Administering Linux servers can often be depressing; starting new work on a Monday morning and you realize no one knows the root password. In this course, RHEL 8: Operating Running Systems, you’ll learn to gain full control of your existing RHEL 8 systems. First, you’ll explore the boot process and learn to shut down and reboot systems and restrict user access during maintenance. Next, you’ll discover how to reset root passwords when access is restricted. Finally, you’ll learn to tune the performance of the system to match the requirements you define. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Linux system management allowing you to analyze issues, correcting them in an efficient manner.

Course Overview Hello everyone, and welcome. My name is Andrew Mallett, and you are just minutes from starting your journey in learning all that there is to know about running a RHEL 8 system. Let me introduce you to my latest Pluralsight course, RHEL 8: Operating Running Systems. Now I'm the owner of the Urban Penguin within the UK, training and consulting in Linux, and I've been doing this for many years now, working both as a system administrator and a dabbling developer, both in scripting languages and in C. This course is designed to get you up and running with the ins and out of day‑to‑day system administration operations on a RHEL 8 system and to help you, along with other courses in this series with passing the RHCSA exam. Some of the major topics that we cover include rebooting and shutting down a system gracefully, managing services with systemctl with a heap of really great subcommands, observing and tuning system performance, and managing logs and journal logs in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. By the end of this course, you will have enough knowledge to reliably message users about impending maintenance events and diagnose system performance and service issues on a running RHEL 8 system. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the latest command line and be able to edit files in Linux.
