Opentext Documentum 20.2 Docker with PostgreSQL install guide

This is a step-by-step guide to install Documentum 20.2 in a Linux environment with PostgreSQL 11 and Docker.

Some notes before starting:

  • Bundled scripts are from 16.7 (be careful with the paths)
  • Container image still has a lot of “wasted” space:
    • +0.5GB on /tmp
    • +0.5GB on files for windows/hpux/aix on a Linux image
  • Provided yml scripts are for an outdated docker composer version and don’t work OOTB

Environment

Host:
Windows 10 x64 8GB RAM
VMware Workstation Player 15

Guest:
CentOS 7.7 x64 25GB HD 4GB RAM 2 cores
PostgreSQL 11
Docker 19.03.4

VM Creation + PostgreSQL 11 configuration

You can just follow the procedure described in Opentext Documentum 20.2 PostgreSQL Developer Edition, as I’ve used the same VM for this one.

Docker configuration

  • Install docker:
[dmadmin@dctm202 ~]$ sudo yum install -y yum-utils && device-mapper-persistent-data && lvm2
[dmadmin@dctm202 ~]$ sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo
[dmadmin@dctm202 ~]$ sudo yum install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
[dmadmin@dctm202 ~]$ sudo systemctl start docker
  • Install docker compose and check it is correctly installed:
[dmadmin@dctm202 docker]$ sudo yum install -y epel-release
[dmadmin@dctm202 docker]$ sudo yum install -y python-pip
[dmadmin@dctm202 docker]$ sudo pip install docker-compose
[dmadmin@dctm202 docker]$ sudo yum upgrade python*
[dmadmin@dctm202 docker]$ docker-compose version
docker-compose version 1.25.4, build unknown
docker-py version: 4.2.0
CPython version: 2.7.5
OpenSSL version: OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips  26 Jan 2017

Docker configuration

  • Import image:
[dmadmin@dctm202 docker]$ docker load -i Contentserver_Centos.tar

  • Create PostgreSQL tablespace file (Remember that you also need to add the container’s IP to the pg_hba file in order to be able to connect from the contanier)
[dmadmin@dctm202 dctmdocker]$ su - postgres

-bash-4.2$ mkdir /var/lib/pgsql/11/data/db_dockerdctm167_dat.dat
-bash-4.2$ exit
logout
  • Set required environment variables:
[dmadmin@dctm202 Scripts]$ vi ~/.bash_profile
export APP_SERVER_PASSWORD=dmadmin
export INSTALL_OWNER_PASSWORD=dmadmin
export ROOT_PASSWORD=dmadmin
export DOCBASE_PASSWORD=dmadmin
export DATABASE_PASSWORD=dmadmin
export GLOBAL_REGISTRY_PASSWORD=dmadmin
export AEK_PASSPHRASE=dmadmin

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=192.168.94.130

  • Run the docker compose file:
[dmadmin@dctm202 Scripts]$ docker-compose -f CS-Docker-Compose_Stateless.yml up -d

Creating volume "scripts_DocbaseName_dfc" with default driver

Creating volume "scripts_DocbaseName_share" with local driver
Creating volume "scripts_DocbaseName_xhive_storage" with local driver
Creating volume "scripts_DocbaseName_MigrationUtility" with default driver
Creating dctmdocker202 ... done

 

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@dctm202 ~]$ docker exec -i -t dctmdocker202 /bin/basht dctmdocker202 /bin/bash
[root@dctmdocker202 /]# su - dmadmin

[dmadmin@dctmdocker202 ~]$ idql dctmdocker202

One thought on “Opentext Documentum 20.2 Docker with PostgreSQL install guide

  1. […] So let’s assume we can use an actual container, that can be scaled up quickly, and won’t force us to “redeploy” a Centos OS on each container (for Tomcat, as DA is not a process and should not be “a container”), what should we do? Here we go (Note that I’ve used the same VM used for Opentext Documentum 20.2 Docker with PostgreSQL install guide): […]
