Its usage extends from hosting websites and applications to being the core operating system in smart devices like smartphones, tablets, and TVs.

Linux constitutes 4 basic components:

Kernel: This is the core of the Linux system. It's responsible for interacting with the hardware components and ensuring the operating system communicates with hardware devices.

Shell: A shell is an interface between the Linux user and the kernel. It's in the shell that commands are issued by the user and are thereafter executed by the operating system.

System libraries: These are special programs or functions which are responsible for implementing a majority of the functionalities of the operating system without relying on the kernel modules' code access rights.

System Utilities: System Utility programs are responsible to do specialized, individual level tasks.

6) What is the Linux Kernel?

A Linux kernel is the core of the Linux system. It interfaces the underlying hardware with the operating system

7) What is the difference between Linux and Unix? 

Linux is a clone of the UNIX system from which Linux is derived from. While Linux is opensource and free to use, UNIX is a proprietary operating system.

8) What are inodes in Linux? How to find the inode associated with a file? 

The inode (index node) is a data structure in a Unix-style file system that describes a file-system object such as a file or a directory. When a file is created, it is assigned both a name and an inode number, which is an integer that is unique within the filesystem.

21) Can you explain the functionality of a Puppet Server? 

Yes. In general, this is an enterprise application and perfect for configuration management. A puppet server is for Unix like OS. Explaining in detail, this a completely open-source and fully automated program. Using this, one can send the configurations to puppet agents through codes. Some essential tasks such as updating user accounts, verifying permissions of the file, new software installation, and others and can be carried out using the puppet code.

22)  What is the command to install Rpm packages? 

To install Rpm packages in CentOS and Red Hat, you can use yum and rpm command lines.

23) Which command can be used to determine the Linux box’s hostname? 

The hostname command helps in determining the hostname of the server.

24) Explain in short about the storage cluster? 

This is one of the most commonly asked Red Hat Linux System Administrator interview questions that you will face during your job interview. Talking about the cluster, here multiple computers combined together to carry out some tasks. Some major types of clusters are high performance, load balancing, high availability, and storage.

The storage cluster helps in providing the perfect view of the file system in the servers in the group. It dramatically improves the servers to write and read at the same time to a shared file system. Besides, storage simplifies the storage administration by effectively limiting the patching and application installation process.

25) Can you explain the difference between umask and ulimit? 

In general, ulimit is a Linux built-in command which offers excellent control over available resources to start the process. The users, if want, can limit the range by customizing the limits.conf files. Besides, the users can update the system settings by editing the sysctl.conf file. Now talking about umask, it defines the use file creation mask. When the users create a directory and file, umask sets the permission for the directories and files.

26) While installing Apache, what is the web port used to serve web pages?

Well, most of the web servers operate on Port 80. So, while installing Apache, it automatically defaults to Port 80. However, users can use some alternative ports. But this will force them to type a port into a browser to get access to the website. You can also use Port 8080 for this.

27) Explain file permission in Linux? 

In Linux, there are 3 main types of file permissions: read, write and execute. These permissions can be assigned to either a file or a directory recursively.  Being a multi-user system, you can assign these permissions to the root user, groups or even to other users using the system.

Read: The read permission grants uses the ability to open and read a file.

Write: Write permission allows a user to open and modify or edit the file's contents and save the changes.

Execute: This allows a user to execute or run the file or a program or shell script which is executable.

28) How to create a blank file in linux from command line? 

Using the command ‘touch <file-name>’

29) What is run level 2? 

Run level 2 is the multi-user mode without networking.

30) Why linux is called OpenSource? 

Because one can customize the existing code and can redistribute it.

31) What is the default uid & gid of root user? 

Default uid & gid of root user is 0.

32)  How To change the password of user from the Command Line? 

 ‘passwd <User-Name>’

33) What is a Process? 

Any program in execution is called a process.

34) What is name of first process in linux? 

 ‘init’ is the first process in linux which is started by kernel and whose pid is 1.

35) Explain about rgmanager and CMA? 

This is one of the most complex Red Hat Linux System Administrator interview questions. So, while answering it, remember to tell transparently. In the Red Hat cluster, Cman works as a cluster manager, especially a distributed cluster manager. It operates in a cluster node. Talking about its functions, it effectively tacks the cluster quorum by observing the cluster nodes. Cman is responsible for a quorum, voting, communication, and monitoring between clusters. 

Coming to the rgmanager, it is a resource group manager. Rgmanager is responsible for collecting cluster resources defined as resource trees, resource groups, and services. This dramatically helps a Red Hat administrator to define, monitor, and configure the cluster services. When a node fails to work, it will locate that particular clustered service to other nodes without affecting the services.

36) Explain the runs levels and how to alter them? 

In Linux, a run level is a stage of initialization that effectively defines what types of system services are functioning. They are generally defined by numbers. In general, there are a total of 7 run levels in the Linux system, and they serve a different purpose. They are:

  • Halt system (Sued to turn off the system)
  • Basis multi-user mode but there will be no NFS
  • Single users mode
  • Full multi-user mode (based on the text)
  • Multi-user mode (graphical UI)
  • Unused
  • Reboot system

37) Can you explain DAS?

This is one of the common Red Hat Linux System Administrator interview questions that every employer asks. However, the answer is quite simple. It is, generally, a block device physically connected to the host machine. It comes with a filesystem. Only certain servers can access the device. You can find such storage devices, near-dedicated resources, and server storage. The DAS is inexpensive and easy to use. It covers SATA and SCSI technologies.

38) What do you mean by LVM? 

In Red Hat Linux, LVM refers to Logical Volume Mangere. It is the storage management solution that lets the Red Hat Linux System Administrators split the space of hard drive into PV- Physical Volumes. After that, PV is combined into VG- Volume Groups. The VG can be further divided into LV- Logical Volumes.

39) Elaborate the process for creating LVM?

When talking about Red Hat Linux System Administrator interview questions, we can’t ignore this question. You need to elaborate it steps by steps. First, users need to create physical volumes. For this, they can use the command “pvcreate” (#pvcreate /dev/sda2). After establishing that, they need to add the physical volume to the volume group. Here “vgcreate” command can be used (#vgcreate VLG0 /dev/sda2). Now, from the volume group, create a logical volume. Use the “lvcreate” command (#lvcreate -L 1G -n LVM1 VLG0). In the last step, the users need to use the “mke2f” command to make a file system on Sda2 (#mke2fs -j /dev/VLG0/LVM1).

40) What do you mean by Crontab? Can you explain the fields of the Crontab? 

In the Red Hat Linux system, the cron executes the commands at specific times and dates in Linux. So, this greatly helps in scheduling the activities and quite useful for recurring works. The Crontab helps in uninstalling and installing the tables used to drive the cron. Here are some command lines for Crontab. 

  • Crontab -e Edit your crontab file.
  • Crontab -l Show your crontab file.
  • Crontab -r Remove your crontab file.
