This article is devoted for candidates who took the TSHOOT exam to share their experience. Please tell us what are your materials, the way you learned, your feeling and experience after taking the TSHOOT v2.0 exam… But please DO NOT share any information about the detail of the exam or your personal information, your score, exam date and location, your email…

Your posts are warmly welcome!

Exam’s Structure:

+ Some Multiple choice & drag drop questions
+ 1 Simlet
+ 12 lab-sim Questions with the same network topology (12 troubleshooting tickets or you can call it one “big” question). Each lab-sim is called a ticket and you can solve them in any order you like.

Topics of the lab-sims:

1- IPv6
3- OSPFv3
4- Frame Relay
5- GRE
6- EtherChannel
7- RIPng
9- Redistribution
10- NTP
11- NAT
12- BGP
13- HSRP
14- STP
15- DHCP

The problems are rather simple. For example wrong IP assignment, disable or enable a command, authentication…

In each tickets you will have to answers three types of questions:

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

When you press Done to finish each case, you can’t go back.

A demo of the TSHOOT Exam can be found at: http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le37/le10/tshoot_demo.html


+ In the new TSHOOTv2, you cannnot use the “Abort” button anymore. Therefore you cannot check the configuration of another ticket before completing the current ticket.

+ We have gathered many questions about TSHOOT exam and posted them at TSHOOT FAQs & Tips, surely you will find useful information about the TSHOOT exam there!

Below are the topologies of the real TSHOOT exam, you are allowed to study these topologies before taking the exam. It surely saves you some invaluable time when sitting in the exam room (Thanks rrg for sharing this).

IPv4 Layer 3 Topology


IPv6 Layer 3 Topology


Layer 2-3 Topology

    Does anybody know if in Premium Membership they supply GNS practice files or packet tracer to practice the tickets?

    @Ney CCNP

    I did not get the BGP ticket, if you refer to the BGP simulator, there are only 4 lines that must be added, although in the real exam it changes the IP of the Neighbor but nothing strange.

    Is Command it ?

    #conf t
    #router bgp 64520
    #neighbor IBGP remote-as 64520
    #no neighbor 209.165 201.226 remote-as 64525
    #neighbor 209.165 201.226 remote-as 64525


    #conf t
    #router bgp 64520
    #neighbor IBGP remote-as 64520
    #no neighbor 209.165 201.2 remote-as 64525
    #neighbor 209.165 201.2 remote-as 64525

    Question about authentication, TACAS/local, based on piece of configuration

    AAA and what will be the result with this configuration: it either checks the local database first or it only authenticate 2 listed users –

    A. It will check TACAS authentication but skip for the two users created locally
    B. aaa-new model not used and hence policy will not be applied.
    C. aaa- not used hence policy will not be applied
    D. Part of the script is reject
    and 1 more options

    Answer: (networktut)

    1. aaa-new-model command is not there in the script ; hence the script will not work
    2. Part of the script is reject (as 2 local username and password are there)

    Answer: (iphelper)


    which is correct ?

    I am wondering why we have this command in all other 15 tickets (redistribute ospf 1 route-map OSPF->EIGRP’ command) but, we are saying it is wrong in ticket #11?

    It should be like this: ‘redistribute ospf 1 route-map OSPF_to_EIGRP’ in all other tickets so we can recognize and correct it in TT#11.

    I do not see anything wrong with ticket #11 when it matches with other working tickets in regard of mutual redistribution of the two routing protocols (EIGRP & OSPF).

    Please help me here!

    I passed yesterday 9xx.

    1. all tickets from here
    2. all MCQs from IPHELPER June
    3. the IPv6 ticket with RIP redistribution to OSPF was tricky because there was also another problem – mask /123 on R2 and mask /122 on R3 (or the other way around) on the link between them. It was also the only ticket where SAM’s tshooting strategy did not work, the problem being that the ipv6 ping was not working from R1 to R4 or R3. All the other tickets could be isolated with pinging R1,R2,DSW1 from Client1 for IPv4 or pinging R3,R4(tunnel) from R1 for IPv6. I guess the /122 vs /123 thing and not being able to ipv6 ping from R1 to R4 or R3 are a bug. There was no option on R2 or R3 to change the mask of the IPv6 address so I kept looking on all devices and after quite a lot of time I noticed the RIP redistribute command missing on R4. I was initially looking on R2 and R3 because the ping was not passing R2. While writing this I saw Celia’s message from above – looks like she got the same issue. I forgot to mention – ospf area 0 was configured on both R2 and R3 on the correct interfaces.
    4. I got 67% on VPN – on the 1500MTU I did ip mtu 1400 + ip adjust tcp-mss 1360 + tunnel mode gre ip (in this order) and on the (the one with put R3 into vrf RED) I did and . Choosing to and is clearly wrong, since the issue would be the same – one router in default VRF and one router in RED VRF.

    Thanks networktut

    correction on 4.
    4. I got 67% on VPN – on the 1500MTU I did ip mtu 1400 + ip adjust tcp-mss 1360 + tunnel mode gre ip (in this order) and on the GRE tunnel is up but server or host cannot pass traffic (the one with put R3 into vrf RED) I chose put R1 into global routing and configure keepalive for correct state of link. Choosing to put R3 into vrf RED and R1 into global routing is clearly wrong, since the issue would be the same – one router in default VRF and one router in RED VRF.

    @nickname, did the show ipv6 ospf neighbor on R3 strategy for Ipv6 tickets not work? Cause if you did this and you saw one serial device then it would have been tunnel ticket.
