Event Details


This is the second course in the SaltStack Administration training series. It builds on the concepts of the previous course by presenting additional topics above the fundamentals of Salt administration.  The topics are presented with scenario-based labs.



SaltStack - Salt Administration I and extensive experience with Salt.

Have you been using Salt to discover, monitor, respond, orchestrate, automate, and secure assets across on-premises, hybrid, cloud, and IoT systems? The Salt Administration I course introduces all of these topics. Admin I is not just a basics class but is designed to quickly take those new to salt as well as those with experience, into the advanced topics. Then the SaltStack - Salt Administration II class takes that knowledge even deeper. 

Please get the most out of Salt by attending BOTH courses starting with SaltStack - Salt Administration I



This course begins with presenting the different aspects of the provisioning and deploying Salt minions. It presents cloud integration with Salt, custom deployments of Linux, Windows, and Proxy minions. Alternative topologies such as implementing master failover strategies. 

Building on the fundamental administrative tasks presented in the Admin-I course, this course shows how to address administrative tasks in large environments. It provides a detailed outline of various execution paths in Salt architecture.  Execution topics include Salt events, state and file rendering, and other concepts important to Salt architecture. Security topics include running as a non-root user, using external authentication, and troubleshooting and tuning Salt.

The course adds to configuration management concepts by outlining best practices for state formulas. There will be scenarios presenting showing the best use of templating with Jinja.  It shows how to utilize the Jinja tips and tricks in Salt states.  Salt orchestration scenarios will show how to automate enterprise-wide deployments.
