Install Rancher on OpenSuse Tumbleweed

Install Docker:

sudo zypper install docker
sudo systemctl enable docker
sudo systemctl start docker
sudo usermod -G docker -a $USER

NOTE - After installing docker the service was broken and would not start. I restarted the host and that fixed the docker service ( after a ton of wasted time troubleshooting ).

Install Rancher:

sudo docker run --privileged -d --restart=unless-stopped -p 80:80 -p 443:443 rancher/rancher

I installed this on a VM with a hostname in DNS ( tiger2 ). For this example the web UI can be reached at a URL like this:


If you don’t have your hostname in DNS then just substitute in the IP address.

Once you’ve loaded the web UI, you can just follow the instructions that it gives you to finish the install.
