20 What is the likely impact of moving a conventional company architecture to a completely converged network?

What will solve the problem? Reset the revision number on S2 with either the delete VTP command or by changing the domain name and then changing it back. The lab domain has a higher revision number.) unable to add VLANs can add VLANs of local significance forward broadcasts out all ports with no respect to VLAN information can only pass VLAN management information without adopting changes can forward VLAN information to other switches in the same VTP domain 3 . Change S1 to transparent VTP mode to reclaim all VLANs in vlan. Change S2 to client mode so the VLANs will automatically propagate. The lab and production networks use the same VTP domain name. 2What are two features of VTP client mode operation? (Choose two. E. A shared infrastructure is created resulting in a single network to manage. except VLAN 1. manually on Switch1 so that they propagate throughout the network. many computers lost network connectivity. so the network administrator made no configuration changes to S2 before adding it to the production network.A. The Ethernet VLAN structure is less complex. S2 was previously used in a lab environment and has been added to the production network in server mode. Local analog phone service can be completely outsourced to cost-effective providers. B. Re-enter all appropriate VLANs. C. QoS issues are greatly reduced.dat and change back to server mode. 3-Chapter 4 1 Refer to the exhibit. D. There is less bandwidth competition between voice and video streams. After S2 was added to the production network.

Switch S1 is in VTP server mode.Refer to the exhibit.99. Server mode switches neither listen to nor forward VTP messages from transparent mode switches. Pruning must be configured on all VTP servers in the domain. VLANs created on transparent mode switches are not included in VTP advertisements. VLANs on VTP client-mode switches will not be pruned. What will the effect be on S2? S2 will retain the VLANs as of the latest known revision. S2 will automatically transition to VTP transparent mode. Pruning will prevent unnecessary flooding of broadcasts across trunks. S2 will automatically send a VTP request advertisement to 172. Each switch is labeled with its VTP mode. 6 .) Pruning is enabled by default. S2 will remove all VLANs from the VLAN database until the cable is reconnected. Pruning can only be configured on VTP servers. A new VLAN is added to Switch3. What is the reason for this? VLANs cannot be created on transparent mode switches. An administrator accidentally disconnects the cable from F0/1 on S2. Transparent mode switches do not forward VTP advertisements. This VLAN does not show up on the other switches. 5 Refer to the exhibit. The switches in the exhibit are connected with trunks within the same VTP management domain.11 when the cable is reconnected. Switches S2 and S3 are in client mode.17. 4Which two statements are true about VTP pruning? (Choose two.

the other VTP-enabled switches in the same VTP domain will consider their own VLAN information to be more recent than the VLAN information advertised by this switch. Change the VTP domain name. It increments the revision number and forwards it to other switches. This switch shows no configuration revision errors. This switch is configured to advertise its VLAN configuration to other VTP-enabled switches in the same VTP domain. It deletes the VLANs not included in the summary advertisement. This switch has established two-way communication with the neighboring devices. 8A network administrator is replacing a failed switch with a switch that was previously on the network. Change all the interfaces on the switch to access ports. Which two facts can be confirmed by this output? (Choose two. It issues summary advertisements to advise other switches of status changes. It issues an advertisement request for new VLAN information. Change the VTP mode to client.Refer to the exhibit. 7 What does a client mode switch in a VTP management domain do when it receives a summary advertisement with a revision number higher than its current revision number? It suspends forwarding until a subset advertisement update arrives. 9 . This switch is configured to allows the network manager to maximize bandwidth by restricting traffic to specific network devices.) If this switch is added to an established network. What precautionary step should the administrator take on the replacement switch to avoid incorrect VLAN information from propagating through the network? Enable VTP pruning.

The switches must be configured with the same VTP domain name. The switch operates as a VTP server and deletes the existing VLAN configuration in the domain. The switch operates in VTP transparent mode. Switches SW1 and SW2 are interconnected via a trunk link but failed to exchange VLAN information. The switches must be interconnected via an access link. All switches in the network participate in the same VTP domain. The network administrator issued the show vtp status command to troubleshoot the problem. . What happens when the new switch SW2 with a default configuration and revision number of 0 is inserted in the existing VTP domain Lab_Network? The switch operates as a VTP client. Both switches must be configured with the same VTP revision number. 1 0 Refer to the exhibit. what could be done to correct the problem? Switch SW2 must be configured as a VTP client.Refer to the exhibit. On the basis of the provided command output.

