I have a bare metal server where I’d like to evaluate Rancher management and deployment on a small scale.
I’ve decided on installing Rancher on this server following the command from here: https://rancher.com/docs/rancher/v2.x/en/installation/other-installation-methods/single-node-docker/advanced/#running-rancher-rancher-and-rancher-rancher-agent-on-the-same-node
which is stated as:
docker run -d --restart=unless-stopped \ -p 8080:80 -p 8443:443 \ --privileged \ rancher/rancher:latest
This is working just fine, I can connect to the management interface and poke around.
As a next step I wanted to try deploying a small service/app, and found the Quick Start guide: https://rancher.com/docs/rancher/v2.x/en/quick-start-guide/workload/quickstart-deploy-workload-ingress/
I have followed this guide a couple of times, as far as I can tell, to the letter. The Workload seem to work out just fine following the guide, the status is set to “Active” and I can connect to the container.
However, when I follow the steps of adding an Ingress Load Balancer, the status is set to “Initializing” and never changes no matter what I do.
What am I missing here?
