A vSphere administrator needs to increase the capacity of an existing Storage Distributed

Resource Scheduler (SDRS) datastore cluster. The storage administrator has provisioned two

new NFS datastores to be added to the cluster.

The vSphere administrator receives an error message, preventing the administrator from adding

the newly provisioned datastores to the cluster.

What is the likely reason that the action failed?


Options are :

Options are :

  • The virtual machine is in a powered on state. (Correct)
  • There is not enough disk space on the destination for the OVF.
  • The administrator's account does not have the correct privileges.
