Any date planned for RHCE https://www.redhat.com/en/services/certification/rhce. to be available on RHEL 9 https://developers.redhat.com/articles/2022/05/18/whats-new-red-hat-enterprise-linux-9 ?
Please comment. Thanks in Advance.
RHCE moved from being an expert or advanced level of Linux skills--kind of comparative to LPIC-2 vs LPIC-1 to what it is now, RHCE is about infrastructure automation.
According to this FAQ RHCE moved from being an elevated LINUX SME to more of an ANSIBLE based knowledge.
I say that because your question of "Is there a new RHCE for RHEL 9?" is kind of a moot question when you look at the RHCE exam objectives 8/9 sections are specifically about Ansible features or Functions while the last 1/8 is a brief review of your RHCSA skills. Near to nothing on the exam will be about your RHEL skills.
Hope this helps!
I came looking for this info, thanks.
I'm LPIC2 and RHCSA looking to be a an All-Out Linux Battle tank, and then specialize in Ansible or whateer automation I wanted.
But requirements seems to focus only on ansible, and here's the kicker, I know a couple of ansible experts in my current company, but they can't even set up a Postfix, or Radius server, and don't get me started with LDAP which is completely alien for them, both of these are Industry's standards...
This discourages me deeply, All I wanted was to be that, an All-Terrain Linux Battle Tank, focused on RedHat which is my first love since 2015.
I'll just take the training for "showcasing" but from now on will focus on "kay-eight's" and the other "Foundation" ( wont mention their names to avoid being banned or censored)
I think this is a good direction for the RHCE. Infrastructure as code is the future, automation and agile scaling is key. Do you think that there is still a valid need for a certification that verifies advanced Linux administration skills like the old RHCE did?
Maybe it's a mood point because Linux administration is evolving and changing and advanced Linux administration is now in the category of automation?
ex294 should be back to ex407 ansible exam or retire , and ex300 should be released again as linux all around player challenging exam (mix of ex358 ex342 ex436 ex442 and more). RHCE should be back again as a valuable certification that reflects a linux professional expert.
