Linux for Administrators

Linux for Administrators

Bascom Bridge’s Introduction to Linux Administration course teaches students how to install, configure, maintain, and secure Linux systems.

 

LINUX ADMINISTRATION TRAINING OBJECTIVES

All students will:

  • Install and configure Linux
  • Understand the boot process
  • Master user and group administration
  • Work with filesystem administration, including quotas, FACLs, RAID and LVM
  • Automate tasks
  • Master client networking
  • Work with SELinux
  • Manage software and log files
  • Troubleshoot Linux

LINUX ADMINISTRATION TRAINING PREREQUISITES

Students should be comfortable working in a Linux or UNIX environment. An understanding of network concepts and the TCP/IP protocol suite is helpful.

LINUX ADMINISTRATION TRAINING MATERIALS

All attendees receive comprehensive courseware and a related textbook.

SOFTWARE NEEDED FOR EACH PC:

  • Windows, Mac, or Linux PCs with at least 4 GB RAM
  • Accelebrate can provide a VirtualBox or VMware environment with all software needed for the class
    • This class can be taught using the Linux distribution of your choice
  • Please contact us for further setup details
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
