10.8.4 Module Quiz – Network Management Answers
1. What are two reasons for an administrator to issue the copy running-config tftp command on a switch or router? (Choose two.)
- to force an automatic reload of the device
- to have a backup of the running configuration file in the router
- to overwrite the current configuration
- to transfer the current configuration file to a server
- to save the running configuration file to a remote location
2. What information can be gathered about a neighbor device from the show cdp neighbors detail command that cannot be found with the show cdp neighbors command?
- the platform that is used by the neighbor
- the IP address of the neighbor
- the capabilities of the neighbor
- the hostname of the neighbor
3. When SNMPv1 or SNMPv2 is being used, which feature provides secure access to MIB objects?
- message integrity
- community strings
- packet encryption
- source validation
4. What command must be issued on a Cisco router that will serve as an authoritative NTP server?
- ntp master 1
- ntp broadcast client
- clock set 11:00:00 DEC 20 2010
- ntp server 172.16.0.1
5. Which protocol or service can be configured to send unsolicited messages to alert the network administrator about a network event such as an extremely high CPU utilization on a router?
6. Which statement describes a syslog message severity level?
- A syslog alarm with a severity level of 7 indicates an emergency situation that can render the system unusable.
- A syslog alarm at the severity level 4 and higher is sent to an external syslog server by default.
- A severity level 7 message is only accessible through the terminal line.
- Severity level 0 is the most critical severity level.
7. What is an SNMP management agent?
- a database that a device keeps about network performance
- software that is installed on devices managed by SNMP
- a communication protocol that is used by SNMP
- a computer loaded with management software and used by an administrator to monitor a network
8. What are two characteristics of SNMP community strings? (Choose two.)
- SNMP read-only community strings can be used to get information from an SNMP-enabled device.
- If the manager sends one of the correct read-only community strings, it can get information and set information in an agent.
- Commonly known community strings should be used when configuring secure SNMP.
- A vulnerability of SNMPv1, SNMPv2, and SNMPv3 is that they send the community strings in plaintext.
- SNMP read-write community strings can be used to set information on an SNMP-enabled device.
9. A network administrator issues the copy tftp running-config command on a router. What is the administrator trying to achieve?
- copy the configuration file from the RAM of the router to the TFTP server
- copy the configuration file from the NVRAM of the router to the TFTP server
- copy the configuration file from the TFTP server to the NVRAM of the router
- copy the configuration file from the TFTP server to the RAM of the router
10. What is a characteristic of the MIB?
- Information is organized in a flat manner so that SNMP can access it quickly.
- Information in the MIB cannot be changed.
- The OIDS are organized in a hierarchical structure.
- A separate MIB tree exists for any given device in the network.
11. What data would be saved and where would the data be placed if a network administrator issued the following command? (Choose two.)
R1# copy startup-config tftp
- The data will be saved to a TFTP server.
- The data to be saved is the configuration that is stored in NVRAM.
- The data to be saved is the configuration that is stored on a TFTP server.
- The data to be saved is the configuration that is being modified in RAM.
- The data will be saved in RAM. The data will be saved in NVRAM.
12. Which command would a network engineer use to restore the IOS image c1900-universalk9-mz.SPA.152-4.M3.bin to a router?
- copy tftp: flash0:
- copy c1900-universalk9-mz.SPA.152-4.M3.bin tftp:
- copy flash0: c1900-universalk9-mz.SPA.152-4.M3.bin
- copy flash0: tftp:
13. Why would a network administrator issue the show cdp neigbors command on a router?
- to display device ID and other information about directly connected Cisco devices
- to display line status and other information about directly connected Cisco devices
- to display routing table and other information about directly connected Cisco devices
- to display router ID and other information about OSPF neighbors
14. What are SNMP trap messages?
- unsolicited messages that are sent by the SNMP agent and alert the NMS to a condition on the network
- messages that are sent periodically by the NMS to the SNMP agents that reside on managed devices to query the device for data
- messages that are used by the NMS to query the device for data
- messages that are used by the NMS to change configuration variables in the agent device
