This one-day hands-on session will introduce the Salt state system. We will then enhance States by adding some Jinja. Next you will be introduced to the Salt event bus, how to monitor it, and the anatomy of an event. Next we will use our knowledge of the event system to build a beacon and reactor to automatically react to events. Finally we will discover the power of salt-ssh.
Presenter: Ross Brunson
This one day session will primarily consist of a series of extremely useful practice mini-exams for the updated practicum-based exams for the SUSE Certified Administrator (SCA) Enterprise Linux certification. Attendees will receive a short briefing about the exam’s objectives, how they are tested and strategies for ensuring success. After the introduction they will move on to hands-on practice. Live-fire exercises will present a set of requirements such as might occur on the exam, with the instructor available for advice and assistance as they work through the tasks. Additionally, candidates will receive the latest information about exam delivery methods, how to quickly and easily find examples to copy and use for common configuration tasks and much more.
Prerequisites: Attendees should have previously reviewed and learned the exam objectives for the SCA (2017 UPDATE) exam. This course will give attendees practice applying the knowledge in the manner they will need to on the exam, but does not teach the core objectives.
