You manage a cloud service that supports features hosted by two instances of an Azure
virtual machine (VM).
You discover that occasional outages cause your service to fail.
You need to minimize the impact of outages to your cloud service.
Which two actions should you perform? Each correct answer presents part of the solution.

My answer is: B,D https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/manage-availability#combine-a-load-balancer-with-availability-sets




Answers are B, D


c AND d https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh973190.aspx


You cannot add VM to Availability Set after creation of VM. You need to redeploy them. You can create Availability set during VM creation Answer is C and D https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh973190.aspx


Affinity groups are no longer in Resource manager model. I would go with A and B


I need to change my answer. It should be B and D. C is invalid because affinity groups are depreciated now.


you cannot add an existing vm to an availability set. All the machines has to be reprovisioned in an availability set


This specifies a Cloud Service, which indicates it is referring to the Classic Azure Portal (ASM model), which does not have availability sets available. This would eliminate D as an option. We need to minimize the outage, so redeploying isn't ideal. A & B are the only possible options.


A.B seems to be correct
