VCP-NV: A Handful of Test Questions to Try Out

by admin

This is a first for this site. I thought I’d add a new feature and have a try at writing some test questions with the VCP-NV in mind. So, please have a go and send me any feedback!

The following 10 questions are all based around NSX and networking concepts, with a view to helping VCP-NV exam preparation.

What type of Virtual Switch is shared across ESXi hosts?


NSX has a number of features. Select all that apply. NSX has:


Which NSX component needs to be deployed first?


Select the correct answer:


NSX participates in Spanning Tree?


Which port is used to communicate between vCenter and NSX Manager?


Which link aggregation method is used in NSX?


What protocol is used to map MAC addresses to IP addresses?



What is the purpose of Spanning Tree?



ARP is a protocol that operates in which layer of the network stack?

Thank you so much for this practice exam.

Just started preparing for the VCP-NV exam and having a hard time finding any info/practice exams.

Your exam and your excellent web site has helped me get started on my VMware NSX journey.

Coming from a all Cisco world (past 10+ years), finding it difficult to grasp the notion of virtual networks.

What I would like to see on VMware’s web-site is a practical hands-on for a home lab to setup using my old Cisco routers, switches and old PC’s……..that would really help us Cisco folks to get ingrained in this Virtual network stuff.

Thank you.

The practice quiz was fun and clearly written. You should add more questions if you have some free time. They’re excellent for verifying knowledge. Thanks for helping us out with the exam study guide 🙂
