Question

You work for SWITCH.com. They have just added a new switch (SwitchB) to the existing network as shown in the topology diagram.

LACP_STP_topology.jpg

RouterA is currently configured correctly and is providing the routing function for devices on SwitchA and SwitchB. SwitchA is currently configured correctly, but will need to be modified to support the addition of SwitchB. SwitchB has a minimal configuration. You have been tasked with competing the needed configuring of SwitchA and SwitchB. SwitchA and SwitchB use Cisco as the enable password.

Configuration Requirements for SwitchA

– The VTP and STP configuration modes on SwitchA should not be modified.
– SwitchA needs to be the root switch for vlans 11, 12, 13, 21, 22 and 23. All other vlans should be left are their default values.

Configuration Requirements for SwitchB

– Vlan 21, Name: Marketing, will support two servers attached to fa0/9 and fa0/10
– Vlan 22, Name: Sales, will support two servers attached to fa0/13 and fa0/14
– Vlan 23, Name: Engineering, will support two servers attached to fa0/15 and fa0/16
– Access ports that connect to server should transition immediately to forwarding state upon detecting the connection of a device.
– SwitchB VTP mode needs to be the same as SwitchA.
– SwitchB must operate in the same spanning tree mode as SwitchA.
– No routing is to be configured on SwitchB.
– Only the SVI vlan 1 is to be configured and it is to use address 192.168.1.11/24.

Inter-switch Connectivity Configuration Requirements:

– For operational and security reasons trunking should be unconditional and Vlans 1, 21, 22 and 23 should tagged when traversing the trunk link.
– The two trunks between SwitchA and SwitchB need to be configured in a mode that allows for the maximum use of their bandwidth for all vlans. This mode should be done with a non-proprietary protocol, with SwitchA controlling activation.
– Propagation of unnecessary broadcasts should be limited using manual pruning on this trunk link.

Note: There is a requirement that the trunk between SwitchA and SwitchB must be configured under physical interfaces, not logical port-channel interface

Answer and Explanation:

We post the initial configuration of Sw-A & Sw-B here for your reference, you can try solving this sim by yourself before reading the asnwers below:

Initial Configuration (useless lines have been removed)

SwA:
hostname Sw-A
!
vtp mode transparent
!
spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst
!
vlan 98
!
vlan 99
 name TrunkNative
!
interface FastEthernet0/1
 switchport access vlan 98
 switchport mode access
!
interface FastEthernet0/3
 switchport access vlan 98
 switchport mode access
!
interface FastEthernet0/4
 switchport access vlan 98
 switchport mode access
!
interface Vlan1
 no ip address
 shutdown
!
end
Sw-B:
hostname Sw-B
!
vtp mode server
!
spanning-tree mode pvst
!
interface FastEthernet0/3
!
interface FastEthernet0/4
!
interface FastEthernet0/9
!
interface FastEthernet0/10
!
interface FastEthernet0/13
!
interface FastEthernet0/14
!
interface FastEthernet0/15
!
interface FastEthernet0/16
!
interface Vlan1
 no ip address
 shutdown
!
ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1
!
end

Solution

SW-A (close to router)
Note: If Sw-A does not have Vlan 11, 12, 13 we have to create them first with command “SW-A(config)#vlan 11,12,13”
SW-A(config)#vlan 21
SW-A(config)#vlan 22
SW-A(config)#vlan 23
SW-A(config)#spanning-tree vlan 11-13,21-23 root primary

SW-A(config)#interface range fa0/3 – 4
SW-A(config-if)#no switchport mode access
SW-A(config-if)#no switchport access vlan 98 (These two commands must be deleted to form a trunking link)
SW-A(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
SW-A(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW-A(config-if)#switchport trunk native vlan 99
SW-A(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23
SW-A(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode active
SW-A(config-if)#channel-protocol lacp
SW-A(config-if)#no shutdown

Note: In practical when you apply commands under “interface port-channel 1”, the same commands will be automatically applied to the physical member interfaces (of port-channel 1) so you don’t need to type them under physical member interfaces again. But in this exam you should configure everything under physical interfaces as there is a requirement to do so.

