Use a Private Registry

Instructions for setting up Verrazzano using a private container registry

You can install Verrazzano using a private Docker-compliant container registry. This requires the following:

  • Loading all required Verrazzano container images into your own registry and repository.
  • Installing the Verrazzano platform operator with the private registry and repository used to load the images.

To obtain the required Verrazzano images and install from your private registry, you must:

  1. Download the Verrazzano ZIP file from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud:
    • In your browser, go to Oracle Software Delivery Cloud and log in with your credentials.
    • In the drop-down menu next to the search bar, select Download Package.
    • In the search bar, enter Verrazzano Enterprise Container Platform and click Search.
    • Select the DLP: Oracle Verrazzano Enterprise Edition 1.0 link. This will add it to your download queue.
    • Select the Continue link.
    • Accept the license agreement and click Continue.
    • Download the file:
      • To download the ZIP file directly, select the file link in the list.
      • To download the ZIP file using Oracle Download Manager, click Download and run the Oracle Download Manager executable.
  2. Prepare to do the private registry install:
    • Unzip the ZIP archive to a desired directory location. There will be two files, a compressed TAR file containing the product files and a checksum file.
    • Go to the expanded archive directory.
    • (Optional) Validate the checksum and the TAR file match. For example,
      $ shasum -c  verrazzano_1.0.0.tar.gz.sha256
      # Sample output
      verrazzano_1.0.0.tar.gz: OK
    • Expand the TAR file, for example, tar xvf verrazzano_1.0.0.tar.gz.
  3. Load the product images into your private registry and install Verrazzano using the instructions in the file that is packaged with the TAR file.
