RHCE Done!!

After my failed attempt the first time it feels great to pass the RHCE. I have been nervous since I didn't get my results until the morning. Finished the exam with about 40 min left to spare, and double checked everything. Thanks for the tips Unixguy, log32 and others here.

Just glad to be done with it, now time to relax and take a break from studying :)

    Huge congrats to you, I am starting my grinding road to get where you are. I'm just became a Unix/Linux admin not too long and while I love it, it is a huge learning curve. Congrats to you.

    I just flushed the rules and save the iptables and rebooted machine in the beginning. I have not disabled iptables nor done chkconfig iptables off during the exam. I couldn't figure out where I was wrong.

    I have taken RHCE exam and I am sure that I have completed every question 100% correct but I got score of 104 out of 300. Not even close to 200 so don't know what happened. I was practicing the RHCE for months now also went to training camp. I have rebooted machine several times and also double checked every question from Virtual Machine as well as Base machine. Everything was working as should be without any issue so don't understand why I got only 104 not even close to 200. I was expecting 275 or above but didn't even get to half way. I don't understand how RedHat test my result. what would be the key points when they check exam results? Any help or guidance would be appreciated. I have also gone through books and online forums but couldn't find anything. I am gonna take test again but looks like outcome will be the same because I don't know where/why RedHat is failing me. I have not turned off firewall/Iptables nor disabled it.

    @coolmiku

    Well, why didn't you turned off the firewall or disabled it?
    Red Hat just uses a series of scripts that just verifies your configuration and performs advanced testing on connectivity to your services
    If a firewall was blocking their requests, then this was the problem

    Maybe next time you could verify the netfilter rules *after* a restart

    Best of luck!

    Congrats on the pass, I am glad one more member of this forum passed RHCE. This year hopefully I'll have a stab at it myself. How did it feel last few weeks before the exam, how did you feel while taking the exam and how do you feel now that you passed it?
    Awesome achievement, I am glad you did it.
