I built a dedicated dynamips server a year ago to take on my lab - Intel quadcore, 4 gigs of ram... Got two 7-port USB hubs, a 4-port USB hub, 4 Prolific USB->RS232 adapters, 4 3550s, and 1 3560.

I built my lab out on 3640s - worked great...

Setting it up for remote accessibility - anywhere, any time, on my linux server under screen was probably the best thing I could have done for myself.

I built a fancy-dancy script to automatically generate lab configuration files based on Internetworkexpert volume 2, but I'll be honest and I only did two or three Volume 2 labs Smile

I've got a dynamips-only script at http://inetpro.org/wiki/IEWB-Dynamips if anyone is interested Smile

Congratulations on passing.

Your scripts seem interesting but also seem like alot more work than necessary.

What I did for the INE stuff is build the topology as closely as possible to their drawing. Then when I applied the configs for the first time to the router I just went to dynagen and did a "export /all INE_Vol3_Lab1". That created all my base configs in that folder for later use.

When I need to do them again I go back into dynagen and "import /all INE_Vol3_Lab1" then "reload /all"

Since I'm using real switches I did a similar action using the flash drive

Backup:
copy start /flash/INE_Vol3_Lab1.cfg.txt

Restore:
copy /flash/INE_Vol3_Lab1.cfg.txt
del vlan.dat
reload

So far the same seems true for IP Expert.

Hey, Baracuda1. I've got about 5 years of network experience Smile Your two years experience on the DSLAM side is great to get you into a NOC, but it's not very applicable to the CCIE R&S. I would recommend Internetworkexperts End-to-end program for you. If you have the time and money, I'd run through CCNA/CCNP before going for the CCIE.

Best regards,
JP

MrPaul, that's almost an understatement Smile I spent a few days writing and perfecting them, and only actually used them once or twice (I didn't do many labs). I suppose I'm mostly a tinkerer.
I enjoy scripting in various languages, working in c, playing around with virtualization and automation.

Most of my studying came from Internetworkexperts' Volume 1, and I just dragged/dropped notepad sections into dynamips anyway. So yes, the scripts are crazily long.
