In this task I did three separate things: Firstly I booted Windows 10 OS VM using Virtualbox and installed 10 arbitary programs using Salt. Second task was to install Visual Studio Code to a Linux system using a Microsoft package repository. In the third task I applied ufw firewall rules and searched from the timeline which files were modified and by using these files, I could copy and apply the same rules to Salt-minions.
Had a brief look to couple Git commands (log, diff, blame, reset) and then installed Vim including theme, configuration ja plugins. Tested everything first locally and then to a virtual machine using Salt.
This assignment H2 is all about Salt package-file-service; how to install, configure and manage different demons using Salt.
Purpose of this assignment was to install Salt and run simple commands from master to minion(s). For creating minions I used vagrant which helps to create multiple VM instances with straight forward commands.
