Update a Salt Minion with Execution Modules

We can manage numerous servers at once through the use of Salt. This type of remote execution is supported via the use of _execution modules_, which are individual sets of functions that let us perform related actions on our servers, often across distributions and operating systems. In this lab, we'll practice using execution modules by preparing a new development server.
