Question: 169
A customer has two different geographical sites deployed with two ClearPass servers in each site. Site A has the
Publisher (CPPM1) and a subscriber (CPPM2) and Site B has two subscribers (CPPM3 S CPPM4) All wired and
wireless authentication requests from the respective sites are handled by respective CPPMs deployed in the sites When
both the CPPM servers in Site B are lost, the authentications from Site B is handled by Site A subscriber (CPPM2). To
control the Multi-Master Cache flush and reduce the amount of inter-site traffic, the customer also created a new
Policy Manager Zone (Zone1) The Site B CPPM3 & CPPM4 are part of Zone! and Site A CPPM2 is also mapped to
Zone1 as it will act as the backup RADIUS server for Site B The corporate laptops are installed with Persistent agent
to run the OnGuard check and the OnGuard settings are also mapped to the Zones The Site A corporate user subnets
are mapped to default zone and the Site 6 corporate user subnets are mapped to Zone1. The customer has the following
issue in the setup: The corporate clients from Site A authenticating against the CPPM2 as their Primary RADIUS
server assigns Quarantine enforcement profile even though the user s health status is Healthy.
What is the cause of this issue?
A. Multi-master cache also contains the roles and posture of the associated and unassociated clients and is shared with
all members part of that Policy Manager Zone. CPPM2 belongs to Zone1 and the OnGuard setting for Site A is part of
the default zone and the system health validation information is sent to one of the nodes that are part of its home zone
As Posture cache for Site A hi not available with CPPM
B. it fails to apply the enforcement profile based on correct health status.
C. Multi-master cache also contains the roles and posture of the connected clients and is shared only with the members
part of that Policy Manager Zone. CPPM2 belongs to Zone1 and the OnGuard setting for Site A is part of the default
zone and the OnGuard system
health validation information is sent to one of the nodes that are part of its home zone only. As Posture cache for Site
A is not available with CPPM2. it fails to apply the enforcement profile based on correct health status.
D. Multi-master cache also contains the roles and posture of the connected clients and is shared across all members
part of the cluster. The OnGuard setting for Site A is part of only the default zone and the system health validation
information is sent to one of the nodes that are part of its home zone only As the OnGuard setting of the Site A
corporate user subset is not mapped with default as well as Zone1. CPPM2 fails to apply the enforcement profile based
on correct health status.
E. Multi-master cache also contains the roles and posture of the connected clients and is shared across all members
part of the cluster. The OnGuard setting for Site A is part of only the default zone and the OnGuard system health
validation information is sent to one of the nodes that is part of its home zone only. As the CPPM2 is also not mapped
to the default zone as well as Zone1, CPPM2 fails to apply the enforcement profile based on correct health status.

HP EliteBook 840 G7 review: The best mainstream business laptop0 0

HP's EliteBook 840 G7 has quickly become one of my favorite laptops. There's one big reason for that, which is that it's strikingly similar to the EliteBook x360 1040 G5 that I reviewed in February 2019, albeit without a convertible hinge. It's no surprise though, since the mainstream EliteBook 800 series is all about bringing down features from the premium EliteBook 1000 series.

Compared to the EliteBook 840 G5 that I reviewed in mid-2018, it's much thinner and lighter. In fact, just about everything about it has been upgraded. The keyboard has been vastly improved to be similar to the ones found on the 1000 series, and that's definitely a good thing. It's also got Intel's 10th-generation processors; in the model that HP sent me, it's the hexa-core vPro Core i7-10810U.


CPU Intel Core i7-10810U Processor, 1.1GHz, up to 4.9GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology, 12MB cache, 6 cores

Day one


All of HP's mainstream to premium EliteBooks are made of aluminum these days. Well, that's not counting the magnesium Elite Dragonfly, which is sort of in a different class. All of those aluminum laptops come in the plain old Natural Silver color, presumably because as business laptops, they're not meant to be too flashy like HP's stunning Spectre x360 PCs.

