Here is another pop quiz for another Friday:
1. What is the 802.1d spanning-tree port role for every port on a root bridge?
2. Every switch running IEEE 802.1d spanning-tree protocol has a Bridge ID (BID). How is the BID derived?
A) The BID is the base MAC address.
B) The BID is created from a bridge priority value, optionally an extended system ID, and the switch's base MAC address.
C) It is a random number generated based on when the switch is powered on.
3. Select the correct steps that a port goes through when transitioning to forwarding when using IEEE 802.1d:
A) Forwarding, Blocking, Listening, Learning
B) Blocking, Forwarding, Listening, Learning
C) Blocking, Learning, Listening, Forwarding
D) Blocking, Listening, Learning, Forwarding
