Creating a Salt master on Fedora 30



  • This assumes you have an up-to-date Fedora Server 30 installation and that you are elevated to root.

    Install salt

    dnf install salt-master
    

    Open the firewall

     firewall-cmd --add-port=4505-4506/tcp --permanent
     firewall-cmd --reload
    

    Enable and start the service

    systemctl enable --now salt-master.service 
    

    That gets you a working Salt Master, next on to setting up salt minions, in particular OSX minions.

  • Dont' use bullet/number lists in instructions and guides like this. it makes it annoying for those that want to copy and paste.

    This guide is assuming that you are running as root. If not prepend everything here with sudo.

    Install the salt-master package

    dnf install salt-master
    

    Open the required ports in the firewall

    firewall-cmd --add-port=4505-4506/tcp --permanent
    firewall-cmd --reload
    

    Enable the salt-master service to start on boow, and also start it now.

    systemctl enable --now salt-master.service
