I have used Fedora Media writer to copy the iso. But when I attached it back to my RHEL computer it kept asking for authentication. Screenshot from 2023-05-19 12-55-59.png

I contacted help and they asked me to use my personal computer since the company machine might be the problem. I then used my personal windows machine and at the boot menu when I selected my USB with ISO, it complained that the image is not authenticated. What I need to do? What I am missing?

Can you post what it looks like when you boot from your personal Windows machine? So far, the screen show appears to you trying to connect to the volume from a Linux desktop, which I doubt you are allowed to do, company machine or not.

Hi,

The iso file prompts for password when you try to open it. You need not open the file. Try to insert the USB drive to your laptop and select boot option to proceed further. Likely, Error image is not authenticated" is related to secure boot compliance in your system.

The latest Remote Exam ISO is not secure boot compliant and may not work on systems that have the Secure Boot setting "enabled".You can try another system (if available) and see if it boots from the ISO.

When I try to boot from the iso, my boot menu does not even give me an
option to boot from the iso. I can only boot from the hard drive. That is
because the iso on my USB never gets mounted because of that fricking
authentication issue.

You should NOT put the ISO file on the USB. 

You need to use the ISO file as input to do a byte-by-byte write to the USB drive, for example using dd  (on Linux or MacOS) or Rufus (on Windows).

The ISO is not a file which you should put on the USB drive. The ISO file is the USB drive. ... so to speak.

Why Rufus? Fedora Media Writer works on Linux, Mac and Windows

I just tested the exam ISO and it fails to reach graphical.target ; I use this same machine for rawhide/mainline kernel development and testing and assume it's likely something to do with amdgpu in the remote cert environment being too old. Where do I raise a ticket - this forum seems to be the only link readily findable. It should be up front in the exam prep/environment check distribution mail.

Hi,

Red Hat has to cope with a few security concerns and challenges to protect its intellectual property and exam consistency. Creating a system bootable on the entire ever-expanding group of hardware is a difficult task, especially meeting the above-mentioned security and other criteria. 

Where do I raise a ticket -The customer feedback form or link to raise service ticket is readily available from your exam confirmation email . 

To open a support ticket please follow the link below:

If you have screenshots or attachments to share, please send an email instead to: certification-team@redhat.com

Many people are reporting issues with the RHREXBOOT.ISO.

Some are reporting success in trying an older version of the ISO, like here -> https://learn.redhat.com/t5/General/Cannot-Boot-Remote-Exam-Live-ISO-USB-for-Remote-Exam-Boot/td-p/1...

Others simply run into the problem that their chosen hardware is not compatible with the OS and software on the ISO. You will then need to try another computer.
