Hi everyone,

been quiet for a while, had to travel a lot last week. We have posted the updates to the IEWB-SC VOL1 “Hotfix” section:

IOS CA
IPS VLAN Groups and Virtual Sensor
IPS Event Summarization

IPS Blocking and Rate-Limiting
IPS Application Inspection and Control
IPS META Engine
IPS Anomaly Detection
IOS IPS

and to IEWB-VO VOL1

SIP Phone Endpoints
Basic User Configuration
CUCM OS Users
Softkey Templates
Phone Button Templates
Common Phone Profile
Directory Number/Line Configuration
Partitions
Calling Search Spaces
Gateway - MGCP T1 PRI
Gateway - H.323
T1 CAS
Route Groups
Route Lists
Route Patterns
Local Route Group

As for R&S, we're currently working on the new addition to VOL1, which outlines the troubleshooting process in general, defines strategies and provides troubleshooting examples. This is to be released the next month. In addition to that, we’re preparing separate troubleshooting labs to be delivered in addition to VOL2 scenarios. Those will use separate topologies and will use a trouble-ticket pool that we develop. As for technology updates, we’re hindering that a bit and giving more priority to the troubleshooting scenarios. Personally I believe that adding troubleshooting to the CCIE R&S lab is the most important change, as it affects the whole lab strategy

There were people asking for our new R&S rack topology. We delayed that announce, because the one we’re currently working with would probably be expensive for many people using their own racks. We’re looking for a ways to implement our workbooks on a hybrid, less expensive topology. But if you want to know what being used now – it’s 5x1841s for R1, R2, R4, R5 and R6 and one 2811 for R3. All cabling connections and switches remain unchanged. If you would pick up that topology, you wont miss anything (well maybe some money); but if you’re trying to minimize the upgrade expenses, we’ll do our best to make that possible.

Happy studying!
