16. Which statement is true about the running configuration file in a Cisco IOS device?
- It affects the operation of the device immediately when modified.
- It is stored in NVRAM.
- It should be deleted using the erase running-config command.
- It is automatically saved when the router reboots.
17. Which two statements are true regarding the user EXEC mode? (Choose two.)
- All router commands are available.
- Global configuration mode can be accessed by entering the enable command.
- The device prompt for this mode ends with the “>” symbol.
- Interfaces and routing protocols can be configured.
- Only some aspects of the router configuration can be viewed.
18. Which type of access is secured on a Cisco router or switch with the enable secret command?
- virtual terminal
- privileged EXEC
- AUX port
- console line
19. What is the default SVI on a Cisco switch?
20. When a hostname is configured through the Cisco CLI, which three naming conventions are part of the guidelines? (Choose three.)
- the hostname should be fewer than 64 characters in length
- the hostname should be written in all lower case characters
- the hostname should contain no spaces
- the hostname should end with a special character
- the hostname should begin with a letter
21. What is the function of the shell in an OS?
- It interacts with the device hardware.
- It interfaces between the users and the kernel.
- It provides dedicated firewall services.
- It provides the intrusion protection services for the device.
