This course introduces basic administration functions involving Red Hat Enterprise Linux within an IBM Power Systems running Linux ecosystem. In this course students are taught installation, configuration, administration and troubleshooting. Students will also learn command line operations, graphical desktop deployment, device management, IBM tools, and system recovery. The course is part of a Linux curriculum path available to students who want to focus on Red Hat.

This course provides lectures and hands on labs in an instructor lead course environment, either in a face-to-face classroom or in a live virtual classroom environment (ILO - Instructor Led Online).
