Dig Server1.example.com, Resolve to successfully through DNS Where DNS server
is 172.24.254.254
Answer and
Explanation:
#vi /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 172.24.254.254
# dig server1.example.com
#host server1.example.com
DNS is the Domain Name System, which maintains a database that can help your
computer translate domain names such as www.redhat.com to IP addresses such as
216.148.218.197. As no individual DNS server is large enough to keep a database for the
entire Internet, they can refer requests to other DNS servers.
DNS is based on the named daemon, which is built on the BIND (Berkeley Internet
Name Domain) package developed through the Internet Software Consortium
Users wants to access by name so DNS will interpret the name into ip address. You need
to specify the Address if DNS server in each and every client machine. In Redhat
Enterprise Linux, you need to specify the DNS server into /etc/resolv.conf file.
After Specifying the DNS server address, you can verify using host, dig and nslookup
commands.

Your System is going use as a router for 172.24.0.0/16 and 172.25.0.0/16. Enable the
IP Forwarding.
Answer and
Explanation:
1. echo “1″ >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
2. vi /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
/proc is the virtual filesystem, containing the information about the running kernel. To
change the parameter of running kernel you should modify on /proc. From Next reboot
the system, kernel will take the value from /etc/sysctl.conf.

neo user tried by:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/neo/somefile bs=1024 count=70
files created successfully. Again neo tried to create file having 70K using following
command:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/neo/somefile bs=1024 count=70
But he is unable to create the file. Make the user can create the file less then 70K.
Actualtests.com – The Power of Knowing
RH302
Answer and
Explanation:
Very Tricky question from redhat. Actually question is giving scenario to you to
implement quota to neo user. You should apply the quota to neo user on /home that neo
user shouldn’t occupied space more than 70K.
1. vi /etc/fstab
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults,usrquota 0 0
To enable the quota on filesystem you should mount the filesystem with usrquota for user
quota and grpquota for group quota.
2. touch /home/aquota.user ->Creating blank quota database file.
3. mount -o remount /home-> Remounting the /home with updated mount options.
You can verify that /home is mounted with usrquota options or not using mount
command.
4. quotacheck -u /home ->Initialization the quota on /home
5. edquota -u neo /home-> Quota Policy editor
See the snapshot
Disk quotas for user neo (uid 500):
Filesystem blocks soft hard inodes soft hard
/dev/mapper/vo-myvol 2 30 70 1 0 0
Can you set the hard limit 70 and soft limit as you think like 30.
Verify using the repquota /home command.
QUESTION
7
One Logical Volume is created named as myvol under vo volume group and is
mounted. The Initial Size of that Logical Volume is 124MB. Make successfully that
the size of Logical Volume 245MB without losing any data. The size of logical
volume 240MB to 255MB will be acceptable.
Answer and
Explanation:
1. First check the size of Logical Volume: lvdisplay /dev/vo/myvol
2. Increase the Size of Logical Volume: lvextend -L+121M /dev/vo/myvol
3. Make Available the size on online: resize2fs /dev/vo/myvol
4. Verify the Size of Logical Volume: lvdisplay /dev/vo/myvol
5. Verify that the size comes in online or not: df -h
We can extend the size of logical Volume using the lvextend command. As well as to
decrease the size of Logical Volume, use the lvresize command. In LVM v2 we can
extend the size of Logical Volume without unmount as well as we can bring the actual
size of Logical Volume on online using ext2online command.
QUESTION
8
Quota is implemented on /data but not working properly. Find out the
Problem and implement the quota to user1 to have a soft limit 60 inodes
(files) and hard limit of 70 inodes (files).
Answer and
Actualtests.com – The Power of Knowing
RH302
Explanation:
Quotas are used to limit a user’s or a group of users’ ability to consume disk space. This
prevents a small group of users from monopolizing disk capacity and potentially
interfering with other users or the entire system. Disk quotas are commonly used by ISPs,
by Web hosting companies, on FTP sites, and on corporate file servers to ensure
continued availability of their systems.
Without quotas, one or more users can upload files on an FTP server to the point of
filling a filesystem. Once the affected partition is full, other users are effectively denied
upload access to the disk. This is also a reason to mount different filesystem directories
on different partitions. For example, if you only had partitions for your root (/) directory
and swap space, someone uploading to your computer could fill up all of the space in
your root directory (/). Without at least a little free space in the root directory (/), your
system could become unstable or even crash.
You have two ways to set quotas for users. You can limit users by inodes or by kilobytesized
disk blocks. Every Linux file requires an inode. Therefore, you can limit users by
the number of files or by absolute space. You can set up different quotas for different
filesystems. For example, you can set different quotas for users on the /home and /tmp
directories if they are mounted on their own partitions.
Limits on disk blocks restrict the amount of disk space available to a user on your system.
Older versions of Red Hat Linux included LinuxConf, which included a graphical tool to
configure quotas. As of this writing, Red Hat no longer has a graphical quota
configuration tool. Today, you can configure quotas on RHEL only through the command
line interface.
1. vi /etc/fstab
/dev/hda11 /data ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 2
2. Either Reboot the System or remount the partition.
Mount -o remount /dev/hda11 /data
3. touch /data/aquota.user
4. quotacheck -ufm /data
5. quotaon -u /data
6. edquota -u user1 /data
and Specified the Soft limit and hard limit on opened file.
To verify either quota is working or not:
Soft limit specify the limit to generate warnings to users and hard limit can’t cross by the
user. Use the quota command or repquota command to monitor the quota information.
QUESTION
9
One Logical Volume named lv1 is created under vg0. The Initial Size of that Logical
Volume is 100MB. Now you required the size 500MB. Make successfully the size of
that Logical Volume 500M without losing any data. As well as size should be
increased online.
Answer and
Explanation:
The LVM system organizes hard disks into Logical Volume (LV) groups. Essentially,
physical hard disk partitions (or possibly RAID arrays) are set up in a bunch of equalRH302
Actualtests.com – The Power of Knowing
RH302
sized chunks known as Physical Extents (PE). As there are several other concepts
associated with the LVM system, let’s start with some basic definitions:
• Physical Volume (PV) is the standard partition that you add to the LVM mix.
Normally, a physical volume is a standard primary or logical partition. It can also
be a RAID array.
• Physical Extent (PE) is a chunk of disk space. Every PV is divided into a number
of equal sized PEs. Every PE in a LV group is the same size. Different LV groups
can have different sized PEs.
• Logical Extent (LE) is also a chunk of disk space. Every LE is mapped to a
specific PE.
• Logical Volume (LV) is composed of a group of LEs. You can mount a
filesystem such as /home and /var on an LV.
• Volume Group (VG) is composed of a group of LVs. It is the organizational
group for LVM. Most of the commands that you’ll use apply to a specific VG.
1. Verify the size of Logical Volume: lvdisplay /dev/vg0/lv1
2. Verify the Size on mounted directory: df -h or df -h mounted directory name
3. Use : lvextend -L+400M /dev/vg0/lv1
4. resize2fs /dev/vg0/lv1 to bring extended size online.
5. Again Verify using lvdisplay and df -h command.
QUESTION

