Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi Arif!

It is recommended that you used a wired connection during the exam. As for the microphone, it is needed in order for the proctor to monitor the environment while you take the test.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

I just attempted an RHCSA remote exam but had to stop becuase of an "Internal Media Error".

The most frustrating part was that the pre-exam funtionality tests all passed!

also, I was on a wired connection, both my internal network and ISP speeds are 1Gb/s

1. How do i reschedule my exam? 

2. Is there any way to access a test exam environment to be sure i dont have the same problem again?

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hello. I had a similar issue with the lab environment which prevented me from taking the exam. I reached out to certification-team@redhat.com to explain and ask if the exam can be retaken.

I hope to receive a favorable response given it was a very unfortunate and frustrating situation.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

What day and time did you attempt the exam? Did you hear back from the cert team yet? 

My environment was so slow, i was playing the "catch up game" with the mouse (i'd move it, and have to wait a second to see where it ended up). I tried to push through, but i hadnt made much progress even after an hour. it was then i worked with the proctor to try and fix it. When we couldnt get it fixed, the proctor suggested i reschedule

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi @Loopholelou ,

Based on your description I did experience the same issue yesterday during an exam with EX403. It was on my rather old laptop, Dell E6430, and using the latest iso. I suspect something is going wrong with the graphic card and that might be using some sort of default display drivers that makes it "choppy".

I also feedback the above experience to the team, I suggested that if my theory is correct, then additional checks should be made to detect what sort of display drivers are used.

During the exam, the proctor allowed me to restart the computer entirely, so we agreed I will change laptops, after a few failed trials and errors (like reducing resolution). I used a more recent laptop and it worked properly.

I understand it's rather stressful and inconvenient, I hope the feedback we provide will improve that situation.

PS: I think using the older iso image might be a temporary workaround, I am not sure where it is available officially...It's the one with this sha256sum:

sha256sum rhrexboot.iso
eda73a25d7d9b5eb51273c1773ee08297d17fb4430200125f3432d2f31ab594f rhrexboot.iso

(I had an old copy in my download folder Smiley Happy)

Edit: support gave a link to the older iso in another thread (pay attention to the recommendations about using an older iso and testing):

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

I really think you're on to something here. I took my exam with an E6530. I was playing that "delayed mouse catch up" game. I ended up passing the exam, but i know i would have done better if there weren't such a delay.

Hi I have created the bootable USB and was able to boot my lenovo thinkpad with that. But it get stuck at envirotment loading step for long time. I can see at right corner 100% is marked but no movement after that even if waiting for more than 30 mins.

Hi @dimikhan ,

I have responded in your thread - https://learn.redhat.com/t5/General/Booting-the-exam-environment-stuck-after-showing-100/m-p/18178/h...

But yes, you may use the older image for your exam.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi @Deanna , during remote exam are we allowed to use single monitor which has 21:9 parameters? The Linux will be able to dispaly this to the edges? Thank You very much. Another question is, I have heard that during exams there is a huge delay, for Europe systems are US based and that is the reason? Thank You very much in advance.
