You can install additional components like Docker when you create a Dataproc cluster using the Optional components feature. This page describes the Docker component.
The Dataproc component installs a
on each cluster node and creates a Linux user "docker" and a Linux group
"docker" on each node to run the Docker daemon. This component also creates
service to run the
dockerd service. You should use the
systemd service to manage the
lifecycle of the Docker service.
Install the component
Install the component when you create a Dataproc cluster. The Docker component can be installed on clusters created with Dataproc image version 1.5 or later.
See Supported Dataproc versions for the component version included in each Dataproc image release.
To create a Dataproc cluster that includes the Docker component,
gcloud dataproc clusters create cluster-name
command with the
gcloud dataproc clusters create cluster-name \ --optional-components=DOCKER \ --region=region \ --image-version=1.5 \ ... other flags
- Enable the component.
- In the Google Cloud console, open the Dataproc Create a cluster page. The Set up cluster panel is selected.
- In the Components section:
- Under Optional components, select Docker and other optional components to install on your cluster.
The Dataproc Docker component configures Docker to use Container Registry in addition to the default Docker registries. Docker will use the Docker credential helper to authenticate with Container Registry.
Using the Docker component on a Kerberos cluster
The Docker optional component can be installed on a cluster that is being created with Kerberos security enabled.
