This course follows from COMP 2766 and is designed for students who already have a solid foundation in command line Linux. Participants start by customizing and fine tuning an automated CentOS distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Students then learn to perform more advanced Linux administrative tasks. Through hands-on exercises and labs, students will monitor the system, troubleshoot common problems, secure the system, and maintain the entire system. Topics include: Apache, OpenSSH, DHCP, FACLs, scripting, RPM/YUM, iptables, and basic troubleshooting for Linux Administrators. Students will configure a web server, schedule tasks, install and maintain software, and troubleshoot common problems encountered by Linux system administrators. Additional topics include how to configure and analyze logs, impose filesystem quotas, implement kernel level firewalling, and configure filesystem access control lists. This course is an elective in the Applied Network Administration and Design (ANAD) Associate Certificate and the CST/PTS Diploma. COMP 2766 and COMP 2767 together are equivalent to ACIT 2420 in the CIT Diploma. Upon completion of this course, successful participants will be aware of best practices in Linux Administration. Note: This course is offered in the April term.
