Docker requirements

Both Docker CE and Docker EE editions include the option to run Kubernetes as a single-node cluster on a local machine using port 8080 . Remediate requires that no other application use ports 8080 and 8443. Note that Docker swarm mode requires additional ports.

If using Docker for Windows, the virtual machine must be configured with 8 GB of memory.

To prevent running out of storage, configure log rotation by editing the log-driver and log-opts parameters within the daemon configuration file that is located here:
  • Linux: /etc/docker/daemon.json

  • Windows: %programdata%\docker\config\daemon.json

To deploy the Docker Compose file, you need to install Docker Compose version 1.24.1.
