A general question for Red Hat certified engineers. How in depth does the topics go? Based on the red hat syllabus https://www.redhat.com/training/rhce...e_content.html
Things like kernel manipulation, sendmail, and DNS can go pretty in depth.
However since the certification really encapsulate a broad amount of topics, I wonder what is the level of depthness on which this certification goes upon.
Some of the topics I got a bit of a chill where:
- The Linux kernel: variants and modules
- Setting up a host-based firewall
- The SELinux security layer
- Kickstart: a hands-free method of installation
- Configuring the GRUB boot loader
- Authentication Configuration: Pluggable Authentication Modules
- Network Authentication
- Protecting the system using a packet filtering host-based firewall
- Using sendmail and postfix
Some of this are put up as the only thing required is learning to use the service (rather than configuring it) such as sendmail. While others are a bit broad, like Network Authentication.
Or the kernel variants might just be just understanding the concepts on the kernels and definitions to a full management of modules configuration and recompilation of it.
Can anyone comment on how real does this topic list to the actual certification requirement?
