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
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.
