Course overview

This class is an accelerated course combining the topics in the h7091 "Enterprise Linux Systems Administration", and the h7092 "Enterprise Linux Network 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 u8583 "Linux Fundamentals", h7091 "Enterprise Linux Systems Administration" or h7092 "Enterprise Linux Network Services"

Supported Distributions

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise 11
