Installing additional software on the Rancher docker container

 If you read one of my previous posts to install Rancher on a single docker container, you may have found that it doesn't include several commands like ping, netstat, ss, and even apt. And if you run 'uname -a', you might think that the image you're in is Ubuntu, but it's not. It's SUSE Linux (the same people who maintain Rancher), and they package manager there is accessed via the command 'zypper'. So to install several of the tools you know and love, run the following

zypper install net-tools iproute2 bind fping lsof

That's it. Now you have a few more tools for debugging.
