The Novell Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) is a new certification for day-to-day administration of installed SUSE Linux Enterprise Server networks.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is a highly reliable, interoperable and manageable server operating system that enables firms to cost-effectively and securely deliver mission critical services. The Novell Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) is a new certification and provides the day-to-day administration of installed SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server networks.
This course will give you an understanding of the core elements of Linux system administration, including how to install and configure SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11, as well as how to configure networking, backup, printing, remote access, and how to perform various other common tasks that are part of day-to-day Linux administration. It also prepares you to achieve Novell Certified Linux Professional, for which you need to pass only one more exam.
CompTIA, Linux Professional Institute (LPI) and Novell together offer a chance to earn 3 Linux certifications:
A candidate while taking two exams - LX0-101 and LX0-102 of CompTIA Linux+ powered by LPI, can choose to have their exam record forwarded to the LPI. This enables candidates to become certified in LPIC-1 as well; and under the partnership agreement between Novell and LPI, those Linux professionals who have earned their LPIC-1 status will also have satisfied the requirements for the Novell Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) certification.
