Oracle Linux 6 Implementation Boot Camp V1.0 README

1 Boot Camp Overview


Oracle Linux 6 Implementation Boot Camp is a fast-paced two-day class that is designed to educate and make Oracle
partners aware of Oracle Linux 6 Operating System and help with customer implementations. It includes lecture and
extensive hands on labs. The focus is on hands on lab exercises that will help participants in customer implementations
or upgrades.

The main topics covered in the Oracle Linux 6 Implementation Boot Camp class include the following:

Oracle Linux 6 Installation

Oracle Linux Boot and System Configuration


Oracle Linux Software Package Management and Ksplice Zero Downtime Patching
Users and Groups Administration
File System Administration

Basic Networking and Security Administration

Oracle Linux System Monitoring and Troubleshooting

*Note: 2 days is recommended minimum; duration may be variable based upon audience knowledge and skill level, what content is
utilized and how a Delivery Partner conducts.

For more detailed information refer to Boot Camp Datasheet in the boot camp kit.

All content necessary to prepare for and successfully deliver this boot camp is contained within a set of files organized
within a standardized directory structure see Distribution Directory and File Description chapter. This set of files is
referred to as the course distribution.

1 Boot Camp Preparation


Instructor knowledge of the subject area and detailed familiarity with the course material are among the most important
factors in successful boot camp delivery. These should be covered by appropriate instructor selection and by reviewing
the instructor kit materials provided. In the case of most deliveries, the instructor needs to be in possession of the
necessary on site materials to support the class, as he/she serves as the primary (if not sole) source of logistical support
for students.

1.1 Facilities
This boot camp is designed to be delivered in person or in a live virtual format. Based on own web conferencing tool
characteristics, as well as on physical facility, a suitable classroom should be arranged to accommodate the planned class
size. This is just a planning guideline. You should base your decision on your knowledge of your planned participants.

In Class Training (ICT)

Maximum Recommended Class Size


The maximum number of students recommended to successfully deliver of this boot camp is as follows:
o One Instructor: 10 students

o Two Instructors: 20 students

Classroom Requirements
o Projector and Screen

o Whiteboard, markers, etc.

o Sufficient power outlets to accommodate instructor and students.

Network and System Requirements


o This boot camp requires internet network connectivity for most of the labs. This will allow students to
download required software to perform the lab exercises.
o All participants will use their own 64 bit laptops to perform the labs. Laptop/system requirement details
are documented in the Boot Camp Datasheet in the boot camp kit. Please make sure these requirements
are met.
o If there is no internet connectivity then the instructor would have to carry all the software packages
(RPM Files) on USB thumb drives. Refer to the Oracle_Linux_6_Labs_ReadMe_For_NoInternet.pdf
document in the boot camp kit to see which labs are affected when there is no internet access and the
files that will need to be downloaded by the instructor.
Live Virtual Training (LVT)

Maximum Recommended Class Size


The maximum number of students recommended for successful delivery of this boot camp is as follows:
o One Instructor: 10 actively participating students

o Two Instructors: 20 actively participating students

Based on our experience due to attrition, no shows and passive participants you may consider planning for a class of
twice the above sizing and only assuming that half of the confirmed participants will be actively involved.
Network Requirements
High speed internet connection is required for both students and instructor.

2 Environment Preparation
The lab exercises for the Oracle Linux 6 Boot Camp require the student to use their own laptop and have installed and
running Oracle VirtualBox application. They will use VirtualBox application to run all the Oracle Linux 6 lab exercises for
practice.

Student machines must meet the requirements as stated in the Boot Camp Datasheet. In addition, internet access is
required for performing most lab exercises.

Note: Oracle Linux Package Management Lab (lab 3) requires a trial Ksplice license key. Please contact OPN Events team
at opn-edu_ww@oracle.com or your Oracle Linux Partner Enablement representative to obtain the Ksplice trial license
key if you wish to perform this optional lab exercise at least one week before the event start date.

4 Distributable Material Preparation


This boot camp provides material that can be distributed in a printed or electronic format depending on the class type (in
class or live virtual). However, it is recommended to use the electronic format as lab documents are long.

Documents can be printed using any available printing service. Following are some best practices:

Print cover pages in color on glossy cardstock


Black and white is sufficient for document files
Print Student Manual in duplex as it is a lengthy file
Bind printouts using spiral binding as it lays flat when in use.

Some alternatives for electronic material distribution include:

Burn to CD/DVD and distribute to each student in class


Copy to portable media (e.g. USB drive) and pass around the room at the beginning of class
Email to students prior to class.
