After installation Restart the machine, this should enable the Hyper-V feature
This should also have Docker running and should see the same in system tray
Switch to Windows containers
Right click on Docker icon and switch to Windows Container. See this link for more details as per guide
Download and Prepare for installation
Download and extract the Sitecore Container Deployment Package from the Sitecore Developer Portal and store it on your local workstation or check releases here
Copy and extract SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.1.0.005207.309.zip for e.g:- C:/sc101_install
Navigate to C:\sc101_install\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
Open .env file, we need to fill in this parameters before starting installation. You can find more details in guide for each option.
Download PowerShell script to initialize (init.ps1) the parameters from docker-examples. Parameter values in .env can be populated manually by individually executing the commands for required for each parameter in guide(see Appendices) but I would recommend to use init.ps1 as this is provided by Sitecore and hence tried and tested.
Folder structure should look like this-
Change parameter values in init.ps1 file.
Change the SitecoreAdminPassword, SqlSaPassword and host entries as per requirement. If you are changing host entries also ensure the same is updated in .env file for CM_HOST and ID_HOST parameters. Lets keep the default values.
Populate .env file using init command
Open PowerShell as a Administrator, navigate to the folder having init.ps1 file.
Execute init.ps1 script. You may have to set the execution rights to current user to execute the script-
1. Switch to e.g.- sc101_install folder. Open Solr-SingleDeveloper.json file
2. Change the Install Root for SOLR – DefaultValue
"Description": "The file path to install Solr. This config will add the prefix and solr version e.g C:\Solr becomes C:\Solr\[SolrServicePrefix]Solr-8.4.0",
