Last week a friend of mine just got his CCIE number. We have been together in a book camp last year in October. It was also his third attempt. And, as i heard from him, he was also quite unsure about his final result and could not believe what he has seen the next day on his CCIE profile. Congratulations to him. Also, because he did it, having a 16 month old child, that not always will let you do what you want. But as you can see, it is possible. It’s just quite hard to get motivated every time, but as you stick to it, it is possible.
So where to start, when your just at the beginning of everything and don’t know where to head to. Do you to build up your lab yourself or is it better to rent a lab? What study materials do you need? How much time do you need? What is the best approach for learning and for the cisco lab. Continue reading “Where to start study cisco”
Cisco has unveiled a new web site – LearnNetSpace – to help us in a dedicated forum to share problems and helpful solutions that many of us have learned through trial and error. Networking with your peers is a great solution. I was just viewing the web site, and WOW, what a great place to share and be taught. There is information on CCNA, CCNP, and CCSP certification, study materials, blogs, discussions, etc. Be sure and check this one out.
Just had the problem with VMware Workstation 6.5.3 5.1 Installing the ACS does not find SCSI hard disk. Always asking the hard disk size is “0.” The problem with the installation of VMware Workstation that is, for ACS bootdisc not possible to identify the SCSI controller. I must be a SCSI controller LSI.
With version 6.5 of VMware does not seem possible to configure the SCSI driver version on the graphical user interface. So we have to change the value directly into the machine vmx file.
You have to add the device driver in the configuration file vmware vmx virtual machine itself. It should look like:
scsiX.virtualDev = “LSILOGIC”
where X is the controller number. For the ACS would insstallation
scsi0.virtualDev = “LSILOGIC”
After this change of the installation should work fine.
i have been other failures:
OS: Red Hat
Disc: min 60 GB SCSI
After booting from the ISO image you have to enter “1” and wait a few minutes. Then input “setup” and enter the default values for the device.
Then, the installation is complete.
You will need to obtain a valid license after the entry in
Use “ACSAdmin” and the password given (or use “default”) from the installation process.
After switching to a new password, you must add a valid license file.
After i tried three different java versions, i managed to login to my ips 4215. I tried java versions:
With these versions the login got stuck at loading 92% of the configuration from the machine. Just told me “Initializing Config Modules” and got stuck at 92%.
Then the last version i tried did the trick.
Works for the https login.

So where to start, when just at the beginning of everything and not know where to head. You build your laboratory for yourself or is it better to rent a lab? What study materials are needed? How long do you need? What is the best approach to learning and to the laboratory.
I’ll try to answer some questions here and hopefully will be helpful in your journey to CCIE.
Written ist the starting point
First you must pass the written exam before they can even think of laboratory practice at all. This is quite some time.
Always check out the Cisco home page for the latest news on this topic. This must become the main indicator to go and where to find information about the lab.
