Question 3

Question 4

Question 5

Question 6

Question 7

VRRP has three authentication schemes:
+ No authentication

Question 9

Question 10

Question 11

Question 12


To minimize network traffic, only the Master for each virtual router sends periodic VRRP Advertisement messages. A Backup router will not attempt to preempt the Master unless it has higher priority. This eliminates service disruption unless a more preferred path becomes

    question 3 makes no sense. The answer seems odd also

    Q3 – VRRP can have multiple groups per vlan (1-255). VLAN number and VRRP Group number DOES NOT need to match.

    @BoZZ Can you explain a little more? The correct answer is the selection where the VLAN number and VRRP group number match.

    Q3 – VRRP default priority is 100. Hence, between answers A and B, A is correct because there is no need to manually configure priority to 100 as shown in answer B.

    Cleared my exam, 9xx , first try
    Study the labs here and the dumps from IT-Libraries (dumps have the lab but only the explanations)

    Regarding Q 9. why D not A?

    Authentication commands must be entered under the interface. can you enter it somewhere else?

    Would inserting the same ip address on both interfaces involved in the vrrp election and Virtual ip interface work?!

    Hello AI,

    With VRRP, the VIP and an interface on the L3 switch or router can share/have the same ip address. The authentication command is entered under the interface in VRRP, same for HSRP and GLBP.

    I feel D and E are both correct because they are features unique to VRRP.

    question 10 and 11 are missing in questions.

    Q3 is so vague!!

    The below is from cisco website:

    Configuring VRRP Priority
    The valid priority range for a virtual router is from 1 to 254 (1 is the lowest priority and 254 is the highest).
    The default priority value for backups is 100. For devices whose interface IP address is the same as the primary virtual IP address (the master), the default value is 255.

    C. So according to the above,IP address of the int van 1 is the same as the primary virtual IP of vrrp group 1 making it the master of the party

    B. addresses are different making it backup, default is 100 – cisco doesn’t like us to repeat default config?

    A. again this is back up, default is 100 but we are trying to achieve some shenanigans here
    and decided to have it as 200

    I would probably go for A but each of the examples is valid, cisco really needs to stop this kind of questions, this is not even about knowing stuff but trying to figure what the hell they want

    A. VRRP uses multicast address
    C. VRRP uses protocol identifier 112

    no need to explain this one
