Salt packages are available from most repositories. Also, the last stable version can be installed from salt bootstrap this way:
# Download and install curl -L https://bootstrap.saltstack.com -o install_salt.sh sudo sh install_salt.sh -P -M # Open firewall ports firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=4505-4506/tcp
-P installs 'pip' as dependency. Otherwhise install may fail.
-M means that it will install the 'master' daemon aswell.
# Download and install curl -L https://bootstrap.saltstack.com -o install_salt.sh sudo sh install_salt.sh -P
Currently, there is a CNAME registry named 'salt' in ciberterminal.net zone, so further configuration shouldn't be needed.
In case that a server where not using ciberterminal.net DNS and search domain, the salt-master address can be specified in the configuration file
To list all keys:
sudo salt-key --list all
sudo salt-key --accept-all
To test connectivity with minions you can ping them from the master:
sudo salt '*' test.ping
As minions are usually named by its DNS resolved name and are by default case sensitive, you can use regex to specify the minion id:
sudo salt -E '(?i)av*' grains.get hostname
