Cant find Virtual Machines for book by Michael Jang


Could anyone tell me where I can get the three virtual machines with the examples for this book:

RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification Practice Exams with Virtual Machines (Exams EX200 & EX300)
By: Michael Jang

I have no CD as I am using an ebook from safari books for which I have paid a monthly subscription. The ebook states that there is a web page on the publishers site (McGraw Hill) where the compressed VMs can be dowloaded. I have searched the book and the net for hours and still find no trace of them.

Also it would be great if someone could suggest another resource where I could get experience doing labs or tutorials configuring\networking with virtual machines. At this stage I'm still novice but would like to get experience of using httpd and securing the system.

Thanks

Crusty

I don't see them available without a specific link (contact them) or the DVD or CD that comes with the book but you can probably just download Linux ISOs and run Vitualbox or what the book specifies and build your own VMs plus examples?

Plus demos: https://access.redhat.com/site/downloads/

A monthly subscription for a $40 book+media doesn't seem right?

As far as I can see at the min one of the VMs is configured as a DNS and another as a file share. Not sure about the third but I would like to know how to make that VM- I guess in the meantime I can try out your suggestion of trying to make my own vms- this will be difficult as I have no clue yet how to configure DNS or file share. I was hoping to look at the supplied vms so that I could work out how to do this myself.

The subscription is only about $10 a month and for that I can checkout 5 books per month so i figure that's reasonable enough.

Set up your own vm's, the key is being able to solve problems.

Could try contacting customer.service@mcgraw-hill.com to see if they have a link but since you did not buy? Worth a shot tho also: http://www.mheducation.com/contact/service-and-support
and http://www.mhprofessional.com/produc...sbn=007180160X

All that stuff you have to learn anyway and hands on is best plus it's all there in Linux ready to configure check the first link in my signature.
