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.

This how to describes an easy step by step installation of the Red Hat Cluster Suite on 3 centos nodes and prepare them as nodes of a cluster. You will also install the Management suite which is web based and is known as Conga.
You will use 3 nodes to form the cluster and 1 node as the cluster management node and as a cluster node it will not take part. All the nodes and the management node should be resolvable either by host file entries or by DNS.
These BASH script set have been written with the purpose of making the administration of VSFTPD virtual users easy, like creation, deletion, update. The scripts assume that pam_userdb is being used for Authentication along with local shell users.
The Scripts are very customizable with a single .conf file and can be used in internal VLAN office scenarios and in small to medium Production servers which face the internet.
vuserchk - checks the necessary files...
Basic Linux system auditing is a bit tricky and data collected and information of that is out of place and readability is not that good. Recently this lead me to put together a Open Source code project and develop simple BASH scripts that do the job nicely.
The code and tar ball can be downloaded from both google code or from source forge website's and the project website has links to documentation, help, installation and code.

Getting on with system administration means to have a constant security aware work flow. I have written a simple script to generate a fairly complex password. By default it creates a 8 character length. If a length is given then it can be between 9-32. Anything above 32 is truncated to 32 characters and anything less than 9 is defaulted to 8.
On a day to day work load, starting one with simple task to complex multiple tasks, IT System Administrators and all other personnel who look after the IT Data Centre and IT Infrastructure, sometimes find that they have to run a multiple command set, that to for simple information. In recent times the Desktop GUI and the relative backend tools that make the Linux System have advanced well, but for remote system administration, unlike Windows where RDT can be used, Sysadmin's prefer a shell and a...
