Salt Vagrant LXC
A Salt Setup using Vagrant and LXC
Run the following commands in a terminal. Vagrant, the Vagrant LXC plugin and your hosts lxc packages must already be installed.
vagrant plugin install vagrant-lxc
git clone https://github.com/UtahDave/salt-vagrant-lxc.git cd salt-vagrant-lxc vagrant up --provider lxc
This will download an Ubuntu lxc container and create four linux containers for you. One will be a Salt Master named master and the others will be Salt Minions named minion1, minion2, and minion3. The Salt Minions will point to the Salt Master. You can then run the following commands to log into the Salt Master and begin using Salt.
vagrant ssh master sudo salt \* test.ping
