VTPv3 Sim

February 11th, 2017 in Lab Sim Go to comments

You have been asked to install and configure a new switch in a customer network. Use the console access to the existing and new switches to configure and verify correct device configuration.


Question 1


To comply with the configuration of other switches, we need to get VTP configuration of Sw1 or Sw2. On Sw1 use the “show vtp status” command:


From this output we learn on Sw1:
+ VTP is running version 3
+ VTP Domain is “CCNP”
+ Sw1 is the VTP Primary Server (we will explain about Primary Server later. Now just understand it is in VTP Server mode)

So on the New_Switch, the VTP Domain must match. New_Switch should run VTP version 3 if if can (but it is not a must as VTP version 2 is compatible with VTP version 3). The New_Switch is connecting to hosts so it is in Access Layer so it should be configured as a VTP Client (although Transparent mode is acceptable) so there are only two suitable choices D & E.

From the exhibit, the New_Switch is connecting to a host in VLAN 100 so its E0/0 interface should be in VLAN 100 -> only D is correct.

Question 2


On Sw1 & Sw2 we can check with the “show interfaces trunk” command:



Sw1 & Sw2 are connected through E2/3 & E2/3 so we can see the native Vlan on these trunks are 99. We should check both Sw1 & Sw2 to see if the Native Vlan on both sides match.

Question 3


Use the “show vtp status” on SW1 and SW2 we notice both of them are in “Server” mode so we should choose: A. Configure VLAN 500 & VLAN 600 on both SW1 & SW2.

In practical we only need to create VLANs on one of the “Server” switch and these VLANs will be propagated automatically to others “Server” and “Client” switch. But maybe it is not the answer Cisco wants (as it makes both answers B & C are correct).

Question 4


To configure private VLAN we have to change VTP (even version 3) to Transparent mode. In fact, to disable VTP pruning on Sw4 (in Client mode) we also have to change to VTP Transparent mode so answer C can be understood as “change SW4 to Transparent mode” so it is the best choice.

Note: Unlike VTP version 1 and 2 in which VTP pruning is enabled on VTP Server only, VTP version 3 requires VTP pruning must be enabled on all the switches in the VTP domain so we can also disable VTP pruning on each switch separately. Here is the link for your reference: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750x_3560x/software/release/12-2_55_se/configuration/guide/3750xscg/swvtp.html

“With VTP versions 1 and 2, when you enable pruning on the VTP server, it is enabled for the entire VTP domain. In VTP version 3, you must manually enable pruning on each switch in the domain.”

    A few people have posted the same thing now, I also see no questions?

    I see the word Question x in red then Explanation in green with the answer but no actual question.

    Are the questions on another page somewhere or do you have to download the packet tracer files to get them?

    Could anyone please kindly send me valid 300-101,300-105 and 300-135 dump. Vce or PDFs

    passed today.

    40 questions
    drag / drop CDP

    VTP sim / diagram
    diagram above [but NOT same questions]
    * what is virtual MAC
    *What percentage of traffic on R1 100% [Cause R1 is the active ]

    in this section, i found confusing, but gave serious thoughts and came to the conclusion for the first one. [ “a” below, dont remember b or d ], show stand, and you see in E0/1 on R1 which is the ACTIVE router ! what will happen if E0/1 goes down ?
    *if E0/1 went down and recovered:
    a -the percentage of the E0/1 value will be decremented to 40
    b- bla bla bla bla
    c- the percentage of the current E0/1 will be incremented to 40
    d- bla bla bla

    Another thing to note in the exam is that the ANSWERS are not in the same position as in the 191q or other dumps!!! My goodness, i prepared and read the questions… at first glance, it seemed as if i was they changed the questions!! but took my time to read slowly, 2x the answers and found out they were same. [some questions, not all ]

    since this is fresh in my head now, another point to make:

    SIM with AAA

    *Frankly, the only area i got stuck “thinking”, “thinking” is the mention of:
    HOSTS of subnet /24 only on vlan 20 should be allowed

    * well during configuration of aaa and so on, no issue. But when i came to the DSW1 and configuring the access list..i got stuck, thinking: [ here is my point ]
    access-list standard 10
    permit ip address
    {right here was my problem, remember they said host in}
    {if you put a context sensitive help. “?” infront of the ip above, it ask for WILDCARD BITS }

    permit ip address ?
    A.B.C.D Wildcard bits

    {if you hit enter will it accept the 172 .140.x.x range or 172.140.46.x range ?} AHA!

