Issues identified with Exercise 2.1 and 2.2

I came across four issues when completing Exercise 2.1 and 2.2 which I think are important to indicate to others who may have trouble. It would also be nice to see these changes made in the exercises.

  1. The instructions on 2.1 provide instructions to use the wget command to download the files BEFORE Exercise 2.2 provides the commands to ssh into the node. However, you should ssh into the node before running the wget command to download the files.

  2. When running the wget command to download the files, you need to add underscores(_) manually. The actual files on the server have underscores in them which is not reflected in the wget command. The actual command should be: wget https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/LFD259/LFD259_V2020-02-03_SOLUTIONS.tar.bz2\ --user=xxxxxxxx --password=xxxxxxxx

  3. The wget command provided should have a space after the slash at the end of the url and the --user flag. Currently there is not a space when you copy/paste.

  4. You also will need to manually add underscores (_) to the tar command to unzip the files. Currently the command provided in the exercises does not match the file name on the server which has underscores.

Hope this helps.

    Hi Ryan,

    Your feedback is much appreciated. The underscore issue has been reported in an earlier discussion, where a solution has been provided as well.
