    Recommended Training

    Citrix Education recommends that candidates have hands-on experience with Citrix NetScaler 12 and NetScaler Gateway 12 prior to taking this exam. One of the best ways to do this is by taking a formal Citrix training course. The following course provides training on administrator for NetScaler 12 and NetScaler Gateway 12.

    • CNS-222: Citrix NetScaler 12.x Essentials and Unified Gateway (instructor-led training course)

    As with all Citrix exams, it is recommended that candidates get hands-on experience by working directly with products covered on the exam.

    Unauthorized Preparation Materials

    Citrix Education monitors exam results to ensure that candidates are not using unauthorized materials to prepare for exams. If it is determined that a candidate used unauthorized materials to prepare for an exam, the candidate’s score will be invalidated and his or her certification will be revoked.

    When looking for materials in addition to authorized Citrix training to prepare for certification, Citrix Education recommends that you visit http://www.certguard.com to ensure that a site is indeed legitimate. This site flags websites that are acting as brain dumps, which have unauthorized materials.

    The section weights included in this guide are intended to help you in understanding how much of the exam is devoted to the topics listed. In fact, the percentages directly map to the number of questions on the exam. For example, if an exam has 60 questions, and Section 1 is weighted at 50%, then 30 of the questions on the exam will relate to Section 1 (60*50% = 30).

    Please be warned that section weights are NOT used to calculate your score. Scoring is far more complicated as exam questions may be given different weights based on their overall importance. Because some questions may have different point values assigned to them, section weights and exam scores do not always have a one-to-one correlation.

    For more information on how scoring works in Citrix exams read the blog The Scoring Secrets for Citrix Exams - Divulged.

    https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2009/08/25/the-scoring-secrets-for-citrix-exams-divulged/

  • Interpretation of Objectives

    Candidates should refer to the objectives and examples listed in this guide in order to determine which topics will be on the exam, as well as examples of the topics that could be tested.

    For example, if the objective reads, “Assess the printing infrastructure” and one of the examples reads, “Perform printer driver stress testing” candidates could expect to see:

    • A scenario describing a printing infrastructure: • Scenario: A Citrix Architect is assessing the current printing

    infrastructure at CGE. As part of the assessment, the architect wants to perform printer driver stress testing.

    • A question that requires determining how to assess the printer drivers:• How can the architect assess which printer drivers are in use in the

    current environment?

    Note: The examples listed in the “Sections, Objectives, Examples and References” section of this guide do NOT encompass all potential topics that could be tested. The examples are only provided as guidance.

    The objectives and examples for this exam were developed by Exam Project Managers and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) based on identified tasks that relate to installing, managing and supporting Citrix NetScaler 12 and Unified Gateway.

    Introduction

    Exam-takers should refer to the objectives listed in the “Sections, Objectives, Examples and References” section of this guide in order to determine which topics will be on the exam and examples of topics for each objective.

    For example, if the objective reads, "Troubleshoot high availability" and one of the examples reads, “determine how to resolve a given issue”, exam-takers could expect to see:

    A scenario describing an issue with high availability -Scenario: A Citrix Administrator is attempting to configure high availability for a NetScaler MPX pair. Each NetScaler appliance resides in a different subnet. The administrator noticed that network connectivity between the appliances was lost once the high availability pair was established.

    A question that requires determining how to resolve the given issue -What must the administrator enable to correct this issue?

    The objectives for this exam were developed by Exam Project Managers and Subject matter experts based on identified tasks that relate to installing, configuring and/or operating NetScaler 12 in enterprise environments.

    21

    Sample Question 1

    Scenario: A NetScaler receives packets that are destined for a service IP address owned by the NetScaler. The destination MAC address is NOT owned by the NetScaler. Layer 2 Mode is enabled on the NetScaler.

    What will the NetScaler do with the packets in this scenario?

    A. Drop the packets.B. Route the packets.C. Bridge the packets.D. Process the packets.

    Answer: C

    Objective: Identify which NetScaler routing and traffic-handling mode should be used for a given environment.

    Sample Question 2

    Scenario: A Network Engineer informed the Citrix Administrator that an interface used by NetScaler SDX is being saturated. This interface is used as a Data interface for the NetScaler SDX.

    Which action could the administrator take to address the bandwidth concerns?

    A. Configure LACP on the SDX for the Data interface.B. Configure LACP on the SDX for Management interface.C. Add a second interface to each NetScaler VPX instance.D. Configure a Failover interface set on each NetScaler VPX instance.

    Answer: A

    Objective: Determine the specific function of the SDX when given various SDX interface allocation scenarios.

    22

    Sample Question 3

    A Citrix Administrator needs to configure a Unified Gateway virtual server.

    To what should the administrator bind the Authentication policies?

    A. The Unified Gateway virtual serverB. NetScaler Gateway virtual serverC. The Content Switching virtual server and NetScaler Gateway virtual serverD. The AAA virtual server created while configuring the Unified Gateway virtual server

    Answer: B

    Objective: Determine how to configure Unified Gateway in a given environment.
