Brian Dennis and I will also be running a 3 week bootcamp in Seattle WA in late October / early November for CCNA R&S, CCNP R&S, and CCIE R&S Written consecutively. More information about these live onsite classes will be available this week, but if you are interested in attending one or more of these class weeks please contact the INE sales team at email@example.com.
We have a new feature on our All Access Pass streaming video playlists that we believe will help tremendously help you in your studies – but we’ll leave you to be the judge of that. We have added the ability for you to save unlimited bookmarks (and take notes on those bookmarks) for each video playlist you have in your online, streaming All Access Pass. Please login to your members account, then navigate to one of the streaming video playlists in order to access the new bookmark feature (i.e. you won’t see it on the sample video playlists).
Here is a sample screenshot of the new feature in action. Click to see it larger.
By the way, one other important thing to note about this new feature is that if you take a bookmark, it is not specific to the streaming quality that you chose when saving the bookmark. So if you were watching in the “High” quality, and save a bookmark for a specific spot, you can always choose a different quality level (e.g. “HD”) and then click your bookmark, or vice-versa, to watch that bookmark at the different streaming quality. Also, you will be able to copy the links from those bookmarks, and send them to your peers studying with you, that also have an INE AAP membership, and they will be able to access that same spot to comment on something important that you found, and would like to share with them. You will find the appendix to the existing video URL very
similar to that of the way YouTube codes theirs, for easy use.
Enjoy, and be sure to tell us how you like the new feature and if or how it is helping you in your studies, in the comments section!
In order to maintain our products to the highest level of quality that our customers have come to expect, INE has implemented a new Product Feedback Tool. This tool allows you to submit bug reports for specific sections of individual products, such as the CCIE R&S Lab Workbook Volume II. This tool will allow us to better track issues reported from you, our customers, and respond to them in a more timely fashion. Currently the tool is available for CCIE R&S Lab Workbooks Volumes 1 – 4, and will be made available for other workbooks, such as CCIE Voice, Security, & SPv3 in the near future.
To use the tool first login to http://members.ine.com and select your product:
Time for another INE Voice Trivia Contest. This week we will wait until Friday morning to choose a winner, giving you all a few days to come up with correct responses.
Here is the problem that needs solving for this week’s Voice Trivia Contest:
Integration with an corporate LDAP has been properly setup and many users have been imported into the CUCM server, but now it has been requested that an LDAP Custom Filter be built in order to limit the imported users down to only a few.
The base LDAP schema is that there is an OU called “island natural exports” in the domain of “ine.com”.
The only desired users to remain imported are:
- A user with the last name of “Linus”
- All users who are in the department of “executives” that also have a manager whose canonical name is “Hugo Reyes”
Edit: This topology has been deprecated and replaced by a similar but simpler topology used in INE’s CCIE SPv3 Lab Workbook. More information about this topology is available here.
Per the request of many candidates, I’ve finished putting the final touches on the hardware topology that will be used for our new CCIE SPv3.0 Advanced Technologies Class and Workbooks. The topology consists of 20 routers – 2 of which are IOS XR 3.9.1, 6 of which are 7200VXRs, and 12 of which are 2600XMs – and 2 Catalyst ME3400 switches.
If you are interested in beta testing any of the content I’m working on for the upcoming CCIE SPv3 Advanced Technologies Class or CCIE SPv3 Workbook email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line CCIE SPv3 Beta. More details of the class, workbook, and rack rentals will be posted in the coming weeks.
The specific details of the topology are as follows:
A while back, in May, we asked you all what you thought of adding closed captioning to all of our videos, and your response – both in comments and private emails – was overwhelmingly positive. This functionality would not only provide better assistance for those with difficulty hearing, but also give everyone the incredible ability to search anywhere within any video for a particular topic or keyword that had been spoken about in the audio track, and immediately jump to that timecode spot in the video. This would every single minute of every video we have the ablility to be searched and subsequently accessed within just a few moments vs. having to watch the entire video over and over each time you wished to return to a particular spot in it for some remedial learning.
Well, you needn’t wait much longer.
