the virtual hard disk file.
The file has an AVHD or AVHDX extension, stored at the root of the local drive
What is the primary purpose of the software package offered by Hyper-V called Guest Integration Services?
Guest Integration Services improves communications between the parent partition and child partitions.
Guest Integration Services resolves compatibility issues of certain guest operating systems experiencing non-functioning features
Guest Integration Services improves data exchange between the parent partition and child partitions.
Guest Integration Services improves time synchronization between the parent partition and child partitions.
Regarding the benefits of a SAN, what happens during serverless backup?
The server schedules the backup, but has no involvement at the beginning, during, or end
The server initiates the backup, but the server is not involved during the backup
The server acts as a slave to the backup device
Without a server, there is no backup
What does a differencing disk offer administrators?
An opportunity to experiment with no changes committed to the differencing disk
A better security for the data on the differencing disk
A faster load time than a full VM
An opportunity to experiment with no changes committed to the parent image
Do VMs ever directly access a physical hard disk?
No, VMs access only virtual hard disks, areas of space on the physical hard disk.
Yes, VMs access a physical hard disk by way of a "pass-through disk," a special virtual disk that directly accesses the physical disk if it is made exclusively available to the VM
No, VMs access physical hardware only through the hypervisor
Yes, virtual hard disks associate directly to the physical hard disks.
Virtual SANs allow you to __________.
eliminate the physical disks
have virtual hard disks communicate with physical hard disks
make distant storage accessible to VMs
utilize the Fibre Channel adapters
Can you modify an existing virtual hard disk (VHD) file
No, once created, a VHD file is fixed
Yes, but you can modify it only through Windows PowerShell
No, but you change it into a VHDX file
Yes, you can even modify it without mounting it to a VM
How do you give a VM exclusive access to a physical hard disk?
By creating a pass-through disk for the VM
Taking the disk offline in the parent OS, and then selecting the physical disk in the VM
By granting the physical disk to the VM through the parent OS
A VM cannot have exclusive access to physical disks, only virtual disks
The following PowerShell cmdlets are all valid for executing functions related to VHDs. Which cmdlet is used for compacting dynamic or differencing disks?
