Yes, A docking station or a USB hub to connect peripheral devices is allowed.

Hi there,


Speakers are not a requirement for remote exams. The proctor will communicate with you via a chat applet within the exam environment.
However, a microphone is needed to transmit your audio to the proctors. If your internal mic also has problems, you can use a wired microphone/headset (via jack or USB) and leave it on the work table. (Your exam proctor will guide on the camera & mic placement).

Hi. Can i use a wired/bluetooth external microphone and speaker device during the exam? It's the Anker PowerConf device in particular.

The microphone and speaker volume on my laptop is rather soft even when put to maximum, thus would like to find out if i can use an external speaker and microphone. 

Thank you.

Hello,

While I am in the exam, Can I use information commands such as “man, ansible-doc, info ” during the exam?

If we can, could you explain whether using these commands have any effect on the score what we will get at the end of the exam or not?

 

Thanks.

Remzi

I don't think that using man/info/other docs was prohibited/restricted somehow on exams.

I'm doing it on all my exams and I had few 300/300s so there's no "penalty" on using manuals.

Moreover - they don't expect you to know all the switches, options etc. for each and every command/module. The beauty of practical exam is that you have to know how to configure the particular part of OS and NOT to memorize sequences of commands.

There's one "BUT" - you have to know where to find this information because searching for something you're not aware of is time consuming. So I'd recommend to get familiar with the docs and not memorize them.

The "power of admin" includes also an ability to find the information not only knowledge "how to use ls or reboot".

Ofcourse you can use and I believe there is no such impact on scoring by
checking the man page or help.

As you might already know, these are 100% practical exams and you are free
to refer to provided help/documentation (if any). The assessment is based
on the ability to solve the questions; even finding the correct solution
from a man page is a skill :)

Anyway, we will wait for the moderator to help :)

Hi @Remzi ,

I agree with @PiotrS  and @Gineesh . Your score will not be docked for using any available documentation. Knowing how to find particular information may also be a hidden objective of your exam :)

Your score is only based on the end results. If for example, you are told to set up a web service that answers on port 80 and sends out the text "Hello world!", we connect to port 80 and look at what comes back. If you were to write a service that listened on port 80 and responded with the text, or set up a web page would be up to you. We would just make sure that the end result is correct.

Best Regards,

Remzi
