R&S Vol II V4.1 - 1.2 Trunking - "other ports never become trunk"?
The lab is asking to "Ensure that other ports never become trunk ports". Am I to assume that all ports except the routed and trunk ports are to be either shutdown or set to "switchport mode access"? That would mean, I would have to seek for "other ports" on each switch. This task will use a lot of my lab time. Is there a better way to resolve this or am I reading this incorrectly? In the lab solution, it shows the "other ports" in shutdown mode, but I don't understand why only those ports were selected as "other ports". Can someone help me understand this? Thank you!
