DCTM 7.3 PostgreSQL with Docker install guide

This is a step-by-step guide to install Documentum 7.3 with Docker in a Linux host with PostgreSQL 9.4.

Environment

Host:
Windows 10 x64 8GB RAM
VMware Workstation Player 12

Guest:
CentOS 7 x64 25GB HD 4GB RAM 2 cores
PostgreSQL 9.4
Docker 1.12
Documentum 7.3 PostgreSQL docker tar file

VM Creation

Mount the CentOS 7 DVD image, boot the machine and follow the steps. You can choose to let EasyInstall do the work for you. I used minimal package install to save resources, named the machine vm-dctm73, configure the network and set the root password.

OS Configuration

Follow the instructions posted in the DCTM 7.3 PostgreSQL Dev. Edition post for configuring the OS and PostgreSQL 9.4 (no need to configure the ODBC, just install PostgreSQL and phpPgAdmin). This time I’ve used “dmdocker” instead of “dmadmin”.

Extra steps to perform:

  • Create the following folder structure:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ sudo mkdir /opt/dctmdocker
[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ sudo chown dmdocker.dmdocker /opt/dctmdocker
[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ mkdir /opt/dctmdocker/installers
[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ mkdir /opt/dctmdocker/data
[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ mkdir /opt/dctmdocker/share

  • Update the distribution (you need at least kernel 3.10.0.229, you can check the version by running “uname -r”)

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ sudo yum update

  • Enable connections from 172.18.x.x to the database (IP used by docker containers, you can set this up after you run a docker contanier and know which IP range will be using, or you can enable access for anyone):

[dmadmin@vm-dctm73 opt]$ sudo vi /var/lib/pgsql/9.4/data/pg_hba.conf
host    all             all             172.18.0.1/24           md5
[dmadmin@vm-dctm73 opt]$ sudo systemctl restart postgresql-9.4

And don’t forget to copy the Documentum 7.3 docker tar file to /opt/dctmdocker/installers

Docker Configuration

  • Install docker:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh

  • I had to remove docker selinux due to incompatibily problems so:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ yum remove docker-engine-selinux

  • Add user to docker group to avoid using sudo every time we use the docker command:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ sudo usermod -aG docker dmdocker

  • Enable the service and start docker daemon:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ sudo systemctl enable docker.service
[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ sudo systemctl start docker

  • Check docker is correctly installed by running the hello-world container:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ docker run –rm hello-world

  • Install docker-compose (using root):

[root@vm-dctm73 ~]# curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.9.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
[root@vm-dctm73 ~]# chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Content Server Configuration

  • Import the docker image:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 installers]$ docker load -i Contentserver_Centos.tar

  • Check the image is listed now in the local docker repository:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ docker images
REPOSITORY          TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             SIZE
contentserver_centos    7.3.0000.0214        5a22b41bc55f        10 seconds ago      2.252 GB
hello-world         latest              c54a2cc56cbb        5 months ago        1.848 kB

  • Create the tablespace file:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 cs]$ su –
[root@vm-dctm73 ~]# su – postgres
-bash-4.2$ mkdir /var/lib/pgsql/9.4/data/db_centdb_dat.dat

  • Configure the required environment variables (remember that lockbox passphrase requires at least one uppercase letter, one symbol and one number):

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ vi .bash_profile

#app server admin password
export APP_SERVER_ADMIN_PASSWORD=dmadmin
#This is install owner password
export INSTALL_OWNER_PASSWORD=dmadmin
#This is root user password
export ROOT_USER_PASSWORD=dmadmin
#Repository password. Required only for stateless configuration
export REPOSITORY_PASSWORD=dmadmin
#External Data base Server Admin password
export EXTERNALDB_ADMIN_PASSWORD=dmadmin
#Global Registry password
export BOF_REGISTRY_USER_PASSWORD=dmadmin
#AEK passphrase
export AEK_PASSPHRASE=dmadmin
export LOCKBOX_PASSPHRASE=Documentum.73

  • Configure statelesscs.conf. Few notes:
    • Change IMAGE_NAME to the name of your image in your docker repository.
    • IP here is the IP of the virtual machine (CentOS) because our database is installed in the host.
    • ENABLE_LOCKBOX=false doesn’t work. It didn’t work for me when I did the (Unofficial) D7.2 Developer Docker edition (I) and it still doesn’t work. It’s probably a misconfiguration of the installer though.

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ vi /opt/dctmdocker/installers/Scripts/statelesscs.conf

  • Run the configuration script:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 ~]$ cd /opt/dctmdocker/installers/Scripts/
[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 Scripts]$ chmod 755 stateless_config.sh
[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 Scripts]$ ./stateless_config.sh

  • Now you can get a terminal from the container:

[dmdocker@vm-dctm73 Scripts]$ docker exec -i -t dctm73docker /bin/bash

And check the progress of the installation in /opt/dctm_docker/logs/centstateless/cont-dctm73.log

If anything fails and you need to run the script again, make sure the created volumes (docker volume ls) are removed before running again the script or the installer will fail.
