    Actually it A, B and C.

    In the Network Dialog you can chnage the Default (E1000) adapter to any of the others….
    C depends on the DiskType (VMFS, NFS). If you have NFS you can NOT select anything, with VMFS you can select any of the normal 3 methodes
    (Check in real install)

  2. Dave Murray says:

    For a “Typical” configuration, verify that you have the following information:
    – Virtual machine name and inventory location.
    – Location in which to place the virtual machine (cluster, host, resource pool).
    – Datastore on which to store the virtual machine’s files. (B)
    – Guest operating system and version.
    – Parameters for the virtual disk size and provisioning settings. (C)

    In addition to the information for a Typical configuration, for a “Custom” configuration, verify that you have
    the following information:
    – Virtual machine version.
    – Number of CPUs and memory size. (D)
    – Number of NICs, network to connect to, and network adapter types. (A)
    – SCSI controller type.
    – Disk type (new disk, existing disk, RDM, or no disk).

      The answer is B & C only.

      I just had this question on my exam and verified the answer here:
      http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/topic/com.vmware.ICbase/PDF/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-50-virtual-machine-admin-guide.pdf
      See the bottom of page 32 and the top of page 33.

      Prerequisites – For a Typical configuration, verify that you have the following information:
      * Virtual machine name and inventory location.
      * Location in which to place the virtual machine (cluster, host, resource pool).
      B* Datastore on which to store the virtual machine’s files.
      * Guest operating system and version.
      D* Parameters for the virtual disk size and PROVISIONING settings.

      In addition to the information for a Typical configuration, for a Custom configuration, verify that you have the following information:
      * Virtual machine version.
      D* Number of CPUs and memory size.
      A* Number of NICs, network to connect to, and network adapter types.
      * SCSI controller type.
      * Disk type (new disk, existing disk, RDM, or no disk).

    I agree A C
    “Typical” configuration
    Datastore on which to store the virtual machine’s files. look! are FILES not disks

  4. vmfan says:

    It should be A & C.

    You get to select the Network Adapter type in Typical Config. And B is incorrect as it says “virtual machine DISKS”, its not only the disks it stored, but all the files consist of vm machine config file(.vmx) Log files (.log)NvRam (*.nvram), etc.

    So I agree with shuo.

    Typical option on Vmware workstation gives this option. It means this questing is belongs to vmware workstation options.
