Description

ArubaOS-Switch is an alternative to the ubiquitous Cisco IOS devices, and learning how to resolve layer 2 loops, configure layer 2 discovery protocols, and understander simple layer 3 routing concepts are great skills to have for all network technicians and engineers. In this course, Preventing Switching Loops and Configuring Complex Technologies on ArubaOS-Switch, you will learn foundational knowledge/gain the ability to configure and verify layer 2 loop prevention protocols and simple layer 3 routing. First, you will learn how and what spanning-tree protocol to configure. Next, you will discover how to enable layer 3 routing on the ArubaOS-switch devices. Finally, you will explore how to configure and verify both static routing and simple RIP routing. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of spanning-tree, layer 2 discovery protocols, and simple layer 3 routing needed to configure and verify ArubaOS-Switch devices and interwork them with Cisco IOS devices.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Leigh Bogardi, and welcome to my course, Preventing Switching Loops and Configuring Complex Technologies on ArubaOS-Switch. I'm a freelance network architect from the UK. Now ArubaOS-Switch is an alternative to the ubiquitous Cisco iOS devices, and in this course we will be configuring layer two and simple layer three protocols to get you started on the journey to Aruba certified switching associate level. In this course we're going to explore the theory and get hands on practice with loop prevention, simple routing, and stacking with the ArubaOS-Switch devices. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include spanning tree options and choices, routing, so that's static and RIP routing, stacking options and choices again, in the switch models, and how they interwork with iOS devices where appropriate. By the end of this course you'll be able to choose and configure the appropriate layer two and layer three protocols to initially set up a network. Before beginning this course you should be familiar with CCNA level concepts. I hope you'll join me for this journey to learn about layer two and simple layer three networking concepts with the Preventing Switching Loops and Configuring Complex Technologies on ArubaOS-Switch course at Pluralsight.
