VM Creation + PostgreSQL 11 configuration

You can just follow the procedure described in Opentext Documentum 16.7 PostgreSQL Developer Edition

Docker configuration

  • Install docker:
[dmadmin@dctm167docker ~]$ sudo yum install -y yum-utils && device-mapper-persistent-data && lvm2
[dmadmin@dctm167docker ~]$ sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo
[dmadmin@dctm167docker ~]$ sudo yum install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
[dmadmin@dctm167docker ~]$ sudo systemctl start docker
  • Install docker compose and check it is correctly installed:
[dmadmin@dctm167docker dctmdocker]$ sudo yum install -y epel-release
[dmadmin@dctm167docker dctmdocker]$ sudo yum install -y python-pip
[dmadmin@dctm167docker dctmdocker]$ sudo pip install docker-compose
[dmadmin@dctm167docker dctmdocker]$ sudo yum upgrade python*
[dmadmin@dctm167docker dctmdocker]$ docker-compose version
docker-compose version 1.24.1, build 4667896
docker-py version: 3.7.3
CPython version: 2.7.5
OpenSSL version: OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips  26 Jan 2017

Note: As usual, documentation is lacking/wrong and the scripts don’t work at all. This is the list of parameters that I had to change in CS-Docker-Compose_Stateless.yml file in order for docker compose to work:

    image: contentserver/centos/stateless/cs:16.7.0000.0810
    environment:
      - DOCKER_HOST=192.168.94.129
      - DATABASE_HOST=192.168.94.129
      - DOCBASE_NAME=dockerdctm167
    hostname:
      "dockerdctm167"
    container_name:
      "dockerdctm167"
    ports:
      - "1689:1689"
      - "1690:1690"
      - "50000:50000"
      - "50001:50001"
      - "9080:9080"
      - "9082:9082"
      - "9081:9081"
      - "9084:9084"
      - "8081:8081"
      - "8443:8443"
volumes:
 DocbaseName_data:
    driver: local
    driver_opts:
      type: none
      o: bind
      device: /opt/dctmdocker/data
 DocbaseName_share:
    driver: local
    driver_opts:
      type: none
      o: bind
      device: /opt/dctmdocker/share
 DocbaseName_XhiveConnector:
    driver: local
    driver_opts:
      type: none
      o: bind
      device: /opt/dctmdocker/xhive
 DocbaseName_xhive_storage:
    driver: local
    driver_opts:
      type: none
      o: bind
      device: /opt/dctmdocker/xhive_storage

Remember that if something goes wrong you’ll have to:

  • Stop the container
  • Delete the container
  • Delete the volumes created

Once the process finishes, you should be able to idql from the container:

[dmadmin@dockerdctm167 ~]$ idql dockerdctm167
