Objective

This will be a hands on Workshop.

Attendees will come away from this training with an understanding of the SaltStack core architecture and core modules, when to write custom execution modules, grains, and runners; how best to use the Salt Reactor, Salt Orchestrate, and more. Trainees will learn how to install SaltStack from scratch in both master / minion and masterless architectures, run commands, set up and manage systems, and orchestrate deployments.

Description

During the course, I will give an introduction to using SaltStack for data center command and control, configuration management and infrastructure automation. Trainees will also successfully install and use SaltStack to orchestrate deploying a simple Web app on Apache.

Requirements

Work experience as a systems administrator, DevOps engineer, or in some function of IT operations. Some familiarity with systems management tools and practices.

    Hi Abhinav,
    Salt provides proxy minions for this. I’ve not really used this. but I can explore it and we could discuss it privately if you’re interested.

    I have managed to automate some fiber channel switches but not using proxy minions.
