While Container Linux is open source, CoreOS sells support for the OS. on January 2018 Redhat announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire CoreOS, Inc., an innovator and leader in Kubernetes and container-native solutions, for a purchase price of $250 million,

Please save this key, You will use later on Coreos Configuration file.

Boot Coreos in Virtual box or Vmware

you are expecting to see something  like this :

Create md5  password for an user Like osradar user in my case

sudo openssl passwd -1 > cloud-config.yaml

Please edit    the  cloud-config like described  in the   text  bellow and  don’t  forget to  use the ssh pub from the the client to be able  without  password to  core user.

In my case  the user osradar is part from sudo and docker group

- name: osradar
passwd: "$1$jrZWXYCv$7xeeqlOrELkxo49vIgItK/"
- "sudo"
- "docker"

- "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQDMLRh6JpAFS5WJgM6Wf3C6N7OZcFUwOtiRXePNW2Zoy5+4uiLQlaDwhqdqUoawQh6bO6bMOkk7Quw2ZvalBN7AuorWwOEHs0anG4qOs4FGBWjKYX+2Tif4s3KJ82TKyJdrXXgjB/uyk5OXxqM++pW2FHeSDg38NR7tp1e9qx7TCMnBYlk8PB9b6xvWldszy1cv9OsFzzrsYfnkUnmBS8f/0rdfGC24veGso2U2NcztMakWVusgWouNpnbyNk3TcfEWBZzq1AbCncixSEY1tN1m/hWDMoHjv/FtH7DlJhcMYfM4JHvNvIY6joQXXvAYZAnM6S5SZP88Q+y9UGMgdK/5 [email protected]"
