  • Navigation of the GNOME 3 interface 
  • Editing text files from the command line with vim or other available programs 
  • Finding information in man pages and info nodes
  • The concept of file permissions 
  • Interactive installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
  • Per-user 'at' and 'cron' jobs 
  • Use of archival utilities such as 'tar', 'zip', and compression utilities 
  • Absolute and relative paths 
  • Finding files with 'find' and 'locate'

Course Description:

This course builds on a student's existing understanding of command-line based Linux system administration. Students should be able to execute common commands using the shell, work with common command options, and access man pages for help. Students lacking this knowledge are strongly encouraged to take Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) and II (RH134) instead.

Course Objectives: 

  • Managing users and groups, files, and file permissions 
  • Updating software packages with yum 
  • Managing and troubleshooting systemd services during the boot process 
  • Network configuration and basic troubleshooting 
  • Managing local storage and creating and using file systems 
  • Firewall management with firewalld 
  • Managing kernel-based virtual machines (KVMs) 
  • Automating installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux using Kickstart

Intended Audience: 

  • Students for this class should have 1-3 years of full time Linux administration experience
