Is salt discontinued in VyOS 1.3 now?

Not intentionally, let me check how we can get it back.
on side note, what minion version we should go with in 1.3?

Given 1.3 is Debian 10.3 under the hood, I would recommend 2019.2 using the PY3 repository:


Archive key at: https://repo.saltstack.com/py3/debian/10/amd64/2019.2/SALTSTACK-GPG-KEY.pub

And apt-able packages at:

deb http://repo.saltstack.com/py3/debian/10/amd64/2019.2 buster main

There are two caveats:

  1. the PY3 repository uses Python 3, which might show some warnings in its output related to deprecated features of the language; but at least this is a stable and supported version of Python :slight_smile:
  2. there is a current version of SaltStack v3000, but we’ve had some slight interop problems running that as a salt-minion when talking to a salt-master of 2019 (or earlier)… I’m still investigating why!

Back in the early Debian Buster days salt was removed as somehow it was not that easy to integrate but that should not block the migration to Debian Buster.

I will readd that package to vyos-world https://phabricator.vyos.net/T2063

Any rolling release after vyos-1.3-rolling-202002220217-amd64.iso should have it back in. Please test and report bugs via Phabricator.

That’s tomorrow’s fun dev project chosen, then! :slight_smile:

Thumbs-up from me, that is working a treat.

And so I have released hphr — which is “VyOS + SaltStack + Netbox = Routing Security”.

Many thanks!
