Gubu84 from United Kingdom – 09 12 2013, 6:50 AM Report Spam @Haed98: New question. The correct answers are A and C. TCP is only used, not UDP. See http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-4-esxi-installable-vcenter/index.jsp?topic=/com.vmware.vsphere.esxi_server_config.doc_41/esx_server_config/securing_an_esx_configuration/r_tcp_and_udp_ports_for_management_access.html for ports used. There is a service called CIM Server in the Services section in the Security Profile. haed98 from France – 09 11 2013, 10:25 PM Report Spam Hi Gubu84,Just want to submit a NEW question found in the VCP5-DCV mock exam:=============================================Q: An administrator finds that the Hardware Status tab is unavailable when an ESXi host is selected in vCenter Server. Which two steps could be taken to investigate the issue? (Choose two.) A: Check to see if TCP port 5989 is open on the vCenter Server to allow CIM traffic.B: Check the status of the vCenter Hardware Service in vCenter Service Status.C: Check the status of the CIM Server service on the Security Profile of the host.D: Check to see if UDP port 5989 is open on the vCenter Server to allow CIM traffic.—–Answer: A & D because:- The status of the vCenter Hardware Service is checked in the plug-In Manager.- There is no service with " CIM Server service".- The CIM Data Feed service status is checked in the vCenter Service status=============================================Thank you very much for your valuable support and help… Ian from United Kingdom – 09 11 2013, 11:42 AM Report Spam Thanks Gubu, passed today in the UK, 400/500.

The baseline with the fewest CPUs listed contains the newest CPUs. E50: VMware have said that since v3 that VMFS has the same performance as RDM. For I/O intensive applications Eager zeroed is the best on first write followed by lazy and thin. After first write lazy and thin are as good as eager. So the consensus is to pick eager and lazy. B46: See the last sentence here: http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-4-esxi-installable-vcenter/index.jsp?topic=/com.vmware.vsphere.esxi_server_config.doc_40/esx_server_config/configuring_storage/t_add_local_storage.html " If you use the vCenter Server system to manage your hosts, the newly created datastore is automatically added to all hosts." Jigz from Unknown – 09 07 2013, 2:13 AM Report Spam hi, G,Q26 should be C because it create new base line and only latest family. let me know if this is true? E,Q50 : was it supposed to be Raw Device Mapped Disk & Thick Provision Eager Zeroed Disk? I thought answer was different. B, Q46 : I think answer should be "manual refresh is required on each ESXi host" let me know if that is true. Thanks SH from United States from United States – 09 06 2013, 10:21 PM Report Spam This is valid in the United States, thanks Gubu84! Passed today with a score in the 400's (passing score is 300, so I had plenty of room). Most of the questions and exhibts that were in the exam were covered by this dump. There were a handful of different questions (maybe 3-4), but nothing that was really outside the box of what's covered here. jay from Austria – 09 06 2013, 4:34 PM Report Spam Big thanks Gubu passed today with 475, nearly all questions from this dump some questions reworded , and some answers reworded too, approx 7 new questions don't recall exactly but they are derivatives of previous questions so if you understand the theory the answer will be quite obvious , Jay Gubu84 from Ireland – 09 06 2013, 3:29 PM Report Spam Hi again Tushar: I know this link is from 4.1 but it probably still applies: pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-5-esx-vcenter/index.jsp?topic=/com.vmware.vsphere.bsa.doc_40/vc_admin_guide/performance_statistics/c_troubleshoot_cpu.html Point 4: Increase the CPU shares to give the virtual machine more opportunities to run. The total ready time on the host might remain at the same level if the host system is constrained by CPU. If the host ready time doesn't decrease, set the CPU reservations for high-priority virtual machines to guarantee that they receive the required CPU cycles. Gubu84 from Ireland – 09 06 2013, 3:21 PM Report Spam @tushar: I agree, the logic is warped. There are some machines that do need 2 or more vCPUs but it's usually mentioned as part of their minimum requirements in their documentation.The blogger here (http://vmtoday.com/2010/08/high-cpu-ready-poor-performance/) recommends a few suggestions like:Using Shares and/or Reservations on the VMReduce the number of vCPU’sMove the VM to a less used hostMove the VM to a more powerful hostSplit