    Hi Chanakya, Sorry for posting to this old thread. I need some details on the Openstack - EX210 exam. Does the current version of exam is towards Openstack 5.0 or 6.0. I have been offered training from Redhat under 6.0 but in site en-rhtr-ex210v5-exam-objectives-INC0240940.pdf file it is given as 5.0. Am little confusd about this.

    My current role is towards monitoring & automation on cloud services and I have medium linux expertise (no certifications as now). Do you think I can directly take RH OpenStack certification or do I have to do any RHCSA certification before this? Also is this environment (Openstack) be replicable in a laptop or decent desktop running Windows/Ubuntu (RAM >= 8 GB) so that I can practise more before taking exam? pls provide your inputs

    I am not sure what the current version of the exam is being held in. That is something you would have to ask the partner where you are attending the exam or RH directly if attending a Kiosk exam.

    You can install OpenStack on a Virtual Machine / Physical box of your liking. You however would be better off also having a Physical box where you will install a Hypervisor and create the OpenStack resources on.

    There is no need for a separate physical box. You can use nested virtualization if you have enough resources. Just add kvm-intel.nested=1 as an additional parameter in grub and you're good to go.
    For more information look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_enable_nested_virtualization_in_KVM

    I used this for my OpenStack certification home lab and everything worked fine.

    Would recommend you allocate 2 machines. Ideally physical but in a pinch a VM would do. Most of the time you will be only using one machine. The second one would be an additional compute node.

    Hi all!!! I've set up an RH Openstack Lab (4 VM: 1 Controller, 1 Network, 2 Compute) and I'm going to do the exam (RH210) very soon. Some suggestions about it? I'm using "OpenStack Essentials" by Dan Radez to train myself!

    OpenStack is used where it makes more sense to include commodity hardware and not invest in costly licensing for software (AWS, VMware, etc). However, it shines when you have a physical servers use each component. A use case that we had at the position I just left was using OpenStack as a secure hosted desktop environment to allow the use of PII without actually creating a leakage onto our corporate network (at the end of the day the VMs would be destroyed and rebuilt when users logged back in).
