Welcome to the Virtual Training Company. I'm Bobby Rogers and I'll be your facilitator for this course. What we're going to look at during this course is the Oracle Certified Associate or OCA for Oracle's latest operating system, the Solaris 11 system. Now Solaris has been around for quite a long time having previously been owned by Sun until Oracle bought them a few years ago. And there was some doubt in the community as to how Oracle would handle Solaris. But all those fears are unfounded, Oracle has done an excellent job of both continuing Solaris as a fine operating system and enhancing with it Solaris 11. So we're going to in this course look at Oracle's first level certification for Solaris 11 and that's the OCA, the Oracle Solaris 11 System Administrator. Now the OCA Cert is basically an introductory basic level certification and what it shows is a very basic knowledge in administering a typical Solaris 11 system. Now this could be things like installation, typical maintenance, management creating users and so forth. And we'll go through all this as we look through the course at how to do all this in Solaris 11. Now we'll tell you there are no prerequisites for this course or for the certification. However, it helps if you have some Solaris experience most certainly, especially on Solaris 10. But you don't have to have that. If you've got Solaris experience from previous versions, that's great. Or if you're coming from a Linux background or some other Unix background, that will help you out as well. And finally if you have no experience whatsoever in Linux or Unix or Solaris, don't worry about it we're going to cover the basics and you'll be able to get right in and study this material on your own and be able to pass this exam. Now we're going to review all the major topics that we find on the exam as listed officially by Oracle. However, you need to know that we're just going to do kind of a service level review, we're going to show you how to do complete commands, we're going to show you how to install this system and manage it. But that's no substitute for intense personal study. While this is an introductory level certification that doesn't mean you can just go ahead and whizz by and read a book or something and go ahead and just sit for the exam and do well. No it requires some hands on, practical experience. And we're going to give you some of that throughout this course by demonstrating some of the concepts you're going to need to know for the exam. But once again this does require some personal study time. It will definitely help if you set up your own Oracle Solaris 11 virtual machine or install it on a server that can handle it and practice on it. I would not practice on a production server of any kind of course but a laboratory setting would be fine or even a virtual machine, such as what we're going to be using for this course would definitely help you out a lot. Having said that let's go ahead and get into Oracle Solaris 11, one of the first things we're going to talk about is just what it is and take a brief tour of it. So let's get on with it.
