Chapter 1: Virtual Machine Settings
The first thing you need to grasp when studying for the 74-409 exam is
the basics of virtual machine (VM) settings. You’ll need to understand how
dynamic memory and smart paging work when VMs are starting, restarting and
operating. You’ll need to understand the difference between generation 1 and
generation 2 VMs. You’ll need to know the conditions under which Enhanced
Session Mode and RemoteFX can be used. You’ll also need to understand
resource metering and VM guest integration services.
