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

I am using an HP Omen laptop. I could use a MacBook Pro, but I trusted more the HP for this because the Mac only has usb C ports and I would need a dongle to connect anything to it

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

Hello,

One question about the environment. I`ve red that laptop (with lid closed) with external monitor is allowed, I know that.

I`m wondering is it allowed to have an exam in the office (alone) with multiple monitors which are powered off and not on the same table where I`m sitting, but distanced ~2m on the left or right ?

Thanks.

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

Hi @igmarkovic ,

Ideally, there should be no additional monitors nearby, and if present, the proctor will ensure they are disconnected (and moved/covered) before the start of the exam.

If you are taking the exam from an open office, Are you able to prevent other people from entering? Please note that your exam will be suspended whenever someone enters and time will be lost while you guide the other person out. (See the FAQ - https://www.redhat.com/en/resources/certification-remote-exams-FAQ)

Also, the firewalls in many office networks may hinder connection to the RedHat servers. Please ensure you run the compatibility test well in advance if you plan to appear from the office.

Best Regards,

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

Seems, the latest ISO is not working !

 

https://learn.redhat.com/t5/General/Red-Hat-Remote-Exam-Latest-ISO-is-not-working/td-p/17039

Unfortunately, I have wiped my USB drive and also deleted old Exam ISO.

Any help ?

It seems that you must disable "SecureBoot" in your bios and try to boot again.

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

Is there any support available for running the Remote Exam Bootable Live USB on Mac?  I have tried booting on a 2015 iMac, a 2013 MacBook Air and a 2015 MacBook Pro.  All fail to boot from the USB with the error 36 Rebuild USB Drive (see screenshot attached).  I haved rebuilt the USB drive 3 times.

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

 

Hi @AndrewM ,

Apple devices are generally not a good match with the remote exam image (any linux image in fact).
In your case, a possible workaround is to use the older image - https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso

Personally, I have been able to fix this by tinkering with the bios. If you know your way around the bios settings, you may try to temporarily disable the SATA controller or change its mode in BIOS. (Note: Changing bios settings from their defaults can cause harm, only take this route if you are confident. Red Hat does not recommend altering the bios settings and this is only something which worked for me)
If this does not help, please use the older ISO or a different device.

You can also connect to a support agent by following the instructions in the exam confirmation email.

Best Regards,
