Enterprise Linux System Administration


This in-depth 5 day class explores installation, configuration and maintenance of Linux systems. The course focuses on issues universal to every workstation and server. Like all of our courses, the course material is designed to provide extensive hands-on experience. Topics include: installation and configuration; the boot process; user and group administration; filesystem administration, including quotas, FACLs,  RAID and LVM; task automation; client networking; SELinux; software management; log files; troubleshooting; and more.


Students should already be comfortable working in a Linux or Unix environment. Fundamentals such as the Linux filesystem, process management, and how to edit files will not be covered in class. An understanding of network concepts, and the TCP/IP protocol suite is helpful. These skills are taught in the “Linux Fundamentals”  course.
