It would depend on the company you apply. What all server or work is performed there. Relatively you will have to perform the duties.

The role will vary on the no. of users in the network or how many network you will have to handle with respect to the server.

Hit a search for openings as linux admin and you will see the requirements of different companies through which you can get a rough idea of all the work which a level 1 linux admin has to perform.

first thing is look out for seniors around you working on linux platform to gain an idea of what a level 1 engineer does.

then as I said earlier look out for resumes of senior admins and the roles and responsibility they have been handling through which you will come to find out about the works which are performed inside a company

there are hell lots of problems which no one can write here so better to go through the thread and see the problems which users face.
I believe this types of blogs are the best way to gain experience in troubleshooting by helping others. Once you find about the issue search for the solution in google and if you are able to ovefcme those problems just keep everything in mind.


It is not dreams which will make you perfect, It is practice and experience which will help you in the long run

Code:

look for a opportunity AND NOT FOR A PAY SCALE
I don't think any company as a fresher will even allow you to touch the server.

I'll also add that even with certification you will need to demonstrate skills specific to the employer. Make yourself familiar with sendmail/postfix/dns/apache as a minimum. nagios is also a good start point as many companies have monitoring. For the company I'm with STRONG bash scripting skills are necessary as there is a lot of data transfer, also here iptables and ipsec VPN understanding are necessary.

I agree scripting and iptables are the main thing which I must admit I am very weak at so still learning.


I would say use a workstation and mess with it at the maximum extent so that you can come up with issues and try to fix them and if you find any issue here members are always willing to help you at their best.


Best of Luck.

I'd take it even further and install several virtual servers, that way it's possible to set up one as a monitoring server and monitor the others, set up VPNs between them, set up MySQL replication, etc. etc. I'd also recommend that people learn to use the command line as much as possible as "real world" servers will rarely allow you to use a graphical console.

Here we have a load a servers and virtual servers but for the most part when I'm trying anything new I use the 4 virtual instances I have on my local (windows 7) workstation first before even thinking about trying it on test or production servers.

I think that would be too much for a starter

Initially configuring simple server like samba, dhcp etc and learning basic system administration monitoring tools is better.

once after getting an experience it is better to move over vpn server and using mysql database.
