It’s been about a week since my last post. I was able to finish up the first review of the RHCE material with Red Hat’s training material. I was slowed down however due to taking care of things at home, plus just extra busy days at work. The good news is, I had some extra time I needed to take before my PTO expired so I am taking it now. I’ll have all next week to do some resting, as well as finish my studies for my RHCE. At the end of next week, I will be scheduling my exam.
The last bit of information in the training was on Bash shell scripting and shell variables. Nothing too difficult, just things that require use and practice and you will have no problems with it. Bash scripting is obviously good for automating various system administrative tasks, so it’s good to know this.
This is just a short update though, and not really going over too much detail over the last bit of information covered at this time. That will be saved in my second pass where I focus more on lab examples and reviewing the material and objectives over the next week.
My plan for next week is to do two posts, one mid-week, the second at the end of my training for the RHCE. The exam will be scheduled for sometime that following week, or as soon as a spot is open for a Kiosk type exam.
So the next update should be posted on Wednesday to update on my final study week. Most of it will just be practicing doing the various objectives for the RHCE and making sure I can either recall how to do it all from memory or know where I can find examples of the commands in man pages so I can accomplish the tasks quickly.
