Finally knocked out the CCIE: R/S Written Exam!! The countdown has begun I’ve got 18 months to go pass the lab or I’ll be taking the written again!
If you’ve been following I’ve been studying for the CCIE: R/S for around a year now so the trek continues!
Now back to Cisco Live I go!!
Looks like it’s time to start my drive to Orlando! I’m all packed and ready to go, got my iPad (with keyboard) so let’s see if I can get some blogging done in the midst of going between sessions and all the new announcements! (CCIE: R/S v5 especially!!)
I’ll probably be doing a fair amount of Twitter so feel free to follow and follow along – @StepehnO86
So last week (Well actually months ago at this point) I was helping out one of buddies who is working on his ROUTE exam and he was working through an EIGRP load sharing lab involving the variance command and interface metrics, after I read through the lab and looked at the requirements I came up with a completely different way to complete lab then what was expected. So I figured I would alter the lab and post it up here:
- You want R1 to load share over links Serial0/0 and Serial0/1 that connect to R2 to reach the 18.104.22.168 /32 prefix on R3.
- You cannot make any configuration changes to R1.
- You cannot create any static routes.
- You cannot create any additional interfaces.
- You cannot configure any additional routing protocols. (IE: OSPF, BGP, etc)
- You cannot change any AS types.
- You cannot change which EIGRP ‘k’ values are being used.
- You cannot change any of the metrics on the existing interfaces.
- The solution must involve EIGRP.
You can download the starting configurations here:
There is also a GNS3 .Net file included in there as well.
