You can take various certification exams while at CEC, so I thought I would put myself on the line and take the “Sun Certified System Administrator for Solaris 10” exam. You get 1 hour 30 minutes to answer 59 questions. I took 49 minutes and scored 81% which was slightly disappointing if not really that surprising. I some how doubt I scored well about printing or for that matter the install sections.
One bit I just don't understand why they ask the questions was around using rsh and for that matter doing remote dumps, where there was at least one ambiguous question;
If you want to do a remote dump which file do you edit had both: /etc/hosts.equiv and /.rhosts well I would choose $HOME/.rhosts as I would never use rsh in anyform to allow remote root access but that was not an option.
Overall I thought the test was good and therefore the certification is a good thing to have. It could be better though.suncec2007
