Linux System Administration

Linux System Administration

A system administrator, IT systems administrator, systems administrator, or sysadmin is a person employed to maintain and operate a computer system and/or network. System administrators may be members of an information technology (IT) or Electronics and Communication Engineering department.

The duties of a system administrator are wide-ranging, and vary widely from one organization to another. Sysadmins are usually charged with installing, supporting and maintaining servers or other computer systems, and planning for and responding to service outages and other problems. Other duties may include scripting or light programming, project management for systems-related projects, supervising or training computer operators, and being the consultant for computer problems beyond the knowledge of technical support staff. To perform his or her job well, a system administrator must demonstrate a blend of technical skills and responsibility.

Training Topics in brief:

  • Overview of Operating Systems - specifically Linux.
  • Installation and configuration of Linux based Systems
  • Installing fedora, ubuntu and debian flavours of Linux
  • Learning to partition the disk according to the requirement
  • Introduction to Linux, Getting comfortable with basic linux commands and utilities
  • Learning to mantain and upgrade the Linux operating system
  • Learning to install and upgrade the additional softwares

Salient Features of Training Program

Training Objective:

  • This training program is designed to ensure that students of Engineering College with academic capabilities will have the skill set needed to deal with the challenges involved in real-world Linux System administration techniques, to meet the needs of industries both today and in the future.
  • The course considers Linux based System iinstallation, confuguration, administration, maintenance, upgradetion etc. which can help to ensure that Linux based development systems are reliable. The course is taught mainly using the LInux based systems using Fedora, Ubuntu and Debian.


  • Good IQ and Aptitude is required. Ability to use computer systems, general understanding about operating system concepts are assumed.


The Duration of Training would be:
  • The Duration of training would be 5 working days.
  • There would be 5 Classroom Sessions of 2 hours each
  • There would be 5 Lab of 4 hours each.
Training Methodology:
  • Hands on approach to training, behaviorial model of training would be practiced.
  • During the training, the Trainee would implement a projects related to respective modules.
  • Comitment to Individual growth and constant evaluation.
  • Implementation of programming techniques through a Project.


After the training is over the trainee should be able to:-

  • Understand the applications of Linux based Operationg Systems
  • Install Linux on any type of desktop systems
  • Inatall Fedora, Ubuntu and Debian on 32 bit or 64 bit x86 systems
  • Partition the disk according to the requirement
  • Do User administration (setup and maintaining account)
  • Maintain/upgrade operating systems
  • Verify that peripherals are working properly
  • Monitor system performance
  • Create file systems, take backup and restore
  • Install/upgrade software and do software management
  • Create a backup and recover policy
EmbLogic would issue/provide the following:-
  • Fedora, Ubuntu and Debian Operation System DVD with Sources
  • Letter/Certificate of Completion for the training and Project as mentioned above

Responsibilities of A Linux System Administrator:

A system administrator's responsibilities might include:
  • Understand the existing System Hardware and further requirements
  • Installing Linux based Operating System according to the requirement
  • Analyzing system logs and identifying potential issues with computer systems.
  • Installing additional softwares as required by the team
  • Upgrading Operating System and other softwares
  • Performing routine audits of systems and software.
  • Setting up security policies and Performing backups.
  • Applying operating system updates, patches, and configuration changes.
  • Installing and configuring new hardware and software.
  • Adding, removing, or updating user account information, resetting access and permissions, etc.
  • Responsibility for security.
  • Responsibility for documenting the configuration of the system.
  • Troubleshooting any reported problems.
  • System performance tuning.
  • IIn larger organizations, some tasks listed above may be divided among different system administrators or members of different organizational groups. For example...
    • a dedicated individual(s) may apply all system upgrades,
    • a Quality Assurance (QA) team may perform testing and validation, and
    • one or more technical writers may be responsible for all technical documentation written for a company
  • In smaller organizations, the system administrator can also perform any number of duties elsewhere associated with other fields:
    • Technical support
    • Database administrator (DBA)
    • Network administrator/analyst/specialist
    • Application analyst
    • Security administrator
    • Programmer
System administrators, in larger organizations, tend not to be system architects, system engineers, or system designers. However, like many roles in this field, demarcations between system administration and other technical roles often are not well defined in smaller organizations. Even in larger organizations, senior system administrators often have skills in these other areas as a result of their working experience.
In smaller organizations, IT/computing specialties are less often discerned in detail, and the term system administrator is used in a rather generic way — they are the people who know how the computer systems work and can respond when something fails.
