NDG has worked closely with the Cisco CCNP lab team to develop BSCI labs that are compatible with the installed base of NETLAB+ router pods.
BSCI is supported by one or more of the following NETLAB+ pods:
The supported lab list (below) provides a list of CCNP compatible labs and the pod types that can be used for each lab.
To enable the BSCI labs, check the box for "AE CCNP BSCI V5.0 English" in the class settings. This must be done for each class requiring access to the BSCI labs.
You may also allow the class to make "pod-only" reservations using BSCI pod types listed above. To enable pod-only reservations, check the box for "AE CCNP Pod Reservations (no labs)" in the class settings.
These reservations are not tied to specific lab exercises. Therefore, the pod will be configured using the default network configuration. Please note however, not all BSCI labs use the default network configuration and must be completed by selecting the correct lab exercise (see the following discussion).
Always select the correct lab exercise for the lab being performed. Students or teams should schedule the correct lab exercise from the catalog. NETLAB+ will only show those labs for which the required pod type is available. A lab that works on different pod types may appear more than once if your system is so equipped. Instructors should select the correct lab from the Exercise tab during instructor-led lab reservations. This can be done as many times as needed during the reservation.
Importance of Choosing the Correct Lab Exercise
Several of the labs may differ from the standard pod topologies. This is handled by NETLAB+ Dynamic VLAN Mapping technology. Always select the correct lab exercise for the actual lab. This insures that NETLAB+ will set up VLANs on the control switch such that lab devices and PCs are placed in the correct LAN segment for the exercise being performed. Selecting the correct exercise will also make the completed lab output easier to find in the archive.
