RHCSA Exam


Hi,

Today i attended RHCSA exam.

i created swap partition without toggle the partition.

and mkswap /dev/sda11 and swapon /dev/sda11

it worked , fstab edited. and even after reboot, it was ok.
i can see in the outpout of swapon -s
two partitions with newly added one i.e /dev/sda11

do you think it was ok or i am supposed to toggle the partition and set it to swap flag.

2) second question was searh a string say country in a file and copy all occurences in a new file? (this i was unable to do)

Regards,
parkar

please do not discuss exam contents here, it is NOT appropriate, especially as you signed a binding document to say you would not do *EXACTLY* what you are doing now.

Similar to the question you asked last year, about wanting the ANSWERS to the test:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...needed-888115/

If you've been working on your RH certification for about a year now, these are things you should already know.

Looks like he's doing it now for 2 years. He was already preparing the test for a year when last years post and apparently he didn't pass the test or he wouldn't probably ask info about it in here.

I wonder how these guys actually do their job ?

Sigh....

Congratulations that you have passed.

From this moment on my opinion on these exams are disappointing.

If you can't even answer your own questions with google at your hand that says a lot about the level of these exams.

Good luck.

"in reply to below."

you answered a post before someone wrote it, and when someone did, they quoted you replying to them ...? my head hurts!

Whilst sternones comments aren't worded terribly tactfully, I do generally agree that the exams are far too simple for a professional qualification that wants to be respected. I got 97% on my RHCE with zero effort, and I originally hoped to scrape through. I put that down to easy questions, not my skill.

I have never put stock in a 'certification', for the same reason. Every exam like that I've taken, I've done with little or no prep work, and passed by a LARGE margin like you, acid_kewpie. Can't tell you how many outsourcing firms I've been contacted by, who boast that ALL of their people have 'certifications'...if they manage to get in the door, my interviewing process of their employees before they start work is, to put it mildly, intense. If they can't answer questions like the ones above, it's over before they start.
