HomeLab – Deployment of an HA Kubernetes cluster (Part 7 – Rancher deployment)

Finally time to install Rancher!

 helm install rancher rancher-stable/rancher \ 
  --namespace cattle-system \
    --set hostname=Rancher_FQDN \
  --set bootstrapPassword=admin

After a few seconds you will get a prompt but it is not ready yet. You can check the installation with

kubectl --namespace cattle-system rollout status deploy/rancher

And after it is finished verify with

kubectl --namespace cattle-system get deploy rancher

Open your favorite browser and browse to the FQDN.

Change the password (needs to be 12 characters or more) and Welcome to Rancher

I suggest to change to Dark mode but it is up to you
