RHCA Journey – Day 1

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Today was the first day of my RHCA goal.  I have three different training options.  I like having more than one, just to help round things off.  Sometimes I end up getting a better sense of something from another source, so having a few options just allows me to learn the material better.  However it’s less of an issue with Red Hat exams as the end result on the exams is what counts, how you get there is up to you.

To study I’m using the following:

Today was fairly light though, and I just used the Red Hat Learning Subscription and went through the first two chapters.  Which focused on Systemctl, the boot process, resetting the root password.  The second chapter went into network manager, and creating connections and assigning ipv4 and ipv6 address information.

In all, it was a fairly basic material that I’ve dealt with before.  The good news was I recalled all the nmcli commands from memory, even though many times I tend to use nmtui when configuring interfaces (not sure why, as it’s just as easy with nmcli).

The labs went well too, and I was able to pass them all on the first round and didn’t require looking anything up.

Tomorrow will be more training, need to do at least 2 to 3 chapters a day to stay on track.  Be sure to come back tomorrow to see more progress.
