Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012
Question No: 81 – (Topic 8)
You work as a Network Administrator at ABC.com.
The network includes a System Center 2012 infrastructure.
System Center 2012 – Service Manager is used by the help desk department to track any
problems reported with network devices, servers or computers.
You want to be notified every time a new incident that pertains to a server problem is opened.
You open the System Center 2012 Service Manager Console. What should you do next?
You should configure an announcement.
You should configure a subscription.
You should configure a template.
You should configure a connector.
Answer: C Explanation:
Although you will need a subscription to receive the messages, you need a template first (to satisfy the requirement -You want to be notified every time a new incident that pertains to a server problem is openedquot;)
When you create a template, you can specify a target class. The target class is used to target certain types of incidents for notifications.

Your company has a private cloud that is managed by using a System Center 2012 Operations Manager infrastructure.
You have a distributed application named App1. App1 has the following service level objectives (SLOs):
->At least 99.9 percent uptime
->No more than 85 percent average CPU utilization
You need to add the SLOs that monitor the required information to Service Level Tracking.
Which SLO or SLOs should you add? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose all that apply.)
Monitor state SLO – Availability
Monitor state SLO – Security
Collection rule SLO
Monitor state SLO – Performance
Monitor state SLO – Configuration
Answer: A,C Explanation:
To define a service level objective for an application
Open the Operations console with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators user role.
In the navigation pane, expand Management Pack Objects, and then click Service Level Tracking.
In the Tasks pane, click Create.
In the Service Level Tracking dialog box, type a name for the service level that you are defining. For example, type LOB Application 1. Optionally, you can provide a description. Click Next.
On the Objects to Track page, under Targeted class, click Select.
In the Select a Target Class dialog box, select a class for the service level, such as Distributed Application, from the list in the text box. You can search for a class by typing its name into the Look For text box. Click OK to close the Select a Target dialog box.
You can use the Scope option to specify the scope for the service level. The default selection is to use all objects of the targeted class.
Select the management pack that this service level will be saved in. You can use an
existing management pack or create a new one.
On the Service Level Objectives page, click Add, and then click Monitor state SLO to create a new monitor.
This monitor will track the availability of the application. Define the state monitor as follows:
In the Service level objective name text box, type a name for the service level objective. For this scenario, type Availability.
From the Monitor drop-down list, choose the specific monitor that you want to use to measure the objective. For this scenario, choose Availability.
Using the Service level objective goal (%) spin box, provide the numerical measure for your objective. For example, select 99.990 to indicate that your goal is 99.99% availability.
You can refine what the monitor tracks to determine availability by selecting or clearing any of the following state criteria:
Unplanned maintenance Unmonitored
Monitoring unavailable Monitor disabled Planned maintenance Warning
On the Service Level Objectives page, click Add, and then click Collection rule SLO to create a new collection rule. This rule will track the performance of the application Define the performance collection rule as follows:
In the Service level objective name: text box, type a name for the service level objective. For this scenario, type Performance.
Under Targeted class, click Select to open the Select a Target Class dialog box. Specify the target class for the rule from the list of targets in the text box. Note that this class must be contained in the distributed application.
For this scenario, select the specific class the rule is targeted to, such as Windows Server 2008 Operating System.
Under Performance collection rule, click Select to open the Select a Rule dialog box. Specify the performance collection rule to use. For this scenario, choose Collect Processor\
% Processor Time performance counter, and then click OK.
Using one of the Aggregation method options, choose one of the following: Average
Use the Service level objective goal drop-down list to specify either Less than or More than, and enter a value in the adjacent text box. For this scenario, choose Less Than and 80.
This indicates that the performance goal is to never exceed 80% processor time.
On the Service Level Objectives page, click Next.
On the Summary page, review the settings, and then click Finish. When the Completion page appears, click Close.