6. Press P to verify the partitions lists and remember the partitions name.
7. Press w to write on partitions table.
8. Either Reboot or use partprobe command.
9. Use mkfs -t ext3 /dev/hda?
Or
mke2fs -j /dev/hda? To create ext3 filesystem.
10. vi /etc/fstab
Write:
/dev/hda? /data ext3 defaults 1 2
11. Verify by mounting on current Sessions also:
mount /dev/hda? /data

There are more then 400 Computers in your Office. You are appointed as a System
Administrator. But you don’t have Router. So, you are going to use your One Linux
Server as a Router. How will you enable IP packets forward?
Answer and
Explanation:
1. /proc is the virtual filesystem, we use /proc to modify the kernel parameters at running
time.
# echo “1″ >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
2. /etc/sysctl.conf when System Reboot on next time, /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit scripts reads
the file /etc/sysctl.conf.-> To enable the IP forwarding on next reboot also you need to set
the parameter.
net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
Here 0 means disable, 1 means enable.

Explanation:
DNS is the Domain Name System, which maintains a database that can help your
computer translate domain names such as www.redhat.com to IP addresses such as
216.148.218.197. As no individual DNS server is large enough to keep a database for the
entire Internet, they can refer requests to other DNS servers.
DNS is based on the named daemon, which is built on the BIND (Berkeley Internet
Name Domain) package developed through the Internet Software Consortium
Users wants to access by name so DNS will interpret the name into ip address. You need
to specify the Address if DNS server in each and every client machine. In Redhat
Enterprise Linux, you need to specify the DNS server into /etc/resolv.conf file.
After Specifying the DNS server address, you can verify using host, dig and nslookup
commands.
#host server1.example.com

You are giving the RHCE exam. Now you should boot your System properly. When
you started your System, You got one message that.
INIT Entering runlevel 9
INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel
How will you boot your System properly?
Answer and
Explanation:
You should know about the /etc/inittab file, where default runlevel will define. And
Much more runlevel specific Scripts are called here.
Actually that problem will occur if you don’t specify the default runlevel.
1. Reboot the system
2. Boot the System on single user mode.
Except for a normal boot of Linux, single-user mode is the most commonly used option.
This is the system maintenance mode for experienced Linux administrators. It allows you
to perform clean backups and restores to any partitions as needed from local hardware. It
also allows you to run administration commands, recover or repair password and shadow
password files, run filesystem checks, and so forth.
3. vi /etc/inittab and Write
id:runlevel:initdefault:
Standard Runlevels in RedHat Enterprise Linux
Runlevel Description
0 Halt
1 Single-user mode, for maintenance (backups/restores) and repairs
2 Multiuser, without networking

