Installing Rancher on Ubuntu/Docker

On this article we are going to install a rancher server on Ubuntu. Let’s start by getting the rancher image from docker hub: sudo docker run -d --restart=always -p 8080:8080 --name=rancher-server rancher/server Go to http://ip-address:8080 and click on Add Host. It is important that you do not use a localhost address (, localhost). If you do so, and you want to add your local computer as an agent, you will not be able to reach it.
