About this Course

For many years, Linux has dominated the server install base in the business world—and it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future, especially as we transition to the Cloud. This courseware builds on your existing experience with systems operations and administration to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to configure, manage, operate, and troubleshoot a Linux environment by using security best practices, scripting, and automation computing models. The popularity of Linux has led to a greater need for information technology (IT) professionals who can manage servers that run some form of the Linux kernel and the associated GNU tools that make a Linux distribution.
What you will learn:
  • Perform basic Linux tasks.
  • Manage users and groups.
  • Manage permissions and ownership.
  • Manage storage.
  • Manage files and directories.
  • Manage kernel modules.

  • Manage networking.
  • Manage packages and software.
  • Secure Linux systems.
  • Write and execute Bash shell scripts.
  • Automate tasks.
  • Plan and perform a Linux installation.
This course is designed for IT professionals whose primary job responsibility is the management of servers and other devices running the Linux operating system. A typical student in this course should have at least nine months of hands-on Linux experience and at least one and a half years of IT experience in other computing environments. The target student should wish to expand their skill set to support their career in Linux system administration and operation.  This course is also designed for students who are seeking the CompTIA Linux+ certification and who want to prepare for Exam XK0-004.
