Register on the Command Line (Salt)
Instead of the Web UI, you can use the command line to register a Salt client.
This procedure requires that you have installed the Salt package on the Salt client before registration.
For SLE 12 based clients, you also must have activated the
Advanced Systems Management module.
Registring on the command line is also possible with traditional clients, but it requires more steps. It is not covered here. Use the bootstrap script procedure to register traditional clients. For more information, see registration-bootstrap.adoc.
Choose a client configuration file located at:
This is sometimes also called a minion file.
Add the client FQDN as the
masterto the client configuration file:
master: SERVER.EXAMPLE.COM server_id_use_src: adler32 enable_legacy_startup_events: False enable_fqdns_grains: False grains: susemanager: activation_key: "<Activation_Key_Name>"
systemctl restart salt-minion
On the server, accept the new client key; replace
<client>with the name of your client:
salt-key -a '<client>'
