Failed RHCSA twice: it seems configuration not saved

I have been practicing redhat Linux in my virtual machine quite a lot and I am quite confident.

I felt really really bad to fail the exam twice.

It seems my node2 work was never saved in the previous exam and in this exam. 
Actually I have booted the node 2 twice and I definitely saw the storage related configuration was there. But I lost all the scores for this area. Last time, I got the reply that " one of your system did not reboot to a usable state and could not be graded"

I do not know what happened. It must be a very small, but extremely critical point I have missed. This never happen in my local virtual machine environment.

Can anybody help and give your hint?

Many thanks!

In my experience it is always wise to try rebooting all of the systems in
the lab environment before completion to be sure that they do boot
correctly. I have taken the RHCSA/RHCE multiple times since RHEL4 and
troubleshooting an unbootable system has been one of the unstated
challenges more than once. Also good to ensure that any service we enabled,
throughout any of the exams I have taken, comes up after a reboot.

I agree with what @cmattern wrote , but let me add that in my case I've tried
to reboot both nodes to verify persistence of my modifications, but still due to
some bug some score was not calculated, so if during the exam you have
rebooted the node, and you're 100% sure that it was working keep asking the
support to review your case, that's how mine has been reviewed.

Hope this helps
