Re: ECMS Practice Question - Mar 19th

I am not sure if this question is really accurate. Why?

Spoiler
I assume that only one answer is correct as there is no "choose two". Based on the port-icons, a) and b) are correct answers. But if you only have to choose one, it has to be d) as c) could als be correct. But it doesn't have to be because just connecting the stack-cables doesn't make it a stack-member.

And again, I don't get the two hints above ... 😪😫 

 

BTW: The answer is song four on side one of "The Miracle".

(Ok, the millennials will now say "side one???" what is he talking about??? ...)

@KarstenI your logic is perfect, I agree entirely but went with my option as the other isn't a choice...

Maybe you are overthinking it? 
If it was a member of a stack with no active POE usage and no internet uplink and one port STP blocked ....What would it look like?  All the things they havent told you or shown you cannot be a factor in this question surely?

@AB_LaDigue67 perfect point, as there is no UL then our chosen answer has to be true!

Yes, I heard that before .. But it really was only a flaw in my logic!

It has to be a stack as the uplink port has to be available. If it would not be a stack, the uplink-port had to be on this device.

Re: ECMS Practice Question - Mar 19th

@KarstenII have not got a stack at home but wondered would the status be green on those icons if stack cables just plugged in?   Orange maybe?

@AB_LaDigue67 @KarstenI was right that they go green just by being connected, but every non stacked switch needs an UL if is is connected to the dashboard in the ☁️

Re: ECMS Practice Question - Mar 19th

When I configure remotely a stack the cables are typically already connected by the on-site technician. I do not remember it not to be green when I start with it. But I would not vouch for it. After configuring, it often turns temporary orange complaining about wrong DNS or VLAN.
