    For this week's trivia question, let's try one related to configuration:

    Judging from this picture, if I am in the Branch and want to access Netflix, what will be the primary path I send my traffic out of?

    Hey everyone, so the answer I was looking for was:

    JustinDC-WAN1

    The Mist Cloud makes configuring your SSRs so much simpler than it is through Conductor. 

    All we have to do is:

    1. Set up an Application Policy where we define our Network (think of this as a Tenant) and what Applications (think Service) that Network has access to.
    2. Once that policy is set up, it will lead to a Traffic Steering Policy
    3. The Traffic Steering Policy tells us which interfaces to send the traffic out of. In this case it is JustinDC-WAN1 as our primary and JustinDC-WAN2 as our secondary.

    I hope that makes sense. Stay tuned for next Tuesday when I come up with another good one. Have a great weekend!
