The Linux SysAdmin DeCal is back for Fall 2021!
This course will cover the basics of administering a Linux-based server environment in the manner of the EECS Instructional Servers (hivexx.cs.b.e) and the Open Computing Facility (tsunami.ocf.b.e, etc.). By the end of this course, we expect you to be comfortable using GNU/Linux, understand in a broad sense how the system’s various parts work together, e.g. init, filesystems, services, daemons, etc., understand basic networking, have a good sense about maintaining system security, understand system administration essentials in general and have a practical taste of what sysadmins do in industry.
This course offers two tracks: a beginner track which serves as a no-experience-required introduction to Linux, and an advanced track for students who are already familiar with Linux. Although we do assume prior knowledge in the advanced track (and therefore cover material at a faster pace), the only real prerequisite is a desire to learn. Both tracks will get started fast and move quickly - there’s a lot to cover.
For each track, 10 lab assignments will be offered throughout the semester. In order to receive credit for taking the course, you must complete all labs (with up to 2 unexcused late labs due by the end of the semester).
Due to EECS policy for Fall 2021 DeCals, all lectures will be delivered remotely, and support/office hours will be made available online. As policy and health conditions allow, we may also host optional lab activities in the OCF lab during scheduled class times.
