The labs will be taught in English. During the labs, you will set up common services like mail server, web server, file server, or a monitoring system using the Linux operating system. Labs are obligatory to pass 100%. Grading occurs automatically in real-time. Each lab has a set of tasks critical to fulfill (mainly configure the services mentioned above). The automatic system checks the correctness and validity and grades the students. The grading table is private and unique for each student, as it is requires personal certificate to access the corresponding web page (further information will be announced). The lab assistant is always there to:
- Announce the lab topic
- Have overview-talk about the lab topic
- Show the Best-Practices in respect to lab topic
- Answer question about the lab material/configuration
- Announce correct solutions for the most difficult tasks
- Tasks difficulty is estimated by overall performance of the group
Accessing the lab machines requires personal lab account, which will be activated for everybody during the first lab. Hence visiting the first lab is critical to obtain the lab account. Once lab account is obtained, it can be used to access any machine in the lab. Account contains 50Gb of personal space. This space is meant for storing the lab instances as well as the backups (by lab instance we mean a snapshot of individual Linux installation students suppose to configure during the labs).
There is a possibility to solve the lab tasks outside of the class facility using your personal machines. Remote access requires:
- Additional software installed in personal machines:
- <will be announced>
- Personal Certificate <further information will be announced> to access the class network
- Lab account to access your personal data over the network
