    How to Install Docker on Oracle Linux 7

               In this article, we will be using   Oracle Linux yum server to provide the software updates. With following steps, you will be able to install the latest Docker release.

    1. First, update your Oracle Linux 7 instance with correct yum setting. To install the latest Docker release you need ol7_latest, ol7_uekr4, ol7_UEKR5 and ol7_addons enabled.

    [root@dockerserver ~]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

    [root@dockerserver yum.repos.d]# wget http://yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol7.repo

    [root@dockerserver yum.repos.d]#

    2. vi public-yum-ol7.repo and change "enabled=0" to "enabled=1" for all four repos as given above and save the file.

    [root@dockerserver yum.repos.d]# vi public-yum-ol7.repo


    name=Oracle Linux $releasever Latest ($basearch)








    name=Latest Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 5 for Oracle Linux $releasever ($basearch)







    name=Latest Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 4 for Oracle Linux $releasever ($basearch)








    name=Oracle Linux $releasever Add ons ($basearch)





    3. Next you simply use yum install to start the installation.

    yum install docker-engine -y

    [root@dockerserver yum.repos.d]# yum install docker-engine -y
