The job of Linux
systems administrator is interrupt-driven and requires constant learning in byte-wise chunks. This book gives solutions to modern problems-even some you might not have heard of-such as scripting LDAP, making Mac
clients play nice with Linux
servers, and backup, security, and recovery scripts. Author Juliet Kemp takes a broad approach to scripting using Perl
and bash, and all scripts work on Debian or Red Hat lineage distributions. Plus, she dispenses wisdom about time management, dealing with desperate colleagues, and how to avoid reinventing the wheel!
