Finished the OSPF CCNP Portfolio Labs
All of this studying and labs (lots and lots of labs) are starting to pay off. I'm finally starting to grasp many of the CCNP routing topics without having to reference a book or look up how to configure certain commands. I went through the OSPF challenge lab and was able to knock it out in about 20 minutes which is pretty good. One thing about troubleshooting networks is that you can gain a lot of information just from looking at the running configurations and the ip routing table. Looking at the device log (show logging) helps you determine what happened and when, this is very helpful in real world environments. Next up is IS-IS and then the redistribution chapters which is gonna teach me a lot of new techniques I bet!
