Central Administration of Linux Systems


For larger system environments a centralized management is essential. Puppet provides a versatile and easy to use way to manage configuration files. When it comes to the installation of new systems and the central management software on a network, this can be realized with Spacewalk. Spacewalk is the basis for the commercial products Red Hat Satellite Server and SUSE Manager and can manage various Linux distributions.

Target Group:

Administrators who want to manage larger system environments centrally and automatically .


Thorough knowledge of the administration of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and CentOS 6 is required. Secure handling of the vi editor also part of the prerequisite for this workshop.
