About this Course
The RHCSA Rapid Track Course (RH199) is designed for experienced Linux® system administrators who want to expand their technical skills and become accredited with the Red Hat® Certified System Administration (RHCSA) certification. To successfully navigate this course, students must already have solid experience with the Linux command line—including the necessary skills to execute common commands, such as cp, grep, sort, mkdir, tar, mkfs, ssh, and yum—and be familiar with accessing man pages for help. At the completion of the course, students will be adequately prepared to take the RHCSA exam (not included).
During the course, students will cover the following:
- Installation, configuration, and management of local storage
- Deployment and maintenance of network services
- Network services: virtual network computing (VNC), secure shell (SSH), file transfer protocol (FTP), and web
- Securing files with access control lists (ACLs)
- Securing network services with firewall and SELinux
- Managing virtual machines with Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology
- Automating installation of Linux using Kickstart