Switch1 is not participating in the VTP management process with the other switches that are shown in the exhibit.The switch operates as a VTP server. What are two possible explanations for this? (Choose two. 13 Refer to the exhibit.) Switch1 is in client mode. Which switch or switches receive VTP updates and synchronize their VLAN configuration based on those updates? All switches receive updates and synchronize VLAN information. and switch SW3 is configured in VTP transparent mode. All switches in the VTP domain are new. SW3 and SW4 receive updates. . Switch SW1 is configured as a VTP server. but does not impact the existing VLAN configuration in the domain. Switch2 is in server mode. Only switches SW3 and SW4 receive updates and synchronize VLAN information. Only switch SW2 receives updates and synchronizes VLAN information. but only switch SW4 synchronizes VLAN information. The switch operates as a VTP server in the default VTP domain and does not affect the configuration in the existing VTP domain.

Switch2 is in transparent mode. A port on the switch has been shutdown. What causes a VTP configured switch to issue a summary advertisement? A five-minute update timer has elapsed.) Switches must be connected via trunks. Switch1 is using VTP version 1. The VTP domain name is case sensitive. Transparent mode switches cannot be configured with new VLANs. 7 18 Which statement is true when VTP is configured on a switched network that incorporates VLANs? . A new host has been attached to a switch in the management domain. and Switch2 is using VTP version 2. 1 How are VTP messages sent between switches in a domain? Layer 2 broadcast 4 Layer 2 multicast Layer 2 unicast Layer 3 broadcast Layer 3 multicast Layer 3 unicast 15 16 Refer to the exhibit. Switch1 has end devices that are connected to the ports. It verifies the VTP domain name is V1. What information can be learned from the output provided? It verifies the configured VTP password. Switches that use VTP must have the same switch name. The switch is changed to the transparent mode. Switch1 is in a different management domain. It verifies the VTP domain is configured to use VTP version 2. The VTP password is mandatory and case sensitive. 1 Which two statements are true about the implementation of VTP? (Choose two. It verifies VTP advertisements are being exchanged.

) 9 revision number domain name pruning mode domain password version number 20 Which two statements describe VTP transparent mode operation? (Choose two. VTP adds to the complexity of managing a switched network. Transparent mode switches can adopt VLAN management changes that are received from other switches. Transparent mode switches originate updates about the status of their VLANS and inform other switches about that status.1Q standard. VTP dynamically communicates VLAN changes to all switches in the same VTP domain. Transparent mode switches can add VLANs of local significance only. Transparent mode switches pass any VLAN management information that they receive to other switches. .VTP is only compatible with the 802. 1 Which three VTP parameters must be identical on all switches to participate in the same VTP domain? (Choose three.) Transparent mode switches can create VLAN management information. VTP allows a switch to be configured to belong to more than one VTP domain.

3 What two elements will exist in a converged network with one spanning tree? (Choose two.3-Chapter 5 1 What Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) role is assigned to the forwarding port elected for every Ethernet LAN segment that links two switches? alternate backup designated edge 2 Refer to the exhibit. Switch_A and Switch_B will continuously flood the message onto the network. Server sends an ARP request for the MAC address of its default gateway. If STP is not enabled. what will be the result of this ARP request? Router_1 will drop the broadcast and reply with the MAC address of the next hop router.) one root bridge per network all non-designated ports forwarding one root port per non-root bridge multiple designated ports per segment one designated port per network 4In which STP state does a port record MAC addresses but not forward user data? blocking learning disabling listening forwarding 5 In which two ways is the information that is contained in BPDUs used by switches? (Choose two. The message will cycle around the network until its TTL is exceeded. Switch_A will reply with the MAC address of the Router_1 E0 interface.) .

) the max-age timer the spanning-tree hold down timer the forward delay the spanning-tree path cost the blocking delay 7 Refer to the exhibit. S4 is already the root bridge. so there are no port changes. 8What three link types have been defined for Rapid Spanning-Tree Protocol? (Choose three.) shared end-to-end edge-type boundary-type point-to-many point-to-point 9 Which two items are true regarding the spanning-tree portfast command? (Choose two. Gi0/2 on S3 transitions to a root port. What is the effect of the command? Spanning tree blocks Gi0/1 on S3. The spanning-tree port priority of each interface is at the default setting. The network administrator enters the spanning-tree vlan 1 root primary command on S4. Port priority makes Gi0/2 on S1 a root port.) .to negotiate a trunk between switches to set the duplex mode of a redundant link to identify the shortest path to the root bridge to prevent loops by sharing bridging tables between connected switches to determine which ports will forward frames as part of the spanning tree 6What two features of the Spanning-Tree Protocol contribute to the time it takes for a switched network to converge after a topology change occurs? (Choose two.

