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

I already have a router connected to my home network which is slow. The LTE network is through my cell phone which I will have to use as a hotspot so I'm not sure purchasing another router will help in this case.

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

Router is not standart router. Router is a LTE router.

Using cell phone is not good solution for mission critical.

However LTE router can be use for exam.

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

I understand it's not a standard router but aside from my phone, I do not have an LTE network to connect an LTE router to. My ISP offers DSL, so the only thing I would be able to connect an LTE router to would be my cell phone which actually has the LTE service on it. And if I have to connect my cell phone to an LTE router, I might as well use a cable to connect my cell phone directly to my laptop.

Please correct me if I am misunderstanding your suggestion.

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

There is a misunderstanding. You can insert a sim card into the router and use it. Could you look at manual

lte router should be stay in an open area (windows site,balcony or outside). DSL connection is a more stable method.

Ah, I understand now. I'll have to look that option as well. Thank you for the suggestion.

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

error.jpg

I had exam on Sept 24th, 10 PM IST.
I was not able to login to the exam at that time. 
I was ablt to boot the laptop using USB but login prompt did not come.
I tried with couple of laptops, 3 LAN cables and 2 USB sticks. I even tried with backup connection. None of them worked. Attaching the error in screenshot.
Next day, when I tried with same setup it worked and gave me login prompt. 
I have used same setup for exams before and it had worked. 
I have raised a ticket with them on the same day but  have not received any reply. 

I no longer see the exam in schedular. Will I get my attempt back?
What else can I do? Do not want to miss on attemt for no fault of my own.

I expected that RedHat exam team will atleast call me when i did not login at exam time. may be I could have told them my issue but disaapoinment on that front Smiley Sad

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

Hi @Sarang ,

Unfortunately, there was an unexpected outage during your exam slot which caused that error. I believe the proctors/support reached out to the candidates to explain the problem but I'll apologize if you did not receive any message. I have let the team know and you should expect a response on your ticket soon.

Regards,

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

Suggestion to the Red Hat Team.....

As part of Compatibility test, we should provide a sample test environment too...where we can check that the Red Hat execution environment works upto the required speed with our home network.

My personal experience is that even though my compatibility tests had passed, but when I began the certification exam..the environment was not accessible.  The proctor had to confirm that and the exam was rescheduled. That causes a lot of trouble.

 

A sample test environment will be helpful to ensure things will be all good on the certifcation day.

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

@Hina Nice suggestion. Hope this  goes through.
Most of us are only able to test BW (using speedtest.net) but not latency and that causes trouble once the exam starts.
