Deploy on Docker


Deployment steps

To run VMClarity in Docker on a local machine, complete the following steps.

  1. Download the latest VMClarity release.

  2. Create a new directory, extract the files and navigate to the directory.

    mkdir docker-compose-v0.6.0
    tar -xvzf docker-compose-v0.6.0.tar.gz -C docker-compose-v0.6.0
    cd docker-compose-v0.6.0
  3. Start every control plane element with the docker compose file.

    docker compose --project-name vmclarity --file docker-compose.yml up -d --wait --remove-orphans

    The output should be similar to:

    Please note that the image_override.env file enables you to use the images you build yourself. You can override parameters in the docker-compose.yml by passing a custom env file to the docker compose up command via the --env-file flag. The /installation/docker/image_override.env file contains an example overriding all the container images.

  4. Check the running containers in the Docker desktop.

  5. Access the VMClarity UI. Navigate to http://localhost:8080/ in your browser.

Next steps

Complete the First tasks on the UI.

Clean up steps

  1. After you’ve finished your tasks, stop the running containers.

    docker compose --project-name vmclarity --file docker-compose.yml down --remove-orphans
