  • Download and install both docker and docker-compose ; this may ask you to export certain system variables
    • typically this mean adding some export {VAR}={path} statements to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile

Setup Environment

  • Clone Docker Library Repository (
  • Forward Exposed Docker Ports to the Host {Docker -> [Boot2Docker} -> Host]
    • VBoxManage controlvm "boot2docker-vm" natpf1 "tcp-port8443,tcp,,8443,,8443";
    • VBoxManage controlvm "boot2docker-vm" natpf1 "tcp-port8080,tcp,,8080,,8080";
    • An existing port forward rule can be removed with the following command
      • VBoxManage controlvm "boot2docker-vm" natpf1 delete "tcp-port8443";
      • VBoxManage controlvm "boot2docker-vm" natpf1 delete "tcp-port8080";
  • Start Boot2Docker and initialize shell environment variables
    • boot2docker up
    • $(boot2docker shellinit)
  • Download Docker Images
    • make sure your working directory is XXX/docker-library/cas
    • docker-compose pull

Manage the Environment

  • Start Boot2Docker
    • boot2docker up
  • Forward Local MongoDB Port to Boot2Docker {Host -> [Boot2Docker} -> Docker]

    • autossh -M 20000 -N docker@localhost -R 27017:localhost:27017 -i ~/.ssh/id_boot2docker -p $(boot2docker config 2>&1 | awk '/SSHPort/ {print $3}') -C


    • boot2docker ssh -vnNTR 27017:localhost:27017

  • Navigate to the cas folder in the Docker Library
    • cd <docker library>/cas
  • Create & Start Postgres & CAS Servers
    • cd <docker library>/cas
    • docker-compose up
  • Verify CAS is available
    • Browse to https://localhost:8443
  • Terminate the current docker compose session (docker instances will be shutdown)
    • CTRL+C
  • Start docker compose instances
    • docker-compose start
  • Reattach and view current running docker compose logs
