RHEL7 Linux System Administration II

Course Code



5 Days

Familiarity with Linux commands, directory structure, and the text editor. The student is expected to have experience with RPM, the Red Hat Package Manager, for the purposes of installing or updating applications. In addition, they should know the concepts behind mounting filesystems and the basics of running applications remotely using the X Window System. (These prerequisites can be met by completing the Introduction to Linux and Linux System Administration I courses.)

The largest value is obtained when the student has been working as a novice system administrator for approximately 4 to 8 weeks.
This course provides participants with knowledge needed to administer a Linux system in a network environment. This includes all aspects: network configuration, troubleshooting and diagnostics, remote application usage, and various server applications.

Prospective system administrators who are already familiar with the Linux operating system, but desire more detailed and specialized information as listed below.
