TroubleShooting Lab Challenge 3 (Switch Basic)

August 28th, 2015 Go to comments

You have just been recruited to the TUT company. Recently your company has just setup a new network with five switches and three routers. Unfortunately, the network administrator forgot to write interface labels for the topology. You are only allowed to access the Command Line Interface (CLI) of Sw3. Use various “show” commands to answer the questions.

Note: You are not allowed to configure anything by company policy. So just use various “show” commands to find out the answers.

    by the way..
    the question about VTP is kindly wrong! because if we connect the new switch ( switch X) with (switch 3) and they have the same VLAN’s names ( as its config saying that ) ,the vlans won’t update due to similarity in its names …(i try this in packet tracer)

    I know some of the CLI problems were from 2 years ago… but no one really explained what the problem was or how it was fixed… I also experienced issues with the CLI, and I think it was because I clicked in the “results” box by accident instead of the “input” box. That consistently freezes the CLI. Whatever I type, there are no results at all. I tried refreshing the window to no avail. I have to simply close out that window, re-click on the original lab link… and good to go. The questions remain in their respective window… don’t have to touch that one, it will stay on the question you are on… and the topology window remains as is. Just close the window with the CLIs, and reopen with the original link. The CLI will be restored and working fine again. Easy as that.

    How come “The VLANs Singers, Artists and Composers will be removed from existing switches” is the answer though the New_Switch with a higher revision number also has the same VLANs in its configuration….

    Wont they just be updated????

    For Q5 right answer is “The VLANs Singers, Artists and Composers will present in both switches”. Vlans on VTP servers or clients which are inferior to new VTP server with higher configuration REVISION NUMBER will be updated! All vlans would be like on new VTP Server (deleted if needed)! You can make a lab in Packet Tracer and check it yourself (recommend you do it).
