A guide for the TSHOOT Exam

March 7th, 2019 in Guide Go to comments

For the TSHOOTv2 exam we will encounter:

2 Simlets (small troubleshooting sim)
+ Multiple Choice Questions & Drag Drop Questions
+ 12 Troubleshooting Tickets (check them at the right-side menu)

Notice that in the exam, the tickets are randomly given so the best way to troubleshooting is to try pinging to all the devices from nearest to farthest from the client until you don’t receive the replies.

In each ticket you will have to answer three types of questions:

+ Which device causes problem
+ Which technology is used
+ How to fix it

One more thing to remember: you can only use “show” and “ping” commands to find out the problems and you are not allowed to make any changes in the configuration. In fact, in the exam you can not enter the global configuration mode!

    Has anyone come across an issue with Eve-ng where it functions properly for 5mins and then your console freezes; i think the nodes simply go down! It is quite irritating and i have not been able to diagnose this issue!

    I have passed the exam yesterday (9th September 2019) with score 948, all the questions in the premium membership, Multiple choices questions must read all from Jan2019-Aug2019.

    Important note about BGP simulation, The question shows you an BGP routing table and wants you to show the same table on R1,

    There are 3 IBGP and 2 EBGP, I checked the config on R1 and I see IBGP neighbors are in wrong BGP-AS and the EBGP neighbor has the wrong IP address, after I corrected them all, when I check the routing table (show ip bgp) it only showing the EBGP neighbors (Check) and 1 IBGP ( and not the other 2 IBGO neighbors for R2 and R3 (, I tried so many things but nothing helped, I think there is a bug in the question. I checked (show bgp summary) and I see the 2 neighbors are idle status.

    IBGP are: (R1) (R2) (R3)

    EBGP are can’t remember the complete address:

    Passed with 1000 today. 35 minutes left over. Most questions were a few minutes each taking time to check everything carefully. One question took maybe 10-15 minutes and caused me to stress a little half way through. Variation on Ticket 16 – IPv6 RIPng OSPFv3 Redistribution.

    On the ticket here R1> Ping IPV6 2026::1:2 YES = R1> Ping IPV6 2026::34:2 YES and you then go to R4 and configure redistribution. On my exam it worked that I had R1> Ping IPV6 2026::1:2 YES = R1> Ping IPV6 2026::34:2 NO which usually means Ticket 15 IPv6 GRE Tunnel. This foxed me for a while as I could not see anything wrong with the IPV6 configuration on either R3 (It didn’t have IPV6 tunnel command) Nor could I find anything wrong with R2. After wasting a whole lot of time I had a look at R1 and Lo and behold discovered that in actual fact I was actually dealing with Ticket 16 Missing Redistribution from RIPng to OSPFv3 NOT Ticket 15.

    Sh IPV6 interface doesn’t work
    Copy Run Start is NOT active in the SIMS or needed

    My advice is spend a few minutes after your first TT that you have nailed and just look at a show run for ASW1, DSW1, R1, R2,R3 & R4. Just a quick scroll down to check

    Trouble tickets from the list at the top of the “Guide for TSHOOT Exam” were:

    ASW1: 2,3,4 DSW1: 2,3 R1: 1,2,3 R2: 1 R3: 1 R4: 2,6

    Not sure what the other was

    MCQ: As per August 4th list, no others. I did look back to January due to a previous recent post but didn’t get any myself

    Q11 is definitely UDP not GRE

    D&D was debug commands

    BGP was in. AS numbers are different. I did check to see if the Loopback IP was there which it was
    HSRP was in too

    I used combination of SAM and common sense
    Client1>Ipconfig – see if you have an IP address first
    Client1> Ping then &

    IPV6: I used Dankie’s method from September 2nd 2019
    R1> Ping IPV6 2026::1:2 NO = R2: IPv6 OSPF
    R1> Ping IPV6 2026::1:2 YES = R1> Ping IPV6 2026::34:2 = NO R3: IPv6 GRE Tunnel
    R1> Ping IPV6 2026::1:2 YES = R1> Ping IPV6 2026::34:2 =YES R4: Redistribution from RIPng to OSPFv3 (remember I had a variation on this as mentioned above)

    Good luck and NO there is no dump so don’t bother asking. You are getting the questions and the answers here but you do need to do some work and practice actually working through the scenarios. If you can’t be bothered and if you can’t work out how to work the BGP SIM from the console, then give it up because if by some miracle you manage to get a job in IT you won’t last 5 minutes.

    @Anony mouse

    – can clarify for me on Ticket 4 – NAT ACL , which is the answer for the second part (NAT or IP NAT) ?

    – R1
    – IP NAT
    – Under interface Serial0/0/1 delete the ip nat inside command and add the ip nat outside command.


    – R1
    – NAT
    – Under interface Serial0/0/1 delete the ip nat inside command and add the ip nat outside command.

    I got a Layer 2 ticket. That PC 1 can’t get IP , DW1 can ping R4
    that mean that is ASw1 to DSw1 problem. but I checked trunk ok. access port ok. not port security.. i(t have use it but both port no error disable) both port on vlan 10. , and up /up stat..

    wasted 30 min.. than i pick ASW 1 problem and skip it.

    “hat PC 1 can’t get IP , DW1 can ping R4
    that mean that is ASw1 to DSw1 problem.” – its DHCP Relay problem on the DSW1
