ninuteman repeatedly crashing complaining 'iptables: command not found'


I've installed the DCOS on a 10 bare-metal node cluster with SLES 12.1 OS.

All the functionalities seem to be working except for the VIP.

I found the minuteman service is constantly restarted by systemd.

Here are some logs:


I am wondering why it said iptables not found.

Could it be the reason that SLES is not supported well by DCOS? Must I reinstall DCOS with RHEL/CentOS to get all the things up and running?

SLES is unsupported by DC/OS.

I read that RHEL/CentOS better suit dcos.

Since almost everything is running with our SLES, I would like to continue the evaluation if the this problem is not that hard to fix.

Could you shed some light on this issue?

Can you install iptables, and ipsets? They're dependencies of DC/OS.

As mentioned, the environment is like:

I also checked the /opt/mesosphere/packages, ipset/iptables are not there. Don't know if it is related
