General Info:

System administration topics include

  • managing users, groups, and permissions
  • monitoring and managing storage and file systems
  • understanding the Filesystem Hierarchical Standard as a global namespace
  • a tour of the Linux directory tree, with emphasis on commands
  • monitoring and managing processes
  • installing and configuring server software
  • configuring and updating XOrg X11 GUI systems
  • installing and configuring devices, firmware, and modules
  • kernel tuning
  • network configuration
  • introduction to compiling a C program and using make, using chkrootkit.c as the example
  • writing shell scripts
  • command-line essentials

The principles are the same across all GNU/Linux distributions, but some distributions share common configuration approaches. The examples in these classes will generally reference both the Debian and the Red Hat approaches.

Most of the above topics require a sequence of two or more classes for completion. Such class sequences are progressive, and success requires attendance for all classes in the sequence.

Each topic stands alone; there are no dependencies among them. The assumption is that attendees are at least familiar with command-line shells.

Because command-line skills are generally required, the command-line essentials class (a one-class introduction) will be repeated.