One thing that I want to focus on is how much has changed. HP says that the G7 is 9% smaller than its predecessor. This is evident if you look back at my review of the EliteBook 840 G5. That thing was well over a half-pound heavier than the G7. I started this off saying that this is reminiscent of the premium EliteBook x360 1040, but guess what; this is actually 0.03 pounds lighter than that machine.

I really have to say, I haven't reviewed HP's latest EliteBook 1000 laptops, but they must be amazing. That EliteBook x360 1040 is already one of my favorite laptops around. To see so much of it in the 800 series kind of blows me away.

Another thing that's changed about the design is that it has a tapered edge in the front. Rather than being flat, you can now very easily open the machine with one hand. I think it makes the machine a little more stylish as well. It also has the angled edges on the back along the hinge.

On the sides, there are plenty of ports. On the left side is where you'll find the two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, which will get you speeds of 5Gbps. Toward the front, there's also an optional Smart Card reader.

On the right side are both Thunderbolt 3 ports. The ports can support a 4K display on either one. I was a bit disappointed that I wasn't able to run two 4K displays off of a single port, as HP used to brag about always using "full" Thunderbolt 3 ports. For a little background there, the minimum Thunderbolt 3 spec supports one 4K display, but if it uses all four lanes, it can support two 4K displays or one 5K display on a single port, and it supports 40Gbps data transfer speeds.

On that side is also a pin charging port, HDMI 1.4, and a nano-SIM slot. If you opted not to get the cellular model, that SIM slot is still there; it's just filled with a slug.

Note that you do have an option in how you want to charge the EliteBook 840 G7. It can come with either the pin charger or a USB Type-C charger. This is meant for backward compatibility. If your business has a bunch of pin chargers lying around, you can use them. If you want to use your own USB Type-C charger, you can do that too.

Display and audio

HP actually gave me a choice between the EliteBook 840 and the 830. The difference between the two is the screen size. The 840 G7 has a 14-inch FHD display, while the 830 has a 13.3-inch screen. Personally, I think that 14 inches is the perfect size for a laptop, so that's what I went with.

There are several display configurations to choose from, all of which are 1080p. The one that HP sent me doesn't support touch, and it gets 400-nit brightness. There's also a 250-nit panel, which I really wouldn't recommend. If you want battery life, just turn the brightness down on the 400-nit panel. There are also options for multi-touch.

And finally, HP has some options with its Sure View privacy screen. It's actually pretty cool. You just hit a button and suddenly no one can see anything if they look at your screen from an angle.

The display on this unit reminds me of the EliteBook x360 1040 that I reviewed, in that I love it. The colors are accurate, and it's actually pleasant to use, something that can't be said of many matte anti-glare displays.

As I mentioned above, the footprint of the laptop is smaller than it was, and that's due to narrow bezels. This machine has an 85% screen-to-body ratio, with a 34% smaller top bezel, a 29% smaller chin, and 19% narrower side bezels. It still maintains the webcam and the IR camera in the top bezel though.

The Bang & Olufsen speakers are placed on either side of the keyboard, and they sound phenomenal. They're both clear and loud, and this something that I really appreciate from HP. The company understands that even though this is a business laptop, there's a good chance that it's your only laptop, and you're taking it home from work. That means that you might be using it for entertainment as well as productivity. It's your everything device, and it's meant to be.

Keyboard and trackpad

The EliteBook 840 G7 has one of the best keyboards on the market. No, really. It's comfortable and it's accurate, and in fact, HP says it's more accurate than the previous generation. This is the thing that made me fall in love with the EliteBook 1040. Not only do the keys feel sturdy with a perfect amount of depth and resistance, but they're quiet too.

