Add and Remove Salt Minions

When using the Salt platform, Salt maintains its minions for the lifecycle of the minion. This means that there will always be times when we need to either add or remove minions as they are provisioned and retired from use. In this lab, we'll simulate retiring an old server and bringing its new replacement under Salt's management.
