(b) Two
(c) Three
(d) Four

Correct Answer – (c)

3) What is the difference in how checkpoints are chosen in a Move and Failover?

(b) Ina Move, any checkpoint in the Journal can be selected, whereas in a Failover the latest recorded checkpoint is used.
(c) There is no difference; the user selects the checkpoint for in both operations.
(d) There is no difference; the latest recorded checkpoint is used for both operations.

Correct Answer – (a)

4) Why is the Journal stored on the recovery/ target site?

(a) To ensure you always have an up-to-date copy of your data if your production site goes down.
(b) To enable Long-Term Retention and support Compliance use cases.
(c) To ensure you can use the most cost-effective storage available.
(d) To lessen the performance impact of snapshots on the production site.

Correct Answer – (a)

5) Your organization has requested that you generate documentation to confirm that a VPG is able to failover to the target site successfully. Which of the following would be the best practice for providing them with the requested information?

(a) Use the Failover operation, check the VM at the target site, roll back the operation, and provide the organization the logs.
(b) Use the Failover Test operation, check the VM(s) spun up successfully at the target site, stop the test, and provide the organization with the test report.
(c) Use the Failover operation, manually commit the operation, and provide the organization with the logs.
(d) Use the Failover Test operation, record a successful test, manually delete the testing VMs at the target site, and provide the organization with the test report.

Correct Answer – (b)

6) When configuring a failover test network, what is Zerto’s recommend best practice?
