Red Hat Enterprise Deployment and Systems Management – RH401 teaches how to install Red Hat Satellite server and use it to deploy and manage systems. Red Hat Enterprise Deployment and Systems Management explores the concepts and methods necessary for successful large-scale deployment and management of Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems.

Course overview

Students will learn how to install and use Red Hat Satellite server with enhanced entitlements reporting to deploy and manage systems. By the end of this course, students will have built their own RPM packages and will have used Subversion to manage changes to files.

This training will prepare you for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Enterprise Deployment and Systems Management exam – EX401. After passing EX401 you will become Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Deployment and Systems Management. This certification is part of the Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) path and EX401 can be recognized as one of the five required exams.

This course is related to Red Hat Satellite 5. If you would like to train on version 6, see our Red Hat Satellite 6 Administration (RH403) course.
