An administrator is planning to upgrade a VMware vCenter instance to version 8. It is currently integrated with the following solutions:
* VMware Aria Automation
* VMware Cloud Director
Which tool can the administrator use to run Interoperability reports before the upgrade process?
The tool that can be used to run interoperability reports before upgrading a vCenter Server instance is vCenter Server Update Planner, which allows checking compatibility with other VMware products.
An administrator needs to perform maintenance on a datastore that Is running the vSphere Cluster Services (vCLS) virtual machines (VMs).
Which feature can the administrator use in this scenario to avoid the use of Storage vMotion on the vCLS VMs?
The feature that can be used to avoid the use of Storage vMotion on the vCLS VMs when performing maintenance on a datastore is vCLS Retreat Mode, which allows temporarily removing the vCLS VMs from the cluster without affecting the cluster services.
What is the role of vSphere Distributed Services Engine?
The role of vSphere Distributed Services Engine is to provide hardware accelerated data processing to boost infrastructure performance by offloading network services from the CPU to the DPU.
A vSphere cluster has the following vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) group configuration:
* Virtual machine (VM) group named DB
* Host groups named PROD11 and PROD55
The administrator wants to force the VMs in the DB group to run on the hosts in the PROD11 group. However, if all the hosts in PROD55.
Which VM/Host rule must the administrator create to ensure that these requirements are met?
Option A is correct because it allows the administrator to create a preferential rule between the DB group and PROD11 group, which will force the VMs in the DB group to run on the hosts in the PROD11 group if possible, but will allow them to run on the hosts in PROD55 group if necessary. Option B is incorrect because it will create a preferential rule between the DB group and PROD55 group, which will force the VMs in the DB group to run on the hosts in PROD55 group if possible, which is not what the administrator wants. Option C is incorrect because it is the same as option B. Option D is incorrect because it will create a required rule between the DB group and PROD11 group, which will force the VMs in the DB group to run only on the hosts in PROD11 group and not allow them to run on the hosts in PROD55 group if needed.

An administrator is asked to configure a security policy at the port group level of a standard switch.
The following requirements must be met:
* The security policy must apply to all virtual machines on portgroup-1.
* All traffic must be forwarded, regardless of the destination.
The security policy that must be configured at the port group level to allow all traffic to be forwarded regardless of the destination is promiscuous mode set to accept, which allows receiving all traffic on a virtual switch port.
