Instant Oracle datase server

A Docker image with Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition Release 12.1.0.2.0 running in Oracle Linux 7

  • Default ORCL database on port 1521

Install

  1. Install Docker
  2. $ docker pull wscherphof/oracle-12c
  3. That worked once, but the image was removed by Docker Support on Oracle's request, so you'll need to build it yourself

Run

Create and run a container named orcl:

$ docker run --shm-size=4g -dP --name orcl wscherphof/oracle-12c
989f1b41b1f00c53576ab85e773b60f2458a75c108c12d4ac3d70be4e801b563

Connect

The default password for the sys user is change_on_install, and for system it's manager The ORCL database port 1521 is bound to the Docker host through run -P. To find the host's port:

$ docker port orcl 1521
0.0.0.0:49189

So from the host, you can connect with system/manager@localhost:49189/orcl Though if using Boot2Docker, you need the actual ip address instead of localhost:

$ boot2docker ip

The VM's Host only interface IP address is: 192.168.59.103

If you're looking for a databse client, consider sqlplus

$ sqlplus system/manager@192.168.59.103:49189/orcl

Monitor

The container runs a process that starts up the database, and then continues to check each minute if the database is still running, and start it if it's not. To see the output of that process:

$ docker logs orcl

Enter

There's no ssh daemon or similar configured in the image. If you need a command prompt inside the container, consider nsenter (and mind the Boot2Docker note there)

Build

Should you want to modify & build your own image:

Step 1

1) Download linuxamd64_12102_database_1of2.zip & linuxamd64_12102_database_2of2.zip from Oracle Tech Net

2) Put the 2 zip files in the step1 directory

3) cd to the oracle-12c repo directory

4) $ docker build -t oracle-12c:step1 step1

5) $ docker run --shm-size=4g -ti --name step1 oracle-12c:step1 /bin/bash

6) # /tmp/install/install (takes about 5m)
