                        UNIX System Administration

This course presents material covering various aspects of operating and
managing a UNIX system, including:

        -  file system backup and recovery
        -  adding new users
        -  system accounting
        -  system startup and shutdown
        -  system configuration and performance
        -  networking considerations

Examples in this course will be taken from the 4 Bsd version of UNIX (on
which Ultrix-32 is based), but most of the material presented is broadly
applicable to other versions such as AT&T's System V, Version 7, Digital's
V7M11 (now Ultrix-11).

Prerequisites:  This tutorial is aimed at "system administrators"
responsible for some flavor of UNIX.

Instructors:  Ed Gould, Bob Kridle, and Vance Vaughn are founders of mt
Xinu, a Berkeley company dedicated to the distribution and support of UNIX
for VAX computers.  Between them, they have been running UNIX systems for
over eighteen years.
