Install Docker Enterprise

On other Windows systems you will have to setup Docker yourself. There are two ways to install Docker on Windows depending on your Windows version. Docker Installer Method: Windows 10 64-bit Professional, Enterprise, and Education Versions include Hyper-V and therefore will support Docker natively. Follow this guide to install Docker for. 2 – Install Docker on Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise. Windows 10 has the Hyper-V feature available, so we are going to install the Docker Desktop version that includes the Docker Community Edition for Windows. A – Check your virtualization settings. First, we are going to check if Hyper-V is enabled on your machine. If not, you will have to.

Docker consists of the Docker Engine (dockerd.exe), and the Docker client (docker.exe). The easiest way to get everything installed is in the quickstart guide, which will help you get everything set up and run your first container. Install Docker; For scripted installations, see Use a script to install Docker EE.

When I'm working with Windows I love to have a standarized way to install software. Did you remember how we have set up our dev machines a few years ago? Well, about five years ago I found this blog post by security expert Troy Hunt and his 102 simple steps for installing and configuring a new Windows 8 machine showed most of the time cinst this and cinst that. This opened my eyes, wow there is a package manager for Windows. Since then I started with automation tools like Packer and Vagrant to describe repeatable development and test environments. This also lead me to contribute back to the Chocolatey community repository, because I just couldn't cinst packer at that time. So I wrote my first Chocolatey package which is very easy as it only links to the official download URL's from the software vendor.

In these five years I went through several Windows machines and contributed missing Choco packages also for installing the Docker tools I needed.


The following diagram shows you the most relevant Chocolatey packages for Docker. I'll give you a little bit of history and explain why they all exist in the following chapters.


The first Docker tool that landed as a Chocolatey package was the Docker CLI. Ahmet Alp Balkan working at Microsoft at that time ported the Docker CLI to Windows so we had the docker.exe to communicate with remote Docker engines running in a Linux machine. This package was and still is called docker.

Nowadays it might be confusing if people want to run choco install docker and 'just' get the Docker CLI without any Docker Engine. We're in discussion with the Chocolatey team how to softly fix this and transfer the Docker CLI into a new package name called docker-cli to make it more clear.


Docker Toolbox

Docker, Inc. created Docker Toolbox to have all tools and also VirtualBox bundled together. Manuel Riezebosch started a Chocolatey package docker-toolbox for it and still maintains it.
This package is usable for people that cannot run the newer Docker Desktop product. The reasons could be

  • Still running Windows 7
  • Running a Windows 10 Home or LTSB version which is too old
  • Running VirtualBox VM's for other tasks that prevent the installation of Hyper-V

Machine, Compose, ...

I worked with VMware Workstation for years so the Docker Toolbox wasn't my thing. I knew that there is a tool called docker-machine to create Linux VM's with the boot2docker.iso file. That's why I started with the Choco packages for docker-machine, helped maintaining the docker-compose package and added some Docker Machine drivers as Chocolatey packages docker-machine-vmwareworkstation and docker-machine-vmware as well.

This is the fine granular approach to install only the tools you need, but still using the choco install experience.

Docker for Windows

Manuel Riezebosch started a Chocolatey package docker-for-windows which is an excellent work. You can install 'Docker for Windows' product with it which is the successor of 'Docker Toolbox'. But please read the next section to grab the latest version of it.

Docker Desktop

With the new release of Docker Desktop 2.0 for Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise there is also a change in the name. The product 'Docker for Windows' has been renamed to 'Docker Desktop'. It also gets a new version format.

Install Docker Enterprise

That's the reason to start with a new Choco package name. Please unlearn docker-for-windows and just use choco install docker-desktop to get the latest version on your machine.

Thanks Manuel Riezebosch for mainting this choco package!

Windows Server?


If you want to install Docker on a Windows Server 2016 or 2019, there is no Chocolatey package for it.

Please read Windows Containers on Windows Server installation guide from Microsoft or the Docker Enterprise Edition for Windows Server guide from the Docker Store.


The best experience with Docker on a Windows 10 machine is using the Docker Desktop product. Try to grab an up-to-date Windows 10 Pro machine to be all set for it and then run

Otherwise jump over to https://chocolatey.org/search?q=docker and grab one of the other Docker related Chocolatey packages.

Install docker enterprise windows server 2019

I hope this overview of all the Chocolatey packages will give you a better understanding of what is right for your needs. I would love to hear your feedback so please leave a comment below or ask me on Twitter.

Oracle has been one of the most successfull RDBMs in the world over the last decades! And the main goal of this howTO is to build an Oracle and Docker infrastructure for lectures and testing.

Install Docker Enterprise

Host server is running CentOS 7 and running docker and docker-compose, let us start:

Install docker enterprise edition

Install Docker Enterprise Linux

  • Register in Dockerhub.com

  • Follow to Oracle Enterprise 12c official docker image, and subscribe to it clicking on the “Proceed to check out” button.

  • Login to Dockerhub in your server using dockerhub credentials:

  • Pull Oracle Image:

  • Ensure Oracle Image is ok:

  • One of the most hard tasks is to ensure the right permissions to write the new volume on host server, to be able to access to your data. First of all, it is necessary to create users, folders and permissions. Assuming my user is uminho, I executed the following commands:

  • Create docker-compose.yml file in /home/uminho/dockers

  • Create ora.conf file inside /home/uminho/dockers/

  • Start you container

  • Check if it is running

  • Your container should provide “health: starting” as status. After a few minutes it should go live and the status changes to “healthy”.

Install Docker Enterprise Edition

And thats it!! You should have a running Oracle Database in your system! To start creating schemas you should connect to your PDB and use system as your user. Default password is Oradoc_db1.
