I will be doing a SaltConf presentation for the first time at SaltConf 2021. I attended SaltConf 2020 for the first time after VMware purchased SaltStack Config. This past year I have spent a lot of time reviewing SaltStack Config as a Windows Server Admin and I am excited to share what I have learned to hopefully help some Windows Server Admins get started.

I wanted to learn one of the configuration Management products for a couple of years and after VMware purchased SaltStack Config the decision became obvious to me which one I should learn since I live in VMware vRealize Products all day, every day.

So register today for SaltConf 2021 and attend my session.


Session Details:

  • Date: November 4th.
  • Time: 10:00 am - 10:50 am
  • Details: Track 1 - Managing Windows with SaltStack Config
  • Presenters: Vincent Riccio and Dale Hassinger


In our Presentation we will show you how to use SaltStack Config to manage Microsoft Windows Servers. How to use Salt to install software, work with Windows Services, make Registry changes, configuration management, how to quickly respond to Zero-Day Security patching, how to add vCenter TAGs/NSX-T TAGS/ Active Directory OUs as minion grain information, how to target minions, minion beacons, salt reactors and other normal day to day Windows Server administration.
