A network technician is attempting to add an older workstation to a Cisco switched LAN. The technician has manually configured the workstation to full-duplex mode in order to enhance the network performance of the workstation. However, when the device is attached to the network, performance degrades and excess collision are detected. What is the cause of this problem?

The host is configured in a different subnet from the subnet of the switch.

There is a duplex mismatch between the workstation and switch port.

The switch port is running at a different speed from the speed of the workstation NIC.

The host has been configured with a default gateway that is different from that of the switch.

What is the correct command sequence to configure a router host name to "LAB_A"?

Router> enable
Router# configure terminal
Router(config)# hostname LAB_A

Router> enable
Router# hostname LAB_A

Router> enable
Router# configure router
Router(config)# hostname LAB_A

Router> enable
Router(config)# host name LAB_A

Refer to the exhibit. A company always uses the last valid IP address in a subnetwork as the IP address of the router LAN interface. A network administrator is using a laptop to configure switch X with a default gateway. Assuming that the switch IP address is, what command will the administrator use to assign a default gateway to the switch?

X(config)# ip default-gateway

In what two ways does SDM differ from the IOS CLI? (Choose two.)

SDM is used for in-band management only. The IOS CLI can be used for in-band and out-of-band management.

SDM is accessed through a Telnet application. The IOS CLI is accessed through a web browser.

SDM is available for all router platforms. The IOS CLI is available for a limited number of Cisco devices.

SDM utilizes GUI buttons and text boxes. The IOS CLI requires the use of text-based commands.

SDM is used for advanced configuration tasks. The IOS CLI is preferred for initial basic device configuration.

host name

domain name

DHCP address pool

DNS server IP address

What three settings can be made in the SDM Express basic configuration screen? (Choose three.)

host name
