Ex236

I had my exam on Friday.
Quite interesting topic but very intense exam - only 2 hours to complete all the tasks.

The only book I used was the "Administration guide" from RedHat site.

The testing environment:
8 KVM VMs with 4 bricks each based on Centos 6.6 with GlusterFS 3.7 from Storage for your Cloud. — Gluster (1CPU, 1GB RAM, each brick - 1GB of HDD - vdb, vdc...)
But I strongly recommend an official version from RedHat (evaluation is available from the sales representative)

I'm still waiting for my results.

EDIT: Status -passed :) RHCA Level 2 achieved.

    Congratulations! What are you planning to do next ?

    I have the 236 in mind but they are just too expensive to do here. 900USD per exam. I might do them when I go home for a visit.

    Thanks guys.
    @chanakyajupudi - I should pass EX442 :) to complete the "canonical path" of RHCA :)

    Cool!

    Best of luck with that. I believe it is not the easiest of exams unless you have tuning experience.

    I know that this is the most difficult exam on the path but for me "failure is not an option" :)
    If I want to pass JNCIE-SEC I have to try with the easier exams first :)

    Employer sponsored? I have trouble justifying taking exams past the RHCE. I'll study the material, but the cost of the test is so high I don't know if it returns dividends.

    Sponsored by me :) I think that this is a good investment and I hope that I can get a job with a salary sufficient to cover this expenses in one or two months.
    The other topic is the availability of materials but the Internet is so wide and deep ...

    hey brombulec

    I'm actually thinking of smashing through EX236 before EX210. I know the NDA not to talk about it (RHCE,RHCVA here) but I find it hard to get a test version from RH. If I follow your path what are the chances of them throwing a curve ball at me ? any tricky questions or is it fairly straight forward

    Cheers
