Ladies, Guys and all other respectable persons,


Yes want to let you now, I got my CCIE SAN.

Happy, outrageous and I want to thank all who assisted me on my long journey.  I guess I'm the 4th SAN CCIE guy in the Netherlands (Marvelous Rick - got to contact him - and Cisco delivers the other three in NL) . Difficult yes, asyou need a lot of hands-on which require (very expensive) equipement access. Studied almost 1250 hours.


Later one I will share some approaches.

One thing for sure, SAN is hard, tough but my 4th time (04apr11@ Brussels) finally paid off.

Now it's time to pick the pieces of the remaining social life. Excited , absolutely. !!!!


Special thank to Roman @ iementor for his material and Brian who assisted me on this forum with some positive input.

Last but not least, Antonella, keep on doing the job.



Kind Regards, with honours. !!!!!!


Peter Ooms and.... his number (CCIE#28567)......

    amazing story, great work and very inspirational.  The CCIE is serious business!  I can't agree with you more about the "switchport allowed vsan" commands, I learned the hard way and had to lookup all my VSAN's for a trunk, then go back and re-check every other trunk to make sure I didn't do this!  Costs way too much time, you can't make mistakes you may not have time to go back and re-check.


    Hardest thing about the lab is time.  I am a very fast typer, I know MDS inside out, but to get through the tasks you must be an expert, no question.
