saltstack minion and docker preinstalled on ubuntu image
Full Description

Saltstack Salt-Minion on Ubuntu 14.04

A Docker image which allows you to run salt-minion service with preinstalled docker.
The idea is to use salt-minion as tiny docker-based service bootstrap.

Running the Container

You can easily run the container like so:

docker run --rm -it greendwin/salt-minion


There is a volume with minion configuration:

  • /etc/salt/minion.d - master configuration

Sharing Local Folders

To share folders on your local system so you can have your own minon configuration use:

docker run -d                                   \
    -v /path/to/salt/conf:/etc/salt/minion.d    \
    --name salt-minion                          \

To use this container as salt/docker bootstrapper use following command:

docker run -d                                       \
    -v /path/to/salt/conf:/etc/salt/minion.d        \
    -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock    \
    -v /data:/data                                  \
    --name salt-minion                              \

When you share /var/run/docker.sock all calls to docker executes on host side and all volume shares are taken from host too.
That is why we share /data directory. This allows us to use file.managed salt state with volume binding in dockernq.running.
