Bundle up a docker regristry local file storage?


I would like to know if it is possible to swap out a docker registry local file storage with another one?

Basically, I am tasked to create a VMware OVA which contains a simple docker registry + some prebuild docker images.

In my build pipeline, I am planning to spin a fresh local registry, push the need images into it, then archive its local storage, and unpack it back to my vmware VM

Very much appreciate advice if I am heading in the right direction


I am able to swap out the /var/lib/docker-registry’s contents with another one.
