Redhat Certified System Administrator (EX200) Sample Practice Questions

Getting certified in Redhat, is not an easy task. This is a complete practical exam and you have to solve maximum questions to achieve better score. To become a RHCSA professional, you have to achieve a minimum of 70% in the examination which means that at least 210 marks out of the total of 300. EX200 is a 2 hours and 30 minutes long practical examination.

Here we consolidated few sample questions to practice this exam. In this guide we provide you only sample questions but in our upcoming article you will get resolutions for these questions. So let’s get started.

Que:1- create a new 100MB Physical partition mounted under /cluster.

(Note because partition sizes are seldom exactly what is specified when they are created, any thing within the range of 70MB to 120MB is acceptable.)

Que:2- create a new 150MB swap partition and filesystem.

(Note because partition sizes are seldom exactly what is specified when they are created, any thing within the range of 130MB to 170MB is acceptable.)

Que:3- Create the following user, groups, and group memberships:

  • A group named sysgrp
  • A user ravi who belongs to sysgrp as a secondary group
