Red Hat System Administration II training course

0 days


Part 2 of the core system administration tasks needed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

This version of the course relates to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. This course is specifically designed for students who have completed Red Hat System Administration I (RH124). This version of the course includes the Red Hat Certified System Administrator Exam (EX200).

Red Hat System Administration II (RH135) focuses on the key tasks needed to become a full time Linux administrator. This course goes deeper into enterprise Linux administration including file systems and partitioning, logical volumes, SELinux, firewalling, and troubleshooting. Attending both Red Hat System Administration I and Red Hat System Administration II can help you in your preparation for the Red Hat Certified System Administrator exam (EX200), which is included in this version of the course.


This course is singularly designed for students who have completed Red Hat System Administration I (RH124). The organization of topics is such that it is not appropriate for student to use RH134 as a curriculum entry point. Students who have not taken a previous Red Hat course are encouraged to take either System Administration I if they are new to Linux, or the RHCSA Rapid Track Course (RH200) if they are experienced with enterprise Linux administration.

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to extend, automate, and better secure an existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployment. It is designed as a natural extension of the RH124 course and introduces advanced file-system management capabilities, security controls, and firewall configuration.The skills developed in this course could lead to improved infrastructure performance, increased system utilization, and responsiveness to system failures. A better understanding of Linux file system and logical volume management should result in lower storage costs and better use of existing storage solutions.

Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.

Impact of this training

As a result of attending this course, students should be able to perform the key tasks needed to become a full-time Linux administrator. Students will be introduced to more advanced administrative topics, such as storage management using LVM, SELinux management, and automated installation. This course goes deeper into enterprise Linux administration, including file systems and partitioning, logical volumes, SELinux, firewall configuration, and troubleshooting.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Automate installations using Kickstart
  • Manage file systems and logical volumes
  • Access network file systems
  • Control firewalls
  • Perform troubleshooting tasks


The course assumes delegates have attended the Red Hat 7 System Administration - Part 1 course and, therefore, already have some experience using Red Hat 7 Linux.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
