In this brief course - the third of six covering the LPIC-1 102 exam and the eighth of eleven courses making up the full LPIC-1 series - we will work with some key areas of Linux administration: managing users and groups, scheduling the execution of unattended tasks, and maintaining accurate and efficient system environment variables and localisation.

In this rather brief course, we're going to explore some basic but critical Linux administration tasks. We'll talk about organizing and protecting system resources through managing user accounts and groups.
We'll become familiar with the system files that track user and group configurations as part of that process.
We'll also learn how to schedule regular or one-time tasks so they can be reliably executed even if you're not around to set them off. And we'll see how the computers you administrate can be optimized for your particular geographic region by setting the proper time zone and system localization variables. Let's get started.
David taught high school for twenty years, worked as a Linux system administrator for five years, and has been writing since he could hold a crayon between his fingers. His childhood bedroom wall has since been repainted.
Having worked directly with all kinds of technology, David derives great pleasure from completing projects that draw on as many tools from his toolkit as possible.
Besides being a Linux system administrator with a strong focus on virtualization and security tools, David writes technical documentation and user guides, and creates technology training videos.
His favorite technology tool is the one that should be just about ready for release tomorrow. Or Thursday.
