Data Intelligence Docker File Install Fails


I am working with a Data Intelligence instance, attempting to create a Python modeling pipeline that allows me to connect to an external SQL DW. As such, I am attempting to utilise an ODBC connection.

I am attempting to install the Python package 'pyodbc' following the standard Docker process outlined in the documentation: However, this fails when I attempt to build the Docker file. This happens exclusively for the package pyodbc, as I have tested for other packages with no issues.

The code that is being run is a variation of this:


RUN python3.6-m pip install pyodbc

The error that is thrown is:

error building docker image. Docker daemon error: The command '/bin/sh -c python3.6 -m pip --no-cache-dir install pyodbc' returned a non-zero code: 1

I am unable to figure out how to find more detailed error logs for each build attempt. I have tried multiple variants of the above code with different paths, specifying version numbers, and so on.

Could anyone please explain why it is failing here?

Thank you.

    Fryderyk, I recommend to run your docker first locally where you get far more detailed error messages before building a docker on DI. Of course you cannot use the SAP provided images but for testing purposes you might use "opensuse/leap:15.0."

    When I use the following docker image I can reproduce your error and you can start from there to solve the challenges installing jodbc. For more details you might have a look at my blog as a guideline. Some Notes on Docker File Creation on SAP Data Intelligence


    FROM opensuse/leap:15.0

    RUN zypper --non-interactive update && \

    zypper --non-interactive install --no-recommends --force-resolution \

    python3 \

    python3-pip \

    gcc=7 \

    gcc-c++=7 \

    libgthread-2_0-0=2.54.3 RUN python3 -m pip install pyodbc

    I have this error

    [object Object],ERROR,"Failed to run graph: failed to deploy graph: failed to prepare graph description: failed to select image: no matching dockerfile found for group 'group1' with runtime tags: {""docker4"": """", ""tornado"": ""5.0.2"", ""python36"": """", ""opensuse"": """"}
