RSv5 OCG Further Reading

In the CCIE Routing & Switching Official Cert Guide Volumes One & Two, each chapter features a “Further Reading” section at the end. I have gathered together links to all the resources mentioned in the book, with a couple of exceptions. The exceptions are for the couple of items that are not actually covered on the current exam (like RGMP). Other exceptions include updating (where possible) links referencing IOS v12 documentation to IOS v15, since the exam is based on v15. Whenever possible, referenced books have been linked to Safari if available, or CiscoPress otherwise. Some information referenced in the book requires special access on Cisco.com. Those links have not been included here.

This information is also available in an Xmind file.

The sole source of the following information is from the RSv5 OCGs, nothing extra has been added. This in no way represents everything you need to know for the exams, nor do you need to know everything contained within these links. This is intended to serve merely as a convenience for the “Further Reading” sections of the OCGs and nothing more.

Hello everyone. Just a quick question. I know that someone can confirm if an person holds a CCIE. Is there a way to see if someone ever held a CCIE? I had someone tell me that they used to but something just doesn't seem to add up to me. Thank you everybody.

Passed v1 written and failed the v1 lab twice (most recently in July). A bit surprised to see dates available to me for the new v2 lab. Can I legit take the v2 lab without retaking the written?

So, I took the lab exam and failed, as expected.

My two big takeaways are the I need to work on my speed and that I need to figure out how their terminal program is setup. Working with it's setup was well out of my wheelhouse and caused me significant issues.

On the plus side, thanks to you guys, I was able to get a lot of good info out of it. As predicted, it was all gone very quickly, but I managed to get tons of it down before it faded.

I ended up staying a a motel name The Caravelle Suites. It was more run down than I expected from the pictures, but it was clean and, completely luck on my part, it is a single 20 minute trolley ride from the Gish station right out front to Champion station, which is right in front of Building L(the testing center). My only regret was that I didn't manage to get a Jack in the Box Bacon Double Cheeseburger. Between note taking after the test and flying out the next morning, I did not have time to make the 5 mile trek to the best cheeseburger ever.

EDIT: Thank you guys for your advice!!!!!

Hey guys,

Bought a pc a while back, but to be honest with work and all I need something more mobile to study on the commute etc.

Really heavily considering a Mac I’ve seen I can get an i5, 256gb ssd and 16gb ram for around £1500. Which was a similar price to laptops I was looking at before

I’ve not used Mac before personally, I did have a copy of workstation on windows... so from a bit of research I believe I need Vmware fusion (is that correct?)

Can anyone share experiences with Mac and GNS3 VM.. I had a copy of virl so exported IOSv and IOSvl2 for is the CCIE labs I am going to do so that spec should hopefully be more than suffice

Cheers

My CCIE expires in November 2019. I have enough points now to derertify. Anyone know If I submit them now, would it add 2 years to the 2019 date or 2 years from the day I submit the credits?

So my first lab attempt is next week. Last i checked, the average was 2.4 attempts to pass. I fully expect to fail. What is my best shot for getting the most out of this so that it’s not a wasted attempt? Any advice is appreciated.

I've been told that Narbik's 5-day CIERS I boot camp is a good place to start (as it comes with the "Foundations" workbook). Is this true? If so, how far out should I get it scheduled so that I can do the work book?

I'm looking for someone to bounce problems and ideas off of for the R&S Lab. I'm very far along but ideally need someone to talk through some things and vice versa. I just failed my second attempt yesterday but was pretty close. Feel free to PM if you're interested, or if anyone generally needs some information (that doesn't violate NDA) that in the process as well. Thanks!

For those that have failed and then finally passed, what did you do keep going and get there. Did you take time off to recoup, did you change your study plan? Did you spend most of your study time re-labing and mock labing?

I’ve gone through INE’s entire ATC, troubleshooting, and Cram, and their workbooks.

That fail, while kinda expected, hits hard.

Hey!

As the CCIE Collaboration exam (both written and lab) has changed, have you heard of any vendors saying when they will be ready with new self-learning materials?
On collabcert all I've found is Vik commenting in a post that he'll have information closer to the date of the new exam (which is kind of now :P)

I've also read somewhere that INE is preparing the new materials, but not sure about it.

