I have a RHEL 6.x VM on my laptop and I have installed docker-engine on it. Now I need to create a base container for RHEL on it and save it in local docker registry.
Now, I want to pull the RHEL base container and install single node hadoop cluster on it and save that new image and push it back to the local docker registry.
The purpose of this activity is to provide a ready made hadoop docker image to all developers in my team. I dont want to pull the cloudera hadoop image from dockerhub because I am behind the firewalls and cannot access docker hub.
I have not found any instructions on either redhat site or docker.io on how to create a base container image for RHEL 6.x or 7. Can any one share the instructions to build RHEL base container on top of a RHEL VM.?
At the end, my stack will look like this:
Single node hadoop cluster
RHEL Docker container
RHEL VM on VMWare Player
