What is the problem with an interface if you type show interface serial 0 and receive the following message? "Serial0 is administratively down, line protocol is down."
If an interface is shut down, the show interface command will show the interface as administratively shut down. (It is possible that no cable is attached, but you can't tell that from this message.)
If you delete the contents of NVRAM and reboot the router, what mode will you be in?
If you delete the startup-config and reload the router, the router will automatically enter setup mode. You can also type setup from privileged mode at any time.
You want to totally reinitialize the router and replace the current running-config with the current startup-config. What command will you use?
To completely replace the running-config with the startup-config, you must reload the router. Note : You may have picked option C, which isn't a bad answer. Remember, though, it doesn't replace the configuration, it appends it.
Which command will show you whether a DTE or a DCE cable is plugged into serial 0?
The show controllers serial 0 command will show you whether either a DTE or DCE cable is connected to the interface. If it is a DCE connection, you need to add clocking with the clock rate command.
You set the console password, but when you display the configuration, the password doesn't show up; it looks like this:
[output cut] Line console 0 Exec-timeout 1 44 Password 7098C0BQR Login [output cut]
What cause the password to be stored like this?
The command service password-encryption, from global configuration mode, will encrypt the passwords.
