rq to improve the way of downloading the software and patches for every Suite from the dockerhub

When user CDF, i would like to raise a request to improve the way of downloading the software and patches for every Suite from the dockerhub or provide with other source. A linux machine with internet connection is needed in order to download the bits. 

RQ: to document to be able to do it from Windows to make it quicker.

And if it is possible to have the script to execute the download previously, depending on the version. That would be also a help.

Already available. Docker runtime no longer required on target machine with internet access. On Windows machine you may need a linux shell subsystem as we do not provide Windows native scripts (.bat or powershell)

It would be very useful if we can download product Suite binaries before installation, in the same way we can download CDF + Vertica binaries from our Software Support web site.

Now we have a dependency on customer internet connection and installation tasks can take too much time, due to the need of configuring connection, proxies and so on, and also depending on available bandwith. Not to mention that some customers don't want to connect their servers to internet.

This new delivery pipeline allows us to quickly distribute assets and upgrades. Docker Hub remains our source of truth for GA’ed containerized assets. You can use the scripts before the install starts. This is already supported.

Hi Patrick,

One quick question here, can we have the script before running the installation? That is exactly what we need. To have the bits that have to be download from the dockerhub at the beginning without running any installation previously. And  related to be able to download the bits from a windows machine-> Any chance about providing also a document with some guidelines to  use a linux shell subsystem  as you mentioned?

Thank you very much & best regards,

Mónica.
