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!

About Juliet Kemp

Juliet Kemp is a sysadmin and writer with extensive experience in wrangling whatever hardware and software is thrown at her, ever since she discovered that messing around with Linux was more fun than revising for finals. She has a deep belief that you can solve anything with the right script, and is slightly obsessive about documentation and backups.
