New in version 2015.8.2.
Salt proxy state can be used to deploy, configure and run
salt-proxy instance on your minion. Configure proxy settings
on the master side and the state configures and runs
on the remote end.
On your salt-master, ensure that pillar is configured properly. Select an ID for your proxy (in this example we will name the proxy 'p8000'). In your pillar topfile, place an entry for your proxy:
base: 'p8000': - p8000
This says that Salt's pillar should load some values for the proxy
from the file
/srv/pillar/p8000.sls (if you have not changed your default pillar_roots)
In the pillar root for your base environment, create the
p8000.sls file with the
proxy: # set proxytype for your proxymodule proxytype: ssh_sample host: saltyVM username: salt password: badpass
Create the following state in your state tree (let's name it salt_proxy.sls)
salt-proxy-configure: salt_proxy.configure_proxy: - proxyname: p8000 - start: True # start the process if it isn't running
Make sure your salt-master and salt-minion are running.
Run the state salt_proxy on the minion where you want to run
state.sls to configure and run
# salt device_minion state.sls salt_proxy
This starts salt-proxy on
Accept your proxy's key on your salt-master
salt-key -y -a p8000 The following keys are going to be accepted: Unaccepted Keys: p8000 Key for minion p8000 accepted.
Now you should be able to run commands on your proxy.
