Question No : 2
Which network authentication protocol is supported on the IBM Storwize V7000 Unified storage system, is used for client/server applications, and provides symmetric key cryptography?
To provide heterogeneous file sharing for Unix and Windows, the Storwize V7000 Unified system must support authentication methods for Unix and Windows. The Storwize V7000Unified system uses Windows authentication for incoming CIFS connections and Unix authentication for incoming NFS, HTTP, SFTP and SCP connections.
Kerberos is a network authentication protocol for client/server applications that uses symmetric key cryptography.
Note: User password in clear text format is never sent over a network; the Kerberos server grants a ticket to the client for a short span of time. This ticket is used while communicating with the server to obtain access to the service, such as a file server. The Windows based authentication is based on Kerberos. MIT Kerberos is a free implementation of the Kerberos protocol, which is provided by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Question No : 6
A customer wants to create file shares for its Windows clients. The customer is interested in an IBM Storwize V7000 Unified.
Which protocol should the customer use for file-sharing?
Using the NFS protocol, you can transfer files between computers running Windows and other nonWindows operating systems, such as Linux or UNIX.
Note: Shares and exports can be managed through the GUI or CLI by Storwize V7000 Unified administrative users that have a user role definition that is authorized to perform share and export
A share or export results from making a disk space accessible through the protocols specified during its creation. HTTP, SCP, FTP, CIFS and NFS shares and exports can be created, provided that thecorresponding protocol is enabled for the system . Shares and exports can only be created for data that is stored in the GPFS file system of the Storwize V7000 Unified system. Non-GPFS file systemcontent cannot be shared or exported.

A customer is investigating replicating data between IBM Storwize V7000 for DR purposes and has made the following calculations to help determine the correct capacity for the intersite link.
Customer formula used
Amount of data replicated within 24 hours, multiplied by 4 (to allow for peaks and re-sync), translated into bit rate over the 24-hour period.
-2GB of data per day
-2GB * 4 =8GB of data
-8GB* 8 bits= 64GB I 86400 seconds
-68,719,476,736 I 86400 = 795,364 bits/second bandwidth
The customer has advised that the working day is 8 hours.
What is the status of the calculations?
The calculation is correct for a 24 hour workday, but as the workday is only 8 hours, the calculation is off by a factor 3.
Question No : 14
Where is the master encryption key supplied for an IBM Storwize V7000 at power on?
The master keys are stored on USB sticks at the time of array creation.
This encryption support means drives themselves can be protect from malicious removal - and if drives fail and need to be replaced you can be sure that nobody can read the data from the failed drives.
