iso file for the affected virtual machine?

An administrator is updating a program running on a virtual machine. The update file has been downloaded as an .iso file and placed on a shared NFS datastore. An attempt to mount the .iso file to the virtual machine fails, but subsequent testing shows that the .iso file can be mounted to a virtual machine running on another ESXi 5.x host.

Which step can be taken to enable access to the .iso file for the affected virtual machine?

A.
Reboot all ESXi hosts in the cluster where the affected virtual machine is running.

B.
Refresh all datastores on the ESXi host running the affected VM.

C.
Rescan all datastores on the ESXi host running the affected VM.

D.
Unmount the volume from the ESXi host running the affected VM, and then add as a new datastore.

    The more I read these test questions, I more I wonder… are we being tested for our reading skill and webster dictionary definitions, or are we being tested for our VMware knowledge to actually run a Virtual Infrastructure. Why can’t they write these question with less ambiguity. Are they here to Trick you and to Test your knowledge. I wonder!

      I am wondering the same thing. My test is scheduled for tomorrow morning and I have felt pretty good about my studies until I came across this practice test.

    It’s the latter. I like the “no access” question as an example. A would be correct, except that it uses the term “usage” instead of “access”. Limiting someone’s usage of the system is near comparable in my opinion. Instead, they are just testing to see if you’re paying attention during the test.

    What we need to do is be presented with an environment and have someone say, “Setup a 5.1 environment with these administrators, these servers, these performance levels, etc. You have 90 minutes.” At that point you install or upgrade ESXi hosts, install or upgrade vCenter, configure fiber channel or iSCSI or NFS, configure AD access and lock it down, import some VMs, use resource pools, limits, or whatever. If you can do all that, you’re certified because it will do a far better job of proving that you know what it is you’re doing than these questions do.
