[rhce] ldap


Hey There!

i just wanted to check this with somebody who did the RHCE exam recently.
Looking at the website (https://www.redhat.com/en/services/t...neer-rhce-exam) They do not mention LDAP at all.
Shall i expect it anyways?

Regards,

If you're asking about RHCE, then you should be well aware of the non disclosure agreement, that says folks can't answer questions about the exam. If it's not mentioned on their website, take that for what it's worth. And honestly if you're going to get a 'certification', why not get as much knowledge as you can, rather than trying to avoid learning things??

I know nothing about these exams.

However: "You should know about LDAP as it relates to Linux, Windows and so-forth." It is also a good idea to know something about "Kerberos."

You should familiarize yourself with Microsoft's implementations, which they call "Open Directory" (and various other things). These are commonly used – because they happen to be very good – and Microsoft has also written some really great documents about them both for the public and on their MS Developer Network (MSDN) sites. Apple has done similar things, tilting a little toward Kerberos because (as I happen to know ...) that's what they use "on the inside."

You should familiarize yourself with the concepts that are being used ... understand why large companies use these technologies, and how they are applied. Even small companies find "single sign-on" to be advantageous. It's almost certain that you will encounter it, because "no one uses password-files and shadow-files out there."

Eh? i dont think that's the exact meaning. However, who tells you that i am trying to "avoid" to learn things? I am just very thoughtful about it and i want to make sure i am preparing for it good. Setting LDAP by memory requires a bit more of effort compared to the rest and sincerely, i don't like to learn stuff by memory, so i wanted to ask around how people can remember all of that by memory (Assuming, that it was part of the exam).

Familiarize with the concepts is indeed the best! but that doesn't mean learn stuff by memory! In this specific case, is not that straight forward with LDAP.

Thank you everybody for your answers and your time!

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

You can always look at the NDA at; https://www.redhat.com/f/pdf/rha/RHAcademyNDA.pdf
Quote:

In consideration of the mutual covenants set forth in this Agreement and intending to be legally bound, the parties agree as follows;
I strongly suggest that you read the entire NDA to realize why people will not discuss Red Hat exams or materials.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

To be fair, proper study takes time... nothing wrong with being economical with time. Judicious use of time is actually a pretty important principal in these things.

LDAP is not an easy technology to learn. In fact, it is arcane. However, in any business of any size you will encounter it (and/or Kerberos), because it enables a company to manage resources centrally. When you swipe your badge at the front door, an LDAP query might tell the lock whether-or-not to open. When you sign-on to perhaps hundreds of different types of computers, internal web-sites and so on, LDAP can be the central resource that provides your password and other credentials – as well as the authorization to do things. It would be completely impractical for them to do this with "password files," and it would be much less secure.

And so, that's why it's covered in that study course and its associated exams: because you need to know about this.

I would wager that any examination worth its salt would ask you to d-o things, and that you ought to practice doing them. Don't try to "read a book about swimming."
