What is the recommended way to shut down and restart a rancher cloud?

Hi all

Apologies for the newby question.

I am just beginning to work with rancher on my personal projects and I am impressed with it.

The confusing thing for me is what you do if you shut down your rancher server and then restart it? How do you return your hosts and services back into a working state?

My scenario is that each evening I do a bit of work but I do not want to leave my rancher machines running in AWS during the day. At the moment it looks like I have to rebuild everything from scratch each time.

Is there a recommended way of doing this?


Launch Rancher server container with --restart=always and also mount it to external database. And, launch all your containers in rancher with --restart=always. So that when you start your VMs, the containers will start automatically.
