SSH Server Push via salt-ssh
Note: This page is not related to the SSH Server Push for the traditional clients. For this, visit this page SUSE_Manager/SSHServerPush.
Note: This feature is still work-in-progress and this page reflects the current state of it.
This feature allows:
- managing systems via the "push via SSH" contact method by utilizing salt-ssh ,
- bootstrapping such systems.
To bootstrap a salt-ssh system, go to the "Bootstrapping" page in the Web UI (Salt -> Bootstrapping), fill the required fields in and check "Manage system completely via SSH" field and click the "Bootstrap" button. After this the system will be bootstrapped and registered in the SUSE Manager and will appear under the System list.
Note: This checkbox is hidden from the Web UI in the current code.
- SSH daemon must be running on the remote system and reachable by the salt-api daemon (typically running on the SUSE Manager server)
- Python must be installed on the remote system and the version of python must be supported by the installed salt (currenntly python 2.6). Note: Old RHEL/CentOS versions (<= 5) are not supported since they do not contain python 2.6 by default.
