Question No : 10
What precautions must you take to ensure that VCS jeopardy protection is allowed to
A. VCS should be configured to only seed the cluster when a majority of servers are running to prevent a possible split-brain condition if theheartbeat links between two or more servers are down.
B. VCS should be configured to deploy disk heartbeats to protect the cluster in the event of a network failure impacting one or more heartbeatlinks
C. VCS heartbeat links should be physically and logically independent, including having separate network controllers, cables, switches and VLANs(if deployed) for each of the heartbeat links
