Rancher Setup issues


After being pointed toward this installation option, I’ve ran into some problems.

The ec2 instance was brought up ok.
I’ve assigned an IAM role to the instance with permissions as detailed here
And, logged into it using the instance-id and account number successfully.
Hitting the next button on the next screen trys to get the /aws/permissions page and fails.
I’m not sure if this points to the root cause. Digging through the instance, I’ve reached a log file (/var/lib/suse-rancher-setup/log/production.log) which logs this error every time I try to reload the /aws/permissions page.

Have I missed something in the process?


Hi, I have same issue, not able to continue with setup.

Thanks for posting. We’ve identified the issue, and are working expediting an update to both resolve this and roll out some great new features.

In the meantime SUSE Rancher Setup v20230114 is being restricted in the AWS Marketplace. Please try again with the prior version v20221013, which does not have this issue.

Thanks for updating.
I’ll test it tomorrow.