STP port states are independent of port roles.) They are sent out by the root bridge only after the inferior BPDUs are sent. STP has been disabled on . 1 4 Refer to the exhibit. PortFast can negatively effect DHCP services.PortFast is Cisco proprietary. PortFast is used to more quickly prevent and eliminate bridging loops. 1 What is the first step in the process of convergence in a spanning tree topology? election of the root bridge 2 blocking of the non-designated ports selection of the designated trunk port determination of the designated port for each segment 13 Which statement or set of paired statements correctly compares STP with RSTP? STP and RSTP have the same BPDU format and flag field information. RSTP has only root ports. 0 1 Which two criteria does a switch use to select the root bridge? (Choose two. and designated ports. They consist of a bridge priority and MAC address. The switch with the fastest processor will have the lowest BID. STP specifies backup ports. If an access port is configured with PortFast. STP waits for the network to converge before placing ports into forwarding state. Enabling PortFast on trunks that connect to other switches improves convergence. RSTP ties together the port state and port role.) bridge priority switching speed number of ports base MAC address switch location memory size 11 Which two statements describe the BIDs used in a spanning tree topology? (Choose two. They are used by the switches in a spanning tree topology to elect the root bridge. it immediately transitions from a blocking to a forwarding state. RSTP places designated ports into forwarding state immediately. Only the root bridge will send out a BID. All switches in the network have empty MAC tables. alternate ports.

Root switches have all ports set as root ports. 16 1 When PVST+ was developed. Decisions on which port to block when two ports have equal cost depend on the port priority and identity. Assign a lower IP address to the switch than that of the other switches in the network. Switch SW1 will forward the broadcast out all switch ports. All trunking ports are designated and not blocked. How will a broadcast frame that is sent by host PC1 be handled on the network? Switch SW1 will block the broadcast and drop the frame. This will generate an endless loop in the network. Switch SW1 will forward the broadcast out all switch ports. 1 9 . except the originating port.) immediately loses its edge status inhibits the generation of a TCN goes immediately to a learning state disables itself becomes a normal spanning-tree port How can a network administrator influence which STP switch becomes the root bridge? Configure all the interfaces on the switch as the static root ports.the switches in the network.) The root switch is the switch with the highest speed ports. except the originating port. the Bridge ID was modified to include which information? bridge priority 7 MAC address protocol VLAN ID 18 Which two statements are true about the default operation of STP in a Layer 2 switched environment that has redundant connections between switches? (Choose two. Switch SW1 will forward the traffic out all switch ports except the originating port as a unicast frame. All hosts in the network will reply with a unicast frame sent to switch SW1. All hosts in the network will reply with a unicast frame sent to host PC1. 15 Which two actions does an RSTP edge port take if it receives a BPDU? (Choose two. Set the switch priority to a smaller value than that of the other switches in the network. Change the BPDU to a lower value than that of the other switches in the network. Non-root switches each have only one root port.

Refer to the exhibit. The priority was statically configured to identify the root. Configuration commands to establish primary and secondary root bridges are identical for STP and RSTP. Because of the format of the BPDU packet.) RSTP uses a faster algorithm to determine root ports. 3-Chapter 6 1 . STP is disabled on this switch. Both RSTP and STP use the portfast command to allow ports to immediately transition to forwarding state. 20 Which three statements are accurate regarding RSTP and STP? (Choose three. Like STP PortFast. an RSTP edge port that receives a BPDU loses its edge port status immediately and becomes a normal spanning-tree port. What can be determined from the output shown? Two hosts communicating between ports Fa0/2 and Fa0/4 have a cost of 38. RSTP is backward compatible with STP. RSTP introduced the extended system ID to allow for more than 4096 VLANs. The timers have been altered to reduce convergence time.

0/28 and 192. The packet destination address is 192. The F0/0 and F0/1 interfaces on R1 must be configured as trunks.0/28. but cannot ping PC3.168. The router will forward the packet out interface FastEthernet 0/1.1. 3 . What is causing this failure? PC1 and PC3 are not in the same VLAN. The router will forward the packet out interface FastEthernet 0/1. R1 is routing between networks 192.168.2 tagged for VLAN 60. What will the router do with this packet? The router will forward the packet out interface FastEthernet 0/1. The router will drop the packet since no network that includes the source address is attached to the router. The commands for a router to connect to a trunked uplink are shown in the exhibit.10.168.Refer to the exhibit.54.120. The router will not process the packet since the source and destination are on the same subnet. The PC3 network address configuration is incorrect.1 tagged for VLAN 10.30. 2 Refer to the exhibit.168.1. A packet is received from IP address 192.3 tagged for VLAN 120. The S1 interface F0/11 should be assigned to VLAN30. PC1 can ping R1 interface F0/1.

