what are the differences, I thought the only differences between them was the logo and the name

I passed using centos but the only difference I saw was the method of package selection. meaning for whatever reason the grouping of packages initially (during install) seems to be done differently.

I don't see how that would make you pass or fail, I think it would be pretty simple to figure that out

I think so. I'm still waiting for the results. Which is unusual, since I hear you almost always get them within a couple hours after the test is over.

It probably won't make you pass or fail, but I don't see any reason not to practice with the actual distro you are going to be tested against. There is also a difference with the RHN, and default install options. This can make a difference, depending on how you go about doing an installation. I can't talk about the test explicitly, but suffice it to say that I recommend to those that are practicing, to use Red Hat, not CentOS, for the installation process. You can get it free, here. After 30 days, you can no longer access the RHN, but the software is GPL -- so it's free to use (you can point to the CentOS repos if you want, but no need to, really).

If some of you guys are in school (like me) you can get RHEL 5.1 academic version for about $60 USD

http://www.redhat.com/solutions/educ...ic/individual/

This gives you access to RHN for a year.

Just a thought...I mean; you are already paying for the test and buying books...what's another 60 bucks

Question Rhce

And during the installation part. It is better to install all the network services packages during the installation.

Don't know how the test is (still studing )

But when I'm in school I always install EVERYTHING...I find it that it makes it easier to do the projects if everything is installed...so that way you don't have to bother with installation...just configuration

I wouldn't do that with a production server though

Woo Hoo!! I just got my results, and had to come share. Forgive me, but I have to brag a little:

Code:
SECTION I:    TROUBLESHOOTING AND SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
RHCE requirements:  completion of compulsory items (50 points)
                    overall section score of 80 or higher
RHCT requirements:  completion of compulsory items (50 points)

Compulsory Section I score:                        50.0
Non-compulsory Section I score:                    50.0
Overall Section I score:                           100

SECTION II:  INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION
RHCE requirements: score of 70 or higher on RHCT components (100 points)
                   score of 70 or higher on RHCE components (100 points)

RHCT requirement:  score of 70 or higher on RHCT components (100 points)

RHCT components score:                             100.0
RHCE components score:                             100.0

RHCE Certification:                                PASS
(To knock myself back down to reality: this was the 2nd time I took the test. The first time, after the RH300 course, I wasn't ready, and "NO PASS"ed the RHCE part.)

Hi all,
I have 2 questions. I want to know what is the cost of RHCT certification. I can see some people who are planning to do their RHCT or RHCE are already microsft that is MCSE or MCSA certified. For becoming a RHCT, does someone should also complete Microsoft certification. I have 2 years of experience in IT but I don't have any experience in linux, if I do RHCT, how good will it be for me to get a job in that field?

Thanks in advance for all the answers.

Regards,
Vibha Jha.
