The Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) allows vSphere Administrators to use rules to enforce virtual machine placement on cluster nodes. An example of such a rule is in the image below with a rule to reparate two domain controllers so that they won't run on the same vSphere host.
vRealize Orchestrator allows you to configure permissions for users in your authentication domain to access your vRO deployment with different types of access.

Then I suggest that you access the following web page and familiarize yourself with how the exam interface works. This prevents you from losing precious time during the exam. Dave Davis has done a very good job demonstrating how the interface works.

For many NSX components you can easily configure a syslog server, such as vRealize Log Insight. This however is not simple and straightforward for the NSX Controller Nodes. For those components this setting has to be configured via the NSX API via HTTP REST. In this article I explain how to use vRealize Orchestrator to accomplish this task.
