Course Overview
Hi everyone. I'm Ben Piper, author and IT consultant, and welcome to my course, Troubleshooting Cisco Networks: Infrastructure Services for CCNP R&S 300-135 TSHOOT. In this course, you're going to troubleshoot nine different problems related to DHCP, the first top redundancy protocols, HSRP and GOBP, network address translation, or NAT, policy-based routing, and even VRF instances. This is the fifth course in a six course series designed to prepare you for the CCNP TSHOOT exam, Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks, which is part of the CCNP Routing and Switching track. By the end of this course, you'll have the confidence to approach almost any problem related to infrastructure services. No matter how complex the problem or the topology, you'll be able to determine where to start, how to narrow down the problem to a layer, and even how to figure out what specific technology is causing it. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Cisco network troubleshooting with this course, Troubleshooting Cisco Networks: Infrastructure Services for CCNP R&S 300-135 TSHOOT, only here on Pluralsight.

Introduction to Troubleshooting Infrastructure Services
Welcome to Pluralsight. I'm Ben Piper, and you're watching Troubleshooting Infrastructure Services for CCNP R&S 300-135 TSHOOT. In this course, you're going to work through a series of nine trouble tickets covering, of course, infrastructure services. Now this is the fifth course in a six-course series covering the topics for the CCNP TSHOOT exam, Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks. If you haven't watched the previous four courses, do yourself a favor and watch those first, in order, before continuing with this one. This course is split into six troubleshooting modules, each focusing on a specific technology, or more specifically, a specific infrastructure service. You'll troubleshoot DHCP, the Hot Standby Router Protocol, the Gateway Load Balancing Protocol, network address translation, policy-based routing, and virtual routing and forwarding, or VRF, instances. If you're not confident in troubleshooting one or more of these technologies, don't worry because throughout this course I will direct you to other courses where you can get refreshers on these respective technologies.

Lab Setup
Well by now you should be familiar with this drill. In this module, we're going to load the topology for this course and I'm going to show you what version of VIRL and IOS I'll be using. But first, go ahead and boot up your VIRL server, if you don't already have it up and running. Now for this course I'm running version 1. 2. 83, with IOS version 15. 6. 2. T for the routers, and 15. 2. 4055 for the switches. As always, if you're not running these versions, it does not mean you need to upgrade, but you may want to check the release notes for later versions, just in case there are any bug fixes that may apply to you.
