Important

For the purpose of beta, we will always update rancher/server:preview with the latest preview builds until we GA. After we GA, we will update the appropriate latest and stable tags as required.

Versions

  • rancher/server:v2.0.0-beta4

Change in Accessing the UI

Previously Rancher’s UI was exposed on port 8080, but with the new changes, the docker run command has been updated to:

docker run -d -p 80:80 -p 443:443 rancher/server:preview

You can access the UI at https://<server_ip>.
