UNIX ADMIN TRAINING - ANY SUGGESTIONS

Post by Brian D. Catl » Tue, 02 Jan 1996 04:00:00



Hey Gang,

I managed to talk my boss into sending me to UNIX Admin training
if I can come up with a training company to do the job. I am the
Company webmaster, and a tech support engineer who has to deal
with a lot of custs hooking up our equipment to UNIX machines.
The company is basically BSD oriented. I am located in THe
Washington DC Area.

My question is can any of you suggest a good training company
that can do the series of classes needed to get me up to speed?
Obviously, local is preferred, but I will consider others.

Please E-mail me at either of my addresses in my sig

good program and are located in the DC area (Reston, VA).

AT&T does UNIX training, you can even get certified.
They are not cheap but they do have classes near you.
Most of them are in NJ.  Call 1-800-TRAINER for a catalog.

Or you can hire me! -)

1. Going to be training someone, suggestions for a non Unix person?

Hi all,

I am going to be getting some help in my current environment from
someone with no Unix background.  I think hes a mainframe guy, so I am
starting at ground zero.

Any suggestions on where to start?  I think we take a lot for granted,
and I have scared people off in the past (or maybe thats just me :) )
so I am hoping to avoid that this time...its a fairly simple
envinonment, about 15 Sun servers, V880s and a couple 450s running
Oracle and some in house software for a financial institution.  Most of
the things I do involved disk space management, putting out various
fires, adding new clients via. the in house software, monitoring with
Nagios and Orca....Backups with Com Vault and Storedge....Veritas
Volume Manager...

Off the top of my head I am thinking about:

Basics:
logging in
looking around (ls, pwd, who, df, ps, netstat, vmstat, prstat)
???

Troubleshooting:
/var/adm/messages
dmesg
app log files.
???

Any other things that will help get this guy off to a good start? I
don't want to scare him off without something actually "broke" I am not
sure where to start, other than logging in, poking around...then what?