    I choosed :
    access-list standard 10
    permit ip address [24 bit mask ]

    vlan access=map PASS10 10
    match ip address 10
    action forward

    vlan access-map PASS10 20
    action drop

    vlan filter PASS10 vlan-list 20
    copy run start [SAVE| !!

    personal advice:
    i was in a very tight budget, i read about people going for second try etc.. goodness!
    i was in an airconditioned room for the exam and sweating !!! if you i hit continue without being sure, i could loose it [ 250$] ! , i took my time and rushed through the Q & A that came as in dump and when the LABS came, i got lot time to play with, plus i decided to practice with real equipments before exam.

    scored 9xx

    – .. . ……90%
    infrasctructure securtiy 100 %
    – – – — – -86%

    * any question: im ready to give back, please ask.

    Thanks for sharing your experience! According to your post, are there new question in the HSRP Sim? Is there a new lab and is the VTP Sim? When you are talking about config in physical interfaces, I think your are referring to LACP-STP lab but after that you start to talk about AAA Sim. Just please clarify, because some of us are confused.
    Thanks man!

    On question 1 sim above, to get all of the correct information, you need to execute the “show vtp password” command in addition to the “show vtp status” command because the vtp password is not shown in the output of the “show vtp status” command.

    VTP version 3 is able to publish private vlan information. You do not need to set vtp version 3 to transparant mode: https://networklessons.com/switching/vtp-version-3/

    question 3, are you sure you have to Configure VLAN 500 and VLAN 600 on SW1 only
    and not Configure VLAN 500 VLAN 600 on both SW1 SW2?

  33. need2passforsure
    August 15th, 2016

    Can somebody please clarify this? I’m having problems on this.

    Question 3

    You are adding new VLANs: VLAN500 and VLAN600 to the topology in such way that you need to configure SW1 as primary root for VLAN 500 and secondary for VLAN 600 and SW2 as primary root for VLAN 600 and secondary for VLAN 500. Which configuration step is valid?
    A. Configure VLAN 500 & VLAN 600 on both SW1 & SW2
    B. Configure VLAN 500 and VLAN 600 on SW1 only
    C. Configure VLAN 500 and VLAN 600 on SW2 only
    D. Configure VLAN 500 and VLAN 600 on SW1 ,SW2 and SW4
    E. On SW2; configure vtp mode as off and configure VLAN 500 and VLAN 600; configure back to vtp server mode.

    Answer: B <—–isn't it suppose to be A? I've seen in a lot of dumps that it is A.

    I hope someone can clarify this. Thank you.

    I believe You are right & the above answer is wrong
    To answer any question, first we need to understand what the question wants or what it’s looking for. I think the only way to do this is as follows:

    SW1(config)# Spanning-tree vlan 500 root primary
    SW1(config)# Spanning-tree vlan 600 root secondary

    SW2(config)# Spanning-tree vlan 600 root primary
    SW2(config)# Spanning-tree vlan 500 root secondary

    As you see, the only way to do this is to config both switches. Yes VTP does propagate messages to all switches, but how come you config the last 2 lines withOUT touching SW2!?

    TO need2passforsure, be careful when u read the question, it says witch “CONFIGURATION STEP” is valid…SO…all the answers are about creating vlans…so u have VTP activated and u have to configure it just in the PRIMARY SERVER (SW1) …So there u go. (Answer B)
