When using the Salt platform, Salt maintains its minions for the lifecycle of the minion. This means that there will always be times when we need to either add or remove minions as they are provisioned and retired from use. In this lab, we’ll simulate retiring an old server and bringing its new replacement under Salt’s management.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Remove the Former Backup Server
Remove the existing
backupkey from the master.
- Start Salt on the New Backup Server
Ensure the new
backupserver has Salt configured. Then enable the connection to the master.
- Approve the New Minion
Add the new
backupserver to the Salt master.
