RHEL 5 Administration Unleashed

RHEL 5 Administration Unleashed

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Administration Unleashed blends step-by-step instructions with just enough conceptual knowledge to help RHEL 5 administrators on a daily basis. Why another Linux book you might ask? I have been writing about Linux for years and reading Linux books for longer. When I first started learning Linux, I was frustrated with the lack of detail in most books. I would look up a topic, read all the theory and conceptual sections, and then turn the page expecting to see the actual instructions for implementing what I had read about.

Topics covered include:

* Installing on a single system or on multiple systems simultaneously with Kickstart
* Installing, updating, and removing software with YUM and Red Hat Network
* Navigating the Filesystem from the command line
* Managing storage with partitions, LVM, and RAID
* Using access control lists and disk quotas
* Managing users and groups efficiently
* Performing backups and rapid recovery
* Automating tasks with scripts and scheduling them with cron
* Setting up unified identity management services
* Administering network services for file sharing, network connectivity, an secure
remote login
* Monitoring and tuning system resources, the kernel, and applications
* Protecting against security vulnerabilities with SELinux and ExecShield
* Setting up a firewall with IPTables
* Customing the Linux Auditing System
* Running multiple operating systems concurrently with Virtualization
