Red Hat System Administration II

Course Description


This course relates to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and is specifically designed for students who have completed Red Hat System Administration I course (RH124). The Red Hat System Administration II course (RH134) focuses on the key tasks needed to become a full time Linux administrator. This course goes deeper into enterprise Linux administration including file systems and partitioning, logical volumes, SELinux, firewalling, and troubleshooting.  


This course is singularly designed for students who have completed Red Hat System Administration I course (RH-124). The organization of topics is such that it is not appropriate for student to use RH-134 as a curriculum entry point.
