NMC DOiT Lab 16

Filed under: General — dorreke @ 13:39

I was behind on my labs.  Week 16 has finished, and I only just got round to doing lab 16.  Nevertheless, I am quite pleased with myself.  It looked quite an easy one – no redistribution loops etc. – so I decided to do it as a timed exercise.  I estimated 6 hours and managed to complete it in under 4.  So either I am getting faster and more confident, or it was exceptionally easy, or there will be lots of mistakes in it when I go through the AK.

Here is my timing.  I have not estimated my points yet.  The read-through took longer than I allowed, but that’s a good thing.  I got interrupted at 08:15 when the family woke up.  (Well … it is Sunday.)  I had a break mid-morning when I had to go and collect my 11-year-old from his sleep-over.  Altogether, I am pretty pleased with how it went.

  TOTAL       03:45 06:00 100 0
                 

Now the hard bit starts.  Here are the sections I had some thoughts about:

  • 16.5 EIGRP – Summarization
  • 16.8 BGP – (to follow) – use as test bed for messing up routes through a backbone
  • 16.14 Multicast – Receive-only devices+ dense-mode prunes

(BGP entry does not mean much yet.  Details to follow.)
