I’m going through R&S Volume II Workbook for the final time before starting on the new R&S CCIE Version 5 labs. If you have any requests as to what you would like to see added to this final revision let me know.
The main focus of this final update will be the first 10 labs. My plan is that after the first 10 labs are done I’m going to go back and create a few different variants of these labs (one with more IP services, one with more IGP, one with just core topics, etc). Additionally I’m going to kill off the Troubleshooting porton and add in full scale Troubleshooting labs using our Troubleshooting racks (28 ISR’s and 4 switches).
Once this is released it will mean the Vol 3 and Vol 4 workbooks will be incorporated into the updated Vol 2. We will have two workbooks for the R&S version 4 blueprint at that point.
Update: I received a lot of questions as to the R&S version 5 update and this update. If you own the version 4 workbooks (Vol 2, 3 or 4) then you will receive this update free of charge. If you own any of the R&S workbooks (Vol 1, 2, 3 or 4) then you will be receive the R&S version 5 workbook when it’s released. All of the R&S version 5 material will be in a single workbook. We will start releasing the new technology focused labs for IOS 15.1T and 15.3T around July once this update is done.
If anyone has time this week and is interested in beta testing the new lab 1 from the R&S Volume III Workbook reply to this post. I would like a few more people to run through it before I release it later this week.
The new R&S Vol III labs are being updated and having VRFs, MPLS, MPLS VPNs, IPv6 OSPFv3 and EIGRP for IPv6 added. Fundamental multicast for IPv4 and IPv6 will also be included in some of the labs. The troubleshooting section has been updated. Along with the initial and final configurations, the configurations are available per section. So if you want to start at route redistribution, BGP, IPv6, etc you can load up to that point. Additionally the route redistribution is being standardized to follow the same methodology that I teach in my bootcamps. I’ve included a detailed walk-through explanation of the route redistribution solution used and why it was selected over other solutions so by the end of all of the Vol III labs you will be able to check route redistribution off your list of topics to worry about in the real lab.
Once the beta is done, grading will be added to lab 1 so you can have your lab graded. It’s going to take me about a week per lab to get these all updated along with adding in grading and finally beta tested before released. In addition to the grading, the show commands from the solutions will be available to compare with the show commands from your lab. This should be available within the next couple weeks for not just these labs but the new Troubleshooting Labs.
