With Rancher, you can initialise multiple clusters with one single central place to manage them. The Rancher control plane is deployed as a Docker Container.
To start Rancher, run the command:
docker run -d -p 443:443 --name=rancher rancher/rancher:v2.0.2
Once started, you can view the Rancher dashboard at https://[[HOST_SUBDOMAIN]]-443-[[KATACODA_HOST]].environments.katacoda.com
Rancher may take one or two minutes to start. You can view the boot process with
docker logs rancher
Once started, the first step is to configure a password for the login admin of the cluster. For a random password, have Rancher generate the password for you.
Confirm Server URL
Once the password is created, confirm the URL for the cluster.
Rancher is now running!! In the next step, in the next step you'll use this cluster to configure Kubernetes.
