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

Hi @Auria ,

Yes, That appears to be the most feasible option for your device.
Please run the compatibility test to check the functionality of the webcam, mouse, and keyboard before attempting the exam.

Best Regards,

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

HI @Auria 

Yes, you can use this format. 

If you are planning to use an external monitor however, the equation will change. You will need to close the laptop lid and use a wired external keyboard too. This will necessitate 4 USB ports. A USB hub can be used to connect your keyboard and mouse, while the bootable image and webcam can be plugged directly in to the other two ports.

Hope this clarifies.

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

@Chris_ 

Hi there,

I haven't seen this pixelated screen while testing. Do you get the same screen every time the live USB is booted?
We may have to investigate further to determine the cause if that is the case. Please raise a ticket here with your hardware details.

Could you also try booting the RE image on a different device and let me know how it goes.

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

Dear Chris. Some laptops have two graphics card. A discrete and integrated. The more powerful discrete card is mostly engaged when the computer runs on power cable while the integrated one is engaged when running on battery. Sometimes, you can enforce either of them in BIOS. It seems your issue is related to the grahics card. In case your laptop has both of them, you can consider changing the bios to the other one, if possible in your particular hardware.

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

Hi, Thanks for open this space.
My question is about the possible scenarios where the exam is considered a fault or potentially considered suspended. 

  1. ¿Which are those cases where the Exam could be potentially suspended?. ¿What happens to student? , ¿does the student have to pay again for the exam?
  2. Some FAQs says that if something causes the interruption of the exam (Network issues for example) and this happens in the first 30 minutes, the student has the possibility to re-schedule the exam.¿ What happens if the issue happens after the first  30 minutes? 
  3. ¿Are headphones allowed? (Just for NoiseCancelling) 

Thanks!

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

Thanks Deanna.

And Thanks much all SMEs joined here to support this community, and replying all questions candidates have!

Wonderful initiative!

For connectivity, I am at 100Mbps speed. Bandwitdh and connectivity over wi-fi and RJ-45 cable is stable so far, I ran a ping test to google, red hat and some other sites for 5-6 hours and there was only 3% lost over wifi, and 4% lost when tested on cable.! (Considering all interferences due to apartment setup.)

(Sorry if this question is repetitive!) My question is during the exam, in case if connection drops for few seconds, and re-established, Will the connectivity from my laptop to RH be established automatically, or , Do I need to restart whole test again ?

Thanks in advance.

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

Hi,@alpha_piyush 

I would say it would depends on the network interruption, its duration, etc...

For your information, during a Remote Exam, my connection was interrupted for around 10 seconds. The Remote Exam environment presented me with a specific screen saying there is a network interruption, and it was attempting to reconnect. It did reconnect automatically, I was able to resume working on the 4 hours exam.

On another note, 4% loss over cable seems high. Have you considered using other type of RJ45 cables which can protect on some interferences? For example cat6 cables have more protection against crosstalk than cat5 cables. Just a thought.

Cheers,
