RHCSA Exam Mistakes

Jump to solution

Not too sure if this post belongs here, please let me know if I'm in the wrong place.

I recently took the RHCSA and failed in spectacular fashion.

In hindsight, I attribute the reason for my failure to the way would set up my lab while taking a practice test.

I would use 2 VM connected over a network with DHCP enabled and internet access.

I would use online free registers for my container images, instead of practicing subscribing to the RedHat registries.

I would also exclusively practice configuring my repositories from RedHat ISO, instead of a server.

To say the least, I neglected anything that had to do with a network. I hope my post will help someone not make the same mistake.

I was wondering if anybody knew how to construct a better lab environment where I can more effectively practice for my retake. Especially when it comes to repositories and registries.

Thank!

 

Best, Goran

Did RH tell you clearly in the exam what repo you should you? They should and not let the examinee guessing.

Hey Quin, they don't really tell you if you are going to be getting the repo form a ISO image or if you need to get it form the network. That why I suggested you practice both just in case. ;)

I'm really sorry to hear that you're so nervous about your exam retake, Deepika. I can understand it fully, exams can be very stressful. 

You have done everything that you need to do: test your work, reboot, test your work again. 

Make very sure that you follow the instructions from Red Hat to the letter. Typing mistakes in names, numbers, words etc will make you fail a scoring because the scripts will simply ignore / not see your work.

Just use docker.io . it should be fine. In the exam, it just simply use a very simple container where you need to connect two mount point from hosts to the container. Use of multiple -v

And yea about the networking stuff focus on "nmcli" - that should bring u close to 210 . cheers

I'm having trouble understanding why the RHCSA exam seems easier than the system exam I took last week. It's quite puzzling to me why I need to reboot after using the useradd command. This requirement feels odd, especially considering I was confident in about 80% of my answers. Receiving a score of zero is disheartening, especially when I put in so much effort. RedHat really needs to review their script thoroughly; something doesn't seem right. It's frustrating and discouraging. Can you make sense of this?
