This accelerated fast track course concentrates on the popular Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution, and covers subjects ranging from initial installation of Linux to day-to-day administrative tasks such as management of user accounts and disk space. Also covered is setup and maintenance of many of the most popular network services available for Linux, including servers for DNS, SMB, e-mail servers, FTP, web, and caching proxy. Special attention is paid to the concepts needed to implement these services securely, and to the trouble-shooting skills which will be necessary for real-world administration of network and system services.
Individuals wishing to take this class should already have a solid grounding in UNIX administration concepts. Fundamentals such as an understanding of the Linux filesystem, process management, and the ability to manipulate and edit files is considered a must and will not be covered in class. An understanding of network concepts and the TCP/IP protocol suite is helpful.
