1  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-222 / same here on: October 08, 2002, 06:51:05 AM
I am currently the sys engineer where i work and we are still running nt for servers and w2k clients as well.  i went through the entire course track and had hands on before taking any of the exams.  i am currently doing the plans and slowly migrating to 2k on 2 seperate networks.  i am the only one here to do it, so it's a slow process.

good luck, you will do it!
2  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-219 / No problemo on: October 08, 2002, 04:26:02 AM
Good luck on 219.  Don't think you will find it too difficult.  I was just glad to get them all over with.  

I never planned to get my MCSE, but got thrown into a position to do some sys admin work along with my original duties and went out and paid for the full course track and the exams were included so didn't want it to go to waste.  

Tired of studying microsoft and definetely didn't get the thrill of passing as i did with cisco's stuff, but another cert down that won't have to worry about later.

Best of luck to ya
3  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-219 / Don't think so on: October 08, 2002, 03:52:28 AM
I wouldn't say that it was harder.  216 was definetly easy for me, but I have a great understanding of routing and tcp/ip and the architecture since that is all i have been doing for the past 6 years.  

219 was fairly easy with exception to the reading.  most of the questions are straight forward and if you understand the subject and material you are reading, can almost be answered without reading the scenario itself.  there is at least one scenario that is quite difficult, but the exam as a whole is easy.  I would say that 216 is the most difficult, and 218 for the MCSA is a huge combination of 210,215, and 216 mostly 216.  

but for a short answer, i would say that 219 is easier than 216 for sure.
4  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MCSE elective exams / You are Correct on: October 08, 2002, 02:22:15 AM
Once you pass the exam, it should stay with you and count towards your MCSE.  Microsoft has final say in the matter as to what they wish to do with it, but in all of the cases i have seen in the past, it will continue to count even though it isn't offered anymore.  as to the retirement of MCSE 2000, i'm sure it will be the same as they did with the NT.  Even though they don't offer the MCSE for NT any longer, you still are certified!

Unlike others, microsoft hasn't required a recertification after certain periods.  they just retire the exams and come out with new ones for the up to date software.  

As for getting lazy, i would suggest knocking out all of your exams as close together as possible if you can afford it.  i saw questions from previous exams on all of my exams and found it easier to remember most of it if done together rather than every couple of months.  i took all 7 exams within a 6 week period.

hope this helps and answers all of your q's

Well, i took this one finally last week and passed.  was given the 5 scenarios with 300 minutes.  Took me about an hour and a half to complete.   passed 222 4 days ago finishing my MCSE.  gonna hang it up for studying any more MSFT stuff for a while.  going back to my true love and gonna do the CCIE.
6  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-222 / Congrats on: October 08, 2002, 01:47:48 AM
Congrats JD, I finished this one on the 5th finishing my MCSE.  good luck on 216.  I thought it was one of the easier exams, but not the case for most.  Cheesy
7  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-219 / Congrats on your pass on: September 24, 2002, 07:52:45 AM
Congrats on your pass,

I have been going to some of the classes but putting off the exams due to work.  Started on aug 27th and been taking 1 a week.  done with 210,215,216,217,and 218.  take 219 sunday and 222 the following week.  Hopefully 219 won't be too difficult.  I have averaged about an hour on all 5 of my exams so far.  been to class for them and work with it every day.  

I think some of the overseas locations do things a bit differently.  I am taking in the middle east and was asked on test 1 if i had a cell phone, but no credentials required.  never asked for id card, no cameras in the room. there are 5 computers but they never have more than 1 person in the room at a time.  

I am from the states, but working over here and have taken quite a few exams at prometric sites and this floors me that they actually get away with such lenient policies.   Anyways,  2 more weeks, 2 more exams then it's off to CCIE.  

8  Cisco / CCNP / Access-list question..... on: May 16, 2001, 05:49:39 AM
i found out you can't do such a thing.  I had a guy in the shop trying to tell me you could, but i think he saw it done in a different product or something.  I know about ftp having to be passive, due to the changin port numbers.  not running firewall software at this time, but thanks for the advice. this is the way i have to go for now.
9  Cisco / CCNP / cisco jobs on: May 15, 2001, 11:36:46 AM
there are jobs out there, you just have to be patient.  don't give up on studying because you don't see the jobs out there.  a lot of cut backs are going on right now across the board due to the market.  Most of the guys that just are studying are trying to break into the market.  you may have to take a entry level job to get those few years experience as for the ones of us that are already in this field and are studying to stay ahead of the pack to keep our positions. just be a little patient.  if you give up and that job comes along, you will just miss it and it won't be anyones fault but yourself.
10  Cisco / CCNP / Access-list question..... on: May 15, 2001, 09:11:50 AM
This may be a tricky question.

I have a router that i have created an access list on to block ips from getting to two particular subnets on an inbound int.  those users are complaining that they can get out, but the sites they are going to aren't able to come back into the interface.

to rectify this, i have created an reflexive access list to allow sessions created within my internal network to go out and come back in within my time limit i established.

However, i forsee more access lists coming in the future.  I don't want to assign too many access lists to this interface.

i want to create one access list and nest multiple other access lists within it so that the router will look at the one access list applied to the int and call up the other access lists.  

I can't seem to find the information for nesting an access list within another access list with the exception of the reflective nesting which i understand.

Hope this is enough info for someone to give me a push.

11  Cisco / CCNP / no FDDI switches? on: May 03, 2001, 09:17:28 AM
Don't know if this will help at all, but
I know that they make fddi module mmf blades for the catalyst switches.   Haven't seen any purely fddi swithces out there.

we just use a fddi blade and tie it into a cisco fddi concentrator for our legacy equipment.  

Hope this helps
12  Cisco / CCNP / switching ????????? on: April 21, 2001, 07:58:55 PM
what the book is talking about is
say you have two or more switches.

to go across vlans, you need a router
or route switch module.

you can have multiple subnets in one vlan by adding secondary addresses in
the rsm or router vlan interface.

no different than adding a secondary address to a serial interface.

also, I'm not saying you are doing this,
but I wouldn't make it practice using vlan 1 for anything other than management.
13  Cisco / CCNP / cit->using telnet to a switch on a different subnet on: April 21, 2001, 07:52:21 PM
maybe i can help a little with this.

I think they are refering to it in a troubleshooting aspect.  if you are ever trying to run a trace route in a switch environment with multiple vlans,
you will never see anything past the vlan you are in yourself.  the switch has to go through the rsm or router to get to another vlan and does not send all of the information back.  They are stating that you will not see the routing tables for anything outside of your vlan.  

this also causes problems when using programs like sniffer in a switched scenario.  if you are using sniffer pro,
and try to monitor a box in a different vlan or on a different switch than the one you are in, you won't be able to see anything other than broadcast traffic.  they are trying to give you a workaround in able to see what you are looking for.

I ran into this problem in a campus switched environment and ended up installing a out of band network to manage all of my switches from one remote box to solve all of those problems.

hope this helps even if just a little.
14  Cisco / CCNP / still have problem of comprehension on: March 22, 2001, 12:59:33 PM
let me know what book you are reading from and the page number.  I will try to nail it for you.
15  Cisco / CCNP / need help..........who passed BCMSN on: March 22, 2001, 11:22:56 AM
