Welcome to OPS335 - Introduction to Open System Servers
What This Course is About
This course teaches the maintenance and administration of a UNIX server using Linux. Students will learn to install configure, customize, test and maintain common services available on Linux servers. This course is the third in a series of courses about Linux technologies.
As a system administrator, you will be responsible for installing, configuring, adjusting, maintaining, and troubleshooting the operation of computer systems. You will potentially have several hundreds (or thousands) of people depending on the machines that you manage. This is a lot of responsibility, and with that responsibility comes power. You will be able to change anything on the system, and you will also have the ability to damage or destroy the system.
In this course you use a removable disk pack with the lab computers to set up a Linux system. You will also set up several additional Linux systems using virtual machines, and therefore gain experience with different types of system configurations as well as setting up networking between systems.
Learning by Doing
Most of the learning in this course occurs through the hands-on problem solving that takes place in the labs and assignments. Therefore, it's very important to stay up-to-date with the coursework, and to practice until you have confidently mastered each task.
