Error while instantiating chaincode

Hi Team, We are setting up Hyperledger fabric on Rancher-Kubernetes.  Due to Security Policy we cannot access hostPath on Rancher-Kubernetes.  We are getting below error while instantiating chaincode :

2018-11-06 09:21:59.564 UTC [chaincodeCmd] checkChaincodeCmdParams -> INFO 001 Using default escc

2018-11-06 09:21:59.564 UTC [chaincodeCmd] checkChaincodeCmdParams -> INFO 002 Using default vscc

Error: Error endorsing chaincode: rpc error: code = Unknown desc = error starting container: Post http://unix.sock/containers/create?name=nid1-org1peer1-cc-1.0: dial unix /host/var/run/docker.sock: connect: no such file or directory

Usage:

peer chaincode instantiate [flags]

Hey @Vikas! 

The error says,

dial unix /host/var/run/docker.sock: connect: no such file or directory

Have you started the docker services and daemons? 

You can check it with the following command:

service docker status

In most cases, the following command fixes this error:

service docker start 

or

systemctl start docker

Please let us know if this works :-)
