There are two PDFs, one has the questions, the second has the questions with correct answers, and explanations. Open the first one, go through and answer the questions, then see how you did by looking at the answers document.

One of the questions states that cfgenable also performs a cfgsave. Is this also true in Web Tools?

Hello,

Thank you so much for share this great document.

I have a doubt:

" Question 29) You are troubleshooting connection problems using ClearLink Diagnostics (D_Port). Which three topologies are supported? (Choose three.) .

Answers:  A) Long distance ISLs,  B) Access Gateway to switch links , E) ICLs.

 

According Student Guide ( page 60) my perception is that ICL is not supported.

 

Fragment: " D_Port configuration is not supported on inter-chassis link (ICL) ports, EX_Ports, F_Ports, or N_Ports (both in

Access Gateway and Host Bus Adapters) ... "

 

Could you please check if  ICL is correct  answer ? 

 

Thank you so much.

With the initial FOS v7.0 release:

D_Port configuration is not supported on inter-chassis link (ICL) ports, EX_Ports, F_Ports, or N_Ports (both in Access Gateway and Host Bus Adapters). Brocade 16Gb FA1860 HBA does support D_Port.

 

From FOS v7.1  

D_Ports are supported on ICL ports.

On QSFP+ ICL ports that are configured as D_Ports, only link traffic test and link distance measurement tests are done. Electrical and Optical loopback tests are not supported.

 

From FOS v7.2.1 the command is also supported on 8Gb LWL/ELWL Brocade-branded SFPs on 16Gb-capable platforms.

Electrical and Optical loopback tests are not supported.

 

The D_Port is used solely for the purpose of running link-level diagnostics between two switches, switch-HBA, AG-AG, or AG-HBA and to isolate link level fault on the port, in the small form factor pluggable (SFP), or in the cable.

 

D_Port configuration is not supported on EX_Ports and ports configured in encryption mode or compression mode.

      Either run the CLearLink diagnostic before configuring as an EX_Port or Admin Disable the EX_Port and run as D_Port. 

 

Once the ports are configured and enabled as D_Ports, the following basic test suite is executed in the following order, depending on the SFPs installed:

  1. Electrical loopback (with 16Gbps SFP+ only)
  2. Optical loopback (with 16Gbps SFP+ only)
  3. Link traffic (with 10Gbps SFPs, 16Gbps SFP+, and QSFP+)
  4. Link latency and distance measurement (with 10Gbps SFPs, 16Gbps SFP+, and QSFP+)
