Course Description

Study to pass the RHCE-the benchmark certification for Red Hat Enterprise Linux-and master disk systems and system backup techniques for Linux. This course covers creating and resizing BIOS and GPT partitions, optimizing and repairing EXT and XFS file systems, and reaping the advantages of volume management using LVM. Learn how to increase or shrink existing logical volumes as well as replace physical drives in volume groups. Grant also shows how to create RAID 0 and RAID 5 arrays, and use snapshots to back up and restore a Linux system. He also uses merge snapshots to roll back a system disk image. Plus, learn alternate backup methods with tar, the xz compressor, and dump and restore commands.

The following topics are:

  • Create partitions
  • Backing up the partition table
  • Resize partitions
  • Managing LVM volumes
  • Creating LVM rollback and roll-forward snapshots
  • Extending and shrinking LVM volume groups
  • Replacing physical volumes in LVM volume groups
  • Creating Linux file systems
  • Managing swap
  • Creating RAID arrays using LVM
  • Backing up and restoring files and file systems
