  • Issue the reload command without saving the running configuration

Which statement is true about the running configuration file in a Cisco IOS device?
  • It affects the operation of the device immediately when modified

Which interface allows remote management of a Layer 2 switch?
  • the switch virtual interface

Why would a Layer 2 switch need an IP address?
  • to enable the switch to be managed remotely

What benefit does DHCP provide to a network?
  • Hosts can connect to the network and get an IP address without manual configuration

What command can be used on a Windows PC to see the IP configuration of that computer?
  • ipconfig

What criterion must be followed in the design of an IPv4 addressing scheme for end devices?
  • Each IP address must be unique within the local network

Refer to the exhibit. A switch was configured as shown. A ping to the default gateway was issued, but the ping was not successful. Other switches in the same network can ping this gateway. What is a possible reason for this?
  • The no shutdown command was not issued for VLAN 1

What is a user trying to determine when issuing a ping 10.1.1.1 command on a PC?
  • if there is connectivity with the destination device

Which describes a console port?