FastEthernet0/0. The VLAN IDs do not match the subinterface numbers. was not configured with an IP address. All of the subinterface addresses on the router are in the same subnet. 4 . Switch1 is correctly configured for the VLANs that are displayed in the graphic. the administrator logged the following report: Hosts within each VLAN can communicate with each other. Why are hosts connected to Fa0/1 through Fa0/5 unable to communicate with hosts in different VLANs? The router interface is shut down.Refer to the exhibit. The router was not configured to forward traffic for VLAN2. The configuration that is shown was applied to RTA to allow for interVLAN connectivity between hosts attached to Switch1. After testing the network. Hosts in VLAN5 and VLAN33 are able to communicate with each other. Hosts connected to Fa0/1 through Fa0/5 do not have connectivity to host in other VLANs. The physical interface.

When traditional inter-VLAN routing is in use. the router returns the MAC address of the physical interface in response to ARP requests. devices on all VLANs use the same physical router interface as their source of proxy ARP responses.3 interface is incorrect. 5 Which three elements must be used when configuring a router interface for VLAN trunking? (Choose three.1 are on different subnets. each subinterface has a separate MAC address to send in response to ARP requests. 7 . The encapsulation command on the R1 F0/0. What could account for this failure? PC1 and R1 interface F0/0. An IP address has not been assigned to the R1 physical interface. PC1 has attempted to ping PC2 but has been unsuccessful.) one subinterface per VLAN one physical interface for each subinterface one IP network or subnetwork for each subinterface one trunked link per VLAN a management domain for each subinterface a compatible trunking protocol encapsulation for each subinterface 6Which statement is true about ARP when inter-VLAN routing is being used on the network? When router-on-a-stick inter-VLAN routing is in use. When router-on-a-stick inter-VLAN routing is in use. When VLANs are in use.Refer to the exhibit. the switch responds to ARP requests with the MAC address of the port to which the PC is connected. The encapsulation is missing on the R1 interface F0/0.

1q protocol on the links between the switch and the router. . The router merges the VLANs into a single broadcast domain. but inter-VLAN routing does not work. This design uses more switch and router ports than are necessary. 8 Refer to the exhibit. Which three statements describe the network design shown in the exhibit? (Choose three. Port 0/4 is using the wrong trunking protocol. This design requires the use of the ISL or 802. Port 0/4 is not a member of VLAN1.Refer to the exhibit. The network administrator correctly configures RTA to perform inter-VLAN routing. Port 0/4 is configured in access mode.) This design will not scale easily. the devices on the different VLANs can communicate through the router. The administrator connects RTA to port 0/4 on SW2. This design exceeds the maximum number of VLANs that can be attached to a switch. What could be the possible cause of the problem with the SW2 configuration? Port 0/4 is not active. If the physical interfaces between the switch and router are operational.

9 In which situation could individual router physical interfaces be used for InterVLAN routing.10 command? (Choose two. . depending on the VLAN from which the traffic originated. Traffic inbound on this router is processed by different subinterfaces. Which two statements are true about the operation of the subinterfaces? (Choose two. 11 Which two statements are true about the interface fa0/0. The command is used in the configuration of router-on-a-stick inter-VLAN routing. instead of a router-on-a-stick configuration? a network with more than 100 subnetworks a network with a limited number of VLANs a network with experienced support personnel a network using a router with one LAN interface 1 0 Refer to the exhibit. The command configures a subinterface. Subinterfaces use unique MAC addresses by adding the 802. Reliability of both subinterfaces is poor because ARP is timing out. Incoming traffic with VLAN ID 0 is processed by interface fa0/0. even if fa0/0 line protocol is down.1Q VLAN ID to the hardware address.) Incoming traffic that has a VLAN ID of 2 is processed by subinterface fa0/0.) The command applies VLAN 10 to router interface fa0/0.2. Both subinterfaces remain up with line protocol up.

