Recover a Corrupted RPM Database
The RPM package manager lets us distribute, manage, and update software. It is also an underlying component of other package managers such as `yum` and `dnf`. As such, it's paramount there are no issues with RPM while working on our Red Hat servers. In the event our RPM database corrupts, there are steps we can take to recover the database and thus repair the issues. This hands-on lab reviews these steps. _This course is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat._
