UNIX/LINUX Core Administration Skills
(UCORE, 5 days)


This SETC certified course is designed for advance users who are moving to Unix or Linux administration. Students will get a chance to install their own servers, as well as configure the filesystems, daemons, users, groups, backup and networking. Since each student has their own sandboxed server, they will be exposed to the inner working of the operating system, allowing them to understand how memory, processes and daemons are managed by the operating system.
