Here are your CCNP SWITCH Flash Card Practice Exam Questions for Thursday, January 30!





Hi Bulldogs!


Hope those of you on the East Coast are staying warm!  (And everywhere else, too!  Brrrr!)


Right now, let's tackle a new CCNP SWITCH practice exam!  Today's practice exam is in Flash Card format -- no choices given!  Let's get to it!



"
1.    You'd like to prevent a Cisco switch port from transmitting Dynamic Trunking Protocol frames.  What command will make this happen?


2.    What Etherchannel negotiation protocol is Cisco-proprietary, and runs in either dynamic or auto mode?


3.   As it relates to trunking, what's the main purpose of the IEEE 802.3ac protocol?


I'll hit you with the answers right after I hit you with this great CCNP training opportunity -- and right now, it ships to you FREE!

You get the CCNP Works!   All three of my CCNP Study Guides (ROUTE, SWITCH, TSHOOT) in hard copy, plus a DVD of each of my CCNP Video Boot Camps, just as you see here!


The Ultimate CCNP Study Pack -- Only From Chris Bryant!


You get this AND immediate online access to the videos for just $299 -- and right now, we ship free to United States AND International addresses alike!

That International free shipping is via Federal Express, too! (Free U.S. shipping is via United States Postal Service Priority Mail, so you'll have your pack in 2 - 4 days.)

Click that link or hit this "Buy Now" button and you'll be watching over 50 hours of Video Boot Camp goodness in just minutes -- and once you have your DVDs, you KEEP the online access!




Grab it now!  -- Chris B.


And now... the answers!


1. This one's a little tricky, since the command doesn't specifically mention DTP, and here it is -- switchport nonegotiate.

SW1(config)#int fast 0/1
SW1(config-if)#switchport ?
  access         Set access mode characteristics of the interface
  host           Set port host
  mode           Set trunking mode of the interface
  native         Set trunking native characteristics when interface is in
                 trunking mode
  nonegotiate    Device will not engage in negotiation protocol on this interface


2.  PaGP is the Cisco-proprietary Etherchannel negotiating protocol. You run it in either dynamic or auto mode.




3.  The IEEE 802.3ac standard allows the maximum frame length to be extended to 1522 bytes, which means the dot1q 4-byte header doesn't cause transmission issues.



See you Friday with more help on your CCNP certification!

..... Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we're back!


Back to daily Training Post posts, along with 
the business of earning your CCENT, CCNA, and CCNP in 2014!

BTW, the new website is now scheduled for an end-of-February launch, thanks to the nasty flu / cold that went around the TBA workspace -- and so is my all-new CCENT and CCNA practice exam!

Today's CCNA practice exam covers EIGRP, and there's some excellent review material here for you CCNP Bulldos, too!

I'll see you Wednesday with all-new questions for the CCENT, CCNA, and CCNP.

When you're done here, check out my best-selling CCNA and CCENT Study Guides on Amazon!   No Kindle required - just use any of the free Kindle Apps!







Get an additional 150+ binary and subnetting practice questions for about three cents each with my Binary Math Success ebook!



Your CCNA practice questions for January 28:




1.  Which two of the following are used by EIGRP in route calculation by default?

A.  bandwidth

B.  load

C.  delay

D.  reliability

E.  MTU



2.  You want EIGRP to know that a Serial interface is running at 56 kbps.  The full, exact, unabbreviated command to configure on that interface is what?




3.  In the following command what does the "100" indicate?

ip hold-time eigrp 100 50

A.  The AS number

B.  The area number

C.  The hold-time value

D.  The hello-time value

E.  The variance setting

And now... the answers!

1.   A, C.  EIGRP uses the bandwidth and delay metrics by default in its route calculations.



2.  Watch this one -- the bandwidth command wants you to enter the numeric value in kbps, not bps, so the command is:

R1(config)#int s0
R1(config-if)#bandwidth ?
  <1-10000000>  Bandwidth in kilobits


R1(config-if)#bandwidth 56



3.   Watch this one, too.  Many EIGRP commands force you to put the AS number in there somewhere, and that's exactly what the "100" is here.  The second number is the actual hold-time.

R1(config-if)#ip hold-time eigrp ?
  <1-65535>  Autonomous system number

R1(config-if)#ip hold-time eigrp 100 ?
  <1-65535>  Seconds before neighbor is considered down


R1(config-if)#ip hold-time eigrp 100


See you Wednesday with all-new questions!

Yesterday: Seriously contemplated popping the top on the 

convertible since it was such a gorgeous, sunny afternoon.


Today: Seriously contemplating setting the passenger seat on 


fire in order to keep warm.

It's January 22, and don't tell anyone, but I think I'm finally over that incredibly nasty cold.   


My condolences to anyone else who has this sucker right now. 

With that said, let's get back to the business of earning our CCENT and CCNA in 2014!

Here's a new set of CCENT and CCNA Flash Card practice exam questions for you to help you do just that, and I've posted some bonus videos as well.   

Allow me to take a moment to thank you for making my three CCNA Success books on Amazon into Amazon Bestsellers...





... and if you don't have yours yet, take a moment and make it happen right now!   No Kindle required - just use any of the free Kindle Apps!








