Rancher Kibana VIP started but port not accessible

I am running the RancherELK Stack on RHEL 7.2 with docker 1.9.
Rancher Server and Agent are on the same host.
ELK stack gets deployed fine. I see all the services/stack green on Rancher UI. When I try to access Kibana on the Host ( Rancher says that the port is mapped on the Host under Ports), it is not accessible. I am able to exec into the VIP container and curl it.

There are two issues

  1. Unable to access on the host ( either from outside throught browser or curl, tried with noproxy option)
  2. Able to access on the container on the port(9090) that was meant to be open on the container.

The machine is behind a proxy. I have proxy settings defined in /etc/default/docker and also passed -e proxy variables for server and agent startup.

Excerpt from the yml file


  • 9090:80
    io.rancher.scheduler.affinity:host_label: type=monitor
    tty: true
    image: rancher/load-balancer-service

Disabling firewall resolved the issue. Is that recommended?

Did you try opening the required port on the firewall, as opposed to disabling it outright?
