To Install Docker on Oracle Linux

Introduction :

The Docker is a operating system virtualization technology allows applications to be packaged as containerized files. This is fundamental to cloud computing, as containerized applications can run on any infrastructure, regardless of the provider.

Installation steps:

Step 1 : check the version of the OS

[root@linuxhelp ~]# cat /etc/os-release 

NAME="Oracle Linux Server"








PRETTY_NAME="Oracle Linux Server 8.4"





Step 2 : Install yum-utils packages by using the below command

[root@linuxhelp ~]# yum install yum-utils

Last metadata expiration check: 1 day, 5:04:54 ago on Wednesday 15 December 2021 02:35:28 AM IST.

Package yum-utils-4.0.21-3.0.1.el8.noarch is already installed.

Dependencies resolved.

Nothing to do.


Step 3 : Add Docker Repository by using the below command

[root@linuxhelp ~]#  yum-config-manager --add-repo

Adding repo from:

Step 4 : Install Docker packages by using the below command

[root@linuxhelp ~]# yum install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

Is this ok [y/N]: y

Downloading Packages:

Step 5 : start the Docker services by using the below command

[root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl start docker

Step 6 : Enable the Docker service by using the below command

[root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl enable docker

Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/ → /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service.

Step 7 : check the Docker status by using the below command

 [root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl status docker

● docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine

   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)

   Active: active (running) since Thu 2021-12-16 09:55:32 IST; 27s ago

Step 8 : Download and Run the Docker image from Online Docker Library

[root@linuxhelp ~]# docker run hello-world

Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally

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

By this the installation of Docker on Oracle Linux has been completed

Good book to avoid all this mess -->
