This RHCSA Rapid Track course (RH200) relates to Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® (RHEL) 7 and is designed for students who already have significant experience with Linux administration. This RH200 course reviews the tasks covered in Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) and II (RH134) at an accelerated pace. This version of the course includes the Red Hat Certified System Administrator Exam (EX200) and on completion of the course students should be prepared to take the exam.
Note: This course builds on a student's existing understanding of command-line based Linux system administration. Students should be able to execute common commands using the shell, work with common command options, and access man pages for help. Students lacking this knowledge are strongly encouraged to take Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) and II (RH134) instead.
Students should have basic experience with the following, with minimal dependence on documentation:
- Linux (some of the course may be review)
- The bash shell, including job control (&, fg, bg, jobs), shell expansion (command, tilde, globbing, brace, protection from expansion), I/O redirection, and pipes
- IPv4 networking addressing and routing concepts, TCP/UDP, and ports
- Navigation of the GNOME 3 interface
- Editing text files from the command line with vim or other available programs
- Finding information in man pages and info nodes
- The concept of file permissions
- Interactive installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
- Per-user 'at' and 'cron' jobs
- Use of archival utilities such as 'tar', 'zip', and compression utilities
- Absolute and relative paths
- Finding files with 'find' and 'locate'
- Cost of the exam is included in the tuition price. Students must take the exam on the 5th day of class — Red Hat does not allow reschedules or issue vouchers for attendees who want to wait to take the exam at a later date.
