I have scheduled my RedHat exam remotely but unfortunately don't have any webcam and free USB drive. Due to lockdown for COVID there is restriction to go to the exam centre.
My laptop has an built in camera. Will this sufficient for a remote exam ?
As it was stated by @Gineesh, you need a second camera as the proctor needs to have a wider view of your environment.
And exam requires that you boot from a USB drive to access the exam, so you do need to have a free USB slot as well USB drive with the installed exam OS. Until then, I would recommend you postpone your exam if you don't get either item.
Hi @Rima ,
I see other answered, unfortunately without quoting the official information:
You should consult the official document:
Extract: "Webcam: One external webcam with at least a 1m cable."
Borrow one to someone you know if you can...
If you choose to buy a webcam, one of the learner, @PiotrS made a topic with hardware recommendations: RedHat-Remote-Exam-supported-hardware-cameras-mice-keyboards
That should help you also,
I am using a laptop with external monitor. In this set up I am asked to use a wired keyboard and a wired mouse and keep the laptop lid closed. I also have a external webcam. But since my laptop lid is closed what about the 2 camera requirement.
Hi @chrishemb ,
If you read just 1 post above yours, there's a link to official document and information that there's only 1 external webcam required.
I am not sure why you are saying that there is a "2 camera requirement", that is not currently accurate.
Hope that clarifies,
PS: your setup appears to be ok, wired keyboard, wired mouse, laptop lid closed, external monitor, external webcam. That's also how I attend Remote Exams.
I'm getting an "Error 36: Rebuild USB Drive" on my Mac.
I've seen that some other user were able to make it work with an older ISO version. Where can I download the previous ISO, which is also allowed for the exam?
I uses MacBook Pro. I run a Compatibility Test in the Remote Exam Live Environment ISO image. But my Mac keyboard doesn't work. Mouse works. I can proceed settings page, but could not red hat account login because key board does not work.
Could you give me any advice?
