What is the Cisco IOS Resilient Configuration, and what is its purpose?
Answer: The Cisco IOS Resilient Configuration is a relatively new feature - it was introduced in 12.3(8)T - but it's a vital tool to have in case your Cisco routers are hit by an attack.
A Cisco router running this feature will both secure and maintain a copy of the starting configuration and the IOS image. Cisco's website states that these copies (the primary bootset) can't be erased by a user.
The commands are straightforward:
boot-config Archive the startup configuration
boot-image Secure the running image
As usual, there are restrictions on this feature that Cisco would like you to know before using this feature on a production router. You can quickly find that additional information via your favorite search engine.
CCNP Certification / BSCI Exam:
What's the major difference between an O E2 OSPF route and an O E1 OSPF route?
Answer: Both are routes learned by OSPF via route redistribution. The difference between E2 and E1 routes is that the metric of an E2 route only reflects the cost of the path between the ASBR and the final destination.
The metric of an E1 route reflects the OSPF cost of the entire path from the local router to the final destination.
