Review Tasks

These Review Tasks allow you to assess how well you grasped the materials in this chapter. Because of the advanced and hands-on nature of this particular exam, a set of tasks is provided instead of a set of questions. You should now attempt to perform each of these tasks without looking at previous sections in this chapter or at other materials, unless necessary. The steps for each task are located within the chapter.

  1. Configure SNMP on vCenter Server and on each ESXi host.
  2. Configure Direct Path I/O for one or more network adapters.
  3. Build a vDS and host migrate all VMs, vmkernel ports, and network adapters from an existing vSS.
  4. Create a vSS, add a virtual switch port group, attach uplink adapters, and assign VLANs using the esxcli namespace.
  5. Configure a vSS to support LLDP and Jumbo Frames.
  6. Configure PVLANs on a vDS, including at least one isolated PVLAN, one community PVLAN, and one promiscuous PVLAN.
  7. Configure Network I/O Control and create a user-defined network resource pool that maps to at least two vSwitch port groups.
