Linux Systems Administration

Bryan C. Andregg, Red Hat Software

Who should attend: This tutorial is directed at system administrators who are planning to implement a Linux solution in a production environment. You should be familiar with the basics of systems administration in a UNIX/Linux environment: user level commands, administration commands, and TCP/IP networking. The novice system administrator and the Guru should both leave the tutorial having learned something.

From a single server to a network of workstations, the Linux environment can be daunting for administrators knowledgeable in other platforms. Starting with a single server and finishing with a multi-server 1000+ user environment, case studies will provide practical information for using Linux in the real world.

The following areas will be covered with a special emphasis on security:

  • Installation Features
  • Disk Partitioning and RAID
  • Networking
  • User Accounts
  • Services
  • NFS and NIS
  • High Availability Environments
  • The Workplace
  • Up and Coming in the Linux World (CODA, LVM, etc.)
At the completion of the course, attendees should feel confident in their ability to setup and maintain a secure and useful Linux network. The tutorial will be conducted in an open manner that allows for question and answer interruption.
