        I took the exam LFCE not RHCE :)

        anyway I’ve also took RHCE before and it was very difficult for my experience you need to config Server and Client and i’ve failed. unlike in LFCE you are focus on the server side. Most of the topics for LFCE came out especially in httpd, smtp and iptables you need to master them all.

    Part 10: How To Setup an Iptables Firewall to Enable Remote Access to Services in Linux

    Seems like part 10 heading should be Routing packets statically & dynamically ; isn’t it ?

    Please tell – are all necessary knowledge domains covered to pass exam?

    hello Gabriel,

    I am not a seasoned Linux Admin but am using it mostly as application admin (like running Hadoop, MongoDB etc). I followed your notes for LFCS and passed the exam now I want to do the same for LFCE. Any special recommendation apart from your notes
    LFCE seems task oriented, like Configure a service and move on to new service. Do i need to practice the steps until i can repeat without any external assiatnce? or will there be any special troubleshooting questions?

    I know its generic question but wondering if u can help here as I don’t feel Linuxfoundation did a good job assembling all the necessary information about exam :(

    So… what if you use centos 7 like i do? does that mean that we’re stlil using sysvinit in the exam?

  9. @dtsf,
    As of today, systemd is not included in the Linux Foundation certification exams. I decided to talk a little about systemd (and also upstart, even though that is not required in the exams either) just in case those topics make it to the required domain and competencies (I don’t think upstart will make it, but systemd surely will).

  10. dtsf says:

    Hi, I see you mention systemd. Is there any of the three distros available to do the exam which already features systemd? I thought it’s only for Centos 7 and above?

Got something to say? Join the discussion.
