INSTALLING PACKAGES THROUGH SINGLE COMMAND

2 -> Installing Packages Through state file

  • A base environment is required to house the top file/state files, so we need to set the ‘file_roots’ in the salt-master configuration file ( /etc/salt/master ) and restart the salt-master service.
  • Also we need to create directory ‘salt’ under ‘/srv’ ( /srv/salt )
  • Execute this command : cd /srv/ ; mkdir salt
  • # vi /etc/salt/master

Deploying packages through SaltStack:

  • Restart the service using systemctl restart salt-master command
  • We have created ‘apache.sls’ under the /srv/salt, lets check the contents,

Syntax:

apache: # ID declaration

pkg: # state declaration

– installed # function declaration

  • On the apache.sls, we have used ‘pkg.installed’ instead of ‘pkg.install’ for Apache installation. Pkg.installed in the state file will help us to ensure that the package is installed with a correct version. If the package is already available it shows ‘Package already installed and its version’ else it will perform the installation.
  • Before executing the state file on our minion we need to verify status.
