Unix System Administration

[ Jump within this page: Introduction | Course Documents | Instructors ]


This course on Unix System Administration is organized by LinuxChix Africa , in collaboration with IDRC, AfNOG and NSRC. The course syllabus follows the AfNOG Workshop Track E0 content and materials.

Overall objective: After attending this track, students will be able to install, upgrade, secure and competently manage the Unix operating system on standard PC hardware, and use it to provide essential Internet services on a network. It is aimed at students who are technically competent but may have had little or no prior exposure to the Unix environment.

Who should attend: Technical staff who are now providing Internet Services, or those who will be involved in the establishment and/or provisioning of basic national Internet Services in the country.

Prerequisites: Experience in managing PCs and installing software (such as installing the 'Windows' operating system), but not necessarily Unix. Some prior Unix/Linux experience would be of great benefit.
