🧐 Question


Backup and Restore Strategy
You are a database administrator for an organization that uses Azure SQL Database for its operations. The organization has a strict data retention policy and has set up the following backup strategy:

1. Full backups are taken every Sunday at midnight.
2. Differential backups are taken every day at midnight, excluding Sunday.
3. Transaction log backups are taken every hour on the hour.

On Wednesday at 2:30 PM, a failure occurred, and the latest backup files available are: full backup from the previous Sunday, differential backups for Monday and Tuesday, and transaction log backups up to Wednesday 2 PM.

In order to restore the database to the most recent point in time with the minimum amount of data loss, in what order should you restore the backups?
A: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Tuesday, then the differential backup for Wednesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Wednesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

B: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Wednesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Wednesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

C: Restore the full backup, then each differential backup from Monday and Tuesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Wednesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

D: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Monday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Monday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

E: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Tuesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Tuesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.


Resolving Connection Issues
Virtual Machines
You are an Azure Administrator and you manage a Linux VM running an internal web application in Azure. The web application communicates with a database server hosted on another VM in the same Virtual Network (VNet).

Recently, users have reported that the web application is not accessible. After initial troubleshooting, you have identified that the web application VM is unable to establish a connection with the database server VM on port 5432.

You have checked and confirmed the following:

1. Both VMs are up and running without any issues.
2. Both VMs are located in the same VNet and subnet.
3. Both VMs can successfully ping each other.
4. A Network Security Group (NSG) is associated with the subnet, and it has a rule allowing all outbound traffic from the web application VM.
5. The NSG rule for inbound traffic to the database VM on port 5432 has a higher priority than the default deny all rule.

Given the information provided, what could be the most likely reason for the issue and the appropriate resolution?
A: Add a route table to the subnet to enable communication between the VMs.

B: The NSG rule priority for the inbound traffic to the database VM is not set correctly. Adjust the priority to be lower than the default rule.

C: Check if a firewall is enabled on the database VM that might be blocking the port. If so, configure it to allow connections on port 5432.

D: The issue is related to the DNS resolution. Update the DNS settings in the VNet to enable name resolution between the VMs.

E: The web application is not correctly configured to connect to the database. Update the connection string in the web application configuration.


Resolving NSG Configuration Issues
Virtual Machines
You are an Azure Administrator in a software development company. A Linux VM is deployed on Azure, hosting an application server running on port 5000, set to start whenever the VM is booted up.

The VM is associated with a Network Security Group (NSG) having the following inbound security rules:

- Rule 100 (Priority: 100): Allow SSH (port 22) from any source
- Rule 200 (Priority: 200): Allow HTTP (port 80) from any source
- Rule 400 (Priority: 400): Allow TCP traffic on port 5000 from any source
- Rule 300 (Priority: 300): Deny all inbound traffic from any source

The outbound security rules are configured to allow all traffic to any destination.

Internal users have been attempting to connect to the application server on port 5000 but they are consistently facing connection timeouts. You've confirmed the application server is up and running, and you can connect to the server locally on the VM.

What is the most probable cause of the problem and how would you fix it?
A: The inbound rule to allow TCP traffic on port 5000 is conflicting with the rule to allow HTTP on port 80. Remove Rule 200.

B: Rule 300 to deny all inbound traffic is being processed before Rule 400 to allow traffic on port 5000. Modify the priority of Rule 400 to a value less than 300.

C: The application server should be configured to listen on a well-known port instead of port 5000. Change the server settings.

D: The NSG is missing an inbound rule to allow ICMP traffic. Add a new rule with a lower priority.

E: The NSG needs to have an outbound rule specifically allowing traffic to port 5000. Add a new outbound rule.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Advance Networking in Azure Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

What topics are covered in the Advance Networking in Azure Online Test?

  • Azure Networking

    Azure Networking refers to the collection of services in Azure that enables the creation and management of virtual networks, allowing users to connect and isolate their Azure resources securely. It includes features like virtual network peering, network security groups, and virtual network gateways.

  • Virtual Networks

    Azure Virtual Networks provide a way to logically isolate and securely connect Azure resources. They act as your own private network in the cloud, allowing you to control IP address ranges, subnets, and security policies. Virtual networks are the foundation for creating multi-tier applications and establishing communication between resources.

  • Subnets

    Subnets are a way to partition a virtual network into smaller address spaces. They allow you to further segment and organize resources within a virtual network, providing control over network traffic and network security. Subnets are used to group similar resources or isolate specific types of traffic.

  • Network Security Groups

    Azure Network Security Groups (NSGs) provide granular network security control for Azure resources. They act as a basic form of firewall, allowing you to define inbound and outbound traffic rules based on protocols, ports, and source/destination IP addresses. NSGs help to secure virtual networks and protect resources from unauthorized access.

  • Azure Load Balancer

    Azure Load Balancer is a traffic distribution service that distributes incoming network traffic across multiple resources, such as virtual machines, based on load balancing rules. It helps to improve availability and scale applications by evenly distributing traffic and preventing overload on individual resources.

  • Azure Application Gateway

    Azure Application Gateway is a layer 7 load balancer that provides application-level routing and load balancing services. It can be used to optimize and secure web traffic to your applications by performing tasks like SSL termination, URL-based routing, and cookie-based session affinity.

  • Azure Traffic Manager

    Azure Traffic Manager is a DNS-based traffic load balancer that distributes incoming traffic across multiple endpoints, such as Azure web apps, based on routing methods. It helps to improve availability and performance by directing users to the closest or healthiest endpoint based on their geographic location or performance measurement.

  • Azure VPN Gateway

    Azure VPN Gateway is a virtual network gateway that provides a secure connection between your on-premises network and Azure virtual networks. It enables you to establish a site-to-site or point-to-site VPN tunnel, extending your on-premises network to the Azure cloud securely and privately.

  • Azure ExpressRoute

    Azure ExpressRoute is a private connectivity option that allows you to establish dedicated connections between your on-premises network and Azure data centers. It provides a more reliable and low-latency connection compared to a typical internet-based connection, enabling faster data transfer and seamless hybrid cloud integration.

  • Azure DNS

    Azure DNS is a hosting service for DNS domains. It allows you to manage and resolve domain names using the same scalable and highly available infrastructure that powers Azure cloud services. Azure DNS provides high-performance, reliable, and secure DNS resolution for your applications and services.

  • Azure Firewall

    Azure Firewall is a managed network security service that provides a stateful firewall-as-a-service for Azure virtual networks. It filters network traffic using application and network layer rules, allowing you to define fine-grained access control, routing, and network segmentation policies. Azure Firewall helps to protect your Azure resources from unauthorized access and threats.

  • Azure Network Watcher

    Azure Network Watcher is a monitoring and diagnostic service that provides insights into the health, performance, and security of Azure virtual networks. It allows you to monitor network traffic, troubleshoot connectivity issues, and gain visibility into network topology and metrics. Azure Network Watcher helps to ensure the reliability and optimal performance of your virtual networks.
