Proposed Agenda Items

Salt Services Happenings since last meeting

  • Anthony - just regular usage of pushing out configs when changes occur
  • Nathan - a lot of work on the Postgres formula, but not any new formulas
  • Anthony - working on automount

mysql setup: workflow model where service expert provides salt formula on a fork of the master SaltStacks git repo.

  • Dave's concerned that documentation on a service's "requirements, features, how to recreate it by hand and list of what depends on it" will not get created where new CSCF people can access it without a steep learning curve.
  • Anthony: he and Fraser have been busy with ugsters, and other fires

20.04 Web Servers migration - status

* Nathan has been creating Salt formulae * Doesn't need Anthony's help at the moment * May need containers destroyed and recreated * Question - list of vhost-specific files * right now, it is in the formula, but probably shouldn't? Isaac needs to be able to make changes fairly frequently * want to enforce better change management, so want to not have various people update the Salt formula to update such data * considering creating it's own git repository that Isaac could update, and have the formula pull it down * Anthony - he and Devon do something similar for Icinga
  • Anthony and Nathan think we should have a dev server for web develop/testing
    • Anthony says we have some old ugsters being taken out of service that could be used for some other servers

Action Items

  • Dave: create an RT to replace the Ugster switch (details to be provided in the ticket)
  • Anthony: document Mysql workflow - how to integrate service-specific changes
  • Nathan: split Vhost config directory to its own repo
