Chapter Description

This chapter details the equipment requirements and pre-lab tasks to help you prepare for the troubleshooting portion of the CCIE Routing and Switching exam.

Setting Up the Lab

Feel free to use any combination of routers and switches as long as you fulfill the requirements within the topology diagram as shown in Figure 1-1. However, it is recommended to use the same model of equipment because this will make life easier should you load configurations directly from the supplied configurations into your own devices.

Lab Topology

This troubleshooting exercise uses the topology outlined in Figure 1-1, which you will need to re-create with your own equipment or by using lab equipment on the CCIE R&S 360 program.

Switch Instructions

Configure VLAN assignments from the configurations supplied or from Table 1-2.
