Clone the repository with the official Oracle docker images:
git clone https://github.com/oracle/docker-images
Install docker, download Oracle Database, put it to the directory docker-images/OracleDatabase/SingleInstance/dockerfiles/18.3.0 containing the Dockerfile and run the following commands to build and run Enterprise Edition:
mv ~/Downloads/LINUX.X64_180000_db_home.zip .
sudo docker build -t oracle/database:18.3.0 --build-arg DB_EDITION=EE .
sudo docker run -d -it --rm --name oracle18 oracle/database:18.3.0
sudo docker logs oracle18 --tail 100
sudo docker logs oracle18 | grep -i password
and the following commands to build and run Standard Edition 2:
sudo docker build -t oracle/database-se:18.3.0 --build-arg DB_EDITION=SE2 .
sudo docker run -d -it --rm --name oracle18se oracle/database-se:18.3.0
sudo docker logs oracle18se --tail 100
the first string of the docker output contains the generated password for SYS, SYSTEM and PDBADMIN.
The docker installation procedure depends on the system architecture that can be determined with the following commands:
After I installed Docker, I successfully run its test application:
docker run hello-world
Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from library/hello-world
b04784fba78d: Pull complete
Status: Downloaded newer image for hello-world:latest
Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.
To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
to your terminal.
To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
docker run -it ubuntu bash
