Well the Prep Has Began



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


Some minor life updates

Well its been over 6 months since last post and lots of things happened, except for me to start studying for CCIE R&S. But I did get few new certs. Mainly I had to re-certify for Juniper and since my old certs are no longer valid, I was able to do JNCIS-ENT. I also took 3 training classes and passed 2 Carrier Certs: “Cisco Advanced Data Center Networking Infrastructure Support Specialist” and “Cisco Data Center Networking Infrastructure Design Specialist” This certs are for nexus platforms and new UCS stuff. I also was able to get F5 and Fortinet certs. So it has been a busy 6 months, but with a new job now, I would really like to start studying for written CCIE R&S and take it by the end of this year.

Passed SNAF (642-524) test

So I`m 2 tests away from CCSP, SNAA(642-515) is the next test, should be taking it in few weeks. Looks almost the same as SNAF just a bit more advance. Already thinking about CCIE Lab Set up.