If you've been following my reviews for a while, then you know that I used to be a huge fan of Lenovo's ThinkPad keyboards, but HP swayed me with the EliteBook x360 1040. It was the first time I was willing to entertain the idea that a keyboard could be better than on a ThinkPad. I'm really pleased to see that HP brought this keyboard down to the 800 series, because with Lenovo's PCs, you don't have to buy premium to get a great keyboard. I do hope that HP brings this keyboard to all of its tiers of both consumer and business laptops.

Right in the middle of the keyboard between the G, H, and B keys is a black nub for controlling the pointer. This is something that's not available at all on the 1000 series, and it was included on the EliteBook 840 G5. These exist from most OEMs in one or more models, and they're a relic from a time when Windows PC trackpads weren't very good. Obviously, some people still use them though.

The clickable trackpad uses Microsoft Precision drivers, so it's fast, responsive, and it supports all of the gestures that you're used to. Above it are two physical buttons, which are meant to be used with the nub on the keyboard, although I prefer the physical buttons with the trackpad.

Performance and battery life

The model that HP sent me is top-end, including an Intel Core i7-10810U and 16GB RAM. The Core i7-10810U is the vPro version of the Core i7-10710U, a 15W hexa-core CPU with 12 threads. It's from the Comet Lake family, as are all CPUs in business laptops that have Intel 10th-gen processors.

Some of the leading competitors to the EliteBook 840, such as Lenovo's ThinkPad T14 and T14s, aren't offered with this CPU. Those only go up to the Core i7-10610U, which is quad-core. Indeed, if you're looking for top-end Intel parts in a mainstream business laptop, the EliteBook 840 G7 is one of few choices.

Battery life is also weirdly good, although maybe I shouldn't feel like it's so weird because I know that this is something that HP focuses on. With my usual usage of the power slider being one notch above battery saver and the screen at 50% brightness, I got close to 10 hours of regular usage. I'm not talking about streaming Netflix or local video; I'm talking about actual work. If you're heading out for an eight-hour day, you can leave the charger at home.

For benchmarks, I used my usual PCMark 8 and PCMark 10.

PCMark 10 3,909 4,963 4,253 3,819

I did include an AMD Ryzen score, because AMD's Ryzen 4000 processors are legit. But the Core i7-10810U is the best you can get from Intel right now in a business PC.


The EliteBook 840 G7 might just be my absolute favorite PC. That's easy for me to say, because I said it about the EliteBook x360 1040 and these are so similar. It's got one of the best keyboards of any laptop, and it's thin and light. With the previous generation, it was a great all-around PC, but thin and light wasn't how I would have described it.

Also, this model has 4G LTE, a must-have feature for me. Honestly, in 2020, everything should just be able to connect to the internet all the time. I shouldn't have to worry about ending up on the Starbucks mailing list because I wanted to use the Wi-Fi in one of its locations, and I shouldn't have to wander around an airport lounge to find the Wi-Fi password. 4G LTE is a must.

My only complaint is that the Thunderbolt 3 ports aren't 'full' Thunderbolt 3 ports, meaning that you can't use a single port to power dual 4K displays. It was an easy enough issue to work around though. I simply unplugged one of my 4K monitors from the Thunderbolt 3 dock and plugged it into the second Thunderbolt 3 port.

But all-in-all, this thing is nearly perfect. It has great speakers, an amazing keyboard, a solid anti-glare display, and a thin and light chassis. This model comes in at $2,199. You can find the EliteBook 840 G7 on here.

Head-To-Head: HP EliteBook x360 Vs. Microsoft Surface Book i7

Windows 10 Goes High End

Many buyers start out trying to find the perfect laptop and usually have to settle for something that falls short in certain areas. Two new Windows 10 laptops, however, come pretty close to having it all -- offering nearly everything that modern laptop users desire, with very few trade-offs. Those would be the HP EliteBook x360, which is brand new this month, and the Microsoft Surface Book i7 (aka the Surface Book with Performance Base), which has been on the market for just a few months.

But "having it all" doesn't come cheap. In the following slides, the CRN Exam Center breaks down how the EliteBook x360 and Surface Book i7 compare on specs and price.


