Well I got through half of the lab tonight I got a slow start tonight as our main database at work came to a screeching halt after chewing up massive amounts of drive space. After we got that working I was pretty flustered, but able to get started.

One valuable lesson I learned tonight after doing my first rack time: always power cycle the rack when first getting access to it. I didn’t do this and was stuck on a configuration for ether channel until I realized there was some rogue commands running. I power cycled the rack and redid my configurations and the ether channel finally came up.

I was on Rack 12 over at IE, but some of the lab scenarios in the workbook didn’t match their hardware. Switch1 wasn’t connected to Router6 as in the workbook so I had to move past some routing on a stick and so forth.

Working on some ether channel configurations though really helped in understanding the material better.

Hopefully I can complete the switching lab and move on to the rest with Dynamips.
