RED HAT SATELLITE SERVER
This module will cover Red Hat Enterprise Deployment and Systems Management (RH401) and Red Hat Satellite 6 Administration (RH403)
Students will use Red Hat Satellite to manage the software development life cycle of a subscribed host and its configuration. Students should have previous Red Hat Satellite experience, since the course will compare Red Hat Satellite 6 features and terminology with Red Hat Satellite 5.
Senior Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administrators responsible for the planning, deployment, and management of multiple physical or virtualized servers
