PRIVATE GROUP FEE:
$ Based upon a class size of six students.
Scheduling can be adjusted to employee work hours and incorporate client assignments.
SMALL CLASS SIZE:
There is a surcharge associated with training two or fewer students.
CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES:
Install a prototypical minimally configured Linux server.
Customize the Linux installation for either a web or database server.
Modify the system start-up scripts to initiate the daemons provided by the instructor.
Use cron to schedule daily maintenance procedures.
Working with the Kernel
Optimize the Linux system by modifying the kernel configuration and recompiling the kernel.
Ascertain that the: 1- kernel has been successfully installed. 2- kernel is performing efficiciently.
NFS: Network File System
Setup and configure the NFS Server for the capability to be accessed by a designated group of users.
Configure Samba; it can be tested by accessing the disk using a MS Windows client.
Transfer files between the MS Windows and Linux systems.
Have the network drivers loaded automatically.
The network drivers are placed into the /etc/modprobe.conf file that the modprobe application can load the drivers into the kernel as required; the network drivers are normally loaded by starting the network service.
Edit the parameters to adjustment the configuration files for each device.
Change the initialization scripts for all of the networking devices located in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory.
Modify the PAM policy file located in /etc/pam.conf; it contains all the PAM policies for a system.
A Linux system can have an alternate configuration mechanism.
A firewall script can be designed to separate and secure the private network (eth1) from the Internet traffic (ppp0); while simultaneously providing flexibility for the internal network. Code and test a firewall script.
Implementing Mail Services
The configuration files for sendmail need to be backed up before any changes are made to them.
Configure sendmail to permit internal e-mail; do not allow external e-mails.
Allow incoming e-mails to be redirected to other local accounts.
Apache Web Server
Start the Apache web server; ensure that the server is working properly by running a simple command.
Given a new website provided by the instructor, setup a virtual home page.
Setup public HTML folders with the appropriate permissions required for the server to access and serve the pages.
Implement DNS. Indicate to the system resolver which name servers are to be used; this information is stored in the /etc/resolv.conf file.
Configure the named DNS daemon to only allow queries from the local server and internal network hosts.
Configure a DHCP server with /etc/dhcpd.conf with more than one subnet of IP addresses.
The parameters specified above the "subnet" declaration are global parameters; they are applied to all subnet declarations.
The parameters inside each subnet override the global parameters.
Install and start the FTP server.
Display a custom welcome banner which is to be presented to each new user connecting to the server.
Do not allow anonymous users full download access.
The instructor will configure several scenarios; students will have to identify problems, determine which modules are associated with the problem, and resolve the problem.
Effective February 27, 2012, the course dates listed on the SYS-ED schedules only will be available based upon approved and authorized user ID.