Both the EliteBook x360 and Surface Book i7 feature touch screen displays that convert into tablets; the 13.3-inch EliteBook display can fold all the way back, while the Surface Book has a 13.5-inch display that detaches from the keyboard.

HP is planning a few options for the EliteBook x360 display, but for now just one is available -- FHD (1,920 x 1,080) BrightView. In April, HP says it plans to debut a UHD 4K (3,840 x 2,160) version, as well as an FHD display with the Sure View integrated PC privacy screen.

For the time being, the Surface Book i7 wins in terms of display resolution, with its 3,000 x 2,000 PixelSense display.


For the EliteBook x360, HP has used the latest-generation, top-of-the-line processors from Intel (the seventh-gen Core i processors, known as Kaby Lake). Options are for Core i5-7200U (2.5GHz), Core i5-7300U (2.6GHz) or, at the top end, the Core i7-7600U (2.9GHz).

The Surface Book i7, as suggested by the name, features the Intel Core i7 processor. But it's from the older, sixth-generation line -- the Core i7-6600U (2.6 GHz). Apparently, Microsoft's schedule for the Surface Book i7 did not quite line up with Intel's timetable for Kaby Lake.


One area where the Surface Book i7 shines is on graphics, as the laptop uses a stand-alone graphics processor, the GeForce GTX 965M, from prominent GPU vendor Nvidia. By contrast, the EliteBook x360 uses Intel HD Graphics 620 that are integrated with the CPU.

Battery Life

When it comes to "having it all" on a laptop, a fast processor and high-res display are just two of the key ingredients. Another must is strong battery life, and both the EliteBook x360 and Surface Book i7 have it. Microsoft promises that the Surface Book i7 will get up to an amazing 16 hours of battery life on a charge, while HP promises even more for the EliteBook x360 -- 16 hours and 30 minutes. HP also says the EliteBook x360 is capable of recharging half of its battery life in a half hour.

Weight & Thickness

Both HP and Microsoft have managed develop their respective laptops with a very slim profile, even with the major processing power, high-res displays and battery life. The EliteBook x360 and the Surface Book i7 each measure 0.59 of an inch thick, placing them among the thinnest laptops on the market.

The EliteBook x360 wins in the lightness category, though, with a weight of 2.82 pounds. The Surface Book i7 weighs 3.68 pounds, by contrast.

Memory & Storage

The EliteBook x360 and Surface Book i7 each offer configurations with 8GB or 16GB of RAM. There's a bit more to say about storage, though. The EliteBook x360 comes in configurations with 128GB or 256GB of SATA solid-state storage, and also with 256GB or 512GB of PCIe solid-state storage. Microsoft offers PCIe for all of the Surface Book i7 storage configurations -- 256GB, 512GB or 1TB.


Both the EliteBook x360 and Surface Book i7 are well-endowed when it comes to ports, in contrast to many of the thin laptops now hitting the market. But if you're into USB-C, the EliteBook x360 may be the better choice, as it comes with a USB-C port in addition to two USB-A ports, HDMI and Micro SD.

The Surface Book i7 includes two USB-A ports, two Surface Connect ports (for power and docking), an SD card reader and a Mini DisplayPort.


As mentioned, HP and Microsoft aren't offering any inexpensive options for their respective laptops. The starting price for the two laptops is actually the same -- $2,399. For the Surface Book i7, that gets you the sixth-gen Core i7-6600U, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of PCIe storage. For the EliteBook x360, that gets you the seventh-gen Core i5-7200U, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of SATA storage.

The prices only go up from there, of course, topping out at $3,299 for the highest-end Surface Book i7 and $3,385 for the top-end EliteBook x360. One can assume the EliteBook x360 with a higher-res display will also start a higher price point once it debuts in April.

Head-To-Head: HP's Spectre Laptop Faster, Thinner And Lighter Than Microsoft's Surface Book

The Fastest Ever Made?

