You download an Azure Resource Manager template based on an existing virtual machine. The template will be used to deploy 100 virtual machines.
You need to modify the template to reference an administrative password. You must prevent the password from being stored in plain text.
What should you create to store the password?

  • A. an Azure Key Vault and an access policy
  • B. a Recovery Services vault and a backup policy
  • C. Azure Active Directory (AD) Identity Protection and an Azure policy
  • D. an Azure Storage account and an access policy


Answer : A

Explanation:
You can use a template that allows you to deploy a simple Windows VM by retrieving the password that is stored in a Key Vault. Therefore, the password is never put in plain text in the template parameter file.

Answer : Explanation

Explanation:
Box 1:
The Autoscale scale out rule increases the number of VMs by 2 if the CPU threshold is 80% or higher. The initial instance count is 4 and rises to 6 when the 2 extra instances of VMs are added.
Box 2:
The Autoscale scale in rule decreases the number of VMs by 4 if the CPU threshold is 30% or lower. The initial instance count is 4 and thus cannot be reduced to
0 as the minimum instances is set to 2. Instances are only added when the CPU threshold reaches 80%.

Please wait while the virtual machine loads. Once loaded, you may proceed to the lab section. This may take a few minutes, and the wait time will not be deducted from your overall test time.
When the Next button is available, click it to access the lab section. In this section, you will perform a set of tasks in a live environment. While most functionality will be available to you as it would be in a live environment, some functionality (e.g, copy and paste, ability to navigate to external websites) will not be possible by design.
Scoring is based on the outcome of performing the tasks stated in the lab. In other words, it doesn’t matter how you accomplish the task, if you successfully perform it, you will earn credit for that task.
Labs are not timed separately, and this exam may have more than one lab that you must complete. You can use as much time as you would like to complete each lab. But, you should manage your time appropriately to ensure that you are able to complete the lab(s) and all other sections of the exam in the time provided.
Please note that once you submit your work by clicking the Next button within a lab, you will NOT be able to return to the lab.

Leave the other defaults.


Step 4: Finish the Wizard -

You plan to automate the deployment of a virtual machine scale set that uses the Windows Server 2016 Datacenter image.
You need to ensure that when the scale set virtual machines are provisioned, they have web server components installed.
Which two actions should you perform? Each correct answer presents part of the solution.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

  • A. Modify the extensionProfile section of the Azure Resource Manager template.
  • B. Create an automation account.
  • C. Upload a configuration script.
  • D. Create a new virtual machine scale set in the Azure portal.
  • E. Create an Azure policy.


Answer : AD

Explanation:
Virtual Machine Scale Sets can be used with the Azure Desired State Configuration (DSC) extension handler. Virtual machine scale sets provide a way to deploy and manage large numbers of virtual machines, and can elastically scale in and out in response to load. DSC is used to configure the VMs as they come online so they are running the production software.

HOTSPOT -
You have an Azure subscription named Subscription1. Subscription1 contains a virtual machine named VM1.
You install and configure a web server and a DNS server on VM1.
VM1 has the effective network security rules shown in the following exhibit.


Use the drop-down menus to select the answer choice that completes each statement based on the information presented.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:



Answer : Explanation

Explanation:
Box 1:
Rule2 blocks ports 50-60, which includes port 53, the DNS port. Internet users can reach the Web server, since it uses port 80.
Box 2:
If Rule2 is removed internet users can reach the DNS server as well.
Note: Rules are processed in priority order, with lower numbers processed before higher numbers, because lower numbers have higher priority. Once traffic matches a rule, processing stops. As a result, any rules that exist with lower priorities (higher numbers) that have the same attributes as rules with higher priorities are not processed.

You have an Azure subscription that contains a virtual machine named VM1. VM1 hosts a line-of-business application that is available 24 hours a day. VM1 has one network interface and one managed disk. VM1 uses the D4s v3 size.
You plan to make the following changes to VM1:
-> Change the size to D8s v3.
-> Add a 500-GB managed disk.
-> Add the Puppet Agent extension.
-> Attach an additional network interface.
Which change will cause downtime for VM1?

  • A. Add the Puppet Agent extension.
  • B. Change the size to D8s v3.
  • C. Add a 500-GB managed disk.
  • D. Attach an additional network interface.


Answer : B

Explanation:
While resizing the VM it must be in a stopped state.

You have an Azure virtual machine named VM1 that you use for testing. VM1 is protected by Azure Backup.
You delete VM1.
You need to remove the backup data stored for VM1.
What should you do first?

  • A. Delete the Recovery Services vault.
  • B. Delete the storage account.
  • C. Stop the backup
  • D. Modify the backup policy.


Answer : D

Explanation:
Azure Backup provides backup for virtual machines â€" created through both the classic deployment model and the Azure Resource Manager deployment model â€" by using custom-defined backup policies in a Recovery Services vault.
With the release of backup policy management, customers can manage backup policies and model them to meet their changing requirements from a single window. Customers can edit a policy, associate more virtual machines to a policy, and delete unnecessary policies to meet their compliance requirements.
Incorrect Answers:
B: You can't delete a Recovery Services vault if it is registered to a server and holds backup data. If you try to delete a vault, but can't, the vault is still configured to receive backup data.

You have an Azure subscription named Subscription1.
You deploy a Linux virtual machine named VM1 to Subscription1.
You need to monitor the metrics and the logs of VM1.
What should you use?

  • A. the AzurePerformanceDiagnostics extension
  • B. Azure HDInsight
  • C. Linux Diagnostic Extension (LAD) 3.0
  • D. Azure Analysis Services


Answer : A

Explanation:
You can use extensions to configure diagnostics on your VMs to collect additional metric data.
The basic host metrics are available, but to see more granular and VM-specific metrics, you need to install the Azure diagnostics extension on the VM. The Azure diagnostics extension allows additional monitoring and diagnostics data to be retrieved from the VM.

You have an Azure subscription that contains 100 virtual machines.
You regularly create and delete virtual machines.
You need to identify unattached disks that can be deleted.
What should you do?

  • A. From Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer, view the Account Management properties.
  • B. From the Azure portal, configure the Advisor recommendations.
  • C. From Azure Cost Management, view Advisor Recommendations.
  • D. From Azure Cost Management, view Cost Analysis.


Answer : A

Explanation:
You can find unused disks in the Azure Storage Explorer console.Once you drill down to the Blob containers under a storage account, you can see the lease state of the residing VHD (the lease state determines if the VHD is being used by any resource) and the VM to which it is leased out. If you find that the lease state and the VM fields are blank, it means that the VHD in question is unused. The screenshot below shows two active VHDs being used by VMs as data and OS disks.
The name of the VM and lease state are shown in the "VM Name" and "Lease State" columns, respectively.
