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

We discussed with @tomcorcoran and it turns out the issue is using a recent MAC with the infamous T2 chip, indeed.

There's a list of hardware impacted on Apple website:

official Apple list of computer with T2 chip 

 

Anyway, bottom line, as indicated in the prep guide, Tom had to use another hardware without that T2 chip. He was also working things out with support to reschedule the exam at a later date!

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

Hi @Deanna ,

In Jan 2021, I created a remote exam bootable live USB. Is it still valid? I registered to take the exam on August 30, 2021.

I tried to compare the latest ISO from https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot.iso, with the one I downloaded in 1/2021.

❯ ll rhr*
-rw-r--r--@ 1 zji 1437522721 2.3G Aug 22 17:05 rhrexboot (1).iso
-rw-r--r--@ 1 zji 1437522721 2.3G Jan 8 2021 rhrexboot.iso

they have the same size, seems the same. But would like to check if I can use the I already have, so that I do not have to Create the disk image again.

Please confirm.

thanks

-Eric

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

Hi @EricJi ,

Do refer to the prep guide:

https://www.redhat.com/rhdc/managed-files/tr-remote-exams-preparation-ebook-f27382-202103-en_1.pdf 

There's several topics about the md5sum to check the size and integrity, ex:

 

How do I verify if I downloaded the remote exam live USB image
successfully?
The size of the rhrexboot.iso is about 2.3 GB. The MD5 checksum is
0dd72ac558fc1afbf0c0e1fa4b366f10.

 

Cheers,

PS: It's best to ask those kind of questions to the live support, see end of page 1 in the prep guide, there's a button to contact them.

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

I am using Macbook Pro 2016 model and i'm able to boot exam image via a USB drive however after booting, its not detecting my WiFi, no output received for sound and mic test. My exam is scheduled for tomorrow and cannot reschedule it as its less than 24 hrs. Unfortunately, i can neither purchase an ethernet to USB C converter in this short period of time for wired Internet nor do i have another laptop to load the image for the exam. Please let me know what can be done in such situation.

My exam expiry date is 28th Aug, hopefully, it can be rescheduled from backend?
P.S. i had tested a month ago the image, at that time, my Wifi was detected however it didnt let me connect, for some reason, later, i found out my Wifi connection was not proper and it had to be fixed by the ISP.

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

Do they deliver the Remote Exam on weekends, and regardless, can it be done after midnight EST .
My country is well known for its internet and power outages during the day, so, with Pearson I take them after midnight (on weekdays though)

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

Hi, I'm trying to boot the ISO from my mac but I'm getting and error "ERROR 36: REBUILD USB DRIVE".

I'm using Macbook Pro 2013 (I've also tried on Macbook Pro 2020) with Big Sure.

Is there any other ISO i could try?

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

You can use BalenaEtcher to create the LiveUSB from the rhrexboot.iso provided by the "Getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam" PDF

it worked like a charm for the compatibility tests.

 

By the way, I used an Asus Laptop  instead, had issues with MacBook Pro 2017 Audio/Mic drivers.

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

I've done exactly that. 

Used BalenaEtcher but still not booting on macOS Big Sure.
