Hi @Deanna , during remote exam are we allowed to use single monitor which has 21:9 parameters? The Linux will be able to dispaly this to the edges? Thank You very much. Another question is, I have heard that during exams there is a huge delay, for Europe systems are US based and that is the reason? Thank You very much in advance.

@PatrykBe777 ,

Hi there,

during remote exam are we allowed to use single monitor which has 21:9 parameters? The Linux will be able to dispaly this to the edges? 


At very high resolutions, the exam screen may appear very small. I found full HD 1920x1080 has the best resolution.
With that said, a colleague recently took the exam on a 27", 21:9 2560x1440 screen and had no problems. So, do test it out.

Another question is, I have heard that during exams there is a huge delay, for Europe systems are US based and that is the reason? Thank You very much in advance.


The exam systems are provisioned to the closest data center depending on the timezone selected by the candidate. As long as you have a decent internet connection that does not restrict connections to our servers, you should have no problems with your exam.

Regards,

Hi All,

I'm getting ready to sit the RHCSA. I have 2 questions:

  1. I have three monitors that are mounted on an arm. Can I just unplug all but one and show the exam proctor? If not what do I need to do?
  2. I am working my way through the exam prep pdf, found here: tr-remote-exams-preparation-ebook-f27382-202103-en.pdf
    1. It shows the how to check the integrity of the image by running: Windows cmd:
      C:\Users\user>Certutil -hashfile C:\Users\user\Downloads\rhrexboot.iso MD5
      1. The result on the pdf shows: The MD5 checksum for the Live USB Image is: 585cb364da1ae2fae94e22e07913316e.
    2. I recieve a valid checksum but not the same result as above. Has anyone else ran into this issue? Am i doing someting wrong? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi @locious ,

Yes, you can unplug the monitors (and cover them with a cloth if possible). Your exam proctor will verify they are connecting before proceeding with the exam.

The correct checksum should be 0dd72ac558fc1afbf0c0e1fa4b366f10 . I have alerted the team to update the pdf.

I've downloaded the ISO several times and on different computers, but the MD5 differs from the one provided in the PDF. Which one is the correct one?

Hi @ErlingtonJC ,

The md5sum is supposed to be:

0dd72ac558fc1afbf0c0e1fa4b366f10

I have submitted a request to have the PDF corrected. Thank you for alerting us.

Hi,

Sorry if this has been asked before.  My laptop keyboard is broken right now, so I use an external keyboard,

But I would need my laptop open for the second camera so I could use the screen there too rather than an external monitor, so I m stuck on the only one keyboard issue. Is that a hard requirement?

 

Thanks

Pat

Hi @Pat3 ,

Only one external camera is needed for the remote exam. A second camera is just a bonus for the exam proctor and is not mandatory.
However, you are only allowed to use a single screen and a single keyboard for your remote exam. If you are using an external keyboard, the laptop lid will need to be closed.

Hope that helps.
