Red Hat Certification - RHCE - Preparation

Wow, there's lots of it in there. Some of it is about networking and a lot about individual services. I haven't actually planned to go get the exam soon, but I think just going through these objectives will make me better at Linux. Anyway, if I pass the RHCE, that …

RHCSA – Rapid Track – Day 5 - Exam

Last day! A little more kickstarting, LVM - logical volume management and File ACL. Then a rehearse of the previous chapters. Feeling a bit excited about tomorrow! These ACL were a bit more complex than I thought, but they could be made very complicated if you want to. But there's the …

RHCSA - Rapid Track - Day 1

First day done! What hit me was that there are many commands in linux, some you maybe only use for one purpose. But there are some things that you haven't done with it before, so an old command can still cause some trouble. For example crontab and the last * (or …

Red Hat Certification - RHCSA - Preparation

[toc] https://github.com/mconigliaro/RHCE-Cheat-Sheet Found this "cheat sheet" for RHCE. Sure it doesn't specifically say RHCSA but honestly there's a lot of good commands in there.

Install Scientific Linux 6 in VMWare Workstation

Time for some more Linux testing. The reason for this is because I think I will go ahead and try to study for the RHCSA - Red Hat Certified System Administrator. Work might send me to a course in December, probably wise to play around with it before this. So here …
