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


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.

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

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

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

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 :)

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

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

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

Hi,

Thank You very much! So using the desktop You were using only single camera? I was confused because using laptop two cameras were needed;). Please confirm that You were using one camera.

 

"Your face, hands and keyboard have to be visible." it is quite hard to manage it with one camera I think hmm...

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

Hello @PatrykBe777 ,

I used one camera(Logitech: HD1080p. it has a clear resolution), connected to my desktop.

But, make sure the camera's wire is long enough for your hands, face and keyboard to be seen by the proctor.

I hope that helps!

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

@Gineesh is right.
You may use any compatible workstation along with one wired external camera.
Please see additional information here

Ultrawide monitors are acceptable but at higher resolutions, you may see only a part of the VM (or a very small view of the VM). I recommend setting the resolution to Full HD while taking the exam.

Also, there is the factor, that this is a remote display, the higher the resolution, the better bandwidth you should have, correct?

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

There is some limit for display resolution i believe.

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

*Adjust display resolution. If the default resolution of your screen is
higher than 1920*1080, we recommend adjusting it to 1920*1080 for better
screen readability inside the exam environment. Leave the settings as is if
the default screen resolution is less than 1920*1080.*
