rhce_logoI’m busy with the training and certification for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Many things changed in the new release of Red Hat Linux. IPtables is replaced by Firewalld, UPstart is replaced by systemd and the ext4 file-system by xfs. The problem: good documentation isn’t available in books. However, online there are tons of documentation. One of my favorites: certdepot.net.

This website doesn’t only include documentation but also daily lab-exercises that are mandatory to pass the RHCSA or RHCE exams since these are hands on instead of multiple choice questions. Sorry braindump fellows out there. These will not help you. Hands on experience is mandatory in order to separate the wheat from the chaff. Without this, you won’t pass the exams.

My RHCSA exam is planned for August. RHCE will follow later. There were no options to take the exam earlier in the Netherlands due to the holiday season.

Update: another website to help you: Tecmint.com.
Update: Passed RHCSA on 12/aug/2016. Next: RHCE (but time…).
