Hi Rashid,

I'm not sure, but it sounds like you are hoping to run the text image in a VM. If so this will probably not be useful to you. Getting it to boot successfully in a VM will only show that it boots there, not that it will boot on your hardware. You cannot take the exam using the test image in a VM, only on bare metal.

Doe this help?

I think its safe to ask this question. On the test main page, is there a requirement to check the boxes for 'Done', 'Revisit', or even boxes inside the question prompts? It seems to me this is just for our own benefit. I left quite a few checked to revisit and now I'm thinking they weren't graded?

I'm positive that those progress markers are for your information only. Grading will be done solely based on what you've created on your test systems.

The e-mail with your test results contains a link to contact Red Hat to query them about your results. I've found this very helpful, even though you won't get all the details because of the certification NDA.

What type of info can I get from the query? Also, I feel as though I did not receive partial scoring for some partially answered questions. Any truth to this being the case?

Impossible.
This checkbox as you thought for only ease of use to review uncompleted
tasks and does not affect grading at all.
This is mentioned as a note in exam introductory information.

Got a new question. This was not on my test, but rather in practice labs. Set account expiry date for 90 days from now. Seems to me you can use 'usermod -e date', but Red Hat labs indicate the use of 'chage -E date' instead. Both methods set the 'account expires' in chage -l to the requested date. My question: If I use usermod, but Red Hat wants chage, do I get the question wrong?

Exams only care about the outcome, and are assessed automatically. Whether you use usermod, chage or edit stuff manually in  /etc/shadow, /etc/password it should not matter as long as the modification is done successfully.

Thanks for confirming that. I would hate to think I'm being graded on my process for getting to the desired result. After all, a reboot is a reboot is a reboot!

Hi, as per the email for taking remote exams it has been mentioned only one physical monitor allowed. so we can't use as extended monitor with laptop  if we need to use keyboard / mousepad of the laptop ?

Does that mean laptop connected to one physical monitor but laptop closed ? if that's the case need to use wired keyboard and mouse ?

  • Monitors: Only one physical display will be allowed for the exam.

If you are using the external monitor then yes you need to close the laptop
lid. And Ofcourse you have to use external keyboard and mouse- only wired
and no wireless allowed. --
