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

Hi @charith1994,

EX407 (V7) was due for public release this week. The internal pilot tests were extended through this week at the last minute. The website was updated as part of it's original release. Apologies for the confusion. EX407 is expected to be available as a Remote Exam in about a week from now. 

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

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

Hi @yusuf-yazici ,

I think the answer is no, based on the rules:

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

Source: https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... 

I also do not see where one would configure that in that secure Remote Exams live environment...

Having said that maybe it's worth to clarify or modify the Getting Ready document, explicitally commenting on the use of IP Webcams? 

@shefeeqyr Could you kindly consolidate my answer?

Cheers,

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

 
IP Webcams and all other arrangements that would leverage a cellphone into a Webcam are a No currently.  One of the key policies of a remote exam as well as a testing center exam is that the cellphone of the candidate must not be in the vicinity, or switched off. 
If you walk into a Testing Center, the local point of contact would help with safekeeping of your phone.
 
Similarly, using an earplug or headphone is not allowed either (except under special medical circumstances that are reviewed and approved in advance).
This is to ensure that we minimize the presence of any device or medium that has the potential to render help or reference materials.
 
Particularly with a cellphone acting as a Webcam, there are considerations such as what would you do if you get a call/message in between, security questions of how/whether we can lockout a phone completely and make it act as a pure camera and so on.  Things that might see a solution in the future, but are not part of what could be brought out to the market in a short time.
To sum it up, IP cams, cellphone cams or a second laptop's integrated webcam are all not allowed for remote exams.
 
Best Regards,
Shefeeq

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

Hi @yusuf-yazici 

What generation (release year) of MacBook Pro are you using? 

This is new at least to me. The remote exam image will never ask for any update. Nevertheless, if your Macbook Pro is from 2018 and onwards, it's T2 security chip might dislike booting from an external media. You can read more about it at https://support.apple.com/en-in/HT208198.

If you are unable to boot from the USB drive on your MacBook pro, you can try the same drive on another laptop, if available, to isolate any Macbook Pro specific issues.

MacBook Pros with T2 chips seem to have compatibility issues with most of the Linux distributions. Hence this is impacting our remote exam image that is derived out of Fedora Workstation 32. While we had some luck with 2018 models, keyboard and touchpad did not work for a couple of 2019 Pro users.

Regards,

Shefeeq
