    Hello can anyone confirm that if i pass bgp+mpls exam now then its validity will extend to 3 years as i know ccip is going to expired oct but whther can i give other CCNP paper later..

    @MB: yeah, if you become CCIP, it will be valid for three years even if the certification became retired. Retirement means that no more individuals can achieve this certification after the date of retirement, but if someone who recently became certified before the date of retirement, its certification will be valid for the period of validity which is three years regardless of the certification is retired or not. This is what I understand.

    Cleared my exam today, DODO is still valid, everything came from IPTUT & DODO. except one Drag & Drop.
    Q5. is changed, I was not getting the option for “redistribute static”, rather I got an option of “ip route something”, I passed my exam today with 959/1000. Don’t know where I went wrong. But still I am satisfied I cleared the exam. So be careful while attempting the exam.
    Thnaks alot everyone for sharing their experiences.

    Passed the exam today….took 20min and I was trying to go through the exam as slow as possible =). If you just want to pass the exam, only the DoDo 80question dump is needed. Scored 1000/1000. I would suggest using the INE Videos for MPLS and the new CBT Nugget video’s by Jeremy Cioara for BGP. Very informative. Thinks for everyones comments on this site. I”m CCIP certified now.

    Cisco web site says that CCIP certification is retired, now is CCNP Service provider, and you need ccna service provider in order to do this exam. does anyone knows something about this?

  30. Rst
    May 25th, 2012 at 09:27 | #30

    To boyi. If you pass bgp+mpls before 27 July and Route with Qos before 29 october, you are CCIP certified for 3 years.Then you pass SPCore and SPEdge for migrate to CCNP-SP without pass CCNA SP.

  31. boyi
    May 25th, 2012 at 12:03 | #31

    to Rst, thank you very much for your help. i will try to pass bgp+mpls before 27 july. but maybe is too much, bgp+mpls, route and qos before october 29, very hard!

    Hey Asmaa,
    I think you will not be able to get the certificate if you don’t finish QOS before EOL.
    Better to finish composite and QOS and then take your time for Route.

    I wish to sit for the composite exam within next 15 days.

    Colby Reading is coming in all forms Cisco Press, whteepapirs, Cisco site and blogs. I am also using IPExperts BLS which includes videos and workbooks. I have been doing the workbooks using 3750 switches and GNS3. Starting in May I will also start using VRacks (I have 50 hours to use). I have completed CCNP, CCIP and CCDP as well as the CCIE R&S written.This will be my first attempt. I have read that only 3 percent of people that pass the CCNP attempt the LAB exam and of that only 10% pass their first attempt.

  91. Amine
    June 14th, 2012 at 19:50 | #91

    I think I’ve found the problem.If we do a sh ip bgp on PE2*>i87.3.85.0/24 0 100 0 7000 i* 0 8000 7000 iWe see two roeuts for the network, and its preference is to go via the router (which is PE1). The reason for this is because it has less AS’s to go through (traversing its own AS of 6500 and 7000, rather than going via its own AS, 8000 and 7000). Despite the fact that there are less hops physically, it’ll prefer the least AS paths due to BGPs route selection process.So that at least points to why its not going to Peer 2 to get to Peer 1.Now, on PE1, when roeuts come back to be able to find the original destination, theres one little problem -ip route vrf Ca to on PE2 -ip route vrf Ca route vrf Cb the replies are not by default going to the addresssh ip ro vrf Cb | i [200/2297856] via, 01:52:20It wants to go via, but it has no route to get to that, as the default route is not there, and its not in its own routing table.I could be miles off with this one, but thats about the only thing I could work out :S

    June 14th, 2012 at 23:13 | #92

    I hear you, though I’m ok with tainkg the easier path as getting the cert doesn’t mean I stop learning. If you’re against tainkg the easy way out, maybe you should limit the amount of study materials you have access to, or quit labbing as a learning tool, or hell, may as well poke one of your eyes out. Doing all this with one eye would be even less easy.:DRegardless of getting the cert, I’ll still be studying, learning and labbing. I can’t get enough of this stuff. The CCIE is my end goal as well, but I need something to fill the time until I’m ready to revisit that road.The benefit of the cert is that I’ll (hopefully) get a little bump at work, or have an easier time finding a new job.

    Cleared my CCIP few days back.My path was Composite, BGP+MPLS & QoS.Composite paper was more like 50% for each BSCI and BCMSN and i encountered about 4 labs if i rbemmeer correctly.As for BGP+MPLS paper i had about 3 Labs once again if i rbemmeer correctly and the paper is rather easy. Completed the paper about 30mins. Know the fundamental and you wont go wrong .

    Nice article! My intiial assumption was that the neighbor relationship would have failed if the interface was missing the key and authentication was enabled for the entire area. Nice to see the key0 (NULL) is the default if no key is configured.I wonder why Cisco didn’t implement the Key-chain with OSPF? Would be much nicer to change the key in 1 spot vs changing it on every interface unless you use a different key per interface.

    June 16th, 2012 at 05:59 | #96

    I’ve heard the same thing, and had the same debate.I’m pelrnoasly going the two exam option because I don’t *want* the easy way out. The CCIP is CCIE prep for me, so the goal is to get as familiar with BGP and MPLS as I possibly can. CCIP is just something I pick up along the way to CCIE, not an end goal in and of itself.

  97. Jamal
    June 16th, 2012 at 06:50 | #97

    composite I was tilkang about BGP+MPLS. I’m already done with the CCNP, so I don’t have to worry about BSCI, thankfully.30 minutes for BGP+MPLS? Wow, that’s insane. I’ve read that there are only ~50 questions on it, which is less than I can remember on a Cisco exam. Thanks for the info!BGP+MPLS is looking more appealing, especially since I’m not paying, lol.

Either advertising the loopbacks via OSPF, or setting up static routes, would sort this out.That’s only a hunch though, I’ve not done a huge amount with LDP, so I could be way off base.
