NHCU 8365: RHCSA Red Hat System Administrator Rapid Track Course (RH199)

Program Overview

On completion of course materials, students should be prepared to take the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam. Note: This course builds on a student's existing understanding of command-line based Linux system administration. Students should be able to execute common commands using the shell, work with common command options, and access man pages for help. Students lacking this knowledge are strongly encouraged to take Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) and II (RH134) instead. Students for this class should have 1-3 years of full time Linux administration experience.

  • The concept of file permissions
  • Interactive installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
  • Per-user 'at' and 'cron' jobs
  • Use of archival utilities such as 'tar', 'zip', and compression utilities
  • Absolute and relative paths - Finding files with 'find' and 'locate'
  • The bash shell, including job control (&, fg, bg, jobs), shell expansion (command, tilde, globbing, brace, protection from expansion), I/O redirection, and pipes

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Managing users and groups, files, and file permissions

  • Updating software packages with yum

  • Managing and troubleshooting system services during the boot process
