Course Overview
Hi, everyone, my name is Anthony Nocentino, and welcome to my course LFCE: Advanced Network and System Administration. I am the founder and principal consultant at Centino Systems where we focus on developing scalable systems for our customers. Are you looking to level up your career with a Linux Foundation certification? Or maybe just round out your knowledge of Linux systems? If so, keep listening. In this course we're going to dive deep into some of the most common network and system administration functions of a Linux administrator, and prepare you for the deep level of knowledge needed to pass the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer Exam. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include managing network services, monitoring system performance, advanced package management, configuring and managing NFS ensemble. By the end of this course you'll know how to really drive the most value out of your Linux systems by providing more advanced network services and keeping your systems online and performing well. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Linux OS concepts such as processes and threads, file permissions, and creating and modifying users and groups. I hope you'll join me on this journey and learn advanced Linux network administration with LFCE: Advanced Network and System Administration.

Introduction and Lab Setup
Hello, this is Anthony Noicentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course LFCE: Advanced Linux Network and System Administration. This is the introduction module. In this module, we're going to give you a very brief introduction into the Linux Foundation and their Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, or LFCE certification, and also Redhat's Redhat Certified Engineer certification, RHCE. We're also going to discuss how to set up the lab environment for the remainder of this course. In this series of courses we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer LFCE learning objectives, but not every course and module is going to sync up exactly with the specific learning objective from the LFCE certification. I'm more interested in teaching you how things work. If you know how they work, not just how to perform a task, you will become a better problem-solver and increase your value as a Linux professional. Let's get started.

Managing Network Services
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino, with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, LFCE Advanced Linux Network and System Administration. This module is Managing Network Services. In this module, we're going to look into how Linux manages services running on your system, and we'll dig into how the system starts up and gets into its final running state, where your network services are up and running. Let's get started. So let's take a peek as to where we're heading in this course. This module is Managing Network Services. We'll head into Monitoring System Performance, and then we'll learn how to distribute packages in our data center with Advanced Package Management. And then we'll wrap up with how to share files amongst our systems with Configuring and Managing Network File System, and Configuring and Managing Samba.

Monitoring System Performance
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course LFCE Advanced Linux Network and System Administration. This module is Monitoring System Performance. In this module, we're going to get into how to monitor your system. More specifically, we're going to look at the core components that make up a computer system, what to look for inside those and how to monitor them. Then we'll take a look at baselining and benchmarking. In a series of courses, we plan on covering the Linux foundation certified engineer LCFE learning objectives. Now on the last module, Managing Network Services, we learned how to get our network services up and running with System D. Now, let's move on to monitoring system performance and keep those running service performing well with monitoring system performance.

Advanced Package Management
Hello, this is Anthony E. Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course LFCE advanced Linux network and system administration. This module is advanced package management. In this module we're going to go beyond just installing packages and cover things like building your own packages from your source, and configuring your own repositories to distribute that software in your data centers. In this series of courses we plan on covering the Linux foundation certified engineer LFCE learning objectives. So as we've moved through this course, we started with enabling and managing network services. So we have our servers online now. Then we dove into how to monitor our servers and keep them stable. Now it's time to learn how to distribute and manage software on those systems with advanced package management.

Configuring and Managing NFS
Hello, this is Anthony@Nocentino with Centino Systems, welcome to my course LFCE Advanced Linux, Networked, and System Administration. This module is Configuring and Managing NFS. In this module we're going to dive deep into how NFS works on both the client and the server side. And then we'll also look at how to secure access to our NFS shared data. In this series of courses, we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, LFCE learning objectives. Let's get started. So, as we've moved through this course, we started with enabling and Managing Network Services. So now we have our servers online. Then we dove into how to monitor our servers and keep them stable, with Monitoring System Performance. Then we learned how to distribute and manage software on our systems with Advanced Package Management. And now it's time to start sharing information amongst our systems with Configuring and Managing Network File System.

Configuring and Managing Samba
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, LFCE Advanced Linux Network and System Administration. This module is Configuring and Managing Samba. In this module, we're going to get deep into how Samba works on both the client and server side and dive into how to create shares and how to secure access to those shares in our Samba servers. We just learned how to share data amongst our Linux systems with Configuring and Managing NFS. Let's learn how to do the same, sharing data in a Windows and Linux world with Configuring and Managing Samba.