Get an additional 150+ binary and subnetting practice questions for about three cents each with my Binary Math Success ebook!



Let's get to today's Flash Card questions!



1.  What's indicated by the Frame Relay acronym "DE"?


2.  This particular type of Frame Relay message is exchanged by the DTE and DCE, and is the keepalive for Frame Relay.




3.  If there's a mismatch with the message type mentioned in Question 2,  "show interface serial" will indicate what status regarding the physical and logical state of the interface?




4.  The binary string representing the decimal 211.





5.  The decimal represented by the binary string 00110011.

And now... the answers!

1.   The Frame Relay acronym "DE" stands for Discard Eligible.  When a frame has the DE bit set, that means this frame can be dropped when the congestion level demands that some traffic be dropped.



2.  The Local Management Interface (LMI) is exchanged between our DTE and DCE, and if that LMI isn't successfully exchanged, the line protocol will drop....


3.   ... and "show interface serial" will display "Serial0 is up, line protocol is down" as a result.


4.  For 211, the binary string will have the 128, 64, 16, 2, and 1 bits set, so it'll read 11010011.


5.   The string 00110011 has the 32, 16, 2, and 1 bits set.  Just add 'em up and you have 51.


See you later today with a new video!

It's January 22, and now that my cold may FINALLY be gone, we can get back to daily Training Posts!

Here's your CCNP ROUTE and TSHOOT Training Post for today. There's a new set of Flash Card practice exam questions here now, and a new video will be posted later today!

I've also posted a three-part Video Boot Camp on floating static routes that I know you'll enjoy.

Let's get started!


"If you're studying for the CCNP ROUTE exam, this is a book you need to have!" -- Amazon reviewer "eric" on this info-packed study guide!







Let's hit today's questions!


1.  You're creating a floating static route that should appear in your IP routing table only if the matching RIP route disappears.  What is the smallest administrative distance you can use for this route to make this happen?


2.  You'd like to run ODR.  What non-routing protocol must be running in order to successfully enable ODR?


3.  Describe the circumstances under which an EIGRP AS will automatically redistribute routes with another EIGRP AS on that same router (if any).


Answers right after this brief, important message -- especially for those of you who want your CCNP in 2014!




Over 47,000 happy Bulldogs just like you are in my CCNP Video Boot Camps!


Grab a 60% discount with these links, and let's get started on your CCNP exam success RIGHT NOW!





CCNP All-In-One Boot Camp ($99 for 50+ hours!)






Let's check out the answers!

1.  Since RIP's AD is 120, your floating static route should have an AD of at least 121.


2.  To successfully run our old pal ODR, you must first have Cisco Discovery Protocol running.


3.  Under no circumstances will an EIGRP AS automatically redistribute routes with another EIGRP AS on that same router.


From my YouTube CCNP ROUTE training channel, here's a three-part Video Boot Camp on floating static routes.   Dig in, and I'll see you later today with more!

Here are your CCNP SWITCH Flash Card Practice Exam Questions for Wednesday, January 22!

(By the way, if this post has overlapping letters in your browser, leave a message and let me know about it.  Thanks!)





Hi Bulldogs!

Hey, you know that cold I thought was over last week? It wasn't!

So let's restart our 2014 restart with a new set of CCNP SWITCH Flash Card practice exam questions!


I'll give you the description or scenario, and you just follow that with the answer!  Simple as that -- so let's get started!

Chris B.


"Clear, concise and plenty of example configs to jog my memory.  Easily worth the $10!" --   Francis Mann, Amazon reviewer, on my CCNP SWITCH Study Guide!

I guarantee you it's the best $10 you'll ever spend on your CCNP SWITCH studies -- and you don't need a Kindle to read it with these free Kindle Apps






1.    You're enabling Uplinkfast on a Cisco switch.  Assuming all other switches in the network are running at their default, what will the priority of the Uplinkfast-enabled switch be?


2.    Of the three layers of the Cisco switching model, at which layers should you enable Uplinkfast?


3.   You're enabling Backbonefast in your Cisco switching network.  Of the three Cisco switching model layers, where does Cisco recommend you run Backbonefast?


Get the answers and a little extra right after this brief and VERY important message!

Just follow that link or click this banner - your 60% discount will be automatically applied!


(An even better deal - get all 3 CCNP Video Boot Camps for just $99!)






And now... the answers!


1. When you enable Uplinkfast on a Cisco switch, the priority of that switch will zoom ahead to 49,152.



2.  You should enable Uplinkfast only on your access-layer switches.  (You won't be able to enable it on a root switch.)



3.  When it comes to Backbonefast, though, that's an all-or-nothing deal -- you should enable it on all switches in your network.


See you Wednesday afternoon with a new CCNP SWITCH video and Thursday with more practice exam questions!

And now... the answers!

1.  This is an EIGRP External route, and it has an AD of 170.  (EIGRP Internal routes have an AD of 90.)


2.   In decimal, that binary string is 243.  In hex, which is what the question asked for, it's F3  (15 units of 16, 3 units of 1).

3.  EIGRP External routes have the IP routing table code "D EX".

4.  The decimal 47 converts to 00101111.

TWO new CCENT and CCNA videos coming Thursday, along with more practice exam questions -- see you then!
