Last week I spend the whole week in the Red Hat training center here in Stuttgart, participating in the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) fast track course and exam. The RHCSA is probably still very unknown and better known under its previous name "RHCT". RHCSA runs on RHEL 6.
The fast track training consists of some more basic aspects of system administration like installing and enabling services, setting up networking in the first half and some more advanced topics like ACLs, SELinux, LVM (with encryption and snapshots) in the second part. The course material works with brand new RHEL 6 stuff and also the exam is on RHEL 6. Top notch!
Friday was exam time. As I am not allowed to talk about this only so far: this is a real-world get things done kind of exam and not some multiple choice test.
And then I was waiting for exam results - and today I got it: I passed and I am now a RHCSA! :-)))
Cert number is 100-003-383
