Hi @rm-rf ,

It seems I was late :)


Is this the latest fedora live image for the rhel certification?

Yes, this is the latest ISO. Which version did you use for the exam this time and did you have the CPU issues again?

It needs to have a 1m cable so therefore it has to be external..

Hi,

After reading the 'Redhat Remote Exam' document, I believe following two environments are possible for remote exam particularily with regard to camera(s) and USB ports. Could you please confirm them ?

Note that I already made Exam Bootable Image USB device.

 

Env 1 - Labtop with 1 embedded camera.

-- 1 additional external USB camera

-- USB port for Exam Bootable Image USB device. (Note that this USB port is //write protected//. It's read only and boot image can be successfully loaded from this port)

 

Evn2 - Desktop without any embedded cameras

-- 1 external USB camera

-- USB port for Exam Bootable Image USB device. (No restriction in this USB port)

-- USB ports for wired keyborad and mouse.

 

I could pass compatability testing for both two environments.

But  please confirm whether they are practically eligible in real exam.

Hi @jhkim ,

- An external web camera is mandatory for both desktops and laptops (Even if the laptop has an inbuilt webcam)
` The newer image loads the ISO to memory and prompts to unplug the USB device, freeing up one USB port.

With that aside, both your setups sound okay and meet the exam requirements.

Yeah, I have issue like this. With latest iso from this link I successfully created USB stick, but can not boot from it. 

I tried to crate usb from this https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso and it is working fine for me.

will the latest iso fix?

I mean, will the current latest image be fixed?

Now it does not work on any of my computers and with different USB.

And one more observation, you can try to change the USB drive. At the first attempt to boot from the old ISO, nothing worked for me, I tried to write the image to another USB stick and it all worked: I can boot from it and check my computer. As I was informed by RH support, the last image is unstable for many people. Still old can be used for the exam.
