Course Description

This course is for individuals who have completed Red Hat System Administration I (RH124). It focuses on the key tasks needed to become a full-time administrator of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. You will examine enterprise Linux administration including file systems and partitioning, logical volumes, SELinux, firewalling, and troubleshooting. Attending both Red Hat® System Administration I (RH124) and Red Hat®System Administration II (RH134) can help you in your preparation for the Red Hat Certified System Administrator Exam (EX200). The RHCSA exam is included in this course.

Note: IT Dojo and Red Hat do not guarantee that anyone who takes one or all of the courses in the Red Hat certification program will pass a Red Hat exam. On-the-job experience, in combination with high-quality training, is the best way to build skills and prepare for a Red Hat exam. The exam itself is a hands-on learning experience, and many of those who do not pass on the first try come away with knowledge of what they need to work on to pass the exam on a re-take.

What You’ll Learn

  • Installation using Kickstart
  • Managing filesystems and logical volumes
  • Managing scheduled jobs
  • Accessing network filesystems
