Map Salt States to Minions

Salt can help us configure and enforce state across our entire infrastructure with just a single command. But for that command to work, we need to make sure we have our states and formulas appropriately associated with our minions. This is achieved via the use of a top file, which we'll be creating in this hands-on lab.
