Is there any problem if the operating system of the computer is Windows 11?

It doesn't matter, because you will be booting into a Linux environment using the Red Hat exam environment. The exam environment will leave your Windows 11 alone and you will be able to get back to it when you are done with the exam.

Could someone recommend additional set or real life scenario excercises that I could use to practice additinoally to what RedHat offers in the DO180 course?

I mean - if it is possible to get a deployment of podman on Centos in a cloud like Azure, where I could go practice real-life scenarios in some sort of a VM 

 

Thanks,

Bart

I used wsl2 (Linux in Windows) and podman.

For openshift you can try CodeReady Containers

Yes, as @MarkosS suggested, use Red Hat OpenShift CodeReady Containers.

See how you can install it on Linux or macOS:

I tried to take the RHCSA today, and took it with the remote option, from home. I had a very hard time interacting with the test. First, the current test .iso did not load for me. I had to use an older version. The system checks went fine, but when I logged in to take the test, the machine would not boot. Tech support showed me how to do it, but then I could't even enter any text to login! After half an hour, I had to give up. So knowing myself, I admit part of the problem is probably me. I just didn't understand how to interact with the test. I couldn't even begin the test, after many many hours of preparation. So my question is this: Is there a practice test where you can get familiar with the test environment? And, is the test environment / system any different if I take the test at a test facility?

Because of the nature of the exam method, it is highly recommended to test
your workstation and exam environment even before you book the exam !!!

You just need a Red hat login (the one you are planning to use for the
exam) and ISO to test the exam environment. If you are able to boot, login
with your Red Hat login, and are able to do compatibility test, then the
exam will go smoothly. (experience from multiple exams !)

I have documented the steps and details here if you want to check it out.

I think security blocking of USB on your end it on Windows level, not BIOS.

If so, then Exam Boot ISO as you boot from it and the Windows security will not applied as you will not boot using Windows, you will be booting from Live ISO as a Fedora OS.

I had to do a few BIOS changes in order to boot from usb: 

1) Secure boot OFF

2) Enable Legacy boot rom

3) Disable PPT boot

Of course this may differ depending on the specific laptop, but there should be similar options
