Creating the volume to store the data directory

After you load the domino-docker tar archive to Docker, create a Docker volume. The Docker volume is a persistent location to hold the Domino data directory

About this task

Create a volume once for a given Domino server. It's easy to remove and recreate a Domino container, for example to upgrade to a new Domino version. When you do, the volume persists and the data directory is reused.


Create the Docker volume for the data directory:
docker volume create <volume name>
For example, to create a volume named notesdata:
docker volume create notesdata
Note: If you use podman, the command is:
podman load --input Domino_1101_DockerImage.tgz
