About the test:

The test will be in ENGLISH – there is NO GERMAN VERSION.

LPIC1 is two tests (101-400 and 102-400) that you take (probably) at two different days.

It is 60 questions each and you have 90minutes each.

Maximum score is 800, so you can get 13 Points for every question.

Passing score is 500 (63%)

You will need to register and get an LPI-ID from https://cs.lpi.org/caf/Xamman/register

you can contact LPI at: info@lpi.org

PS: The test is not easy – 10 years of (apt, yum, rpm) Linux experience will help you more than any brain dumps. But well yes – brain dumps from last year might help you with 10-20% of the questions.

Objectives/Umfang/Anforderungen:

work through those objectives: Order: Depends – if you have enough time:

  • work through topics starting with most important
  • when finished – repeat the most important topics

if you do not have enough time:

  • work through topics starting with least important – finish with most important – to have the most important knowledge most fresh/present

in any case:

  • do all relevant most recent braindumps that can be found

(ordered after weight, weight = more questions on that topic will be asked)

Books in German/Bücher:

die LPIC Prüfungen werden immer wieder überarbeitet – scheinbar zuletzt 2015 (!?) so schreibt jedenfalls das Buch „Sicher zur erfolgreichen Linux-Zertifizierung“ von Harald Maaßen von 2016

Der CD liegt eine HTML-Basierte Examens-Test-Trainingssoftware bei – welche echt cool gemacht ist und wunderbar funktioniert.

Allerdings ist die Aktualität der Fragen fraglich.

Ausserdem habe ich dort einen Fehler entdeckt: z.B. nice -14 startet prozess mit niceness level 14, aber renice -14 setzt tatsächlich die niceness auf -14.

renice -15 1858
1858 (process ID) old priority 0, new priority -15
kleinere zahl = höhere priorität

heute wäre das alles /dev/sda… aber okay es sind ja IDE controller 😉

… auch werden die antworten nicht in randomisierter Reihenfolge ausgegeben… was einen „Auswendig-lern“ Effekt nach sich zieht.

Spitzfindige Beispielfrage: (welche aber so jedenfalls in 101-400 bei mir nicht dran kam)

Was bewirkt das folgende Kommando?
bla | tee blubb fasel

    • Die Ausgabe von bla wird von tee in die Datei blubb fasel geschrieben und außerdem auf der Standardausgabe geliefert
    • Die erste Hälfte der Ausgabe von bla wird nach blubb geschrieben, die zweite nach fasel
    • Die Ausgabe von bla wird von tee in die Dateien (PLURAL) blubb und fasel geschrieben und außerdem auf der Standardausgabe geliefert
    • Gar nichts; tee erlaubt nur einen Parameter

This two day course is a condensed and intensive version of our soon to be offered full four-day class.

SDN (Software Defined Networking) abstracts networking infrastructure away from the actual physical equipment. This allows network system administrators to maintain the networking environment across mulitple vendors and hardware, and operating systems and versions.

OpenDaylight is an open networking platform that enables SDN and constructs a solid foundation for NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) for all network sizes.
