(This course is 3 credit hours long.)
This course is a continuation of
CTS 1106 (Introduction to
The focus is hands-on Linux system administration.
Topics include system administration concepts, system installation
Additional topics include understanding the Unix filesystem,
configuring basic system hardware and services, managing user
accounts, basic system security, and backups.
Major Unix variants will also be covered.
This course continues with
CTS 2322 (Unix/Linux
Instructional Methodology: The class format will be lecture and discussion; class participation is strongly encouraged. Assignments will be mostly group programming projects. While some time will be provided in class, most assignments will require several hours per week outside of class.
|Objectives:|| The student will demonstrate a knowledge of the following
topics through objective tests, hands-on activities,
|Prerequisite:||CTS 1106, or Permission of the Instructor. Students enrolled in a degree or college credit certificate program must complete all prerequisites. Note! HCC registration computers may not check for prerequisites before allowing you to enroll. Be certain you have all required prerequisites or you won't have much of a chance of success. Also, you may be dropped from the class.|
|Canvas and Software:||The course materials are available online; you will need to have a computer
which meets the minimum requirements as stated in the Canvas Student Guide and
Internet access in order to complete the course.
You will need to use Zoom. While Zoom can be used from a web browser, I recommend installing Zoom on your computer. Download Zoom from Zoom.us. You can then read Zoom user guides. Be sure to keep your Zoom software up to date!
Students are responsible for accessing Canvas and Zoom and familiarizing themselves with navigation of the web site. The instructor is not responsible for the breakdown of technology including, but not limited to any of the following: inability to submit assignments, downtime of the Canvas server, operating system breakdowns, incompatible software, Internet connections; nor any personal challenges you may face while dealing with the 'online' delivery system.
In the past, HCC provided each student with a removable disk they could use for the whole semester. Since the class no longer meets on-campus, adjustments will have to be made for the projects. For our course, you can use an old computer to install Linux. For most of us, it is more convenient setup a virtual machine and install Linux on that. This is what your instructor uses. (A dual-boot setup is also possible. While not recommended, a dual-boot setup does have the advantage that you can examine real hardware, a useful skill.)
|HCC Facilities and Resources:||
A class “wiki” has been set up for your use, at YborStudent.hccfl.edu/UnixWiki/. To add or modify any content, you must create a login for yourself. Use an account name that clearly indicates your real name; avoid account names such as “The Linuxator”. You can use this wiki to hold discussions, ask questions, and contribute information to the collaborative study guide. You can create your personal page(s) to hold your system journal or class notes. (All content on the wiki, including personal user pages, are publicly readable, and must adhere to HCC policies.)
You can use HawkNet (WebAdvisor) to obtain your final grade for the course. You can use your assigned Hawkmail (Hawkmail365) email address or use Canvas, if you wish to discuss your grades via email. (Note, it may be possible to setup your Hawkmail account to forward all received emails to some outside email account; but you still must send mail from your official HCC account to discuss grades.)
Most college systems now (or will in the future) use a single sign-on user ID, known as HCC “NetID”. Visit netid.hccfl.edu to register and to update your credentials. (Your initial password is your uppercase first name initial, lowercase last name initial, and your seven digit student ID number.) Note, the quickest way to resolve login issues is the HCC Live Web Portal (hcclive.hccfl.edu).
The college provides wireless network connections for students and guests
on Dale Mabry campus.
For students, select the network
Hawk Alert text messaging service allows you to receive important information regarding campus closures or emergencies. You may also sign up for financial aid notifications and registration and payment deadlines. This is a free service, although some fees may be applied by your cellular service provider or plan for text messages. For more information, visit https://www.hccfl.edu/support-services/hawk-alert.
Computers are located in the Dale Mabry campus computer science department open lab, in DTEC–462. Lab hours are:

Some tutoring services for some courses are offered: CGS-1000 Intro to Computers and Tech, CET-1172C PC Upgrade and Repair-Hardware, CET-1174C PC Upgrade and Repair-Software, CET-1600 Cisco Network Fundamentals, CET-1610 Cisco Router Technology, CTS-1303 Microsoft Beginning Server I, and CTS-1106 Intro to UNIX/Linux.
Rules for Using HCC Facilities
HCC's Student Assistance Program (SAP) offers resources tailored to student life, providing you with the right tools to help you through some of life's toughest challenges. The college has contracted Baycare Health Management to provide free, professional, confidential counseling by telephone and in person. A wide range of topics may be addressed through this program, including mental health counseling, budgeting, and financial concerns. Please call 800-878-5470 or send email to email@example.com for further information.
A=90-100, B=80-89, C=70-79, D=65-69,
(Collaborating on the class wiki counts as up to 5 points extra credit, as does active class participation. See below for details.)
Projects will be assigned from the class web page at various times.
You will have sufficient time to complete the projects,
at least a week but usually two or more weeks.
Currently, all projects in this course are designated as group projects.
You should work together in small (two to four people) groups on projects,
and the names of all who worked together must be listed.
Projects in system administration require you to have root (administrator) access to you own computer. This means a computer or a virtual computer that you can mess up and reformat as needed. Typically you will do most of the work on projects outside of regular class hours, however some class time will be devoted to group work on projects.
Projects are graded on the following scale:
A = 95% (Excellent: Good design with good comments, style, and extras)
Minor extras worth +5 points, minor omissions or poor design worth -5.
Projects are not graded when turned in. They are graded all at once, sometime after the project deadline has passed (usually the following weekend). Every effort will be make to grade projects within a week of the due date, or as soon thereafter as possible. (See also submitting assignments below.)
Extra credit can be earned by updating the study guide on the
with a substantial contribution based on the material covered
in class, from assigned readings, or from other resources you
A substantial contribution means adding new material,
adding references (links), or elaborating (or correcting) some
You should use
wiki formatting and not HTML formatting when
possible, and be sure to spell-check your work.
The wiki will automatically send to your instructor an email for each
update, so there is no need to add your name to your contribution.
However, you must ensure you use a wiki account name that reflects your
real name, or the instructor won't know who did what.
Your instructor is the editor and moderator of this study guide (and for all material posted on this wiki site). While some time will be given for students to correct postings, in order to ensure an accurate study guide the instructor may edit, add to, or remove material posted by students.
The wiki assignment will be graded on or after the following week (so you have through the weekend to post something for the previous week). Your contributions will be graded based on correctness, completeness, and clarity. Note regular posting is required to earn extra credit; one large post the last week of the term will not earn much (or any) extra credit.
Submit your projects to the correct dropbox on Canvas.
Remember to include the names of fellow students you worked with.
In the event a student submits more than once for the same assignment, I will ignore all but the last one received up to the deadline. Assignments submitted after the deadline will not count toward your grade except as allowed by the course late policy. Also, you cannot resubmit an assignment once it has been graded.
Always keep a copy of your submitted projects, until you are certain they have been received and the grade recorded correctly.
