Free APAC Sysadmin Day for Oracle Linux - March 14


Hands–On Labs for Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux and Oracle VM

We're taking the very popular OTN Sysadmin Days and going virtual! On Thursday, March 14, 2013, we're going to climb into a virtual platform and open our hands-on labs to you. This time it is for our Asia Pacific audiences. 

You'll be able to perform real-world tasks with Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, and Oracle VM, and if you get stumped, jump into the chat window and ask for help from the Oracle experts.

There's one caveat: you'll have to do a little homework ahead of time. Load the virtual images onto your laptop, find the instructions, and make sure everything is working properly.

This wiki https://wikis.oracle.com/display/virtualsysadminday/Home explains what you need to do. If you have questions, ask them as comments to the wiki:https://wikis.oracle.com/display/virtualsysadminday/Home.
