Agreed. I had the EXACT same issue and had to reschedule. My DSL connection is too slow. My celluar LTE connection is fast enough but latency might be an issue depending on the distance of the server I have to connect to for the exam. Seems like a no-win situation for those who need to test remotely.
Hopefully someone from the Red Hat team will see your post @Hina and offer a better solution.
Dear Red Hat team,
After rescheduling my exams a couple of times( a little more), getting my certification slot cancelled, still awaiting a response on the new voucher - I have a few suggestions :
1. Red Hat exams from home are not that efficient. Atleast we can see numerous network issues coming up. Can we have an environment directly available on a webpage. Killer.sh is an excellent example of how that is possible and easily accessible.
2. Open Red Hat testing centers. Things are now coming to normal, No one would mind going to a well sanitized center with due care. Please think over.
3. Also, a tie up with other certification centers can explore the training centers in cities where Red Hat center is not present. Pearson venues are one such example.
Would be great if these can be under your consideration. It will make our life easier and ofcourse! yours too
When I attempt to boot from the USB drive containing the Red Hat ISO I am getting "Error 36: REBUILD USB DRIVE". I have attempted with several different USB drives, but I am getting the same error. I have my laptop (HP Envy 2020) set up to boot from a USB drive, so I am not certain what the error means? Can anyone assist with this? I am scheduled to take my exam the day after tomorrow. Thanks.
Check your bios, if you have secure boot enabled, that could be the issue. However, if you disable it, you'll want to re-enable before trying to boot your normal OS...and with this setting, YMMV on rebooting your OS from what I hear.
I had to go through 6 laptops before I found one that would boot and pass compatibility tests (4 of the failed 5 laptops fail compatibility tests because of microphone disabled - same external camera too.)
I'm having trouble with the integrated microphone of my laptop. While I could tweak it using alsamixer in my OS that is not possible when I've booted into the Red Hat Exam Environment. My microphone has way to low volume there.
As I understand from the FAQ headsets are not allowed during remote exams.
Could someone recommend an USB-micorphone that is known to work with the Red Hat Remote Exam Environment?
Thanks in advance.
Hi @JoergK ,
You may use a basic wired headset if there are no other alternatives for input mic. The headset will have to be placed on the work table and your proctor will guide on its placement.
I am totaly confused. For the exam bootable USB is must and boot the system through the USB?
My laptop is ahving camera and that is enough?
Thanks and Regards,
Hello @ManojKaliatnil ,
I am totaly confused.
Have you read through the Remote exam ebook? The ebook guide should explain the remote exam requirements. If you still have questions, this video, should provide a fair idea.
To answer your question, yes, the exam is accessed using a bootable USB and an external camera is a mandatory requirement.
Please use the links provided above and let me know if you still have questions.
I am trying to Boot to the remote exam live USB image in MAC Big Sur but while proeeding further after selecting your EFI boot device as USB flash drive getting error as "the version of the macOS on the selected disk needs to be reinstalled. Use recovery to reinstall macOS or select another startup disk. Please refer attach error screenshot for same.
Can anyone help how to proceed further here?
