I have installed RancherOS a couple of times now on a VPS, but there seems to be some problems with it holding the settings when it is reboot.
I have followed the procedure very closely and was able to install it on one of two VPS machines without any problems, but when I install it on the 2nd one, after I do things like “sudo passwd rancher” and change the password, as well as using the bash method “sudo bash; passwd rancher” and change the password then things are fine, but after I complete the install by setting up the minimal “cloud-config.yml” then reboot, then the settings are gone.
In one attempt, I was able to go through the while process, but then I changed the “/etc/hostname” with no problems and rebooted, but the RancherOS did not hold the hostname change.
Still another attempt, I was able to install, change the rancher password, and even the hostname, which all came up good until I tried to login via the SSH key or ssh direct, in which it would not let me login.
The final attempt, I was able to get all of the above to work, briefly but then installed the Rancher Server:
sudo docker run -d --restart=unless-stopped -p 8080:8080 rancher/server
and then it would not hold those settings.
Not sure what is happening here but I am wondering if others have experience such problems and perhaps may know how to fix it?
I installed from the “RancherOS 1.02 LTS” iso that was mounted to the VPS cdrom drive and after the install, but before the reboot that it asks for, I unmount the iso and boot from the freshly installed hard drive “/dev/sda/”
Thanks in advance,
