Great package. Thanks. Looking forward to your next release.

I cant get this to run with the above command it cant connect to docker
First mkdir /opt/portainer-data and after this please try running portainer using
portainer –data /opt/portainer-data
Open your browser to ip_addr:9000
This will set up portainer with all the data files and you can add admin user, connect to docker/kubernetes system from browser.
To check if docker is running on start, use systemctl status docker
I’m trying to write an article about Super Container OS for TechRepublic but I’m having a bit of trouble. I’ve installed the OS twice, adding a password for the admin user each time. But both times when I try to use su to access the root user, it gives me authentication failure. Is there a default password for the root user and why is it not honoring the password I set during installation? I cannot run any docker commands until I can add my user to the docker group and my user isn’t a member of sudo and I can’t add that user to sudo without a working admin account. Thank you!
Hello Jack. Please keep root password blank and proceed to adding new user with password during installation. This user will automatically get sudo rights without requiring root access.
