In SUSE Manager we want to offer support for bootstrapping systems that don't have the salt-minion installed and configured yet. This can be done using salt-ssh given just a hostname, username and password. See the docs about salt rosters for even more options. What we are missing:

  • Support for using salt-ssh in our library
  • User interface allowing users to input the needed parameters so they can bootstrap their systems

Looking for hackers with the skills:

saltstack ssh java manager reactjs

This project is part of:

      BTW, the next logical step would be to use a network scanning roster (or do the network scanning separately). I used salt-ssh with the scan roster for my SUSECon SE training. In landscapes where there is one root PW or the SSH key has been pre-distributed, mass on-boarding of systems can work really easily that way.
