Notes

Supplied IBM Cloud Private Docker packages

IBM Cloud Private provides Docker packages that can be used for installation on boot and cluster nodes.

This package is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Ubuntu systems only. For SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) worker nodes, you must manually install Docker by using the Docker installation External link icon instructions in the SLES documentation.

The Docker package for manual installation is not available for IBM Cloud Private-CE. For IBM Cloud Private-CE, you must manually install an IBM Cloud Private supported version of Docker from the Docker website. See Manually installing Docker from the Docker website.
