October 26th, 2012, 08:24 AM
Hello All,

Greetings of the day.

I am new to Ubuntu and playing around. But in fact i want to become an RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) so just curious to know if i can Run/do practice on Ubuntu (All of RHEL command will go through ? ).

Please let me know if its possible so that i can continue.

Thanks and Regards

Not really. You'd better go with CentOS or Scientific Linux.

There are many significant differences between administration of a Ubuntu and a Red hat box .You would be better off installing Centos as suggested above.
or even fedora which is used as test bed for red hat.

I'll just save you a little Googling. CentOS is literally the source code of RHEL, with some new art, a couple of different packages by default, and a different name. Perfectly legal. Everything you can do on RHEL you can do on CentOS, as far as I know.

However, that's no reason not to use Ubuntu on your desktop when you're not learning Red Hat :-)
