An engineer chose to design an architecture where distribution switches are in VSS and are connected to access switches using Multichassis Etherchannel.
What is the resulting topology?
A e-commerce network has many devices that often need to be upgraded on a regular basis.
What technology will ensure IP packets continue to be forwarded even during a device failover?
A. stateful switchover
B. nonstop forwarding
C. route processor redundancy
D. optimized edge routing
E. enhanced object tracking
Which two of these are recommended practices with trunks? (Choose two.)
A. use ISL encapsulation
B. use 802.1q encapsulation
C. set ISL to desirable and auto with encapsulation negotiate to support ISL protocol negotiation
D. use VTP server mode to support dynamic propagation of VLAN information across the network
E. set DTP to desirable and desirable with encapsulation negotiate to support DTP protocol negotiation.
Answer: B, E
"As a recommended practice, when configuring switch-to-switch interconnections to carry multiple VLANs,set Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP) to Desirable and Desirable with Encapsulation Negotiate to support DTP negotiation."
In what situation must spanning-tree be implemented?
A. When redundant Layer 2 links, that are not part of a single EtherChannel or bundle, exist between distribution switches
B. When redundant Layer 3 links, that are not part of a single EtherChannel or bundle, exist between distribution switches
C. Between Distribution and Core switches when interfaces are configured with "no switchport"
D. Between Distribution and Core switches when VSS is configured
Out of band management.
What is the best practice Cisco design?
A. Data traffic should never pass or enter the management network
B. In-band management as backup
C. Enforce QoS
D. Enable dynamic routing
"An OOB management network should be deployed using the following best practices:
• Provide network isolation
• Enforce access control
• Prevent data traffic from transiting the management network"
