MapR Installer Containers

This section describes how you can obtain the MapR Installer as a Docker container.

A MapR Installer container is a Docker container that contains the MapR Installer. You can use a MapR Installer container to perform basic installer operations from a node that is not necessarily a part of a MapR cluster. For example, from a MapR Installer container, you can perform the following actions:
  • Start and run the web-based MapR Installer to install a new cluster, apply a patch, or perform an update
  • Run MapR Installer Stanza commands to probe an installed cluster

You can create your own MapR Installer container by using the mapr-setup.sh script. Or you can download a pre-built container image for the MapR Installer.
