The SD Card on my Raspberry Pi died this week. So I decided that this time, I’d use Salt to manage my Pi and not have to worry about backing up my configuration from the Pi itself as Salt would be managing it for me!
I used the Raspbian Unattended Netinstaller to give me the most minimal image possible.
If you use this installer, make sure you set up the image to install Jessie rather than the default Wheezy distribution to get the correct version of the salt minion.
