What are three possible causes of the increased wait time?

You are migrating SAP to Azure. The ASCS application servers are in one Azure zone, and the SAP database server in in a different Azure zone. ASCS/ERS is configured for high availability.

During performance testing, you discover increased response times in Azure, even though the Azure environment has better computer and memory configurations than the on-premises environment.

During the initial analysis, you discover an increased wait time for Enqueue.

What are three possible causes of the increased wait time? Each correct answer presents a complete solution. NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
A . a missing Enqueue profile
B. disk I/O during Enqueue backup operations
C. misconfigured load balancer rules and health check probes for Enqueue and ASCS
D. active Enqueue replication
E. network latency between the database server and the SAP application servers

Answer: C,D,E


E: The network latency across Availability Zones is not the same in all Azure regions. In some cases, you can deploy and run the SAP application layer across different zones because the network latency from one zone to the active DBMS VM is acceptable. But in some Azure regions, the latency between the active DBMS VM and the SAP application instance, when deployed in different zones, might not be acceptable for SAP business processes.


What should you use?

You are deploying an SAP production landscape to Azure.

Your company’s chief information security officer (CISO) requires that the SAP deployment complies with ISO 27001.

You need to generate a compliance report for ISO 27001.

What should you use?
A . Azure Security Center
B. Azure Log Analytics
C. Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)
D. Azure Monitor

Answer: A


In the Azure Security Center regulatory compliance blade, you can get an overview of key portions of your compliance posture with respect to a set of supported standards. Currently supported standards are Azure CIS, PCI DSS 3.2, ISO 27001, and SOC TSP.

Which four actions should you perform in sequence?


You have an SAP environment on Azure.

You use Azure Site Recovery to protect an SAP production landscape.

You need to validate whether you can recover the landscape in the event of a failure. The solution must minimize the impact on the landscape.

Which four actions should you perform in sequence? To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of actions to the answer area and arrange them in the correct order.



Step 1: Create a virtual network…

We recommended that for test failover, you choose a network that’s isolated from the production recovery site network specific in the Compute and Network settings for each VM. By default, when you create an Azure virtual network, it is isolated from other networks.

The test network should mimic your production network:

The test network should have same number of subnets as your production network.

Subnets should have the same names.

The test network should use the same IP address range.

Step 2: Add a public IP address…

Because Site Recovery does not replicate the cloud witness, we recommend that you deploy the cloud witness in the disaster recovery region.

Step 3: Shut down production virtual machines

Make sure that the primary VM is shut down when you run the test failover. Otherwise there will be two VMs with the same identity, running in the same network at the same time.

This can lead to unexpected consequences.

Step 4: Select Test failover from the Recovery Plans blade


What should you configure?

You plan to deploy an SAP landscape that will have virtual machines deployed to multiple Azure regions.

You need to ensure that the virtual machines can communicate across the regions.

What should you configure?
A . virtual network peering in Azure
B. local network gateways
C. Azure Bastion hosts
D. Azure Relay

Answer: A


Depending on the rules and restrictions you want to apply between the different virtual networks hosting VMs of different SAP systems, you should peer those virtual network

Note: Virtual network peering enables you to seamlessly connect two or more Virtual Networks in Azure. The virtual networks appear as one for connectivity purposes. The traffic between virtual machines in peered virtual networks uses the Microsoft backbone infrastructure. Like traffic between virtual machines in the same network, traffic is routed through Microsoft’s private network only.

Azure supports the following types of peering:

Virtual network peering: Connect virtual networks within the same Azure region.

Global virtual network peering: Connecting virtual networks across Azure regions.
