VMware Cloud Automation: Design and Deploy [V7.1] Quiz Questions and Answers

An architect is tasked with designing a backup strategy for vRealize Orchestrator as part of an upcoming production rollout of a Cloud Management Platform. Which are two valid backup design recommendations? (Choose two.)

Answer :
  • If vRealize Orchestrator is a standalone component, perform its backup before backing up vRealize Automation components in no particular order.
  • Perform file-level backup of the Orchestrator database only after a successful full virtual machine backup.

A network team has decided to utilize NSX to enable microsegmentation in its environment. Several networks have been created to support a three-tiered application network. An architect has been asked to incorporate this into the vRealize Automation environment and consume these networks on demand. What are two things the architect needs to take into consideration in this scenario? (Choose two.)

Answer :
  • external network profile for each application tier
  • routed network profile for each application tier

The tenant administrator for a company’s vRealize Automation deployment is asked to create a profile for a user that should be able to assemble the blueprints that define catalog items for consumers to request from the service catalog. Which tenant role should this user be granted?

Answer :
  • Application architect

Which two-factor authentication mechanism is supported by vRealize Automation?

Answer :
  • RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) authentication

The architect for a vRealize Automation project has a customer who wants the ability to do ‘Backup as a Service’ capabilities through day two operations. This is to allow end users to do on-demand backup and restores of their vRealize Automation workload machines without the need to open a ticket with Support. To which two infrastructure qualities does this technical requirement map? (Choose two.)

Answer :
  • Recoverability
  • Availability

A company is currently experiencing long infrastructure provisioning times, given that the process to ask, review, approve and deploy their services is manual with many people involved. It is considering vRealize Automation as a resolution, but it wants to better understand how much resources it is going to need. Which three should the architect consider when determining the appropriate vRealize Automation deployment size for this environment? (Choose three.)

Answer :
  • number of concurrent machine provisions
  • number of catalog items
  • number of blueprintsE. number of endpoints

A cloud architect is tasked with designing a Guest virtual machine (VM) request form for an organization’s new vRealize Automation (vRA) implementation. Its current PowerCLI VM request tool uses a PowerShell script that retrieves user IDs from Active Directory, which is the same identity source for vRealize Automation. The intent of the script is to retrieve and display John Smith when the actual value in Active Directory is JSmith01. What is the most secure way to utilize the same script for user’s display name in the vRA request form?

Answer :
  • Create a drop-down custom property with external values that returns a display name using the existing PowerShell script.

A cloud architect is trying to determine the operational impacts of adding another business group (DevOps) to the company’s existing vRealize Automation (vRA) deployment. Existing users have reported that response times for login into their vRA infrastructure has spiked recently and it is taking longer than usual. The Active Directory user base, after the addition of DevOps users, could increase to well over 100,000 users and 50 groups. What is the VMware-recommended design to address this scenario?

Answer :
  • Increase the vRA virtual appliance memory allocation on each machine as per sizing guidelines.

During requirements gathering for an organization’s private cloud on a single machine catalog, the following requirements were identified: 1. A user should be able to select a data center location which is mapped to a custom resource by the fabric administrator. 2. A Guest VM custom hostname format should be based on the first two letters of the data center location. 3. A generated VM custom hostname format should be displayed as a drop-down in the catalog request page using a vRealize Automation (vRA) custom property backed by external vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) action. >> Which design recommendation would best address these requirements?

Answer :
  • nable "Display location on request" in the blueprint’s VM machine type, map the built-in "Vrm.DataCenter.Location" custom property as an input to the required vRO action.

An IaaS Administrator has been tasked with organizing virtualization compute resources and cloud endpoints into fabric groups by type and intent. One or more fabric administrators will manage the resources in each fabric group. Which are three considerations to take into account when designing the fabric groups? (Choose three.)

Answer :
  • Fabric administrators are responsible for creating reservations on the compute resources in their fabric groups to allocate fabric to specific business groups.
  • Fabric groups will be created in a specific tenant, but their resources could be made available to users who belong to business groups in all tenants.
  • The IaaS administrator must grant the role of fabric administrator to the appropriate users.