the server in two. The answer for us could be either "use shares" or "migrate to another host". Tushar Sakarkar from India – 09 06 2013, 2:52 PM Report Spam @Gubu84 But isn't that strange for logics? CPU Ready value by definition is that CPU is busy and is taking time for scheduling instructions, an extra vCPU should help the 1st vCPU in the act & performance should be improved. But, according to you and the article, it gets worse. What's the use of VMs with multiple CPU then! IraqiBoy from Germany from Germany – 09 06 2013, 1:36 PM Report Spam I passed exam with 470/500. Dump is still valid in Germany, passed today Gubu84 from Ireland – 09 06 2013, 11:26 AM Report Spam @Tushar Sakarkar: We can't have a long conversation on this forum because it limits you to 5 posts per day. D12 has came up before with Oplix on my 14th 08ust dump.We changed it based on 2 documents which suggested that adding vCPU actually made %rdy time worse, not better. http://www.sqlskills.com/blogs/jonathan/cpu-ready-time-in-vmware-and-how-to-interpret-its-real-meaning/See the last line under the "What scenarios cause high CPU Ready times?" section. There's also a VMWare PDF called "CPU Overcommitment VMware vSPhere 5.1" which also recommends not adding extra vCPUs in an attempt to decrease %RDY. The author shows that it actually makes things worse. Tushar Sakarkar from India – 09 06 2013, 10:43 AM Report Spam @Gubu84 Qs # 342 (Exam D, Q12): If CPU Ready values is high, it means the vCPU is busy for the scheduling, so 2nd vCPU can be added for scheduling => for higher performance. In your 'explanation' you've said adding a vCPU will add to the CPU Ready value, which I consider wrong explanation. Would appreciate a dialogue regarding this.

Thanks Gubu84 from United Kingdom – 09 06 2013, 8:56 AM Report Spam Congrats to all who passed using the dump. @Dofik E48: 05be another badly worded question from vmware or whoever saw the original question remembered the answers incorrectly. The important thing to remember is that E1000, VMXNET 3 and VMXNET 2 (Enhanced) only appear when creating a VM. E38: I looked up the storage array type (VMW_SATP_CX) and it uses MRU as the default path policy. From page 163 of vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-50-storage-guide.pdf. Most Recently Used (VMware) The host selects the path that it used most recently. When the path becomes unavailable, the host selects an alternative path. The host does not revert back to the original path when that path becomes available again. There is no preferred path setting with the MRU policy. MRU is the default policy for most active-passive storage devices. The answer could be A or B but I think it's B. A26:It could be either NFS or iSCSI. Look at this link: http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2012/02/storage-protocol-comparison-a-vsphere-perspective.html – a comparison of all storage types. There's a variation on this question that adds "must support raw device mapping" which makes iSCSI the answer. dj from Unknown – 09 06 2013, 6:13 AM Report Spam valid dump. Passed! Gubu, Thanks very much! Some of the wordings are changed. dofik from France – 09 05 2013, 10:00 PM Report Spam Hi Gubu,Thx for your great job, I have 3 questions: A26: why not iSCSI is the best ? E38: in the case of Most Recently Used for FC, how many paths should be active? (cf. G29: in the case of Round Robin for FC, there're only 2 paths). E48: I can only find "VMXNET2 Enhanced" from the link you provided, can't find "VMXNET2", neither "Enhanced VMXNET", what are they ? Akuma from Thailand – 09 05 2013, 7:29 PM Report Spam This works. Passed with 430. Thanks!!! nickdude from India – 09 05 2013, 5:07 PM Report Spam hey Gubu, thank you bro. I passed with 475 from India. each and every questions were from this dumb. only few chnage answer options. I have gone through other dumps too but felt that many answers were wrong so atlast i found out this one which is more than enough and it helped me alot. Thank u dude…thank u so much. I really appreciate your hard work. sami99 from United States – 09 05 2013, 4:17 PM Report Spam certbp: have you taken the test yet? how was it? did the dump help?? certbp from United States – 09 05 2013, 4:15 PM Report Spam Passed today with 90% – there were a few "new" questions, but that may be because I hadn't specifically gone through each of the 50 question variations. I had done timed, 85 question, random order (questions and answers) tests, looking up answers from the official materials referenced in the blueprint whenever I got them wrong over the past week before taking the exam.
