Runlevels have changed significantly as Linux distributions have migrated from sysvinit to systemd. Understanding how runlevels are configured in systemd is paramount to successfully making that transition. After completing this activity, the student will have a firm understanding of how the new system ‘targets’ control the runlevels of your distribution.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Move New Target Into Appropriate Location
The student will need to move the file called ‘custom.target’ to the appropriate system directory so that it can be used to set the new default runlevel.
- New Default Target File Permission Set Correctly
The new ‘custom.target’ file will need to be in the proper system directory ‘/etc/systemd/system’ and have the permissions of 744.
- The Default System Target is Set to the Custom Target
Finally, the student will be setting the default system runlevel target to be the newly installed ‘custom.target’.
