Question 1

An administrator needs to configure a backup job that dynamically adds new VMware hosted SQL servers. How can this be accomplished?



Answer : A

Creating a backup job based on vSphere tags allows for dynamic addition of new VMware hosted SQL servers. When new VMs are tagged appropriately in vSphere, they are automatically included in the backup job, ensuring all relevant SQL servers are backed up without manual intervention. Reference: Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, Veeam Dynamic Backup Job Configuration Guide


Question 2

The organization has a strategy to copy its VM and Agent backups to the alternate site. The backup administrator has requested to implement a similar backup copy strategy for unstructured data backups with 10 additional days of retention.

Which configuration is correct?



Answer : C

When implementing a backup copy strategy for unstructured data backups with additional retention, a File Share Copy job is the correct configuration. This type of job is designed to copy backups of file shares to a secondary location, which in this case would be the alternate site. It allows for the setting of additional retention days beyond the original backup retention policy. Reference:

Question 3

A backup of a Windows VM running on a VMware cluster has been created. In which scenario can the Quick Rollback option be used during a Full VM Restore of the VM?



Answer : D

The Quick Rollback feature can be used during a Full VM Restore to restore only the changed blocks of data since the last backup. This is typically used when the issues are minor and have been caused by VM guest user error, rather than full-scale data corruption or migrations to a different virtualization host. Quick Rollback can efficiently restore the VM to its previous state without the need to transfer the entire VM's data. Reference:

Question 4

An engineer needs to back up their VMware VMs running on a Nimble Array. The engineer has checked ''Enable backup from storage snapshots'' when creating the job. When the backup runs, snapshots are not triggered on the Nimble Array.

Which additional step must be performed?



Answer : B

To enable backup from storage snapshots with a Nimble Array, it is necessary to add the storage system to the Veeam Backup & Replication console's Storage Infrastructure. This allows Veeam to interact with the Nimble Array and orchestrate the creation of storage snapshots, which can then be used for backups. Simply enabling the backup from storage snapshots option in the job is not enough; the array itself must be integrated into the Veeam infrastructure. Reference:

Question 5

An engineer has used a Linux Hardened Repository as the backup repository. The immutability period is set to 60 days.

The backup settings are:

Retention Policy: 14 days

GFS Weekly full backup: 1 week

GFS Monthly full backup: 6 months

If a full backup is created on 27th May 2023 with a monthly GFS flag, when will this restore point be automatically deleted?



Answer : C

The immutability period set on a Linux Hardened Repository prevents deletion of backup files for the duration of the immutability period. In this case, it is set to 60 days. However, the GFS (Grandfather-Father-Son) retention policy specifies that a monthly full backup is to be kept for 6 months. Since the full backup was created on 27th May 2023 and flagged as a monthly GFS backup, it will be retained for 6 months irrespective of the retention policy or the immutability setting. Hence, the restore point will be automatically deleted after 6 months, which would be on the 28th of November 2023. Reference:

Question 6

A company has an RPO set at 4 hours and values data protection and disaster recovery. A disaster occurs on June 12, 2023 at 10:00 AM.

Which restore point gives the company the best RPO?



Answer : A

Given the company has an RPO set at 4 hours, the restore point that gives the best RPO is the one closest to the time of the disaster without going over the disaster's timestamp. Since the disaster occurred on June 12, 2023, at 10:00 AM, the restore point at June 12, 2023, 9:30 AM would be the most recent one within the RPO threshold. This restore point minimizes data loss and provides the most current data before the disaster. Reference:

Question 7

On Monday, a backup administrator found out that some backup jobs were missing from a configuration. They want to roll back the configuration database to Friday's state. Which configuration restore mode should be used?



Answer : C

To roll back the configuration database to Friday's state, the backup administrator should use the 'Restore' mode available in Veeam Backup & Replication. This mode allows for the entire configuration backup to be restored, which includes the job settings and history, and brings the configuration database back to the state it was in at the time of the backup.
