Remember to READ ALL THE WORDS to work effectively and not waste time.
This is an overview of how you are expected to complete this assignment. Read all the words before you start working.
For full marks, follow these directions exactly.
You will create some minimal file system structure in your HOME directory on the CLS.
Most work will involve changes in your own Linux Virtual Machine running Centos 6.6. You can use the Checking Program to check your work as you do the CentOS Install and Configure. You can check your work with the Checking Program as often as you like before you submit your final mark.
When you are finished, leave the files and directories in place on both the CLS and your own CentOS Virtual Machine as part of your deliverables. Do not delete any assignment work until after the term is over! Assignments may be re-marked at any time on the CLS; you must have your term work available on the CLS right until term end.
All course notes are available on the Internet and also on the CLS. You can learn about how to read and search these CLS files using the command line on the CLS under the heading Copies of the CST8207 course notes near the bottom of the page Course Linux Server.
Make the CLS directory
~/CST8207-14F/Assignments/assignment10 that will be the CLS base directory for this assignment. (You will also create a similar CentOS base directory.)
As you work on the CentOS installation, you can download to CentOS and run the Checking Program to check your work.
That is all the tasks you need to do.
Submit your mark from the CLS following the Checking Program instructions below.
Optional: Keeping your main configuration snapshots, remove any intermediate snapshots you no longer require, to free up disk space. - Be careful not to remove your current work!
