Let me start by stating that I am a Linux novice and I’m entirely new to Rancher and Kubernetes.
I have a lab environment with vSphere 7 (licensed).
I want to install a simple Rancher environment which I can use to setup a vSphere Kubernetes Cluster.
I was advised to install K3s and then setup Rancher on that. My problem is that, installing K3s is very straight forward but once installed, how do I install Rancher? (is there a step-by-step guide with all commands?)
I followed a guide which directed readers to install Helm Chart, cert-manager and then Rancher.
The problem is that I get to the last part of cert-manager and then I get an error stating "could not connect to “127.0.0.1:8080” which makes sense because Kubernetes is running at h “127.0.0.1:6443”.
If I skip that step and move on to step 5, I get an error stating that it could not find the namespace.
Advice for a noob would be appreciated.
