I'm working on configuring a group of 40 servers to be managed by SaltStack. I'm testing with just one minion at the moment, which I have successfully added to the master. For simplicity, I'm using the latest version of salt and salt-minion from the Ubuntu 14.04.1 package repository on the respective machines.
I have what appears to be a sane configuration and directory structure, however whenever I try running
salt '*' state.highstate, I get an error that the top file does not match the nodes. If I try manually running a state file with
salt '*' state.sls worker.users, it errors that no such file exists. Directory structure and files are below.
Any idea why this is not working?
root@salt-master:/srv/salt# tree /srv/salt /srv/salt ├── worker │ └── users.sls └── top.sls 1 directory, 4 files root@master:/srv/salt# salt '*' state.highstate worker-2: ---------- State: - no Name: states Function: None Result: False Comment: No Top file or external nodes data matches found Changes: Summary ------------ Succeeded: 0 Failed: 1 ------------ Total: 1
The contents of the relevant files:
root@master:/srv/salt# cat top.sls base: '*': - worker.users root@master:/srv/salt# cat worker/users.sls worker: user.present: - fullname: Service Account - shell: /bin/bash - home: /home/worker admin: user.present: - fullname: Search Admin Account - shell: /bin/bash - home: /home/admin
File root is defined as follows in the master and I've restarted all the machines:
file_roots: base: - /srv/salt
