Clients are categorized by system type. Every client can have both a base system type, and an add-on system type assigned.
Base system types include
Management, for traditional clients, and
Salt for Salt clients.
Add-on system types include
Virtualization Host, for clients that operate as virtual hosts,
Container Build Host for clients that operate as a build host.
You can adjust the add-on system type by navigating to
Add-On System Type, and click either Add System Type or Remove System Type.
You can also change the base system type from
Salt, by re-registering the client.
Changing the base system type requires that you re-register your client. This deletes any customization or configuration on the client, however event history is preserved. It also requires client downtime.
For migrating a traditional client to a Salt client, see Migrate traditional clients to Salt clients.
