on questions: Which of these commands searches for a package name containing a specific command called restorecon?
I believe that there aren’t any yum whatprovide option
There is a yum whatprovides option but no yum whatprovide.
yum whatprovides */restorecon
Correct me if I am wrong. Based on this question it should be -d instead of -b?
Which of these commands creates a user member of the supplementary group called team with a home directory called /opt/user?
Answer provided is:
useradd -aG -b /opt user
However from man,
-b, –base-dir BASE_DIR base directory for the home directory of the
-d, –home-dir HOME_DIR home directory of the new account
I think both options can be used.
I actually had the same questions so I looked into it. In the options given by the questions the -d would not work. I’m pretty sure when you use -d you have to give the full path to the home directory so it would need to be something like:
useradd -G team user -d /opt/user
The -b option appends the username to the path in the command. So out of the options given only the -b option will correctly set the home directory to /opt/user.
Personally, I find the useradd man page about the -b and -d options not very clear.
Initially I chose the -b option. Recently, I reread the man page and was not so sure …

@CertDepot Is this still valid for the current EX200 RHEL 7 exam? If not, can you link to it. Thanks for the great site!
Yes, I think this is still valid.
Can you please explain for me. I can’t understand this.
$ echo [10-19].txt
Create a new directory and go to it: # mkdir test; cd test
Create the 4 following files: # touch 0.txt 1.txt 2.txt 3.txt
List the new created files: # ls -> 0.txt 1.txt 2.txt 3.txt
Now, you can use a filter to select some of these files (here [0-2] specifies a range): # echo [0-2].txt -> 0.txt 1.txt 2.txt
Here, we select only 2 files: # echo .txt -> 0.txt 3.txt
The expression echo [10-19].txt is a mistake: it should be written echo .txt
 represents the characters 1 and 0, [0-1] means  because there isn’t any other character between 0 and 1.
I hope it’s clearer. Also, don’t spend too much time on this, this is not critical!
Thank You CertDepot.
Objective: “Change of root password without knowing it”
I wonder how they will ask this question. Will they ask to setup a lab? In the case if they won’t provide root password and ask us to create one means if I fail to generate one, exam is gone?
They will ask you to reboot a virtual machine and change the root password. If you don’t succeed, you will get a zero! And you won’t be the first!
Doing pretty well, about to take the RHCSA on Friday. Hopefully I pass, your site has been a huge help. Thanks
I passed on the 30th! Thanks again, I’ll be utilizing your RHCE resources as well now.
for the question: Which command to remove the user mary from a secondary group called team?
the answer is wrong: # gpasswd -d user mary
should be # gpasswd -d mary team
You are perfectly right. I just changed the answers.
Normally I take extra care to double-check all the answers, because providing wrong answers is worse than providing no answers.
But this time, two answers were awfully written. I apologize for this.
Thanks again for letting me know.
Thank you for making quiz. I went through it many times to study and also learned some handy shortcuts from it.
It was done for this purpose!
