Linux for UNIX Administrators

Course Code: GL615
Length: 5 days

Schedule and Registration

Course Description

The GL615 is an accelerated course combining the topics in the GL250 "Enterprise Linux Systems Administration", and the GL275 "Enterprise Linux Networking Services".


Students should already be experienced Unix administrators. Fundamentals such as the Unix command line and how to edit files will not be covered in class. A good understanding of network concepts, the TCP/IP protocol suite, and basic Unix security is also assumed. The accelerated pace of this class makes it more difficult for unprepared students to keep up.

Less experienced students are encouraged to instead take the GL120 "Linux Fundamentals", GL250 "Enterprise Linux Systems Administration" or GL275 "Enterprise Linux Networking Services".