Traditional routing uses multiple paths to the router and therefore requires STP. Add a second router to handle the inter-VLAN traffic. Because the IP address is applied to the physical interface. Router-on-a-stick uses subinterfaces to connect multiple logical networks to a single router port. Interconnect the VLANs via the two additional FastEthernet interfaces. and ports 0/9 to 0/12 are assigned to VLAN 30.The command configures interface fa0/0 as a trunk link. 2 1 What distinguishes traditional routing from router-on-a-stick? Traditional routing is only able to use a single switch interface. the command does not include an IP address. Obtain a router with multiple LAN interfaces and configure each interface for a separate subnet. . Add a router to the topology and configure one FastEthernet interface on the router with multiple subinterfaces for VLANs 1. 15 Refer to the exhibit. and configure the router physical interface with an IP address on the native VLAN. Use a hub to connect the four VLANS with a FastEthernet interface on the router. Both of the directly connected routes that are shown will share the same physical interface of the router. thereby allowing communication between VLANs. Devices on the network are connected to a 24-port Layer 2 switch that is configured with VLANs. 13 1 A router has two FastEthernet interfaces and needs to connect to four VLANs in the local network. Router-on-astick does not provide multiple connections and therefore eliminates the need for STP. 20. Router-on-a-stick can use multiple switch interfaces. Traditional routing uses one port per logical network. How can this be accomplished using the fewest number of physical interfaces without unnecessarily 4 decreasing network performance? Implement a router-on-a-stick configuration. Switch ports 0/2 to 0/4 are assigned to VLAN 10. Which solution allows all VLANs to communicate between each other while minimizing the number of ports necessary to connect the VLANs? Configure ports 0/13 to 0/16 with the appropriate IP addresses to perform routing between VLANs. What two conclusions can be drawn from the output that is shown? (Choose two. 10. Ports 0/5 to 0/8 are assigned to VLAN 20. Traditional routing requires a routing protocol. All other ports are assigned to the default VLAN.) The no shutdown command has not been issued on the FastEthernet 0/0 interface. Obtain a Layer 3 switch and configure a trunk link between the switch and router. and 30. A routing protocol must be configured on the network in order for the inter-VLAN routing to be successful. Router-on-a-stick only needs to route directly connected networks.

S1 interface F0/6 needs to be configured for operation in VLAN10. PC2 cannot ping PC1.0/24 networks is successful on this network. S1 port F0/6 is not in VLAN10. S1 interface F0/8 is in the wrong VLAN. 1 7 Refer to the exhibit. What might be the reason for this failure? R1 interface F0/1 has not been configured for subinterface operation. Create the VLANs on the router and define the port membership assignments on the switch. PC2 can successfully ping the F0/0 interface on R1. 16 What are the steps which must be completed in order to enable inter-VLAN routing using router-ona-stick? Configure the physical interfaces on the router and enable a routing protocol.30.17.17.Inter-VLAN routing between hosts on the 172. All devices are configured as shown in the exhibit. Hosts in this network must be configured with the IP address that is assigned to the router physical interface as their default gateway. Create the VLANs on the switch to include port membership assignment and configure subinterfaces on the router matching the VLANs.0/24 and 172. 18 . Create the VLANs on the switch to include port membership assignment and enable a routing protocol on the router.10.

The subinterfaces on R1 have not been brought up with the no shutdown command yet. What is the likely problem? R1 is configured for router-on-a-stick. 20 What two statements are true regarding the use of subinterfaces for inter-VLAN routing? (Choose two. the network administrator determines that the devices on VLAN 2 are unable to ping the devices on VLAN 1. but S1 is not configured for trunking. The IP address of each subinterface must be the default gateway address for each VLAN subnet. The subinterface numbers must match the VLAN ID number.) . 1 What is important to consider while configuring the subinterfaces of a router when implementing inter-VLAN routing? 9 The physical interface must have an IP address configured.) subinterfaces have no contention for bandwidth more switch ports required than in traditional inter-VLAN routing fewer router ports required than in traditional inter-VLAN routing simpler Layer 3 troubleshooting than with traditional inter-VLAN routing less complex physical connection than in traditional inter-VLAN routing 3-Chapter 7 1 Which access method does a wireless access point use to allow for multiple user connectivity and distributed access? CSMA/CD token passing CSMA/CA polling 2 Which two statements concerning network security are accurate? (Choose two. The no shutdown command must be given on each subinterface.Refer to the exhibit. Port Fa0/0 on router R1 is connected to port Fa0/1 on switch S1. After the commands shown are entered on both devices. Spanning Tree Protocol is blocking port Fa0/0 on R1. R1 does not have the VLANs entered in the VLAN database.

Enable access points to send an SSID to each device wanting to use the network. Open authentication uses no client or AP verification. 4 Refer to the exhibit. 3 What procedure can prevent man-in-the-middle attacks? Force all devices on a WLAN to authenticate and monitor for any unknown devices.11i uses 3DES for encryption. which setting does the network administrator use to configure the unique identifier that client devices use to distinguish this wireless network from others? . Disable SSID broadcasts.802.11i protocol is functionally identical to WPA. When configuring the wireless access point. Configure MAC filtering on all authorized access points. The 802. 802. A wireless client first associates with an AP and then authenticates for network access.11i incorporates a RADIUS server for enterprise authentication.

