CCNP v7 TSHOOT labs require a different Enable Secret Password setting from other courses. Please review the information on enabling CCNP TSHOOT v7 labs.
NDG has worked closely with the Cisco CCNP v7 lab team to develop these labs and to ensure compatibility with NETLAB+.
All labs in the CCNP TSHOOT course are supported by both the Multi-purpose Academy Pod (MAP) and Multi-purpose Academy Pod w/ASA (MAP w/ASA). The supported lab list (below) provides a list of CCNP v7 TSHOOT compatible labs.
|3-1||Assembling Maintenance and Troubleshooting Tools||MAP or MAP w/ASA|
|4-1||Layer 2 Issues||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Three trouble tickets supported|
|4-2||Mixed Layer 2-3 Connectivity||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Four trouble tickets supported|
|5-1||Second Base||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Two trouble tickets supported|
|6-1||IP Days||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Three trouble tickets supported|
|7-1||OSPF Opportunities||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Four trouble tickets supported|
|8-1||EIGRP Blues||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Five trouble tickets supported|
|8-2||BGP Dance||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Three trouble tickets supported|
|9-1||Network Mirror||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Two trouble tickets supported|
|9-2||In Synch||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Three trouble tickets supported|
|10-1||Complex?||MAP or MAP w/ASA||Three trouble tickets supported|

|SBA||CCNPv7 TROUBLESHOOT Skills Based Assessment||MAP or MAP w/ASA|
CCNP TSHOOT labs require a different Enable Secret Password setting from other courses. If CCNP TSHOOT and other courses are enabled in the same class, it is likely that the NETLAB+ automation will fail to save configuration files, since the default password is not correct for CCNP TSHOOT.
To avoid configuration management problems, we recommend that the CCNP TSHOOT course be enabled in a separate class from other courses. Enabling this course within a separate class will allow you to set the appropriate Enable Secret Password in the class settings required for CCNP TSHOOT.
Create a new class to be used for the CCNP TSHOOT Course using the following settings:
The Skills exam is contained in a separate lab package and is enabled in the class settings separately from the core CCNPv7 TSHOOT labs. This allows instructors to defer access to the exams until the end of the course. To enable the SBA, select global lab AE CCNPv7 TSHOOT SBA - MAP or AE CCNPv7 TSHOOT SBA - MAP/ASA.
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.
NETLAB+ will configure the routers and switches with initial configuration files that include basic IP connectivity. Please verify this configuration by pinging the network interfaces before starting the lab exercise.
The routers used must meet minimum IOS requirements specified by the curriculum. The following recommendations are based on the CCNP v7 Equipment List (available on Academy Connection). Other router and switch models may be used. Please consult Academy Connection NetAcad Maintenance - Image & Hardware Support Assistance with Legacy Equipment and Software.
