Your company has a private cloud that is managed by using a System Center 2012 infrastructure. The network contains seven servers. The servers are configured as shown in the following table.
You need to recommend a solution to apply Windows updates to the virtualization hosts. The solution must meet the following requirements:
->Approve Windows updates from the VMM Administrator Console.
->Store information about Windows update installations in Configuration Manager reports.
What should you do first?
From the VMM Administrator Console, add Server6 as a host server, and then install the Configuration Manager agent on Server1.
On Server7, install Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), and then install the Configuration Manager agent on Server1.
On Server7, install Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), and then install the Configuration Manager agent on all of the virtualization hosts.
From the VMM Administrator Console, add Server6 as an update server, and then install the Configuration Manager agent on all of the virtualization hosts.
Explanation: The requirements need a WSUS server. Server 7 is the most appropriate server to install WSUS.
A configuration manager agent is required to store information about Windows update
installation in the Configuration Manager reports. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712312.aspx Step 1: Install and Configure a Software Update Point
The software update point is required on the central administration site and primary sites to enable software updates compliance assessment and to deploy software updates to clients.
The software update point is optional on secondary sites.
The software update point site system role must be created on a server that has WSUS installed.
The software update point interacts with the WSUS services to configure software update settings and request synchronization of software updates metadata.
When you have a Configuration Manager hierarchy, install and configure the software update point on the central administration site first, then on child primary sites, and then optionally on secondary sites.
When you have a stand-alone primary site (no central administration site), install and configure the software update point on the primary site first, and then optionally on secondary sites.
Some settings are only available when you configure the software update point on a central administration site, or stand-alone primary site, and there are different options that you must consider depending on where the software update point is installed.

Question No: 169 – (Topic 8)
Your company has a private cloud that is managed by using a System Center 2012 Operations Manager infrastructure.
The network contains an Active Directory forest named adatum.com. Operations Manager monitors a server named Operations1.
Operations1 has a computer account in an organizational unit (OU) name ServerOU1. You create a group named GP1 as shown in the exhibit. (Click the Exhibit button.)
You create a rule named OMRule1 that generates an alert when an error is added to the Application log.
You target OMRule1 to GP1.
You discover that alerts fail to be generated when errors are added to the Application log on Operations1.
You need to ensure that an alert is generated when an error is added to the Application log on Operations1.
What should you modify?
the target of OMRulel1
the dynamic membership of GP1
the category of OMRule1
the explicit membership of GP1
Answer: B Explanation:
How does a rule get to an agent?
For any particular rule/monitor, OpsMgr will enumerate all instances of the target class and apply the rule to each.
If there are no instances of the target class on a particular agent, then the rule will do nothing.
It#39;s that simple.
If I can#39;t target groups, why are they listed when I select a target for a rule? Groups are classes just like any other.
They#39;re singleton classes where the class and the instance are one and the same, but they are classes nonetheless which is why they show up in the list with all other classes.
There are really very few circumstances where you will target a rule at a group though. What if I do target a group?
You can apply a rule/monitor directly to a group, but it will execute against the group object itself.
OpsMgr will not enumerate members of the group and apply the rule to each.
Any rules targeted at groups will actually operate on the Root Management Server since groups have no host and unhosted objects are managed by the RMS.
How do I target some group of objects then?
To the specific question of how to get a particular rule/monitor to a subset of components, you have two basic options.
Let#39;s say for example, you have a particular subset of web sites that you need a particular rule to apply.
You could target that rule at the IIS 2003 Web Site class for example, but that would apply the rule to all instances of that class.
It would probably apply to sites that you didn#39;t want.
Option 1 would be to create a new class and target the rule at the class.
In the case of an IIS site, this would mean that you would need to go to the Authoring
Console or raw XML and create a new class and discovery.
That#39;s a more advanced solution that most customers will do and probably overkill anyway. Option 2 is the create a rule target at the whole class and disable it.
Create a group with the sites you want and create an override for that group to enable your rule.
This might sound like a workaround, but it#39;s a completely valid solution. How do I know if I#39;m selecting the right target?
The easiest method to validate you are using a target that actually has instances is to use the Discovered
Inventory view in the Operations Console prior to creating your rule/monitor.
In the Actions pane is an option called quot;Change target type…quot; that will bring up the same Select a Target Type dialog box that you see when you select the target for a rule/monitor. This view will list all instances of the target class you select.
You can validate which agents have an instance of that class and how many instances each has.
If there are no instances listed, then the rule isn#39;t going to do anything.
If there are instances, then you not only be confident that the rule/monitor will execute on the agent, but you can also view the properties of the instance that will be accessible to any rules/monitors targeted at it.

