Build your own OL7 container:

Basically, you will need to install Oracle Linux 7 and Docker on same machine and create the image from there.

Download and Install OL7

You can use install scripts and information from here:

Install Docker

Add the EPEL Repository

Docker is part of Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL), which is a community repository of non-standard packages for the RHEL distribution.

First, we’ll install the EPEL repository:

rpm -iUvh

Then, as a matter of best practice, we’ll update our packages:

yum update -y


Now let’s install Docker by installing the docker-io package:

yum -y install docker-io

Once the installation completes, we’ll need to start the Docker daemon:

systemctl docker start

Make the OL7 Docker Image

chmod +x
sudo ./ youruserid/ol7
Docker Pull Command
