RH135 - Red Hat System Administration II with RHCSA Exam

Skills covered:

Overview

This course relates to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and is specifically designed for students who have completed Red Hat System Administration I (RH124). Red Hat System Administration II (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. Attending both Red Hat System Administration I and Red Hat System Administration II can help you in your preparation for the Red Hat Certified System Administrator Exam (EX200). Please note that day 5 is for the EX200 exam which needs to be booked through the Red Hat Exam Kiosk.

Objectives

Students attending the RH135 RHEL 7 course will leave with knowledge on the following areas:

  • Installation using Kickstart
  • Managing filesystems and logical volumes
  • Managing scheduled jobs
  • Accessing network filesystems
  • Managing SELinux
  • Controlling firewalling
  • Troubleshooting

Audience

This course is singularly designed for students who have completed Red Hat System Administration I (RH124). The organisation of topics is such that it is not appropriate for student to use RH134 as a curriculum entry point.

Students who have not taken a previous Red Hat course are encouraged to take either System Administration I if they are new to Linux, or the RHCSA Fast Track course (RH200) if they are experienced with enterprise Linux administration.
