CIS 133 UNIX/Linux System Administration I

This course covers the installation, administration and maintenance of a UNIX/Linux file server. The required hardware, system and network configurations will be discussed. Both LAN and WAN connections to the server will be covered before the installation procedure is presented in detail. Starting, controlling and shutting down the server will be covered, and each student will have hands on experience with their own server. User administration, as well as the UNIX/Linux file system organization and security features, are introduced after the student servers are functioning on the network. Process, mail management and performance tuning issues are also discussed near the end of the course. The course will use a computer lab where each student will have individual access to a UNIX/Linux server. Prerequisite: CIS 132 (formerly CIS 63) with a C or better or permission of the instructor.
