In this post we will continue covering the storage objective from the blueprint. The following are the blueprint objective: NFS: Differentiate NFS 3.x and 4.1 capabilities Connect an NFS 4.1 datastore using Kerberos RDM: Differentiate Physical Mode RDMs and Virtual Mode RDMs Create a Virtual/Physical Mode RDM Configure Bus Sharing Configure Multi-writer locking SIOC: (i skipped some parts of the blue print because i didn't study the marital yet such as "Differentiate between SIOC and Dynamic Queue Depth Throttling features") Describe the benefits of SIOC Enable and configure SIOC Configure/Manage SIOC Monitor SIOC   NFSv3 and NFS4.1: VMware support both NFS protocols here are the differences between the two: NFSv3: Traffic is unencrypted Use only one TCP connection for I/O. ESXi has No support for delegate user functionality Supports hardware acceleration and…
