Cisco CCNA mock exam questions sample test – Question 358

.A switch is powered up, and the system LED is amber.
Which of the following describes this situation?

A. The switch is malfunctioning.
B. Utilization level is high.
C. The switch is performing normally.
D. There is a security violation on a switch port.

Correct Answer: A

Explanation:
The system LED indicates the overall health of the switch. The LED should turn solid green after a successful Power On Self Test (POST). An amber system LED indicates that there
is a system-wide failure in the switch.
High utilization will not cause the system LED to turn amber.
An amber system LED indicates a general switch malfunction. It does not indicate that the switch is performing normally.
Port security violations will not cause the system LED to be amber. The system LED is used to identify the overall health of the switch.
