NCE-ES Certification

A couple of weeks ago I blogged that Novell released the exam for NCE-ES certification.
So Yesterday I took the exam. And passed!!!!!
It was a practical exam like CLP9 and 10. As a European I got 210 minutes to complete the exam, but it took me
about 40 minutes to complete.
Anybody who is interested in more information about the exam can contact me.

      As you may know, the NCE-ES exam is a practical exam.
      If you do the exam you will get two virtual servers, where on you have to perform
      4 tasks. The exercises in the workbook of the N3090 are simtilar to the one in the exam.
      But is not a step bij step test. for example you may get a question that ask you to create a Netstorage drive. If Netstorage isn’t installed you have to figure out for your self how to install and configure.
      If you want more information leave a reply or send me a email.

      Hi, I think the N3089 is crucial for the N3090 if you want to troubleshoot. For you NCE-ES exam you must know a
      few thinks about Linux. You can get a question about scripting. So you need to know your command and how Linux works.
      Currently I’m teaching the N3090 and I have one student who has a lack of Linux experience. Today we covered XEN and the first
      migration part. He can finish the exercises but must later than his fellow students.

      If you have 1226 servers a good tool to manage the servers is crucial.
      I don’t have any practical experience with ZLM. So if this is the rights tool for you I cannot tell.
      What do you want to accomplish with the tool?
