Which type of OSPF network will elect a backup designated router?

1.Broadcast multi-access

2.Non-broadcast multi-access


4.Broadcast multipoint

Answer: A

DR and BDR are elected on broadcast and non-broadcast multi-access networks. Frame Relay is a non-broadcast multi-access (NBMA) network by default. No DR is assigned on any type of point-to-point link. No DR/BDR is assigned on the NBMA point-to-multipoint due to the hub/spoke topology.

Which command will display all the EIGRP feasible successor routes known to a router?

Answer: C

Any secondary route to a remote network is considered a feasible successor, and those routes are only found in the topology table and used as backup routes in case of primary route failure. You can see the topology table with the show ip eigrp topology command.

What is the administrative distance of OSPF?

Answer: C

The administrative distance (AD) is a very important parameter in a routing protocol. The lower the AD, the more trusted the route. If you have IGRP and OSPF running, by default IGRP routes would be placed in the routing table because IGRP has a lower AD of 100. OSPF has an AD of 110. RIPv1 and RIPv2 both have an AD of 120, and EIGRP is the lowest, at 90.

Which of the following protocols support VLSM, summarization, and discontiguous networking?







Answer: C

RIPv1 and IGRP are true distance-vector routing protocols and can't do much, really-except build and maintain routing tables and use a lot of bandwidth! RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF build and maintain routing tables, but they also provide classless routing, which allows for VLSM, summarization, and discontiguous networking.

You get a call from a network administrator who tells you that he typed the following into his router:

Router(config)#router ospf 1
Router(config-router)#network area 0

He tells you he still can't see any routes in the routing table. What configuration error did the administrator make?

Answer: A

The administrator typed in the wrong wildcard mask configuration. The wildcard should have been

Which EIGRP information is held in RAM and maintained through the use of Hello and update packets?

1.Neighbor table

2.STP table

3.Topology table

4.DUAL table

Answer: C

EIGRP holds three tables in RAM: neighbor, topology, and routing. The neighbor and topology tables are built and maintained with the use of Hello packets.

Which of the following network types have a designated router and a backup designated router assigned?




4.NBMA point-to-point

Answer: B

No DR is assigned on any type of point-to-point link. No DR/BDR is assigned on the NBMA point-to-multipoint due to the hub/spoke topology. DR and BDR are elected on broadcast and non-broadcast multi-access networks. Frame Relay is a non-Broadcast Multi-Access (NBMA) network by default.

Your company is running IGRP using an AS of 10. You want to configure EIGRP on the network but want to migrate slowly to EIGRP and don't want to configure redistribution. What command would allow you to migrate over time to EIGRP without configuring redistribution?

Answer: B

If you enable EIGRP on a router with the same autonomous system (AS) number, EIGRP will automatically redistribute IGRP into EIGRP. You will see the IGRP injected routes as external (EX) routes with an EIGRP AD of 170. This is a nice feature that lets you migrate slowly to EIGRP with no extra configuration.

A network administrator needs to configure a router with a distance-vector protocol that allows classless routing. Which of the following satisfies those requirements?

Answer: D

In this question, we're calling EIGRP just plain old distance vector. EIGRP is an "advanced" distance-vector routing protocol, sometimes called a hybrid routing protocol because it uses the characteristics of both distance-vector and link-state routing protocols.

You need the IP address of the devices with which the router has established an adjacency. Also, the retransmit interval and the queue counts for the adjacent routers need to be checked. What command will display the required information?

Answer: D

The show ip eigrp neighbors command allows you to check the IP addresses as well as the retransmit interval and queue counts for the neighbors that have established an adjacency.
