This will be one of my 1 of 4 webinars that I will be presenting on Linux for SQL Server DBAs. The first session is the primer of Linux for administrators.

Since Microsoft SQL Server became generally available on Linux, more and more companies have started to adopt Linux as the operating system (OS) of choice for SQL Server. Linux may not be embraced as the mainstream operating system for mission critical Microsoft SQL Server databases yet, but many have rolled out development and test environments on Linux. To be an effective database administrator in today’s market, DBAs and Architects must possess extensive operating experience and database expertise; this includes SQL Server on Linux.

Come learn how to navigate in the world of Linux and learn the essential Linux commands covering commonly used distributions, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Enterprise Server (SLES v12) to perform the day-to-day management of the Linux environment such as how to stop, start, enable and disable SQL Server Services on Linux.
