So, besides lag have others been running into major issues with the VCAP-DTA environment?
I took the exam yesterday and unfortunately ran into a major technical issue about 60% of the way into the exam. This was something in the environment not attached to any task and definitely not on the blueprint. After encountering this issue, I simply didn't have the access to complete several items after that or go back work on others. This wasn't the Pearson side either. After getting home, I looked up the error message online and it appears to be a bug/issue inherent to the environment itself. That leads me to wonder if others have been running into this and whether I'll get the same thing if I retake the exam.
It was a specific bug on the vSphere side. After the exam, I looked it up online and it appears to be related to how the environment was setup.
If allowed, I can post details here or just PM you directly.
I didn't raise a ticket with Pearson, but did email the VMware certification team(have an open SR #). I don't think this was a Pearson issue since wasn't with the actually connection to and presentation of the VMware session. I didn't even realize we could get VMware support on the phone during the exam or even the full extent of issue until I looked it up later online.
Anyway, the response from the VMware cert team was still a little strange since they replied asking for the specific URL of the environment used. I gave them the vCenter hostname, but couldn't recall any other connection details since we can't really write down and take information out the exam room. Shouldn't my Candidate ID, registration#, date, site id, and validation # be enough to determine all that anyway?
Also, this wasn't at VMworld. I took the exam at a local testing center here in Tokyo.
Well, appreciate the help. Is there anything else you think I should do at this point?
