===Creating the Zimbra Image===
+
=== Downloading the image===
The content of the Dockerfile and the start.sh is based on the next Script -  [[Install_Zimbra_Collaboration_and_a_DNS_Server_with_Script|ZimbraEasyInstall]]. The Dockerfile creates a Ubuntu Server 14.04 image and install on it wget, then when the container is launched, automatically starts with the '''start.sh''' script:
+
The first step is to pull this image into your docker environment, for that just run the next:
====Dockerfile & start.sh====
+
  docker pull jorgedlcruz/zimbra
* '''Download from github'''
 
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jorgedlcruz/Zimbra/master/docker/Dockerfile
 
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jorgedlcruz/Zimbra/master/docker/start.sh
 
 
 
====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, in this case is '''zimbra_docker''':
 
  sudo docker build -t zimbra_docker .
 
 
 
You will see the next Steps:
 
<pre>Status: Downloaded newer image for ubuntu:14.04

Step 1 : MAINTAINER Jorge de la Cruz <jorgedlcruz@gmail.com>

Removing intermediate container d4020e7c9d94
 
Step 2 : RUN sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y wget
 
[...]</pre>
 
 
 
===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, also we will send the password that we want to our Zimbra Server like admin password, mailbox, LDAP, etc.:
 
'''Syntax:'''
 
docker run -p PORTS -h HOSTNAME.DOMAIN --dns DNSSERVER -i -t -e PASSWORD=YOURPASSWORD 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 -e PASSWORD=Zimbra2015 zimbra_docker
 
 
 
This will create the container in few seconds, and run automatically the start.sh:
 
* Install a DNS Server based in bind9 and the dnsutils package
 
* Configure all the DNS Server to resolve automatically internal the MX and the hostname that we define while launch the container.
 
* Install the OS dependencies for Zimbra Collaboration 8.6
 
* Create 2 files to automate the Zimbra Collaboration installation, the keystrokes and the config.defaults.
 
* Launch the installation of Zimbra based only in the .install.sh -s
 
* Inject the config.defaults file with all the parameters that is autoconfigured with the Hostname, domain, IP, and password that you define before.
 
  
The script takes a few minutes, dependent on the your Internet Speed, and resources.
+
=== 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
  
===Access to the Web Client and Admin Console===
+
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 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:
 
  
 +
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.
 
* Web Client - https://YOURIP

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, 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.
