A. Disable high availability.
B. Export the virtual machines.
C. Place the host in maintenance mode.
D. Copy the virtual machines to another host.
Scenario: An administrator is unable to connect to a resource pool in a XenServer environment in
which high availability is enabled. The administrator discovers that the host is unreachable. What
does the administrator need to do to recover the host?

C. Run the emergency-ha-disable command, then once the host is restarted, run the
D. Run the host-evacuate command, then restart the host and run the
pool-emergency-transition-to- master command.
Scenario: In an environment with high availability enabled, an administrator discovered that a host is
unreachable in a XenServer pool. The administrator disabled high availability in order to make the
host reachable. Which xe CLI command can the administrator run to make the host reachable again?

B. A virtual machine that is duplicated using the full copy method may impact disk performance.
C. A virtual machine that is duplicated using the fast cloned method may impact disk performance.
D. A template created on local storage can be duplicated by using the full copy method by any
host in the pool.
