Task 5.1 - Solution Guide Incorrect
Happy New Year,
I perused the archives and this forum and am suprised to not see any comments about this. This task does not specify any inter-AS peerings other than the peerings to the backbone routers, instead only intra-AS peerings within our internal network are requested. I thought this was strange right away when I drew out my peerings. The solution guide however does specify peerings between AS100 & AS200 between R5 & R1,R2.
Also, I am unclear about why the BW statements are called for in the SG. I do see some suboptimal routing going on here that these bw statements would correct, but correcting subotimal routing has never been a factor in my calculus as I attack these labs. As always, its entirely possible that I missed something here.
