Why study this course

This course serves as the second part of the RHCSA training track for IT professionals who have taken Red Hat System Administration I (RH124).

Red Hat System Administration II focuses on the key tasks needed to become a full time Linux administrator. The course goes deeper into core Linux system administration skills in storage configuration and management, installation and deployment of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, management of security features such as SELinux, control of recurring system tasks, management of the boot process and troubleshooting, basic system tuning, and command-line automation and productivity.

Experienced Linux administrators looking for rapid preparation for the RHCSA certification should instead start with RHCSA Rapid Track (RH199).

The Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam (EX200) is included in this offering, which is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.2.
