In this hands-on lab, we will determine the Linux distribution that is running on the lab host. As a System Administrator, it's not uncommon to log into an unfamiliar system to perform troubleshooting and other tasks, and this lab gives us a chance to practice discovering details about the operating system.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
