VLAN Questions

November 24th, 2018 in SWITCH 300-115 Go to comments

Question 1


The Port Fast feature is automatically enabled when voice VLAN is configured. When you disable voice VLAN, the Port Fast feature is not automatically disabled.

Reference: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3550/software/release/12-1_19_ea1/configuration/guide/3550scg/swvoip.html

Question 2


802.1Q VLAN frames are distinguished from ordinary Ethernet frames by the insertion of a 4-byte VLAN tag into the Ethernet header.


Question 3


Because the 802.1Q tunneling feature increases the frame size by 4 bytes when the metro tag is added, you must configure all switches in the service-provider network to be able to process maximum frames by increasing the switch system MTU size to at least 1504 bytes.

Question 4


The VLAN ID field inside an 802.1q frame consists of 12 bits. Therefore we have 212 = 4096 VLAN IDs, theoretically.


Question 5


Each access port can be only assigned to one VLAN via the “switchport access vlan ” command.

Question 6


This command is used to enable tagging of native VLAN frames on all 802.1Q trunk ports.

Answer A is not correct because even when the native VLAN is set to 1, all of the frames of the native VLAN are tagged.

Answer B is not correct because the control traffic still passes via the default VLAN (VLAN 1).

Answer C is not correct because all the frames are tagged with 4-byte dot1Q tag.

Answer D is not correct as “Control traffic continues to be accepted as untagged on the native VLAN on a trunked port, even when the vlan dot1q tag native command is enabled” according to this link: https://www.cisco.com/c/m/en_us/techdoc/dc/reference/cli/nxos/commands/l2/vlan-dot1q-tag-native.html

Question 7


When you delete a VLAN, any LAN ports configured as access ports assigned to that VLAN become inactive. The ports remain associated with the VLAN (and inactive) until you assign them to a new VLAN.

Reference: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12-2SX/configuration/guide/book/vlans.html

Question 8


The PortFast feature is automatically enabled when voice VLAN is configured. When you disable voice VLAN, the PortFast feature is not automatically disabled.

Question 9

Question 10

    Q6. My understanding is that when you enter the command it will tagger the traffic for the native vlan & drop untagged traffic(explanation from Marrion link )

    To maintain the tagging on the native VLAN and drop untagged traffic, enter the vlan dot1q tag native command. The switch will tag the traffic received on the native VLAN and admit only 802.1Q-tagged frames, dropping any untagged traffic, including untagged traffic in the native VLAN.

    The answer in 6 is D because “some” control traffic will be tagged (for example STP will be), other will not (cdp,vtp), So D is the “best” answer (all the other are wrong)

    Here’s the rules: Any traffic coming in through an access port will be assigned to a vlan. If that vlan is not the default – native – vlan, it will get a vlan tag. If the port defaults to the native vlan, by default, no vlan tag is added to the frame; if tagging the default frame has been enabled, the frame will get a vlan 1 tag.

    All traffic exiting an access port has its vlan tag, if one exists, stripped.

    Trunk ports neither add vlan tags, nor strip vlan tags – ever.

    All control traffic travels on the native vlan. The native vlan, by default, does not add a vlan tag; it can, however be configured to add a vlan tag. Is there any good reason to add a vlan tag to native vlan traffic? No.

    A. – It doesn’t matter what the native vlan ID is, 1, or otherwise. By default it is not tagged; but it can be by using the command to do so.

    B. – Say what? This doesn’t even make sense. Control traffic always travels using the native vlan.

    C. – Since it is a trunk port, vlan tags are neither added nor stripped.

    D. – If you elect to tag native vlan frames – which is the heart of the question – then frames that use the native vlan for control traffic will have vlan tags applied.

    There is a very good reason to tag native VLAN – “attack” of VLAN traversing or hopping.

    D is best answer.

    The command force a switch to tag the native VLAN on all its 802.1Q trunks.
    Remember that with 802.1q the native vlan can be tagged or untagged.
    When untagged vlan hopping is possible.
    When tagged vlan hopping is not possible.
    If native vlan is different from vlan 1, then vlan 1 is treated as normal vlan on the trunk and will be tagged.

    question 4 seems to be asking for the whole tag in the 802.1q frame, not just the Vlan ID component within the tag itself. I would say the correct answer is 32 not 12. Poor wording of the question as usual.

  17. SAM

    here is the question ”What is the size of the VLAN field inside an 802.1q frame?”

    this part of the question tells us about what it is (VLAN field inside an 802.1q frame) more precisely that ”inside” word

    so question is alright

    I think that the Q4 is bad posed, since the 802.1Q is actually a tag, not a frame. The 802.1Q is made by 4 bytes, 32 bits, and the VLAN fied is composed of 12 bits:

    “When placing a VLAN tag (also known as an IEEE 802.1Q tag) on the Ethernet frame, the four bytes of data, which make up the VLAN tag, are inserted before the Type field, as shown in the following figure. This 4-byte header includes several pieces of information:

    A 2-byte Tag Protocol Identifier (TPID), which will be set to a value of 0x8100 to denote that this frame carries 802.1Q or 802.1p tag information.

