The first part (System Administration I) provides an introduction to fundamental end-user and system administration skills in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Participants learn to properly manage a Linux workstation or server, including installation and configuration of local components and services as well as connections to existing network services. This course builds on students' existing technical knowledge by focusing on GUI-based tools, while still covering key command line concepts. The second part (System Administration II) builds on the foundation of command line skills learned in System Administration I. This course is for full-time enterprise Linux system administrators who are also interested in becoming accredited with the RHCSA certification. Students will learn to administer and troubleshoot file systems and partitioning, logical volume management, access control, package management. This course does not carry a Grade Point Value (GPV), but it will count towards fulfilling the credit requirements of the degree.
