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.

Red Hat management decided long ago not to run the certification exams in the Internet Browsers (like many other companies did), but to use a customized Fedora Live USB system, probably in an effort to protect the Exam"s integrity.

Of course, this decision also brings challenges. You hardly find a Linux distribution booting on any computer ever made worldwide. If you do, let me know about it.

Buying a new computer for the exam is the worst thing you can do unless you consult with the vendor about its compatibility with Fedora 33 the exam ISO is based on and unless you test it before you buy. As you might know, every computer hardware needs drivers and modules. Unlike RedHat, the producers do not publish their computer specifications and architecture details in advance. RedHat is buying those new computers in order to test their compatibility. But anyone can join the RH community and participate in creating the drivers to make it compatible. Did you participate?

Some marginal hardware configurations, gaming computers, new technologies, or models are usually not supported or not supported fully. It is generally known building drivers and integrating them into any Linux distro may take up to 3 years. What is the chance the new Microsoft laptop/tablet with its outstanding features will be supported by several years old version of exam Fedora?

I do not think RH engineers are failing. Thousands of users were able to take the exam, many are taking the exam every day. They had or found a compatible computer to use. And those who did not can still take the exam from the classroom.

Because it is quite understandable, the exam system cannot run on everything, unfortunately.

I would like to add that any 'v' exam allows any exam taker to schedule on a training center, if that option is preferable to doing it with your own laptop. So takers should feel free to schedule an in-person exam if they feel their home/office setups do not adequately support the exam requirements.

I think you will not be able to do so, the RE system is modified not to run in the VM.

Hi All,

For the JBOSS Virtual exam, can I do it in a meeting room with a glass wall and door?

Thanks for the answer.

I had my answer by chat: "Glass wall should not be transparent completely".
