EX294 Exam versions

Hi,

currently there are three different versions available when registering for the Exam:

  • Red Hat Certified Engineer V8
  • Red Hat Certified Engineer V8.4
  • Red Hat Certified Engineer V9

What are the exact differences of these Exam versions ?

They seem to be based on RHEL 8, RHEL 8.4 and RHEL9 respectively, but what other differences are to be expected ? Is the Ansible version used in the three Exam versions also different ?

The official Exam objectives do not mention anything about the different Exam versions:

https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training/ex294-red-hat-certified-engineer-rhce-exam-red-hat-enter...

So does that mean the objectives are identical no matter which Exam Version I choose ?

@melnajim  I think that @Fran_Garcia meant to say that the content in the RHCE for RHEL 7 (Red Hat System Administration III / RH254), on network services included in RHEL, was mostly moved to RH358 (Red Hat Services Management and Automation).  That course is currently based on RHEL 8.

The biggest difference with that course is that each chapter ends with a section on how to use Ansible to automate manual sysadmin tasks from the chapter.  But its main focus is on the various network services, much like the old RH254 course.  So if you're looking for that, it's still available and it has an associated certification exam, EX358.

Nevermind, passed the exam. Nothing was surprising for me, as long as you practiced each topic you should be fine.

what about collections?

You should definitely know how to use collections when working with ansible.

After all, a collection is basically just a directory with roles inside.

I was thinking the same when ansible started with collections.

But actually they are quite easy! All you need to do is using the ansible-galaxy command:

ansible-galaxy collection init my_namespace.my_collection

 Thsi will create a ready to use collection. Inside the collection directrory just put in the roles.

It is perfectly suited for grouping roles beloning to the same topic. i.ex. I have a mysql collection, with the roles mysql_server and mysql_client inside.

Hi, concerning the updates, can anyone eliborate on this session of the exam:

  • Use Automation content navigator to create inventories and configure the Ansible environment

Will I be ask to build my own execution environment or to use remote automation hub as execution environment ?
