Configuration Management with Salt Stack on Windows - Part 3 - Basic Configuration Management of Windows with Salt

In part 3 we're going to just scratch the surface of remote execution in Salt. We're going to accept the keys for the master server and  run basic tasks using the built in modules.

The minion automatically tries to contact the Master server. The master server must approve the minions "keys" before it can be managed.

On the master server you can view the keys by using the command
sudo salt-key -L
As you can see we need to accept the "keys"

You can accept the key by using the command
sudo salt-key -a WIN-R7RQM4ENMHS
