Salt Minion Configuration File

In most cases, Salt clients are registered accurately with the default bootstrap methods. However, you can use Salt to register the client to the Uyuni Server manually by editing the Salt minion file on the client, and providing the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the server. This method operates using ports 4505 and 4506 inbound to the server. This method requires no configuration on the Uyuni Server aside from ensuring that these ports are open.

Procedure: Registering Clients with Salt Minion Configuration File
  1. On the Salt client, open the /etc/salt/minion configuration file.

  2. Add or edit this line, using the FQDN of the Uyuni Server:

    master: <SERVER-FQDN>
  3. Restart the Salt service:

    service salt-minion restart
  4. On the Uyuni Server, at the command prompt, accept all available Salt clients:

    salt-key -A
