Deploy Zimbra Collaboration Server using Docker

Zimbra-docker-en.png

Purpose

Install Zimbra Collaboration Server and DNS Server with a Script, in a Single-Server, using Docker.

Resolution

Before you start

This guide is not officially supported by Zimbra, as docker is not in the Operating System, or Virtualization Supported platforms in the System Requirements.

This guide is intended for testing platforms and development, etc.

What is Docker

From the official docker website - Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of a Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.

Advantages of using Docker and the ZimbraEasyInstall Script

  • Time saving
  • Fully automated
  • Easy to use
  • Great for a quick Zimbra Preview

Installing Docker

First you need to install Docker on the server that you would like to use as a host for the docker containers. For example, here the instructions to install docker in Ubuntu 14.04:

wget -qO- https://get.docker.com/ | sh

If you want to install Docker in a different platform, please follow the next guide - https://docs.docker.com/installation/#installation

One of the advantages of using docker is that the host OS does not matter, the containers will work on any platform.

Creating the Zimbra Image

To use the ZimbraEasyInstall script we need a container with Ubuntu 14.04, at least for now. So use the next Dockerfile to create the proper Zimbra image that you will use later to deploy the container:

Dockerfile

  • Download from github
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jorgedlcruz/Zimbra/master/docker/Dockerfile
  • RAW Dockerfile to copy/paste
#################################################################
# Dockerfile to build Zimbra Collaboration 8.6 container images
# Based on Ubuntu 14.04
# Created by Jorge de la Cruz
#################################################################
FROM ubuntu:14.04
MAINTAINER Jorge de la Cruz <jorgedlcruz@gmail.com>

## Install wget ##
RUN sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y wget

VOLUME ["/opt/zimbra"]

EXPOSE 22

EXPOSE 456
EXPOSE 587

EXPOSE 80
EXPOSE 443
EXPOSE 8080
EXPOSE 8443
EXPOSE 7071
EXPOSE 9071

CMD ["/bin/bash"]

Build the image using the Dockerfile

Just run the next command to build the image based in the previous Dockerfile, you can use the name that you want:

sudo docker build -t zimbra_docker .

You will see the next Steps:

Status: Downloaded newer image for ubuntu:14.04
 ---> 07f8e8c5e660
Step 1 : MAINTAINER Jorge de la Cruz <jorgedlcruz@gmail.com>

 ---> 2382c7f298a6
Removing intermediate container d4020e7c9d94
Step 2 : RUN sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y wget
[...]

Deploy the Docker container

Now to deploy the container based on the previous image. As well as publish the Zimbra Collaboration ports, the hostname and the proper DNS, as you want to use bind as a local DNS nameserver within the container: Syntax:

docker run -p PORTS -h HOSTNAME.DOMAIN --dns DNSSERVER -i -t NAMEOFDOCKERIMAGE

Example:

docker run -p 25:25 -p 80:80 -p 456:456 -p 587:587 -p 110:110 -p 143:143 -p 993:993 -p 995:995 -p 443:443 -p 8080:8080 -p 8443:8443 -p 7071:7071 -p 9071:9071 -h zimbra86-docker.zimbra.io --dns 127.0.0.1 --dns 8.8.8.8 -i -t zimbra_docker

This will create the container in few seconds, to which you will be inside the container. Next use the ZimbraEasyInstall script.

Download and use ZimbraEasyInstall

The ZimbraEasyInstall Script is an easy way to install Zimbra Collaboration, without worry of DNS configuration, OS dependencies, etc. Just execute it and after a few minutes, you can have a Zimbra Server up and running for testing.

Download the ZimbraEasyInstall

You can run the Script from the next link - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jorgedlcruz/Zimbra/master/ZimbraEasyInstall

Use the ZimbraEasyInstall

Run the Script adding the TLD domain for your Zimbra Collaboration server, the IP of the DNS server (usually will be the same of the container, but instead you are using different eth interfaces), and the password for the Zimbra Collaboration server. Example:

root@zimbramail:/home/oper# ./ZimbraEasyInstall zimbra.io 192.168.211.40 Zimbra2015

The script takes a few minutes, dependent on the your Internet Speed, and resources.

Access to the Web Client and Admin Console

The Script will take care of everything and after a few minutes you can go to the IP address of your server and use the following URLs:
