Troubleshooting Cisco Networks: IPv6 Routing Protocols for CCNP R&S 300-135 TSHOOT

In this course, you will learn how to troubleshoot the two most popular IPv6 routing protocols: EIGRPv6 and OSPFv3, as well as redistribution with BGP.

Don't let the slow-but-steady growth of IPv6 sneak up on you! This course, Troubleshooting Cisco Networks: IPv6 Routing Protocols for CCNP R&S 300-135 TSHOOT, focuses on the quirks of IPv6, the differences between IPv6 and IPv4, and how those differences mandated new routing protocols. This course is not an IPv6 rehash of IPv4 routing concepts, but rather a troubleshooting lesson on IPv6 that uses EIGRPv6, OSPFv3, and BGP to place IPv6 in a practical context. First, you're going to solve ten different troubleshooting tickets covering complex IPv6 routing problems involving BGP, EIGRP, OSPF, and redistribution. Next, you'll learn about layer 2 issues and IPv6 neighbor discovery. Finally, you'll be learning about traffic filtering. This is the third course in a six-course series designed to prepare you for the Cisco CCNP TSHOOT exam, Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks, which is part of the CCNP Routing and Switching track. By the end of this course, you'll have the confidence to approach ANY IPv6 routing or redistribution problem. No matter how complex the problem or the topology, you'll be able to determine where to start, how to narrow down the problem to a layer, and even how to figure out what specific technology is causing it.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, I'm Ben Piper, independent IT consultant and published author, and welcome to my course, Troubleshooting Cisco Networks: IPv6 Routing Protocols for CCNP Routing and Switching. In this course, you're going to solve 10 different troubleshooting tickets covering complex IPv6 routing problems involving BGP, EIGRP, OSPF, and redistribution. We'll also cover layer 2 issues, IPv6 neighbor discovery, traffic filtering, and more. This is the third course in a six course series designed to prepare you for the Cisco CCNP TSHOOT exam: Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP networks, which is part of the CCNP Routing and Switching track. By the end of this course, you'll have the confidence to approach any IPv6 routing or redistribution problem. No matter how complex the problem or the topology, you'll be able to determine where to start, how to narrow down the problem to a layer, and even how to figure out what specific technology is causing the problem. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Cisco network troubleshooting with this course, Troubleshooting Cisco Networks: IPv6 Routing Protocols for CCNP Routing and Switching only here on Pluralsight.

Lab Setup
In this module, you're going to walk through the lab setup for the course. The process is mostly the same as in the first two courses, but there are a few differences. First, you're going to import the course topology into VIRL. The topology for this course is different than the first two courses, so be sure to follow along. After that, you'll get acquainted with the layer 2 and layer 3 topology diagrams for this course. Let's get started. If you haven't already, go ahead and boot up your VIRL server. You don't need to pause the video, just start the boot process, and keep watching. I want to make sure that you're aware that I'm running VIRL version 1. 2. 64 with iOS 15. 6. 2. T on the routers, and 15. 2. 4055 on the switches. If you're running earlier versions of VIRL or iOS, I'm not saying to upgrade them. Follow along with the course, and if you run into any problems, leave me a note on the course discussion page because chances are any problems you run into are intentional configuration errors that are part of the course topology, and not bugs in VIRL or iOS. As a general rule, avoid upgrading VIRL unless there's a specific bug fix or new feature that you need.