Microsoft claims to have the fastest 13-inch laptop on the market with its first-ever Surface Book. Well, not so fast, Microsoft.

On paper, Hewlett-Packard's 13-inch Spectre x360 convertible 2-in-1 laptop (13-4195dx) is faster when compared with the identically priced Surface Book laptop configured with 128 GB storage and Intel's sixth-generation Skylake Core i5-6300U mobile processor.

Earlier this month, during Microsoft's launch of the Surface Book, Microsoft devices boss Panos Panay called the Surface Book "the ultimate laptop," "ounce for ounce the fastest 13-inch laptop ever made" and "the thinnest, most powerful PC ever created."

This head-to-head match is a battle of laptop equals, pitting the $1,500 HP Spectre x360 against identically priced Surface Book. To be clear, for this challenge, instead of focusing on Microsoft's $2,700 Surface Book with its discrete Nvidia graphics and Intel's top performing i7-6600U CPU, we are focusing on how well Microsoft holds up to the competition as you move down its Surface Book lineup.

Here is how HP's Spectre x360 compares to Microsoft's entry-level Surface Book.

Sizing Up The Competition

HP Spectre x360 convertible 2-in-1 laptop: The HP model 2-in-1 is the closest laptop we've seen to matching the entry-level Surface Book. With a price tag of $1,500, the laptop features an aluminum unibody chassis that weighs in at 3.17 pounds, is 0.63 inches thick, 12.8 inches wide and 8.6 inches deep. The laptop also sports a 13.3-inch touch-screen display with a hinge that swivels 360 degrees -- turning the laptop into a convertible that can be used as a tablet. The main difference is that the display does not detach, as the Surface Book's does.

Surface Book: The Microsoft 13.5-inch Surface Book we are pitting against HP's laptop is its base configuration model, which starts at $1,500. It weighs 3.48 pounds and is 0.9 inches thick, 12.3 inches wide and 9.14 inches deep. The chassis is magnesium silver alloy. The main differentiator between the HP Spectre system and the Surface Book is that the Microsoft laptop has a detachable hinge, allowing it to transform into a tablet.

Bottom line: The Spectre is 8.9 percent lighter and 30 percent thinner than the Surface Book. But the Surface Book has a narrower footprint, allowing it to fit more easily into a briefcase, purse or backpack.

CPU Deep Dive -- Clock Speed

Microsoft uses Intel's sixth-generation dual Core i5-6300U mobile processor with a clock speed of 2.4 GHz and the ability to jump to 3.0 GHz when needed.

Hewlett-Packard uses one of Intel's top-performing dual Core i7-6500U mobile processors with a base clock speed of 2.5 GHz and a 3.1 GHz turbo boost speed.

Will you notice the speed difference? Probably not. But, keep in mind that the differences between the chips are not just gigahertz, but also class. The difference between an i7 processor and an i5 processor is not insignificant.

CPU Deep Dive -- i5 Vs. i7

Hewlett-Packard's performance edges out Microsoft's in terms of clock speed by a hair. But HP should pull far ahead of Microsoft when it comes to application performance.

Surface Book's i5 processor delivers near-equal clock speeds, but Intel's i7 processors outperform the i5 when it comes to multitasking, multimedia tasks, high-end gaming and running processor-intensive business applications. So just because the Surface Book has comparable clock speed to HP's, it doesn't mean it can keep pace. Using a car analogy, the i5 Surface Book will lag a hair behind HP's i7 on a straight race track when it comes to speed. But HP's Spectre x360 can handily outperform the Surface Book in the race track corners and off-road.

CPU Deep Dive -- Chip Cache

Another determining factor in chip performance is the level of cache is on the chip, allowing for better overall system performance when multitasking. As the name suggests, cache offers the CPU extra storage, allowing the CPU, for example, to handle background tasks, so when you flip from one window to the next, your system doesn't skip a beat.

