Ethernet Switching Design Expert
A customer is designing a new high availability network and has decided to install a pair of
Ethernet Routing Switch 8600s in a hot standby VRRP configuration. Router 1 will be the
Master and will have an IP address of 192.168.10.1. Router 2 will be the slave with an IP
address of 192.168.10.2. The virtual router's IP address will be 192.168.10.3. What should be
the default gateway when configuring the network settings on all Microsoft Windows
workstations at this location?

A customer has a stack of Ethernet Switch 460s connected to its two core switches (Ethernet
Routing Switch 8600s). These Ethernet Switch edge switches are used to aggregate workstations
and other devices delivering mission critical data to the network core. Which configuration
should you recommend to ensure fast failure recovery while maximizing the available
A. 1) Disable the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) on the edge aggregation ports to avoid network
2) Enable STP on core uplink ports to avoid blocking links.
3) Enable IEEE 802.1q tagging on uplink ports.
B. 1) Configure Distributed MLT (DMLT) on the edge switches and enable SMLT at the core.
2) Enable IEEE 802.1q tagging on the MLT ports and enable Virtual Router Redundancy
Protocol (VRRP) at the core.
C. 1) Configure the edge switches into three separate VLANs.
2) Configure Multi-Link Trunking (MLT) on each of the edge switches and Split Multi-Link
Trunking (SMLT) on the core switches.
3) Enable IEEE 802.1q tagging on the MLT ports.
D. 1) Configure the edge switches into three separate VLANs.
2) Ensure that each VLAN has its own Spanning Tree Group (STG).
3) Make Ethernet Routing Switch 8600-1 the primary link for Ethernet Switch #1 and #3, and
