F*** up of the year

I spend this week on participating in a RHEL5 system administration couse, very nice couse, nice to get out in corners of administrating a RHEL5 system.

Today it was RHCT exam day, there is 2 test, a one hour troubleshooting test and a two hour installation & configuration test.

The first test was pretty easy.

The second was a little harder, but i completed all the questions in time, i the last question there was a need to modify the root entry in /etc/fstab, and i made a typo, i forgot to reboot the system in the end, so i didn’t catch the problem.

When the instructor reboot the system for grading the boot fail and root was mounted as readonly, so the network wasn’t started so it could not be graded, so the test was failed, what a F*** up.

    Perhaps you forgot that you signed a non-disclosure agreement concerning any aspect of that test. I would suggest you pull the post pretty quick, or
    at least revise it. I know you’re not giving away detailed details, but I think it’s enough to land you in trouble..

    Sorry to hear that you failed 😦

    The first time I took the RHCE exam, I failed miserably. The second time, I failed again but at least got the RHCT credential out of it.

    The second time, I made the mistake of forgetting to setup the raid array at install time, and couldn’t get it installed properly from the command line LOL.

    Either way I’ll be back to pass that darn RHCE and I’m sure you will too!

    Hi Choy

    As part of the test i have signed a a non disclosure agreement, so i cant tell you anything about the content of the test.
    The RH133 Course will cover the stuff you need to know to take the test.
