    Red Hat Linux Administration II – Installation, Configuration, Software and Troubleshooting

    Course ID


    Course Description

    Students will experience added understanding of configuration issues of disks, boot up services, software, and network and secure connections to network services. This class builds concepts and techniques required to administrate a Red Hat Enterprise Linux and or any other Linux version host but it does assume all essential Linux utilities and command line concepts are understood and the student has experience using them recently. This course is applicable to any version of Linux and is complaint to the Red Hat SA2 course, RHEL 6.3 and prepares students for the RHCE exam.


    LAN fundamentals or equivalent; Internet understanding and working with TCP/IP or equivalent. 1+ months of solid hands on experience managing any other type of system is also ideal.


    Anyone wanting to get a clear understanding of administering Red Hat Enterprise Linux (or any Linux based) workstations in a local area network. Anyone wanting to understand and be able to install or update software, manage and backup file space, configure the network connection, connect to network resources, manage network services at boot up and thereafter, troubleshoot boot up, administrate advanced permissions SUID and SGID, create shared group directories and administrate printers and users, configure advanced file system services like RAID and LVM
