Which three things can be done to allow more virtual machines to be deployed into the cluster from this templa

ACME Junkmail Incorporated has been utilizing templates in their environment. They are running a 10-node ESXi 5.x Cluster and DRS has not been configured. Several virtual machines have been deployed from this template and successfully powered on, but a newly deployed virtual machine will not power on. There appear to be adequate CPU and Memory resources available on the host.

Which three things can be done to allow more virtual machines to be deployed into the cluster from this template? (Choose three.)

A.
Select a different datastore for the virtual machine

B.
Move the swap file to a different location

C.
Deploy the virtual machine to a different host using the same datastore

D.
Enable DRS on the cluster to balance the virtual machine load out across hosts

E.
Increase the virtual machine memory reservation

    The constrain here seems to be “Storage” and not CPU/Memory. So that takes (D) out. Moving swap file to a different location/data-store can be one of the answers so (B) is one of the answers. Increasing VM memory reservation will reduce swap file size and therefore saves data-store space, so (E) can be another correct answer. Select a different data-store is also a good answer, so (A) can be correct. Using a different VM but same data-store won’t address the problem, so (C) doesn’t look like a correct answer. So, best answers are A, B & E
