SALTSTACK - SALT ADMINISTRATION I
The SaltStack Administration training course provides an IT professional the fundamental skills needed to manage Salt infrastructure.
Linux system administration experience
The course begins with the installation, configuration, and use of remote execution modules for basic salt management.
It then builds on those concepts with the implementation of Salt states. The Salt states sections include creating SLS files and state trees, setting requisites and declarations, and using the default YAML and Jinja renderers. There is instruction on utilizing Salt grains, pillars in state files.
Additional topics include Salt runners, returners, reactors, beacons, and orchestration. Salt topology considerations will cover Salt-SSH, and Salt syndic. Implementing external and master job caches to persistent storage will also be covered.
All students are provided:
- A course training manual
- A Salt cloud environment for hands-on labs during training
This is a 20 hour course held in 5 half-day sessions.

COURSE TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
The technical requirements for SaltStack Training are:
We typically use Google Hangouts for remote virtual instructor-led attendees. It works best in a Chrome browser with the Google Hangouts plugin. You can download it from https://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/hangoutplugin
If a video conferencing technology is used then technical requirements will be given.
Each student will be given a group of Linux virtual machines hosted in the Amazon cloud. You will need to be able to SSH (destination port 22) from your network to access them. A SSH private key will be given to you for authentication.
The class portal is a website located at http://training.saltstack.com containing links to resources and end of chapter knowledge checks. A login to this site will be given at the beginning of class.
Completing this course, and “Admin II” will prepare an attendee to sit the SaltStack Certified Engineer (SSCE) exam.
