    Hi Certdepot,

    Do you know any testing center in U.A.E Dubai or Pakistan for RHCSA ex200? I cannot find any useful information about them on RedHat website. In Pakistan, their examiners are not coming in near future.
    Do you have any info about Dubai?

    When you post the RHCSA7 Task of the day, do you provide the correct way to complete the task somewhere?

    Wanted to share how I locked myself
    out and none of the described methods
    worked any longer.
    However, the account is unlocked again
    when I mixed both methods this way:

    * interrupt grub with the ‘e’
    * change kernel line, doing both:
    – rhgb quiet => init=/bin/sh
    – appending ‘enforcing=0’
    * mount -o remount,rw /
    * passwd root
    * mount -o remount,ro /
    * exec /sbin/init
    * login to multiuser level
    * setenforce 1

    HTH someone

    Hi Certdepot Team,

    First I would like to thank you for the wonderful work you guys doing here.

    And I need to know one thing. I actually thought of writing the RHCSA and RHEL. I want to know that once fee is paid when do I get the exam scheduled. Why I am asking this question is that so that I can plan on my exam within the due date.

    Hi, I want to prepare for the exam also but I can’t get a link to download rhel7 and I am wondering if it’s possible for me to learn with CentOS.
    If any one has the link to download the iso it would be so helpful.

    Good morning, where do I find the answers to the task of the day ? Thank you

    • CertDepot says:

      The answers are documented throughout the various tutorials but there isn’t a specific location.

        I failed the RHCSA exam twice and I am planning on sitting for it a third time. My problem seems to be the software repository question. It’s a question I know how to do but I am wondering if the link provided is faulty. I copied it exactly as given after typing yum-config-manager –add-repo but it doesn’t work. As a result I am unable to answer the other questions due to a lack of packages. Does anyone else have an issue with the URL provided on the software repository question of the RHCSA exam?

        • Lisenet says:

          Have you tried creating a .repo file? That’s probably the easiest way of doing it. Give it a go.

        • Sam says:

          In addition to Lisenet.
          When you setup the Test OS. Delete the .repo files and write them from scratch. Practice this, and check for errors. I would suggest using your own local Repository, not connected to the internet. Certdepot has a tutorial on this using http (I use a local ftp repo).

          • Lisenet says:

            Agreed. There are many ways of practising this one, you can get a Spacewalk server up if you wish, you can use a locally mounted DVD etc. As long as you know how to write a .repo file, it doesn’t matter that much where a repository is located (ftp/http/file/etc).

    I would like to know what is the new RHEL version the RHCSA exam is using.

    When we mount a filesystem persistently in /etc/fstab,
    I see a lot of people mentioning the UUID for the RHCSA exam. Can’t we just add using the device name? Like this:
    /dev/sdb1 /mnt ext4 defaults 0 0
    Or does the exam require to use UUID?

    • CertDepot says:

      When you mount a filesystem persistently in /etc/fstab, it is a good practice to use the UUID because the device name can change between reboot.
      As the RHCSA exam is all about best practices, you should also use UUID during the exam.

      • Lisenet says:

        CertDepot has a really good point about best practices which you should stick to during the exam, however, you are free to use a device name if you want to as long as it works.

    Hey Certdepot,

    Thanks for sharing the information and instructions. Today I passed the RHCSA Exam with 233/300. I’m confident that I fulfilled 16/18 tasks and 2 for 50%. Only 233 points, at least got the certificate! Thanks!

    I’m not sure where to post this question, but I feel it’s an important one (to me, at least).
    I know we will be working with RedHat VMs, but which installation are the VMs? I’m not talking about RHEL version, and I don’t care if they’re CLI only, but the “minimal installation” is missing a lot of the TAB completion functionality that I’m relying on pretty heavily in my studies.
    I’d be grateful to know. Thanks.
