RHCSA 7 Exam Presentation

The RHCSA exam (Red Hat Certified System Administrator), also called EX200, is a performance-based exam lasting 2 hours and half, focusing on installation and server configuration on RHEL 7 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7).

You can take the exam in a classroom setting monitored by a proctor or in a Individual Exam Session (IES) remotely monitored. A FAQ about IES is available on the Red Hat website.

Red Hat provides a FAQ about its certification program and one about the Red Hat Learning Subscription service (RHLS).

Red Hat exams are covered by a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement): anybody taking an exam can’t talk about it. For this reason, all quiz or sample exams in this website are based on exam objectives and not on real questions, even though the level of difficulty is similar.

After taking the exam and in the next three days, you will receive an email with your result (the pass mark is 210 out of 300). But you will never know what part you succeeded or what part you failed!

Concerning prices – worth mentioning that in US/Canada price 400$ goes with all taxes included, meanwhile in Europe (France at least) you pay additional 50 euros for VAT. Which comes out at 500 euros in total for exam


New price for Europe (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland): €470


I just wanted to thank u for putting all this information together! Passed my exam these days @ Zurich, Switzerland. Maybe i`ll come back for RHCE. <3 Certdepot.net


Just to say thank you to certdepot and the people who added their comments and suggestions here. It certainly helped passing my RHCSA 7 exam.


The RHCSA exam cost of £450 in the United Kingdom is without VAT, what makes it £540 in total when VAT is added.

Hi, I have asked this question before but couldn’t find it anywhere. So I am asking it again and I hope you’ll help me in this regard. I am trying to appear for the exam in my country Pakistan, but unfortunately there are no exams scheduled here from last few years. Currently, I am tired and upset finding out the right place to go because most of the companies in Asia who conduct exams/training listed on Redhat website contains outdated information about them (which means most the companies are no longer operational) There is no chance of finding the authorized… Read more »


I am new in linux world and planning for RHCSA exam. I will be thankful if anyone can suggest me good learning material for beginners to prepare for the exam of RHCSA. I am looking forward your kind reply.


I just pass my exam thanks for the help


Congrats. I just failed mine yesterday unfortunately. Odd thing is, I felt more comfortable submitting the exam than I did going in. Even had time to double check everything. Just a bit shocking because I really don’t know where to go from here since they do not tell you what areas you failed in.


Hi Cert-depot,
For both the attempts the virtual window after a reboot configuring LVM and swap closed and re-appeared –but the comment was “Booting from Hard disk”

It was still remaining hang for 40 mins, I checked with the examiner–he said problem is on my side.

So far 3 times consecutively I got 0%—why?
Where could I do wrong?


It’s been more than 55 hours and still waiting for my result.
How do I contact RedHat directly?


Did you already got your results?


Can anyone help me with RHCSA autofs question, the question is:
configure autofs to automatically mount the home directory for user lisa under /dirnet when she logs into the system.
Step by step explaination would be appreciate.


First you need to install the right package
yum install -y autofs
showmount -e server.example.com /etc/auto.master.d/lisa.autofs
echo “/dirnet -rw,sync labipa.example.com:/home/lisa” > /etc/lisa.mount
mkdir /dirnet
systemctl enable autofs
systemctl start autofs
cd /dirnet



I saw a video where Sander Van Vugt said showmount -e doesn’t work for NFSv4. He said, instead, just try to mount it


Thanks a lot for putting up this site!
I’ve passed my ex200 last friday, also thanks to your help and effort!

Hello  my friends As   many of you know, I’ve  doing  a  few  videos  about  RHCSA  practice  exams  in  order to help  you in the preparation  for this  exam.  All  this  videos  are  in my youtube  channel. I did the  exam. My first  impression of the  exam  was  it  is  hard, but  after you read  all  the  instructions  you will  notice  that  is  not  that  hard,  the  key is  practice  all  the  topics  from  the  red had  website. https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training/ex200-red-hat-certified-system-administrator-rhcsa-exam After  a  few  minutes  I realized all  that  need  to do in order  to get  all  the  points. First  you need  to… Read more »


Does the EX200 exam test system have graphical.target already available?

Asking because in regards to the KVM objective, I would want to use the GUI, instead of the cli.

CertDepot, I have a question about the exam. I took the exam last Friday and as expected at the beginning I had to reset the root password, but in doing so the shell that is used to reset the password wasn’t responding correctly. I couldn’t see what I was typing and what I typed wasn’t always what was sent to the shell. I had to type commands and then type history to see what was actually sent. Then to reset the password it wouldn’t accept input directly so I had to use the command echo with passwd –stdin. After which… Read more »


Did your try to reboot, or a rebuild before your above solution?


I did redhat exam.. While rebooting it went to maintenance mode… But i did all the question then i rebooted.. It went to physical mode.. But the time got over.. So do i lose any marks for this problem

First of all, I would like to thank CertDepot as I’ve just passed my exam on Thurs. All credits goes to you !! To people out there, you may use nmtui (Network manager Text UI) and authconfig-tui (LDAP Text UI). People like me can’t remember the lengthy commands and the TUI is very helpful. In addition, you need to understand how to set the netmasks with nmtui, eg IP/24, IP/32 etc. Otherwise you may modify the if-eth0 file as usual, and reboot the server if needed. The exam questions were pretty easy, as most of them are mentioned in this… Read more »

Thank you so much for the work you put into this site. With the good advice/info from this site I managed to pass on Friday 🙂

I have created a VM based on appendix B of the Jang/Osaria book. Obviously the kickstart requirement utilizes a static IP address. And (based on the IPs utilized) the NIC is defaulted to a NAT configuration. In my test environment, yum mirrors, repos, etc. are inaccessible, because the physical system and network use a different private networking class. I have to create and implement a bridge (eg “virbr0”) for it to work. My hope is the testing kiosk is pre-configured to allow yum searches, listings and installs on the VMs. Is that indeed the case? Or, is it a requirement… Read more »
I just had a frustrating time with determining why I could not communicate between a host and a VM that was created from a kick-start file. Both were on different subnets, and I exhausted multiple attempts at ip routing and variations in subnet masks. I finally found the root cause of the problem. Think in terms of the defaults in KVM NAT networking. Typically the host utilizes a virbr0 net device with a IP and provides DHCP on the same subnet. Complicate this with VM ks.cfg requirement to be populated with a static I could ping from… Read more »
Wow. Just took the RHCSA exam. I will not elaborate, but I did not do well. I spent too much time chasing a problem that could not be resolved by normal means. It was more a challenge for RHCE testers perhaps, and/or a test in deception; not knowledge. [From a barebones new install, one would never encounter such an environment.] To be fair though, the other content tested was appropriate. I knew it well thanks to this site and other resources. But, the distraction did not leave me with sufficient time to present same. I would recommend preparing on an… Read more »

Can you confirm did you do a “Individual exam” type test?
There are bad reports of the secure kiosk or laptop method on Certdepot website.


Yes, it was at a kiosk at a testing center, cameras et al. Not by website.


Can anyone tell me which RHEL Version is used as a testing platform? It will be a great help …

Thanks …


What about the price in india?


I passed the RHCSA 🙂 thanks guys for the very good references to the topics
