This book covers four major learning objectives: 1) a self-study guide for exam aspirants who intend to pass the RHCSA 8 exam, 2) an in-class training guide for college students, 3) an on-the-job reference for administrators, programmers, and managers, and 4) an easy-to-understand guide for novice and non-RHEL administrators who wish to learn RHEL from scratch.
This book has 21 chapters that are organized logically, keeping in mind the four learning objectives mentioned above. It covers the topics on local RHEL 8 installation; initial interaction with the system and basic commands; compression and archiving; file editing and manipulation; standard and special permissions; file searching and access controls; user monitoring and authentication files; users, groups, and password aging; bash shell features and startup files; processes and task scheduling; basic and advanced software administration techniques; system boot process and bootloader; kernel management and system initialization; logging and system tuning; basic and advanced storage management tools and solutions; local and remote file systems and swap regions; network device and connection configuration; time synchronization and hostname resolution; the secure shell service; and firewall and SELinux controls.
Each chapter highlights the major topics and relevant exam objectives at the beginning, and ends with review questions & answers and Do-It-Yourself challenge labs. Throughout the book, figures, tables, screen shots, examples, and exam tips have been furnished to support explanation and exam preparation. This book includes four sample exams for RHCSA, which are expected to be done using the knowledge and skills attained from reading the material and practicing the exercises and challenge labs.
