Thanks for the info, BTW, I also agree that experience counts for much more
than the passing of a specific exam, sat down answering some questions. The
point was made above though, with two equally experienced candidates, one
with the relevant certification and one without, which one would you take?
Also, do you think the cert would be more valuable if it included (like
Redhat does I've been told), a practical hands-on session where the
candidate has to a) install the system to some defined specs, b) load and
configure additional services and c) troubleshoot some problems to get the
system working again?
Thanks for your input.
