Build PowerFolder Docker Image

Since the PowerFolder client image isn't registered to the Docker HUB, we have to build the Docker image first. The PowerFolder client Docker image will be registered to the Docker HUB when the Q&A process is finished. To build the image follow these steps:

  • Get the Dockerfile for the PowerFolder client and put it to a desired location.
  • Rename the file "Dockerfile_client" to "Dockerfile".
  • In the directory with the file "Dockerfile" type "docker build --tag=powerfolder:client ." to your command line.

Configure PowerFolder Server

To create a preferably realistic test scenario every PowerFolder Client will get it's own Folder. To achieve this the PowerFolder Server needs a special profile. This profile ensures that every PowerFolder client from a specified host will create it's own folder. To create a sever profile follow these steps:


Furthermore the option 'Version of the Terms of Service' is set to zero, so every new test user must not accept the terms of services when connecting. Go to Preferences -> Web and set the value from 'Version of the Terms of Service' to 0.

Create PowerFolder Clients as Docker Containers

After the image has been written and the PowerFolder server profile is set up, the docker clients can be created. PowerFolder provides a bash script for the creating process. The following section describes where to download this script and how to use it.
