All users should have a user directory in the home directory (e.g., /home/samantha) where only the user has read and write permissions. Explain what kinds of permissions/access are needed to effectively run this script. Where would you store this script on the file system and why?
  1. Explain to your boss in detail how to create a disk mount named /data with 2TB of disk space (assuming you have 10TB of free and unallocated disk space on the server) and a directory on the /data mount called /tenants. Each user in the user group except for you should have read and write privileges. Your have only read privileges for this directory.
  1. Create another script (called that logs each user’s commands and activities on the operating system. It should be sending the log messages to this endpoint:
    1. IP address: localhost
    2. Port: 8080
    3. Protocol: UDP
    4. The script should run every five minutes, so you need to explain how you would get this to run on a timed basis. What kinds of permissions/access are needed to effectively run this script and transmit logs? Explain to your team where you would store this script on the file system and why.
  1. Create a script (called that writes the current CPU usage, memory usage, disk space usage for the /data mount that was previously created, a list of all files created on the /data mount, and all of the processes currently being run on the server to a file (performance.txt) every hour. You want to overwrite the file, performance.txt, and give it read-only access. Please explain to your boss where you would put the performance.txt file on the file system and where you would put the script.
  1. Your team wants to deploy a new application on the servers that needs the latest Java© Development Kit (JDK) and GNU Compiler Collection (GCC). How do you check for which versions of these packages that are currently installed on the servers?
