I loaded Alfresco on a Centos 8 server yesterday using the docker-compose method and after the install I could not get to the web page. When I try http://localhost:8080/share I get a 502 Bad Gateway message back. In the log, I see this entry:
I thought that I must have done something wrong with the server prior to adding alfresco. So I created an entirely new Centos 8 server installation. Ran updates on it, installed docker and ran the alfresco docker-compose and got the same result. What is going on?
Something I didn't notice before. In the live log for Alfresco, every couple of seconds I get this:
2020-04-10 15:35:21.044 ERROR (org.alfresco.solr.AlfrescoCoreAdminHandler@5a865416_Worker-11) [ ] o.a.s.t.AbstractTracker Tracking failed for AclTracker - alfresco solr6_1 | java.net.NoRouteToHostException: No route to host (Host unreachable)
Followed by a bunch of lines of information. I am not familiar with what this log is supposed to look like, so I was assuming this was normal. But I now see that this is most likely the cause. But why is it doing this on a fresh install? Two fresh installs?
The Docker images are just not working on Centos 8.
On default settings the Share Container can't talk to Postgres and you get SEVERE failure errors.
SOLR goes round in circles with constant errors about NoRouteToHost.
The only way I could get it to work at all, was to start 'docker-compose up', and then immediately disable firewalld. You can't disable firewalld entirely as it needs it to send some iptables commands and fails. The Proxy container also relies on it. So you end up with this ridiculous workaround.
