    Ugh, been ill this week. I HAVE to get back on this. I passed the Route, then got started on switch - went away for work, went on vacation, and got sick lol. It's been like 3 weeks since I studied. But, there's some good news. We got a 2 post rack for the IT lab and I've racked and cabled my CCNP lab and DMVPN lab. It looks official too. So next week - no excuse. I feel pretty good today so I should be able to kill it next week.

    Started chapter 6 from the beginning and finished it. I have my lab racked now as well. Here is a picture of it. http://i.imgur.com/7HVPzX3.jpg It's a bit messy on the wiring, those blue cables are so stiff. Below is that DMVPN lab too which I should finally be getting back to. Unreal how long things take. Been waiting on the server guys to get a service account to get a CA set up.

    Terminal server was the best thing I've ever set up. Makes it so much easier to lab.

    Did some good stuff at work yesterday. Got some routers/switches into monitoring that were never added from the DR site. Involved doing some BGP work and then some re-distribution into an interior routing protocol. Some ACL/route map configuration. Some firewall work and a no-nat (most firewall stuff I've ever done) and some other work. Took awhile but I put a lot of CCNP route level stuff to work.

    On to chapter 7.

    Banged out chapter 8. Need to bang out chapter 9 and hopefully 10 this week before the long weekend.

    Not in love with this material. Very boring. Our core is all Layer 3 and even when layer 2 is present is numbers, it's all switch stacks. There's no real STP to be had...

    Before starting Chapter 9 I decided to go back and review my notes and lab a little more and make some note cards. Really made sense of TCAM and SDM, even though we've never messed with the default template at my place of work. Did some stuff like mess with forcing err-disable conditions and doing the auto recovery commands which was cool. The note cards for some of the STP stuff will be helpful.

    I feel alot better and am ready for chapter 9. I still have a ways to go, I can't wait to get thru the material and pass the exam and then T-shoot and take some sort of break lol.

    On chapter 12 now. It's going OK, did some good labbing with SVIs and CEF was covered again in chapter 11, but was pretty familiar with it already. I know a good amount of the material already.

    More exciting - learned how to calculate the bandwidth used by a phone call depending on codec and sample size used. Important because of some new voice complete stuff getting thrown into the mixer and we'll have much more phone calls coming into the data center. Not a voice guy but nice to get a little knowledge there.

    Working on chapter 13 now. Starting to power through this thing. Back to the DMVPN lab at work and FINALLY have it working with a Windows CA, but the server engineer needs to do a little bit for me (CRL is not working for example) and I need to come up with a plan and all that to roll this out + the re-designed DMVPN environment to 110 sites. This project just always takes a back burner but I like working on it. Good resume builder.

    The new ASAs came in, but I am waiting on the new F5 load balancers which I am supposedly doing. Never have done that stuff before, should be good experience.

    Chapter 13 was easy. I actually set my lab up to use NTP yesterday because of the certificate stuff in my lab. Syslog stuff is nothing new either.

    On to 14.

    On Chapter 19. Have notecards made up to chapter 15. Might finish this week. Have been labbing all along but will really hammer re-labbing next week and maybe take test on June 30?

    Way more comfortable now, but I know A LOT of the material from work. IP SLA, HSRP, etc are nothing new to me at all.

    So I have finished the book and nearly done my index cards. I've landed everything on the way but I need to go back and re lab it all and hammer it home. Some of the AAA stuff was confusing and I still need some clarity on stp stuff, but I've booked the exam for next Wednesday. Fun fact, we had a port go errdisabled due to bpdu guard the other day. I think the guy looped an unmanaged switch. I tested it in the lab and it helped me clear up some spanning tree stuff. I didn't realize access ports were all designated ports. It makes sense why plugging 2 cables from a Cisco switch to an unmanaged switch would cause bpdu guard to go off.

    Thanks buddy. I'm nervous. I'm just going to hit the labbing hard the next 4 days to really beat in some topics. I do a lot more with routing than anything else.

    As for the DMVPN thing I always mention, I typed up the official documentation this week. Meeting up with server guys next week to get off the CA in development and build one for production. This thing should actually start to be rolled out soon, maybe lol.

    Passed the SWITCH today. Cisco has buggy labs - enough said. And some poor wording. Fortunately, all 3 labs I was somewhat familiar with because of recent real-work situations which alone was probably worth a ton.

    On to T-shoot.

    Haha thanks mate. One more to go.

    I have 4 switches + 2 routers in my lab currently, but I need to get 2 more in there it appears. I found something on Cisco's site regarding the TSHOOT topology, so I want to build that. I'm going to go thru my route notes and re-lab everything. I'm hoping this is not more than a few weeks.

    I went through my entire ROUTE notebook and labbed a bunch of stuff. I've also built the entire T-SHOOT topology as far as I can tell with real equipment - 4 routers and 4 switches. I have not done the IPv6 stuff, which I will do. I am bad with it though.

    Hello all,

    I have passed the T-SHOOT. Started the thread 9 months ago. It's been such a long time, but it feels good. I ordered the CCDA book, so it is like for that and the CCDP. Once done those two, I need to read a QoS book, get more experience with ASAs, and F5 load balancers (which should happen soon). One thing at a time I guess.
