Recently completed the DO180 course. The lab hours are finished, so I was wondering if there any guided steps to self-host the lab so I can study/practice on my own computer.
Installing OpenShift is not a simple endeavour, there is a course dedicated to this subject (DO322) and that has the administrator course (DO280) as a pre-requisite. Not to mention that you require quite powerfull hardware to do so.
Fortunately Red Hat provides a couple easy ways to play with OpenShift without having to install a full cluster by yourself:
Both of them would be sufficient for you to practice DO180-level skills.
I just registered for the DO180 course. I am on chapter 1 session 7. I cant even find the Lab Environment tab that is being talked about.
How do I navigate there?
It should be in the same page you read the online book:
Click the tab and you 'll see the button to create your classroom:
If you don't... check your web browser version, try cleaning its cache and using a private windows. If nothing else works, open a customer support ticket.
The next time you could start with the customer support ticket because they would probably answer you faster than the learning community. They are there to help self-paced customers access and use the course environment.
There is another option for get into openshift is https://learn.openshift.com
There a lot of lab scenarios and playground exist. All works just in a web browser and even do not require registration in advance.
But those scenarios not from DO180 GE and Labs, there are different.
