Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm fairly new to Linux and have been tasked with editing a user's .bash_profile file. I haven't received much instructions around how to actually do this but the scenario is that we are trying to query our AD servers but some of the hosted accounts are setup as "referrals" and our application does not support a referral from AD by default. To allow this, I need to specify that our user account will follow any AD based referral by adding the Context.REFERRAL = follow to the .bash_profile file.
Noone seems to understand the syntax that is required in order for this to work. Do I just simply add Context.REFERRAL = follow anywhere in the file? Should is say export Context.REFERRAL = follow? I've tried a bunch of different combos but none of them seem to work ( I get logon errors saying that the command is not found when I sudo to that user).
I've tried using the following options in the file:
1. export Context.REFERRAL = follow
2. export Context.REFERRAL=follow
3. export Context.REFERRAL= follow
4. Context.REFERRAL = follow
Any ideas? I apologize if this is in the wrong locations but thank you all for assistance!
