Chapter 3: Configuring ESX/ESXi Storage > Answers to Review Questions

Answers to Review Questions

1. B, E. Any time you need to modify data on the NFS datastore, you should not check the Read-Only box. Further, if the NFS server is serving the datastore as read only (export file properties, for example), you should check the Read-Only box.

2. B, C. Setting a mask on the SAN and setting a mask on an ESX server via the vCLI are both techniques for masking SAN LUNs in a vSphere 4.0 ESX environment.

3. D. The administrator can choose between a NAS appliance and a Linux NFS server. Ethernet network infrastructure and a virtual switch are both necessary components of an NFS data storage network on an ESX server. There is no need for, and the VMkernel will not use, the TOE engine in an NFS storage network (a TOE engine is used in an iSCSI environment with a hardware initiator).
