CISCO CCNA Exam – Q163

Which of these statements correctly describes the state of the switch once the boot process has been completed?

A. As FastEthernet0/12 will be the last to come up, it will be blocked by STP.
B. Remote access management of this switch will not be possible without configuration change.
C. More VLANs will need to be created for this switch.
D. The switch will need a different IOS code in order to support VLANs and STP.

Correct Answer: B

Notice the line, which says “Interface VLAN1, changed state to administratively down”. This shows that VLAN1 is shut down. Hence remote management of this switch is not possible unless VLAN1 is brought back up. Since VLAN1 is the only interface shown in the output, you have to assume that no other VLAN interface has been configured with an IP Address.

Incorrect Answers:
A. Whether a port is blocked or not by STP does not depend on the order in which the port became active.
C. Whether or not more VLANs are needed is not clear form the output.
D. 12.2(25)SEE2 LANBASE IOS code is capable of handling VLANs and STP. In general any 12.2 code can handle these features.
