Red Hat Linux Troubleshooting


Techniques for troubleshooting a Linux system

Troubleshooting is both an art and a science. An instinct and a technique. In Red Hat® Linux® Troubleshooting (RH242), system administrators will learn techniques for troubleshooting a Linux system and how to use the troubleshooting tools available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This course is a 4-day, heavily lab-oriented class designed to help the student learn or improve troubleshooting skills. Students will gain troubleshooting experience by debugging live, virtualized systems.

Course content

  • Introduction to troubleshooting techniques, including being prepared
  • Troubleshooting hardware, including listing, testing, and analyzing devices
  • Troubleshooting applications, including diagnosing performance problems and investigating application and OS interactions
  • Troubleshooting disks and file systems, including LVM, LUKS, ext3/4, and unauthorized changes
  • Troubleshooting the network, including configuring, testing, and diagnosing problems with basic and advanced configurations
  • Security, including working effectively with (and not against) security tools like SELinux, authentication, and firewall
  • Making the most of Red Hat support resources
