I noticed in the newer release of Docker Engine (1.8.x) that the agents are showing up as containers in Rancher. It also shows the state and run agents that are stopped most of the time so they show up red making one think something is wrong. Does anyone know what is causing this behavior in Rancher?
With Docker 1.8 had a change, which caused these containers to start showing up in the Docker UI. There will be a fix in the next Rancher release for new installs using Docker 1.8.

Thanks. Didn’t see that post.
