Thread: Docker & SUSE Manager

    Docker & SUSE Manager

    Hi,
    we are implementing Docker in our environment and I want to start bulding my own images/containers. The problem: how to install/update software inside my images? We are using SUSE Manager and the Docker hosts are registered against it, do not have acces neither to SCC nor a SMT. Any ideas?
    Greetings
    Andreas

    Re: Docker & SUSE Manager

    While I can see that this kind of spans two issues, I think in this case
    the issue is probably more appropriate in the Virtualization area than the
    SUSE Manager area, as I do not think SUSE Manager will be directly
    involved in managing your images. As a result, your duplicate thread is
    probably the best place for this:

    yes, I know this blog.

    but in the usage of this feature some steps are not discribed.

    First I have to say I am a docker beginner. And the SUSE docker examples at https://www.suse.com/documentation/s...es_docker.html are not working behind our company firewall.

    So, my hope was SUMA 3.1 is the solution.

    In the meantime I build up a docker-registry with ssl and ldap enabled portus. This seams to be working.

    on suse manager, one host is enabled as container-build-host. the salt story did not work ... first add the container channels, after this maybe the stuff is working.

    I try to follow the blog but the image profiles details not shown.

    there are some parameters

    Label: <the name> - I understood
    Image Type: Dockerfile - only Dockerfile available, choice
    Path: <git-url> - is real a git necessary? with authentication and so on? why not a http/https url for testing ...
    Activation Key: <activationkey> - for the repos ... is a separate key necessary with special channels? salt states ...
    Custom Info Values: <our custom fields> - how could I use them at the container? some special salt states inside of the container

    this raises more questions than answers.

    regards
    Franz

    https://wiki.microfocus.com/index.ph.../imagebuilding has an initial description of the container image building feature of SUSE Manager 3.1.
    A more elaborate chapter in the best practices manual will follow.

    Well, building a container with Docker and a Dockerfile was the obvious initial choice for us.
    There are other means (like Salt - dockerng) and we'll see what gains sufficient popularity to be supported in SUSE Manager.

    Yes, based on the feedback from customers, sales, and consulting, managing Dockerfiles with git is the most popular choice.

    Setting up a git server is simple, Google provides many examples

    The activation key determines the channels visible to the client. Building containers is all about having the 'right' packages in the container. This is ensured via the activation key.

    Leave this field empty for your initial tests.

    Re: Docker & SUSE Manager

    I am also struggling with this, for example;

    1) For the Image Store URI, I intend to use a Portus registry. Do I need
    to put the FQDN and port number or just FQDN? For example,
    portus.domain.com:5000 ?

    2) For the profiles, does the git path require no authentication? It is
    not clear how I should authenticate to my git repository?

    3) Where can I find the logs? I only see in the Events > Pending of the
    Container Build host that the action has not yet been picked up (it
    never gets picked up so I assume I did something wrong)

    Thanks

    Looks like you've asked this through multiple channels ... :-/

    We will update https://wiki.microfocus.com/index.ph.../imagebuilding with all required information.
