· Failure to follow the following instructions and those in the attachment will lead to a loss of points
· You are going to do this lab twice, once with Linux command line, and once with the MS Windows command line.
· Read the instructions in the word document very carefully. When the work is done, submit both zip files together at the same time.
Leverage Google and Youtube to accomplish your tasks. You may find wonderful Youtube videos on how to take screenshots both in Windows and Linux. If you are using a Linux OS on a virtual machine with a Windows host, you may take the Linux screenshots from the host machine. Make sure you document all your steps in accomplishing the tasks.
· Do not cheat by creating the folders and files using a GUI. You will lose many points if I do not see the screenshots that create the files and folders.
In this exercise, you are going to use Windows
command line interface on to create directories and files and organize them according to the following instructions. In a new folder which you will create, you are going to create a directory structure as shown below. The names in
bold letters are folder names. The names with
bold, italic and underline
mean they are the top-level folders, the names with
bold and italic
mean they are sub-folders, the names just in
bold means they are sub-sub-folders and the remaining names are files made by application programs.
Replace the all “xx” in each name with your initials in capital.
Folders Sub-folders Sub-sub-folders
· Using the command line interface, create a folder named
(type your real name) on your desktop, in your home “home” directory, or anywhere you can find it.
· Create a folder named “Snapshots” in the created folder. You will use it to save screenshots.
· Create directories and folders as described in the table above. Take a screenshot of
ALL your commands and the outputs and save it in the “Snapshots” folder you created earlier.
· Use the “
cd” command to log in
each and every directory you created
according to the table (10 in total) to display its contend,
each element on a line, with details. Take a screenshot of your commands (including “cd”) and the outputs and save it in the “Snapshots” folder you created earlier.
· Display a “tree” structure of the main directory
and take a screenshot.
· Zip the
directory using the command line and submit (using GUI) the zip file to Blackbord.