    A 2-byte Tag Control Information (TCI), which is made of the following:

    A 3-bit user Priority Code Point (PCP) that sets a priority value between 0 and 7, which can be used for Quality of Service (QoS) priority traffic delivery.

    A 1-bit Canonical Format Indicator (CFI) that is a compatibility bit between Ethernet and other network structures, such as Token Ring. For Ethernet networks, this value will also be set to zero.

    A 12-bit VLAN Identifier (VID) that identifies the VLAN the frame belongs to.”

    My exam was taken on 3/25/2016 as I ended up with a humiliating 643/1000. All my study material was from the CiscoPress eBook (300-115), CBT Nuggets, VCE dumps (191q) and Certprep. I put in 6-7 study hours a day for nearly a month to pass 300-115 with extreme confidence, but I was shot down when I was roasted by the exam. The latest dumps from this site only covered about 25% of the questions given, but all the Lab Sim simulation were correct as I had LACP with STP / HRSP / AAA. I was easily able to finish the lab sims on the exam with success but fell way short when it came the questions with educated guesses. I would like to know if anyone can help me out to receive the latest dumps soon. Thanks. c_brotha @ yahoo.com

    Recently, I personally passed CCNP Route 300-101,SWITCH 300-115,TSHOOT 300-135 exams with full marks.
    I have purchased latest Premium vce dumps file that are 100% valid and I’m giving at nominal sharing cost.wanninayakegcb@gmail_com

    With regards to “vlan dot1q tag native” …
    I’m sure it’s out there somewhere, but I could not find anything official explicitly stating that control traffic is tagged with this command. However, I found a variation of the command:
    “vlan dot1q tag native exclude control”
    Which implies that control traffic IS tagged (the exclude option would seem to allow you to optionally exclude it”

    Interestingly, even when the control traffic is tagged in this manner, untagged control traffic on VLAN 1 will continue to be *accepted*: See this article:

    Finally passed the Route! Was a long journey… As I got caught in the update. However came across the ebay dump mentioned by others and passed the exam yesterday. The materials are still vailid. Like how he has packet tracer available for 3 of the simulations. It was good practice. No new questions.

    The link below is the ebay matierlas I have utilized, if you would like to use as well:

    Passed my Switch Exam! 191Q is valid. I’m pretty sure information on this site is helpful but I used study materials from this ebay seller I came across on my CCNA/CCNP Route cert prep journey. He tends to have the latest updates for all the exams he provides. He seems to not have the TShoot Cert Prep but will see if he has that lol. Onto completing my CCNP Certification!

    Information to the exam:

    37 Multiple Choice Questions
    OSPF TShoot Simlet
    LACP-STP Simulation
    AAAdot1x Simulation

    If you would like to use the study materials I used, here is the ebay link:

    Hi All,
    Just failed with 759 (790 needed). 25% new questions compared to the dumps that have 230Q. Worst is I have forgotten almost all new questions because they were multiple choice. It looks like there are a few different tests, some that match the dumps and some that don’t.
    Very disappointed as this is a must for me to pass to renew my ccnp!
    New questions I kind of recall are (multiple choice so I don’t know the offered answers):
    – switchport trunk and switchort access on the same port
    – MST configuration
    – SDM profile – (A: stored on master switch)
    – mac-move question
    – what happens when vlan.dat is deleted and switch reloaded?
    Note: one question had GLBP UDP 3222 as an answer (one of the multiple choice).
    Please let me know if you have additional new questions. You can send it to sgobeljic2000. It is yahoo

    Just came back from the exam:

    Q6 was changed. New possible answers were:
    – untagged traffic will be passes to the native vlan;
    – untagged traffic will be passed to the default vlan
    – untagged traffic wil be dropped.
    To my opninion the last choice “the traffic will be dropped” is the right answer. See underneath:

    Typically, you configure 802.1Q trunks with a native VLAN ID, which strips tagging from all packets on that VLAN.
    To maintain the tagging on the native VLAN and drop untagged traffic, use the vlan dot1q tag native command. The switch will tag the traffic received on the native VLAN and admit only 802.1Q-tagged frames, dropping any untagged traffic, including untagged traffic in the native VLAN.
    Control traffic continues to be accepted as untagged on the native VLAN on a trunked port, even when the vlan dot1q tag native command is enabled

    Niazi, because they switch the questions around but still from the same sources including 191Q

    I passed today with the dumps from the link above but it has 251 questions.
    On my second try I have to admit went the first time with the question from here but they only covered 50% of what was on the exam.
