About: This Cisco Nexus workbook or lab guide is made with the goal of testing Cisco Nexus switch features on NXOSv 9000 environment. It will help network professionals to not only learn Cisco Nexus technologies but also check and test new supported features in a lab enviroment before deploying in their production boxes.
Networking professionals can take full advantage of this lab by hands on practice on our labs to prepare themself for Cisco Nexus related exams like CCNP and CCNP Data Centre. Most of the features are supported such as L2, L3, vPC, OTV, FabricPath etc and work perfectly fine on NXOSv however there are some fuctionality which is not supported in this platform such as VDC, Fex and QoS. Network engineers are suggested to use task mentioend in this lab guide as they are given. All lab task are tested and throughly reviewed by our experts. Many of the scenarios given in the lab guide are based on real-world production. In this lab guide there are two topology labs used one is NXOSv 7k and other is NXOSv 9k. These lab topologies are available on https://racks.uninets.com and can be purchased at very reasonable rates. . The platform and lab name are also mentioned on top of each lab document. Broadly OTV and FabricPath lab tasks are being performed on 7k while all other lab tasks are being performed by 9k.
Network engineers are expected to have some knowledge on Cisco switching before starting these lab tasks. The lab guide study material builds upon your existing Nexus knowledge to help you better understand all the concepts that are in play when it comes to modern networks around the globe.
Completing this workbook / lab guide / lab manual can help you to pass the Nexus related exams, however, NX-OS is the Operating System which is used in Nexus Devices. It is different from IOS however, once you start using it, you will notice that It is very easy to operate.
