System administration topics include

  • managing users, groups, and permissions
  • monitoring and managing storage and file systems
  • understanding the Filesystem Hierarchical Standard
  • 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
  • writing shell scripts
  • command-line essentials


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.
