===What is Docker===
[https://www.docker.com/whatisdocker/ '''From the official docker website'''] - ''Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of 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.''

===Installing docker===
 
First you need to install docker in the server that you will use like 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 https://docs.docker.com/installation/#installation]
 
 
 
One of the advantage to use docker is that doesn't matter the Host OS, the containers will work on any platform.
 
 
 
===Create the Zimbra Image===
 
To use the [[Install_Zimbra_Collaboration_and_a_DNS_Server_with_Script|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'''

===Installing Docker===
====Build the image using the Dockerfile====
+
First you need to install Docker on the server that you would like to use as a host for the docker containers.  If you want to install Docker, please follow the next guide - [https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/ https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/]
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:

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

===Deploy the docker container===
+
=== Downloading the image===
Now is time to deploy the container based in the previous image, also you need to publish the Zimbra Collaboration ports, the hostname and the proper DNS, as you want to use bind like local DNS nameserver in the container:
+
The first step is to pull this image into your docker environment, for that just run the next:
'''Syntax:'''
+
  docker pull jorgedlcruz/zimbra
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, and you will be inside the container, let's use now the ZimbraEasyInstall script.  
+
=== Creating Zimbra Container ===
 +
Now that we have an image called jorgedlcruz/zimbra, we can do a docker run with some special parameters, like this:
 +
docker run -p 25:25 -p 80:80 -p 465:465 -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 zimbra-docker.zimbra.io --dns 127.0.0.1 --dns 8.8.8.8 -i -t -e PASSWORD=Zimbra2017 jorgedlcruz/zimbra
  
===Download and use ZimbraEasyInstall===
+
As you can see we tell the container the ports we want to expose, and on which port, we also specify the container hostname, the password foir the Zimbra Administrator Account, and the image to use.
The '''ZimbraEasyInstall''' Script is an easy way to install Zimbra Collaboration, without be worry of the DNS configuration, OS dependcies, etc. Just execute it and after a few minutes have Zimbra up and running.
 
  
====Download the ZimbraEasyInstall====
+
That's it! You can visit now the IP of your Docker Machine using HTTPS, or try the Admin Console with HTTPS and port 7071.
You can run the Script from the next link - [https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jorgedlcruz/Zimbra/master/ZimbraEasyInstall 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, depends of 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 of your server and use the next URL:
 
 
* Web Client - https://YOURIP
 
* Web Client - https://YOURIP
 
* Admin Console - https://YOURIP:7071
 
* Admin Console - https://YOURIP:7071

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, 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. If you want to install Docker, please follow the next guide - https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/

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

Downloading the image

The first step is to pull this image into your docker environment, for that just run the next:

docker pull jorgedlcruz/zimbra

Creating Zimbra Container

Now that we have an image called jorgedlcruz/zimbra, we can do a docker run with some special parameters, like this:

docker run -p 25:25 -p 80:80 -p 465:465 -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 zimbra-docker.zimbra.io --dns 127.0.0.1 --dns 8.8.8.8 -i -t -e PASSWORD=Zimbra2017 jorgedlcruz/zimbra

As you can see we tell the container the ports we want to expose, and on which port, we also specify the container hostname, the password foir the Zimbra Administrator Account, and the image to use.

That's it! You can visit now the IP of your Docker Machine using HTTPS, or try the Admin Console with HTTPS and port 7071.
