VIEWS: 3,517 PAGES: 60

Introduction The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. openSUSE creates one of the world's best Linux distributions, working together in an open, transparent and friendly manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community. The latest release, openSUSE 11.3, features new and massively improved versions of all useful server and desktop applications. It comes with more than 1,000 open source applications. The openSUSE distribution is a stable, easy to use and complete multi-purpose distribution. It is aimed for users and developers working on desktop or server. It's great for beginners, experienced users and ultra geeks, short it's perfect for everybody! openSUSE is also the base for Novell's award-winning SUSE Linux Enterprise products. Hands-on Labs Session In this Hands-on Lab session, you’ll learn how to setup virtual network on VMware (you may also use any other virtual machines like MS VirtualPC, Linux Xen, or VirtualBox from Oracle). In this lab session, we’ll concentrate on installing Linux OpenSUSE 11.3 Server which you can then later use to install any other applications as desired. You will learn how to pre-install DNS server, LAMP server, Mail server, OpenSSL server, PostgreSQL database, Tomcat Java Server during the initial system installation. I’ll also show you how set static IP address and how to change hostname. You will also learn how to deploy LAMP; PostgreSQL, DNS server, Postfix mail server with Dovecot for POP3/IMAP, Evolution mail client, SquirrelMail email Web access and Webmin to help you with administrating and configuring other application servers like Apache2, MySQL, FTP, DNS etc. You’ll also have opportunity to learn some troubleshooting techniques and also do some lab assignments at the end of the lab session.

Introduction
The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. openSUSE
creates one of the world's best Linux distributions, working together in an open, transparent and friendly
manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community. The latest release,
openSUSE 11.3, features new and massively improved versions of all useful server and desktop
applications. It comes with more than 1,000 open source applications.

The openSUSE distribution is a stable, easy to use and complete multi-purpose distribution. It is aimed for
users and developers working on desktop or server. It's great for beginners, experienced users and ultra
geeks, short it's perfect for everybody! openSUSE is also the base for Novell's award-winning SUSE Linux
Enterprise products.

Hands-on Labs Session
In this Hands-on Lab session, you’ll learn how to setup virtual network on VMware (you may also use any
other virtual machines like MS VirtualPC, Linux Xen, or VirtualBox from Oracle). In this lab session, we’ll
concentrate on installing Linux OpenSUSE 11.3 Server which you can then later use to install any other
applications as desired. You will learn how to pre-install DNS server, LAMP server, Mail server, OpenSSL
server, PostgreSQL database, Tomcat Java Server during the initial system installation. I’ll also show you
how set static IP address and how to change hostname. You will also learn how to deploy LAMP;
PostgreSQL, DNS server, Postfix mail server with Dovecot for POP3/IMAP, Evolution mail client,
SquirrelMail email Web access and Webmin to help you with administrating and configuring other
application servers like Apache2, MySQL, FTP, DNS etc. You’ll also have opportunity to learn some
troubleshooting techniques and also do some lab assignments at the end of the lab session.


Part 1: Install OpenSUSE 11.3 Server


Step 1: Install and Configure Suse 11.3
