Topic: Implement storage solutions
Your network includes a server that is running the Windows Server 2016 operating system.
The disk configuration is shown in the following table:
Windows Server 2016 is installed in the path C:\Windows.
You must identify the drives on which you can activate data deduplication.
On which two drives can you activate data deduplication?
Answer: E:, G:
Volumes that are eligible for deduplication must meet the following requirements:
- They must not be system volumes or startup volumes. Deduplication is not supported on operating system volumes.
- They can be partitioned as Master Boot Record (MBR) or GUID partition table (GPT) and must be formatted with the NTFS file system
- They can be in storage shares, such as storage with a Fibre Channel or SAS array or an iSCSI SAN, if Windows failover clustering is fully supported.
- They must not be dependent on the Microsoft Resilient File System (ReFS)
- They must not be larger than 64 TB
- They must be made available to the operating system as non-replaceable drives. Remotely mapped drives are not supported.
Your network contains a server named Server1. Server1 has the Windows Server 2016 operating system installed.
You are installing three additional hard drives in Server1. You plan to use the new hard drives to store data.
You must create a volume on which data can be stored. Your solution must prevent data loss in the event that one of the three hard drives fails.
What three steps do you perform in order?
- Create a storagepool
- Create a virtual harddisk
- Create a volume
Your network contains a server named Server1. The Windows Server 2016 operating system is installed on Server1.
You include Server1 in a cluster.
You must make sure that you can use disk 1 to create a Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) storage pool.
What is your first step?
Answer: Delete Partition E:
Your network contains four Hyper-V hosts named Server1, Server2, Server3, and Server4. The Windows Server 2016 operating system is installed on all four servers.
You must create high-availability storage locations that use storage that is directly connected to the Hyper-V hosts.
Which cmdlet are you using?
Your network includes a server that is running the Windows Server 2016 operating system. You run the following cmdlets on the server:
Which statements are correct?
- DC01.vhdx is processed by datadeduplication
- Readne.txt is processed by datadeduplication
- Software.iso is processed by datadeduplication
The configuration shown corresponds to the default configuration. The MinimumFileAgeDays parameter specifies that files that have not been accessed since the specified number of days are optimized. Files smaller than 32 KB are not included in the data deduplication process.
The NoCompressionFileType parameter contains the following file types:
Your network includes an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain named certbase.de. The domain contains two Windows Server 2016 servers with the same hardware configuration.
You want to synchronize Volume F: asynchronously from Server1 to Server2.
How do you do it?
Answer: Run the New-SRPartnership cmdlet and specify the ReplicationMode parameter.
The ReplicationMode parameter of the New-SRPartnership cmdlet specifies the synchronization mode. In Synchronous mode, the source server waits to write the data until the data is transferred to the target server and written there. In Asynchronous mode, the source server writes the data without waiting for the target server.
Your network contains a server on which the Windows Server 2016 operating system is installed. A storage pool named Pool1 is configured on the server.
Pool1 consists of five physical media called Disk1, Disk2, Disk3, Disk4, and Disk5. A virtual disk named vDisk1 is created in Pool1. The virtual disk uses the storage arrangement Parity.
You want to remove Disk3 from Pool1.
Which two steps should you perform?
Set-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName Disk3 -Usage Retired
Remove-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName Disk3
Your network includes an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain called cybercop-training.ch. The function level of the overall structure and the function level of the domain are defined with Windows Server 2008 R2.
The Windows Server 2016 Standard operating system is installed on all servers in the domain. The domain contains 300 client computers running either Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
The domain contains six servers. The configuration of the servers is shown in the following table:
|Server2||Fileserver||config of Fileserverclustering and storage spaces direct|
|Server3||Fileserver||config of Fileserverclustering and storage spaces direct|
|Server4||Hyper-V Host||Provide shielded VMs|
|Server6||Memberserver||Provide Active Directory Federation Services|
|VM1||VM on Server5||none|
|VM2||VM on Server5||none|
|VM3||VM on Server5||none|
You plan to create a new volume on Server4. You want to create large fixed-size VHDX files on the volume.
You need to make sure that the VHDX files can be created in the shortest possible time.
Which file system do you use for the new volume?
Your network includes four Windows Server 2016 computers called Server1, Server2, Server3, and Server4. Each server has a 4-TB SATA hard disk.
You install an additional 4-TB SATA hard disk in each server.
You must create a new storage pool that uses Storage Spaces Direct (S2D). The storage pool should contain all new hard disks.
What command do you run before you enable direct storage?
New-Cluster -Name Cluster1 -Node Server1, Server2, Server3, Server4 -NoStorage
You are planning to deploy a new Human Resources application on a server called HRServer5. HRServer5 has a FAT32 formatted data volume.
The management determines the following guidelines for the IT department:
- A failover cluster is to be provided on two new virtual machines (VMs)
- All application databases are to be protected by the Encrypted File System (EFS)
- Each Windows container should use a dedicated IP address assigned by a DHCP server
- Create a report that lists the processor time used by all processes on a server named Server1. The report is intended to collect data over a period of five hours.
- All communication between the internal network and the external network, including WSUS communication, must be encrypted.
- An automatic balancing of the virtual machines on the Hyper-V cluster should take place if the processor load of a host exceeds 70 percent.
What step do you take to prepare the HRServer5 data volume for the deployment of the new application’s database to Human Resources?
Answer: Format the datavolume with NTFS
* Fat32 doesn’t support EFS
You plan to deploy three servers named Server1, Server2, and Server3. You want all three servers to run the Windows Server 2016 operating system.
The servers have the following disk configuration:
- Server1 contains a drive with the drive letter C: and 2 TB of disk space
- Server2 contains two disks. Drive C: has a capacity of 2 TB and Drive D: has a capacity of 1 TB. Drive D: must support compression based on the file system
- Server3 contains two disks. Drive C: has a capacity of 2 TB and drive D: has a capacity of 1 TB. Drive D: must support quotas based on the file system
