    What is Cisco IOS XE?

    • [li]MST:
      Spanning-tree mode can be used to map several VLAN to a single spanning-tree instance.
      Spanning-tree mode uses the name command to configure a region name.

      [li]Turboboot is procedure used as the last resort disaster recovery procedure to completely replace the currently installed IOS XR software on Cisco IOS XR routers.

      [li].vm is file extension indicates a bootable installation file in Cisco IOS XR software.

      [li]When configuring an ACL entry, is network and wildcard mask matches IP addresses to

      [li] to are IP addresses matched by the permit access-list entry.

      NAT is performed by the CPE and also by the service provider router.
      NAT packets traverse three IPv4 addressing domains.

      [li]Refer to the output:
      ipv4 access-list FILTER
      10 permit tcp any eq www
      20 deny ipv4 any
      30 permit ipv4 any any

      The access list has been configured on the Gi0/0/0/0 interface in the inbound direction. Example Packets that are sourced from TCP port 1060, if they are routed to the Gi0/0/0/0 interface, will be permitted:
      Destination IP address:, destination TCP port: 80
      Destination IP address:, destination TCP port: 8080
      Destination IP address:, destination TCP port: 80
      Destination IP address:, destination TCP port: 80

      There are two types of NAT64 (stateful or stateless).
      The DNS64 server embeds the IPv4 address from the DNS A record with a preconfigured IPv6 translation prefix.

      [li]Refer to the output:
      ipv4 access-list FILTER
      10 deny tcp any eq telnet
      20 permit ipv4 any
      30 deny ipv4 any any

      The access list has been configured on the Gi0/0/0/0 interface in the inbound direction. Example packets that are sourced from TCP port 1050, if they are routed to the Gi0/0/0/0 interface, will be permitted:
      Destination IP address:, destination TCP port: 80
      Destination IP address:, destination TCP port: 80

      [li]GLBP is first-hop router redundancy protocol uses the active virtual gateway to assign a virtual MAC address to the active virtual forwarders.

      [li]BGP weight attribute on Cisco routers:
      It is only locally significant.
      Routes with higher weight are the preferred routes.

      [li]AS path is BGP attribute is also used for loop prevention.
      As RFC 4271 says, "AS loop detection is done by scanning the full AS path (as specified in the AS_PATH attribute), and checking that the autonomous system number of the local system does not appear in the AS path".

      [li]The permit access-list entry permits exactly to IP address range.

      [li]On the Cisco ME 3400 switch, spanning tree is enabled by default on NNI type of switch port.

      [li]Refer to the two show output examples below. The switch with the e8ba.70b5.7180 MAC address is the root bridge for VLAN 80.


      [li]Refer to the Cisco IOS XR commands exhibit.
      RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE7#install activate disk0:asr9k-video-p-4.1.0
      % Invalid input detected at '^' marker

      RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE7#show user all
      Tue Sep 20 21:39:00.331 UTC
      Username: admin
      Groups: root-system
      <output omitted>

      The router administrator is trying to activate a software package on the router but is not able to do so. The router needs to be in the admin EXEC mode.

      [li]During the BGP route selection process on Cisco routers, weight is BGP attribute examined first, to determine the best path to use.

      [li]NSP is type of service provider responsible for offering backbone connectivity services to other service providers.

      [li]Cisco IP NGN service providers can offer multiple services to their customers by using IP/MPLS is type of technology in their core networks.

      [li]ISPs use BGP is protocol to establish peering sessions in an Internet exchange point environment.

      [li]You are enabling OSPF on a router and notice that all the Fast Ethernet and the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces have the same OSPF cost of 1. Change the OSPF auto-cost reference bandwidth is single configuration can make in router ospf configuration mode so that the Fast Ethernet interfaces have a higher OSPF cost than the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

      [li]On Cisco IOS XR software.
      router ospf 1
      area 0
        interface gi0/0/0/0

      Is set of commands enables OSPF area 0 on the Gi0/0/0/0 interface that has an IPv4 IP address.

      [li]Statements about OSPFv2 or OSPFv3 authentication:
      OSPFv3 uses IPsec for authentication and encryption.
      On Cisco IOS XR platforms, OSPFv3 authentication can be configured at the OSPF routing process, area, or interface level.
      OSPF authentication on Cisco IOS and IOS XE platforms can be configured per area or per interface.

      [li]In IS-IS routing, the NSEL must always be 00 to identify the router.

