01. Login to server X as root.
02. Create an archive of /etc using gzip compression. Save the file as

your desktop X machine.
04. Extract the compressed archive to /backup on desktop X.

14. Run the following command as student, and redirect both STDOUT and STDERR to
the /tmp/all.txt file.
15. Sort the /etc/passwd file and send it to the default printer

17. a. What is its current IP Address?
b. What is its current CIDR subnet mask?

18. Run the first script to mis-configure your networking:
19. Symptom: A web browser is unable to access the web page at
20. Apply the three steps: TEST, CHECK, FIX to identify and resolve the problem.
21. Run the second script to mis-configure your networking:
22. Symptom: A web browser is unable to access the web page at
23. Apply the three steps: TEST, CHECK, FIX to identify and resolve the3 problem.
24. Create a new partition and ext4 file system that is 400 MB in size. The file
system should persistently mount under /data.
25. Persistently and a swap partition that is 200 MB in size.
26. Create a volume group called vg1 of 500 MB on serverX.
Create a logical volume called lv1 of 200 MB on vg1.
Format the logical volume with ext4 and mount it under /data.
27. Create a group called sysadmin.
Create two users called u1 and u2 and set the password to redhat.
sysadmin should be the secondary group of u1 and u2.
Create another user called guest who is not a member of sysadmin and who
should not have any login shell.
28. Create a directory called /database whose group owner should be sysadmin.
Sysadmin group member should have full access on /database and others should
have no access on it.
29. Schedule a cron job for u1, so that a disk free report is mailed to u2 every

30. You will now set up the automounter to automatically mount an NFS export on a
specified direct5ory on demand.
• The NFS server is instructor.example.com
• The NFS export on the server is /var/ftp/pub
• The automatic mount point on your station should be /server/public
• Use an indirect map (not /net) to implement this
• Validate that the automount works by changing directory to the mount point and accessing the files in the share.
Perform the following steps:
1. Create/modify autofs service configuration files.
2. Reload the automounter.
3. Access the share.
31. Using ACLs to Grant and Limit Access
This lab uses users and groups created earlier on server X. If you do not
already have the users and groups defined, run lab-add-users on server X.
Graduate students need a collaborative directory titled /opt/research,
where they can store generated research results. Only members of the groups
profs and grads should be able to create new files in the directory, and new
files should have the following properties:
• The directory should be owned by user root.
• New files should be group owned by the group grads.
• Professors (members of the group profs) should automatically have read/write access to new files.
• Summer interns (members of the group interns) should automatically have read-only access to new files.
• Other users (not a member of groups profs, grads, or interns) should not be able to access the directory and its contents at all.
