We need to create a private directory for a group of engineers doing system administration. We must create a group named “sysadmin” for the engineers name esha, meena, and reena.They will want to share files in the /home/admin directory. how do i do this?

Yeah, this is a typical homework or an RHCE exercise.
It is for you to prepare. Why not do it yourself and then come here and ask if you stumble upon something specific.
If if you think this is rude reply then read LQ RULES.

This should be helpful as well

The only problem is it's not the question that isn't smart... however that's a nice link. It does look a hell of alot like homework. Ya know I wouldn't even mind helping people with their linux homework if what they are asking for was advice or being pointed in the right direction and not the usual pretend I work for a company and pass along the very textbook question that our lecturer's asked us to research and answer.

Let me advise ya on this one sabahh...

If this is homework/assignments/essays then most collages/universities can quite easily ask similar questions in exams and if you didn't do the work yourself when it gets asked in the test it becomes strange your suddenly unable to answer it. Also LQ's time of any given post appearing on google is rather short and by the time a lecturer realises that it doesn't look like your own work and research. Well they may copy and paste your answer into google and hit LQ.

As it goes this is not a very hard task and I suspect some of the fastest learners around might be able to figure the entire thing out in a good half an hour... but it depends on how well you already know linux and how well you have learnt it in your linux/unix classes. If your administrating a unix/linux server in a professional enviroment and don't already know how to answer this question then this would be troubling as any unix/linux administrator worth their salt would know the answer to this off of the top of their heads.

It is undoubtedly either a homework given to OP by his tutor or an exercise from RHCE class. Those name OP mentioned are typically asian names that I would usually find out in my RH certification exercises.
And the question is from the RHCT track for user administration.( I hope I am right on this, its been more than 3 years that I gave the exam ).

Am I right in think that this was also one of the easier questions? Since RHCE and RHCT are meant for people that have actually had some experience with Red Hat right? and this isn't that challanging of a question for what I'd expect of such a qualification. I was trying to get the company I work for to fund me an RHCT but seemily nothing came of it as soon as the recession hit tho...

This was definitely one of the easier questions. I do not know if most of the people taking RHCE or RHCT have prior experience or knowledge of Linux. But I have seen a lot of people (now including you) who have got enough experience and more than enough knowledge of Linux, but do not have the certification.
Anyhow, but just a thought, why not attempt RHCE instead of RHCT? You would anyhow pass it.

Slightly funny that on checking the Red Hat site, they actually have a chart on their rhce page of what you should do with what level of experience. I am sure their are still a couple of things I still need to learn before being able to take the the RHCE exam, I'll probably have to look into it at some point soon and look into the RH300 training course. Tho I suspect it might cost some money.

They do have put a lot of things in the page and you need to know the things before you take the exam but the questions do not test in depth knowledge and most of them are quite basic. I doubt if you will need a course for it now with some good knowledge and experience. You would need money though. ;-)

It now seems that OP has left with two of us discussing something that might not look relevant to the original question to most of members.

Ah yes, quite true. Still atleast something constructive came out of the thread. However guess we better leave it to rest in peace. Thanks for the advice anyways!
