Course Description: This hands on Linux administration course teaches students how to install, configure and maintain a Linux system in a networked environment. Students will not only learn to perform basic administrative tasks such as adding and managing users, creating and maintaining file systems, developing and implementing a security policy, and performing software installation and package management, but will also learn to perform Linux network-related tasks, including installing and supporting SSH, NFS, Samba, DNS, DHCP, and the Apache Web server. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.
The course includes comprehensive hands on practice installing and configuring a CentOS 6 / Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 system, although much of the course content also applies to SuSE, Ubuntu, Oracle and other Linux implementations. Labs include adding and deleting users, backing up and restoring the system, adding/deleting software, automating the scheduling of tasks, creating file systems, managing remote access, and installing and tuning Samba and Apache, as well as working with modern system logging utilities such as rsyslog. Class participants will also discuss common security issues, and be introduced to several tools, such as PAM modules, that can help secure the operating environment. Upon completion of this course, students will be prepared to competently maintain a Linux system in a networked business environment.
Course Prerequisites: Experience with common UNIX/Linux user-level commands, such as for moving, copying and editing files. Attendance at HOTT's UNIX/Linux Fundamentals course provides a solid foundation.

The instructor has extensive knowledge of Linux and course materials and presented it very well. I have recommended this Linux course to a colleague who is planning to take this course in the near future. I have attended many training courses and feel this was the best course I have taken.

The instructor was very knowledgeable of the content and would make sure that the content was understood before moving onto the next subject. I like the fact that HOTT keeps the class sizes small. I will definitely look to HOTT for future training.
