Back with part 2 of the questions that I don’t understand from the vce. There are lots of questions about DNS/DHCP configs that have several questions associated and to be honest, I’m not that great with those.

To be honest I have no idea why the answers are what they are and that’s a huge point of contention for me. I have trouble memorizing but perhaps i can figure it out. at least sort of. What is server 1’s ip? who knows


  • Pt 1. Ok so there is a host record, im assuming on server 1 but its not giving an ip for server on or
  • specifying that this DNS manager with zone records is on server 1 but we are going to assume that.
  • Pt. 2 So now that I’m looking at this im starting to think that I wasn’t reading the question closely because if you look at the record for host2 it does not have an IP any where in it. I don’t really understand how that resolves but ok.
  • Pt. 3 This one is a little more confusing. I’m honestly not sure why its necessary to have the host resolve back to its self or if im obsessing over the amount of information provided. Anyway, that’s simple enough.

This one actually has an answer. I’m not sure that there is much to know other that some PowerShell but i’m shocked it has an answer.

I thought that I wouldn’t find any thing but I actually did and fairly quickly. Set-VMhost

Its really hard to be much more direct than that.

This one seriously makes no sense and there isn’t enough information that I can read into to figure out whats going on. Its clear in the question that 1 holds roles, it doesn’t say what 2 is doing and then you take dc1 offline and run a move cmd without using -force. This is memorization for me. Honestly i don’t think ill find an answer.

This one took some looking at but I realized there is no record for server 2 or adatum and that’s the reason they don’t resolve. Which seems really obvious once you start actually looking at it.

That’s all for today. I think at this point the only thing left is to memorize the ones I really cant fully understand. Which seems kind of absurd. Whatever, keep pressing on.

Various study questions

I’m almost ready to test but there are about 60 questions I’m still struggling with so I’m going to do a few posts about some of those. I’m going to start with this question about connecting on prem ADFS with Office 365 that includes a service I’m not familiar with. So these questions do not have links or explications most of the time, its just the answers. Which is fine once you generally can ‘speak server.’

Connect to Office 365 PowerShell

The most important note here is “Commands in the Microsoft Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell have Msol in their cmdlet name.” because it seemed really odd to me at first and I wasn’t sure what was going on with it. But at the end of the day i have to remember service, context and then domain.

There are a handful of questions with a ton of answers that get confusing because most of them are about failover testing and that should not be that complicated but the scenarios seem to vary so I’m going to get into that too but this first one is about DNS mobile device registration which somehow has something to do with DHCP and either I don’t understand one of these two technologies or this shit is confusing.

So I cant find a dang thing about this but I spent a good 20 mins looking for an answer so I should be able to remember the DHCP Policy Config Wizard. Honestly this scenario isn’t mentioned any where online. It’s really hard to call out MSFT for these types of questions but I’m praying that this VCE is enough to actually pass this test. I guess I’ll find out soon.

This another question with ‘a lot of possible answers’ in it

However there is a pretty straight forward TechNet article on the subject.

Set Up Hyper-V Replica

It clearly explains the failover process in this scenario and being able to test it through through MMC hyper-v management. Very specific.

Test failover: If you want to run a test failover right-click the primary virtual machine and select Replication > Test Failover. Pick the latest or other recovery point if configured. A new test virtual machine will be created and started on the secondary site. After you’ve finished testing, select Stop Test Failover on the replica virtual machine to clean it up. Note that for a virtual machine you can only run one test failover at a time.

This is another ‘lots of answers’ question.

How to migrate Virtual Machine Storage in HYPER-V Failover Clustering

This is straight up instructions on how to do it. It seems confusing for some absurd reason that you would test failover with Hyper-V Manager and migrate storage with the Failover Clustering Console but that is how it works. Hopefully ill remember that.

I think that’s all for tonight but I have a few more blog posts to do and then hopefully a test to pass. Rather than fail.
