Description - Essential System Administration by Aeleen Frisch

This is a guide for Unix system administration, covering all the fundamental and essential tasks required to run such divergent Unix systems as AIX, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, Tru64 and more. It provides a clear guide to the real-world issues that anyone responsible for a Unix system faces daily. This edition has been fully updated for all the latest operating systems. It has been revised and expanded to consider the current system administrative topics that administrators need most. The book covers: DHCP, USB devices, the latest automation tools, SNMP and network management, LDAP, PAM, and recent security tools and techniques. It discusses the underlying higher-level concepts, but it also provides the details of the procedures needed to carry them out. It is not organized around the features of the Unix operating system, but around the various facets of a system administrator's job. It describes all the usual administrative tools that Unix provides, but it also shows how to use them intelligently and efficiently.
