Question 6

Which device can provide FCoE connectivity?

  • A. Cisco 2901 Integrated Services Router
  • B. Cisco Nexus 2224TP Fabric Extender
  • C. Cisco Nexus 5548 Switch
  • D. Cisco ASA 5510 Firewall

Answer : C

Question 7

true? (Choose two.)

  • A. Software updates are disruptive to VLANs.
  • B. VLANs with the same number are unique to their VDC.
  • C. VLAN licensing is required for use.

Question 8

On most keyboards, the Up arrow and Down arrow keys move through the command
history. Which two key sequences can be used as alternatives? (Choose two.)

  • A. Alt-A
  • B. Alt-F
  • C. Alt-N
  • D. Alt-E
  • E. Alt-P

Answer : C,E

Explanation: "Alt-P History search backwards Alt-N History search forwards" http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5000/sw/configuration/guide/cl i_rel_4_0_1a/begin.html

Question 9

What are three modular Layer 2 processes in Cisco Nexus Operating System? (Choose

  • A. UDLD
  • B. PIM
  • C. HSRP
  • D. STP
  • E. Cisco Discovery Protocol
  • F. OSPF

Answer : A,D,E

Explanation: "PIM is IP routing protocol-independent and can leverage whichever unicast routing protocols are used to populate the unicast routing table, including Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and static routes. PIM uses this unicast routing information to perform the multicast forwarding function. Although PIM is called a multicast routing protocol, it actually uses the unicast routing table to perform the RPF check function instead of building up a completely independent multicast routing table. Unlike other routing protocols, PIM does not send and receive routing updates between routers." http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/solutions_docs/ip_multicast/White_papers/mcst_ovr. html#wp1009068 "Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) is a Cisco proprietary redundancy protocol for establishing a faulttolerant default gateway. In the configuration procedures, the specified interface must be a Layer 3 interface:" http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750/software/release/12.2_55_se/c onfiguration/guide/ swhsrp.html OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) - routing protocol.

Question 10

At which layer of the OSI Model is TCP traffic encapsulated?

  • A. transport
  • B. data-link
  • C. presentation
  • D. application

Answer : A

Question 11

Which option is an example of a link-state routing protocol?

  • A. EIGRP
  • B. RIP
  • C. OSPF
  • D. ARP

Answer : C

Explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link-state_routing_protocol "A link-state routing protocol is one of the two main classes of routing protocols used in packet switching networks for computer communications (the other is the distance-vector routing protocol). Examples of link state routing protocols include open shortest path first (OSPF) and intermediate system to intermediate system (IS-IS)."

Question 12

What is the correct format of an access control list on a Cisco Nexus switch to only permit
unencrypted Web traffic from the network to destination host

  • A. N5K-A(config)# ip access-list 101N5K-A(config-acl)# permit tcp host any eq 80
  • B. N5K-A(config)# ip access-list 101N5K-A(config-acl)# permit tcp any eq 80
  • C. N5K-A(config)# ip access-list 101N5K-A(config-acl)# permit tcp any eq 80
  • D. N5K-A(config)#access-list 101 permit tcp eq 80
  • E. N5K-A(config)# ip access-list 101N5K-A(config-acl)# permit tcp any eq 80

Answer : C

Question 13

What are three characteristics of the Ethernet access method CSMA/CD? (Choose three.)

  • A. It allows many stations access to the same wire.
  • B. It provides segmentation of a LAN.
  • C. It allows a transmitting station to detect activity on the wire.
  • D. It allows for detection of collisions on the wire.
  • E. It provides broadcast capability on the wire.

Answer : A,C,D

Question 14

Which network topology is most closely associated with classical CSMA/CD?

  • A. bus
  • B. token passing bus
  • C. star
  • D. extended star
  • E. ring
