If you're an experienced system administrator looking to acquire Linux skills, or a seasoned Linux user facing a new challenge, Linux System Administration offers practical knowledge for managing a complete range of Linux systems and servers. The book summarizes the steps you need to build everything from standalone SOHO hubs, web servers, and LAN servers to load-balanced clusters and servers consolidated through virtualization. Along the way, you'll learn about all of the tools you need to set up and maintain these working environments.

Linux is now a standard corporate platform with users numbering in the hundreds of millions, and there is a definite shortage of talented administrators. Linux System Administration is ideal as an introduction to Linux for Unix veterans, MCSEs, and mainframe administrators, and as an advanced (and refresher) guide for existing Linux administrators who will want to jump into the middle of the book. Inside, you'll learn how to:

  • Set up a stand-alone Linux server
  • Install, configure, maintain, and troubleshoot a DNS server using BIND
  • Build an Internet server to manage sites, perform email and file transfers, and more
  • Set up an email service for a small-to-medium-sized site, complete with authentication
  • Install and configure Apache, PHP, and MySQL on a web server built from scratch
  • Combine computers into a load-balanced Apache web server cluster based on the free Linux Virtual Server
  • Set up local network services from distributed file systems to DHCP services, gateway services, print services, user management and more
  • Use Linux virtualization with Xen or VMWare to run multiple kernels on one piece of hardware; manage each kernel's access to processor time, devices, and memory
  • Create shell scripts and adapt them for your own needs
  • Back up and restore data with rsync, tar, cdrecord, Amanda, and MySQL tools

Linux System Administration is not only knowledgeable and practical, but convenient. The ingredients for this book had been scattered throughout mailing lists, forums, and discussion groups, as well as books, periodicals, and the experiences of colleagues. Everything is now in one handy guide. In the course of their research, the authors also solved many problems whose solutions were completely undocumented. They now pass their lessons on to you.



如果您是一位有經驗的系統管理員,希望獲得 Linux 技能,或者是一位面臨新挑戰的經驗豐富的 Linux 使用者,《Linux 系統管理》提供了管理各種 Linux 系統和伺服器的實用知識。本書總結了您建立獨立的 SOHO 中樞、網頁伺服器、區域網路伺服器,以及透過虛擬化整合的負載平衡叢集和伺服器所需的步驟。在此過程中,您將學習到設置和維護這些工作環境所需的所有工具。

Linux 現在是一個標準的企業平台,使用者數量達數億,但優秀的管理員卻供不應求。《Linux 系統管理》對於 Unix 老手、MCSE 和大型機管理員來說是理想的 Linux 入門書籍,對於現有的 Linux 管理員來說,則是一本高級(和複習)指南,他們希望能夠快速上手。在本書中,您將學習到如何:

- 設置獨立的 Linux 伺服器
- 使用 BIND 安裝、配置、維護和疑難排解 DNS 伺服器
- 構建一個用於管理網站、執行電子郵件和文件傳輸等功能的網際網路伺服器
- 為中小型網站設置電子郵件服務,包括身份驗證
- 從頭開始安裝和配置 Apache、PHP 和 MySQL 的網頁伺服器
- 基於免費的 Linux Virtual Server 將多台電腦組合成負載平衡的 Apache 網頁伺服器叢集
- 設置從分散式檔案系統到 DHCP 服務、閘道服務、列印服務、使用者管理等本地網路服務
- 使用 Xen 或 VMWare 的 Linux 虛擬化在一台硬體上運行多個核心;管理每個核心對處理器時間、設備和記憶體的存取
- 創建並根據自己的需求調整 shell 腳本
- 使用 rsync、tar、cdrecord、Amanda 和 MySQL 工具備份和還原資料

《Linux 系統管理》不僅知識豐富且實用,而且方便。這本書的內容散落在郵件列表、論壇、討論組以及書籍、期刊和同事的經驗中。現在,所有內容都集中在一本方便的指南中。在研究過程中,作者還解決了許多完全沒有記錄的問題。現在,他們將這些經驗傳授給您。
