The objective is to install Docker engine on Redhat 7 Linux using native docker script.
Internet connection as well as a privileged access to your Redhat 7 Linux is required.
- # – requires given linux commands to be executed with root privileges either directly as a root user or by use of
- $ – requires given linux commands to be executed as a regular non-privileged user
Installation of docker using a native docker script is one command, straight forward process. Before you run the below docker installation command ensure that
curl package is installed on your system:
# curl --version curl 7.29.0 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu)
Once ready, install docker using
curl command which will download and execute a native docker installation script:
# curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh + sh -c 'sleep 3; yum -y -q install docker-engine' warning: /var/cache/yum/x86_64/7Server/docker-main-repo/packages/docker-engine-1.12.3-1.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm: Header V4 RSA/SHA512 Signature, key ID 2c52609d: NOKEY Importing GPG key 0x2C52609D: Userid : "Docker Release Tool (releasedocker)

Enable and Start docker
To enable docker to start on your Redhat 7 Linux after reboot run the following linux command:
# systemctl enable docker Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/docker.service to /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service.
To start docker daemon run:
# systemctl start docker
To test docker installation run:
# docker run hello-world Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally latest: Pulling from library/hello-world c04b14da8d14: Pull complete Digest: sha256:0256e8a36e2070f7bf2d0b0763dbabdd67798512411de4cdcf9431a1feb60fd9 Status: Downloaded newer image for hello-world:latest Hello from Docker! This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.
You can list your new container with:
# docker ps -a
