question

which of the following statemetns are ture of striped volumes
answer

striped volumes provide enhanced performance over simple volumes if a single physical disk in teh striped volume fails, all fo the data in teh entire volume is lost

answer

raid 5
question

what is the next step after creating a Virtual hard disk
answer

initializing the disk adn creating volumes on it, just as you would a physical disk
question

what is the key advantage of server manager over the disk management snap-in
answer

the disk management snap-in enables you to create VHD files and mount them on the computer
question

order stetps to create and mount vhd
answer

-log ong with admin rights -click tools, computer management -click disk management, and then create vhd from action menu -specify location path and anme for vhd file, specify max size of disk -select vhd format option -select on of following vhd types -fixed or dynamic expanding -click ok for system to create adn attach the vhd file. the vhd appepars as a disk in the disk management snapin
question

Order the steps to create a virtual disk
answer

-log on with admin priveleges -click files and storage services – storage pools -in the virtual disks tile, select new virtual disk from tasks menu -from respective pages, select the pool in which you want to create a virtual disk and type name for the virtual disk -from select storage layout page, choose amonth simple mirror and partiy options -from specify the provisioning type choose among thin and fixed options -specify the virtual disk size and then click create to confirm
question

order steps to create storage pool
answer

-log on with admin privelges and open server manager -click files and storage services, storage pools -in storage pools tile, select primordial space on server where you wan to create pool , from the tasks menu select new storage pool -specify a name server and physical disks for the pool -confirm selection and close the wizard
question

morries created storage pool consisting of two physical 1tb disks – he then creates three virtual disks and then creats raid-5 volume out of three disks
answer

there is only 2 physical disks, if one of the drives fail – he will lose everything
question

why will adding a 3rd disk to the storage pool fail to improve the fault tlerance of storage plan?
answer

the pool doesn’t have parity – using raid 5 on 3 physical disks creates parity and safety

question

what is a key reason for assigning permissions when configuring file and share access?
answer

imrpoves data security, granting file and share access only to the users who need it

answer

windows server 2012 distrbuted file system

what should settings be for paging file?
answer

should be 1.5 amount of installed memory
