The Linux Foundation’s New Training Bundle to Increase Career Mobility for SysAdmins

New course and certification bundle to accelerate opportunities for
advanced Linux learning among career technologists

SAN FRANCISCO, May 12, 2016 – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit advancing professional open source management for mass collaboration, today announced the availability of its new course, LFS211 Advanced Linux System Administration and Networking. The course provides the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed as a senior Linux sysadmin, as well as to pass the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer (LFCE) exam, which comes bundled with the new course.

The 2016 Open Source Jobs Report, produced by The Linux Foundation and Dice, finds that 51 percent of hiring managers say hiring certified professionals is a priority for them, and 47 percent of open source professionals plan to take at least one certification exam this year. Certifications are increasingly becoming the best way for professionals to differentiate from other job candidates and to demonstrate their ability to perform critical technical functions.

“More individuals and more employers are seeing the tremendous value in certifications, but it can be time-consuming and cost-prohibitive to prepare for them,” said Linux Foundation General Manager for Training Clyde Seepersad. “The Linux Foundation strives to increase accessibility to quality training and certification for anyone, and offering advanced system administration training and certification that can be accessed anytime, anywhere, for a lower price than the industry standard helps to achieve that.”

With the tremendous growth in open source adoption across technology sectors, it is more important than ever for IT professionals to be proficient in Linux. With the recent embrace by Microsoft of Linux on Azure, every major cloud platform is now based on or, as is the case for Azure, runs Linux. Similarly, OpenStack - one of the leading cloud platforms, for which The Linux Foundation also offers a course to prepare for the new Certified OpenStack Administrator exam - is deployed on Linux. Sysadmins of all stripes today need to be familiar with Linux, and the type of training provided by this course confers the knowledge and skills necessary to manage these systems.

LFS211 serves as preparation for the advanced LFCE exam in the way LFS201 Essentials of System Administration serves as preparation for the Linux Foundation Certified SysAdmin (LFCS) exam. Students in the new course will have access to 40-50 hours of coursework, and over 50 hands-on labs, which includes practical experience that translates to real-world situations. Becoming LFCE certified provides individuals who are more established or advanced in their IT careers the opportunity to progress further and demonstrate their knowledge. Sysadmins who pass the LFCE exam have a wider range and greater depth of skill than the LFCS. Linux Foundation Certified Engineers are responsible for the design and implementation of system architecture and serve as subject matter experts and mentors for the next generation of system administration professionals.

Individuals interested in registering for LFS211 can do so at for the introductory price of $349, including access to the course material for one year, and a voucher to take the LFCE exam up to two times. For more information on Linux Foundation training and certification programs, visit

With the Raspberry Pi 2 there’s a host of options to choose from for the required accessories needed to get started. Just basics like power, wifi and storage. I’ve spent months of research and testing to ensure that I don’t waste time having to replace accessories till I find the best ones.

Getting systemd access on /dev through ssh - I have a HTPC setup that I access remotely through SSH. My user has the proper privileges and /dev has proper permissions. When I login to the HTPC through its WM slim. I can access the /dev devices. But if I login through SSH I can no longer access devices on /dev. The main issue with this is I can't run some applications and no emulators. I verified that SSH for this user is not locked to specific commands only. What am I m...
