Free CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Question

A network technician receives a report that a particular server is experiencing intermittent connectivity issues. After checking the network configurations and ensuring no changes were recently made to the infrastructure, the technician suspects that the issue may be related to the physical layer. Upon physically inspecting the fiber patch panel, the technician notices that the connectors to the server are not securely in place and that there might be contamination. What should be the technician's next step to troubleshoot the connectivity issues of the server?

  • Replace the current optical cables with brand new ones to ensure there is no contamination.

  • Apply a small amount of isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) directly to the connectors to sterilize them.

  • Use a fiber optic cleaning kit to clean the connectors, then reseat them properly in the patch panel.

  • Reseat the connectors and check if the issue persists.
