These are daily tasks that ingrain the mundane and develops much needed speed for the tasks.

THESE SHOULD BE DONE DAILY! Every day.

Ports and Port Types Edit

The Data Center track isn't just routers and switches. There are Nexus 7K, 5K, 2K, UCS, MDS, JBODs, etc... Each port has a specific configuration for its purpose and being able to easily recognize this is key to speed and accuracy during the exam. The following is a list of possible port scenarios that could be found on the exam, if there is a combo missing please comment or add.

Port Listing Edit

N7K M1 to Cloud - routed interface
N7K M1 to Cloud - switched interface
N7K M1 to N7K M1- normal trunk link
N7K F1 to N7K F1 - normal trunk link
N7K F1 to N5K - normal trunk link
N5K to N7K F1 - normal trunk link
N5K to N5K - normal trunk link
N5k to Server - normal access port
N5k to Server - access edge port
N7K M1 to N7K M1 - port channel
N7K F1 to N7K F1 - port channel
N7K F1 to N5K - port channel
N5K to N7K F1 - port channel
N5K to N5K - port channel
All trunk ports with bridge assurance
N5K to N5K - total vpc config, peer links and port channel
N5K to Server - vpc links and port channel
N7K to N7K - total vpc config, peer links and port channel
N7K to N5K - vpc links and port channel
N5K to N7K - port-channel to upstream vpc domain
VPC - back to back VPC config
VPC - peer switch, how does this affect other protocols
VPC - nerd knobs on domain config, research the parameters
N7K - vrf interface and port-channel
VPC Keepalive - normal keepalive
VPC Keepalive - management interface
VPC Keepalive - SVI, how does this impace vpc peer link config?
N5K to N2K - one port FEX
N5K to N2K - active/standby (assume 2 5K and 2 2K, no crossbar)
N5K to N2K - active/active (assume 2 5K and 2 2K, no crossbar)
N5K to N2K - active active fabric (assume  2 5K and 2 2K, with crossbar)
Overlay interface - normal, no mulitcast
Overlay interface - using multicast adjacency
Overlay interface - using authentication + multicast
N7K to N7K F1 - fabricpath
N7K to N7K F1 - fabricpath port channel
N7K to N7K F1 - fabricpath authentication
N7K to N7K F1 - fabricpath path LSP authentication
N5K to MDS - normal fcoe port
MDS to N5K - normal fcoe port
N5K to MDS - fcoe trunk port/port channel
MDS to N5K - fcoe trunk port/port channel
N5K to N2K - fcoe
MDS to JBOD - normal fabric port
MDS to Cloud - iscsi interfaces (using virtual targets)
MDS to Cloud - FCIP
N5K to UCS - trunk port
N5K to UCS FI - port channel uplink ports
MDS to UCS FI - port channel uplink ports
UCS FI to MDS - port channel uplink ports
UCS FI to N5K - trunk port
UCS FI to N5K - port channel uplink ports
UCS FI to N5K via N2K - port channel uplink ports
N5K via N2K to UCS FI - port channel uplink ports

Protocols Edit

The protocols are more detailed and require a bit of work. It helps to draw out each scenario and configure accordingly.

Protocol List Edit

HSRP - vlan interfaces with HSRP address
OTV - normal OTV config, no multicast
OTV - using adjacency and multicast
OTV - using authentication

Scenarios Edit

These scenarios are potential candidates for the exam.

Scenario List Edit

vPC
Back to Back vPC
Enhanced vPC
