I have an exam tomorrow, I found that I didn’t have enough USB ports to connect everything I needed to my laptop. Can I use a docking station that connects to a computer with type-c and has 6 USB ports and hdmi for connecting a monitor?

Another question, can i use wired mouse with the lid open? Setup: external camera, mouse, laptop. Or if i want to use external mouse the lid should be close so i need the external keyboard and the monitor as well?

Hi @Michael1 ,

Yes, A docking station can be used for the remote exam as long as only the essential devices are connected.
If you are using an external monitor, you will be required to close the laptop lid down and use a wired external keyboard and mouse.

Hope that helps.

Is it possible to burn the image for exam (rhrexboot.iso) into a DVD instead of USB? My company (owning my PC) does not allow me to use USB.

Maybe is too big, I do not know the size so far.

Hi @Bernardo20 ,

We do not recommend booting from a DVD because CD/DVD media is much slower compared to USB devices and will take a long time to load the remote exam image and will have performance issues during the exam. Please arrange for a different computer on which you have full administrative rights.

I have signed up for the RHCSA remote exam(ex200V8K). But the proctor did not allow me to take the exam and said that he could not see my desktop, and the quality of the video camera was very bad. And then they told me to raise my ticket in order to reschedule the exam for another date. How I can do it? Please help and advice about this problem. In my exam scheduler this exam don't available.

Hi,

 

I have Red Hat Learning Subscription which is valid till 2020.11.22.

I've enroled for the EX200 exam and now it says that the expiration date for this enrollment is 2021.05.27. Does it mean that even though my learning subscription ends in november 2020 I can still try to pass the exam after this date?

Thank you for help,

Marek

Hi @BeMarek ,

Yes, that is correct.
The exam eligibilities usually expire along with the subscription but Red Hat has now extended the exam eligibilities by 180 days, so the exams can be scheduled after your learning subscription ends.

However, please note that access to the labs will be lost once the subscription ends and you will not be able to swap the exam eligibility to a different exam.
For specific questions around the extension, I would encourage you to contact the support team.

Best Regards,
