i check red hat site:

Windows system administrators:
Red Hat System Administration I (RH124)
Red Hat System Administration II with RHCSA Exam (RH135)

Linux or UNIX administrators:
RHCSA Rapid Track Course with Exam (RH200)*

to become RHCSA: can go for RH200 or take the two path RH124 and RH135?

To have a valid RHCE you need to have a valid RHCSA.

- Red Hat certifications
- Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA)
- Red Hat Certified Engineer RHCE

Quote from the RHCE link:
Quote:
Candidates for RHCE must also earn a RHCSA certification. Candidates may take the RHCE Exam (EX300) before the RHCSA Exam (EX200), but the RHCSA must be earned before RHCE is awarded.

You replied to yourself while I was answering.

You don't need any certification to take/earn RHCSA. Make sure you know the material and sign up for the exam.

thanks for the replies guys, i must admit i'm a windows guy.

the two way path should be better right:

Red Hat System Administration I (RH124)
Red Hat System Administration II with RHCSA Exam (RH135)

These two exam will eventually lead to RHCSA right?

Those 2 (RH124 and RH135) are recommendations and not required to take the RHCSA exam.

Assuming that you have Linux (preferably RedHat/CentOS) knowledge I wouldn't invest in those 2 and do the following:

- Make sure you know what the RHCSA objectives are (re-check regularly, they might change over time),
- Buy, beg for or borrow RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification Study Guide (Exams EX200 & EX300),
- Load RedHat/CentOS and start doing the exercises.

Depending on your current knowledge, you'll be ready in a few weeks/months to take the RHCSA exam. The biggest problem during the exam isn't the material itself but the time you have to do all the assignments.

I do have the EX200 and EX300 materials from a friend, i have a laptop which should be good enough to handle VMs.

But I want to assemble a new desktop (if budget allows) or i'll try to find a second hand desktop which should be good enough to load CentOS or RedHat.

Wheew..this would be a new journey.. Thanks druuna.

Make sure your hardware is up to the task. I used the following set-up:

1 - multi-boot system (RHEL 6 being one of the options),
2 - base: minimal graphic RHEL 6 with KVM,
3 - running (at times multiple) VM's from the base system.

The above makes sure you are using a 100% RedHat environment.

Thanks druuna.
You're welcome

that's a good setup.

That's why I want to get a new or old desktop that can install Redhat.

Because if only VM, I might not be able to install KVM.

I'm not sure whether we can run a virtual machine on the top of another virtual machine. hehehe.. i guess that would not be possible as of this moment.

Thanks again

For RHCSA all you need is two CentOS installations your VM with a Virtual Network... you must have atleast 1 GB allocated for each vm machines

This is how i practiced

Although RHEL is a paid for product, you are allowed to use it for testing, studying or evaluation purposes. You won't have access to the on-line repositories (RHN). That shouldn't be a problem, all that is needed is present on the downloaded DVD.

RedHat download page: RedHat Downloads (You do need an account to access the actual download url's).

Once you have downloaded and installed RHEL you might want to have a look here: RHEL local DVD Repo

If you feel uncomfortable using RHEL you can use either of these:
- CentOS
- Scientific Linux

The above 2 are free and almost fully compatible with RHEL.

I took the exam on Friday morning and the result was e-mailed to me Sunday evening (this was almost 2 years ago).
