To create a grid, what does the CA AppLogic Backbone Fabric Controller (BFC) require?

A.    A set of servers preloaded with CentOS, ssh keys installed on each server, and public and private IP addresses
B.    A set of servers with CentOS installed, a list of Media Access Control (MAC) addresses for the public interface of each server, network address details, and access to power controllers
C.    A set of servers with no operating system installed, a list of MAC addresses for the private interface of each server, network address details, access to power controllers, and a Service Level Agreement (SLA) policy defined
D.    A set of servers with no operating system installed, a list of MAC addresses for the private interface of each server, network address details, access to power controllers, authentication configuration, and VLAN configurations

Answer: C

You have configured the hardware and software for the servers that you will use for your CA AppLogic installation. You have two bare metal servers that you will use for your grid servers. You review a configuration list for your Backbone Fabric Controller (BFC), which includes the following items:

– CentOS 5.5 i386 installed
– Two Gigabit Ethernet adapters
– YUM repository (external or local for operating system updates)
– 10 GB hard disk space (to house multiple versions of CA AppLogic)

Which list item will you need to revise?

A.    2GB RAM
B.    YUM repository
C.    10 GB hard disk space
D.    CentOS 5.5 i386 installed

Answer: C

What does a standard, non-highly available configuration of the CA AppLogic fabric consist of?

A.    One public NIC, one private NIC, and one power interface NIC
B.    Two public NICs, two private NICs, one storage NIC, and one power network interface NIC
C.    One public Network Interface Card (NIC), one power interface, one storage NIC, and one power interface NIC
D.    One public NIC, two private NICs, one Storage Area Network (SAN) Host Bus Adapter (HBA), and one power network interface NIC

Answer: A

When testing application high availability (HA), you need to ascertain what happens as a result of the failure of:

A.    A server
B.    A package.
C.    An appliance
D.    An assembly

Answer: A

A key characteristic of CA AppLogic is that it separates:

A.    Applications from components.
B.    Automation from orchestration.
C.    The application from the data center infrastructure.
D.    Administration functions from auditing functions at the data center level.

Answer: C

Which statement about CA AppLogic abstraction and virtualization is TRUE?

A.    CA AppLogic virtualizes direct access to peripheral devices, such as tape drives.
B.    For each type of virtual resource, there are several scalable, system wide resource pools.
C.    CA AppLogic virtualizes access to two types of peripheral devices: block storage devices and serial ports.
D.    CA AppLogic abstracts hardware into three different types of virtual resources: virtual volumes, virtual network interfaces, and compute.

Answer: D

You need to integrate an application running on CA AppLogic into a legacy environment. The application needs a shared Storage Area Network (SAN) storage device that has a shared file system. To perform a successful implementation, what can you do?

A.    You can do nothing in this case, because CA AppLogic is unable to use storage outside the internal IP SAN.
B.    Use network cards on the private network with iSCSI support which will automatically initiate connections to the SAN on boot.
C.    Create a custom appliance that will mount a remote share using Network File System (NFS) through a combination of NASR and OUT appliances.
D.    Install a Host Bus Adapter (HBA) on each server, plug into the fiber channel network, mount the volume on grid nodes, and enable CA AppLogic to manage it.

Answer: C

You are configuring the Backbone Fabric Controller (BFC) environment. Which step do you need to perform on the Discovery tab, if you want to configure Blacklist discovery mode?

A.    Add the Media Access Control (MAC) addresses of any server or device that is added to the backbone network through DHCP and that should not be discovered by the BFC.
B.    Enable the BFC to power control grid servers by Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI).
C.    Add the backbone MAC addresses of all grid servers that should be part of this BFC.
D.    Enable the MAC addresses of all grid servers to be discovered using IPMI.

Answer: A

Which statement about object migration in CA AppLogic is TRUE?

A.    The object is removed from the original grid.
B.    The source object can be migrated while it is running.
C.    After migration, the object can be found in the archive on the impex volume on the destination grid.
D.    During the migration, the copied object can be configured by setting application boundary properties and resources.

Answer: D
