Microsoft - 70-740: Installation, Storage, and Compute with Windows Server 2016

Sample Questions

Question: 289
Measured Skill: Implement high availability (30–35%)

Note: This question is part of a series of questions that present the same scenario. Each questions in the series contains a unique solution that might meet the stated goals. Some questions sets might have more than one correct solution, while others might not have a correct solution. Determine whether the solution meets the stated goals.

You are a server administrator at a company named Contoso, Ltd. Contoso has a Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V environment configured as shown in the following table.

All of the virtual switches are of the external type.

You need to ensure that you can move virtual machines between the hosts without causing the virtual machines to disconnect from the network.

Solution: You implement live migration by using Host1 and Host3.

Does this meet the goal?

B No

Correct answer: A


Hyper-V live migration moves running virtual machines from one physical server to another with no impact on virtual machine availability to users.

Question: 290
Measured Skill: Implement Hyper-V (20–25%)

Your network includes a server named VM1. VM1 is a virtual machine running on a Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V host.

You must create a checkpoint that contains the memory state of the VM1 virtual machine.

Which commands should you run?

(To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.)

ACheckpoint-VM -Name VM1 -CheckpointType Production
Get-VHDSnapshot -Name VM1 -SnapshotName Snapshot1
B Checkpoint-VM -Name VM1 -CheckpointType Standard
Export-VMSnapshot -Name VM1 -SnapshotName Snapshot1
C Get-VMSnapshot -Name VM1 -CheckpointType ProductionOnly
Export-VMSnapshot -Name VM1 -SnapshotName Snapshot1
D Get-VMSnapshot -Name VM1 -CheckpointType ProductionOnly
Checkpoint-VM -Name VM1 -SnapshotName Snapshot1
E Set-VM -Name VM1 -CheckpointType Production
Get-VHDSnapshot -Name VM1 -SnapshotName Snapshot1
F Set-VM -Name VM1 -CheckpointType Standard
Checkpoint-VM -Name VM1 -SnapshotName Snapshot1

Correct answer: F


Windows Server 2016 and Windows 0 Hyper-V include two types of checkpoints:

  • Standard Checkpoints -- takes a snapshot of the virtual machine and virtual machine memory state at the time the checkpoint is initiated. A snapshot is not a full backup and can cause data consistency issues with systems that replicate data between different nodes such as Active Directory. Hyper-V only offered standard checkpoints (formerly called snapshots) prior to Windows 10.

  • Production Checkpoints -- uses Volume Shadow Copy Service or File System Freeze on a Linux virtual machine to create a data-consistent backup of the virtual machine. No snapshot of the virtual machine memory state is taken.

Production checkpoints are selected by default however this can be changed using either Hyper-V manager or PowerShell.

The -CheckpointType parameter of the Set-VM cmdlet allows you to configure the type of checkpoints created by Hyper-V. Possible values are:

  • Disabled. Block creation of checkpoints. 
  • Standard. Create standard checkpoints. 
  • Production. Create production checkpoints if supported by guest operating system. Otherwise, create standard checkpoints.
  • ProductionOnly. Create production checkpoints if supported by guest operating system. Otherwise, the operation fails.

The Checkpoint-VM cmdlet creates a checkpoint of a virtual machine.

Name specifies the name of the virtual machine of which a checkpoint is to be taken.

SnapshotName specifies the name of the checkpoint to be taken. If not provided, a combination of the virtual machine’s name and a current timestamp is used.

Question: 291
Measured Skill: Implement high availability (30–35%)

Your network contains an Active Directory domain named The domain contains two servers named Server1 and Server2 that run Windows Server 2016. Server1 and Server2 have multiple local disks attached.

You need to create a storage pool by using Storage Spaces Direct.

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.)

ASequence: 2, 4, 6
B Sequence: 7, 3, 6
C Sequence: 5, 1, 6
D Sequence: 2, 4, 3
E Sequence: 2, 4, 1
F Sequence: 5, 3, 1

Correct answer: A


Storage Spaces Direct uses industry-standard servers with local-attached drives to create highly available, highly scalable software-defined storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional SAN or NAS arrays. Its converged or hyper-converged architecture radically simplifies procurement and deployment, while features such as caching, storage tiers, and erasure coding, together with the latest hardware innovations such as RDMA networking and NVMe drives, deliver unrivaled efficiency and performance.

Storage Spaces Direct is included in Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, Windows Server 2016 Datacenter, and Windows Server Insider Preview Builds.

For step-by-step instructions to deploy Storage Spaces Direct, see:

Question: 292
Measured Skill: Install Windows Servers in host and compute environments (10–15%)

You have a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2016. You need to install the DNS Server role on Server1.

What should you run?

AThe dnscmd.exe command.
B The Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature cmdlet.
C The dns.exe command.
D The setup.exe command.

Correct answer: B


The Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature cmdlet enables or restores an optional feature in a Windows image.

Use the Online parameter to specify the running operating system on your local computer, or use the Path parameter to specify the location of a mounted Windows image.

The FeatureName parameter specifies the feature to add. You can specify more than one feature in the same package. Separate feature names with a comma.

Question: 293
Measured Skill: Maintain and monitor server environments (10–15%)

You have a server named Server1 that runs Windows Server 2016. The server has an application named App1.

App1 writes entries to the Application event log when errors are encountered. The events have IDs of either 111 or 112.

You need to restart the service whenever either of these events is logged.

What should you do?

AFrom Windows PowerShell, run the Get-SMServerEvent cmdlet and pipe the output to the Start- NetEventSession cmdlet.
B From Event Viewer, create a subscription that has a filter for the event IDs.
C From Event Viewer, use the Create Basic Task Wizard for each event ID.
D From Windows PowerShell, run the Get-Event cmdlet and pipe the output to the Start- NetEventSession cmdlet.

Correct answer: C


You can configure a task to run when an event meeting specified criteria is logged.

To Run a Task in Response to a Given Event

  1. Start Event Viewer.

  2. In the console tree, navigate to the log that contains the event you want to associate with a task.

  3. Right-click the event and select Attach Task to This Event.

  4. Perform each step presented by the Create Basic Task Wizard.
