Thanks for this image. One Q though: any particular reason why you locked out shell login?

how can we pass db password in docker run if we use a password for dbadmin?

Vertica is installed as localhost so it's not possible to use it as a node of a cluster.
How can we do it ?

While using a persisten datastore I found issues with ownership permissions. The folder /home/dbadmin/docker/catalog/docker/v_docker_node0001_catalog is the one that is checked. I'm using windows, so no unix permission schema is available. Can you please suggest a work around?

I was told "Unable to read database catalogs - cannot start database.",
Is there anything I missed?
