Topic: Implementing High Availability
Your network contains a Windows Server 2016 failover cluster called Cluster1. The cluster includes four nodes named Server1, Server2, Server3, and Server4.
Cluster1 hosts 40 virtual machines (VMs) evenly distributed among the four nodes.
Server1 and Server2 are located in a data center in Berlin. Server3 and Server4 are located in a data center in Stuttgart.
You must ensure that when a cluster node is stopped, the virtual machines always try to fail over to another node within the same data center before failing over to a node in the other data center.
What are your two steps?
Answer: Run the New-ClusterFaultDomain cmdlet. / Run the Set-ClusterFaultDomain cmdlet.
Your network contains a Windows Server 2016 failover cluster called Cluster1. The cluster includes three nodes named Server1, Server2, and Server3.
Each node hosts multiple virtual machines (VMs). If one of the cluster nodes fails, the affected virtual machines fail over to another node.
You must ensure that if the cluster service fails on one of the nodes, a failover for the node’s virtual machines is performed immediately.
What setting do you configure?
Your network includes an Active Directory domain services (AD DS) domain called cybercop-training.ch. The domain contains two Windows Server 2016 servers named Server1 and Server2.
Each of the two servers has one hard disk for the operating system and four hard disks for data. All hard disks are locally connected SATA data carriers. All hard disks are configured as basic data carriers and initialized with the partition style MBR. A single NTFS volume is created on each disk.
You plan to implement Storage Spaces Direct (S2D). You want to use all data disks for Storage Spaces Direct.
You must prepare the data disks for the scheduled Storage Spaces Direct deployment.
What do you do?
Answer: Delete the existing volumes on the data disks.
You work as a network administrator for the company CertBase. You implement the Network Load Balancing (NLB) feature to configure three web servers named Server1, Server2, and Server3 for a network load balancing cluster.
The three web servers are configured with the following IP addresses:
The IP address of the NLB cluster is 192.168.2.120.
Which IP address(es) are configured on each server?
Server1: 192.168.2.101, 192.168.2.120
Server2: 192.168.2.102, 192.168.2.120
Server3: 192.168.2.103, 192.168.2.120
You provide two new servers with the operating system Windows Server 2016. Then install the failover clustering feature on both servers.
You must create a cluster in a workgroup.
What do you do?
Create matching user accounts with administrative privileges on both servers. Assign the same primary DNS suffix to both servers. Run the New-Cluster cmdlet and specify DNS for the AdministrativeAccessPoint parameter.
Your network includes a Windows Server 2016 computer named Server1. Server1 is configured as a Hyper-V host and hosts a virtual machine (VM) called VM1.
You must create 10 copies of VM1 on Server1. You want to make the copies in the shortest possible time.
What cmdlets do you use?
Export-VM und anschließend Import-VM
Your network includes a Windows Server 2016 failover cluster. The cluster contains two nodes called Server1 and Server2.
You must apply updates to Server1.
What two cmdlets do you run before you install the updates?
Move-ClusterGroup -Node Server2 /
Your network includes a Windows Server 2016 failover cluster. The cluster contains four nodes named Server1, Server2, Server3, and Server4.
The failover cluster is configured to compensate for virtual machines when a node is more than 80 percent busy.
You must configure the failover cluster to perform virtual machine balancing when a node’s load is more than 5 percent above the node average.
What PowerShell cmdlet are you running?
Your network includes a Windows Server 2016 failover cluster called Cluster1. Cluster1 runs a virtual machine called VM1. The configuration of the cluster role is shown below:
Which statements are correct?
If VM1 fails three times in an hour, VM1 will remain in error status.
If VM1 performs a failover to another node at 14:00, VM1 will automatically failback to the preferred node at 20:00.
Your network contains a Windows Server 2016 failover cluster called Cluster1. The cluster includes three nodes named Server1, Server2, and Server3. The virtual machines (VMs) are evenly distributed among the three cluster nodes.
You must ensure that the virtual machines of a cluster node that loses connection to the remaining cluster nodes are moved to the remaining nodes within one minute.
What settings do you configure?
Answer: ResiliencyPeriod und ResiliencyLevel
Your network includes two servers running Windows Server 2016. The configuration of the two servers is shown below:
Sie müssen einen Failovercluster erstellen, der die beiden Server als Knoten enthält.
Welche zwei Befehle führen Sie aus?
New-Cluster-Name Cluster1-Node Server1, Server2 -AdministrativeAccessPoint DNS /
Netdom computername Server1 /MakePrimary:server1.certbase.de
Your network includes an Active Directory domain called certbase.de. The domain contains a cluster for network load balancing (NLB cluster).
The configuration of the cluster is shown below:
Which host(s) respond to requests sent to nlb.certbase.de?
Answer: Only NLB2
Your network includes a Windows Server 2016 failover cluster. The cluster includes two servers named Server1 and Server2.
The cluster service on Server1 fails.
You must determine the cause of the service failure.
How do you proceed?
Answer: Start the event display and view the System log.
Your network includes a server called Server1. Server1 has the Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Edition operating system installed.
You want to deploy the first node of a network controller cluster.
What four cmdlets are you running in order?
Answer: Order: 1, 2, 5, 4
Your network includes two servers called Server1 and Server2. The Windows Server 2016 operating system is installed on both servers. Server1 and Server2 are nodes of a failover cluster.
Server1 provides a high-availability virtual machine called VM1.
You must move VM1 from Server1 to Server2. Your solution must ensure that VM1 downtime is kept to a minimum.
What do you do?
Answer: Run the Move-VM cmdlet on Windows PowerShell.
Your network consists of three servers called Server1, Server2 and Server3. Windows Server 2016 is installed on all three servers.
The Hyper-V role is installed on Server1 and Server2. Server3 runs the target iSCSI server role service.
You have to create a Hyper-V Cluster
