Hi @locious ,


  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?

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.

  1. 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.

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.

Hi.

I found yesterday that some of conventional hotkeys are not working in exam environment.

Specifically you can't Alt+tab switch between windows in exam OS.

And, most importantly, Ctrl+w. Which can substantially slow down work in terminal and in vim (with split windows).

I suspect the later can be 'fixed' with vim keys remapping, but I can't be sure workaround keys will work in exam environment.

Has anybody dealt with this?

Hi, from my own experiences, unless you have a way to get familiar with that specific exam environment, you should stick to the basics.

I got once impacted by using some of the "paste text" feature, my terminals went crazy, no longer responded, etc...that's not something you want during an exam.

I have learned to focus on what's bringing points, rather than wasting precious exam time on getting familiar with that environment. For example, for copy/paste I go to "edit copy; edit paste". That's less convenient than keyboard shortcuts but that works!

If someone has the answers, then feel free to share and experiment them- Until then, I chose the cautious approach.
