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!

    It’s job experience that counts. A cert is just a cert. If we don’t practise it, we will lose the skill. All the best, everyone!

    Hello everyone,

    I see a lot of basic questions asked here. If you take the three tests in proper order, Route, Switch and Tshoot then you should know how to find the answers to the TShoot questions very easily. If you don’t know then refer to cisco.com they explain everything in great detail. Please study for the test with proper materials. Books, nuggets and the proper channels. Please don’t study just using networktut.com its cheating and will not get you a job. Its a disservice to all of the people who work really hard on studying and passing for these professional level tests. If you get stuck on a test and want to find the answer then checking this site for where you went wrong is fine. I just realized that the TShoot test is a multiple choice test. I thought that you had to make the actual changes to the routers and switches via CLI on the test. It will be much easier this way (MC). If it were a CLI based test most of the people who study dumps would never pass. With that said, I hope the best of luck with your tests and careers.

    I’ve wrote out the configuration of the topology for each device.
    For each device i have wrote the basic setting (redistribution, trusted vlans , PO’s etc etc)
    I would like to distribute it as an secondary topology-studie material. how can i upload it?

    Note :it is written from the topology given by Cisco, and not from the tickets and configuration listed here. It is ttherefor perectly as study material instead of learning the answers.
    can someone provide me an mail adress or something?

    Is anybody aware how we can link these topologies in Packet tracer? I have tried 1st Tciket for OSPF authentication where they said client is not able to ping R1’s Serial interface but actually all clients are able to ping R1’s serial interface. Also when I opened this topology with Cisco Packet tracer I can’t see any OSPF authentication configured on router R1. How we can load these topologies in packet tracer?

    Just passed and got my CCNP! Thanks to all! Most of the TTs are correct, had trouble with the IPv6 OSPF. There was no option for R2 ipv6 ospf 6 area 0 from what I remember. Fun test though.

    Is there anyone that knows the format of the exam? Will it be similar to a hot spot where you can read all the 3 questions while going back to the configs, or, will it be straight multiple choice after looking at the configs?

    Thanks!

    I answered my own question… I found this demo on Cisco’s web site for the TSHOOT exam.

    i have took the exam but did not pass
    10 questions were as in the Website i thoguht i have answered them right

    one new question
    Which I thought
    The scenario is like this
    Client 1 can ping upto the egriss of DSW1 m and DSW1 can only ping the directly connected interface R4
    When you do show ip eigrp nei
    You would get no nei for process 1
    Now this means I have different AS on DSWI and R4 but when I check EIGRP configuration both have AS 10, I could not see other problem it was clear EIGRP

    Second problem was the VLAN access it is configured on DSW1 but the Answer is only on ASW1
    Other question where for Area 12 summary Ip subnet address was given
