Installing Cockpit and Additional Modules

The goal for this lab is to install the Cockpit system management software on a system. Once the base Cockpit install has been completed, you will check to see which modules were installed and install the Software Updates module along with a few others. The last step of this lab will be to confirm Cockpit is accessible via the default port, log into the console and confirm the Software Updates and other modules were installed and are accessible.
