Exam Question 


The network team has deployed a VM with Wireshark installed.  The intent is to be able to create SPAN sessions to assist in troubleshooting networking issues.


Configure the VM Net_TS to be a target for SPAN sessions, using Nutanix best practices and recommendations.


Note: Do not power on the VM.


Setup: A VM named Net_TS exists on the cluster.


What we are looking for is two things that need to be done to the VM to prepare it for the task.  You can assume any changes to the host or host networking will be performed at a later time.


Fun fact: Since you will not need to power on the virtual machine to perform the tasks, in the actual exam environment the VM would have no OS installed and might not even have a disk attached.


Correct Answer 

For Step 1: Set the Net_TS VM to be an Agent VM

For Step 2: Create a SPAN destination VNIC on the VM with acli vm.nic_create Net_TS type=kSpanDestinationNic
