You have a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2012. Server1 has the Hyper-V server role installed.
The disks on Server1 are configured as shown in the exhibit.
You create a virtual machine on Server1. You need to ensure that you can configure a pass-through disk for the virtual machine.
What should you do?
A. Convert Disk 1 to a dynamic disk. B. Delete partition E.
C. Convert Disk 1 to a GPT disk. D. Take Disk 1 offline.
Correct Answer: D Section: Hyper-V Explanation

Pass -through Disk Configuration
Hyper-V allows virtual machines to access storage mapped directly to the Hyper-V server without requiring the volume be configured. The storage can either be a physical disk internal to the Hyper-V server or it can be a Storage Area Network (SAN) Logical Unit (LUN) mapped to the Hyper-V server. To ensure the Guest has exclusive access to the storage, it must be placed in an Offline state from the Hyper-V server
perspective. Additionally, this raw piece of storage is not limited in size so, hypothetically, it can be a multi- terabyte LUN.
After storage is mapped to the Hyper-V server, it will appear as a raw volume and will be in an Offline state
(depending on the SAN Policy (Figure 1-1)) as seen in Figure 1.
I stated earlier that a disk must be Offline from the Hyper-V servers’ perspective in order for the Guest to have exclusive access. However, a raw volume must first be initialized before it can be used. To accomplish this in the Disk Management interface, the disk must first be brought Online. Once Online, the disk will show as being Not Initialized (Figure 2).
Right-click on the disk and select Initialize Disk (Figure 3).
Select either an MBR or GPT partition type (Figure 4).
Once a disk is initialized, it can once again be placed in an Offline state. If the disk is not in an Offline state, it will not be available for selection when configuring the Guest’s storage .
In order to configure a Pass-through disk in a Guest, you must select Attach a virtual disk later in the New
Virtual Machine Wizard (Figure 5).
If the Pass-through disk will be used to boot the operating system, it must be attached to an IDE Controller. Data disks can take advantage of SCSI controllers. In Figure 6, a Pass-through disk is attached to IDE Controller 0.
Note: If the disk does not appear in the drop down list, ensure the disk is Offline in the Disk Management interface (In Server CORE, use the diskpart.exe CLI).
Once the Pass-through disk is configured, the Guest can be started and data can placed on the drive. If an operating system will be installed, the installation process will properly prepare the disk. If the disk will be used for data storage, it must be prepared in the Guest operating system before data can be placed on it.
If a Pass-through disk, being used to support an operating system installation, is brought Online before the Guest is started, the Guest will fail to start. When using Pass-through disks to support an operating system installation, provisions must be made for storing the Guest configuration file in an alternate location. This is because the entire Pass-through disk is consumed by the operating system installation. An example would be to locate the configuration file on another internal drive in the Hyper-V server itself. Or, if it is a cluster, the configuration file can be hosted on a separate cluster providing highly available file services. Be aware that Pass-through disks cannot be dynamically expanded. Additionally, when using Pass-through disks, you
lose the capability to take snapshots, and finally, you cannot use differencing disks with Pass-through disks.
Your company’s security policy states that all of the servers deployed to a branch office must not have the graphical user interface (GUI) installed.
In a branch office, a support technician installs a server with a GUI installation of Windows Server 2012 on a new server, and then configures the server as a DHCP server.
You need to ensure that the new server meets the security policy.
You want to achieve this goal by using the minimum amount of administrative effort. What should you do?
A. From Server Manager, uninstall the User Interfaces and Infrastructure feature. B. Reinstall Windows Server 2012on the server.
C. From Windows PowerShell, run Uninstall-WindowsFeature Desktop-Experience. D. From Windows PowerShell, run Uninstall-WindowsFeature PowerShell-ISE.
Correct Answer: A
Section: Remote Management & Server Core
You have 3 server that runs Windows Server 2012. The server contains the disks configured as shown in the following table.
You need to create a volume that can store up to 3 TB of user files.
The solution must ensure that the user files are available if one of the disks in the volume fails.
What should you create?
A. A storage pool on Disk 2 and Disk 3
B. A raid 5 volume on Disk 1, Disk 2 and Disk 3
C. A storage pool on Disk 1 and Disk 3
D. A mirrored volume on Disk 1 and Disk 4
Correct Answer: A
Section: Storage & High availability
A storage pool can be created that is configured to mirror between the two disks.
You have a server named Core1 that has a Server Core Installation of Windows Server 2012. Core1 has the Hyper-V server role installed.
Core1 has two network adapters from different third-party hardware vendors.
You need to configure network traffic failover to prevent connectivity loss if a network adapter fails. What should you use?
D. Add -NetSwitchTeamMember
Correct Answer: C Section: Hyper-V Explanation
You have a server named Server1 that has the Network Policy and Access Services server role installed.
You plan to configure Network Policy Server (NPS) on Server1 to use certificate-based authentication for
You obtain a certificate for NPS. You need to ensure that NPS can perform certificate-based authentication.
To which store should you import the certificate?
To answer, select the appropriate store in the answer area.
