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

Hi Aldo,

This exact same issue was reported for the ThinkPad T470 model here .
(I recall someone reporting the same issue for the ThinkPad T50 earlier but can't find the link now now.)
We have reported this to the devs but I don't have any fix yet.
If you want to test using the same device, the only workaround I know is to use the older version of the ISO - https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso (See this)

Regards,

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

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 ?

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

I don’t think so. The primary requirement for this exam is an external
camera with 1 meter length atleast. The proctor should be able to see you,
your keyboard/laptop. It won’t work with an integrated webcam. Did you try
the compatibility check, it won’t pass I guess.

Personal note: Try to order a webcam from Amazon or other quick delivery
services or reschedule exam until you get the items.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat 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.

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

Hi @Rima ,

I see other answered, unfortunately without quoting the official information:

You should consult the official document:

Remote Exams Preparation Ebook 

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,

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

Hi,

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.

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

There is no 2 camera requirements as per my knowledge. You should have an
external camera by which proctor can see you and the keyboard/systems !

So if you are using an external monitor yes laptop lid need to close.
(Proctor will ask you to do so before starting exam

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

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.

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

Hi -
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?

Thank you
