I'm also in the Z2H class, this is Cliff. I plan to take the v5 written next year.
Since our class was rescheduled, I've been labbing all weekend and doing related work projects. I've got a VPN RA deployment and guest wireless project all using ISE to secure the endpoints (4 x ASA 5585's in active/standby pairs or maybe clustering depending on what we learn in the class).
Just got the ASA's and ISE configured with multificator authentication for Cisco Anyconnect as part of the RA deployment. Meeting with engineering team tomorrow to go over design for ISE pushing dACL's to the AC endpoints.
A comment on the ISE switch config. This is optional and not needed for the minimal config you are labbing. I ran into a production issue when a switch stack lost connectivity to the ISE nodes due to a routing issue and the voice vlan stopped working. Traced it to a missing command on the interfaces:
authentication event server dead action authorize voice
After entering this command on the appropriate port ranges and bouncing the ports the voice vlan was restored.
The following command was in place:
authentication event server dead action reinitialize vlan xxx
This enabled workstations to continue functioning on the data vlan xxx, but without the voice authorization command the IP phones stayed in the data vlan.
This is nicely documented in Iris's blog under Radius session timeout in her 802.1x switch config article.
Not sure how relevant this is to the lab exam, but something to keep in mind with respect to designing out a production network and proper placement of ISE nodes (we have 6 in our production environment). I looked ahead into the Vol3 workbook but couldn't find anything related (just MAB'ing and profiling IP phones). I'd like to test this scenario once Piotr has our pods up tho. I was looking at the class topology, and I can shutdown vlan 203 to simulate this issue.
Good luck on your lab prep for December. BTW, what did books did you end up using for the v4.1 written? I saw an earlier post when you were figuring out which books to use.
