Installing a Salt Minion on openSuse Tumbleweed
Installing the Salt Minion agent on a Minion node for Salt Stack is very simple. In this example I will show an install of openSuse Tumbleweed.
sudo zypper install salt-minion
That is all that we need for the installation itself. Configuration can be done once installed.
The Salt Minion just needs a way to locate its master. We just need to add the IP address of our Salt Master into the /etc/hosts file on the Minion(s) in order to contact it.
echo '192.168.1.97 salt' >> /etc/hosts
Where 192.168.1.97 is the IP Address of your Salt Master.
Don't forget to set your hostname of your Minion(s):
echo 'minion1' > /etc/hostname
