Running Oracle 19c in a Docker container: part 1: out of disk space on my VM

This should be filed under “Can you? Yes. Should you? Probably not”

I tried creating a Docker container running Oracle 19c from Oracle official dockerfiles, and straight out of the gate ran out of diskspace:



!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
checkSpace.sh: ERROR - There is not enough space available in the docker container.
checkSpace.sh: The container needs at least 18 GB, but only 14 GB are available.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Removing intermediate container b53a5e13a45c
The command '/bin/sh -c chmod ug+x $INSTALL_DIR/*.sh &&     sync &&     $INSTALL_DIR/$CHECK_SPACE_FILE &&     $INSTALL_DIR/$SETUP_LINUX_FILE &&     rm -rf $INSTALL_DIR' returned a non-zero code: 1


ERROR: Oracle Database Docker Image was NOT successfully created.
ERROR: Check the output and correct any reported problems with the docker build operation.

$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           798M  1.3M  797M   1% /run
/dev/sda2        30G   12G   17G  41% /

The container needs at least 18GB? Of course it does.

Time to expand my VM disk space (using notes from when I previously had to do this here), and try again.
