Prepping for RHCE after passing RHCSA

Jump to solution

I've been studying for RHCSA for about the last four months and passed the exam yesterday on the first attempt with a 229. I am wanting to move on to the RHCE next. I am going to lean heavily on RH294 to prep for it and supplement with a few other resources. Is it reasonable to think that I could be exam ready in 6-8 weeks if I put the time in for some serious study?

The reason I am trying to complete it soon is that I have the RHLS just through January and am trying to maximize the exams I attempt in that time period. Any help from those who have been there would be awesome!

@vermilyear Thank you, I would like to have some friends to encourage each other through the learning journey and share information and so on if you don't mind and if this is not against the community.

This is my email: ahmad.jadelrab@gmail.com

I passed the RHCSA exam a month ago. I took the RHCE exam 2 days ago and passed it. It took me about a month to be prepared for it (i took RH294 course).
The RHCE exam is very challenging. The duration of the exam is 4 hours and I found it as one of the hardest RH exam I have ever taken. So my advice to you would be: be really really well prepared. Do alot of practical work. 4 hours sounds alot, but there are 18 questions which take quite a time to be done so you wont have much time for documentation and brainstorming.
I was really tired after it but also happy when i saw the results because i am RHCA level II now.

Hi @dkcbk ,

Congratulations on passing RHCE, Can you confirm to me that studying from Red Hat is enough, or do I need to study from outside sources too? if I need to study from outside sources can you refer us to that sources, please?

 

Thank you for your help and time.

 

Regards,

Ahmed Jadelrab

@dkcbk Congratulations on passing both the RHCSA and RHCE exams and achieving RHCA Level II! It's clear that you put in a lot of hard work and dedication to prepare for and successfully complete these exams. Your advice to be well-prepared, do a lot of practical work, and manage your time effectively during the exam is certainly valuable for anyone considering taking these exams.

Can Someone explaim where i'm going wrong I keep getting 0% for templating "hosts.j2" on the exam and the managed nodes fail they with si,mple jinja2 templating, is there something that I need to install, update.  If I run a "ansible all -m setup -a "filter=ansible_default_ipv4" i get a result, if we run it from a playbook it fails, my playbooks and jinja2 are correct but just get errors when I run the playbook, i cannot remember the error exactly but it fails.

Maybe one of the two links will help you
https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/playing-ansible-facts
* https://medium.com/opsops/ansible-default-ipv4-is-not-what-you-think-edb8ab154b10

Took me some time to understand this part of the first link 

ansible_facts["ansible_system"] 
ansible_facts["system"]

My jinja2 template and my playbook,

 

[cad@ans29 ansible]$ cat hosts.*
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

{% for host in groups['all'] %}
{{ hostvars[host]['ansible_enp0s8.ipv4.address'] }} {{ hostvars[host]['ansible_fqdn'] }} {{ hostvars[host]['ansible_hostname'] }}
{% endfor %}

- name: deploy template
  hosts: all

  tasks:
    - name: deploy template
      template:
        src: hosts.j2
       dest: /home/cad/myhosts.txt
