The LPIC-2 Linux Engineer (201-450) course is designed for IT Professionals who are seeking the LPIC-2 certification. The course covers skills required of any intermediate to advanced systems administrator who is tasked with supporting Linux in a production environment. Topics covered include: capacity planning, kernel maintenance, startup and recovery methods, advanced storage configurations, network connectivity, and systems maintenance. This course is accompanied by the 202-450 course which combine to cover the LPIC-2 exam.

You're watching ITProTV. [BLANK_AUDIO] Hello, thank you for choosing ITProTV, I am Zach and this is Don and we're very excited. We're excited, aren't we? >> Absolutely, I've been looking forward to this one for a while. >> This is LPIC-2 Linux, Engineer and we're gonna talk a little bit about the course here. Before we get going though, I've worked with Don a few times on Linux courses, and it's always great to work with you. Tell us little bit about yourself too Don. >> All right, so I'm Don Pizet, I'm co founder and educator here at ITProTV. And I have been working with Linux since the mid 1990s, I've used it in production environments, in the insurance and financial industries and have found it to be an incredibly robust and reliable platform that has, really become my favorite operating system over the decades. >> Don likes Linux and I do too. And, tell you what? What's in it for the learner, what's in it for the person who's watching our course? >> All right, well this is an advanced course, we're gonna dig into some deep stuff, under the hood in Linux that normal people don't have to worry about. So, if you've ever found yourself with a Linux system that was running slow, that wouldn't boot, that had some kind of issue, and you said, you know what, I'm just gonna format and reinstall. Well, wouldn't have been nice if you could actually find what that problem was? To attune the system, to make it perform at peak levels? Well, that's the stuff that we're gonna learn here. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of the way that Linux operates and how you can influence the things that it does even with things that are behind the scenes that you wouldn't normally know about. >> So let's get a little more granular here. What are the course goals? How is the course actually chunked, if you will? Because there'll be several episodes of course. >> Sure. >> Of course. >> So our goal is to empower you through engaging learning, right? We want you to be better at the task that you perform and more proficient with Linux. And we're gonna achieve that by talking about a number of things. So, some of the topics are gonna focus on performance monitoring. So, how do you know if your CPU utilization, memory disk, I/O all of those things are at acceptable levels for your environment? And what can you do to fix that? We'll see, focusing on the kernel, we'll learn how to compile a kernel and actually build a custom one, again, designed to improve our systems operation. We'll talk about advanced storage technologies, including SANs, we'll get into recovering systems that have damaged boot loaders. We're gonna take a look at advanced networking, wireless networks and so on, all the different aspects that we need to make a Linux system perform at peak functionality. >> So Don is this course tied to a certification? >> It is, so, LPIC-2 stands for the Linux Professional Institute Certification 2, which is their Linux Engineer certification. >> Right. >> So this shows a more advanced minimum intermediate knowledge of working with Linux systems. And this course is being designed around the exam objectives for the first of the LPIC-2 certification exams. So this one is built around exam 201-450. That's important to know, because to get your LPIC-2 certification, you need to pass both exams. This is just the first one. So be sure, if you're going for that cert, to check out the second show that we're doing to cover the second exam, we're covering the first block. >> This is very important stuff then. So why are you excited about this course? I know that's kind of redundant, but why are you excited? >> I'm excited for this course, one, because I love Linux, right? So, it's my favorite operating system to work with. But the other thing is, I've worked with Linux so long, that I've acquired a lot of weird fringe knowledge that I never get to use. And in this course we cover some of that, right? So, most people don't have to rebuild their bootloader, most people don't have to monitor CPU utilization over a period of time and create some kind of trend. People don't normally do that stuff. And here's my chance to talk about it. So it'll be a lot of fun. >> Wow, well, I can't wait, LPIC-2, it's gonna be a wonderful course. We invite you to join us. You'll be glad you did. Bye, bye for now. >> Thank you for watching ITProTV.. [BLANK_AUDIO]
