This hands-on 4-day Linux System Administration course teaches attendees how to administer, configure and upgrade Linux systems running one of the three major Linux distribution families (Red Hat, SUSE, Debian/Ubuntu). Focused on enterprise environments, it provides Linux system administrators with all the ools and concepts needed to efficiently build and manage a production Linux infrastructure. This course presents state-of-the-art techniques used in the industry and applies them in the context of practical labs.


This course is intended for System administrators and users who already have at least some basic exposure to Linux or another UNIX-based operating system constitute the target audience for this class. Anyone who is looking to acquire practical knowledge in the field of system administration in enterprise environments will save significant time by attending this course. It should also be considered a necessary step to be taken by anyone considering more advanced classes in our System Administration curriculum track. The concepts covered provide important building blocks for anyone looking to attend more advanced classes, in particular LFS311: Linux Network Management.

  • Perform essential Linux commands such as installation, searches and manipulating files.
  • Operate running Linux systems by managing the boot process, scheduling jobs, updating the system, monitoring system performance and managing security.
  • Manage users and groups by adding/deleting/modifying, configuring LDAP and PAM, modifying user processes and resources.
  • Ensure network performance via configuration, monitoring, tunnelling and routing of traffic.
