I keep getting logged out of itpro.tv and it's a bit cumbersome to have to keep logging in. This has been an issue for a while--any status on getting this fixed?

@Andrew-Gaskell,

This question is ambiguous and misdirection is key here. He says he's can see it but discusses the error when sending the email. so terrible question, that was my point.

Where to start training for CCNA

@Jerryl-Nicolas,

First you want to do a search for Cisco Exam 200-301. Find the objectives and download them. Print them out.

Mark each topic from 1 to 5 - 1=not familiar, 5=I could discuss this topic intelligently and confidently.

Create a study plan for 1 1/2 hrs per day. Divide that into 3 sections: Two, 15 minutes for topics you've marked as 5 and 1 hr topic you've marked with 1-4. You will take 15 minutes 1st, review a 5 topic. 1hr to study a 1-4 topic, and end with 15 minutes to review another 5 topic. Do this daily, do not skip a day.

You can study using ITProTV content,web searches,blogs and books (which you will have to purchase. You can post questions here in the forum to get help from myself or other ITProTV members.

If you're rusty, I recommend you find in the course section, Legacy, look for CCENT (2018). This is a full 38 hr review of all networking fundamental before you take the CCNA. If you look at the topics and feel good, then head over to Cisco and begin studying with CCNA 200-301 series.

The study progress depends on what you would do as a individual. I gave you the way I would setup a study plan above. this way, each study session always begins and ends with a "win". Gives you. plenty of time to study harder topics. There is no magical path formula through the course. I recorded them in the order I thought was a correct way to tackle the content, assuming you had the prerequisite knowledge.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

hardware

@Dan-Kutka,

There are probably many people have stayed on the macOS for reasons like software wouldn't run on the newer version like Big Sur or even Catalina. But in your case, hardware is more difficult. With software, there's always a chance that a vendor may change code to support the newer version.

Some hardware vendors will figure out how to make it work but others will have to wait on collaboration with Apple to do so (e.g. 3rd docking stations that use display link software). I think I stayed on Yosemite a good while, finally just gave up on the docking station.

The big issue with staying with the current macOS is security bugs that will no longer be updated after the EOL. After a while, the next update will always be the next OS.

While you can probably remain functionally problem free, I would say that upgrading is something to consider especially because of security patches.

Why are the notes for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect (SAA-C02) empty?
A

@Austin-Harisch The standard for notes is the objectives and a high-level overview of the episode. The Subject Matter Expert has the discretion to include additional detail and resources. Thank you for alerting us to the empty notes - like you sampled in the "Latency, Failover and Geolocation" episode! We will work to resolve that oversight in future iterations.
In the meanwhile, visit the AWS Certified Solution Architect information page - here you can download objectives, study guides and sample test to enrich your studies.

Thoughts regarding Azure Key Vault

@Bob-Sellers,

This one slipped by me... So my apologies.

Azure Key Vault can be used in place of LastPass. The question is would you? Like you said, it's pretty much a steriod pumped up manager. On a daily basis, most users use it really to just enter passwords into web app front-end. The advantage is probably not for the end user then.
