I just want to clarify, I ordered a remote exam and was going to do it from Ireland, apparently I will be in a different country that day.
Does it matter which location I connect from?
Hi @diesello ,
Where you connect from does not impact the functioning of a remote exam as long as your internet connectivity is good.
While scheduling the exam, you should see this dialog box asking for country and location information.
You may choose 'Ireland' as the ID issuing country (This should match with the country, where the purchase was made) and then choose the country/time zone of the actual exam location in the section to the right. This will ensure your exam VMs are provisioned in the nearest data center.
Thanks for clarification. If I would like to update the country of the actuall exam, would that require complete rescheduling?
To be honest cannot move the date as my RHCE is ending soon and the exam (assuming I will pass) will extend the validity.
I guess it is safe to continue with the current booking. There is no big difference (in the terms of loction), between Ireland and Poland.
I did that but I will be in different, than initially planned, country.
Hence my question.
I have uploaded my "Japan residence card" as "GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PHOTO ID". The validity period of the card for the Japanese government has expired before I was able to take the exam. Can please someone remove the uploaded and approved residence card image, so I can upload a new one?
I'm stuck trying to get the exam environment working. I boot it up, exit the configuration screen, click OK about connecting to RedHat and checking me in, and then I sit on a black screen with a mouse pointer. I've tried manually configuring my proxy settings but see no attempt to even talk to it. My network doesn't allow external access without explicit firewall rules or using the proxy, but I also get no error messages. And since this is a locked down image, I can't do any of the normal diagnostics I would otherwise do. I'm really hoping to schedule my first exam for next week, but until I get the environment tested there's no point in even scheduling...
The black screen issue occurs when the ISO is unable to connect to the server. Unfortunately, the current version of the image does not report such errors and such error reporting should be fixed in the coming version.
Please try to boot into the image again after adding "https://rhie-poa.redhat.com/*" to the allow list. If you still have problems, please try to reach the support team using the chat option in the exam confirmation email.
If all fails, I'm afraid you will have to try to connect to the exam on a network without firewall restrictions.
