Adding Azure Hosts
Rancher supports provisioning Microsoft Azure hosts using
Launching Azure Host(s)
- Select the number of hosts you want to launch using the slider.
- Provide a Name and if desired, Description for the host.
Provide the Account Access information from your Azure account. This includes Username, Password, Subscription ID and Subscription Certificate.
Note: If you paste in your subscription certificate, it must be a base64 string.
- Select the Image that you want launched. Whatever
docker machine supports for Azure is also supported by Rancher.
- Select the Size of the image.
- Update the SSH port, Docker port and Docker Swarm Master Port if they will be different from the default.
- Add your Publish Settings File.
- Select which Region your Azure resources are part of.
- (Optional) Add labels to hosts to help organize your hosts and to schedule services/load balancers or to program external DNS records using an IP other than the host IP.
- (Optional) In Advanced Options, customize your
docker-machine create command with Docker engine options.
- When complete, click Create.
Once you click on create, Rancher will create the Azure virtual machine and launch the rancher-agent container in the droplet. In a couple of minutes, the host will be active and available to start adding services.
