Openshift installation directions

Latest response

I am looking to do some testing with Openshift. Would anyone know of a great step-by-step install guide I could use? I am going to use a rhel6.7 build within VMware. All I find are directions that provide some form of a kickstart build. I want to build it from scratch.


There are two options for installing, quick and advanced (ansible). The link will describe each and link you to the correct docs.

I use this one for my demos and learning purpose. install docker and oc client. "oc cluster up" will deploy an all-in-one openshift cluster, will also make router & registry pods available.

Enjoy :) Swapnil

Hello I am follow the page in order to install OpenShift.

I am checking the prerequisites and says they required Docker 1.12. I look the Docker webpage and found this "" but the version avaible is 17.06. there is no avaible version 1.12

I try also with this other page where I found the rpm "docker-engine-1.12.6-1.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm" with the correct version but there was dependencies that cant found.

Could You tell me If RedHat have repositorire where can I find the "Docker 1.12" in order to continue with the installation of Openshift.

Thanks in advanced

Hi Joel,

Accidentally I've posted the solution in the "comment section" ... so, please read the instructions in my post below.


Hi Joel,

Docker 1.12 is available in the rhel-7-server-extras-rpms repo as you can see on the RHEL packages website :
The prerequisite to install Docker is that the the extras-rpms and the optional-rpms repositories are enabled.

So, enable the "extras" repo - execute : sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms
Enable the "optional" repo - execute : sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms
Update your software sources : sudo yum update and install the Docker related packages : sudo yum install docker

Cheers :)

Thanks for the answer, its works for me.

You're welcome Joel !
I'm glad that it works.

Cheers :)
