NMC DOiT Vol.2 Scenario 12 – Quick Overview


I completed NetMasterClass.com DOiT scenario 12 just a little bit ago. I’m totally wiped out. I have lots to blog about from the scenario, but I need to lick my wounds and recover first. I thought this was going to be easier than it ended up to be. I wasted probably 45 minutes working on basic connectivity issues in the frame, well after I thought it was all working. Long story short, I rebooted the frame-switch because of an issue unrelated to frame-relay. But that inadvertently broke all my frame connections because of inverse-arp issues. That killed me, and set me behind for the rest of the lab. I was scratching and clawing through the rest of the scenario, trying to keep up, always feeling like I was 2 steps behind.

So for now, I’m going to take a breather, then review the answer key. And then I’ll blog about the highlights…probably tomorrow, and later on next week.
