Gain Linux administration skills by learning new networking concepts in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is the most popular Linux distribution currently being used and can be deployed on many platforms. Enterprises that have a large number of systems need to be interconnected, configured, and managed effectively. RHEL networking lets you accomplish these tasks easily.
This is a highly-detailed guide to help with your deployments on RHEL 7 or CentOS 7. This book, based on RHEL 7.1, will introduce to you the fundamentals of networking your systems. You will learn the use of new consistent names to identify your network cards. Soon, you will move on to configuring the basic plumbing of your network, setting up time, network address assignment, and name resolution. Last, the focus moves to configuring the new kernel-based iSCSI target services on RHEL 7 and using the service to host storage area networks.
