The exhibit shows a network topology. On the top, there are two routers, labeled R1 and R2. Under the two routers, there are two Layer 3 switches, labeled DS1 and DS2, . Under DS1 and DS2, there are three Layer 2 switches, labeled AS1, AS2, and AS3. Both R1 and R2 have two connections, one to DS1 and another to DS2. DS1 and DS2 each has three connections, one to AS1, one to AS2, and one to AS3. PC1 is connected on switch AS1 and PC2 is connected to switch AS2. There is a DHCP server connected on switch AS3.Refer to the exhibit. PC1 and PC2 should be able to obtain IP address assignments from the DHCP server. How many ports among switches should be assigned as trusted ports as part of the DHCP snooping configuration?
Explanation: The DHCP snooping configuration includes building the DHCP Snooping Binding Database and assigning necessary trusted ports on switches. A trusted port points to the legitimate DHCP servers. In this network design, because the DHCP server is attached to AS3, seven switch ports should be assigned as trusted ports, one on AS3 toward the DHCP server, one on DS1 toward AS3, one on DS2 toward AS3, and two connections on both AS1 and AS2 (toward DS1 and DS2), for a total of seven.
