I failed my CCNA by 10 points yesterday and am going to take it again next Monday (before this exam expires). There was one particular question on the test that is driving me nuts and I can't seem to find the answer, if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. The question was a multi-question multiple choice scenario with simulated CLI. I had console access to 1 switch of about6 on a switched network (with a couple of routers thrown in for good measure) So from this one switch, I needed to execute dubug or sho commands to provide the answers to the questions. The one that hung me up was "which switch is the root bridge?" To the best of my recollection, I only had host names for the switches to identify them. I know I can find the MAC of the root by doing a "show spanning-tree" - but how can I identify the host name by MAC or the root bridge by name? Anyone? Thanks!
