Default equipment/ios on the test... and switchport admin mode...

I'm studying for the CCNP switch test.

Jeremy is telling me that "dynamic desirable" was the default administrative mode on switchports. I've verified this on 2950/3550's that this is true.

However, on the 3560's in my lab, this is NOT true and it threw me for a loop for a bit. The default is "dynamic auto".

He also stated that if you disable negotiation that you have to do it on both sides. However, if I have one with nonegotiate and the other as dynamic desirable, it shows me trunking on both sides.

Then again, if I set both to trunk mode with nonegotiate but with different encapsulations, they both show up with with different encapsulations. How can this be? When I set to trunk mode with nonegotiate, is it always considered "up" but not working?

What can we expect as far as standard equipment/IOS on the test?

Thanks again for your time in replying. :D
