#2768 closed enhancement (fixed)

Ubuntu install script changes for better usability with docker

Reported by: jng Owned by: jng

Component: Installer Version:
Severity: trivial Keywords:
Cc: External ID:

Description

  • Add a --no-service-install flag to prevent services being installed (you'd normally run executables as processes and not actual services inside a docker container)
  • Add following flags to prevent auto-starting the required executables (as the Dockerfile itself usually determines the appropriate entry points, and employ tools like supervisor if there are multiple processes to start)
    • --no-mgserver-start
    • --no-tomcat-start
    • --no-httpd-start

As these are primarily automated install concerns, all of the above flags are only applicable if the --headless flag was specified.
