For my machine on Task Manager it shows Virtualisation is Disabled. However, Hyper-V Support is indicated as “Yes”. Is there any hope for me to install it without upgrading my Windows to Pro (which I won’t). Thanks for helping me learn Docker. Step 3: Install Docker on RHEL 7 Server / Desktop. We can now Install Docker on RHEL 7 by running the commands below. Sudo yum install -y docker device-mapper-libs device-mapper-event-libs sudo systemctl enable -now docker.service. Confirm service status.
- Docker CE and EE are an evolution of the Docker Platform designed to meet the needs of developers, ops and enterprise IT teams. No matter the operating system or cloud infrastructure, Docker CE and EE lets you install, upgrade, and maintain Docker with the support and assurances required for your particular workload. Here are additional resources.
- I’ve always been wondering how Docker works in this regards, and whether I should either make as many “RUN apt-get install” commands as possible, or if I should instead try to use as few RUN commands as possible, as these increases the number of layers (?). So for example: RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y python-qt4 python-pyside python-pip python3-pip python3.
I admit it, I was not a friend of Oracle databases running in Docker containers for a long time. My database systems for testing and demo purposes were all running in VMware, Virtual Box or in the Oracle Cloud. But I have used the Windows Subsystem for Linux since beginning, to work with the Oracle Oracle Cloud Infrastructure CLI, Git Integration etc. And what I really like is the WSL extension for Visual Studio Code which gives me to chance, to edit Ansible Vault files in Windows without any additional Linux based VM running.
With the update of the existing Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) architecture to version 2, the Docker Desktop for Windows is now fully integrated and able to run Docker container in WSL as a lightweight VM. Now it’s time to change my mind, why not use Docker to try out new Oracle features, do some development stuff and more?
What to we need to run Oracle databases in WSL 2 Docker Containers?
- WSL 2
- Docker Desktop for Windows
- Docker images with an Oracle Database – I may use the images (oehrlis/docker) from my workmate Stefan Oehrli (oradba.ch)- merci vöumou
This blog post shows you how to setup WSL 2 to run Docker images. Sure, you can use the Oracle provided Docker images or self created images too. But I have verified the Oracle repository today, the Dockerfile version is 19.3.0. And I don’t have the passion, to create new Dockerfiles for example to run 19.8 and download additional RU software.
Installing Windows Subsystem 2 for Linux
Enable Windows Subsystem for Linux basic Functionality
Start Windows PowerShell as Administrator and enable WSL.
