increases redundancy to Layer 3 devices
decreases the chance of a spanning-tree loop

switch 1 set to auto; switch 2 set to on.​

10. Which three options must match in order to establish an EtherChannel between two directly connected switches? (Choose three.)

port numbers that are used for the EtherChannel
VLAN memberships of the interfaces that are used for EtherChannel*
domain names on the switches
speed of the interfaces that are used for EtherChannel*
duplex settings of the interfaces that are used for EtherChannel*
port security settings on the interfaces that used for EtherChannel

11. A network administrator is configuring an EtherChannel link between switches SW1 and SW2 by using the command SW1(config-if-range)# channel-group 1 mode passive. Which command must be used on SW2 to enable this EtherChannel?

SW2(config-if-range)# channel-group 1 mode auto
SW2(config-if-range)# channel-group 1 mode active*
SW2(config-if-range)# channel-group 1 mode passive
SW2(config-if-range)# channel-group 1 mode desirable

12. Refer to the exhibit.

An EtherChannel was configured between switches S1 and S2, but the interfaces do not form an EtherChannel. What is the problem?

The interface port-channel number has to be different on each switch.
The switch ports were not configured with speed and duplex mode.
The switch ports have to be configured as access ports with each port having a VLAN assigned.​
The EtherChannel was not configured with the same allowed range of VLANs on each interface.*

13. Refer to the exhibit.

A network administrator has decided that an EtherChannel between ports 0/1 and 0/2 on switches S1 and S2 would help performance. After making the configuration, the administrator notices no performance gain. Based on the output that is shown, what two possible assumptions could a network administrator make? (Choose two.)

The EtherChannel bundle is working.
The EtherChannel bundle is not working.*
One of the ports on S2 was not configured correctly.*
Switch S2 did not use a compatible EtherChannel mode.
LACP and PAgP were both used to form the EtherChannel.
Switch S2 must be configured so that the maximum number of port channels is increased.

14. Refer to the exhibit.

A network administrator issued the show etherchannel summary command on the switch S1. What conclusion can be drawn?

The EtherChannel is suspended.
The EtherChannel is not functional.*
The port aggregation protocol PAgP is misconfigured.
FastEthernet ports Fa0/1, Fa0/2, and Fa0/3 do not join the EtherChannel.

15. Refer to the exhibit.

Based on the command output shown, what is the status of the EtherChannel?

The EtherChannel is dynamic and is using ports Fa0/10 and Fa0/11 as passive ports.
The EtherChannel is down as evidenced by the protocol field being empty.
The EtherChannel is partially functional as indicated by the P flags for the FastEthernet ports.
The EtherChannel is in use and functional as indicated by the SU and P flags in the command output.*

16. What is a requirement to configure a trunking EtherChannel between two switches?

The participating interfaces must be physically contiguous on a switch.
The allowed range of VLANs must be the same on both switches.*
The participating interfaces must be on the same module on a switch.
The participating interfaces must be assigned the same VLAN number on both switches.

17. What is the purpose of HSRP?

It provides a continuous network connection when a router fails.*
It prevents a rogue switch from becoming the STP root.
It enables an access port to immediately transition to the forwarding state.
It prevents malicious hosts from connecting to trunk ports.

18. Which nonproprietary protocol provides router redundancy for a group of routers which support IPv4 LANs?
