Task 1

Shut down all ports on all switches and configure the hostnames of these switches

Name them SW1 – SW4

Task 2
Configure ports F0/19–20 connecting SW1 to SW2 and SW3 to SW4 as trunk ports. You should use an industry-standard protocol to accomplish this task. These ports should never become an access port through negotiation.

Task 3
Configure ports F0/21–22 connecting SW2 to SW4 and SW1 to SW3 as trunk ports. You should use an industry-standard protocol to accomplish this task. These ports should never become an access port through negotiation.

Task 4
These switches should be configured in a VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) domain called “CCIE”:

Task 5
Create the VLANs 100, 200, 300, and 400 and ensure they are propagated to all four switches:

Task 6
Ensure that SW1 is the root bridge for VLAN 100, SW2 is the root bridge for VLAN 200, SW3 is the root bridge for VLAN 300, and SW4 is the root bridge for VLAN 400. You should use a macro to accomplish this task.

Task 7
Implement the following policies:
VLAN 100 should never traverse SW4. This switch should not receive/send traffic for this VLAN.
VLAN 200 should never traverse SW3. This switch should not receive/send traffic for this VLAN.
VLAN 300 should never traverse SW2. This switch should not receive/send traffic for this VLAN.
VLAN 400 should never traverse SW1. This switch should not receive/send traffic for this VLAN.

Task 8
Configure SW1 such that it’s the root bridge for VLAN 500. If this switch goes down, SW2 should become the root bridge for this VLAN. Do not override any of the previous tasks to accomplish this one.

Task 9
Create VLAN 500 and ensure the traffic from SW2 for VLAN 500 takes the following path:
SW2 → SW4 → SW3 → SW1
SW2 should use port F0/19 or F0/20 only if the path through SW4 → SW3 → SW1 is not possible due to a link failure.

Task 10
Create VLAN 600 and configure SW3 as the root bridge for this VLAN.
This switch should be configured such that traffic for VLAN 600 uses the following ports:
F0/22 from SW1 F0/20 from SW4