——————————————————————————————–

SW-B (far from router)
SW-B(config)#vlan 21
SW-B(config-vlan)#name Marketing
SW-B(config-vlan)#exit

SW-B(config)#vlan 22

SW-B(config)#vlan 23
SW-B(config-vlan)#name Engineering
SW-B(config-vlan)#exit
SW-B(config)#vlan 99
SW-B(config-vlan)#name TrunkNative // not necessary to name it but just name it same as SwitchA
SW-B(config-vlan)#exit
SW-B(config)#interface range fa0/9 – 10
SW-B(config-if-range)#switchport mode access
SW-B(config-if-range)#switchport access vlan 21

SW-B(config)#interface range fa0/15 – 16
SW-B(config-if-range)#switchport mode access
SW-B(config-if-range)#switchport access vlan 23
SW-B(config-if-range)#spanning-tree portfast
SW-B(config-if-range)#no shutdown
SW-B(config-if-range)#exit

SW-B(config)#vtp mode transparent

SW-B(config)#spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst //Same as Sw-A

SW-B(config)#ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1 (you can get this IP from SW-A with command show cdp neighbour detail) // not sure about this command because the question says “No routing is to be configured on SwitchB”.

SW-B(config)#interface vlan 1
SW-B(config-if)#ip address 192.168.1.11 255.255.255.0
SW-B(config-if)#no shutdown
SW-B(config-if)#exit

SW-B(config)#interface range fa0/3 – 4
SW-B(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
SW-B(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW-B(config-if)#switchport trunk native vlan 99 //this command will prevent the “Native VLAN mismatched” error on both switches
SW-B(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23
SW-B(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode passive //mode passive because “SwitchA controlling activation”
SW-B(config-if)#channel-protocol lacp
SW-B(config-if)#no shutdown

Note: For Sw-B we have to set the 802.1q trunking protocol (switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q) before converting it into a trunk because it is a 3500 series (or higher) switch which supports both ISL and 802.1Q and we have to explicitly set which trunking protocol to be used. Sw-A is a 2900x series (or lower) switch and does not support ISL trunking protocol (802.1Q is the only supported trunking protocol) so we can apply “switchport mode trunk” directly.

———————————————————

Some guidelines for configuring SwitchA & SwitchB:

Configuration Requirements for SwitchA

– The VTP and STP configuration modes on SwitchA should not be modified.
– SwitchA needs to be the root switch for vlans 11, 12, 13, 21, 22 and 23. All other vlans should be left are their default values
SW-A(config)#spanning-tree vlan 11-13,21-23 root primary

Configuration Requirements for SwitchB

– Vlan 21, Name: Marketing, will support two servers attached to fa0/9 and fa0/10
– Vlan 22, Name: Sales, will support two servers attached to fa0/13 and fa0/14
– Vlan 23, Name: Engineering, will support two servers attached to fa0/15 and fa0/16
– Access ports that connect to server should transition immediately to forwarding state upon detecting the connection of a device.
vlan …
name …
(VLANs must be created on both switches if not exist)
interface range fa0/x – y
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan
spanning-tree portfast
– SwitchB VTP mode needs to be the same as SwitchA. vtp mode transparent
– SwitchB must operate in the same spanning tree mode as SwitchA. spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst
– No routing is to be configured on SwitchB.
– Only the SVI vlan 1 is to be configured and it is to use address 192.168.1.11/24.
interface vlan 1
ip address 192.168.1.11 255.255.255.0

Inter-switch Connectivity Configuration Requirements:

– For operational and security reasons trunking should be unconditional and Vlans 1, 21, 22 and 23 should tagged when traversing the trunk link.
– The two trunks between SwitchA and SwitchB need to be configured in a mode that allows for the maximum use of their bandwidth for all Vlans. This mode should be done with a non-proprietary protocol, with SwitchA controlling activation.
– Propagation of unnecessary broadcasts should be limited using manual pruning on this trunk link.
SW-A(config)#interface range fa0/3 – 4
SW-A(config-if)#no switchport mode access
SW-A(config-if)#no switchport access vlan 98
Note: Two above commands must be deleted first to form a trunking link.

