Your company has three data centers located in New York, Los Angeles and Paris. You deploy a System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) infrastructure. The VMM infrastructure contains 2,000 virtual machines deployed on 200 Hyper-V hosts. The network contains a server named DPM1 that has System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager (DPM) installed. You need to recommend a solution for the infrastructure to meet the following requirements:
– Automatically backup and restore Virtual machines by using workflows.
– Automatically backup and restore system states by using workflows.
What should you include in the recommendation? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)
A. Deploy System Center 2012 Orchestrator.
B. Install the Integration Pack for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).
C. Install the Integration Pack for System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM).
D. Deploy System Center 2012 Operations Manager.
E. Deploy System Center 2012 Service Manager.
System Center 2012 Orchestrator is a Runbook Automation (RBA) tool, also known as an IT Process Automation (ITPA) tool.
As a practical example, a user could initiate an Orchestrator (A) runbook by requesting a service in a self-service portal. The runbook would then await approval by IT. Once approved, it would then automatically provision the necessary virtual machines through System Center Virtual Machine Manager (B), deploy the required software via Configuration Manager, arrange backup through System Center Data Protection Manager and integrate monitoring with a third-party system.

B: In System Center 2012 ?Service Manager, there are two types of connectors for System Center Operations Manager. You use the first type of connector, the alert connector, to automatically generate incidents that are based on Operations Manager alerts. You use the second type of connector, the configuration item (CI) connector, to import discovered objects from Operations Manager as configuration items into the Service Manager database.
* You must import some System Center Operations Manager management packs into Service Manager. When you install Service Manager, a set of System Center Operations Manager management packs for common objects and the required Windows PowerShell scripts are copied to your Service Manager installation folder.
* For the Operations Manager CI connector to function correctly, you have to import a set of management packs into Service Manager.

You have a System Center 2012 infrastructure that contains the following:
– Service Manager
– Virtual Machine Manager(VMM)
The corporate compliance policy states that the following tasks must be audited:
– When an administrator updates a service.
– When a user requests a change to a service.
– When an administrator approves a change to a service.
You need to recommend a solution that meets the requirements of the compliance policy.
Which portal should you include in the recommendation?
A. the App Controller portal
B. the Service Manager Self-Service Portal
C. the Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal (VMMSSP)

Your network contains an Active Directory forest named contoso.com. The forest contains a System Center 2012 Operations Manager infrastructure.
Your company, named Contoso Ltd., has a partner company named A. Datum Corporation. The A. Datum network contains an Active Directory forest named adatum.com. Adatum.com does not have any trusts. A firewaII exists between the A. Datum network and the Contoso network. You configure conditional forwarding on all of the DNS servers to resolve names across the forests.
You plan to configure Operations Manager to monitor client computers in both of the forests. You need to recommend changes to the infrastructure to monitor the client computers in both of the forests.
What should you include in the recommendation? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)
A. Allow TCP port 5723 on the firewall.
B. Deploy a gateway server to adatum.com.
C. Create a DNS zone replica of adatum.com.
D. Allow TCP port 5986 on the firewall.
E. Create a DNS zone replica of contoso.com.
F. Deploy a gateway server to contoso.com.
A: Gateway, System Center Management service, 5723/TCP
B: if there is a firewall between the agents and management servers, multiple authorized endpoints must be defined and maintained in the firewall rules to allow communication between them.
To reduce this administrative overhead, Operations Manager has a server role called the gateway server. Gateway servers are located within the trust boundary of the agents and can participate in the mandatory mutual authentication. Because they lie within the same trust boundary as the agents, the Kerberos V5 protocol for Active Directory is used between the agents and the gateway server. Each agent then communicates only with the gateway servers that it is aware of. The gateway servers communicate with the management servers.
