DNA Center Questions

January 27th, 2021 in ENCOR 350-401 Go to comments

Question 1

Question 2


A complete Cisco DNA Center upgrade includes “System Update” and “Appplication Updates”


Question 3


Cisco DNA Center provides an interactive editor called Template Editor to author CLI templates. Template Editor is a centralized CLI management tool to help design a set of device configurations that you need to build devices in a branch. When you have a site, office, or branch that uses a similar set of devices and configurations, you can use Template Editor to build generic configurations and apply the configurations to one or more devices in the branch.

Question 4


When you click Deploy, Cisco DNA Center requests the Cisco Identity Services Engine (Cisco ISE) to send notifications about the policy changes to the network devices.

Question 5


The Cisco DNA Center open platform for intent-based networking provides 360-degree extensibility across multiple components, including:
+ Intent-based APIs leverage the controller to enable business and IT applications to deliver intent to the network and to reap network analytics and insights for IT and business innovation. These enable APIs that allow Cisco DNA Center to receive input from a variety of sources, both internal to IT and from line-of-business applications, related to application policy, provisioning, software image management, and assurance.

Question 6


You can create a network hierarchy that represents your network’s geographical locations. Your network hierarchy can contain sites, which in turn contain buildings and areas. You can create site and building IDs to easily identify where to apply design settings or configurations later.

Question 7

Question 8


The Intent API is a Northbound REST API that exposes specific capabilities of the Cisco DNA Center platform.
The Intent API provides policy-based abstraction of business intent, allowing focus on an outcome rather than struggling with individual mechanisms steps.

Question 9


Cisco DNA Center allows customers to manage their non-Cisco devices through the use of a Software Development Kit (SDK) that can be used to create Device Packages for third-party devices.

Question 10


Features of the Cisco DNA Assurance solution includes Device 360 and client 360, which provides a detailed view of the performance of any device or client over time and from any application context. Provides very granular troubleshooting in seconds.

    I think the answer should be C as it is not mandatory for ip-based groups to have ISE for group creation and the site option is used when you create the ip-based policy to denote where the policy will be applied (to wired or wireless devices in the site)!

    The note you have mentioned applies for group-based polices from the link you have provided! Please confirm!!

    Which devices does Cisco DNA Center configure when deploying an IP-based access control policy?
    A. All devices integrating with ISE
    B. selected individual devices
    C. all devices in selected sites
    D. all wired devices

    Q.10 Cisco DNA Center has obtained the username of the client and the multiple devices that the client is using on the network. How is Cisco DNA Center getting these context details?

    A. Those details are provided to Cisco DNA Center by the Identity Services Engine
    B. The administrator had to assign the username to the IP address manually in the user database tool on Cisco DNA Center
    C. User entered those details in the Assurance app available on iOS and Android devices
    D. Cisco DNA Center pulled those details directly from the edge node where the user connected

    Answer D is confusing with A

    The answer for question 10 is definitely wrong. It’s not D. The right one is A.

    Should be A????

    If your network uses Cisco Identity Services Engine for user authentication, you can configure Assurance for Cisco ISE integration. This enables you to see more information about wired clients, such as the username and operating system, in Assurance.

    Q10, agree correct answer is A. Those user information is provided by ISE, if customer integrated ISE for AAA authentication function for their network.
