Description

The Virtual Machines section uses several different terms for the RancherOS VM that provides Docker Container support. There is:

  • Main page "Type" column: "Container Provider"
  • Main page "Actions" button: "Docker Container"
  • VM Creation Wizard "Virtual Machine Wizard Type" option: "Docker Host"
  • Inside the VM Serial Shell: "RancherOS"

This is confusing!

Proposed changes:
1. Search through freenas/webui to find all spots where a Docker Host term is used. Open PRs in freenas/webui to change the labels of the above mentioned items to a single unified term: "Docker Host"
2. Open PRs in freenas/freenas-docs to add replace all instances of Docker Host, Docker VM, Rancher VM, Container VM, etc. with a single term: |dock-vm|. Set up a substitution in conf.py to define the |dock-vm| replacement with the term "Docker Host".

Tim, just spotted this one.

What about
"Docker-HostVM"?

Encompasses the lot, with only 2 extra characters.
Worth a thought.
