Oracle Linux 7: What's New for Administrators Ed 1 (D94181GC10)

Oracle Linux 7: What's New for Administrators explains the expanded possibilities Oracle Linux 7 brings system administration through new and modified tools, task flows, and options in installation, networking, management, storage and more.

This course addresses system administration topics that are different in Oracle Linux 7 than they are in previous versions of Oracle Linux. You learn to understand how the boot process differs in Oracle Linux 7 with the GRUB 2 bootloader and the systemd system and service manager. You learn the new tools used to configure networking, storage, and security in Oracle Linux 7.

Learn To:

  • Perform common system administration tasks in Oracle Linux 7.
  • Configure the boot process, system logging, storage, and security.
  • Use advanced package management features.
  • Configure network bonding, VLANs, and VPNs.
  • Implement Docker containers.
  • Allocate system resources to specific Linux processes.

Benefits To You

Once you complete this 3-day course, you'll be able to install Oracle Linux 7, configure services to start at boot time and use new storage administration tools, including the System Storage Manager and Snapper. You'll develop the knowledge and skills to configure networking using the nmcli and ip command-line utilities, configure system logging using the new journald service, and configure firewalls using the new firewalld service.
