Yes you definitely need an external webcam. You will not be allowed to take the exam without it. You should contact training support and ask them if you can reschedule.

The link for downloading ISO image on Mac seems to be broken.

https://rhdc-static-assets-prod.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboo...

I downloaded the image which probably is same for other listed OS.

Please fix this.

Hello

I have created my bootable USB key for attempting a remote exam but I can't boot into the Red Hat Remote Exam Environment. It is stuck at 100% for 30+ minutes

Picture of the stuck boot : https://i.imgur.com/OWnstul.jpg

I am encoutering this problem on my ThinkPad T470s, but the same USB key successfully boot into the exam environment on a HP Elitebook (however I can't use that one for the exam).

I've also tried to boot this live USB on another ThinkPad T470 but the same exact problem occurs.

What should I do ? Did someone already encounter this ?

Thank you for your help

Hi, I have similar problem, but in my case on Asus ultrabook and it eventually loads after 10-15 mins hanging. I also tried diffrent hardware and this hang is the best I can get. Would like to hear a recomendations/solution as well.

I have tried several times booting the environment on my ThinkPad but I couldn't have it to boot even once

Very strange behavior. I don't know if we can get in touch directly with Red Hat for technical problems like those

How much memory do you have on the laptops you tested on?

Hi @dunay ,

I tested on two Thinkpad T470s and experienced the same problems as you described. However, it worked as expected on Thinkpad T480s. (I couldn't find any other ThinkPad devices to test) Looking at this, I suspect that this particular model has compatibility issues with the remote exam image. I have alerted the dev team to investigate further.

For now, please try to use the older image located here - https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso, I was able to live boot into this version of the remote exam image.

Regards,
