In this recipe, we will learn about minions, how they work, and how to install and configure them.
We will install the Salt minion on a second node and name the node
salt-minion. First, we will install the
epel-releaserpm to configure the EPEL repository:
[root@salt-minion ~]# rpm -ihv \ http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6- 8.noarch.rpm
salt-minionpackage with the following command and the dependencies should automatically be fetched from the repository:
[root@salt-minion ~]# yum –y install salt-minion
