OpenShift provides an internal container image registry that can be deployed in an OpenShift environment to locally manage images.
Docker Registry Management
It is likely that the registry was deployed automatically during the OpenShift installation process.
Check if the registry service is already present:
$ oc adm registry --dry-run Docker registry "docker-registry" service exists
Get deployment configuration:
$ oc get dc -n default NAME REVISION DESIRED CURRENT TRIGGERED BY docker-registry 1 2 2 config registry-cosole 1 1 1 config router 1 2 2 config
Get the image of the registry:
$ oc describe dc/docker-registry -n default | grep Image Image: registry.lab.example.com/openshift3/ose-docker-registry:v3.9.14
Delete Docker Registry
Since we know the image the registry was created from, we can easily recreate it.
Delete the registry and its service account:
$ oc delete all -l docker-registry -n default $ oc delete serviceaccounts/registry -n default $ oc delete clusterrolebindings/registry-registry-role -n default
Create a Docker Registry from the Image
Create a docker registry using the image:
$ oc adm registry \ --images=registry.lab.example.com/openshift3/ose-docker-registry:v3.9.14 \ --replicas=2 \ --selector='region=infra' \ -n default
Browse Docker Registry
To browse docker registry, you can install
$ sudo yum install python-flask python-requests git $ git clone https://github.com/vivekjuneja/docker_registry_cli $ cd docker_registry_cli
Run the following command to expose the integrated docker registry to the hostname intreg.lab.example.com:
$ oc expose service docker-registry \ --hostname=intreg.lab.example.com
The command will create a route with the same name as the service by default. Note that you will need to configure TLS security on the route, or allow insecure docker registries in
/etc/docker/daemon.json. Once done, you can list all images in the docker registry:
$ python ./browser.py intreg.lab.example.com list all
