This three-day course provides a follow-on from the Introduction to Solaris course for power users and administrators who wish to learn more of the general purpose Solaris/UNIX utilities, and be able to automate tasks by writing shell scripts using the Bourne, Korn and Bash shells. This course not only teaches you the utilities and programming skills, but also provides many examples of useful shell scripts. A further important aspect is that you will be able to readily interpret existing scripts. This course, combined with the Solaris Introduction course, provides preparation for the Oracle Certified Associate, Oracle Solaris 10 Operating System (1Z0-876, was CX-310-105) exam.