You are giving RHCE exam. Examiner gave you the Boot related problem and told
to you that make successfully boot the System. While booting system, you saw some
error and stop the boot process by displaying some error messages.
Kernel Panic – not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
And no further boot process. What you will do to boot the system.
Answer and
Explanation:
To understand the role of a boot loader, take a step back from Linux. When you boot
your computer, the BIOS starts by detecting basic hardware, including your hard drives.
Once it’s done, it looks for the boot loader on the Master Boot Record of the first
available disk. If you’re working with an older PC, the BIOS can’t find your boot loader
unless it’s located within the first 1,024 cylinders of the hard disk.
Newer BIOSes overcome this problem with Logical Block Addressing, which is also
known as LBA mode. LBA mode reads ‘logical’ values for the cylinder, head, and sector,
which allows the BIOS to ‘see’ a larger disk drive.
If you have multiple hard drives, there is one more caveat. If your drives are IDE hard
drives, the /boot directory must be on a hard drive attached to the primary IDE controller.
If your drives are all SCSI hard drives, the /boot directory must be located on a hard drive
with SCSI ID 0 or ID 1. If you have a mix of hard drives, the /boot directory must be
located on either the first IDE drive or a SCSI drive with ID 0. In other words, this is not
an issue on the Red Hat exams unless the computer that you’re tested on has more than
two hard drives. And I believe that’s less likely, as that would increase the cost of the
exam.
If you are getting the Kernel panic error, it means it is boot loader related problem.
Redhat Enterprise Linux uses the GRUB boot loader. You can pass the kernel
parameter from the boot loader as well as you can correct the kernel parameter
passing from boot loader from GRUB screen at boot time.
GRUB boot loader configuration file is: /etc/grub.conf
And Correct Configuration is:
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

Answer and
Explanation:
1. vi /etc/auto.master
/mnt /etc/auto.misc –timeout=50
2. vi /etc/auto.misc
3. data -rw,soft,intr server1.example.com:/data
4. service autofs restart
5. chkconfig autofs on
When you mount the other filesystem, you should unmount the mounted filesystem,
Automount feature of linux helps to mount at access time and after certain seconds, when
user unaccess the mounted directory, automatically unmount the filesystem.
/etc/auto.master is the master configuration file for autofs service. When you start the
service, it reads the mount point as defined in /etc/auto.master.

4. service crond restart
The cron system is essentially a smart alarm clock. When the alarm sounds, Linux runs
the commands of your choice automatically. You can set the alarm clock to run at all
sorts of regular time intervals. Alternatively, the at system allows you to run the
command of your choice once, at a specified time in the future.
Red Hat configured the cron daemon, crond. By default, it checks a series of directories
for jobs to run, every minute of every hour of every day. The crond checks the
/var/spool/cron directory for jobs by user. It also checks for scheduled jobs for the
computer under /etc/crontab and in the /etc/cron.d directory.
Here is the format of a line in crontab. Each of these columns is explained in more detail:
#minute, hour, day of month, month, day of week, command
* * * * * command
Entries in a crontab Command Line
Field Value

/etc/security/access.conf file helps to allow or deny login to users on the basis of origin.
Syntax of /etc/security/access.conf
permission : users : origins
The first field should be a “+” (access granted) or “-” (access denied) character.
The second field should be a list of one or more login names, group names, or ALL
(always matches). A pattern of the form user@host is matched when the login name
matches the “user” part, and when the “host” part matches the local machine name.
The third field should be a list of one or more tty names (for non-networked logins), host
names, domain names (begin with “.”), host addresses, internet network numbers (end
with “.”), ALL (always matches) or LOCAL (matches any string that does not contain a
“.” character).

User_alias LIMITEDTRUST=peter
# Cmnd alias Specification
Cmnd_alias MINIMUM=/usr/sbin/useradd, /usr/bin/passwd, /usr/sbin/groupadd,
/usr/sbin/userdel, /usr/sbin/groupdel, /usr/sbin/usermod
# User Privilege Specification
LIMITEDTRUST ALL=MINIMUM
2. Login as peter user and run sudo useradd username
Using Sudo we can give root level privilege on commands. Visudo is the sudo editor. In
user alias Specification we create the user alias and in Cmnd alias Specification, we
create the command alias. In User Privilege Specification section, list the users, groups
allowed to use the sudo.

only from local domain.
Actualtests.com – The Power of Knowing

Answer and
Explanation:
1. vi /etc/hosts.deny
vsftpd:ALL EXCEPT .example.com
We can secure the services using tcp_wrappers. There are main two files, /etc/hosts.allow
and /etc/hosts.deny.
There will be three stage access checking
-Is access explicitly permitted? Means permitted from /etc/hosts.allow?
- Otherwise, Is access explicitly denied? Means denied from /etc/hosts.deny?
- Otherwise, by default permit access if neither condition matched.
To deny the services we can configure /etc/hosts.deny file using ALL and EXCEPT
operation. Pattern of /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny file is:
Demon_list:client_list:options
In Client list can be either domain name or IP address.
