Hi, I am re-taking an exam and i am wondering if I can just re-use the usb image I created for the first attempt?

I'm running a compatibility check and noticed that during the 'hardware compatibility' check screen the video looked normal and I was able to read my ID.  Then the next screen is 'streaming compatibility' where it asks you you verify your ID is readable.  On this screen both webcams (internal and external) had the video horizontally flipped.  However the ID was still in focus and legible.

Since the video appered forwards on the first screen I assume this has nothing to do with the webcam and is part of Red Hat's exam software but wanted to check if anyone else noticed this.  I would think the proctor can reverse the image or just read it backwards if necessary.

Hey everyone, I'm testing the resolution of my Dell 27" monitor. During my first exam attempt everything looed pretty small on the screen. So I just booted from USB and I'm in the Displays menu. The native resolution of my monitor is 2560x1440. This is the default resolution. In the drop-down list I see several available resolutions including 2048x1080 (4:3), 1920x1080i (16:9) and 1600x1200 (4:3) and smaller. Of course I want my resolution to be 16:9, thus I  tried to select 1920x1080i. And once I selected it, my display began to flicker, and everything  was pretty blurry because of flickering. Please tell me, why does it happen and why I don't see a regular 1920x1080 resolution in the list, but only 1920x1080i? PS: when I did my first exam attempt, I noticed that left, right and bottom portions of the screen were not even used. So I wonder which resolutiong you would suggest to me to make sure my monitor is fully utilized during the exam? Thanks in advance.

I think I found the issue with resolution. The default refresh rate was set to 29.97 Hz. When I switch to 60 Hz, it automatically changes resolution from 1920x1080i to 1920x1080. I think it's a bit weird that the default refresh rate is set to such a small value... PS: The problem is I have to figure out the right resolution Before the exam because they said I'll have to reboot the system if I need to change it during the exam. I guess I'll have to do the hardware check and room verification one more time if I reboot during the exam, and I'd like to avoid wasting time on such things... 

So now I'm trying to figure out if I need to keep 2560x1440 200% or set 1920x1080 60 Hz...

Hello. I hope this is the right place to ask this question. I want to take the RHCSA EX200K Individual exam for RHEL 8.2, but I cannot find the exam on the red hat website. When looking for the exam, only EX200K for RHEL 9 is availble. Is there a way I can take the exam for RHEL 8.2? I thought the RHCSA RHEL 8 will be deprecetaed in May 2023, not October 2022. So, I am not sure why I am unable to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Hello, Everyone.

I hope all is good with you, and I am very happy to be part of Red Hat Community !

If I want to certify as RHCSA-EX200, for prep I should take RH124, and RH134 only, or some additional courses ? I see the preparation' materials are for v.9, but the Exam is still for v. 8 ...

Thank you, and Best Regards,

Asen
