DO403EA What's changing?

In the ROL environment I have noticed an early access to DO403.

What is changing? is the course/exam changing versions?

Re: DO403EA What's changing?

A major revision is in progress for the course, since the current version is rather outdated.  The new course will be based on Red Hat Satellite 6.6 and will have a number of changes and improvements to reflect feedback we've gotten on the old course and the new features that have been added to Satellite in updates to the software.  Watch the "Early Access" release for more content and information as the project continues.

(The course in question is RH403EA, Red Hat Satellite 6 Administration.)

Re: DO403EA What's changing?

DO403? Are you referring to RH403 Satellite Server?

The Curriculum team is at the beginning of developing RH403 using Satellite 6.6,  which was just released. As usual, the exam is being updated to match and will release after the course releases.

The new course is being edited for brevity. What used to require full explanations is now common industry knowledge. For example, the use of repositories and subscription management instead of channels. Back when Sat 6 was first released, configuration management tools like Puppet were novel technologies and needed to be thoroughly explained before being applied. Editing for brevity shortens many such topics to eliminate necessary details.

The most consistent change request is to replace the Puppet post-deployment content with the current standard, Ansible and Tower. But otherwise, provisioning remains fundamentally the same. Adding Tower to share inventory, understanding RHEL 8 system roles, and simplifying ad-hoc remote management with playbooks are examples of this updated content.

The Satellite interface has been updated to match the common technology now used for all Red Hat products. Also, we are putting more attention into teaching the Hammer CLI and the REST API for application and management integration.

There are a lot of new features in life cycle management and content views, but the structural core of those concepts have not changed. But on the provisioning side, the presentation is more practical and easier to understand and implement.

We still have significant work to do, so keep watching for the release announcement which will be when we will be ready to state and availability date.

Re: DO403EA What's changing?

Thank you for the updates. So the course and exam will be updated to 6.6 and more Ansible topics will come in. That's fine. My next question is when is this likely to be done. I want to take the ex403 exam but doesn't seem worthwhile while such a big overhaul is in progress
