Hi,

I do have access to the internet locally.
The same wifi I use everyday. And I also confirmed the wired connection
worked fine with the laptop in Windows before booting from USB.

Cheers,

Hi @MollyC ,

The remote exam environment attempts to connect/ping to 'https://rhie-poa.redhat.com', to determine internet connectivity. This is the application interface where you are connected to the exam proctor.

The "Network does not appears to be configured" error is displayed when there is no response to the above URL.
Please check if your ISP or firewall has restrictions to access this URL.

Edit: It appears this system is offline for maintenance. Please try again in a few hours and it should connect to the compatibility test page.

Regards,

Thanks for looking into this.

Is  'https://rhie-poa.redhat.com' still offline for maintenance?

I tried the older USB image, network is fine but sound test fails in compatibility test. I rebooted several times to adjust the the volume of speaker and microphone, but can't get it work.

Hi @MollyC ,

It was only offline for a couple of hours on Sunday. Do you still have the same error?
Regarding the sounds, perhaps the sound card is not recognized by the remote exam OS. Can you try plugging in a wired headphone and give it a shot?

Hi,

how do I create/connect to the virtual machines in the exam? All this time I was practicing with VirtualBox on Windows since this is what was used in the course I was learning with.

There were no mentions about settign up VMs in the exam objectives (on the RedHat site)

Do I get different options of virtualization software to use during the exam? Or do I just get credentials to already set up VMs.

Testers are given the credentials to prebuilt VMs.

Hi Team,

 

Please let me know if I am allowed to use desktop instead laptop. If so, I would need to have 2 external cameras, one for the display and one for the desk? Please let me know. I read the specific Red Hat document towards remote exams and there is keyword like "computer" or "laptop". Want to be 100% sure that combination above will fit the requirements.

 

Best regards,

Patryk

If I am not mistaken, you are allowed to use any compatible workstation
(desktop/laptop).
Only one external camera is required and it should be able to cover you and
the workstation.

Anyway, wait for some moderators to confirm this :)

Hi,
I used desktop, wired keyboard, mouse and an external webcam and a chair to put the webcam on it far from the desk. Your face, hands and keyboard have to be visible.
Make sure that your webcam can read correctly words on you r ID, I mean words on your ID have to be readable.
Note: I cleared the exam(RHCSA)on January 5th, 2022. Remotely
I hope this helps!
Good luck
