You download an Azure Resource Manager template based on an existing virtual machine. The template will be used to deploy 100 virtual machines.

  • B. an Azure Storage account and an access policy
  • C. a Recovery Services vault and a backup policy
  • D. Azure Active Directory (AD) Identity Protection and an Azure policy
Show Suggested Answer Hide Answer
Suggested Answer: A ūüó≥ÔłŹ
You can use a template that allows you to deploy a simple Windows VM by retrieving the password that is stored in a Key Vault. Therefore, the password is never put in plain text in the template parameter file.

Selected Answer: A
The correct answer is: A. an Azure Key Vault and an access policy Explanation: Azure Key Vault is a cloud service that safeguards encryption keys and secrets like certificates, connection strings, and passwords. When deploying resources through Azure Resource Manager templates, it's a best practice to store sensitive data like administrative passwords in Azure Key Vault rather than in the template itself. By referencing the Azure Key Vault in the ARM template, the password can be fetched securely during deployment. The access policy in Azure Key Vault defines what operations can be done on the secrets (like read or write) and who can perform these operations. Thus, the best way to securely store and reference an administrative password in an Azure Resource Manager template is by using Azure Key Vault and setting an appropriate access policy.
