Creating the Docker volume to store the data directory

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

Note: Create a volume once for a given Volt server. It is easy to remove and recreate a Volt container – for example to upgrade to a new version of Volt. In the case of an upgrade, 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
