Installing a Salt Minion on openSuse Tumbleweed


  • Service Provider

    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
