Minimum Skill for a System Admin

Hi Dudes,

Please help by advising me on

1. What are the minimum technical skills a fresh Linux System Admin should posses ?

2. In what way they could tuneup their skills ?

Regards,
Allwyn

Since I'm not a professional linux user, I cannot answer the first question, but I think the answer to the second question would be: play with it

I believe an administrator should tweak the systems to the max, to the point where they actually break. Then the admin needs to take a step back and figure out what went wrong, I believe that way he/she will understand how it works and how it should be configured for best use.

It's kinda rude to post the same question twice. It clutters up the forum, and as you can see, the same people who replied to you before are replying to you now.

This looks a lot like a "Sysadmin 101" homework question ('What are the daily roles and responsibilities of a systems administrator?'), and per our homework policy we're not allowed to just give you the entire answer, why don't you post what you think they are, and we can help augment that list.

(I'm also doubting you are really in this position as you would have 1) a boss telling you what to do, 2) system users asking you if you can set stuff up for them, and 3) have come from an entry-level position - which are usually in place so that people who are clueless aren't put in a position they can't handle yet)

If u think, this clutters the Forum, I apologize. And if this Forum has only Experts...., then I need to be here. Thank you
