A Compact and quick guide to the core parts of CentOS 7 Administration.
CentOS 7 is the brand new version of the CentOS Linux system. It is one of the most widely-used operating systems, being the choice of many organizations across the globe. Its consistent, manageable platform suits a variety of deployments. Being a predictable base to build upon, it covers extensive resources to build, test, release and maintain their code.
In this course, you’ll set up a complete training laboratory using virtualization and see the possibilities with CentOS 7. You’ll start by learning how to install CentOS 7, see the benefits of it, download and confirm checksum on Windows or OS X, run a net installation over HTTP, and troubleshoot the system.
Then you’ll learn how to set up a full-blown Virtual box Training lab. You’ll learn to install and adjust machines to make them communicate and see how to reset the machine. Next, you’ll configure the system learning static network connection.
Moving on, we’ll walk through managing the system and managing packages with Yum. You’ll then troubleshoot, configure, synchronize, and install packages and create repositories and packages. Finally, you’ll deep dive into administering the file system, where you’ll learn to create a virtual block, format, maintain, and extend the capacity of the filesystem.
