Chapter 2 Installing Oracle Container Runtime for Docker

This chapter describes the steps required to perform an installation of Oracle Container Runtime for Docker on an Oracle Linux 7 host.

Before you install and configure the Docker Engine on an Oracle Linux 7 system, make sure you are running an appropriate release of the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel. Instructions to install UEK are detailed in Section 2.1, “Setting up Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel”.

If you are already running either UEK R4 or UEK R5, you can follow the instructions in Section 2.4, “Installing Oracle Container Runtime for Docker” to complete your installation.
