Migrating from SaltStack Enterprise (SSE) to SaltStack Open-Salt

Migration from SSE to Open Salt:

#) Make copies of your Salt configuration files. Files & directories to be considered, though not limited to:

  • /etc/salt/*
  • /srv/salt/*
  • /srv/pillar/*
  • Any custom paths that contain Salt configuration files you wish to retain.

#) Uninstall the SSE copies of your Salt-Master and Salt-Minion with the commands appropriate to your given operating system.

  • Ex for RHEL: `yum remove salt-enterprise-xxxxx`

#) Install Open Source Salt using the commands appropriate to your given operating system.

#) Post Installation Tasks & Notes:

  • Post installation all Master and Minion configuration files will be that of a default installation.
  • Regarding PKI Keys: Salt PKI keys will NOT need to be re-accepted on the master. Keys do not get touched during the uninstall of SSE or the reinstall of OS-Salt.
