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

I don’t think so. The primary requirement for this exam is an external
camera with 1 meter length atleast. The proctor should be able to see you,
your keyboard/laptop. It won’t work with an integrated webcam. Did you try
the compatibility check, it won’t pass I guess.

Personal note: Try to order a webcam from Amazon or other quick delivery
services or reschedule exam until you get the items.

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

As it was stated by @Gineesh, you need a second camera as the proctor needs to have a wider view of your environment. 

And exam requires that you boot from a USB drive to access the exam, so you do need to have a free USB slot as well USB drive with the installed exam OS. Until then, I would recommend you postpone your exam if you don't get either item.

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

Hi @Rima ,

I see other answered, unfortunately without quoting the official information:

You should consult the official document:

Remote Exams Preparation Ebook 

Extract: "Webcam: One external webcam with at least a 1m cable."

Borrow one to someone you know if you can...

If you choose to buy a webcam, one of the learner, @PiotrS made a topic with hardware recommendations: RedHat-Remote-Exam-supported-hardware-cameras-mice-keyboards 

That should help you also,

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

Hi,

I am using a laptop with external monitor. In this set up I am asked to use a wired keyboard and a wired mouse and keep the laptop lid closed. I also have a external webcam. But since my laptop lid is closed what about the 2 camera requirement.

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

There is no 2 camera requirements as per my knowledge. You should have an
external camera by which proctor can see you and the keyboard/systems !

So if you are using an external monitor yes laptop lid need to close.
(Proctor will ask you to do so before starting exam

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

Hi @chrishemb ,

If you read just 1 post above yours, there's a link to official document and information that there's only 1 external webcam required.

I am not sure why you are saying that there is a "2 camera requirement", that is not currently accurate.

Hope that clarifies,

PS: your setup appears to be ok, wired keyboard, wired mouse, laptop lid closed, external monitor, external webcam. That's also how I attend Remote Exams.

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

Hi -
I'm getting an "Error 36: Rebuild USB Drive" on my Mac.
I've seen that some other user were able to make it work with an older ISO version. Where can I download the previous ISO, which is also allowed for the exam?

Thank you

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

I uses MacBook Pro. I run a Compatibility Test in the Remote Exam Live Environment ISO image. But my Mac keyboard doesn't work. Mouse works. I can proceed settings page, but could not red hat account login because key board does not work.

Could you give me any advice?

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

If I am not mistaken, MacBook (Mac OS) issues are known issues regarding
Fedora support. Did you check the guide on this issue?

No, I didn't check the guide on that issue. Could you let me know that known issue?
