That should be OK - I've used a similar setup in the past and hadn't had any issues or comments from surprised proctors.

Hi,
I am not sure but I think it is possible especially if you are not using an
external monitor as you will keep the laptop lid open in this case.
You can also try to move the ID a little away from the external camera and
it may be readable in this case.

Hello.

I'm getting problem when I download the Remote Exam Live Environment ISO:

It seems to be a damaged ISO: I try to load in Windows and appears an error saying the ISO is damaged.

Then I write the ISO to USB using the Fedora Media Writer and then booting the USB in my PC, but just stay in the grub shell. Can you do the same test? https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot.iso

tl:dr I can't boot the environment ISO with the USB in my PC.

Hi,

your downloaded ISO file should have the checksum SHA256: c7002c0453d0ad086b6fec188c73c13fb5501228b6d6597653706d56bcef8e7b (as of May 30th 2022).

I'm guessing that the ISO file can't be mounted in Windows, because it's not an CD-ROM/DVD image.
If your file matches the checksum, and since Fedora Media Writer is able to write it to your stick, you'll most probably have to tweak some GRUB settings to make the boot medium work on your setup. Ask Red Hat support, if needed.

For remote exams if the area an exam is being taken in experiences a rolling blackout due to local electric company cutting power, then how do we deal with this?

Reasons for asking:

- they are happening

- no schedule on when they will happen (all based on base load needs)

Thanks in advance,

Fate

I have downloaded the iso to my usb drive to test it. I am able to boot my laptop with it but cannot connect to wifi. Is this to be expected? If this is not to be expected how can I troubleshoot this?

When you say that you cannot connect to wifi, are you saying you can't see the WIFI network, or can you see the WIFI networks but you are unable to connect to those networks? If the latter, what message was it returning?

it is the latter. I can see me wifi and attempt to connect, I enter my password, the connection either "appears" connected, OR, rejects my password.

 

Once i get the password accepted I close the setting window and a new window pops up stating that:

"Networking does not appear to be configured. Click OK to configure it now".

I faced this issue before and it was resolved by using the older ISO.
After around 3 weeks, I tested again the newer ISO and did not face this
issue with no intervention.

I tried with the older iso now and got the same result. I am going to abandon my wifi and try cabling direct to my router after I reset it. Thank you very kindly for the help and insights. I will update again once I've made my changes as to the result.
