Installer Containers

This section describes how you can obtain the Installer as a Docker container.

A Installer container is a Docker container that contains the Installer. You can use a Installer container to perform basic installer operations from a node that is not necessarily a part of a cluster. For example, from a Installer container, you can perform the following actions:
  • Start and run the web-based Installer to install a new cluster, apply a patch, or perform an update.
  • Run Installer Stanza commands to probe an installed cluster.

You can create your own Installer container by using the script. Or you can download a pre-built container image for theInstaller.
