Management solution for openSUSE based on Salt-stack

an idea by dmacvicar

Saltstack is the only configuration management solution that does not look like a ball of hair. https://github.com/dmacvicar/playground/tree/minimanager-reactjs/python/minimanager is a prototype of a Spacewalk-like console using Spacewalk as the server and client engine.

The future of systems management

a project by j_renner

A new web UI for saltstack, possibly the future of systems management. The official salt UI halite is now officially retired and saltpad is still very young and in alpha state. In addition to the creation of a new frontend to salt, the goal could be to work towards a full replacement for existing systems management solutions like spacewalk, including the migration (minionification) of systems from there.

Agentless Systems Management Based on Salt SSH

a project by j_renner

This project is about using Salt SSH for managing systems without the need of an additional agent to be installed (besides sshd). With the SSH protocol the connection is initiated by the management server, thus Salt SSH can be used to even manage systems that are located outside of company firewalls, i.e. machines that cannot access a salt-master due to firewall restrictions. In order to still be able to access resources inside a company network though it would be very helpful if the salt-ssh command supported remote port forwarding (as with the -R parameter of the ssh command) for tunneling other traffic through the existing ssh connection, for instance a package manager might want to install packages from a company internal RPM repository. A patch was therefore contributed to Salt SSH in order to enable this feature (merged into develop):