Is the difficulty comparable to the actual test? And does it test all of the exam topics at the appropriate level? I'm really just looking for something to prove that I am ready to sit for the R&S written.

Hi Expert !

I'm currently studying for my CCNP route and encounter a redistribute problem.

Sorry for my english. I'm not really good at it.

The topology i used :

https://imgur.com/SYrpMrU

R6 R7 R8 running EIGRP

R7 R8 R9 running OSPF

R6 redistribute it connected route 5.5.5.0/24

R7 R8 redistribute EIGRP route (5.5.5.0/24) but R7 using E1 metric 199 and R8 using E2 metric 200.

The OSPF route's hierarchy is Intra area > inter area > E1 > E2 ( E2 cost doesn't change )

R7#sh run | sec ospf

I was wondering what is the best website or company to lab CCIE Data Center technologies and configure topologies so that i can get some "hands on" experience?

I currently have INE AAP and like 600 tokens but it seems that you need to rent the lab for a whole week which equates to like 800+ tokens.... i'm currently looking to familiarize myself with the technologies and get some hands on experience configuring different technologies in conjunction with each other... (not in process on cramming mode for a week or anything in the perspective(not for 6+ months atleast)).. Any suggestions on rack rental websites or if i should just buy a server blade... and then create VMs in there.... I have a feeling this will be more expensive even in the long run since electricity in my state is expensive but could help me long term after the CCIE to lab different topologies.

I know Routing TCP/IP has a section dedicated to multicast, but is that sufficient coverage? Or should I go out and buy a multicast book?

I am studying hard towards my R&S written and I have seen INE offers a CCIE Written Bootcamp.

I cannot find any recent reviews and would be interested to get peoples thoughts on the quality and if it is worth doing?

Hey all, actually i was thinking of taking CCIE Security V5.0, but it just want to ask is it on demand or no, does a lot of employers searching for people holding this certificate nowadays?, actually i have CISSP & OSCP and i am thinking to take it to help me working as security consultant or architect who can design or consult about network security and penetration testing.

I've never once encountered it on an enterprise network. I mean sure, I've dealt with DSL circuits on occasion, but never without a provider-owned modem to terminate the PPPoE connection.

Did Telcos not provide modems back in the day? Was the customer expected to configure their equipment to initiate PPPoE sessions?

I am trying to build the advance technology topology in VIRL, but cant get my head around the DMVPN cloud that INE has in their topology. How to do the physical connections? Thanks in advance!!

You can find the advance technology lab topology here: INE Topology

Hi,

Lately I'm was testing more and more with EVE-NG and working with INE CCIE R&S v5 workbook. The problem was that the original network diagram and initial configuration files were designed for CSR1000v (directly hosted on an ESXi supervisor) and real switches. I have that, working great, but is a bit more effort to add a new router if needed, links, etc..

So, I've adapted the INE's CCIE R&S v5 topology to fit EVE-NG using vIOS images. Initial configuration files have been also adapted to fit the L2 vIOS port naming convention.

You may argue why vIOS and not CSR1000v for the routers, is just because vIOS-L3 images are less resource hungry when compared with CSR. And the vIOS-L2 is just because you may not have physical switches to bundle the virtual and physical one together in one topology.

Btw, I'm planning a new topology in EVE-NG using CSR1000v for routers and vIOS-L2 for switches.

If you're interested to give it a go or read more about it's on my blog: https://firstdigest.com/2018/06/ines-ccie-rs-v5-topology-for-eve-ng/ You can download there the files for EVE-NG topology and initial configuration files. Please don't ask me about vIOS images or the workbooks from INE :)

@Moderators, if you see this as inappropriate to add link back to my blog, just let me know and I'll delete the link.

My first thread - http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/ccie/comments/8d1n89/rs_lab_booked/

Took route switch today in RTP. No dice.

I will take it again in December.

I missed something fundamental on config that screwed up the rest of it. That didn’t really matter since I boned both 4 point TS tickets.

Anyway.. I don’t have to study tonight and it’s goddamn beer:30.
