I'm a little confused by the complete paradigm shift between RH254 and RH294 to become a RHCE.  Based on the respective ToCs, RH254 covers a lot of more advanced Linux administration skills (IPv6, various services and security settings, advanced storage, etc.) whereas RH294 covers none of that and only appears to cover how to use ansible to automate configuration of RedHat systems, and doesn't cover any of the underlying advanced concepts addressed in the prior exam.  Are those concepts really no longer needed for RHCE certification?  I ask because while I'm quite familiar with much of the content in the older exam, there are certain parts that I'm not because I just haven't needed them in the environments I've worked in and I don't want to get blindsided by them down the road.
