Linux Advanced System Administration (LPI) Course Overview This instructor led Linux Advanced System Administration (LPI) training course is designed to teach the advanced administration,security,networking and performance tasks required on a Linux Enterprise system.

Course overview:
Targeted to closely follow the official LPI curriculum (generic Linux),this course together with the Linux System Administration course will enable the delegate to work towards achieving the LPIC-2 qualification. Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

Course objectives:
Course Objectives On completion of this course the delegate will have in-depth technical knowledge of what is required to administer Linux within the Enterprise. They will have gained practical experience of configuring administrative,networking and security aspects of a Linux Enterprise system to an advanced level. The delegate will possess the essential knowledge required to work towards achieving the Linux Engineer LPIC-2 qualification.

Requirements Experience of administering Linux in an Enterprise environment to the level covered in the Linux System Administration (LPI & SCA) course

Target audience:
Who will the Course Benefit? The Linux Advanced System Administration (LPI) training course is suitable for Linux System Administrators who need to acquire advanced administration knowledge of the key administrative,networking and security tasks required on Linux within the Enterprise. An ideal course for delegates who will be working in an environment using several different Linux distributions and therefore knowledge of skills common to all the different Linux distributions is required. For the purpose of practical exercises,SUSE Linux will be used. Delegates who wish to work towards achieving the Linux Engineer LPIC-2 certification will find this course a good basis for LPIC-2: 201-450 and 202-450 exams. The appendixes also include other related topics that would be useful reading for delegates preparing for certification. Note: Should the delegate only require knowledge of Red Hat Linux then they should instead consider attending our range of Red Hat Linux Administration courses.
