The answers provided in this section are not necessarily the only possible answers to the questions. The questions are designed to test your knowledge and to give practical exercise in certain key areas. This section is intended to test and to exercise skills and concepts detailed in the body of this chapter.
If your answer is different, ask yourself whether it follows the tenets explained in the answers provided. Your answer is correct not if it matches the solution provided in the book, but rather if it has included the principles of design laid out in the chapter.
In this way, the testing provided in these scenarios is deeper: It examines not only your knowledge, but also your understanding and ability to apply that knowledge to problems.
If you do not get the correct answer, refer to the text and review the subject tested. Be certain to also review your notes on the question to ensure that you understand the principles of the subject.
|1.||Issue the configuration commands for the RIP network to be redistributed on Router A into EIGRP.|
Router(config)# router eigrp 300 Router(config-router)# network 22.214.171.124 Router(config-router)# redistribute rip Router(config-router)# default-metric 10000 100 255 1 1500
|2.||On Router A, ensure that the interfaces running EIGRP do not have RIP updates generated through them or that the RIP interfaces do not have EIGRP updates running through them.|
|Strictly speaking, the passive-interface command on s0.2 is not required because the interface address is different from that stated in the network command. The same is true for RIP. To ensure this:
Router(config)# router eigrp 300 Router(config-router)# network 126.96.36.199 Router(config-router)# redistribute rip Router(config-router)# default-metric 10000 100 255 1 1500 Router(config-router)# passive-interface s0.2 Router(config)# router rip Router(config-router)# network 188.8.131.52 Router(config-router)# passive-interface s0.1 Router(config-router)# passive-interface s0.3 Router(config-router)# passive-interface e0 Router(config-router)# passive-interface e1
|3.||The sites running EIGRP are running different autonomous system numbers. How would you implement a transition to both sites running EIGRP using the same autonomous system number?|
|There are several ways to transition from different autonomous systems to one autonomous system so that EIGRP 200 and 300 automatically redistribute:
|4.||The OSPF redistribution into RIP has been implemented, but users are complaining about delays. State the first step that you would take to verify the configuration.|
|The first step is to issue the following commands, possibly on both the OSPF and RIP routers:
|5.||The CIO has been asked to submit a transition plan to the board of trustees that includes a reasoned explanation for the need for redistribution. What should it look like?|
|The transition plan should include the following:
