It's the little things that get you - lab questions, tactics and strategy
So I'm in my final week of preparation and have some questions for you all.
Do you rename VLANs? Take lab task 4.2
Ensure the phone-connected ports using 802.1Q trunking to provide a “Computer Data” VLAN of 12, and a “Phone Voice” VLAN of 11
Would you actually name the VLANs Computer Data and Phone Voice?
Next question, if you're not asked to exclude any IP addresses from the DHCP range, do you do it anyway? I have a habit of always blocking out the the 1st 50 or 100 so I don't have to worry about conflicts with switches and such.
Auto-Provision, do you use it? I've recently started to and find it helps some so I don't have to grab the mac address and phone type. It also allows me to build out my users and set the phone as their device and the user as the owner of the phone and associate them with the DN. Which raises another question, do you associate each user with everything that is their's from the very beginning or do you only do it for the users you absolutely have to? I find it doesn't add that much time and then I don't have to go back and mess with them later.
