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! * Learn how to love LDAP scripting and NFS tuning * Make Perl serve you: don't be enslaved by Perl * Learn to change, craft, and feel empowered by recipes that change your life What you'll learn * Centralize your network using LDAP and NFS * Speak the language of different file systems * Know when to use Perl or when to stick to sed and awk * Treat security concerns with Perl, bash, and intelligence * Learn how to trace errant system calls and misbehaving colleagues Who this book is for System administrators in need of quick succor and guidance when interruptions prevent the smooth running of a network.