Operations Manager Dynamic Group Examples
In Operations Manager, groups are logical collections of objects, such as Windows-based computers, hard disks, or instances of Microsoft SQL Server.
Groups are populated by explicitly adding objects to the group or dynamically according to criteria you set.
For more information on the use of groups, see Creating and Managing Groups in the Operations Guide.
This article provides example of group definitions.
The examples describe the items to select in the Query Builder and the resulting formula:

Your network contains a System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager deployment.
You plan to create priority-based service level objectives (SLOs) for all work item types. The priorities will be assigned automatically based on the urgency and the impact of a work item.
You need to identify how to implement the priorities for each work item.
What should you identify? In the table below, identify which work items can be implemented by using the work item settings or a custom workflow and which work items can be implemented only by using a custom workflow. Make only one selection in each row.
Topic 9, Contoso, Ltd (B) Overview
Contoso, Ltd. is a manufacturing company.
Contoso has a main office and six branch offices. The main office is located in Toronto. The branch offices are located in New York, Seattle, Miami, Montreal, Los Angeles, and Vancouver.
Active Directory Environment
The network contains an Active Directory forest named contoso.com. The forest contains a child domain for each office.
Active Directory currently contains 7,500 user accounts and 15,000 computer accounts.
All servers are located in a data center in Toronto. The data center contains multiple subnets that are separated by firewalls.
The Toronto data center contains a cluster that runs Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Service Pack 1 (SP1).
Four servers are unused and are being considered as potential Hyper-V hosts. The servers are configured as shown in the following table.
All of the servers being considered as potential Hyper-V hosts have both locally attached storage and access to a SAN.
Help Desk Environment
Contoso uses a help desk ticketing system that was developed in-house. Fifty help desk agents have access to the ticketing system.
The ticketing system currently tracks:
->An average of two new incidents per month, per client computer
->An average of 2,000 change requests per month
Disaster Recovery Environment
Contoso uses a third-party backup solution. Backups are scheduled for the servers in the Seattle office as follows:
->The daily incremental backups total 10 GB.
->The total size of data to back up is 100 GB.
->Backed up data is retained for 10 business days.
The original developers of the help desk ticketing system are no longer employed by Contoso and maintenance of the system is becoming an issue.
Contoso plans to move the IT infrastructure to a private cloud.
Whenever possible, hardware and software costs must be minimized.
Contoso plans to open a small office in Beijing. System Center 2012 App Controller will be used to manage applications. The display names of the applications will be in Simplified Chinese Pinyin IME.
New physical servers will be deployed by using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager from a server named Server5. Server5 will also be a PXE service point.
The current backup solution will be replaced with System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager (DPM).
A public key infrastructure (PKI) will be deployed to issue and manage certificates. The PKI deployment must be made as secure as possible.
Hardware load balancers will be deployed for use in the deployment of private cloud services.
Contoso plans to implement a cloud solution that meets the following requirements:
->Stores all virtual machines on the SAN only.
->Uses SAN copy to provision the virtual machines.
->Provides the ability to manage the resolution of incidents.
->Contains managed virtual machines across both private and public clouds.
->Provides the ability to customize the settings of management packs provided by Microsoft.
->Collects security events from all of the servers running in the private cloud and provides centralized reporting on the events.
A new application named App1 will be deployed to the private cloud. App1 is a three-tier application that contains the following components:
->A front-end tier that runs a web server. The tier must be highly available and
capable of being quickly scaled out if required.
->A middle tier that runs an application server.
->A back-end tier that runs a database.
An application named App2 will be deployed to the public cloud. Users will be authenticated by using the on-premises Active Directory. The users must be able to access App2 without being prompted for authentication again.
