In this module we're going to give you a very brief introduction into the Linux and Red Hat worlds and perform a basic installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. In this series of courses, we plan on covering the Red Hat Certified System Administrator and Red Hat Certified Engineer RHCE learning objectives. I really want to take your Linux sys lab and skill to the next level and get you started on your RHCSA and RHCE learning path. This course introduces you to the essential tools needed to administer and managed RHEL based systems. You'll learn the core concepts of the bash shell, managing files and compression, text editing, managing file permissions, and some advanced shell topics such as searching and text files, and finally, where to find help when needed.

We're going to introduce what is Linux and where did it come from and who are the major players in the Linux community? Then we're going to discuss where you can get RHEL or a clone. Next, a high-level review of the hardware requirements to install RHEL, touch on the basic installation options, and then show you where to go if things go wrong by checking out the installation logs and the virtual consoles.

Configuring and Managing File Permissions
Hello. This is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, Understanding and Using Essentials Tools in Enterprise Linux 7. This module is configuring and managing file permissions. In this module we're going to cover the basics of managing files and file compression on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. In this series of courses we plan on covering the Red Hat Certified System Administrator RHCSA and Red Hat Certified Engineer RHCE learning objectives. I really want to take your Linux sys admin skills to the next level and get you started on your RHCSA or RHCE learning path. This course introduces you to the essential tools needed to administer and manage a RHEL based system. You'll learn the core concepts of the bash shell, managing files and file compression, text editing, managing file permissions, and some advanced shell topics such as searching in text files, and then finally, where to find help when needed. All of these skills will enable you to cruise the command line confidently. Let's get started and check out the topics we're going to cover in this module. Keeping data secure is at the core of a system administrator's function. Let's check out how we're going to do that in RHEL 7, or really any UNIX or Linux based system. In this module we'll describe the basics of Linux file permissions, examine how to work with file permissions in both octal and symbolic notation, check out how to keep files secure right from the start with umask, then explore how to manage some special access circumstances with setuid, setgid and the sticky bit, and perhaps we need to do a little fine tuning of file and directory access with attributes and then to close out the module, we'll discuss a methodology on what to do when things aren't just right and learn how to diagnose and correct file permission problems. Let's get started.
