Red Hat Enterprise Deployment and Systems Managemen Equitrain

Course details

Get the skills you need to deploy and manage Red Hat systems to enterprise standards of reliability, availability, scalability, and manageability in this 4-day intensive hands-on lab course updated for the current version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Central to the course is hands-on training in the use of the Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite Server for deployment, provisioning, and monitoring of Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems.

Learn how to implement and manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments efficiently and effectively in ways that make the entire enterprise deployment manageable by a team. Install and deploy a RHN Satellite Server and use this server to keep a range of systems up to date, to provision new systems, and to monitor existing systems. With the satellite server, create custom software channels and custom configuration channels. Use the Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) to create your own RPMs, and manage the RPMs using CVS and the RHN Satellite Server. Finally, create a netdump server that collects kernel core dumps from many systems, saving them to a single system.

You'll also get a technology preview of Xen virtualization, a method for virtualizing a computer, allowing multiple host operating systems to run on a single hardware platform. The Xen technology preview will be taught using Fedora Core 5
