RancherOS / NFS / Freenas / Swarm working

This is an example of:

  • Freenas 11.2U7
  • 3 nodes RancherOS deployed the ‘docker host’ way.
  • RancherOS upgraded to 1.5.5 by following this very helpful post
  • Docker version upgraded to
  • Docker Swarm deploy 3 node
  • No Rancher server. I use Portainer instead.
  • NFS shares mounted from Freenas host directly as named volumes into deployed services, not on the host.
  • NFS shares mounted via docker-compose, not pre-declared as docker volumes
  • NFS shares auto-created on the other nodes when scaled to them by the stack with no ‘prep’