      [li]You have just enabled IS-IS on the lab testing network. You notice that IS-IS is not using the optimal path selection based on the interface bandwidth. Currently, the IS-IS routing process seems to be selecting the best path based on the hop count.
      Change the default IS-IS metric on each of the router interfaces to better correspond to the interface bandwidth is configuration change can make to cause IS-IS to select the optimal path based on the interface bandwidth.

      [li]You have installed a new router and configured OSPF on it. However, this new router is not able to establish an OSPF neighbor relationship with the neighbor OSPF router. Conditions could cause this problem:
      Mismatched OSPF area ID between the new router and the neighbor router.
      Mismatched OSPF hello/dead interval between the new router and the neighbor router.
      Mismatched OSPF authentication data between the new router and the neighbor router.
      Mismatched interface MTU between the new router and the neighbor router.

      [li]Refer to the Cisco IOS XR configuration:
      router isis 1
      net 49.0001.0100.0200.1001.00
      address-family ipv4 unicast
        metric-style wide
      address-family ipv6 unicast
        metric-style wide

      This router belongs to area ID 0001.

      [li]MPLS PHP is implemented to increase the performance on the egress edge LSR. PHP allows the egress edge LSR to perform only one lookup to route the IP packet based on destination IP address and routing table.

      [li]Refer to the exhibit.


      MPLS LDP operations:
      The incoming label for is 16010 (which is allocated by the local router), and the outgoing label is 22 (as advertised by the next-hop router).
      The ImpNull outgoing label for the network means that the outgoing label should be removed when sending packets to the next-hop router, when the incoming label is 16003.
      The outgoing label of 22 for is learned from the LDP neighbor.

      [li]On Cisco IOS XR software, LDP is enabled on each interface, using the interface command under mpls ldp (MPLS LDP configuration mode).

      [li]REP configurations on a Cisco ME 3400 switch port:
      The port where the segment terminates is called the edge port.
      With REP, at least one port is always blocked in any given segment-that is, the alternate port.
      Use the rep segment number command to enable REP on the switch port.
      The port must be an NNI type and must be in trunk mode.

      [li]A VLAN is a logical grouping of switch ports that belong to these:
      The same IP subnet
      The same broadcast domain

      [li]Refer to the configuration:
      SwitchX#configure terminal
      SwitchX(config)#interface fa0/11
      SwitchX(config-if)#switchport mode trunk

      VLAN 1 traffic is sent untagged on the fa0/11 trunk port.

      [li]Refer to the partial configurations:
      ip routing
      vlan 10
      vlan 20
      interface Fa0/1
      switchport access vlan 10
      interface Fa0/2
      switchport access vlan 20

      interface vlan 10
        ip address
      interface vlan 20
        ip address

      Is additional configurations are required to enable inter-VLAN routing for VLANs 10 and 20 on the Cisco ME 3400 switch using the metro IP access image.

      [li]Refer to the topology diagram in the exhibit.


      Interface configuration commands on the Cisco ME 3400-1 switch Fa 0/1 interface are required to support the VLANs for Customer A to be trunked across the service provider network:
      switchport mode dot1q-tunnel
      switchport access vlan 30

      [li]2002::/16 is IPv6 address block is reserved for 6to4 tunneling.

      [li]When upgrading a Cisco ASR 1001 Router, to run the router using individual subpackages is the request platform software package expand file bootflash:image-name command required.

      [li]Cisco 12000 GSR is Cisco router platform supports running either the Cisco IOS or IOS XR operating system.
      The CRS-1 platform natively runs the IOS XR operating system. The c12000 platform, originally being an IOS router, can be upgrade to run IOS XR. However, c12000 hardware, including line cards (LC) as well as route processors (RP), must be checked for XR compliance.
      TURBOBOOT refers to a fresh boot of the router from ROMMON. TURBOBOOT is required if an IOS router is being converted to IOS XR or as a last resort disaster recovery in the case of CRS-1. If the router is already running an IOS XR image, there is no need to TURBOBOOT the router for an upgrade or downgrade.
      A new c12000 platform can be ordered prebaked as an IOS XR router; however, there will always be cases where an IOS running c12000 needs to install IOS XR.

      [li]You want to configure HSRP between a Cisco IOS and a Cisco IOS XR router for the subnet. Half of the PCs on the subnet are configured to use as the default gateway, and the other half of the PCs are configured to use as the default gateway. The intent is to load balance the traffic across both routers.
      IOS and IOS XR configurations are needed:
      ! IOS
      interface GigabitEthernet 0/0
      ip address
