This course presents the system management and configuration tool SaltStack Open, from methods, techniques, capabilities to implementation. Each participant will see an in depth coverage of the basic SaltStack master and agent (minions) architecture along with the impact on the Linux system. Much of the time and attention will be spent in learning, writing, and applying/executing state definitions, the key part of SaltStack that allows synchronization and configuration of environments easily and uniformly.
It is assumed that participants are active systems developers and/or system administrators with some scripting knowledge (bash, ksh, Perl or Python) and an understanding of the various system tasks relating to setting up and supporting Linux (and other) systems. Experience with any other interactive system(s), such as Windows, will also provide the necessary experience.
