I guess this will work,.

Reboot your machine and pray there is no grub password,

1. Restart the System.
2. You will get the boot loader GRUB screen.
3. Press a and type 1 or s for single mode
ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb queit s
4. System will boot on Single User mode.
5. Use passwd command to change.
6. Get in and cause confusion!!!!

I am preparing for my RHCE exam too. I have already fixed the date!!! I need better question to test my knowledge. Please ask more!!!

I do not think they go this far to make your life hell in the troubleshooting part of the RHCE Exam but I will give it a try. I will let you know my result.
If you know other stuff I can try my hands on to help improve my troubleshooting please teach me.

But current exam pattern is changed than the time you took it. And my opinion on current exam pattern is it's far too easy than it was before. The persons who passed on the earlier exam patters, like you, are geniune and no doubt about your knowledge. But those who are passing now I don't think they are properly judged with current exam pattern.
Thats just my opinion though.

What in particular do you think the new RHCE test is lacking, tanveer?

My opinion is, its not judging the candidates true potential. The exam is now all about configuring things. I would say that it was a mistake to remove the troubleshooting part. Honestly I have seen people pass RHCE new format exams who doesn't even have a clue how to login if u change the shell of root in /etc/passwd file which is bad because that will put him and me in the same row. The worst part will be people will lost faith in RHCEs.
Before giving RHCEs I saw one of my colleague who had an RHCE can't even mount the usb drive in an IBM blade server in our data center and called me for that.

Configuring those packages won't judge because they are not getting well attached with the errors what could happen while configuring those.

But the persons in Exam section is much much more knowledgeable than me so its just my opinion.

Wow I was so pumped up about this exam. If they took out the troubleshooting portion I will be mad as hell. I was looking forward to reviving a non bootable system. (Not that I need any help. Since starting my new job I had to revive two non bootable vm's)

You are right about people will lose faith. I am in the same boat. I mainly use the command line to configure all services / lvm's / and even the iptables. It will take me longer to actually configure things by gui then by hand at this point.

One question for you? During your installation portion would they let you turn off Selinux or did they make you keep it on. I know that Selinux can cause problems with services so if they let you turn it off that will be one less thing to worry about on the exam.

@jstephens84,.. Please stay pumped up,. I think it will be helpful.
On people losing faith I think so too,... but as the exams stands now, it is still far harder than the rest,. except for CCIE Lab.
About your question,.. This is an open forum and I am sure nobody will answer that for you. I know the answer is some where on the Redhat Study guide(Redhat's Website) and Also on Jang's Book,.. http://www.amazon.com/Certified-Engi...7740987&sr=8-2

Good Luck.

The book from amazon is the one I am studying with. I will go back and see if I can find the answer to my question.

@jstephens84,... There is a book recommended by stef80,.. I took a good look at the content of the book,.. Red HatŪ Certified Technician & Engineer (RHCT and RHCE) Training Guide and Administrator's Reference by Asghar Ghori. It is a good book and well laid out. I think I will be getting one since I want to retake my RHCE. There is a whole Section on troubleshooting. I am guessing it will be a good buy.

@stef80,.. Thanks for recommending the list of books.
