Hi Mohammed,

this is something which will accompany you when doing certification preparation and exams.

Once in a while a question may be somewhat imprecise or answers even wrong.

One strategy can be the exclusions of answers that are definitely wrong without any doubt.

In your example that applies to answers 1, 2 and 5. You have to choose 2, so I'd select 3 and 4 - even when you know that 3 is not really true. In the exams you can comment such questions, but unfortunately it doesn't help when you fail.

But don't worry: You don't need 100% to pass!

Good luck,

Rolf

Re: VTP messages

Hi Mohammed,

following events make a switch request VTP information:

  • The switch has been reset.
  • The VTP domain name has been changed.
  • The switch has received a VTP summary advertisement with a higher configuration revision than its own.

So in that cases the own configuration revision number (Zero or lower than the crn of the domain) is not important for the rest of the VTP domain.

You can find the frame formats and additional information here:

Hope that helps

Just to complement Rolf`s answer, this is the debug of a switch that has no config (has been reset).

Thank you guys for the replies , fischer.rolf thanks for the links , and confirming my information , but what confuses me is that based on the information in the links ,the answer in the cisco material is wrong , because as you see in the picture the request advertisements fields does not have the configuration revision number , so the

configuration revision numbe does not exist in all VTP messages , that was my original inquiry.

Thanks