What is the first step in designing a solution to this problem? This might be RF channel overlap. Wireless networks broadcast data over a medium that allows easy access. Manually adding a network and setting the known SSID on a wireless client makes the network visible even if the SSID is not being broadcast. Default SSIDs on specific manufacturer APs are generally known and may permit hostile wireless connections. so the technician should verify the channels in use on each wireless access point and change to non-overlapping channels. Televisions and other devices can interfere with wireless signals. Install a new wireless access point in this center area to provide coverage. Moving away from this area in any direction improves performance dramatically. 7 What purpose does authentication serve in a WLAN? converts clear text data before transmission indicates which channel the data should flow on determines that the correct host is utilizing the network allows the host to choose which channel to use 8 Which two statements are true regarding wireless security? (Choose two. Providing a wireless client with the network key allows an available network to be visible.) MAC address filtering prevents the contents of wireless frames from being viewable. Increase the RF output power on all wireless access points. Environmental factors such as thunderstorms can affect wireless networks. The RF power settings might be set too low on the wireless access points servicing the room.Network Mode Network Name (SSID) Radio Band Wide Channel Standard Channel 5 Why is security so important in wireless networks? Wireless networks are typically slower than wired networks. Verify that the wireless access points have sufficient in-line power and connectivity to the wired network. Disabling an access point from broadcasting the SSID prevents the access point from being discovered. 6 Wireless users on a network complain about poor performance within a small area of a room. .

" What can be determined from the output shown? The enable password is encrypted by default. The enable password on this switch is "cisco. The network administrator has decided to allow only Secure Shell connections to Switch1. The hosts extend their delay period to allow for rapid transmission.Refer to the exhibit. The hosts creating the collision retransmit the last 16 frames. An MD5 hashing algorithm was used on all encrypted passwords. After the commands are applied. The hosts creating the collision have priority to send data. Any configured line mode passwords will be encrypted in this configuration. This line represents most secure privileged EXEC mode password possible. 4 Refer to the exhibit. the administrator is able to connect to Switch1 using both Secure Shell and Telnet. What is most likely the problem? incorrect vty lines configured incorrect default gateway address incompatible Secure Shell version missing transport input ssh command . The exhibit shows partial output of the show running-config command. 3 When a collision occurs in a network using CSMA/CD. how do hosts with data to transmit respond after the backoff period has expired? The hosts return to a listen-before-transmit mode.

What can the administrator do to get the parameter information? append ? to the last parameter append a space and then ? to the last parameter use Ctrl-P to show a parameter list use the Tab key to show which options are available 9 What are two ways to make a switch less vulnerable to attacks like MAC address flooding. Best practices require both the enable password and enable secret password to be configured and used simultaneously. 8 A network administrator uses the CLI to enter a command that requires several parameters. 7 When a switch receives a frame and the source MAC address is not found in the switching table. and Telnet attacks? . what action will be taken by the switch to process the incoming frame? The switch will request that the sending node resend the frame. 6 Which two statements are true about EXEC mode passwords? (Choose two.) The enable secret password command stores the configured password in plain text. Communication between the switch and remote users is encrypted. The service password-encryption command is required to encrypt the enable secret password. CDP attacks. The switch ends an acknowledgement frame to the source MAC of this incoming frame. A username/password combination is no longer needed to establish a secure remote connection to the switch. The switch requires remote connections via proprietary client software. The enable password and enable secret password protect access to privileged EXEC mode.vty lines that are configured to allow only Telnet 5 What happens when the transport input ssh command is entered on the switch vty lines? The SSH client on the switch is enabled. The switch responds with "% Incomplete command". The switch will issue an ARP request to confirm that the source exists. The enable secret password command provides better security than the enable password. The administrator cannot remember the missing parameters. The switch will map the source MAC address to the port on which it was received.

