Lab Questions

Lab 1

For this lab, you’ll need a partner. The first steps will set up the lab for that person. To prepare this lab, take the following steps:
1.
Log in as the root user.

2.
Open /etc/inittab in a text editor.

3.
Change the default runlevel to 0.

4.
Save your changes.

5.
Power down the computer. Pass the system to your partner. Tell your partner that the problem should appear when the computer boots into Linux.

*************************************************

6.
Now that your partner has set up this system for you, power on the computer and boot into Linux. What happens? What do you see? What can you do?

Lab 2

For this lab, let your partner set up your computer for you.

*************************************************

Now you’ll set up this system for your partner using the following steps.

1.
If you’ve configured your RHEL system on VMware, make sure you have a current snapshot. It’s invaluable if your partner is unable to solve this problem.

2.
Boot into your partner’s system normally.

3.
Open the /etc/fstab configuration file. There should be a line associated with the /boot directory, similar to:

  LABEL=/boot   /boot   ext3   defaults   1 2

4.
Change the line, introducing a typo, as shown:

  LABEL=boot   /boot   ext3   defaults   1 2

5.
Power down the system, and tell your partner to boot the system.

*************************************************

6.
Now that your partner has set up this system for you, power on the computer and boot into Linux. What happens? What do you see? What can you do?
