By Default web management console is enabled. To disable add env variable:

#You can Enable/Disable it on any time

docker run -d -p 1521:1521 -v /my/oracle/data:/u01/app/oracle -v /my/oracle/init/SCRIPTSorSQL:/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d sath89/oracle-12c

By default Import from docker-entrypoint-initdb.d is enabled only if you are initializing database (1st run).

To customize dump import use IMPDP_OPTIONS env variable like -e IMPDP_OPTION="REMAP_TABLESPACE=FOO:BAR"
To run import at any case add -e IMPORT_FROM_VOLUME=true

In case of using DMP imports dump file should be named like ${IMPORT_SCHEME_NAME}.dmp

User credentials for imports are ${IMPORT_SCHEME_NAME}/${IMPORT_SCHEME_NAME}

If you have an issue with database init like DBCA operation failed, please reffer to this issue


  • Web management console HTTPS port
  • Add functionality to run custom scripts on startup, for example User creation
  • Add Parameter that would setup processes amount for database (Currently by default processes=300)
  • Spike with clustering support
  • Spike with DB migration from 11g

In case of any issues please post it here.

I am trying to build an image using sath89/oracle-12c as base image.
My dockerfile looks something like
FROM sath89/oracle-12c
RUN ["","run"]
when I run docker build , the image creation stops at the and does not proceed further in the docker file.
Any means to make it work?

I was able to successfully pull the image by writing the docker file FROM:sath89 and than RUN I want to extend the docker file with more commands like copying few more softwares and RUN. But doesnot exit with out CTRL+C which makes the image creation fail. Can you please how i can extend and write docker file.

Are you still planning to add the functionality to run custom scripts on startup, for example User creation?

I can get this to run fine and connect to it. However, I am really interested in how I can load a dump file made with exp into a DB running in this container. I see the notes above about it, but struggling to make it work. Are there some more details examples elsewhere?

Can you please release each (or at least major) new update as separate version using "Tags", we are using your image as base and with usage of Tag "latest" we can't guarantee that building of our image will be successful.

Please, add $ORACLE_HOME/bin to PATH env for oracle user.
