Sample Exam Questions 2: AZ-300: Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies
You have an Active Directory forest named contoso.com.
You install and configure Azure AD Connect to use password hash synchronization as the single sign-on (SSO) method. Staging mode is enabled. You review the synchronization results and discover that the Synchronization Service Manager does not display any sync jobs.
You need to ensure that the synchronization completes successfully.
What should you do?
- From Azure PowerShell, run Start-AdSyncSyncCycle–PolicyTypeInitial.
B. Run AzureAD Connect and set the SSO method to Pass-through Authentication.
- From Synchronization Service Manager, run a full import.
D. Run Azure AD Connect and disable staging mode.
Correct Answer: D
In staging mode, the server is active for import and synchronization, but it does not run any exports. A server in staging mode is not running password sync or password writeback, even if you selected these features during installation. When you disable staging mode, the server starts exporting, enables password sync, and enables password writeback.
You have an Azure subscription that contains 100 virtual machines. You regularly create and delete virtual machines.
You need to identify unattached disks that can be deleted. What should you do?
A. From Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer, view the Account Management properties.
B. From Azure Cost Management, create a Cost Management report.
C. From the Azure portal, configure the Advisor recommendations.
D. From Azure Cost Management, open the Optimizer tab and create a report.
Correct Answer: D
You can find unused disks in the Azure Storage Explorer console. Once you drill down to the Blob containers under a storage account, you can see the lease state of the residing VHD (the lease state determines if the VHD is being used by any resource) and the VM to which it is leased out. If you find that the lease state and the VM fields are blank, it means that the VHD in question is unused.
Note: The Managed By property stores the Id of the VM to which Managed Disk is attached to. If the ManagedBy property is $null then it means that the Managed Disk is not attached to a VM.
You have an Azure subscription that contains 10 virtual machines.
You need to ensure that you receive an email message when any virtual machines are powered off, restarted, or deallocated.
What is the minimum number of rules and action groups that you require?
A. three rules and three action groups
B. one rule and one action group
C. three rules and one action group
D. one rule and three action groups
Correct Answer: C
We need a separate rule for each condition. We also need a separate action group for each action type that we want to fire when the rule is met.
In this scenario we have three conditions (when any virtual machines are powered off, restarted, or deallocated) and one action type (you are sent an email message).
