Thank you for your answer.

I just checked and no new e-mail received.

I get total 2 e-mails:
1st - about creation of order
2nd - about received payment for order.

My friend also boughtt online exam and his 2nd email there was link in email which enables him to schedule( I mentioned it in above mesage), I have that link to in my 2nd email but when I click it, it shows me just a details or order.

***EDITED***

 

I got that e-mail, thanks!

HI, I am Piyush. I am going to take remote exam next week.

I have wireless keyboard and wireless mouse connected with bluetooth dongle which passed the compatibility test.

Do these wireless keyboard and wireless mouse along with bluetooth USB dongle are allowed in the exam ?

Morever, I have internal and an external USB web camera, but I am wondering if I close the lid of laptop when I connect external monitor, Will proctor allow to use only one web camera (externally connected with laptop) because laptop lid will be closed during the exam and will have to use only one camera.

Thanks much for in advance for your prompt reply. Appreciate this community very much.

I'm pretty sure that wireless mouse is not allowed during exam - I have Logitech mouse and it passed compatibility test. I had to replace mine with mouse with USB cable to be compliant with exam requirements. As for camera - I have only one external camera and it was allowed on exam. But you should be prepared for few room "scans" so camera cable longer than 1m is preferred.

Thanks much for your answer.  IF mouse wasn't allowed, I guess, I will have to drop the keyboard plan as well.

Hi @alpha_piyush 

Yes, wireless keyboard is out:

Keyboard: Only one keyboard is allowed for the exam. If you wish to use an external, wired keyboard with your laptop, you will have to keep the lid closed. This will require the use of an external monitor and wired mouse as well. Wireless keyboards are not permitted.

Hi,

The compatibility test is there to test some of the hardware and help candidates reassuring them their setup is going to be ok. "Passing" it does not means your setup is fully approved.

What is important is following the official requirements, see:

https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... 

Mouse: A wired mouse is optional but recommended. A wireless mouse is not allowed. A wired mouse is required if you use a laptop with the lid closed as described below

You will not be allowed to proceed with the exam with that setup...

Remember there is a proctor also, watching and monitoring the candidates during the exams...

 

As for the webcam, " Webcam: One external webcam with at least a 1m cable.".

That means yes, you are ok with only your external webcam (and the laptop lid closed).

 

Good luck with the exam!

Hello,

Not yet. This is being piloted internally at the moment. Please watch the Ways to Test page for new releases. The EX200 listed there is based on RHEL 8.

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

Hi @limaunion 

It is available to take remotely since a few days now:

 

https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training/ex200-red-hat-certified-system-administrator-rhcsa-exam 

 

With the list of currently 7+1 Red Hat Certification Exams remotely (the +1 means for me that EX200 is actually available for RHEL8 and RHEL7):

Cheers,
