Docker Installation Issue


I have been struggling with docker installation of HANA Express Edition. Using a OpenSUSE VM machine for this experiment. Running into two issues -

1- curl does seem to be able to find local file which contains the password.

2- Permissions issue which does let docker installation to create desired directories and files (please see the attached image).

Also, the directory (sub-directory) permissions are as follows -

drwxr-xr-x. 3 hxeadm sapsys 17 Apr 11 11:24 data

Any help / suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for your response. I am following the listed instructions in the above referred link.

    I think "--passwords-url" parameter is not working as it supposed to. Please see the attached screen captures. Any further suggestions will be appreciated.

    Regards, Faroo

    • That parameter should work. From your screenshots, it almost looks like it's an invalid JSON file...try the EXACT contents of the example password file in the instructions and see if you still encounter problems. Also see if you can simplify the pathname to your file.
