The New and Improved Way to Learn Linux System Administration Essentials

November 21, 2022November 22nd, 2022Announcements

As of November 14, 2022, the original Essentials of Linux System Administration (LFS201) course has been updated and is now available as Linux System Administration Essentials (LFS207)

Linux is arguably the most important software in the world, running 99% of supercomputers, 82% of smartphones, 90% of cloud workloads, and most of the internet. This makes Linux administration one of the most in demand technical skills. 

The Linux System Administration Essentials course will prepare you to administer, configure, upgrade and troubleshoot Linux systems, concentrating on the Debian/Ubuntu and Red Hat/Centos families. It is designed to work with a wide range of Linux distributions, so you will be able to apply these concepts regardless of your distribution. Filesystems, networking and working with the Linux kernel are all explored. It also teaches additional skills such as the use of the Git open source distributed version control system and the use of virtualization and containers. 

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Perform essential Linux system administration tasks including adding, removing and configuring users, groups, and accounts.
  • Maintaining system software using the available packaging systems, rpm and apt.
  • Configuring networking and kernel interactions
  • Working with files and filesystems, partitioning disks, formatting and checking and repairing filesystems
  • Work with Git and perform essential collaborative tasks
  • Get a basic knowledge of virtualization and containerization

Linux System Administration Essentials is a companion course for the Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator (LFCS) exam. To that end the LFCS exam will also be updated in February 2023 as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that anyone holding this credential can proficiently install, configure, and operate Linux-based systems, whether on-premises or cloud-based.