11 Refer to the exhibit. except port Fa0/1. Change passwords regularly. SW1 uses the CDP protocol to synchronize the MAC tables on both switches and then forwards the frame to all ports on SW2. 10 Refer to the exhibit. What action does SW1 take on a frame sent from PC_A to PC_C if the MAC address table of SW1 is empty? SW1 drops the frame. Turn off unnecessary services. Enable the HTTP server on the switch. Use the enable password rather than the enable secret password. What happens when Host 1 attempts to send data? .) Enable CDP on the switch.(Choose two. except Fa0/23 and Fa0/1. SW1 floods the frame on all ports on the switch. SW1 floods the frame on all ports on SW1.

only MAC addresses subsequently learned are converted to secure MAC addresses. 14 . How many collision domains are depicted in the network? 1 2 4 6 7 8 13 Which two statements are true regarding switch port security? (Choose two. 12 Refer to the exhibit. The three configurable violation modes all require user intervention to re-enable ports.Frames from Host 1 cause the interface to shut down. Frames from Host 1 are dropped and no log message is sent. If fewer than the maximum number of MAC addresses for a port are configured statically.) The three configurable violation modes all log violations via SNMP. Dynamically learned secure MAC addresses are lost when the switch reboots. dynamically learned addresses are added to CAM until the maximum number is reached. Frames from Host 1 create a MAC address entry in the running-config. Frames from Host 1 will remove all MAC address entries in the address table. After entering the sticky parameter.

and E hosts A. E. Which of the hosts will capture a copy of the frame when workstation A sends a unicast packet to workstation C? workstation C . and F 15 Where is the startup configuration stored?

Layer 2 switches route traffic between different networks. and the interfaces of the router workstations B. C. Which statement accurately reflects the operation of this link? No collisions will occur on this link. .

The command will cause the message Authorized personnel Only to display before a user logs in. VLAN 1 can not be deleted until all ports have been removed from it. 3 Chapter 3 1 A network administrator is removing several VLANs from a switch. The command will cause the message End with the character “%” to be displayed after the command is entered into the switch.dat file. Why did this command generate an error? VLAN 1 can never be deleted. The command will generate the error message % Ambiguous command: "banner motd" ” to be displayed. VLAN 1 can not be deleted until another VLAN has been assigned its responsibilities.Layer 2 switches decrease the number of broadcast domains. 20 Which statement is true about the command banner login "Authorized personnel Only" issued on a switch? The command is entered in privileged EXEC mode. The router is not properly configured to route traffic between the VLANs. VLAN 1 can only be deleted by deleting the vlan. . What is the most likely cause of this problem? The link between the switches is up but not trunked. VLAN 3 is not an allowed VLAN to enter the trunk between the switches. 3 The network administrator wants to separate hosts in Building A into two VLANs numbered 20 and 30. Computer D does not have a proper address for the VLAN 3 address space. 2 Refer to the exhibit. Computer B is unable to communicate with computer D. When the administrator enters the no vlan 1 command. Layer 2 switches can send traffic based on the destination MAC address. an error is received.

Both VLANs may be named BUILDING_A to distinguish them from other VLANs in different geographical locations. computer C. computer I 5 Refer to the exhibit. SW1 and SW2 are new switches being installed in the topology shown in the exhibit. How far is a broadcast frame that is sent by computer A propagated in the LAN domain? none of the computers will receive the broadcast frame computer A. computer D.

(Choose two. computer G. . computer C computer D. Which statement is true about forming a trunk link between the switches SW1 and SW2? Interface Fa0/2 on switch SW2 will negotiate to become a trunk link if it supports DTP.

VLANs improve network security by isolating users that have access to sensitive data and applications. A trunk connection is affected by broadcast storms on any particular VLAN that is carried by that trunk. D. 7 Refer to the exhibit. D. B A. A trunk link is formed if the remote connected device is configured with the switchport mode dynamic auto or switchport mode trunk commands. 6What is a valid consideration for planning VLAN traffic across multiple switches? Configuring interswitch connections as trunks will cause all hosts on any VLAN to receive broadcasts from the other VLANs. F 8Which two statements describe the benefits of VLANs? (Choose two. E. On which links along the path between computer 1 and computer 4 will a VLAN ID tag be included with the frame? A A. VLANs enable switches to route packets to remote networks via VLAN ID filtering. Carrying all required VLANs on a single access port will ensure proper traffic separation. B. Restricting trunk connections between switches to a single VLAN will improve efficiency of port usage. E C. F C. 9 What is the effect of the switchport mode dynamic desirable command? DTP cannot negotiate the trunk since the native VLAN is not the default VLAN.Interface Fa0/1 converts the neighboring link on the adjacent switch into a trunk link if the neighboring interface is configured in nonegotiate mode. VLANs reduce network cost by reducing the number of physical ports required on switches. resulting in lower susceptibility to broadcast storms. Computer 1 sends a frame to computer 4. . The connected devices dynamically determine when data for multiple VLANs must be transmitted across the link and bring the trunk up as needed. The remote connected interface cannot negotiate a trunk unless it is also configured as dynamic desirable. Interface Fa0/1 converts the neighboring link on the adjacent switch into a trunk link automatically with no consideration of the configuration on the neighboring interface. VLANs divide a network into smaller logical networks. G A.) VLANs improve network performance by regulating flow control and window size.

