del flash:vlan.dat

frame-relay route 513 interface serial0/3 315

Well I got through the last workbook I wanted to get through sometime last week before moving back to the Internetwork Experts workbook 2. I started lab 2 today with a few dumb issues. First off I forgot to delete the vlan.dat file from flash before configuring the switching section. This didn’t play nice when it came time to prune vlans. It is always a real pain in the rear when you spend countless minutes troubleshooting only to remember you forgot to delete the file. Those are the mistakes that I can’t stand making, such a complete waste of time.

The other command was missing from my frame-relay switch when it came time to enable EIGRP. I spent another hour trying to figure out why the interfaces were not coming up and why EIGRP was not forming a neighbor relationship. I must have forgotten to check the up state of the serial interfaces on both R3 and R5 before moving passed frame relay. I must have just been overly excited to move and configure HDLC! I found the missing route when I was out of ideas on why the interfaces were not coming up. Sure enough it is always one of the first items I should be checking.

At this rate I will be buying a cold Cisco lunch for $1400 and the cost of the trip to eat that lunch :). At least I am learning as I continue to torture myself. I am coming to the realization that I am going to just need to break my labs up between two to three days. Too much to do at night when I get home.

Either way I am not feeling all that comfortable about my mock lab on April 14th, or the real lab for that matter.
