Windows Docker Installation

Is there a process to install MineMeld on a Windows isntance of Docker (much like the CentOS/RHEL deployments)?

Hi @El-ahrairah,

I am afraid I don't have much experience runnign Docker on Windows, but once Docker is installed the process should be the same as running MineMeld docker image on CentOS. You can run docker compose in Windows too.

Thanks @lmori

 

As I turns out Docker doesnt function on Windows guests running on ESXi hypervisor due to Hyper-V incompatiblity on such a scenario.

 

I'll endevour to test it in my free time on a thick client, but insuitable for my current use case.

Hi @El-ahrairah,

couldn't you run an Ubuntu VM on ESX ?

Yes I have run it in Ubuntu and CentOS but for various non-technical reasons I have had it requested to run on Windows. But that has now been ruled out :-)

Just for fun I installed Docker on a laptop running Windows Server 2016 and was able to build MineMeld with run command. Seems to work fine.

 

docker run -it -p 8443:443 jtschichold/minemeld

 

As mentioned prior... AFAIK Docker wont run on a Windows VM since it relies on Hyper-V Hypervisor, which generally doesnt wort when running on other hypervisors (ESX etc.). I have only tested on VMWare hypervisors so far and Docker installation fails. Might test on AWS and Azure later, but I dont expect any different results.
