  • Computer: You will need a computer with a single active monitor. Red Hat supports many Intel compatible X86_64-bit architecture computers.
  • USB: One USB Drive (2.0 or higher) with at least 8 GB capacity.
    NOTE: The entire disk will be overwritten, so make sure you have saved any contents you may have on the disk before following the procedure for creating the live exam environment.
  • USB Hub: One wired USB hub is allowed if a hub is needed to accommodate permitted peripheral devices as described below.
  • Hard Drive: A hard drive with free storage capacity of at least 4 GB (for Live USB creation only).
  • Mouse: A wired mouse is optional but recommended. A wireless mouse is not allowed. A wired mouse is required if you use a laptop in a closed and docked mode as described below.
  • Keyboard: Only one keyboard is allowed for the exam. If you wish to use an external, wired keyboard with your laptop, you will have to use the laptop closed and docked. This will require the use of an external monitor and wired mouse as well. Wireless keyboards are not permitted.
  • Webcam: One external webcam with at least a 1m cable _and_minimum_720p_resolution_.
  • Monitors: Only one physical display will be allowed for the exam.
  • Connecting an external monitor to a laptop: You are only allowed to use one monitor, one keyboard and one external mouse. If you chose to connect an external monitor to your laptop, the laptop lid must be closed throughout the duration of the exam session. You will be required to use a wired keyboard and a wired mouse.
  • Sound and Microphone: A working microphone is required. Verify that the audio and microphone are not set on mute prior to the exam.
  • Operating System: N/A.
  • Firewalls: Firewalls that allow normal web activities will typically work. More restrictive firewalls that limit outgoing access and that require additional authentication may cause problems. Most firewall issues will show up when you run the compatibility test.
  • RAM: Minimum 4GB of RAM are required.
  • Internet Connection Speed: Download speed requirements are 768Kbps and upload speed requirements are 512Kbps.
  • Network Connection: Unless it is physically not possible, a wired network connection should be used, not wireless, to ensure the most reliable delivery of your exam.
  • Laptop Battery: If using a laptop, please ensure that the built-in battery is fully charged just in case there is an interruption of power. Do not rely on the battery as the principal power source.
  • Power: We recommend the use of an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) for your computer, external monitor (if used) and networking equipment to maintain internet connectivity during power outages.
  • All desktop or tower computers used for remote exams must sit either on top of the desk being used or in a place that allows a full 360 degree scan of the computer.

Hey Team

Just wanted to understand if Macbook M1 editions are compatible with the test as they are Similar to ARM64 architecture instead of intel-compatible X86_64-bit architecture computers.

Hey, following our conversation this morning, i have tested old iso image on Macbook pro late 2013 model. I was able to bootup from the external flash drive but within the lab environment, it failed to detect the wifi signals, looks like the wifi driver/adapter was not in action to connect to a specific wifi signal. At the end, I have to postpone the exam.

such an crazy piece of TIHS is this iso from Redhat. After trying this THIS iso image on 3 diferent variants of Apple Macbook pros, finally decided to buy Microsoft Surface studio laptop (I have plans on it, but now for sake or exam, i have prioritized to buy it). 

Took 1 hour to figure it outto dsiable security sttingsot make the laopt boot from USB disc & at the env, it disabled all peripherals of laptop, no sound, no mic, no touch pad. Basically, it blocks to do any thing you want to. 

Understood from the training provider that only EX188 (on open shift track) is the exam conduted virtually & most of the others can be given at test center. 

 

What the Heck about this exam ? why not to standardize the exam format with viable technical options ???

I wonder, what would be the life of engineers who are working on the Redhat products..

Most exams can be done remotely. I don't know why your training provider would say that unless either certain exams can't be taken in specific countries or they are trying to get you to take your exam in their location.