PC4 must use the same subnet as PC1. a specialized application workstation. connected via a trunk link to S2.11. 11 . The company will add a switch. another switch.0/24 subnet.17.1 0 Refer to the exhibit. The new PC is on a different subnet so Fa0/2 on S3 must be configured as a trunk port. VLAN 10. to a new company office. users on PC1 are unable to access shares on PC4. What is the likely cause? The switch to switch connection must be configured as an access port to permit access to VLAN 10 on S3. After installation. Company HR is adding PC4. The new office will use the 172. A single VLAN cannot span multiple switches. S3. For security reasons the new PC will reside in the HR VLAN.

but not with computer C or computer D. Computer A can communicate with computer B. Delete any VLANs currently being trunked through port Fa0/1. The router is not properly configured for inter-VLAN routing. VLAN 50 is not allowed to entering the trunk between Switch1 and Switch2. 2 VLAN 1 is the management VLAN.1. 13 Switch port fa0/1 was manually configured as a trunk.0/24 subnet range. 4 15 Refer to the exhibit. Mo Hosts on different VLANs examine VLAN ID in the frame tagging to determine if the frame for their network. Hosts on different VLANs should be in the same IP network. 16 . 1 What statements describe how hosts on VLANs communicate? Hosts on different VLANs use VTP to negotiate a trunk. Only switch port 0/1 is assigned to VLAN1. Hosts on different VLANs communicate through routers. All switch ports are members of VLAN1. The network administrator has just added VLAN 50 to Switch1 and Switch2 and assigned hosts on the IP addresses of the VLAN in the 10. The trunking mode is set to auto. The link between Switch1 and Switch2 is up but not trunked. Links between switches must be members of VLAN1. VLAN information about the interface encapsulates the Ethernet frames. but now it will be used to connect a host to the network. Administratively shut down and re-enable the interface to return it to default.) VLAN1 should renamed. Trunking can occur with non-Cisco switches. Enter the switchport mode access command in interface configuration mode. What is the most likely cause of this problem? There is a native VLAN mismatch.Refer to the exhibit. Which statement is true concerning interface Fa0/5? The default native VLAN is being used. 1 What are two characteristics of VLAN1 in a default switch configuration? (Choose two.50. How should the network administrator reconfigure switch port Fa0/1? Disable DTP.

A common native VLAN should have been configured on the switches. What is the most likely cause of this problem? Cisco switches only support the ISL trunking protocol. The exhibited configurations do not allow the switches to form a trunk. or dynamic desirable mode on. auto. 9 .Refer to the exhibit. They then become members of the management VLAN. dynamic desirable. Switch1 will only allow VLAN 5 across the link. The ports remain a part of that VLAN until the switch is rebooted. auto. 1 What happens to the member ports of a VLAN when the VLAN is deleted? The ports cannot communicate with other ports. 1 What switch port modes will allow a switch to successfully form a trunking link if the neighboring switch port is in "dynamic desirable" mode? 7 dynamic desirable mode on or dynamic desirable mode on. or nonegotiate mode 18 What must the network administrator do to remove Fast Ethernet port fa0/1 from VLAN 2 and assign it to VLAN 3? Enter the no vlan 2 and the vlan 3 commands in global configuration mode. By default. Enter the switchport trunk native vlan 3 command in interface configuration mode. Enter the no shutdown in interface configuration mode to return it to the default configuration and then configure the port for VLAN 3. The ports default back to the management VLAN. The ports automatically become a part of VLAN1. Enter the switchport access vlan 3 command in interface configuration mode. The trunk cannot be negotiated with both ends set to auto.

Which two conclusions can be drawn regarding the switch that produced the output shown? (Choose two. 802.1q trunking protocol is true? 802.1q is Cisco proprietary. 802. . Devices attached to ports fa0/5 through fa0/8 cannot communicate with devices attached to ports fa0/9 through fa0/12 without the use of a Layer 3 device. A FDDI trunk has been configured on this switch. The VLANs are in the active state and are in the process of negotiating configuration parameters. 1 802.1q frames are mapped to VLANs by MAC address.) The network administrator configured VLANs 1002-1005. 2 What statement about the 802.1q does NOT require the FCS of the original frame to be recalculated.1q will not perform operations on frames that are forwarded out access ports. The command switchport access vlan 20 was entered in interface configuration mode for Fast Ethernet interface 0/1.20 Refer to the exhibit.
