Since I got a new job I now get approximately 2.5 hours commute each day, so I`m able to read and prep for the CCIE written exam. I also bought equipment for the CCIE LAB. I will be going in to details shortly as I start building it out. But so far I decided to do Dynamips with real switches.
The Server will be a i7-2600k 16GB RAM workhorse, the reason for such a beast is that I will repurpose it after to replace my current ESXi setup with a Q6600 CPU and 8GB RAM. I will be using 3 x 3550 switches and 1 x 3560 switch.
I will be posting pics and steps as I go along, so far everything I gathered came from CCIE4YOU.INFO and http://7200emu.hacki.at/
Seems that I settled on a theme and layout, might tweak it a bit later, but welcome, welcome all!
