Start of the Professional Linux SIG!

First topic will be “Hyper-visors: how-to setup your own server farm on your computer”

Linux users either KVM or ViurtualBox, Windows and Mac users will be ViurtualBox so brush up on them for the meeting. Then on May 18th we will discuss our project outlines ( for those who will be doing projects )

As an example my “project” will be getting a working OpenStack cluster running test jobs and I will investigate different “object storage” options which I will present and blog about. I am also very interested in learning LDAP and can work on that a s more of a team effort.

For those whom have no clue what to do, you can follow the Red Hat Certified Engineer aka RHCE curriculum as an outline of what a professional Linux Administrator is expected to know. The Hudson Valley Library System has the book “RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux certification study guide : exams (EX200 & EX300) By Michael Jang”. In the back of the book you will find a CD which contain a PDF version of the each chapter, along with example files.
