ICND2 2.0: VLANs and Spanning-Tree

This course starts with a review of VLAN and trunk technology. Understanding how VLANs and trunks operate and which protocols are associated with them is important for configuring, verifying, and troubleshooting VLANs and trunks on Cisco access switches. This course also addresses some of the common reasons that port connectivity, VLAN configuration, and trunk establishment can fail. It describes what information to look for to identify the source of the problem and determine how to solve it. Switched networks introduce redundancy, so an STP loop-avoidance mechanism is needed to prevent undesirable loops. Most complex networks include redundant devices to avoid single points of failure. Although a redundant topology eliminates some issues, it can introduce other problems. STP is a Layer 2 link management protocol that provides path redundancy while preventing undesirable loops in a switched network. This course closes with a review of the problems that are caused by redundant switched-network topologies and the functions of STP that prevent these problems.

ICND2 2.0: EtherChannel and Layer 3 Redundancy

In hierarchical network design, some links between access and distribution switches may be heavily utilized. The speed of these links can be increased, but only to a certain point. EtherChannel is a technology that allows you to circumvent this restriction by creating logical links made up of several physical links. This course describes EtherChannel technology and the various technologies that are available to implement it. You will also learn how to configure EtherChannel and how to verify EtherChannel operations. This course also explains solutions to routing problems in a local network with a redundant topology. One solution to these problems is explained through the router redundancy process. This course identifies HSRP, VRRP, and GLBP as Layer 3 redundancy protocols. The use of the show standby and show glbp commands are also covered.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the protocols that can negotiate EtherChannel creation and maintenance
  • Verify the EtherChannel configuration
  • Not Applicable
  • Identify the requirement for setting up multiple routers as a single virtual router
  • Differentiate between how active and standby routers function in HSRP
  • Configure HSRP in a given scenario
  • Identify the characteristics of the Gateway Load Balancing Protocol

ICND2 2.0: Troubleshooting Basic Connectivity

Diagnosing and resolving problems is an essential skill of network engineers. A particular problem can be diagnosed and sometimes even solved in many different ways. By using a structured approach to the troubleshooting process, you can greatly reduce the average time it takes to diagnose and solve a problem. This course describes various approaches to troubleshooting network connectivity issues. As with IPv4 networks, problems will arise in IPv6 networks. You will be required to troubleshoot these problems, and you can use the same structured approach as troubleshooting IPv4 networks. However, because there are differences in IPv4 and IPv6 operations, troubleshooting IPv6 networks has its own specifics. For example, instead of verifying ARP entries in IPv4, you have to verify neighbor discovery entries in IPv6. This course describes how to verify end-to-end IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity. The course also describes how to verify current paths in networks, DNS and default gateway settings, and ACLs.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe how to troubleshoot loss of end-to-end connectivity for IPv4
  • Describe end-to-end connectivity troubleshooting tools
  • Identify the guidelines for duplex configuration
  • Distinguish between the types of routes
  • Identify the commands to verify the presence of a default gateway
  • Identify the commands to troubleshoot end-to-end connectivity caused by ACL issues
  • Describe IPv6 unicast addresses and EUI-64 interface ID assignment
  • Sequence the steps to troubleshoot failed end-to-end connectivity for IPv6
  • Describe how to troubleshoot the components involved in IPv6 end-to-end connectivity

ICND2 2.0: An Overview of OSPF

OSPF is a link-state routing protocol that is often used in networks due to scalability, fast convergence, and multivendor environment support. Understanding OSPF operations and OSPF terms is therefore important for network engineers who would like to design, implement, and troubleshoot scalable networks. In this lesson, a quick overview of link-state routing protocols, OSPF data structures, and OSPF metrics is done before explaining the functions of OSPF and its packet types. The course describes how the link-state database is built using LSAs, explains OSPF areas as a structure that gives OSPF scalability, defines area terminology, and draws attention to important design limitations. The course also highlights the OSPF neighbor adjacency process.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize advantages of link-state routing protocols over distance vector routing protocols
  • Apply the OSPF metric to compare two paths
  • Identify information contained in a hello packet
  • Match update packets used to build and synchronize link-state databases with their definitions
  • Define different neighbor states that OSPF routers go through
  • Describe characteristics of the different kinds of routers in an OSPF area structure
  • Match LSA types used in OSPF designs with their descriptions

ICND2 2.0: Implementing an EIGRP Based Solution

EIGRP is an advanced distance vector routing protocol that was developed by Cisco. EIGRP is suited for many different topologies and media. In a well-designed network, EIGRP scales well and provides quick convergence times with minimal overhead. EIGRP is a popular choice for a routing protocol on Cisco devices. This course describes how to configure and monitor EIGRP. EIGRP is one of the routing protocols that is commonly used in large enterprise networks. Troubleshooting problems related to the exchange of routing information is one of the most essential skills for a network engineer who is involved in the implementation and maintenance of large routed enterprise networks that use EIGRP as the IGP. This course provides the troubleshooting flow and the Cisco IOS commands that you can use to gather information from the EIGRP data structures and routing processes. Although proprietary to Cisco, EIGRP is widely used. Supporting IPv6 is important for the continued success of EIGRP. This course concludes with describing Cisco EIGRP support for IPv6, including its operation, configuration, and verification.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe dynamic routing protocols
  • Identify the features of EIGRP
  • Identify the criteria EIGRP uses to calculate its metric
