Q: Config Process

By certskills October 23, 2018 09:05

Configuration file management can be simple – but have you mastered all the command? This next question attempts to make you stretch a bit even for what at first may seem like a straightforward topic.

The Question

A switch currently uses hostname SW1. An engineer connects to the switch and then does the following in order:

  1. Configures the hostname Alice command
  2. Executes the erase startup-config command
  3. Configures the hostname Brenda command
  4. Executes the copy running-config startup-config command
  5. Configures the hostname Cathy command
  6. Executes the copy startup-config running-config command
  7. Executes the reload command, and answers “no” to any prompts

What hostname does the router use once it finishes the reload?

A) Switch

B) SW1

C) Alice

D) Brenda

E) Cathy