Your company has a private cloud that contains a System Center 2012 infrastructure.
Audit Collection Services (ACS) is enabled. A server named Server1 has Operations Manager installed.
You upgrade Operations Manager on Server1 and the ACS collector to System Center 2012 R2.
You need to ensure that agents that have been installed by using a push installation are upgraded.
The solution must ensure that ACS is enabled on the agents.
Which three actions should you perform in sequence? To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of actions to the answer area and arrange them in the correct order.
Question No: 87 – (Topic 8)
You have a System Center 2012 R2 infrastructure that has Orchestrator and Service Manager installed.
Integration between Orchestrator and Service Manager is configured.
You need to ensure that when a change request is made in Service Manager, the following requirements are met:
->The ticket number is logged to a file.
->The file contains the ticket numbers for every change request.
->Each time a ticket number is logged to the file, an email message is sent to an administrator.
Which activities should you use in a runbook?
Monitor Object, Insert Line, and Send Email
Get Activity, Append Line, and Send Email
Monitor State, Insert Line, and Send Email
Monitor Object, Append Line, and Send Email
Answer: D Explanation:
You do not know when the action should take place. So you need the monitor to trigger your action (not the other way around). The get activity is used when a runbook is already running.
Above states to use the Append Line command for logging purposes (which is not
described as such for the Insert Line command).
quot;Use the Append Line activity to append lines to a log file to create audits trails of runbooks.quot;

In the Configuration pane, double-click Desired Configuration Management Event Workflow Configuration.
Question No: 89 – (Topic 8)
Your company deploys System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).
You plan to perform a new server deployment. The new server deployment will include a custom application named App1.
You use Server Application Virtualization (Server App-V) to virtualize App1. You create an application profile.
You create a service deployment to deploy the App1 by using a Windows Server 2012 R2 template.
After deploying the service, you discover that App1 was not installed. You view the application profile as shown in the exhibit. (Click the Exhibit button.)
You need to ensure that App1 is installed when you deploy the service. What should you add to the application profile?
A Script Application that adds the Server App-V Agent
A Script Application that adds the WebDeploy Agent
A Script to Application that installs the Server App-V Agent
A Script to Application that installs the WebDeploy Agent
Answer: A Explanation:
You use Server Application Virtualization (Server App-V) to virtualize App1quot; (App-V application package, not a Web Deploy application package)
Please see the following page for more information on why I think the answer is A. Here is the specific quote from that page- quot;In VMM in System Center 2012 R2, if you kept the Compatibility option (described in the previous step) set to the default option, General, you can add an application that will be deployed by running a script, such as a script based on a Setup.exe installation program. To add such an application, select Script Application.quot;
Also, in the PetShop example, the application you are deploying is specifically mentioned
to be a web deploy application-
6. Configure Applications: The application profile for the web tier will contain:
Pre-install application profile script to install the Web Deploy client
The web deploy application package
Post-install application deployment script to configure the web deploy application http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg703293.aspx – How to Install the Server Application Virtualization
Use one of the following ways to install the Server App-V Agent. After you install the Agent, you can review the
SAVSetupChainerLog.txtfile for information about the installation process.
Copy the Server App-V Agent installation files (Agentsetup.exe) to the computer that is running Windows Server where you want to install the Server App-V Agent. You must also use the correct version of the installation file that matches the architecture of the computer that you are installing on, x86 or x64.
To start the Microsoft Server Application Virtualization Agent setup wizard, double-click AgentSetup.exe.
On the Welcome page, click Next.
Script to Application is from Orchestrator: http://blogs.technet.com/b/neilp/archive/2013/11/14/scvmm_5f00_servietemplate_5f00_sco rch.aspx
And the exhibit shows a VMM screenshot (at least that is what I think it is). So I think it should be A

You need to create a central diagram that contains the complete health information of App1.
You import the SQL, IIS, and Windows Server management packs. What should you create next?
a dashboard view
a distributed application model
a Service Level Dashboard
a diagram view
Answer: B Explanation:
You need to create a distributed application first to be able to create the service level dashboard.
First a DA, followed by a service level objective, and finally a Service Level Dashboard. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh212692.aspx http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh230719.aspx