HP's i7-6500U has 4 MB of smart cache, 25 percent more that Microsoft's Surface Book with 3 MB.

CPU Deep Dive -- Integrated Graphics

Neither the Dell XPS nor the Microsoft Surface Book offers a discrete GPU.

Surface Book: Both the $1,500 Surface Book and HP Spectre x360 use Intel's 520 HD graphics that make use of Skylake CPU and GPU cores. So you can expect the same graphics performance.

Spec-To-Spec Matchup

Surface Book: The $1,500 model of Microsoft's laptop ships with Windows 10 Pro, has an M.2 PCIe hard drive capacity of SSD 128 GB and ships with 8 GB of RAM; however, Microsoft doesn't specify memory speeds. This model Surface Book features a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Spectre x360: HP's laptop ships with Windows 10 Home, M.2 PCIe SSD hard drive capacity of 512 GB, 8 GB LPDDR3 1866 MHz RAM. This model only has one front-facing HP TrueVision camera with unspecified lens resolution.

Bottom line: For the money, HP delivers beefier specs when it comes to processor and hard-drive capacity. Comparing SSD performances between HP's use of M.2 and Microsoft's use of M.2 is difficult because performance advantages depend on wiring, chips and implementation.

Dueling Touch Displays

Surface Book: The Surface Book 3,000-by-2,000 screen is 13.5 inches diagonally and features a technology called PixelSense. PixelSense is a Microsoft-developed technology that helps touch displays differentiate among a finger, palm or stylus touching its screen, so it can respond appropriately. For example, the Surface Book can identify the amount of pressure applied by a stylus tip, and differentiate between that and a palm resting on the display.

Microsoft also includes a pen for use with its detachable tablet/display.

Spectre x360: The Spectre's 2,560-by-1,440 screen is 13.3 inches diagonally.

Better Battery Battle

Surface Book: Microsoft claims its laptop can run 12 hours between charges when playing back video content. Battery life estimates were based on Microsoft's testing Intel Core i5 with 8 GB RAM. When using just the Surface Book's detachable display in tablet mode, the detached screen has about 3 hours of battery life.

Spectre x360: HP rates the battery life at "up to 11 hours." Like the Surface Book's Core i5, the Spectre x360 uses a processor that is rated at 15 watts. This should guarantee that both laptops will be extremely power-efficient.

Port Appraisal

Surface Book: Nearly all the ports are on the base keyboard portion of this 2-in-1. The detachable clipboard (as Microsoft calls it) includes only an audio headphone jack. Ports on the keyboard base include: two full-size USB 3.0 ports, a full-size SD card reader and Surface Connect port (for power and docking). Other ports on the keyboard base include an additional stereo headphones/microphone jack and a Mini DisplayPort.

Spectre x360: As for connecting peripherals the Spectre includes three USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port, one Mini DisplayPort and a headphone/microphone combo jack. The Spectre also includes one full-size SD card reader.


Surface Book: Microsoft's detachable keyboard includes backlit keys coupled with a glass track pad and is touted as an extremely "quiet" keyboard. The keyboard includes 12 function keys and four arrow keys.

Spectre x360: While HP's keyboard is not detachable, it is a full-size, comfortable backlit keyboard with an ultra-wide track pad.

Which Is Faster?

On paper, HP's Spectre x360 Convertible 2-in-1 laptop (model 13-4195dx) beats out Microsoft's equally expensive Surface Book (128 GB i5-6300U) model. HP wins when it comes to clock speed, CPU cache and chip architecture. Based on careful analysis of both systems' specs, Microsoft appears to have met its 13-inch laptop match with the Spectre x360.

Which should you buy? Buy what's right for you. Microsoft's 2-in-1 has a display that undocks to become a truer tablet that also comes with an excellent stylus. HP offers a beefier hard drive and better specs. But until benchmark testing can offer definitive performance comparison, we'll have to go with the next best thing -- published specs.
