Status Update

Here are some thoughts on the status for my preparations for mock lab #2.

I now understand:
  • How to set cost and port priority for mstp
  • BGP address families
  • ip forward-protocol
  • ospf demand routing
  • ospf authentication null
  • bgp next-hop-self
  • bgp cluster-id
  • police cir

I've changed my strategy as follows:

  • I now make a detailed L2 diagram
  • I now make a loopback checklist
  • I now add multicast information to the L3 diagram
  • I now use 10 telnet windows instead of a single console

I'm still weak with:

  • attention to detail
  • verification plan
  • multicast troubleshooting
  • Catalyst QoS