Although the first requirement asks us to configure trunking but we can ignore this task because we only need to configure trunking under their Port-channel (in the next task)

– The two trunks between SwitchA and SwitchB need to be configured in a mode that allows for the maximum use of their bandwidth for all Vlans:
SW-A(config)#interface range fa0/3 – 4
SW-A(config-if)#no switchport mode access
SW-A(config-if)#no switchport access vlan 98
SW-A(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
SW-A(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode active
SW-A(config-if)#channel-protocol lacp
SW-A(config-if)#no shutdown
– Trunking should be unconditional and Vlans 1, 21, 22 and 23 should tagged when traversing the trunk link:
SW-A(config-if)#switchport mode trunk //unconditional trunking
SW-A(config-if)#switchport trunk native vlan 99 //this command will prevent the “Native VLAN mismatched” error on both switches and make other VLANs to be tagged
– Propagation of unnecessary broadcasts should be limited using manual pruning on this trunk link.
SW-A(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23
—————————————
SW-B(config)#interface range Fa0/3 – 4
SW-B(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
SW-B(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
SW-B(config-if)#switchport trunk native vlan 99 //this command will prevent the “Native VLAN mismatched” error on both switches
SW-B(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23
SW-B(config-if)#channel-group 1 mode passive
SW-B(config-if)#channel-protocol lacp
SW-B(config-if)#no shutdown

Some notes for this sim:
+ You should check the initial status of both switches with these commands: show vtp status (transparent mode on SwitchA and we have to set the same mode on SwitchB), show spanning-tree [summary] (rapid-pvst mode on SwitchA and we have to set the same mode on SwitchB), show vlan (check the native vlan and the existence of vlan99), show etherchannel 1 port-channel and show ip int brief (check if Port-channel 1 has been created and make sure it is up), show run (to check everything again).
+ When using “int range f0/x – y” command hit space bar before and after “-” otherwise the simulator does not accept it.
+ You must create VLAN 99 for the SwitchB. SwitchA already has VLAN 99 configured.
+ At the end, you can try to ping from SwitchB to RouterA (you can get the IP on RouterA via the show cdp neighbors detail on SwitchA), not sure if it can ping or not. If not, you can use the “ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1” on SwitchB.
+ The name of SwitchA and SwitchB can be swapped or changed so be careful to put your configuration into appropriate switch.

The following “show” commands should be used to verify the configuration:

+ show vlan (check if the VLANs and VLAN names are correct)
+ show interface trunk (check if physical and port-channel is in trunking mode; the native VLANs on two switches match; allowed VLANs are correct)
+ show etherchannel summary (check Etherchannel status and LACP mode)
+ show ip interface brief (make sure the configured ports are up/up)
+ show spanning-tree (check STP mode)
+ show spanning-tree detail (can be used to check PortFast on specific interface but not sure if this command is supported in the exam)
+ show vtp status
+ show run (verify everything again)

    Passed the exam today!!! Thanks to certprepare. Most of the questions are valid on certprepare – few new questions such as using AAA feature with Remote Security Database etc were there. Roughly 15 to 20% of the questions were new.
    Like others has mentioned in previous comments it’s highly recommended to understand the concepts because the questions can be asked in several different ways and it may appear bit tricky. Simlets/simulation labs can give good credit, so make sure you study labs in here thoroughly. All the best for those who are preparing for the exam.

    passed exam today… thanks to my understanding on some technologies. got lacp with STP sim. Sims still valid, drag n drop still valid, port security questions still valid. not all AAA questions are here, stackwise questions not here, some rstp not here.
    I advise to postpone your exam if you are not prepared.. most questions are not here. i you to understand technologies. i give you a piece of advise. go through the questions here, check the answer and question the answer. (what, why, how).

    There is an error in the configuration of the trunk – the native VLAN should also be listed as permitted on the trunk:
    switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
    switchport mode trunk
    switchport trunk native vlan 99
    switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23,99
    Even if missed the command will be accepted but the native vlan will not pass traffic and no error will be generated, so a lot of headache to find the issue

    Hi Guys,

    Allowing vlan 99 on the port-channel automatically makes it visible on the two trunk ports as well (between the 2 switches)
    Is that correct?

    interface port-channel1
    switchport mode trunk
    switchport trunk native vlan 99
    switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23,99 <<<< Allowed 99

    interface FastEthernet0/3
    switchport trunk native vlan 99
    switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23,99 <<<<<<< It automatically appeared here.
    switchport mode trunk
    channel-protocol lacp
    channel-group 1 mode active
    !
    interface FastEthernet0/4
    switchport trunk native vlan 99
    switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,21-23,99 <<<<<<< It automatically appeared here.
    switchport mode trunk
    channel-protocol lacp
    channel-group 1 mode active

    Is this correct?
