Thanks to the ongoing efforts of thousands of Linux developers, Linux is more ready than ever for deployment at the frontlines of the real world. The authors of this book know that terrain well, and I am happy to leave you in their most capable hands.

Since 2001, Linux Administration Handbook has been the definitive resource for every Linux system administrator who must efficiently solve technical problems and maximize the reliability and performance of a production environment. Now, the authors have systematically updated this classic guide to address todays most important Linux distributions and most powerful new administrative tools.
The authors spell out detailed best practices for every facet of system administration, including storage management, network design and administration, web hosting, software configuration management, performance analysis, Windows interoperability, and much more. Sysadmins will especially appreciate the thorough and up-to-date discussions of such difficult topics such as DNS, LDAP, security, and the management of IT service organizations.
Linux Administration Handbook, Second Edition, reflects the current versions of these leading distributions:
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux
- Fedora Core
- SUSE Linux Enterprise
- Debian GNU/Linux
- Ubuntu Linux
Sharing their war stories and hard-won insights, the authors capture the behavior of Linux systems in the real world, not just in ideal environments. They explain complex tasks in detail and illustrate these tasks with examples drawn from their extensive hands-on experience.
