Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Solaris Administrators

    All major credit cards accepted


    When migrating platforms, it is critical to ensure that in-house professionals have the skills to maximize performance and maintain efficiency across the entire system. Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® for Solaris Administrators (RH290) quickly but completely covers many of the hands- on, practical skills needed when migrating from Sun Solaris to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The course focuses on the differences between the two operating systems, covering Red Hat Enterprise Linux equivalents to Solaris-specific technologies, like applying software patches, automating deployment with Jumpstart, and using advanced filesystem features. In addition, the course demonstrates how to use RPM, yum, Red Hat Network (RHN), and Kickstart to manage your environment.
