Welcome to Cyberia. I t
My name is Greg Stuart, and I'm your subject matter expert for Lennox. Plus,
come to the end of the course and this is a good place to end on its the hands on exercises module of this course.
So in this module, we're gonna be learning it. You know, a couple of things you can do to do some hands on exercises, these air, he's come in very,
very handy for when you need to understand how to do things in the real world. On the exam, you're only gonna be asked questions in a multiple choice fashion. You might have a few dragon drop or fill in the blanks, but you're not gonna actually have to have your hands on any actual
Lennox command line or desktop window to actually do anything
in a live environment like you would have some other exams, like a C c N a R D cap D. C. A those kind of exam. So and this one was gonna What I've done is I've put together some
baseline hands on commands that you could do to get comfortable with the system and these air questions. I believe that you're gonna get tests on the exam.
Maybe asked like something like, Where do you go to find
a certain file or log? Or where do you go to
what, Commander? You used to move a file from one director to another, so these hands on exercises will actually prepare you to answer those questions confidently. So what I've done is I've laid out eight hands on exercises and I'm gonna put him up here, give you a quick synopsis of the exercise, and then you can go ahead and do him at your own pace.
So the 1st 1 is installed a Destro Lennox destroy from scratch. You can install
read half fedora, Sin toss
Debian coupon to you bun, too.
There's a number of sushi and Lennox. There's a number of distress that you can go online and grab and download
with the red hat. You may be able to get her a trial district trial download for that. If you sign up, get thes sales reps. Your information of calling and bugging about buying it
or how you doing with it. But this is a good place. You can go toe grab a destro and downloaded have somebody you conduce you hands on work with
again. This is going to require you to have a piece of hardware stores, the desktop or laptop that you can stall it on. Or
if you have a laptop or desktop that has Windows
or Lennox or a Mac OS, you can either download workstation for Windows or Linux VM O'Rourke station.
Or you can download Veum Refuge in for Mac. This will give you an opportunity to build some virtual machines on top of your existing laptop, where you can
have an environment that's completely segregated from the rest of your physical environment. The laptop. Great way to go, that's what what I've been using throughout this whole course, you can tell from the
demonstrations I've been using. It doesn't look like I'm actually on a Windows PC as fully on a virtual machine.
Then I'm using to show you the demos,
So your first order of business is to install a Lennox destroy from scratch, walk through it,
fold the commands, follow all the prompts and wizards and get it done.
Second, be don't go. Install the Cup servers is little more advanced and jumping from simple too advanced,
So if you have an opportunity, you can download install the cup server. We've done the walk through the demo and assistant administration module,
but you can do this. Go out and grab cups. Used the command line. I'm not gonna tell you how to do it,
but if you need to go back and use the lectures that I did and you demonstrations do that, so you understand what you're supposed to do and you can download the cup server install. Let's see how that goes and get used to using it
next. Once you have urine in your installation up and running, start creating files was created. Test file's directory, recon house, all of your test files.
Important to do that so you can use later. On the other hand, hands on labs. Where you can exercise is where you can
move files around and no, a single repositories. Roll your test father and be so created. Test File's directory.
This should get you in the
motive being able to create directories
and for number four,
unlikely to be able to create six different test files and place them in the test file's directory.
Once you do that'll give you the option to move them around. But
you need to go ahead and create the files. The files could be different. Find something you can copy, just like I did for that one article of cold from a Lennox website. Lennox Info, I believe, was
copy something down. Have some short files, have some longer files to me you can mess with an editor
would actually go ahead and create six different test files so that you can play with him in your in your desktop environment.
So number five would be to move a test file to the desktop directory. This is ah, would be a gaze. Be practicing a simple exercise of moving one file from one director to another.
You can also move multiple files of the same time just by separating than with a space.
So you had practice moving test files
Number six
simple ones. Just find your I P address. If you can go back through the modules. The lectures that we did
be we touched on one section of which was introduction to networking and we talked a little bit more in the Systems administrator module
of how to find your I p address in the different commands you can do for for baseline networking,
maintenance and administration
number seven changed the commissions on several of your test files to go in there and change the action commissions on your task files. We talked about how to do this and systems administration module under the making,
making fun, creating files and directories. You can do that there.
You need to go back and get you help
and the last one download super tux card game from the command line. This is a really awesome game
you've ever had Lennox before, and they're touching upon this. You really know about it. But it's a really cool game that a developer built. Relax that's completely free, and you can go out and download it using the method that I have showed you in this course.
So I'm not giving you any of the answers to these. I'm allowed to go through and do them. If you need help, go back through all of the lectures that we did.
Okay, go to the election you need to go to, depending on what problem issue you're having a problem with which lab or exercise you have a problem with
this is giving opportunity to kind of grow your own skill set in and feel confident. He,
uh, types of things. You're doing all the Lenox machine.
So I hope you enjoyed this course. And I hope you enjoy these hands on exercises. There are many websites out there that you can find a lot more exercises there many websites out there. In fact, to close this out, I'm gonna show you one website that I feel like you should definitely go to.
And that is this one right here. It's called you bun to geek
dot com.
These are all free, you bun to e books. And if you look through them, this ones do you want to serve a guide for 2014 starting with the fun to 14 04
which is the one this is the destro or the release that we've been using for the entire course.
Or you can go to
the Lenox Bible here. This is all these absolute hoop onto beginner's guide that you couldn't want to. Some of the only little bit older 12 10 were passed Well, about 10. So I would avoid those ones.
Um, how to create your own Lennox from scratch would be an interesting wondering. So there's a bunch of books out there you can download.
That would be great and get you often running on the right path to becoming a Lennox professional.
So again, I hope you enjoyed this course. Thank you for taking the time to sign up and take the course. Please leave some comments in the comments section.
Anything you feel like there could be, uh, improvements on.
Please feel free to speak your mind in the comments section, and we'll do our best to improve anything that needs to be improved.
Thanks again and good luck on your path to becoming a subject matter expert.
