9 What is the benefit of the auto-MDIX feature on a Cisco Catalyst switch?
dynamically assigns a new management VLAN ID
autonegotiates IP address information for initial management connections

places a port immediately in the forwarding state to reduce the time for the spanning tree to reconverge
Refer to the exhibit. What does the term DYNAMIC indicate in the output that is shown?
This entry can only be removed from the MAC address table by a network administrator.
When forwarding a frame to the device with address 0060.5c5b.cd23, the switch does not have to perform a lookup to determine the final destination port.
Only the device with MAC address 0060.5c5b.cd23 will be allowed to connect to port Fa0/18. The switch learned this MAC address from the source address in a frame received on Fa0/18.****

a decrease in the amount of broadcast traffic
end device malfunction because of broadcast storms***
an increase in throughput at all points in the network
16 Why is it important that the network administrator consider the spanning-tree network diameter when choosing the root bridge?
The network diameter limitation is 9.
BPDUs may be discarded because of expiring timers.***
The cabling distance between the switches is 100 meters.

24 How does a switch that is configured for 802.1Q trunking handle untagged frames that are received on a trunk port?
The frames are dropped.
The frames are assigned to the native VLAN.***
The frames are assigned to the default VLAN. The frames are assigned to the management VLAN.
Refer to the exhibit. What would happen if the network administrator moved the network cable of Host A from interface Fa0/1 to Fa0/3 on switch SW1?
Host A remains a member of VLAN 10, because the router is routing traffic between VLANs. Host A is no longer a member of VLAN 10, because port Fa0/3 has been manually assigned to VLAN 30.***
Host A remains a member of VLAN 10, because the switch provides dynamic VLAN assignment for the port. Host A maintains connectivity to all members of VLAN 10, because it is connected to the same physical network. Host A is no longer a member of VLAN 10, but because port Fa0/3 was unused, it is now a member of VLAN 1.
Refer to the exhibit. The devices in the network are operational and configured as indicated in the exhibit. However, hosts B and D cannot ping each other. What is the most likely cause of this problem?
The link between the switches is up but not trunked. The Fa0/11 interface of Switch1 is not configured as a trunk.

S2 will leave the traffic untagged when it forwards it over a trunk link.***
S2 will tag the traffic with the highest VLAN ID value when it forwards it over the trunk link.
30 What is the purpose of VLAN trunking?
It improves network performance by reducing broadcast traffic. It selects the best path to transmit data in a switched network.
It carries the traffic of multiple VLANs through a single link.***
It avoids spanning tree loops in a switched network.
31 A network administrator implements inter-VLAN routing by configuring subinterfaces on a router. What is one important fact that must be considered?
The physical interface must have an IP address configured.
The subinterface numbers must match the VLAN ID number.
The no shutdown command must be issued on each subinterface.
The IP address of each router subinterface must be used as the default gateway for hosts on the corresponding VLAN.***
Refer to the exhibit. The hosts connected to switch SW1 are not able to communicate with the hosts in the same VLANs connected to switch SW2. What should be done to fix the problem?

Refer to the exhibit. A network administrator is configuring RT1 for inter-VLAN routing. The switch is configured correctly and is functional. Host1, Host2, and Host3 cannot communicate with each other. Based on the router configuration, what is causing the problem?
Interface Fa0/0 is missing IP address configuration information.
IP addresses on the subinterfaces are incorrectly matched to the VLANs.***
Each subinterface of Fa0/0 needs separate no shutdown commands.
Routers do not support 892.1Q encapsulation on subinterfaces.
Refer to the exhibit. Router R1 is properly configured for router on a stick inter-VLAN routing, but PC1 is unable to ping PC2. What needs to be done to resolve the problem?

Replace S1 with a router that has one FastEthernet interface for each PC.
Add a second switch and divide the PCs so that each VLAN is connected to its own switch. Configure a router with two subinterfaces on one of its FastEthernet ports and connect it to S1 using a trunk link.***
Connect a router to a port on S1 and assign the IP address of VLAN1 to the connecting router interface.
Refer to the exhibit. This switch is to be added to the production network. Which two facts about VLANs and VTP operation can be confirmed by this output? (Choose two.)
The network administrator will be able to configure VLANs of local significance on this switch. VLANs can only be added to the VLAN database on this switch by a VTP advertisement.***
All VLANs that are configured on this switch will be sent to all other switches in the same VTP domain.
This switch will drop all VTP advertisements that come from switches that are configured in the same VTP domain.
Adding this switch to the network will cause no disruption in the VTP domain operations if the rest of the switches in the same VTP domain have a higher configuration revision number.***

Disable VTP pruning on SW2. Configure SW2 in VTP transparent mode.***
Configure SW2 with the VTP domain password.
Configure SW2 as a VTP server with a higher revision number.
Refer to the exhibit. Switch SW2 was tested in a lab environment and then inserted into a production network without reloading its configuration. After the trunk link between SW1 and SW2 was brought up, all users lost connectivity to the network. What could be the source of the problem?
All the VLANs were pruned from the trunk port between SW1 and SW2.
SW1 and SW2 cannot be both set as VTP servers in the same VTP domain.
VTP configuration revision number of SW2 was higher than the configuration revision number of SW1.***
The additional VLANs from SW2 created more VLANs than the VLAN database of SW1 could contain.
Refer to the exhibit. Switches S2 and S3 are properly connected using an ethernet cable. A network administrator has configured both switches with VTP, but S3 is unable to propagate VLANs to S2. What could be the reason for this?
