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.
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.
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.
I've been tuning our IWAN deployment and believe that there isn't much more that we can do to improve convergence. At this point I'm turning back to EIGRP to review the configuration for any possible changes we can make. Based on my initial review it looks like the traditional EIGRP routing timers are separate from EIGRP SAF, which has its own timers. EIGRP SAF is the mechanism in which IWAN propagates its path control updates.
My concern right now is that the default timers appear to be 120 second hellos and 600 second hold for SAF, so failing over to a backup IWAN hub master controller may take some time to detect and fix. While the /32 route for my IWAN hub MC loopback should be withdrawn relatively quickly, I'm not so sure about SAF as it seems to have independent values/operation. I don't want my branch offices holding on to a stale SAF neighbor longer than they need to.
I can't find a whole lot of information on tuning EIGRP SAF timers, so I'm curious whether anyone else has done this before and what if any best practices are.
I'm working through some WISP labs at Cisco Live this year and one of the CCIE level EIGRP labs required dotted-decimal route tags to be enabled. This is the first time I've heard of this option and I'm curious how many of you have actually enabled this feature.
It seems like it may be useful in very large environments (maybe service provider) so that you could identify continents, regions, states, and so on. In a smaller environment I can't see much of a use case versus using the traditional route tag numbering scheme.
I am sure it is luck of the draw but I received way more IS-IS and SDN questions than I expected. Got a 742 for my score. I plan on retaking it in a couple of weeks. Any suggestions on study materials for the SDN/NFV/IoT topics?
First time poster, just looking for some experience advice for you guys going for the CCIE or CCIE achievers.
Any of you guys used and subscribed to an INE AAP? I’ve checked in with work to see if they’ll sort it for me.. but failing that I may have to fork out so trying to gauge if it’s a good investment.
For me personally it would be £86 a month for 6 months or less for a year subscription so thought I would see if any of you guys or girls have had a good experience.
I Tried searching for study materials for ccie RS but still confused.
Is there a all in one book for the written exams? When I search on amazon I see v5.1 v.5 etc. Which one do I pick? Are there any all in one videos for IE? Is it possible to self study and pass the IE exam ?
Thanks in advance.
Anyone have experiences with cloud rack rental? I'm looking at INE's Security rack, and CloudMyLab. I could not find any reviews on the latter, and their site looks a but scammy. I signed up for a free account, and the welcome email had my password in it (in plain text), so I'm leaning toward not ever giving them credit card details.
If you guys have had experiences with them or any other service, let me know!
So after a few years of on and off fake studying I think its finally time to sit down and either really give it a try or make the determination it will never happen. I have been slowly collecting all the resources I need for studying for the most part from reading materials to lab equipment. I have decided that the best approach for me is to aim for the written directly and then focus on the lab after, with the understanding that a good portion of things learned will be required for the lab and plan to do technical hands on learning as going through the materials for the written. I am open to getting opinions on that but not my main question.
My question revolves around bootcamp training for the written exam. Is it worthwhile to consider taking a bootcamp for the written exam or should I save that time and money for the lab? In addition, if the opinion is for bootcamp for the written what would you consider to be a good bootcamp for the written? I see that there is one offered from INE for written, Global Knowldege has two bootcamps but appear to be lab based and the bootcamp offered by Narbik which also appears to be lab based.
If a bootcamp is a good idea, when should I plan to take it? Would it be a good idea to sit for the bootcamp at the beginning, middle, or end of my studies for the written?
Just want to ask what laptop model and specs are you using to build CCIE Lab?
How many router can it take (using your specs)?
What software your using to build your lab? Does GNS3 is enough? If yes possible to share what image your using?
What operation sys ur using (linux/WIn/Mac)?
Anyone here studying CCIE or recently passed ccie v5.1. Possible to share here your list of topics(Check list)? Does version 5 similar to 5.1 or there's a big difference?
What study materials did you use? does INE/CBT is enough to passed the exam?
To all passer what would be your best advice/tips to passed the exam?
Though I'm still searching for answer possible to share your experience.
~60 days out in RTP. I passed my written last June and boy have I been procrastinating.
My lab has been booked for 2 hours and I've studied more in these 2 hours than I have since June. Of course, I'm in it all day at work, so it isn't like I'm out of practice. Just off my study game.
I'm making a list of areas I know I'm deficient in, and I'm tackling those first.
See you on the other side.
I've been hearing alot lately that the future network engineer will need to learn python for their job duties. So I've started learning it, I'd say I'm barely above novice now. My question is, to what extent should you know It? What job duty requires you know it? Is it something that simply makes your job easier, or something that'll be a necessity?
Also, I've heard scripting helps you efficiently take the CCIE as well, how so?
Thanks in advance.
This is a mind map I created of nearly every topic covered on the current CCIE RSv5 lab exam. Includes configurations along with occasional explanations and examples. Great for both CCIE and CCNP, and for general quick-reference. Hope you enjoy it!
